Candela’s Gentle Max Pro utilizes advanced technology allows for use of controlled heat that penetrates deep into the skins cellular layer to promote new skin cells, stimulate collagen, minimize the appearance of large pores and kill acne causing bacteria while simultaneously treating redness and tightening the skin.
Laser Genesis kick-starts new collagen production, to repair signs of aging and sun damage. A non-ablative laser (meaning that it doesn’t remove the skin’s top layer), it uses micropulse technology, firing short bursts of energy so quickly that it doesn’t damage the skin’s surface. In the hands of an experienced provider, it can safely treat fine lines, uneven texture, dullness, redness, rosacea, large pores, and acne scars, all without downtime.
The Laser Genesis device can safely treat skin anywhere on the face or body, and it’s often combined with other procedures, for optimal results. One of the major benefits of this laser treatment is that it’s much less likely to trigger hyperpigmentation in patients with dark skin, unlike many other lasers.
Who’s a good candidate for Laser Genesis?
Laser Genesis is gentle enough for all skin types and tones. If you’re pregnant or nursing, avoid all laser treatments. Additionally, if you have any irritation in the treatment area, such as a wound, cut, or rash, skip the lasers until you’re healed. If you’ve used isotretinoin (Accutane) in the past 12 months, ask your doctor if your skin can safely handle a laser procedure.
What happens during Laser Genesis treatment?
The Laser Genesis procedure starts with cleaning the skin. Numbing cream is usually unnecessary. It affects the blood vessels, so you may not get as much of a redness-reducing benefit from Laser Genesis if you apply it beforehand. You’ll be given protective eyewear before the treatment starts. As the laser’s handpiece glides over the skin, you’ll feel subtle warmth and tingling. After the treatment, your technician may apply a moisturizer, hydrating serum, followed by sunscreen.
