Laser Genesis

The Laser Genesis procedure utilizes non-invasive laser technology to safely, discretely and effectively treat fine-line wrinkles, diffuse and excessive redness and help manage large pores, uneven skin texture, and scars. You can expect to see subtle yet consistent results after each treatment, without unwanted side effects such as bruising or excessive skin irritation after the Laser Genesis procedure. Laser Genesis Treatments can be performed in a relaxed, comfortable manner without the use of topical anesthetics or gel.

How does Laser Genesis work?

By gently heating the upper dermis well below your skin's surface, Laser Genesis stimulates collagen regrowth. Additional heat is generated in dilated capillaries to reduce redness.

Skin Care Regime for Smoothing Rough Skin Texture

Choosing the right skincare products to improve skin texture and maintain a youthful, radiant look is best done during a consultation with Dr. Ebrahim. The roughness could be caused by underlying conditions which require treatment other than creams, lotions or ointments.

Moreover, one must protect their skin from the harmful effects of sun exposure. Choose a broad spectrum sunscreen with a sun protection factor (SPF) greater than 15 and pay attention to how often it needs to be re-applied if you are exposed to the sun for long periods of time. Be diligent about covering exposed areas. Rehydrate from the inside out - drink plenty of water.

Facial lines and wrinkles appear as one ages, causing less smooth skin texture. Change of climate/season and excessive sun exposure can contribute to rough skin texture. Other common causes of roughness are acne, eczema, and rosacea.
