How to Avoid Bumps from Laser Genesis?

Can Laser Genesis cause any bumps (like pimple) under the surface of skin? If yes, how can we avoid it?

We have never seen this occur with Genesis, and would consider it very rare.  If done over hair, perhaps there is a little inflammation of the follicle. Thank you for your question and good luck with everything.

Laser genesis IMPROVES bumps

+1

There have been no studies shown or incidences in our practice of Laser Genesis causing bumps.  If anything, it improves any current breakouts you have because the amount of heat used kills the bacteria, therefore, drying up the bump, as well as lessening the redness of it.

Laser genesis and pimples

It is unlikely that laser genesis would cause bumps under the skin. If anything, it should actually improve pores, thus reducing breakouts. Laser genesis works by stimulating collagen and inducing surface changes like decreasing redness and pore size by heat. While results aren't typically long lasting, it really should not have the opposite effect of increasing acne.
