Are you struggling to get rid of enlarged pores? There are several factors that can lead to enlarged pores, including sun damage, excess oil production, and the aging process. But, if it seems like your pores won’t minimize no matter what you do, it could be time to try Laser Genesis. Keeping your pores clean will make them appear smaller although you cannot physically shrink them.
Laser Genesis is a non-invasive, advanced cosmetic treatment that uses the Cutera Excel V laser. It’s safe, effective, and causes minimal side effects. Here, we’ll discuss how the Laser Genesis treatment can minimize pores.
In Laser Genesis, the Cutera Excel V laser handpiece is held about ½ inch away from the skin and moved back and forth. This process gently heats the treatment area, which stimulates the skin’s natural collagen production process. As lost collagen is regenerated, the skin regains strength, structure, and elasticity. This tightens enlarged pores for a smoother, more uniform complexion.
For the best results, we recommend that patients receive a series of Laser Genesis treatments. After the series, your skin will appear healthier with a more even skin tone and minimized pores. Patients generally notice the best results by returning every six months for a maintenance treatment.
Laser Genesis is a comfortable treatment that lasts for approximately 30 minutes. You can return to your regular activities immediately after treatment, but make sure to apply sunscreen as your skin will be more susceptible to sunburn. While you may notice mild redness that lasts for a few hours after treatment, most patients experience little to no side effects.
