Photo Genesis is an innovative way to quickly, safely and comfortably improve your skin’s texture, tone and color on your face, chest, arms, and hands, without gel or topical anesthetics. Signs of sun damage and age spots will usually flake off after one or two treatments, leaving clearer, youngerlooking skin.
The Photo Genesis difference.
Comfort. We have created a pulsed light system that is
exceptionally effective for treating skin redness (rosacea),
brown spots and sun damage at a very comfortable
energy level. There is no need to apply topical anesthetic or
gel beforehand, and you can realize remarkable results in
just one or two treatments.
What areas can be treated?
Virtually any part of your body with uneven skin tone, diffuse
redness, or sun and age spots can be safely treated. The
face, chest, shoulders and arms are the most popular areas
for treatment because they have typically had the most sun
exposure. Discrete brown spots, excessively ruddy complexions
and skin densely covered with freckles respond
well to treatment.
What does the treatment do?
The visible light delivered by the Photo Genesis procedure
is selectively absorbed by the pigmented spots and red
areas on your skin. It’s the heating of the pigmented cells
that causes the therapeutic effect.
Will I need to have an anesthetic?
No. Unlike other systems, the Photo Genesis treatment
requires no topical anesthetic or gel before treatment. Gel is
messy, time consuming, and uncomfortable. Photo Genesis
is the next generation in pulsed light treatments.
What do treatments feel like?
When the handpiece is placed on your skin, it will feel
cool and comfortable. When the pulse of light is delivered,
you may feel a mild, brief pinching sensation.
How long will the treatment take?
The actual treatment will only take a few minutes.
And, since there is no need to apply gel or any topical
anesthetic, your total appointment time can easily fit within
your lunch hour.
How many treatments will I need?
Typically, one or two treatments are sufficient to see
dramatic results. Additional treatments may be required for
very large or dark spots, densely freckled areas, or excessively
sun damaged skin.
What happens after the treatment?
Immediately following the treatment, the spots may
start to darken. You may notice a slight reddening of the
surrounding skin. This typically subsides within a couple
of hours. Over the course of the next one to three weeks,
darkened spots will fade and flake off. Your mottled
complexion will clear. Consult with your medical professional
for complete information on the benefits and risks of treatment.
When will I see results?
Many patients see significant improvement within two to three
weeks of treatment. Your complexion will be clearer and
younger looking. However, your final result may not be
apparent for a month or more.
Will the spots and redness reappear over time?
Over time new spots may appear if there is sufficient sun exposure.
These too can be removed. Remember to liberally apply
sunscreen when outdoors to minimize sun damage and the
appearance of new spots and excessive redness.
