Introducing Laser Genesis for fresher, younger skin

Posted on November 5, 2010 in Body Skincare, Facial Skincare, Sun Damage/Protection, The Aging Face

AsianLaser Genesis Skin Therapy has recently arrived at Afterglow. This non-invasive treatment safely and effectively treats fine wrinkles, large pores, uneven skin texture, scars and diffuse redness in both men and women. While you will see a subtle improvement after each individual treatment, the cumulative effect of multiple treatments can be quite dramatic. There are no unpleasant side effects such as bruising or excessive skin irritation.

Laser Genesis Skin Therapy treatments are performed in a relaxed and comfortable manner without the need for topical anaesthetics or gel. Clients who have received the treatment report excellent results over the entire face and  neck. (The treatment can also be applied to scarring on other parts of the body.)

Prior to treatment, you will be asked to remove all makeup. You will feel a gentle warming of the skin’s surface as the laser handpiece is moved  half an inch above the surface of your skin. As the upper dermis is gently heated, collagen renewal is encouraged*, pores are reduced in size, and redness is diminished. Over the course of four or five treatments, Laser Genesis Skin Therapy can help restore the skin’s youthful glow and appearance by smoothing out uneven texture caused by aging or sun damage. The complexion will appear more creamy as minor imperfections disappear.

Now you can have a more youthful appearance by treating the conditions typically associated with premature aging and sun damage. For more information or to set up a consultation/appointment, please call Afterglow today at 604.980.3993, or email us at info@afterglowskincare.ca

* Laser Genesis Skin Therapy has been scientifically proven to stimulate collagen growth.

The ProFractional Laser

ProFractionalWomanDo you suffer from any of the following skin conditions?

If so, you may be interested in treatment with our new ProFractional laser—the newest technology for skin resurfacing. Skin resurfacing with the ProFractional laser benefits all skin types and provides long-lasting results. ProFractional uses a laser microbeam to treat thousands of pinpoint areas of your skin. Since only a fraction of the skin is directly treated with the laser, healing time is quick and downtime is short.

How does the ProFractional laser benefit your skin? By deliberately inducing micro-channels of controlled damage, the laser “tells” the skin to repair itself by building new collagen. This new collagen smoothes out wrinkles, tautens crepiness and fills in the pits and scars associated with acne. The treatment also breaks down the pigmentation that gives rise to melasma, sunspots and freckles.
If you are looking for younger looking skin, or to improve scars, wrinkles, or sun damage in a comfortable treatment with a fast recovery, then you may be an ideal candidate for ProFractional treatment.

How many ProFractional treatments will you need?

ProFractional is a fast, comfortable procedure that normally takes 15-30 minutes depending on the condition and the size of the area treated. A numbing cream may be applied in advance to aid in comfort during the procedure. ProFractional is typically done in a series of 1-4 treatments, spaced 3-6 weeks apart, depending on your needs. Afterglow will personalize a treatment plan based on the level of improvement desired and may recommend that you combine ProFractional with a MicroLaser Peel or other effective aesthetic procedures to further enhance your treatment results.
