Age & Sun Spot Treatment

Solar Genesis — Uneven skin tone caused by sun damage, age, rosacea and acne rosacea, can be treated using a pulsed light system available with each of these lasers. Dr. Carroll and her team will determine which laser is appropriate for you skin type. Best of all, these lasers are so comfortable, no topical anesthetic or gel is required before being treated.

Solar Genesis, also known as IPL, is an innovative way to quickly, safely and comfortably remove sun and age spots from your face, chest, arms, and hands, without gel or anesthetic cream. The signs of sun damage will flake off after one or two treatments, leaving clear, younger looking skin.

The Solar Genesis Difference

Comfort. We have created a pulsed light system that is exceptionally effective at treating pigment at a much more comfortable energy level. There is no need to apply anesthetic gel or cream beforehand, and you can realize superior results in just one or two treatments.

Frequently Asked Questions

What areas can be treated?

Virtually any part of your body with sun and age spots or freckles can be safely treated. The face, chest, shoulders, and arms are the most popular areas for treatment because they have typically had the most sun exposure. Both discrete spots and skin densely covered with freckles respond well to treatment.

What does the treatment do?

The visible light delivered by the Xeo Genesis procedure is selectively absorbed by the pigmented spots on your skin. It's the heating of the pigmented cells that causes the therapeutic effect.

Is it true that I'll need to arrive an hour early to apply a numbing cream?

No. Unlike other systems, the Xeo Genesis treatment requires no anesthetic creams or gels before treatment. Gel is messy, time consuming, and uncomfortable. Xeo Genesis therapy is the next generation in pulsed light treatments. No gel!

What do treatments feel like?

When the handpiece is placed on your skin, it will feel cool and comfortable. When the pulse of light is delivered, you may feel a mild, brief pinching sensation.

How long will the treatment take?

The actual treatment will only take a few minutes. And, since there is no need to apply gel or any topical anesthetic, your total appointment time can easily fit into your lunch hour.

How many treatments will I need?

Typically, two to three treatments are sufficient to see dramatic results. Additional treatments may be required for very large or dark spots or for densely covered areas.

How safe are these treatments?

Very! Both the CoolGlide ® Xeo and Genesis Plus systems have been FDA cleared. They have been rigorously tested in clinical studies. The pulsed light handpieces we re designed to treat only pigment, not the surrounding skin or tissue.

What happens after the treatment and are there any side effects?

Immediately following the treatment, the spots may start to darken. You may notice a slight reddening of the surrounding skin. This typically subsides within a couple of hours. Over the course of the next one to three weeks, darkened spots will fade and flake off. Consult with your medical professional for complete information on the benefits and risks of treatment.

Will the spots reappear over time?

No. New spots may appear. These too can be removed. Remember to liberally apply sunscreen when outdoors to minimize sun damage and the appearance of new spots.

Can all of my spots be treated this way?

Spots formed by sun exposure can effectively be treated with the Xeo Genesis procedure. There are, however, other types of pigmented lesions, such as birthmarks and moles. Consult with your medical professional to identify the spots most likely to respond well to Xeo Genesis Skin Therapy.
