The Geneo Facial is one of the newest skin rejuvenation procedures offered at Laser Skin & Wellness. This innovative treatment combines three different technologies into one facial to give your skin an ultimate refresh with exfoliation, oxygenation, and nourishment.

What is Geneo Facial?

Geneo Facial involves three steps to rejuvenate your skin from the inside and out:

1. OxyGeneo

OxyGeneo is a unique treatment that creates tiny bubbles of carbon dioxide on the surface of the skin. This causes your body to send more blood and oxygen to those skin cells; skin oxygenation is incredibly important because oxygen helps your skin heal more effectively, absorb skincare products better, and appear brighter and healthier.

2. TriPollar RF

Radiofrequency energy (RF) heats both the superficial and deep layers of the skin for maximum collagen and elastin production. These two proteins are the building blocks of healthy, firm skin. Without enough collagen and elastin, your skin will start to show signs of aging like sagging or loose skin. TriPollar treatment simultaneously heats fat cells, causing them to shrink, which tightens and recounters the treated area.

3. Geneo Oxypods

Geneo Oxypods are made from a unique formula of serums and ingredients that give your skin nutrition while exfoliating and oxygenating the surface. There are several Geneo Oxypod options you can choose to target your specific skin concerns. For example, the charcoal-based pods improve the texture and appearance of oily skin and Oxypods with red algae rejuvenate dull skin and reduce fine lines. Each formula is custom-made to treat all skin types and your specific skin concerns.

Geneo Facial Results

You need oxygen to live, and your skin needs to breathe too! A Geneo facial will eliminate fine lines and wrinkles, smooth and tighten the skin, brighten your complexion, and create a more youthful experience using anti-aging ingredients and technology. Exfoliation paired with collagen stimulation will remove dead skin cells from the surface of the skin while speeding up the growth of new, healthy cells below the surface. You will see immediate results with gradual improvements of vibrant, glowing skin, no longer dulled by a surface of dead skin.

Are you bothered by the appearance of acne scars, fine lines and wrinkles, age spots, or lax skin? If so, you may be able to benefit from skin resurfacing treatments. It is a non-surgical treatment to help rejuvenate the skin for a more youthful-looking complexion. There are several different treatment options when it comes to skin resurfacing, with plasma and laser treatments the two most popular. Read on to learn more about the differences between these treatments and which one is right for you.

Laser Skin Resurfacing

Laser skin resurfacing uses laser energy to carefully remove layers of the skin. Once the topmost layers of damaged skin are removed, new cells can form, resulting in smoother, tighter skin. At Laser Skin & Wellness, we offer the Fractional Laser Treatment to treat uneven skin texture, scarring, lines, and large pores.

During treatment, hundreds of micro-beams create deep micro-columns of thermal tissue damage, causing a controlled wound. This trauma to the skin is what creates natural collagen, resulting in a more youthful-looking complexion. Following treatment, the skin will be red and swollen, and some areas may be bandaged. Be sure to follow your provider’s aftercare instructions for optimal results.

Opus Plasma Resurfacing

Plasma skin resurfacing uses high-frequency unipolar radiofrequency energy to create tiny channels in the skin and jumpstart its natural collagen production through a wound-healing response. At our office, we offer the Opus Plasma treatment for skin resurfacing to address acne scars, fine lines and wrinkles, dullness and uneven texture, and pigmentation. Opus Plasma can be used on many areas of the face and neck, including sensitive areas such as around the eyes.

Because of Opus Plasma’s state-of-the-art technology and approach, patients experience drastically less downtime than other laser treatments. You can expect about one to two days of redness and swelling, but you can generally return to your regular schedule immediately after treatment.

Which Skin Resurfacing Treatment is Right for You?

Overall, the treatment option that is right for you will depend on your individual skin type, skincare goals, and lifestyle. Your first step will be to schedule a consultation appointment with one of our skilled estheticians to determine which laser treatment is right for your individual goals. We will create a personalized treatment plan to help you make your skin goals a reality.

If there’s one method that has shown some of the best skin rejuvenating results on the market, it’s fractional skin resurfacing. Traditionally, this has been achieved through laser treatments or even manual options like microneedling. The next generation in fractional skin rejuvenation is plasma, and there’s a lot to be excited about. We’re proud to be the first in South Florida to introduce the Opus Plasma™ system as our newest option for rejuvenating your skin with the gold standard for plasma technology.

