About Skin Rejuvenation
Skin rejuvenation with Cutera XEO's Laser Genesis at Iowa Face + Body is a noninvasive aesthetic treatment that utilizes pulsating beams of energy to remove damaged skin cells layer by layer. The procedure is performed for reducing facial wrinkles and lines and for diminishing skin irregularities, such as pigmentation, acne scars, and other flaws. Our skin rejuvenation procedures are considered an effective treatment for men and women who want clearer, softer, younger-looking skin. Based on your needs and skin condition, the treatment will be customized for the best results. Customizations could include combination anti-aging therapy, such a Laser Genesis, plus dermaplaning or microneedling. There is little recovery time associated with our specialized skin rejuvenation treatments. Any questions or concerns may be reviewed with our lead aesthetician and medical director Samantha Quelland in West Des Moines, IA during your initial consultation.
Combination Anti-Aging Therapy
At Iowa Face + Body, we are committed to offering comprehensive and customized solutions to help our patients achieve their aesthetic goals. Our team recommends the thorough customization of your skin rejuvenation treatment with combination anti-aging therapy. After analyzing your skin and discussing your skin care goals, our team will recommend the combining of our Laser Genesis technology with procedures, such as microneedling or dermaplaning (described below). The strategic combination of these modalities allows us to provide you with a deep, effective skin rejuvenation that will have your skin glowing in no time.
Microneedling – Also known as collagen induction therapy, microneedling is a cosmetic procedure that creates very small micro-injuries in the skin with sterile needles, which prompts your body's natural collagen production process.
Dermaplaning – This gentle exfoliation technique removes the dead skin cells and peach fuzz from the outer layer of your skin. This procedure also prepares your skin for deep treatment by other procedures, such as Laser Genesis.

Our specialized skin rejuvenation procedures are geared toward patients who are unsatisfied with their overall complexion. If you see sun-damaged skin, age spots, acne scars, fine lines and wrinkles, pigmentation, or redness issues, our procedures may help correct these imperfections. Skin rejuvenation is also a great option if you have rough texture, scaly patches, or other skin surface problems. Laser Genesis isn't suggested for anyone who has very dark skin tones or active acne outbreaks, but we may be able to offer alternative treatment options, such as a chemical peel. In addition, it's important to understand that there is a recovery period needed after a Laser Genesis treatment.
Throughout the procedure, you will relax in our special treatment chair while the Laser Genesis handpiece passes over your recently deep-cleaned skin, directly targeting the cosmetic imperfection in that treatment area. You may feel the warmth from the laser followed with cold air from the system's built-in cooling device. The laser energy is designed to destroy damaged skin cells while also promoting new collagen growth. As Laser Genesis is noninvasive, you will not experience discomfort or pain. Depending on your unique needs and customized treatment plan, your Laser Genesis treatment may be followed by or initiated with our combination anti-aging therapy, which could include microneedling or dermaplaning based on your needs and aesthetic goals.
What to Expect
The treated skin may look pink, and there may be mild swelling and irritation if your procedure included microneedling. However, these symptoms subside in a few days as your skin heals and collagen growth is stimulated. Every patient needs to limit their UV exposure following their skin rejuvenation treatment and use sun protection regularly. To further protect your delicate skin as it heals, take careful measures to keep your hands off of your face, hydrate your skin and body with sufficient water consumption, and do not pick at or pull any skin that begins to flake away following treatment.

How can I help my skin recover after a rejuvenation treatment?
The best way to care for your skin is to protect it from the sun, hydrate with sufficient water consumption, and keep your hands away from your face. Take extra precautions by resisting the urge to peel or scratch any skin that flakes away during your healing process. If any special measures should be taken, our team will provide you with those instructions at the time of your procedure.
Should I choose skin rejuvenation, a chemical peel, or RF microneedling?
Samantha Quelland is extremely experienced with facial rejuvenation techniques and will be equipped to create a detailed and customized treatment plan after a brief consultation at our facility.
