Halcyon Cosmetic is a trusted provider of Laser Genesis skin treatments to clients in Coquitlam, Port Coquitlam and Port Moody. Our clients come to us from other parts of Greater Vancouver, Burnaby and the Fraser Valley for our expertise, professionalism and customer service.
We use the Cutera Laser Genesis. Laser Genesis is a non-ablative and non-invasive laser that stimulates collagen production to promote healthier, younger looking skin with no down time. If you have considered laser skin rejuvenation, but don’t know where to begin, Laser Genesis is for you.
The Laser Genesis is a warm, comfortable laser treatment that is safe for all skin types. Although very comfortable, Laser Genesis is a skin rejuvenation treatment that treats deeply into the dermis to target:
Laser Genesis uses heat and a specific wavelength of laser to bypass the epidermal (outermost) layer of the skin and treat deeply into the dermis. Collagen production slows dramatically with age. Heat from the laser works to denature existing, damaged collagen and then triggers your skin to form healthy, new collagen for improved tone and texture.
There are many, many lasers on the market, some of which come from reputable manufacturers and many that do not. There are also many devices marketed as “lasers” that are not true lasers (such as IPL). Our Laser Genesis is a true, 1064nm Nd:YAG, Class IV laser manufactured by Cutera, a company that manufactures medical devices and is highly respected by physicians and the medical community.
Laser Genesis is a very comfortable procedure and, as such, is a great introduction to laser skin treatments. The overall feeling of the procedure is a gentle warming of the skin although some clients, especially those with a lot of redness in their skin, will find the laser a little warmer. This is simply because there is more “target” present in the skin to absorb the laser energy.
Laser Genesis treatments require virtually no downtime although the skin may appear slightly pink immediately after treatment, especially sensitive skin. Pigmented lesions may also appear slightly darker. After all laser treatments you should be sure to protect your skin with a daily SPF of at least 30.
This depends on your goals and the response of your skin. In some instances just one treatment is effective, but generally a series of 3-8 treatments are required for optimal improvement. Treatments are spaced 4-8 weeks apart unless your goal is to minimize flushing or rosacea, laser treatments should be done 1-2 weeks apart.
Laser Genesis will stimulate collagen and elastin production to strengthen and thicken your own cellular matrix, so results are long-lasting, although your skin will continue to age.
