Experience Skin Magic with Cutera Laser Genesis

Posted on in MedSpa by Zac

Providers and clinic owners in the world of dermatology practices and medspas know to always be on the lookout for the best and most efficient skincare equipment for their clients. With Cutera Laser Genesis, Cutera offers a non-invasive, no-downtime laser therapy treatment that could revolutionize your practice – and give your clients younger, healthier-looking skin!

What is Laser Genesis?

So what makes Cutera Laser Genesis so unique? This FDA-approved treatment uses a near-infrared Nd:YAG laser with a 1064nm wavelength to deliver short, controlled pulses into the patient’s skin. Unlike many other laser treatments Laser Genesis is non-ablative, a laser procedure that treats skin problems without injuring the skin’s surface.

When applied, the controlled heat of the laser targets the dermis just below the surface of the skin. This targeted heat then stimulates the production of collagen and elastin within the body. Collagen, the most abundant protein in the human body, is what gives skin firmness and strength, while elastin is a protein with – as it says right there in the name – a high degree of elasticity. While the body naturally slows in producing these proteins over time, the heat generated by Laser Genesis stimulates the body’s natural processes to generate new proteins, leading to improvements in the skin’s quality and appearance.

Cutera Laser Genesis also constricts blood vessels, and closes veins and capillaries in the skin. Breaking these down releases and dissipates blood trapped under the surface of the epidermis, reducing overall redness in the skin’s appearance. Additionally, this treatment helps shrink pores on the face, helping further to reduce fine lines and rough skin in that area.

What Does it Treat?

Cutera Laser Genesis can be used to address a wide variety of skin concerns. Although the process is suited for most places on the body, treatments usually focus on the face, neck, shoulders, decolletage, or hands. Typically, the primary use of Laser Genesis is to diminish the appearance of scarring, enlarged pores, and broken blood vessels. It’s also effective in smoothing the skin to reduce the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, and dark spots, and for diffusing redness and pigmentation in the face that can be caused by rosacea, rosy cheeks, melasma, and hyperpigmentation. 

This treatment is a revitalizing one, stimulating collagen production and new cell growth to ultimately produce a natural, youthful, and healthy look to the patient’s skin.

What Patients Can Expect From Cutera Laser Genesis 

Cutera Laser Genesis technology is a huge boon for any business offering cosmetic treatments for a variety of reasons. The first of these is that Laser Genesis is an extremely versatile treatment, available to a huge variety of people. Laser Genesis treatments can be used effectively on just about any part of the body, besides the eyeballs and surrounding area, and work on people of all ages and all skin tones (with the exception of pregnant women, who should abstain from seeking laser treatments of any kind). 

Additionally, there is very little risk associated with this procedure! Cutera Laser Genesis is actually often described as a relaxing or therapeutic treatment, as the primary sensation while being treated is usually described as feeling light heat, like sun on one’s face. Depending on the treatment, there also may be a very slight burning or ‘snapping’ sensation.

Clients will need to wear goggles and in some cases have their hair covered for the duration, but they do not require anesthesia. The most common side effects of the treatment are slight swelling or some redness, but this will typically clear on its own within a few days of receiving the treatment. 

Laser Genesis, like other non-invasive cosmetic treatments, is also extremely convenient, especially for clients who are busy or on-the-go, as the procedure usually takes about half an hour and requires little to no recovery downtime afterward. For best results, someone being treated with Cutera Laser Genesis will usually need three to six treatments, possibly with an additional yearly maintenance procedure.
