Laser Genesis skin rejuvenation at Laser Skin and Wellness Center in Des Plaines, IL is a revolutionary way to treat fine lines, wrinkles, large pores, uneven texture, redness and scars. This safe, gentle laser stimulates collagen production to smooth and renew your skin for a healthy, youthful glow.
Our Laser Genesis procedure uses noninvasive laser energy to activate your skin’s natural renewal processes. The laser light targets water in your skin cells, heating the cells and stimulating increased collagen production.
Collagen plumps up your skin, reducing wrinkles and restoring elasticity and tone. At the same time, the treatment improves circulation and metabolism for better oxygenation and nutrient delivery to your skin cells.
During the Laser Genesis treatment, AKA the “red carpet facial,” a small handheld device with a laser tip will be gently glided across your skin surface. As the laser tip comes into contact with your skin, pulses of laser energy penetrate into the dermis or middle layer of skin. This laser energy is selectively absorbed by water molecules within skin cells, causing gentle heating. The controlled heating triggers natural biologic processes and stimulates fibroblasts to produce more collagen and elastin.
Over the next weeks and months as new collagen forms, your skin becomes firmer, pores appear tighter, fine lines and wrinkles are smoothed out, redness and minor scars lighten, and tone and texture become more even. Most patients start to notice results after one to two sessions. Treatments can be spaced two to four weeks apart for optimal results.
Collagen is vital for healthy, youthful looking skin. By stimulating your body’s natural collagen production, Laser Genesis rejuvenates skin from the inside out. Patients reap numerous benefits from the increased collagen, including:
In addition to the collagen stimulation, the laser energy also increases fibroblast activity and blood flow to your treatment areas. Fibroblasts help produce elastin and other compounds that keep skin youthful looking. Improved circulation carries away waste products and brings in fresh nutrients to nourish your skin cells.
Laser Genesis skin rejuvenation can improve skin texture for patients of all skin types. Ideal candidates are people concerned with:
Laser Genesis is safe for all ethnicities and skin tones. There are few contraindications other than avoiding treatment directly on any active infections or open wounds.

During the consultation, our Skin Rejuvenation Specialist will assess your skin issues and design a customized Laser Genesis treatment plan to target your specific problem areas most effectively.
Laser Genesis stands apart from many other laser skin rejuvenation treatments because it stimulates natural collagen regrowth for longer lasting, progressive results over a series of sessions. It does not ablate or remove layers of skin, which can cause inflammation and lengthy healing.
The treatment is extremely safe and comfortable even on delicate areas around the eyes and mouth. It requires no anesthetic or numbing creams. It’s gentle enough to protect surrounding skin, so there are no issues with hyperpigmentation or hypopigmentation afterward.
Patients love that there is no preparation needed for Laser Genesis treatments and no downtime afterward. You can return to regular activities immediately with only some minor redness initially.
Over a series of sessions spaced several weeks apart, Laser Genesis transforms lackluster skin by working from the inside out to restore youthful collagen levels. Your skin becomes more supple, smoother and glows with a healthy radiance.
With a series of three to six initial treatments, results from Laser Genesis can last one to three years. Many patients choose maintenance sessions annually to sustain their youthful glow.
Most patients describe the Laser Genesis treatment as relaxing and comfortable. It feels like a warm massage. No anesthetic or numbing cream is required.
Most people achieve their aesthetic goals within four to six sessions. However, the number of treatments needed depends on your individual skin condition and goals. Maintaining results with annual touchup sessions is recommended.
Many patients notice some minor improvements even after the first or second session. However, the full effects emerge gradually over the course of the full treatment series as new collagen develops. Optimal results are typically seen within two to three months.
