As the years go by, signs of aging and sun damage often start to pile up and steal the youthful radiance of your complexion. You may be frustrated to see things like hyperpigmentation and wrinkles in the mirror. If your skincare products aren’t yielding your desired results, it may be time to revive your skin with Laser Genesis.
What is Laser Genesis?
Laser Genesis is a non-invasive cosmetic laser treatment used to improve the overall appearance and health of the skin. This innovative procedure can be used to treat fine lines, wrinkles, acne scars, uneven skin texture, and redness. These issues often trace back to a lack of collagen, an essential fiber that gives your skin firmness and support but that naturally decreases as we age.
Essential Med Clinic & Aesthetics uses the Cutera xeo® and excel® HR technology for our innovative laser treatments. Laser Genesis is safe for all skin types and can be used on the face, neck, chest, and hands. It is often beneficial for those with stubborn complexion issues like acne scars or rosacea, as it can help reduce redness and improve skin texture.
Laser Genesis is an effective option for those who want to significantly improve the appearance of their skin without undergoing more invasive treatments such as surgery. This popular treatment is gentle and requires no downtime, making it a convenient option for those with busy schedules.

How Does Laser Genesis Skin Rejuvenation Work?
Laser Genesis skin rejuvenation works by using a laser to gently heat the deeper layers of the skin, stimulating collagen production and improving circulation. The laser delivers a high-energy pulse of light that is absorbed by the skin, causing it to heat up. This heat stimulates the production of new collagen, which helps improve the skin’s texture and firmness. Laser Genesis also targets the blood vessels in the skin, which can help to reduce redness and improve the overall tone and clarity of the skin.
The procedure typically takes about 30 minutes to an hour, depending on the area being treated. It is painless and requires no anesthesia, although patients may experience a mild warming sensation during the treatment. Most patients require multiple treatments to achieve optimal results, typically spaced about four weeks apart.
How Much Does Laser Genesis Cost?
The cost of any cosmetic treatment varies based on several factors, such as location and provider experience. Patients in areas with a high cost of living can expect to pay more than those in lower-cost areas, and choosing a board-certified, experienced provider can also increase the price. However, your provider’s expertise is crucial to safe, effective treatment.
The national average cost of Laser Genesis is estimated to be $723. Your unique treatment may be very different, however. How large of an area is being treated and how many sessions you need will also affect the overall cost.
What Skin Conditions Can Laser Genesis Treat?
Laser Genesis is a versatile treatment that can improve the overall health and appearance of the skin. It is a safe and effective option for all skin types and can be used on various parts of the body, including the face, neck, chest, and hands. By stimulating collagen production and improving circulation, Laser Genesis can help give you smoother, firmer, and more even-toned skin.
Here are some of the skin concerns that Laser Genesis can treat:
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Acne scars
- Uneven skin texture and tone
- Redness and rosacea
- Enlarged pores
- Melasma, dark spots, and other hyperpigmentation issues
Is There Any Downtime After Laser Genesis?
Unlike some more aggressive laser skin rejuvenation treatments, Laser Genesis has minimal side effects and typically requires no downtime. You can return to your usual activities right after the treatment and can even wear makeup the same day.
Some patients may experience mild redness and swelling for the first day or two. Apply a gentle moisturizer and avoid any irritating or harsh products while your skin heals, such as retinoids or acids. It’s also best to avoid sun exposure and significant heat or steam during this time.
Laser Genesis Treatment Results
The results of Laser Genesis can be seen relatively quickly, with many patients noticing improvements in the texture, tone, and overall appearance of their skin after just one or two treatments. However, optimal results are typically achieved after a series of three to six treatments spaced a month or so apart.
One of the most appealing aspects of Laser Genesis is that the results are typically long-lasting. Since the treatment stimulates collagen production and improves circulation, the benefits can continue to be seen for several months after the last treatment. While the exact duration of the results will vary depending on the individual and the specific skin concerns being treated, many patients enjoy long-lasting benefits. You can expect your results to last approximately six months to a year.

How Often Should I Get Laser Genesis Treatments?
Every patient’s treatment plan will be a little different, depending on their unique skin concerns and goals. In general, most patients undergo a series of three to six Laser Genesis sessions, spaced approximately one month apart, to achieve optimal results. However, you may need fewer treatments to improve mild skin concerns or more to treat certain issues like acne scars.
After the initial series of treatments, you can preserve your healthier, more radiant skin with occasional follow-up sessions. These maintenance treatments are typically spaced several months apart and can help prolong the benefits of Laser Genesis. Ultimately, the recommended frequency of Laser Genesis treatments will depend on the individual’s goals and skin health.
Am I a Good Candidate for Laser Genesis?
Laser Genesis is a versatile treatment that is a safe and effective treatment for most people. It can be used to address a range of skin concerns, including fine lines, wrinkles, acne scars, uneven texture, redness, and more. Whether you want to improve your skin’s appearance or simply maintain its overall health, Laser Genesis can be an excellent option.
Ideal candidates for Laser Genesis are those who are in good overall health and have realistic expectations for the treatment. While Laser Genesis is safe for all skin types, those with darker skin tones may require a different type of laser to achieve optimal results. During your consultation with Dr. Cobbinah, she’ll assess your skin and discuss your cosmetic goals to determine the best treatment plan.
