The Lunch Break Laser Great to Stimulate Collagen Regrowth
It’s not a piece of news that we are always looking for new ways to improve our skin’s look when it comes to evening out the complexion, reducing pore size, and the list goes on… But what really can be done with a laser? And how do we get a complexion as impossibly poreless as Sydney beauty entrepreneur Jacqueline Brennan?
I put my face on the line to find out more about celebrity treatment — Laser Genesis — at Medispa Skin Clinic new space in Mosman — because if it’s good enough for Sydney’s elite, surely it’s good for me too —
What is Laser Genesis?
Laser Genesis is a non-invasive laser treatment that uses a laser to gently heat the skin (which accelerates collagen regrowth) Designed to treat fine lines, acne scars, large pores and uneven skin tone.
How does Laser Genesis Work?
Laser genesis is a lunch break procedure that’s typically done in around 60 minutes. The treatment is done by a qualified aesthetician and is almost painless. You will feel the heat on your face (Like you are under the sun at 12:00 pm in Bondi Beach during summer).
The laser heads the dermis directly under the skin, which means your skin will start to stimulate collagen production so that you will notice smooth and plump skin after a few days of the treatment.
What to Expect After Laser Genesis?
Laser genesis is considered a low-risk treatment, so the recovery after this type of laser is really minimal; that’s why it is a great treatment you can do during your lunch break.
The most common side effects are redness right after the treatment that will typically clear on its own within a few hours. The best results of this treatment will appear within 3 to 4 weeks as the new collagen and skin cells created by the heat of the laser rise to the surface. To get better results is recommended to do four to six sessions, depending on your skin needs.
The Review – Laser Genesis review
As soon as I arrived at the new Jacqueline Brennan’s new skin clinic, I noticed the calming yet luxe and elegant interiors in a neutral palette, encouraging me to relax and switch off to enjoy the full experience. Before I started the laser genesis, the amazing aesthetician’s asked me about my skin concerns. She kindly explained all the treatment in details, evaluated my skin and started by double cleansing my face. Then, she applied a gentle peeling that targets my pigmentation along with a steam session to open up my pores. This felt really wonderful.
Laser time! We started putting my goggles on, and it was time to start with the actual tool — which is pretty small and quiet even though the machine can be a little bit intimidating — She started on my cheeks, jawline, nose, forehead…The experience wasn’t as painful as I thought it would be. You can definitely feel the heat on your face, but it’s not unbearable.
I like comparing it with the feeling of the burn on the face when you go to the beach without a hat on a summer day on any shore in Australia.
When the laser treatment is done, my skin was quite red, but this disappears by the end of the day. My face was feeling a bit tight and sensible, so I recommend going very gentle with your skincare — no active acids, retinol, etc… — Wait until the skin comes back to normal to go full-on again.
The day after, my skin looked really flawless. I noticed a natural glow that I didn’t have before; my pores looked much smaller — this is glorious — and I can not recommend it enough if you are looking for a quick fix that actually works.
The downside? The $370 price tag per session.
