Aging can wreak havoc on your skin. No matter how well you clean, tone, moisturize, and avoid the sun, you may still have fine lines, wrinkles, and uneven texture. You may also have unsightly scars that won’t resolve. The Cutera XEO’s® Laser Genesis™ skin-care treatment tool can improve the tone, texture, and quality of your skin safely and painlessly. If you’re ready for skin that glows again, and you live in Raleigh or the surrounding areas, contact Dr. Jane Smith online or by phone at VeinCare of Central North Carolina.

Laser Genesis Q & A

What is Laser Genesis™?

The XEO’s  device from Cutera is a noninvasive Nd:YAG laser treatment that can even out your skin’s texture and resolve fine lines, wrinkles, reddened skin, and scars. Any area of your face, neck, or décolletage can be treated with Laser Genesis. It can also be used to diminish the appearance of scars on other areas of your body.

Laser Genesis is a pain-free procedure that feels almost as relaxing as a facial. During your therapy, you will feel a warm sensation as the wand passes a half inch above your skin.

There is no downtime following a Laser Genesis treatment. You may experience slight redness of the skin after your treatment, but this should fade within a day or two. You can return to your normal activities directly after treatment. Be sure to wear sunscreen if you are outdoors or driving.

What makes Laser Genesis so effective?

In addition to targeting lesions and irregularities on the skin’s surface, such as wrinkles and enlarged pores, Laser Genesis reaches down into the dermis, where it heats up and stimulates the collagen. The collagen layer then produces new collagen, just as if it were young skin.

The Laser Genesis’ ability to stimulate the production of new collagen is one of the qualities that sets it apart from other skin texture treatments. 

If you have diffused redness in your skin or suffer from rosacea, Cutera XEO’s Laser Genesis technology can help with that, too. The heat from its laser energy constricts dilated capillaries to reduce the appearance of redness.

How many treatments will I need?

For optimal results, you should receive four to six treatments, spaced about a month apart. Annual touch-ups are also recommended to keep your skin smooth and toned and to re-stimulate the production of new collagen.

If you would like to boost your skin’s production of collagen and rejuvenate your look without surgery or invasive therapies, contact VeinCare of Central North Carolina for a Cutera Laser Genesis consultation.
