OVERVIEW OF LASER GENESIS Nd:YAG IN WASHINGTON DC

    Cutera’s Nd:YAG lasers have a patented PowerFlex technology provides fast treatments with the highest degree of efficacy.

    With its microsecond settings, Laser Genesis targets the microvasculature that causes flushing, and is the only laser treatment available that works in this way.

    Clinical data on this laser demonstrate heating of the collagen layer of the skin (dermis) that triggers collagen production to improve the appearance of wrinkles and help to make skin more dense and firm. It is FDA cleared for the treatment of wrinkles, including those around the eyes that can be difficult to treat.

    Improvements in redness and smoothing effects emerge over several weeks, and a series of treatments is advised for optimal results.

HOW DOES DR. SHERBER APPROACH LASER GENESIS

This can be a treatment of the face alone, but Dr. Sherber generally recommends including the jawline and neck, and even the chest and hands depending on the appearance of your skin. This stimulates the production of new collagen and triggers son cell turnover: these are processes that slow with aging, and so the Clear + Brilliant treatment makes a meaningful physiologic impact on the skin.

This laser treatment is akin to ‘aerating the lawn’ and enhances the absorption of topical active ingredients applied post-treatment. Dr. Sherber will choose a post-treatment serum that best addresses your skin’s needs, and it will absorb much more deeply than if applied to untreated skin.

WHAT CAN I EXPECT FROM TREATMENT?

This type of treatment is mainly a ‘winter sport,’ as it’s important that skin isn’t tanned prior to treatment and that it remain protected from sun exposure post-treatment. For areas that are prone to flushing, the Nd:YAG laser can be used in a micropulsed mode called Laser Genesis

This is an excellent treatment to calm the symptoms of rosacea, particularly in combination with at-home skincare.

Laser Genesis can improve the redness and the contour of scars without pain or downtime.

What are Dr. Sherber’s patients saying?

  • Great experience – Baltimore, MD
    Botox/Juvaderm has made me look 10 yrs younger! Excellent results. Minimal bruising. Very comfortable experience with a very caring doctor.”

    – Kim in Pa (RealSelf)

  • “I started seeing Dr. Sherber for Botox, laser and fillers, approximately 10 years ago in Baltimore. I followed her to Washington D.C. when she and her husband, plastic surgeon Dr. Rad, opened a joint practice. Last year it was time to for Dr. Sherber to hand me over to Dr. Rad for surgical work. I had an amazing experience with Dr. Rad when he performed a lower face/necklift, chin implant, lower blepharoplasty and fat transfer. At the one year mark, I decided to return for a tummy tuck and upper arm lipo. This time I was smart to stay in Sibley hospital – 2 nights – after my experience with hard-to-control pain during the first 2 post-op days last year, when we were in an outpatient surgical center. I was treated very well despite being very needy with respect to pain control. Everything is still very swollen and bruised but looks good so far. I will continue to travel to D.C. for maintenance treatment and any new procedures with both of them. They are that amazing.”

  • “I have been seeing Dr. Sherber for over a decade – I followed her from Baltimore to Washington D.C. – for skin care including Botox, fillers and laser, as well as medical dermatology including total skin checks. She is brilliant and personable and I recommend her highly to everyone I know!”

  • “Dr. Sherber is a brilliant physician who knows how to make just about any woman look much better in the most non-invasive ways. An artist!”

Nd:YAG

  • Cutera’s Nd:YAG lasers have a patented PowerFlex technology provides fast treatments with the highest degree of efficacy.
  • The sapphire-cooled laser tip enables high energy levels to be used during treatment without overheating of the skin, and optimizes comfort of the treatment.
  • Improvements in redness and smoothing effects emerge over several weeks, and a series of treatments is advised for optimal results.
  • This is very effective in treating dilated or “broken” capillaries, and can also fade blush veins under the eyes.

Nd:YAG

Redness of the skin is best treated with an optimally targeted vascular laser that treats dilated blood vessels on the face and body with maximal comfort and efficacy.
