Is There Really a Lunchtime Laser?

The term "lunchtime laser" has entered the popular lexicon recently.  The name implies that there is a quick and easy laser treatment that gives a person enough time to go from their place of work when their lunch break begins, drive to an office like Maine Laser Skin Care, undergo a quick and easy laser treatment on their skin, then drive back to work before their lunch break ends and resume their workday.

For some people, the lunchtime laser sounds too good to be true.  Sure, the concept sounds great, not to mention convenient, but is it real?

The short answer is yes, there is a laser treatment that can be done in a 15-20 minute range of time, is virtually pain free, has zero downtime, and is most importantly completely safe.  Our lunchtime laser is called Laser Genesis, which is a non-ablative skin resurfacing treatment that stimulates your skin’s natural mechanisms to reverse many of the signs of aging.

This powerful and yet gentle laser reaches into deeper layers of the skin to stimulate collagen production and a more vibrant, healthy-looking, and younger complexion.  If you want to rejuvenate the skin of the face, neck, and upper chest that have been damaged from years of sun exposure, Laser Genesis is the treatment for you.

Laser Genesis is gentle enough to treat sensitive or thinner skin such as around the eyes, mouth, and décolleté.  It is also powerful enough to show benefits even after the first treatment.

To get the maximum benefit of this fast-acting laser, we recommend a series of 3 to 4 treatments.  Most patients see progressive improvements over several weeks after each treatment.

Laser Genesis is also great for reducing pore size and the appearance of the crêpiness of fine lines and wrinkles.  This treatment protocol can also improve the appearances of scars, uneven pigmentation. and broken capillaries.

Over the course of the treatment, you will feel a gentle warming of the skin as the laser beams penetrate to areas below the surface.  This results in a slight redness on the skin which usually resolves quickly.  No cold compresses are necessary.

Sunscreens and makeup may be applied immediately after the sessions.  Also, as implied by the "lunchtime" in the colloquial title, you can also go back to work and resume all your normal activities.
