How does Cutera Laser Genesis work?

At our Rancho Cucamonga med spa, our experienced aesthetic specialists will evaluate your skin and select one (or both) of Cutera Laser Genesis’s two non-ablative lasers to meet your needs:

  • The 532nm laser targets blood vessels closer to the skin and is recommended for treating facial veins, spider veins, and discoloration.
  • The 1064nm Nd: YAG laser targets deep blood vessels and darker pigmentation and is recommended for treating scars, improving skin tone and texture, and boosting collagen production.

We customize the laser used and the treatment settings to target the depth and color of your skin concern(s), and many patients benefit from a combination of the two lasers for optimal results. Once settings have been customized, your provider will move the handpiece over your skin, delivering pulses of laser energy to the treatment area.

Cutera Laser Genesis targets hemoglobin and/or melanin to effectively treat skin imperfections without causing thermal damage to the surrounding tissue.

What are the benefits of Cutera Laser Genesis laser skin resurfacing?

Cutera’s lasers are incredibly precise and clinically proven to safely and effectively treat most common skin concerns. Patients enjoy quick treatment times with Cutera Laser Genesis—most skin concerns can be addressed in 10-15 minutes. Unlike other non-surgical skin rejuvenating treatments, which may require a number of treatments to achieve visible results, it’s typical for most patients to see improvement with a single Cutera Laser Genesis treatment.

How many Cutera Laser Genesis treatments do I need?

Many patients in Rancho Cucamonga require just 1-2 Cutera Laser Genesis treatments to achieve complete laser skin rejuvenation. It is common to see significant improvements 2-6 weeks following treatment, however complete results may take a few months. Depending on your individual goals and skin concerns, up to 3 treatments may be necessary to achieve the results you are looking for. Our medspa team will be able to advise you further during your consultation.

Is Cutera Laser Genesis laser treatment painful?

During Cutera Laser Genesis treatment, patients feel mild heat pulses, like a soft rubber band snap, as laser energy is delivered below the skin’s surface. We can apply a topical numbing cream if you prefer, though it’s generally not needed. Depending on your Cutera Laser Genesis treatment, a cooled treatment tip may be applied to the skin to protect the area and enhance your comfort. Most patients feel Cutera Laser Genesis treatment is easily tolerated.

Is there any downtime required after Cutera Laser Genesis laser treatment?

Typically, patients can resume their normal activities and apply makeup immediately following Cutera Laser Genesis treatment. For full face treatments, we recommend a few days of social downtime, as most patients experience mild redness and swelling that peaks 24 to 48 hours after treatment and typically resolves within several days. Treated brown spots will darken and slough off 3-5 days after treatment, so many patients prefer to take some social downtime during this process or simply conceal it with makeup.
