How can I effectively improve my skin using Laser?
The Cutera CoolGlide system for Laser Genesis is a non-invasive approach that uses laser technology to safely and gently heat the papillary dermis of the skin.
Brief treatment overview
Over the course of 4–6 treatments the pores are reduced in size and minor skin imperfections become less noticeable. The laser handpiece is moved back and forth above the skin to increase haemaglobin absorption which helps repair the fine upper vascularities and upper dermis of the skin. The treatment time depends on the area of the body being treated. However, most treatments should be 30–60 minutes.
Who is it suitable for?
Laser Genesis is ideal for anyone with obvious open pores, complexion redness and, in some cases, pigmentation in darker skin types.
What to expect
A comfortable and gentle warming of the epidermis is experienced as pulses of laser light are delivered to each area. Slight redness will follow the treatment dissipating rapidly.
Most patients have few, if any side effects. The most common is slight redness that disappears very soon after the treatment. Cooling is not recommended as the treatment needs to heat the skin layers in order to be effective.
Preparing for the treatment
Before treatment, all make-up, sunscreens and moisturisers are washed off with an appropriate cleanser to remove any residual impurities for an optimal result; In some cases, shaving may be required. No gels or anaesthetic creams are required for this treatment.
Where is the treatment performed?
All treatments for Laser Genesis will be performed at Rosalie Cosmetic Medicine by our Qld Health Licensed Laser Therapist.
Afterwards, getting back to normal
Make up can be applied immediately if the required area is visible to sun exposure and a suitable sunscreen will be recommended, as well as a prescribed skin care regime relevant to your condition. 30+ sunscreen is essential at all times during treatment cycles, particularly during outdoor activities.
Over the course of 4–6 treatments you will notice that the skin will restore to a more youthful glow and appearance. You will see a more creamy, healthy and clearer complexion and the larger pores will reduce in size, and redness will be less noticeable. The individual treatment results are subtle in some cases, but the overall effect of multiple treatments can be quite dramatic.
