VITAHL Chicago is committed to helping you achieve your aesthetic goals. Our practice offers a comprehensive suite of options to address all your aesthetic medical needs, and we focus on treatments which provide our patients with safe, effective and non-invasive alternatives for facial and body rejuvenation. One such treatment is Laser Genesis.

Laser Genesis — a favorite procedure with many Hollywood A-listers — offers skin rejuvenation as well as treatment for many common skin conditions which may affect the quality and appearance of your skin. This treatment is ideal for anyone looking to revive their skin and achieve a youthful glow or remedy blemishes, redness or scarring. Laser Genesis effectively improves many common skin conditions, leaving patients to enjoy restored skin texture, tone and youthfulness with minimized blemishes, scars and redness.

How does Laser Genesis work?

Laser Genesis, a non-ablative treatment, works by mildly heating the upper dermis — the middle layer of your skin — which stimulates the growth and production of collagen. The laser also targets small facial capillaries which helps to diminish redness and improve rosacea and Poikiloderma of Civatte. Over the course of several treatments, Laser Genesis can rejuvenate the skin and restore a youthful glow and appearance. The results of individual treatments are subtle, but multiple treatments can result in a dramatic change in the youthfulness and clarity of skin’s appearance.

What concern areas can Laser Genesis improve?

Laser Genesis can treat skin conditions that affect many areas of the body. The face, neck, and chest are the most common areas to be treated by Laser Genesis, but Laser Genesis is safe for use in treatment wherever you have skin concerns.

Are there any side effects?

The majority of patients report minimal to no side effects. The most common side effect of those reported is a slight redness in the treated area that usually disappears within 30 to 60 minutes following treatment. A possible side effect of a Laser Genesis treatment is reduced hair growth in the treated area. Male patients should talk to their doctor about this possibility if their concern area includes skin where beard growth occurs. There is no downtime following a Laser Genesis procedure, but we do recommend patients use sunscreen if participating in outdoor activities after their Laser Genesis treatment session.

What does Laser Genesis treat?

Laser Genesis treats many skin conditions which affect the texture, tone, appearance and youthfulness of your skin. Specific conditions which may benefit from a Laser Genesis treatment include:

  • rosacea
  • enlarged pores
  • uneven texture
  • fine lines
  • wrinkles
  • scarring
  • Poikiloderma of Civatte
  • skin redness

Am I a candidate for Laser Genesis?

Men and women suffering from skin discoloration, facial scarring, and aging symptoms such as fine lines, wrinkles and poor skin tone may benefit from a Laser Genesis skin treatment. Laser Genesis is also ideal for all skin types. You must have good initial health during your in-person examination with your VITAHL cosmetic medicine specialist and also at the time of your procedure. Contraindications for Laser Genesis include, for women, pregnancy, currently breastfeeding women or lactating women.

What can I expect during my Laser Genesis treatment session?

During the procedure, you’ll experience a gentle warming of the skin’s surface. Our patients often describe the procedure as relaxing and restorative. No local anesthetic or pain medication is required as patients typically find the treatment comfortable. If the facial area is to be treated with Laser Genesis, your doctor may ask you to wear protective goggles during your treatment as a precaution. Treatments usually take between 30 and 60 minutes depending on the size of the treated area. You will not have any downtime after your Laser Genesis treatment, and you may resume your normal schedule even if it includes more strenuous activities. You may experience some mild redness or irritation of the skin immediately after your treatment; however, these symptoms typically fade within an hour of your procedure.

When will I see results?

Results can take up to three to four weeks to appear as the new cells reach the surface of the skin and the body’s collagen production increases. Every individual is different, however, so your results may take more or less time to appear, which is natural. Improvements will continue to appear over the coming weeks after your procedure.

How long will my results last?

The results of a Laser Genesis treatment will vary from individual to individual. However, most patients enjoy results which last between six and 12 months before follow-up treatments will be necessary. Also, the number of treatments you will need can vary depending on your aesthetic goals and your skin condition before you begin treatment. However, VITAHL Chicago typically recommends starting with five to ten treatments spaced about two to four weeks apart to obtain best results.
