Want radiant, hydrated skin with that youthful glow? Look no further than Laser Genesis. The ExcelV Laser Genesis is a safe and effective anti-ageing laser treatment, which stimulates the production of collagen and elastin regrowth in the skin. The gentle laser used in Laser Genesis targets redness and improves the appearance of fine wrinkles, open pores and leaves the skin looking rejuvenated.
WHAT IS LASER GENESIS?
The Laser Genesis treatment uses a Nd: YAG 1064nm wavelength to treat the dermis – middle layer of our skin. The laser penetrates the top layer of the skin and delivers thousands of micro-pulses of light into the dermis without wounding our skin. These micro-pulses heat up the dermis and subsequently this warming action causes blood vessels to shrink and in turn reduces redness, breaks down scar tissue and stimulates collagen.
IS LASER GENESIS RIGHT FOR ME?
Laser Genesis is suitable for most skin types- even darker skin tones which may not be suitable for other types of laser treatments. It treats safely and effectively without disrupting the skin’s surface, therefore a vast range of skin types can be treated. Most people will benefit from this treatment although a consultation with our doctor is needed before proceeding. Depending on your condition, multiple treatments are usually required to achieve desired results.
WHAT DOES A LASER GENESIS TREATMENT INVOLVE?
The excel V laser genesis is a safe and effective laser treatment which uses high power micro second laser pulses delivered at a high repetition rate to deliver heat to the dermis. This bulk heating effect stimulates the reformation of new collagen and elastin in the skin, helping to naturally restore a more youthful glow to your skin.
Most people will find the laser genesis to be a relaxing experience. As it gently warms the skin the patient feels no discomfort, therefore no topical anesthetics are required.
There is no down time required after this treatment. Slight erythema (redness/flushing) may be present immediately following the treatment, but this subsides quickly after. Patients can expect to return to their daily activities as normal after the treatment.
BENEFITS OF LASER GENESIS
The genesis treatment effectively treats many skin conditions but for best results a course of 4-6 treatments are recommended.
Skin will appear smoother and more rejuvenated, other results to expect include:
- Suitable for all skin types / colours
- No down time
- Fades acne scarring
- Reduces redness / rosacea
- Reduces pore size
- Promotes new collagen production
- Softens fine lines
- Fades pigmentation (depending on type of pigment)
- Hydration levels increased
Immediately post Laser Genesis your skin will look mildly flushed and will feel warm for a few hours. As the surface of the skin is not disturbed you have no downtime with Laser Genesis treatment and after a few hours can return to normal activities. Mineral makeup may be applied. After approximately 2 days, your skin will appear healthier, more rejuvenated and hydrated.
This treatment can be performed as a stand-alone treatment 3-5 days before an event such as; birthday, wedding, special occasion however if treating a particular skin concern, it is best to have a series of 4-6 treatments at 3-4 week intervals.
This treatment can be complimented with the use of Fraxel Laser, Thermage Skin Tightening, Clear + Brilliant and an extensive skincare regime.
Our cosmetic therapists will discuss with you a customised treatment plan to offer the best pre and post care for your skin concerns to maximise and maintain your results.
EXCEL V - Vein And Pigmentation Treatment
Tired of constantly trying to cover up redness and broken capillaries? Excel V is the answer. An advanced medical laser treatment that uses dual wavelengths (532nm/1064nm) to treat a variety of vascular and pigmented conditions including superficial and deep vascular conditions, rosacea, sunspots.
WHAT IS EXCEL V?
The Excel V laser delivers pulses of light energy which cause the blood within the vein to coagulate, eventually destroying the vessel which is later reabsorbed and removed by the body. Blood flow will then be redirected to veins deeper below the skin’s surface. Similarly, with pigment, the laser energy is absorbed by the pigmented lesion causing the spot to darken and for a crust on the surface of the skin which will slough off.
BENEFITS OF EXCEL V?
• Suitable for most skin types / colours due to dual wavelengths
• Minimal down time
• Two wavelengths allow for greater treatment efficacy and allows you to treat a greater number of skin conditions / indications.
• Rosacea/Redness* > Telangiectasia (broken blood vessels / capillaries)
• Cherry Angiomas > Port Wine stains
• Red brown dyschromia > Poikiloderma
• Benign pigmented lesions > Age/sun spots
• Leg Veins > Scar reduction
* For Rosacea treatments a consultation is required with one of our doctors before undergoing any treatment.
IS EXCEL V RIGHT FOR ME?
A consultation with one of our doctors is required before treatment. It treats vascular conditions such as rosacea, cherry angiomas, port wine stains, telangiectasia and poikiloderma. It also treats benign pigmented lesions, age/brown spots and freckles.
WHAT DOES TREATMENT INVOLVE?
The laser works by sending pulses of light energy into the veins which causes the blood to coagulate, eventually destroying the vessel which is later re absorbed by the body. The blood is then redirected to flow further below the surface of the skin.
For pigmentation treatment energy from the Excel V is absorbed by the cells which contain excessive amounts of pigment. This stimulates the elimination of excess melanin while having little or no effect on surrounding skin/tissue.
No topical anesthetic is needed for this procedure, as Excel V uses a proprietary cooling mechanism to minimise discomfort.
Patients can expect minor redness and swelling immediately after but no downtime is required.
WHAT RESULTS CAN I EXPECT?
You can expect minor redness and swelling immediately after treatment. When treating pigmented spots, they may darken and form a small scab like crust which will slough off on its own after approximately 5-7 days.
Some superficial or smaller vessels can disappear immediately however, for deeper vessels a darkening may be noted and results are visible in 2-6 weeks.
The number of Excel V treatments required is variable depending on various parameters including; the size, thickness and colour of the vascular / pigmented lesion.
Some indications will have significant improvements after 1-2 sessions however in some cases a series of up to 6 treatments may be required for your desired result. During your initial consultation, we will discuss a customized treatment plan for your individual needs and will be able to give a more accurate guide to sessions required.
