Newport Beach Medical Spa

The Laser Genesis skin therapy by Cutera® is an effective way to promote vibrant healthy looking skin and improve skin disorders and pigmented areas.

Laser Genesis treats common conditions typically associated with premature signs of aging, sun damage, large pores, uneven skin texture, fine lines and wrinkles. It is also used to treat Rosacea, port wine stains, acne scarring, and other mild scarring.

The Laser Genesis is non-invasive and requires no numbing prior to treatment and no downtime. It is an effective solution for improving your overall complexion.

COM-PLEX-ION(noun) The natural color, texture, and appearance of a person’s skin, especially of the face.

What Areas Can be Treated?

Laser Genesis is primarily used on the face, neck, and chest, however, in some cases, it may be used to reduce the visibility of recent scars or vascular birthmarks (port wine stains) on other parts of the body.

How Does the Genesis Laser Work?

The Genesis laser uses advanced technology to gently heat various levels of the dermis. The thermal energy increases collagen production, breaks down damaged capillaries, and shrinks pores. Results are subtle at first, with benefits being noticed over time as the regenerated collagen renews the skin, creating a youthful healthy glow. A series of Genesis treatments performed at specified intervals are necessary to achieve optimal results.

How many Treatments are Needed?

The BioSpa recommends a series of 4 to 6 treatments to achieve the best outcome. Each individual’s skin condition and needs vary, therefore, we do require a skin analysis prior to treatment to determine the best treatment plan.

What to Expect:

BEFORE GENESIS LASER TREATMENT – Prior to your Genesis laser treatment you will have a consultation to determine if you are a good candidate. If so, a treatment plan will be outlined and detailed instructions will be given so you can properly prepare.

On the day of your treatment, you will be advised not to wear make-up or moisturizers or to remove it upon arrival. Depending on the area/s being treated, you may also be advised to shave.

DURING GENESIS LASER TREATMENT – You will not need gel, anesthetic cream, or ice prior to your Genesis laser treatment. Patients often describe the treatment as relaxing and therapeutic. You will experience a warm, tingling sensation on the skin’s surface as the laser hand piece is moved back and forth just above your skin. Treatments usually last 30 minutes. There is no pain associated with the Genesis laser treatment.

AFTER GENESIS LASER TREATMENT – You can immediately return to normal activities. You will not experience bruising or swelling. We strongly encourage you to use a high quality SPF 30 or higher sunscreen when outdoors.

About the Common Issues Treated With the Laser Genesis

  • Rosacea – Ongoing facial redness, such as rosy cheeks, which is caused by small dilated capillaries. The most commonly affected areas are the nose, forehead and cheeks. Laser Genesis gently treats Rosacea reducing the appearance of the dilated capillaries. Multiple treatments are necessary to achieve marked improvement.
  • Port wine stain – Also known as a vascular “birthmark.” Discoloration appears red, blue or purple, and is frequently seen on the face or neck, but it can also appear on the arms, legs or trunk. Port wine stains will never completely go away, but the Laser Genesis will help it fade, resulting in a less obvious mark.
  • Acne scarring – After ongoing acne breakouts, pores can remain enlarged, causing the skin to look rough and uneven. Enlarged pores and acne scarring can leave the skin open to bacteria and dirt, which can result in future breakouts. The Laser Genesis reduces the size of pores and appearance of scarring resulting in healthier more vibrant looking skin. Multiple treatments are necessary.
