Laser Genesis®in Los Altos, CA
Collagen is responsible for the elasticity and supple appearance of youthful skin, but as we age, collagen production gradually declines, giving way to wrinkles, fine lines, and skin laxity. At Mittelman Plastic Surgery in Los Altos, board-certified facial plastic surgeon Harry Mittelman, MD, uses state-of-the-art skin therapy from Laser Genesis® to bring glowing, youthful and healthy skin to the men and women of San Jose, Palo Alto and the surrounding communities of California.
What is Laser Genesis®?
At Mittelman Plastic Surgery, we understand how vital collagen production is to maintain the skin’s youthful appearance, and we use Laser Genesis® to restore collagen to aging skin. Laser Genesis® can not only restore the strength and tone of younger skin, but it can also reverse natural wear and tear and premature signs of aging that can add years to your true age. Unlike traditional laser skin therapies, Laser Genesis® is non-ablative. This gentle and painless laser therapy heats skin cells well below the skin’s surface to increase collagen production and cell turnover, flush dilated capillaries that cause facial redness and completely revitalize the skin.
Benefits of Laser Genesis®
Enlarged pores, rough skin texture, facial redness, fine lines and wrinkles and uneven skin tone are common skin imperfections that affect many people, but Laser Genesis® can treat all of the skin care concerns in a gentle, non-invasive manner. Laser Genesis® from Mittelman Plastic Surgery promotes collagen production to turn back the clock on aging at a cellular level and restore the even and vibrant glow of youth to aging skin. This innovative therapy produces subtle and gradual results with each treatment, without the excessive skin irritation and other unwanted side effects associated with traditional laser skin therapies.
What Areas Can Be Treated with Laser Genesis®?
Laser Genesis® is suitable for treating minor skin imperfections and scars on virtually any area of the body, but we typically use this therapy to revitalize the entire face and neck area.
What is Diffuse Redness?
Diffuse redness occurs when the skin on the nose, forehead and cheeks takes on a red or rosy appearance. The condition is often linked to rosacea, which is inherited and well-defined in appearance, but diffuse redness is actually the result of dilated blood vessels just below the skin’s surface. At Mittelman Plastic Surgery, Laser Genesis® is the therapy we use to treat diffuse redness and alleviate the red, irritated look associated with this condition.

Who is a Candidate for Laser Genesis®?
Laser Genesis® is such a gentle therapy that anyone who desires smoother, more youthful skin is likely an ideal candidate for the procedure. To keep the skin fresh and firm and ward off wrinkles, fine lines, uneven skin tone, rough skin texture or general cosmetic imperfections, the body needs regular collagen production. If cosmetic concerns have diminished your appearance, self-esteem and/or quality of life, you may be the perfect candidate for the collagen-boosting and anti-aging benefits that Laser Genesis® treatments from Mittelman Plastic Surgery can provide.
What is the Procedure for Laser Genesis®?
Laser Genesis® treatments from Mittelman Plastic Surgery are comfortable and non-invasive, allowing patients to reverse the unwanted signs of aging in a safe, effective and discreet manner. Some patients even describe the laser’s mild warming sensation as it moves across the skin’s surface as therapeutic and relaxing. Treatment sessions are quick and painless, and the laser is so gentle that topical numbing gels and anesthetics typically are not required during the procedure.
Preparing for Laser Genesis®
Makeup and moisturizers should be removed prior to treatment, if applicable, and patients should not use topical prescription medications, such as Retin-A, within three to five days of their scheduled treatment. Otherwise, scheduling a one-on-one consultation with Dr. Mittelman is the only other necessary step to preparing for Laser Genesis®. Depending on your desired outcome, you may need several treatments to reach your goal. Patients should prepare for a treatment plan with a series of individual treatment sessions.
Recovery from Laser Genesis®
Laser Genesis® is one of the most convenient laser skin therapies, requiring no downtime or recovery period. Due to the non-invasive nature of the procedure, patients can expect gradual, yet noticeable improvements in their skin with little to no side effects or discomfort. Unlike other laser treatments, Laser Genesis® is gentle and it does not damage or irritate the skin’s surface, so patients can apply makeup and resume their normal activities immediately after treatment.
How Long Will It Take For The Treatment Results To Be Apparent?
The treatment results are very subtle, and most patients require four to six treatments to achieve their desired look. Every patient’s condition and needs vary, but in general, the overall improvement in the skin’s tone and texture irregularities caused by scarring, aging and sun damage are quite dramatic with multiple sessions of Laser Genesis®. Dilated veins and lesions in treated areas tend to fade within two to six weeks for most patients. Subtle changes will continue to accrue with each treatment session until you achieve the final outcome you desire after several months.
How Much Does Laser Genesis® Cost in San Jose?
