How does Laser Genesis Work?
Laser Genesis stimulates new skin cell growth and collagen production which smooths fine lines; shrinks pore size; evens out rough skin texture; and fades scarring. This amazing laser procedure also closes down the tiny veins and capillaries that cause persistent redness of the skin. The effect that Laser Genesis has on your skin is a gradual one. Most of our clients begin to see an improvement in their skin after halfway through their treatment series (after about 3 or 4 treatments). For optimal results most people need 6-10 treatments.
