At Azul Medspa there are several laser options offered. However, the laser used for active acne and acne scars is the Genesis Laser by Cutera®.
Laser Genesis delivers micro-pulses of laser energy to your skin, causing changes in the skin. The main mechanism involves heat which warms the dermis (deeper layer of the skin) without damaging the epidermis (the top layer of the skin that protects you from all the harmful pollutants in the environment). Because the top layer is spared, the patient doesn't suffer from the extended downtime many more aggressive lasers cause.*
The procedure helps activate collagen and improves the appearance of facial redness and brown spots. This treatment works on active acne by decreasing oil production and pore size and causes a significant improvement in acne scarring.
You can expect to see consistent results after each treatment.* Treatments can be performed in a relaxed, comfortable manner without the use of topical anesthetics or gel.
Patients often describe the treatment as relaxing and therapeutic.* You will experience a gentle warming of your skin's surface during the procedure. You can immediately return to normal activities, utilizing sunscreen if participating in outdoor activities.* You will not need gel, anesthetic cream or ice prior to treatment.
We usually recommend a course of four to five treatments to see how Laser Genesis can help restore the skin's youthful glow and appearance. The individual treatment results are subtle, but the overall effect of multiple treatments can be quite dramatic.*
