Frequently Asked Questions
Laser Genesis is a non-ablative laser that uses high-power microsecond pulses to heat up dermis tissue at a high repetitive rate, without actually destroying it. Unlike most skin treatment methods, Laser Genesis treats the skin inside out by penetrating deep into the skin’s cellular layer. This will stimulate the natural production of collagen to fill in unwanted skin imperfections such as fine lines, wrinkles and scars.
Laser Genesis is built using YAG technology that emits a specific wavelength to target the skin. Because of its wavelength and energy, Laser Genesis can be safely used on all skin types, ideally for light to medium skin tones. For darker skin tones, the laser parameters are carefully adjusted to suit your skin type and quality to prevent adverse events and optimise treatment results.
Laser Genesis is popularly used to treat skin problems on the face, neck, shoulders, back and chest to improve skin quality.
Here are the notable skin problems that the Laser Genesis can help to treat:
- Rosacea and mild acne
- Scarring from burns, injury and surgery
- Freckles on the face, neck and décolletage
- Poor skin texture such as brown pigmentation, hyperpigmentation and melasma
- Fine lines and wrinkles around the eyes and mouth
- Thinned skin lacking suppleness
Most Laser Genesis procedures take about 30 minutes. The procedure is painless with no downtime.
Before the actual treatment, our doctor will review your medical history to ensure you are deemed suitable for the Laser Genesis treatment. You will be asked to sign a consent form.
Our specially trained staff at The Lime Tree Clinic will cleanse your skin to remove make-up or skin moisturisers, if any, and place goggles on your eyes for protection during the procedure.
You will experience a pleasant warm, tingling sensation on your skin during the procedure.
You can resume your normal daily activities immediately after the procedure. You may experience temporary redness and mild swelling after the treatment, but this will disappear within a day.
In the rare case that you experience any blistering, scabbing, or prolonged redness and swelling, please contact our clinic as soon as possible.
Sun protection and avoiding alcohol is important to ensure optimal results.
Laser Genesis produces subtle results at first. The results will increase gradually over the next two months as increasing collagen levels in the deeper levels promote smoother and more beautiful skin outside. Pigmentation and redness will reduce and skin tone will be more even. A healthy lifestyle, along with good skincare routine, will help to maintain the treatment results.
Multiple treatments or ongoing maintenance treatments are recommended for optimal outcomes. Our doctor will work closely with you to develop a laser treatment plan specific to your needs.
