Laser Genesis Q & A

What is rosacea?

Rosacea affects your skin, primarily on the face. It appears as a redness and then progresses, if untreated, to a ruddier coloration with visible blood vessels. You may develop bumps and pimples, and even your nose can grow bumpy and swollen due to excess tissue. Rosacea is chronic and can potentially affect your quality of life.

What is Laser Genesis?

Laser Genesis is a noninvasive skin rejuvenation treatment that addresses skin imperfections, namely rosacea. It uses a controlled laser energy, so it’s safe for men and women with all skin types.

During a treatment session, a staff member from Melanie L. Adams, MD, PA, applies the laser energy to the affected areas using a specialized handpiece. The energy passes safely through your skin’s outermost layer and is absorbed as heat by the deeper tissues and underlying structures.

How does Laser Genesis improve rosacea?

As the dermal tissues and collagen proteins heat up, they trigger the body to heal naturally. Blood and nutrients circulate to the treatment area, jump-starting the creation of newer, healthier tissues and stronger collagen fibers.

Over time, you achieve tighter, softer-looking skin. Redness dissipates, and exposed blood vessels heal.

What should I expect at a Laser Genesis treatment?

A treatment lasts no longer than 30 minutes. During the session, you feel a warming sensation as the wand passes about a half-inch above your skin. Afterward, you have minimal or no downtime, meaning you can go back to your daily activities right away.

When can I expect to see results?

Changes in the texture, redness, and fine lines of your skin appear within three to nine weeks. Because the laser addresses deep skin cells, it takes awhile for the improvement to become apparent on the top layers of your skin.

How many treatments are necessary?

Each patient’s skin is different, and Dr. Adams devises a treatment plan appropriate for you. Typically, six treatments spaced one to two weeks apart are enough to make noticeable changes in your rosacea. You experience greater results with each treatment, too.
