Laser Skin Rejuvenation
Discover the perfect non-invasive skin rejuvenation solution—Laser Genesis! Utilising our Nd:YAG laser, it targets skin texture, reduces fine lines, wrinkles, and even manages redness (great for rosacea!). Safe and effective for all skin types, this treatment requires no downtime.
Using a non-ablative laser, Laser Genesis gently heats the deeper layers of your skin, stimulating collagen production and promoting healthy skin cell growth. It’s a safe and gentle option, ensuring no damage to the surface.
Laser Genesis can also be combined with Limelight IPL for our exceptional 3D Renew treatment, optimising your skin’s results.
Our practitioner uses a handheld laser device to gently heat the deeper skin layers with a non-ablative wavelength, stimulating collagen production for improved texture and tone. Protective eyewear may be provided. The treatment is well-tolerated, with most feeling only a mild warming sensation. Each session takes about 30 minutes, and there’s no downtime—resume regular activities right away. Mild redness or swelling may occur but resolves within hours. Makeup or sunscreen can be applied immediately after the treatment. Enjoy the benefits of Laser Genesis without any interruption to your day.
Laser Genesis uses a specialized laser, like the Nd:YAG laser, to gently heat the skin’s deeper layers without harming the surface (non-ablative). This stimulates collagen production, resulting in firmer, smoother, and more elastic skin. It improves skin texture, reduces fine lines, wrinkles, pigmentation, and manages redness like rosacea. Safe for all skin types, it requires no downtime. Laser Genesis is effective, non-invasive, and allows for immediate return to regular activities.
The results of Laser Genesis treatments can last for several months to a year or more, depending on various factors such as age, skin type, and lifestyle habits.
To maintain your results, it’s important to take good care of your skin by following a consistent skincare routine and protecting your skin from sun damage. Additionally, you may need occasional touch-up treatments to maintain your results over time.
Our Fitzrovia team will work with you to develop a customised treatment plan that meets your individual needs and goals. They can also recommend skincare products and lifestyle habits that can help you achieve and maintain the best possible results from your Laser Genesis treatments.
Laser Genesis is beneficial for managing rosacea due to its ability to target the redness and inflammation associated with the condition. The treatment uses a non-ablative laser to gently heat the deeper layers of the skin, which can reduce the dilation of blood vessels and lessen the appearance of redness and flushing commonly seen in rosacea.
By stimulating collagen production and promoting healthy skin cell growth, Laser Genesis helps to strengthen the skin’s barrier function and reduce sensitivity. This can lead to a reduction in skin redness and overall improvement in the symptoms of rosacea.
Laser Genesis, as a non-ablative laser treatment, is generally considered safe and should not directly affect dermal fillers. However the depth of filler placement and the depth of heat generated by the laser can influence how long the filler might last. Superficially placed fillers may be more vulnerable to certain laser treatments, potentially leading to less immediate correction of treated wrinkles.
To minimise any potential interactions between Laser Genesis and dermal fillers, it’s generally recommended to have laser treatments before filler injections. Alternatively, if both treatments are required, spacing them apart by several weeks or months is advised. This allows the filler to settle and ensures that the laser treatment has no adverse effects on the filler’s longevity.
To prepare for Laser Genesis treatment:
- Consult our experienced Fitzrovia practitioners for a personalized plan.
- Avoid excessive sun exposure and tanning beds to reduce side effect risks.
- Refrain from using harsh skincare products like retinoids or exfoliants for a week before treatment.
- Wear comfortable clothing for relaxation during the session.
One of the benefits of Laser Genesis is that there is little to no downtime associated with the treatment. Most people can return to their normal daily activities immediately after the treatment.
In some cases, your skincare professional may recommend that you avoid certain activities for a few hours after the treatment, such as swimming or using hot tubs, to minimise the risk of infection or irritation.
Overall, Laser Genesis is a very safe and well-tolerated treatment with minimal downtime.
While Laser Genesis is considered a safe and non-invasive treatment for many individuals, its effects on pregnancy have not been thoroughly studied. As a precautionary measure, it is best to wait until after pregnancy and breastfeeding before considering any laser or cosmetic treatments.
