Laser Facial with Laser Genesis & Photofacial with Limelight
Hybrid MD offers two types of laser facials: Laser Genesis and IPL (also known as a photofacial). Hybrid MD and CUTERA® are working together to bring the highest quality laser facial treatment to our guests, here in South Orange County.
Laser Facial with Laser Genesis
The Laser Genesis is a gentle treatment that is proven scientifically to produce new collagen, promoting your own body to help reducing the fine wrinkles, redness and scars. Laser Genesis can be used to treat the area around the face, neck and chest. Overall effect of multiple treatments of Laser Genesis can be quite dramatic. These are expected results from multiple treatments:
- Any redness will reduce in appearance
- Fading acne scars
- Stimulating the production of new collagen
- Reducing the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines
- Promoting healthy and youthful looking skin
How does Laser Genesis work?
By slowly and gently applying the heat to upper dermis, Laser Genesis would stimulate your own collagen to improve the appearance of wrinkles on your skin. In the case of rosacea or skin redness, Laser Genesis would generate heat in the dilated capillaries to reduce the redness of the targeted skin area. The most amazing feature of Laser Genesis is the treatment works on almost all skin types/colors. The laser produces gentle heat that you will not need any gel, anesthetic cream or ice prior to treatment.
Laser Genesis – Post Treatment:
The biggest concern with laser facial that worries our guests has always been the down time. Laser Genesis has ZERO down time. Our guests can return to their normal daily activities and if you are participating in any outdoor activities, make sure to utilize some sunscreen. On average, our patients achieve optimal results after 4 to 5 treatments, with a rest period of 4 to 6 weeks between treatments.

Photofacial (IPL) with Limelight
Intense Pulsed Light, also known as IPL is the photofacial treatment that we offer at Hybrid MD. Using the Cutera® Limelight laser, Hybrid MD offers a non-invasive, non-ablative approach to skin rejuvenation. The treatment helps to reduce the imperfections in the skin tone as a result of aging or photo damage. Limelight is proven to treat any part of your face, neck and décolleté that suffers from conditions such as skin redness, telangiectasia(tiny veins), brown and red spots.
How does it work?
The setting for the laser treatment will be customized according to your skin type. Limelight laser will heat the targeted area by sending light pulses. During the procedure, you will experience a mild pinching or stinging sensation. Using a gel is recommended to cool the area prior to treatment. The usage of anesthesia or pain medicine is normally not required. To achieve optimal results, 4-5 treatments are usually sufficient, however, additional treatment may be recommended based on the desired end point.
Limelight – Post Treatment:
Immediately after the first treatment, the brown spots will darken and the skin will be slightly red. You may experience slight swelling in the treated area which usually lasts for a few hours and possibly a day or longer. The result can be seen within 1 to 3 weeks. The darkened brown spots will either flake off or fade. The redness of your skin will also decrease and your overall skin complexion will improve. Your skin may experience new sun damage, however this can also be treated with Limelight.
