You often read about the latest treatments and lasers promising the world, but how often do you walk out of a clinic after a treatment feeling 10 years younger?
I was recently commissioned to trial Laser Genesis and document my thoughts on the overall treatment. The timing was impeccable as my skin was feeling slightly tired, so I was definitely cheering.
Laser Genesis uses high power microsecond pulses at high repetition rates to safely heat the dermis, stimulating collagen and reducing redness. The procedure utilises non-invasive laser technology to safely and effectively treat fine line wrinkles, large pores, uneven skin texture and diffuse redness and scars. Most patients will see subtle, yet consistent results after each treatment, with zero unwanted side effects such as bruising or excessive skin irritation.
I found several clinics within my area that offered Laser Genesis, so finding a location wasn’t hard. However, I am a firm believer that every one of your senses needs to be tantalised when splurging money on yourself. After all, you are investing money in yourself to feel good, so an overall experience played a big part in this for me.
One of the first clinics I came across was Lily Room, situated in a very private street in Chatswood. I proceeded to call the clinic and booked my first appointment, much to my delight.
I must say, I was slightly nervous going to my first appointment. I had a million thoughts racing through my head. Was this place going to be any good? Was the treatment going to work, or was my skin going to be worse off?
As I entered Lily Room, the first thing I was welcomed by was the inviting scent throughout the clinic and a friendly face with a beaming smile welcoming me to their clinic. The rooms were beautiful and lit to make you feel very welcomed.
Once I was in the treatment room, the specialist made me feel extremely comfortable and explained how the treatment was going to work and that I would have a course of six treatments. I was also told the laser feels like the sun tingling against your skin.
Treatment time, the eye pads were gently placed on my eyes and the treatment began. I must say, the laser definitely did feel like I was laying in the sun, and in a strange way – I found it extremely soothing and not at all painful, as previously believed.
I have always had fairly good skin, however, it most certainly has its moments. I have to admit, my main concerns have always been my pores and the few fine lines that are creeping up as I am entering my 40s.
After my first treatment, I noticed my skin to be plumper and had a natural glow to it. However, I was promised the final results would be visible after the course of 6 treatments. This however did not stop me from constantly admiring myself in the rear view mirror on my way back in to the office.
As the technician mentioned, the results were most certainly visible after the 6 treatments. My pores are dramatically reduced and the texture of my skin has never felt better, and much to be excitement, the fine lines around my eyes are virtually unnoticeable.
The treatment requires your dedication, as you will be need to frequent the clinic once a fortnight. However, if you are contemplating investing in a laser treatment, do yourself a favor and book yourself in for Laser Genesis.
It takes a lot to impress me, and I can honestly say I am extremely impressed with the treatment and am a devoted fan.
If you are in the Sydney area, do yourself a favor and see the ladies at Lily Room, you will not be disappointed.
