Laser Genesis: How to get your skin glowing this event season

It’s one of the most popular laser treatments going around. Laser Genesis is best known for its little to no downtime and ability to get the skin glowing. Exactly why it’s a pre-event favourite for many celebrities, socialites and now me at Melbourne’s Clinica Lase.

I faced the day in an unique predicament as the lead social media content curator for the AFL at the ground. I was so excited going into the…
