Skin Renewal Tip

At Skin Renewal, with combination treatments every 2-4 weeks, in 3-6 months we can take almost any skin to the next level: luminous, smooth and tight. With combined treatments which include Laser Genesis, the prospects of "the perfect skin" are now possible but this usually comes at a price. At Skin Renewal we have recognized this problem and have come up with a customized solution to make it more affordable by combining Laser Genesis in an affordable package over a period of time.

As best results are seen after 6-8 treatments, every client is provided with a fully customized yearlong solution, dependent on the patient's age, relevant skin problem, budget and expectations. The effects of each treatment is accumulative meaning that the results of each previous treatment is improved with each additional treatment and the best results come down the line when new collagen that is stimulated remodels and a further tightening effect is noticed.

Laser Genesis Rejuvenation treatments are available in Johannesburg and Pretoria at the Morningside, Parkhurst, Bedfordview, Fourways, Illovo, Irene, and Brooklyn as well as in the Western Cape at Cape Quarter, Claremont, Constantia, Stellenbosch and Willowbridge branches and KwaZulu Natal in Hillcrest.

Laser Genesis™ skin therapy is an innovative, technologically and and advanced way to promote vibrant and healthy looking skin in men and women of all skin types. The Laser Genesis™ procedure has been scientifically proven to produce new collagen.

The Laser Genesis™ procedure utilizes non-invasive laser technology to safely, discretely and effectively improve those conditions that are typically associated with the premature signs of ageing and sun damage, such as excessive redness, large pores, uneven texture, sallow complexion, acne scars and wrinkles with no pain or downtime.

In 2005, 2006 and 2007, in the USA, the Aesthetic Trends and Technologies Choice Awards™, nominated the Cutera Nd: YAG for the non ablative laser for collagen remodeling.

  • Our innovative new treatment settings for the Laser Genesis™ procedure has dramatically improved our results for more difficult to treat skin problems such as deeper wrinkles, acne and superficial scarring.
  • Laser Genesis™ treatments can also be used to plump up the lips with no pain or downtime, and can also be focused on small, specific problem areas that need rejuvenation, such as the nose, the mouth, the eyes and the hands.
  • Laser Genesis™ also improves the appearance of stretch marks especially if combined with Carboxytherapy and/or Skin Needling or Dermapen.
  • For redness and Rosacea, the Laser Genesis™ procedure shrinks the tiny red veins causing the diffuse redness. If combined with a Limelight procedure, a superior result can be expected. Both these treatments improve Rosacea but do not cure it as Rosacea is a chronic condition that needs lifetime management.
  • For Epidermal melasma, Laser Genesis™ facilitates the breakup of the superficial epidermal pigmentation and helps prevent melasma recurring post treatment. In cases where melasma is both epidermal and dermal, other treatment modalities need to be included to affect a better result.

With Laser Genesis you can expect to see subtle yet consistent results after each treatment, without unwanted side effects such as swelling, redness or excessive skin irritation as one sees with more aggressive laser treatments such as the newer fractionated treatments. Treatments can be performed in a relaxed, comfortable manner without the use of topical anaesthetics or gel. 6-8 treatments are needed for most of the treatments mentioned above. In severe cases, additional treatments may be necessary.

Laser Genesis™ heats up the papillary dermis and stimulates collagen production.The laser light is also used to target superficial pigmentation as the pigment acts as a target which draws the laser light, which is converted to heat in the skin tissue, destroying the pigment within the skin cells. In addition, Laser Genesis shrinks the micro blood vessels of the papillary dermis which reduces and improves diffuse redness. For redness the treatment results are often subtle. On average, you may require four to six treatments in order to achieve optimal results, but in severe cases, more treatments may be required. It is also essential to combine these treatment with the appropriate maintenance products and good sun protection.

Laser Genesis combined with a Limelight procedure is Skin Renewal's best treatment option for redness and Rosacea. The redness and flushing improve dramatically but these treatments are not a "cure" for Rosacea which is a chronic condition that needs lifelong management. Every patient's condition and needs vary and thus between 6 and 8 treatment sessions are needed for optimal results.

