About Laser Skin Rejuvenation
Laser skin rejuvenation at Pura Vida Body & Mind Spa is a nonsurgical cosmetic procedure that uses pulsating beams of light to exfoliate damaged surface skin one layer at a time. The treatment is great for correcting facial lines and wrinkles and for improving skin blemishes, like acne scars, pigmentation, and more. Also called a laser facial or a laser peel, laser skin rejuvenation with the Cutera enlighten PICO Genesis and/or Laser Genesis is a great facial treatment for patients desiring a softer, clearer, younger complexion. Depending on the concerns of the complexion, the PICO Genesis laser (which uses Picosecond technology) or the Cutera XEO Laser Genesis will be adjusted accordingly. There is minimal downtime needed with most laser skin rejuvenation procedures, which can be discussed during your consultation with our medical director, Dr. Neal Verma, at our Fleming Island, FL medical spa.Book Now
Laser Treatment Options
As parts of the Cutera laser system, PICO Genesis and Laser Genesis treatments are non-ablative. Non-ablative laser treatments do not remove any skin, but rather the laser creates micro-damage to the skin to prompt the body's natural healing response. Non-ablative procedures are ideal for minimizing fine lines and wrinkles on patients who are able to wait several months for strong results.

"Kara and her assistant Kelly were wonderful during my CO2 laser treatment today. They were both very professional and caring. Kara did an excellent job explaining the procedure to me to include the aftercare instructions in thorough detail, you can tell she really loves what she does and is also very knowledgeable. They both made me feel very comfortable during the entire procedure and were very caring throughout the entirety of the procedure. Definitely recommend!!!"- M.C. / Google / Nov 09, 2023
"I’ve been going to this med spa for a few years now but today I’d like to give a shout out to Brianna for a wonderful facial experience. I had my first Aerolase treatment and all throughout she checked on me to make sure I was comfortable. Once that was completed I opted for a diamond glow facial. She made it very relaxing and did not rush through it. She’s very sweet and great at what she does! I will definitely book again ;)"- L.F. / Yelp / Oct 27, 2023
There are several factors to take into consideration when deciding which laser facial treatment is right for your skin. Laser skin rejuvenation with Laser Genesis or PICO Genesis is designed for anyone who is unhappy with their general complexion. If you have sun damage, acne scars, age spots, lines and wrinkles, redness or pigmentation concerns, a laser skin rejuvenation treatment can be good to address these cosmetic flaws. In addition, laser skin rejuvenation works great for patients who have scaly patches, rough texture, or other irregularities. This treatment is not recommended if you have very dark skin or active acne.
What to expect
When undergoing a laser rejuvenation facial treatment, you may be asked to use a certain medical grade skin care products for a few weeks prior to your laser procedure. This helps prepare the skin for better results and quicker healing. Your laser technician will also recommend post-laser skin care products to maximize your results. During the procedure, you will relax in our treatment chair while our Cutera's PICO Genesis or Laser Genesis glides over the treatment area, precisely targeting the specific sections for rejuvenation. he laser works to eliminate dead and damaged skin cells, while also stimulating natural collagen production.
Following your laser treatment, a healing ointment will be applied to the skin and you can return home to recover. The skin may appear red, and there may be some irritation and swelling. This should subside within a couple of days. The recovery time associated with a laser facial can be just a couple of days to 1 week. Discuss recovery time with your laser technician so you can plan accordingly. Generally speaking your skin will flake, crust, and peel during the recovery period. It is vital to not interfere with the healing process to both avoid scarring and to protect the treated area at all times from UV exposure. Once the peeling process has been completed, your skin will feel softer while looking clearer, rejuvenated, and younger. All patients should reduce their sun exposure after their treatment and apply sun protection frequently.
