Treatment – Laser Genesis

Laser Genesis utilizing our latest Cutera Excel V+ Laser is now available at Coco Ruby. This advanced laser treatment safely and effectively treats vascular and pigmentation issues using micropulse delivery of 532nm and 1064nm wavelengths, suitable for all skin types.

This treatment focuses its energy on the deeper layers of the skin to stimulate collagen production, helping treat fine lines, wrinkles, scarring, acne, rosacea and more. The aim of the procedure is to promote vibrant, healthy looking skin.

Could I Benefit from a Laser Genesis Treatment? – Am I a good Candidate?

Suitable candidates are usually those;

  • In overall good health and not currently receiving treatment for skin cancer.
  • Are not using medication that heightens light sensitivity.
  • You are not pregnant.
    • Pregnancy-related hormones can affect skin pigmentation and potentially lead to unwanted outcomes.
  • Don’t suffer from systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE).

Patients must undergo a comprehensive skin consultation to assess treatment suitability. Our team will evaluate skin condition, understand goals, and recommend the best treatment for optimal results.


Laser Genesis treatments require minimal downtime. Patients may experience warmth and mild redness directly after treatment but this will settle over a day or two.
