Laser Genesis and IPL or Photofacial are different
Laser Genesis is a 1064 Nd:YAG laser that is used to stimulate the production of collagen from the deeper layers of the skin to help reduce the size of pores and reduce redness due to Rosacea and dilated blood vessels. Because it is a long-wavelength laser, it can safely treat all skin types. IPL/Photofacial is Iight-based, not laser-based and targets the epidermis, or topmost layer of the skin to reduce dilated blood vessels, redness, and discoloration that may occur from sun spots, etc. It can also be used in conjuction with stimulatory chemicals such Levulan for enhanced effect in photodynamic therapy. Because this treatment targets the most superficial layer of the skin, it can not be used to safely treat some of the darker skin types. Both Laser Genesis and IPL/Photofacial require several treatments to see maximal improvment.
