Laser Genesis works by heating the upper dermis of your skin. In this way, it uses heat to penetrate deep beneath the surface and stimulate the production of collagen – which is key to improving your skin’s tone, texture and appearance.

Correct uneven skin tone

Target facial redness and discoloration
Laser Genesis is incredible because it can be safely used to rejuvenate all skin types and tones. As such, most of our Chicago patients can be considered candidates. Depending on your needs, the procedure can be performed on its own, or as a complement to plastic surgery.
Your Laser Genesis procedure will be done in the comfort of our Chicago office. When you arrive, you will lie down on a treatment table as one of our aestheticians thoroughly cleanses your face and performs a steam session to open up your pores. You will then be given special goggles to protect your eyes from the bright light of the laser.
From there, we will move the laser over your skin. You will feel a warm sensation that is not painful – though you may experience some sensitivity in certain areas depending on your tolerance level.
You will be free to return to work and your normal daily routine immediately without any restrictions. You may experience some redness in the treatment area, though it will be mild and shouldn’t interfere with your daily routine.
Prior to beginning your procedure, we will examine your skin to create a customized treatment plan. However, most of our patients require multiple sessions over a period of several months for optimal results.
