Ruddy, red complexions or blotchy skin can mar your red carpet look, and there was little that could diminish this redness and erase broken blood vessels in time for your big event — until now.
Beauty A-listers know that the secret to a flawless complexion is not just about camouflage makeup and staying out of the sun. That's why they flock to see a pro for Cutera's Laser Genesis treatment. Laser Genesis is the same YAG laser that reduces scarring, minimizes pores and smooths fine lines and wrinkles, yet it also works to reduce redness and even skin tone with no downtime in as little as 30 minutes, about as long as it takes to sip a soy latte.
It's not just the millions of people who live with the skin condition rosacea that experience redness and flushing either. Over time, the sun's UV rays thin the skin and dilate superficial blood vessels, which is why skin tends to look redder as you age. And if you already have flushing or rosacea, this is a double whammy, resulting in more dramatic flushing and redness.
The laser's energy specifically targets blood vessels, shrinking them. The very same laser also gently heats the upper level of your skin to boost the production of collagen and elastin, the two main structural proteins that give skin its youthful appearance. The new supply of collagen and elastin smooths uneven texture and wrinkles from the inside out. The result? An immediate glow. The collagen regeneration occurs gradually under the surface, revealing fewer lines and wrinkles, tighter pores and other visible improvements within just a few weeks.
"Laser Genesis is a no-downtime treatment for rejuvenation and decreasing redness," says New York City dermatologist Bradley Bloom. "It can be used on all skin types and is very comfortable. Since it is a non-invasive laser treatment, there is no downtime and makeup can be worn right away. We use Laser Genesis all the time and our patients love it."
Sometimes referred to as a "lunchtime laser facial," Laser Genesis is quick and painless, taking less than 30 minutes per treatment session. "I recommend a series of treatments to get the best results, and it can be used on the face, neck and chest," he says.
For these reasons, Laser Genesis is one of the most popular procedures at Dr. Bloom's practice and also at Dr. Tahl Humes' VITAHL Medical Aesthetics in Denver and Chicago. "We use it to treat almost every patient because it is so versatile and patients often find the treatment soothing and comfortable. We can address pore size, texture, fine lines, wrinkles and redness, and also use it for overall skin health to maintain the results from more aggressive treatments patients undergo."
