Laser Regenesis Program

This program is a wonderful comfortable treatment for any skin that needs regenerating. Our Laser Regenesis Program utilises the properties of the laser to target the seven signs of ageing.

MOS laser Regenesis program uses our LED and Q switch laser with Zoom and MLA fractionated hand pieces, of which we received the first in the country.

What is included in the Laser Pegenesis program?

MoS Laser Regenesis program combines the lasers’ different pulse modes to treat all seven signs of ageing in a targeted program over 4-6 months. The program consists of 4 treatment sessions each 4-6 weeks apart, where each session targets a different concern.

How is Laser Regenesis treatment performed?

The skin being treated will be cleaned. You will then be given some eye protection in the form of goggles or eye stickers. The laser will then be used to treat the areas of concern. The laser may use a cooling system too to reduce discomfort. This blows cold onto the surface layer of skin to cool it. The procedure is relatively comfortable and may feel like an elastic band flicking the skin at times. The procedure can take about 30 minutes.

Which lasers do you use?

We use a mixture of lasers including an Erbium, Nd:Yag and Q-Switch laser to treat the concerns your skin has.

What is the process of the program?

Month 1:

Resurfacing to improve skin texture and tone.

Month 2:

Pigmentation and sun damage is targeted.

Month 3:

Targeted collagen stimulation and pore reduction to reduce lines and plump the skin.

Month 4:

Further focused plumping and hydration to improve dullness and blotchiness.

What areas does it treat/what does it treat?

This procedure focuses mainly on the face, but it can be used on the neck, décolletage and hands.

Laser Regenesis treatment benefits

As we age our skin thins, becomes dull, loses its elasticity and shows surface discoloration and textural changes. For this reason, a multilayered laser treatment program is required over time.

This treatment is great for those wishing to have a very comfortable treatment with minimum to no downtime, that specifically targets the skin’s concerns. leading to a smooth, even, glowing skin surface.

What other treatments work well with this?

Laser is a great modality for general skin rejuvenation, smoothing and brightening. It also has the added benefits of leading to a clearer, softer, more luminous and glowing skin. To optimise the treatment results, a home skincare regime will be recommended. LED treatments and facials can help the skin recover better after laser treatments. Dermal filler can be used for facial shape changes that occur with ageing and anti-wrinkle injections can be used to help reduce visible upper facial lines.
