Treatments with our Certified Laser Technicians in Birmingham, Alabama can be performed in a relaxed, comfortable manner without the use of topical anesthetics or gel.

Laser Genesis Frequently Asked Questions

What areas can be treated with Laser Genesis?

Laser Genesis patients report excellent results over their face and neck. This non-invasive laser therapy may also be used to diminish recent scars on other parts of the body.

What is diffuse redness?

Diffuse redness is a general appearance of facial redness, such as rosy cheeks. This condition is caused by dilated capillaries, resulting in an appearance of general redness, not rather than discrete, well-defined vessels. The most commonly affected areas are the nose, forehead and cheeks. Diffuse redness is often associated with a condition called rosacea and can be hereditary. Laser Genesis helps your appearance by gently treating and reducing this condition.

What does Laser Genesis feel like?

Patients often describe the treatment as relaxing and therapeutic. You will experience a gentle warming of your skin's surface during the procedure as the laser handpiece is moved back and forth about a half-inch above your skin. You can expect to immediately return to normal activities, utilizing sunscreen if participating in outdoor activities.

How does Laser Genesis work?

Laser Genesis stimulates the regrowth of collagen by gently heating the upper dermis well below the surface of your skin. Additional heat is generated in dilated capillaries to reduce the appearance of redness.

What can I expect before treatment?

You will not need to apply any gel, anesthetic cream or ice prior to treatment. Before the actual Laser Genesis treatment, you will be asked to remove your make-up or moisturizers. In some cases you may be asked to shave the area to be treated. Your laser technician at Hedden Plastic Surgery & Spa Greystone will review and assist with all pre-treatment requirements.

How many Laser Genesis treatments will I need?

The results of treatment are often subtle. On average, you may require four to six treatments in order to achieve optimal results. Every patient's condition and needs vary. For more information about your expected results or the number of treatments necessary, contact our laser technicians in Birmingham, Alabama to make an appointment for your skin assessment.

What are the possible side effects?

Although most patients report few if any side effects, the most common is a slight redness that disappears within a few hours of treatment. The skin care professionals at Hedden Plastic Surgery & Spa Greystone can provide you with complete information about the benefits and risks of treatment.

What kind of textural improvements can I expect?

Over the course of four to five treatments, Laser Genesis can help restore your skin's youthful glow and appearance by smoothing out uneven textures caused by aging, sun damage or scars. You will see a more creamy, healthy complexion, large pores are reduced in size, and minor imperfections are diminished. Individual treatment results are subtle, but the overall effect of multiple treatments can be quite dramatic.
