Laser Genesis is a procedure that takes around 20 to 30 minutes and uses a handheld laser device. Patients will be required to wear black-out goggles to protect their eyes.
You may require several laser genesis treatment sessions to achieve your desired result. The number of treatments required will depend on your skin’s condition as well as your specific goals. A professional clinician from Face and Body Adelaide will be able to advise you on the number of treatment sessions you require during your personal consultation. On average, patients require between four and six treatments to achieve the ideal results.

Who is an ideal candidate for Laser Genesis treatments?
To begin with, your medical history and specific skin concerns will be discussed with a professional and Face and Body Adelaide to determine whether you are an ideal candidate for this treatment. Overall though, the treatment is ideal for almost anyone who wants to improve the appearance of their skin.
Can Genesis be combined with other procedures?
Depending on what you want to achieve, Laser Genesis can be added to a personalised treatment plan. Very often, patients choose to combine laser treatments with dermal fillers and anti-wrinkle injections to achieve a completely rejuvenated appearance.
Is there anything that I should do to prepare for my treatment?
While no special preparation is necessary, it is recommended that you not tan or spend prolonged periods in the sun for at least two weeks before your treatment. This is because the laser will end up picking up on the darker pigment in your skin and will result in your treatment being less effective. You will also need to leave your face makeup-free for your treatment.
