Layering is the key to anti-ageing


THIS amazing new anti aging treatment is exclusive to Genesis Skincare & Laser Clinic. It consists of three individual treatments which are layered to give maximum results to the skin.

Firstly the skin is deep cleansed using a glycolic peel, then Skin Tightening is performed which heatens and tightens collagen and elastin fibers, this is followed by Laser Skin Rejuvenation to tighten pores, produce collagen, reduce redness and smooth skin texture.

The Glycolic Peel
The glycolic peel is suitable for all skin types, it exfoliates the skin stimulating skin cell renewal, which in turn stimulates collagen production, keeping a fresher younger looking skin. By keeping the skin exfoliated, this prevents the build up of dead skin cells that block & clog the pores causing blackheads & breakouts therefore glycolic is good for oily congested skins for prevention purposes and of course to minimise fine lines by eliminating the dead skin cells and producing collagen.
Our skin sheds millions of skin cells a day, but as we get older this natural exfoliation slows down, so instead of these cells sloughing /falling off our skin, they build up & leave skin dull looking. The outer most layer our skin comprises of flattened dead skin cells which is 15 layers thick when we’re born, but as we age, this layer can become up to 60 layers thick & in much older sun damaged skin up to 90 layers thick, which accentuates wrinkles, blocks pores causing blackheads & congestion. Excessive dead skin cells absorbs excess product (i.e. moisturiser), therefore can waste an expensive moisturiser so by using glycolic which allows shedding of these excess skin cells allows greater penetration of products and less waste so is economical. Glycolic helps retain moisture in the skin preventing dehydration although it’s not a moisturiser.
Acne breakouts can be greatly reduced by the deep pore cleansing action of the peels. Basic steam & extraction facials cannot clean out pores as well as glycolic can, because the glycolic solution can soak into the pores & dissolve the congestion there, removing even the tiniest of blackheads.
Lines & wrinkles can be reduced due to the stimulation of collagen production. Brown Pigmentation marks on the skin can be reduced, due to skin cell renewal.


Skin Tightening
The revolutionary laser skin tightening technology offered at Genesis Skincare & Laser Clinic is the treatment for individuals who want firmer and tighter skin without visible post treatment scarring or marks. The technology can be used safely on all parts of the face and neck, showing significant improvement in fines lines and wrinkles and firming of the skin.
Laser skin tightening is ideally suitable for people with minimal to medium sagging, and is safe on all skin tones. Whilst other technologies have been developed to stimulate collagen production, the ND YAG is the most efficient, pleasant and cost effective.

The technology employs light energy to effectively remodel the body’s collagen and regenerate damaged skin cells. This can not only dramatically enhance skin texture and reduce fine lines but reverse signs of facial aging for an overall firmer, youthful appearance. As we age, skin noticeably becomes thinner as the underlying fat which was copiously present at birth dissipates. The skin’s collagen structure, known as the connective tissue, is slowly lost and results in saggy skin. New fine lines and wrinkles appear daily on the face, becoming more visible with age. While this process begins in our twenties, it can also be accelerated by years of sun damage, UV radiation and chemicals, stress, low nutrition, smoking, alcohol and drug consumption. Around the late 30s or early 40s, aging is more noticeable as the skin’s creases are more pronounced and creams, balms and anti ageing products no longer do the trick.

For individuals suffering with wrinkles, fine lines, saggy skin or aging appearance, the skin tightening treatment is for you. The ND YAG laser technology stimulates collagen production by heating the skin, resulting in decreased fine lines, firmer skin, decreased sagging, tighter pores and improved skin quality. The ND YAG laser, at a 1064-nm deposits heat into the dermis and activates the fibroblast cells to produce collagen and contract the skin. By penetrating the deeper layers, collagen fibres are tightened while leaving the skin’s upper layers intact.  Most clients see skin improvements after just one treatment and undergo several sessions within a few months to have significant and long lasting results.
The skin tightening treatment can take between 20 -30 minutes, depending on the surface area being targeted. During the treatment, a brief warm sensation can be felt when optimum temperature is reached. This indicates the collagen is being tightened and stimulated in the epidermis. The therapist will control the amount of energy delivered and will pause momentarily before proceeding to the next section or continuing.  Once the area has reached effective collagen re-modelling temperature, the treatment will conclude. An aftercare sheet will be provided and post care advice by the therapist should be adhered to.

Immediately after treatment, you will notice redness and/or swelling that will subside within a few hours. The production of dermal collagen results in visibly looking taut skin improvements of up to 80% and will also continue four to six months post treatment due to continued collagen production. Depending on the skin’s condition, most patients will need between 4 to 6 treatments and maintenance treatments thereafter.

Laser Genesis
This Laser Skin Rejuvenation treatment has been clinically proven to produce collagen so if you are bothered by facial blemishes, scarring, uneven skin tone or texture and large pores? Then our Laser Genesis Skin Rejuvenation is the perfect treatment for you. Our laser skin rejuvenation treatment is a non-surgical procedure that promotes healthy looking skin, including the reduction of redness, reduced pore size and improved skin tone and texture. The procedure creates a gentle warming of the skin while effectively and safely reversing the signs of aging by producing collagen and diminishing imperfections with no downtime. Make up can be applied afterwards and the skin returns to normal temperature in a few hours.
Our Laser Genesis Skin Rejuvenation procedure uses non-invasive laser technology to discretely and successfully treat fine lines, wrinkles, large pores, uneven skin texture, diffuse redness, and scars. You can expect to see subtle yet consistent results after each treatment, without unwanted side effects such as bruising or excessive irritation. Laser Genesis Skin Rejuvenation treatments are performed in a relaxed, comfortable manner without the use of topical anesthetics or gel. The collagen production treatment is excellent for treating crow’s feet and fine lines under the eyes. If you are not ready for Botox then this is the solution for you. It treats the lines around the mouth caused by smoking; the treatment plumps the lips minimizing the fine lines. The forehead and cheek areas can be treated separately reducing any redness and tightens pores as the laser breaks down old collagen stimulating the production of new collagen.

These treatments are available as individual treatments or if you really want to give your skin the 3D effect then layering these three advanced clinical treatments gives your skin the most anti aging experience ever.