For more information about your expected results or the number of treatments necessary, please consult the aesthetic doctor at your nearest Skin Renewal Branch, where your attending Doctor will be able to provide you with some insight.

After doing literally thousands of procedures, safe innovative protocols and treatment settings have been introduced for our Laser Genesis procedures. These new settings are resulting in dramatically improved results for deeper wrinkles, acne scars and superficial scarring in patients of all skin colours and all with no down time. These new protocols have now been introduced into all our packages including the 3 D Skin Rejuvenation™.

For most conditions 6 to 8 no downtime treatment sessions are necessary for the best results.

Over the course of six to eight treatments, Laser Genesis™ can help restore the skin's youthful glow and appearance by smoothing out uneven texture caused by ageing, sun damage or acne scars.

You will see a more even, healthy complexion as large pores are reduced in size, and minor imperfections are diminished.

The skin is also brighter and the sallowness which comes with ageing is improved on.

The individual treatment results are subtle, but the overall effect of multiple treatments can be quite dramatic especially if Laser Genesis™ is combined with other procedures.

The skin's elasticity and collagen content improve over time.

Acne scars, previously difficult to treat in skin of colour, improves after a series of 6 to 8 treatment sessions of Laser Genesis.

As one ages, the skin's elasticity declines dramatically, wrinkles become evident and our skin takes on a sallow complexion. One of the earliest signs of facial ageing is the development of fine lines and wrinkles. Previously there were no non ablative alternatives to laser resurfacing. The choices were fairly black and white; ablative resurfacing such as CO2 or wrinkles!

Now with the advent of non ablative laser techniques such as Laser Genesis™ and skin rejuvenation procedures such as 3D Skin Rejuvenation, virtually any patient in their thirties or above can be a candidate for a little rejuvenation and the younger the patient the better the result, as the skin has a better ability to rejuvenate. After a series of 6 to 8 treatments, ten out of ten patients will be putting collagen " in the skin bank" for the future. Perhaps even more promising is the idea that treating skin with lasers earlier on in the ageing process-at around age 30+ may actually slow or prevent the skin from breaking down and appearing wrinkled and saggy later on in life.

At Skin Renewal thousands of Laser Genesis™ procedures have been performed without any side effects. After the procedure there may be slight redness that disappears within a few minutes of treatment.

At Skin Renewal Laser Genesis™ is part of our signature treatment; Skin Renewal's 3D Rejuvenation™. In addition, Botox and Fillers (The Liquid Facelift) are commonly performed after a 3D Skin Rejuvenation™ procedure. This combination is one of the most widely used and most effective methods of achieving a significant aesthetic improvement of wrinkles within 3 to 6 months when the effects of laser rejuvenation become evident. At Skin Renewal we also include Carboxytherapy and/or Skin Needling of the face and neck to further improve wrinkles and sagging. The Acne 2 in 1 from Mannalabs is recommended for Acne prone patients to assist in treating acne from the inside.

Yes, Laser Genesis™ safely treats all skin types without significant pain or down-time. At Skin Renewal Laser Genesis™ has been safely used to treat acne scars and pores in many of our darker type 5 and 6 skins with no side effects.

Review -Great results after many treatments
Reviewed on 24 July 2015 by S.K From Brooklyn*

I've been receiving keloid treatment for almost 2 years with brilliant results but the reason for constant return has been the phenomenal reception and treatment by the therapists, staff and treating doctors. Whilst the journey has been difficult, it's been under the warmest conditions of care and kindness. Thank you to the ladies at Skin Renewal, our relationship will continue long after the keloids are gone!

Such a Fantastic experience-from the first consultation to all the treatments. Everything is explained in detail, you are never persuaded to do/buy anything that is not in your best interest, and so lovely feeling that you are in good hands with people who know what they are doing and who will help you reach your goals. Such a worthwhile investment, money better spent than on over-the-counter products. I just wish i had started earlier!

The overall service is refreshingly professional and yet caring and it was a deciding factor to me that one's treatments are tailored by a medical Doctor. Tammy, my therapist, is always prepared and knowledgeable and there is no way of forgetting about your appointment since the salon reminds one a day before via SMS.

Perhaps most pleasing of all is that my skin has significantly improved due to the careful treatments.
