If you are looking for a quick and effective way to rejuvenate the surface of your skin and lessen the effects of aging and the environment, Mariposa Medical Spa has a great option for you to consider: Laser Genesis skin therapy.
Laser Genesis is a skin resurfacing procedure that is convenient, non-surgical, and can produce excellent results (with repeated treatments). This kind of laser treatment is sometimes called a “lunchtime treatment” because of how quickly and easily it can be done right in the comfort of one of our two Oklahoma medical spas – Edmond and Oklahoma City.
Genesis Laser is most often used for common skin concerns that are caused by age, the environment and certain medical conditions. While it cannot fix everything — such as deep wrinkles — it can help correct redness, rough or uneven skin texture, fine lines and wrinkles, and redness that is caused by rosacea. In addition, the use of this kind of laser has been scientifically-proven to increase collagen production, a natural protein found in our skin that helps maintain a firm, full and youthful appearance. More collagen production means younger-looking skin for you, and Laser Genesis can help make that happen.
So how does the actual procedure work? It utilizes the power of light pulses in a non-ablative way — that means this type of laser does not cut the skin or remove the top layer of skin cells. The light pulses penetrate the surface of the skin so that the energy generated can be absorbed by the deeper tissues and get straight to work on the problems you want corrected. This kind of laser is sometimes referred to as a YAG laser, because of the crystal components that concentrate the light pulses: yttrium, aluminum, and garnet.
Laser Genesis treatment is simple and virtually painless. Most patients don’t even require a topical anesthetic. The laser never actually touches your skin. It is waved just above the surface so that the light pulses can penetrate. The feeling is similar to having tiny, warm water droplets fall upon your skin — that’s the light pulses. As the light and energy heats your skin, new collagen growth is stimulated. That new collagen is what will help reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles while correcting redness, rough texture, and even large pores.
Subtle changes to your skin may be noticeable after your first treatment, but full results will require more than one visit. The average is four to six treatments; your skin may respond to fewer or may require more. Our professional and highly-trained staff will talk to you about your skin and help determine how many treatments you may need. It’s all about your individual skin and the issues you are trying to treat.
