With Cutera Xeo® Laser Genesis you can start restoring your skin's healthy appearance and addressing visible imperfections such as sun damage, fine lines, large pores, redness and scarring. The Laser Genesis stimulates the skin's natural renewal process to improve overall skin quality, resulting in a radiant, more youthful complexion. The procedure is non-invasive and takes less than hour and you could even do the treatment over your lunchtime. Many say this procedure is relaxing.
Are there any side effects from the treatment.
It is typical for our patients to report minimal to no side effects. The most common side effect of those noted is a slight redness in the treated area that generally disappears within 30 to 60 minutes after your procedure. A possible side effect of the Laser Genesis treatment is reduced hair growth in the treated area. Male patients should consult their physician about this possibility if their problem area involves skin where their beard grows. There is zero downtime following your treatment at Skin Envy Med Spa. Still, we recommend that patients use sunscreen if they participate in outdoor activities after their session.
What does Laser Genesis Treat?
Laser Genesis treats many skin conditions that affect your skin’s texture, tone, appearance, and youthfulness. Specific needs which may benefit from a treatment session include:
Patients experience a gentle warming of the skin’s surface during the procedure. Our patients often describe the process as relaxing and restorative. Local anesthetic or pain medication is not required as patients usually find the treatment comfortable.
In that case, your provider may ask you to wear protective goggles during your treatment as a precaution. Laser Genesis treatments typically take 30 and 60 minutes, depending on the size of the treated site. You will not experience any downtime after your session. You may resume your regular schedule even if it includes strenuous activities. You may experience mild redness or irritation of the skin right after your treatment; however, these symptoms generally fade within an hour of your treatment session.
