Laser genesis skin rejuvenation is an innovative, unique microsecond technology which gently heats the skin below the surface. This healthy heat stimulates the body's own natural healing response. Laser Genesis procedure has been scientifically proven to produce collagen; thus, texture of skin becomes smoother, pore size is reduced, and a dull complexion is brightened.
People and conditions will vary in the way they respond based on their skin biology, but individual treatment results over time can be dramatic with multiple treatments.
IPL uses light to heat the pigment and blood in the top layer of the skin, reducing discoloration and promoting a more even tone.
At Nell Clinic, both systems are available to even skin texture and facial tone, or pigmentation; help complexion; and reconstruct collagen. Superficial signs of aging on the face, neck and décolleté can be addressed, including fine lines, wrinkles, spider veins, excessive redness, rosacea, large pore size, scars(acne and surgical), sun and age spots(brown spots). The procedure is non-ablative, safe and effective with zero downtime and takes only 15-30 minutes.
Elos uses IPL ( Intense Pulse Light) combined with Radio Frequency energy to gently and effectively rejuvenate the skin. The IPL Laser treats pigmentation and vascular irregularities caused by the sun; this includes freckles, dull skin and rough skin. IPL is effective and comfortable for most skin types from fair to natural olive to yellow skin tone( i.e. Caucasian, light Mid-Eastern to Asian).

You can expect consistent results after each treatment without unwanted side effects such as bruising or excessive skin irritations. Treatments are performed in a relaxed, comfortable manner without topical anesthetics or gel.
How does Laser Genesis work?
By gently heating the upper dermis well below the skin surface, Laser Genesis stimulates collagen re-pattern. Additional heat is generated in dilated capillaries to reduce redness.

The treatment results are often subtle. On average, 4-6 treatments are needed for optimal results. Consult your skin care professional.
What are the possible side effects?
Most people report few side effects, but the most common one is a slight redness which disappears within a few hours. Consult your skin therapist.
What kind of textural improvements can I expect with Laser Genesis skin therapy?
Laser Genesis is a effective treatment for aging; sun damage; acne scars and stretch marks, rosacea; uneven skin tones with results after 4-6 sessions. A healthier complexion with reduced pore size, and diminished minor imperfections are some of the benefits.

INNOPen (or Micro-needling) and Alopecia
INNOPen increases blood supply to the hair follicles, and the reciprocating action of the Pen stimulates the dermal papilla and stem cells. This collagen induction has been shown to promote healthy hair growth and is the safest method of collagen induction therapy.
INNOPen leaves the epidermis (outer layers of the skin) undamaged and intact because it is non-intrusive; similar to Acupuncture. Micro-needling (INNOPen) uses common topical scalp treatment products usually used to treat hair loss, but the absorption is increased by 5 times or more. After the procedure, the scalp will naturally heal itself.
Although treating Alopecia with INNOPen is relatively new, it has been proven effective on multiple clients. It is suitable for hair loss in both men and women.
