Skin Laser at Coastal Dermatology in Mystic, CT to reduce facial redness
The Laser Genesis is a type of non-ablative laser. That is, it selectively acts on the blood vessels and collagen in the dermis of the skin, and leaves the epidermis untouched. Therefore, patients heal with no downtime while the energy is focused on the blood vessels to reduce diffuse facial redness.
Important facts to know about the type of skin laser rejuvenation:
- There is no down time
- There is no wound healing afterwards; you can return to your normal activities
- The treatment feels mildly warm; no anesthesia is needed
- A series of treatments is needed; usually six
- The treatments are spaced about four weeks apart
Often, we recommend doing a microdermabrasion prior to the Laser Genesis. Doing the microdermabrsion right before the laser treatment allows for better light penetration through the epidermis and into the dermis/blood vessels which are the target tissue.
