Laser Treatments for Skin Resurfacing and Rejuvenation
At Houston Dermatology Associates, we know how embarrassing imperfections on the skin can be. Whether it’s pigmented lesions, facial and leg veins, scars, or just poor skin texture and tone, there are options available to help. In many instances, patients might be proper candidates for procedures such as laser skin resurfacing. Also known as laser skin rejuvenation, this treatment uses laser light energy to improve the skin’s appearance and health. Our team utilizes the Cutera Laser Genesis system to help patients to look and feel their best!
What can I treat with Laser Genesis laser skin treatments?
Laser treatments with the Cutera Laser Genesis system can improve the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and even enlarged pores, as well as reduce redness and scarring. This non-invasive procedure utilizes a gentle laser to stimulate collagen production, providing a smoother and more even skin tone. This treatment can give the skin a healthy, youthful glow without the need for surgery or downtime.

What can I expect from my laser skin treatment?
First, we welcome patients to schedule an initial consultation appointment and evaluation. During this visit, patients will be examined by our team of professionals to determine the problems the patient wants to resolve. Then, we decide on the best course of treatment and provide a custom-tailored treatment plan. Once it has been determined that laser treatment is best, an appointment is scheduled for the treatment session. The skin is anesthetized with a topical numbing cream, and the laser is then used to target specific problem areas on the skin. Each treatment session typically lasts for about 30 minutes, with little discomfort during the procedure.
What can I expect after my laser skin treatment?
Immediately following a laser skin treatment session, patients may experience some redness or swelling in the treated areas, but this should subside within a day or two. It is advised that patients avoid direct sun exposure and use sunscreen for at least one week after treatment to protect the skin. Results from the treatment will continue to improve in the weeks and months following as collagen production is stimulated and new skin cells are generated. Patients may require multiple sessions for optimal results.
