What is the cause?
Pore size is often attributed to genetics and can affect the type of skin we have. Pores are enlarged when dirt, oil, and/or debris becomes trapped within.
Both acne and sun damage are also culprits in causing pores to appear larger and more noticeable.
However, through appropriate laser treatment, pore tightening can be a quick, painless, and highly effective procedure.
What is Cutera Laser Genesis™?
Laser Genesis™ is a non-invasive laser technology that treats large pores, uneven texture, fine wrinkles, acne scarring, excessive redness and rosacea conditions.
The most common treated areas include, but are not limited to the face, neck, and chest.
How does it work?
Cutera Laser Genesis™ works by penetrating deep into the skin to stimulate the formation of new collagen.
This will cause your skin to plump-up, so to speak, and in turn will tighten and reduce pore size.
What can I expect?
This short procedure can take between 15-30 minutes and is relatively painless.
You’ll experience a gentle warming of the skin as pores are minimized, imperfections diminished and redness reduced.
Your skin will begin tightening after the first treatment, but a customized treatment cycle will provide optimal results.
On average, 5 treatments are recommended to achieve optimal results, although every patient’s condition and need varies.
Improvement will continue up to 6 months after your first treatment.
You will experience no downtime and can even apply make-up immediately after the procedure.
