What is non-ablative laser rejuvenation or Laser Genesis ( LPG)?
Non-ablative laser skin rejuvenation is a laser technology introduced to treat wrinkles, scars and pigmentation. This system is used to promote the synthesis of new collagen in the dermis without ablating or removing the overlying epidermis, thus, sparing patients a prolonged downtime/healing period. This also minimizes the potential complications such as infection, scarring and post inflammatory pigmentation. The improvement is more gradual and subtle as compared to the ablative lasers.
What is LPG used for?
LPG is used for mild to moderate wrinkles, scars, pigmentation, open pores, stretch marks, keloids, acne/acne scars, acne rosacea, telangiectasias (dilated capillaries),brown spots etc.Patients often describe the treatment as relaxing and therapeutic. It is not effective for deep wrinkles or movement related wrinkles such as frown lines and crows feet (Fillers/ Boulinum Toxin A, are used for these)
What areas can be treated?
Laser Genesis Skin Therapy patients report excellent results over their entire faces and necks. Additionally, this therapy can diminish recent scars and stretch marks on other parts of the body.
What is diffuse redness?
Diffuse redness is general appearance of facial redness, such as rosy cheeks. This condition is caused by dilated capillaries, resulting in an appearance of general redness, with well defined vessels. The most commonly affected areas are the nose, forehead and cheeks.
