Laser Genesis vs Nd YAG

+2

Laser Genesis treatments use the Nd YAG laser head on the Cutera system but the settings are different. The Laser Genesis fires much more rapidly at lower energy settings so it feels like warm water droplets. The Laser Genesis head doesn't touch the skin during the treatment, but is lightly waved over the treated area. The Nd YAG head puts all the force into one quick shot of energy and targets small capillaries and vascular lesions. It puts all the force into one direct shot and the treatment head is directly against the skin. The treatment head is the same, but the application and pulse strength of the energy are much different.