What is Opus Plasma?

Opus Plasma is a revolutionary high-frequency unipolar radiofrequency technology. The first fractional plasma device on the market, it combines radiofrequency with microplasma energy to create tiny channels in the skin to jumpstart collagen production and rejuvenate the skin. It’s a similar technique to microneedling or other fractional ablative laser treatments, but it uses plasma technology for some of the best benefits available.

What Are the Benefits of Opus Plasma?

Because the Opus Plasma system uses plasma energy, it can reduce inflammation by precisely controlling contact time. This means it comes with greatly reduced downtime versus alternative treatment options. Additionally, Opus Plasma only requires a quick, 15-minute treatment session and can be performed using a topical numbing cream. This means you can easily fit it into your regular schedule along with subsequent treatment sessions to achieve your ideal results.

Who’s a Good Candidate for Opus Plasma?

One of the best parts about the Opus Plasma system is that it’s extremely versatile and can be customized to your unique skin type, tone, and concern areas. It can be used on the face as well as sensitive areas like the eyes and lips, unlike other treatments like microneedling. The Opus Plasma can also be used to improve surgical scars and stretch marks on any body part. During treatment, your technician can specifically adjust the energy level to suit your needs and ensure against unwanted inflammation and plasma contact.

What is Recovery Like?

Your recovery process will be unique to your treatment and your specific skincare goals. Clinical studies have shown that Opus Plasma required 50% less downtime than laser alternatives, meaning you can get back to your regular activities far more quickly. In fact, most patients experience only some mild to moderate redness and swelling within the first two days. You’ll see noticeable improvement after your first treatment with your results only compounding with more sessions. Most patients need two or three sessions for best results.

Laser skin resurfacing is an effective way to improve the outer layer of skin and promote smoother, healthier skin beneath. Laser treatments act as a noninvasive way to rejuvenate the skin, using targeted laser energy to heat deeper layers. Laser systems continue to advance, allowing patients several different treatments to choose from. At Laser Skin & Wellness, we offer the 1540 fractional laser system, one of the most popular in skin resurfacing technology. The 1540 laser offers the following unique benefits:

Improve a range of common skin concerns

Fractional laser resurfacing targets the outer layers of skin to remove sun damage, age spots, dead skin cells, and other surface-level imperfections. At the same time, deeper layers of skin are treated, stimulating the body’s natural collagen production. With a boost in collagen, fine lines and wrinkles are smoothed, stretch marks can be improved, acne scars are faded, and the overall skin texture and quality is enhanced. The treatment takes just 30 minutes to complete, with more improvements as the skin cells begin to regenerate.

No downtime or recovery

The effectiveness of the 1540 laser system is comparable to CO2 laser resurfacing, but without the lengthy downtime and side effects. After CO2 laser resurfacing, you have to be ready for several weeks of downtime. During the days following treatment, the skin will ooze, crust over, and eventually peel to reveal your new skin. However, for most, this means feeling unpresentable for up to a week, not being able to wear makeup, and having sensitive skin for several months. You also must avoid sun exposure for up to 6-months, which can make summer treatments nearly impossible!

Fractional laser resurfacing offers an effective alternative to the CO2 laser, for great results without the downtime and side effects. With the 1540 fractional laser, micro-beams are used to create controlled damage in the skin, while leaving small gaps of untreated skin. By leaving these gaps of healthy tissue, the damaged areas heal more quickly and allow for less downtime and fewer side effects. After treatment, you can expect some mild swelling, redness, and stinging similar to a sunburn. These should only last about 48 hours, and sun exposure should be avoided during this time, but all other activities can be resumed. Over the next several weeks, you can expect smoother skin as your collagen production continues to increase.

Risk of scarring

Along with fewer side effects and a quicker recovery, the fractional laser reduces any risk of scarring. With more aggressive CO2 lasers, there is some risk of pigment changes or scarring after treatment. This occurs due to the ablative nature of CO2 lasers and the crusting and peeling it induces. With the fractional laser, these risks are not associated with treatment. Fractional laser systems are non-ablative, leaving the top layer of healthy skin intact.
