What is the CUTERA® Laser Genesis Treatment?
The CUTERA® Laser Genesis Treatment is a non-ablative laser treatment for acne scars and any redness left behind after old acne clears. With its unique 1064nm short-pulsed laser, CUTERA® Laser Genesis won’t break the barrier of your skin while drastically decreasing the size of any enlarged pore or acne scars.
By promoting collagen production at the cellular level, CUTERA® Laser Genesis helps you soften the most common forms of acne scars.
How Does the CUTERA® Laser Genesis Work?
CUTERA® Laser Genesis improves acne scarring in two ways. First, the laser collapses superficial blood vessels on your skin to minimize the redness surrounding your old acne lesions. Next, it promotes the production of healthy collagen at the cellular level to diminish acne scars and improve texture. CUTERA® Laser Genesis works because it penetrates deep into your skin’s cellular layer to counter your overactive sebaceous glands–where most acne problems arise.
