No downtime! This has to be one of my favorite laser treatments. Let me introduce you to the Cutera Laser Genesis. My nickname for this laser is my ‘Airbrush’. It treats anything from rosacea to acne to large pores. It’s even great for just rejuvenating the skin tone and texture.
What is the treatment like?
Laser for facial rejuvenation is definitely the most ‘relaxing’ laser treatment you can have. A full face treatment lasts about 20 minutes and just feels like warm rays of sunshine on each area being treated.
How many laser treatments do I need?
Depending on what you’re trying to treat, generally 6 treatments are needed with one every 2-4 weeks. With this laser, a maintenance treatment every few months will keep your results in tip-top shape.
What to expect after laser treatment.
Usually, a slightly pink complexion is noticed post treatment. However, this generally resides within just a couple of hours. In the days following treatment, your skin is generally more hydrated, supple and, well, ‘airbrushed’.
Who can NOT have this treatment?
Anyone with a sunburn, dark tan, tattooed makeup over the area to be treated, skin infections, anyone pregnant/breastfeeding, or anyone on certain acne medications such as Roaccutane. However, this is one of the few lasers where virtually any skin type and color can be treated.
