You may have used professional treatments to treat your wrinkles, or skin lotions and cream to improve the moisture and tone of the skin. However, these products are not always sustainable and may not address severe skin damage and deep folds. Guelph Medical Laser & Skin Centre uses Laser Genesis™ to treat various skin conditions and damage.
Laser Genesis™ typically requires a series of treatment sessions to get the best results, but it may depend on the severity of the skin condition. The heat-based laser treatment has little to no downtime, and individuals can get back to their normal activities soon after the treatment. That said, what skin conditions does this non-invasive procedure treat?
Large Skin Pores
Large pores on your skin occur due to genetics and age. Some people have skin that is oily and naturally thick, often battling the problem of enlarged pores. When the skin releases excess oil that mixes with dead cells in the pores, clogging occurs that causes them to enlarge.
As the oil that’s trapped by dead skin cells oxidizes, it forms blackheads. Again, as people get older, the effects of sun damage along with less skin elasticity make the pores larger. Laser Genesis™ releases heat that penetrates deep into the skin, stimulating the production of collagen, which helps shrink the pores and make even the skin tone.
The presence of acne scars on your skin is because of lesion inflammation such as pustules, papules, or cysts. When the hair follicles or skin pores clog with too much oil, bacteria, and dead skin cells, the blemishes may inflame. This leads to swelling of the pores and breaking in the follicle wall.
A rupture may occur on the surface of the skin, but because the lesion is minor, it heals quickly. If serious lesions form because a deep break is occurring in the follicle wall, the material that has an infection may spill out to reach the dermis, something that destroys the healthy skin tissue. Laser Genesis™ helps remove the scarring and restore the tone and texture of your skin.
Age, venous deficiency, rosacea, and free radicals can contribute to red facial skin. You can reduce the appearance of conditions like rosacea by using Laser Genesis™ treatment.
Wrinkles and Skin Folds
If you have wrinkles and furrows on your skin because of premature aging, sun exposure, smoking, or other causes, you could do away with them using this laser treatment.
