Laser treatments are a fantastic way to rejuvenate your skin and improve your complexion. But before you book your first laser treatment, let’s make sure you’re fully prepared for the journey ahead. Here’s your ultimate guide to prepping for laser treatments at MoS.

Why choose laser

Laser treatments employ advanced light technology to target specific skin concerns. Our laser treatments are customised to your concern and are priced according to the downtime and severity of concern being treated. All of MoS laser treatments include a collagen stimulation step for antiaging. Lasers used can be a combination of Resurfacing, Fractional, Full Ablative, Genesis, Ng Yag, Erbium, Q switch, Vascular or IPL.

Unlike topical treatments that may only address surface-level concerns, lasers penetrate deep into the skin’s layers, targeting specific areas with unparalleled precision. Whether you’re dealing with wrinkles, pigmentation, sundamage, rosacea, redness, vessels, fine lines, uneven texture, uneven colour, acne or general antiaging lasers can effectively address a wide range of skin concerns.

Laser treatments offer long-lasting results that continue to improve over time. With proper skincare , regular maintenance sessions and sun protection, the results of your laser treatment can last for months or even years.

Before the Treatment:

Before your laser treatment, there are a few essential steps to take to ensure optimal results:

  1. Consultation with our Experts: At Ministry of Skin, your safety and satisfaction are our top priorities. Before undergoing any laser treatment, we recommend you a consult with one of our expert therapists for a thorough consultation. During this appointment, we’ll assess your skin, discuss your goals and expectations, put a tailored treatment plan in place and determine the most suitable laser treatment for your unique needs.
  2. Get Informed: Log on to our patient experience portal, TouchMD and read the before and after treatment guide added to your account. Also, please read your consent form and have any questions ready for your therapist when you arrive for your treatment.
  3.  Avoid Sun Exposure: In the weeks leading up to your laser treatment, it’s crucial to avoid excessive sun exposure. UV rays can make your skin more sensitive to laser energy and increase the risk of complications. Be sure to wear sunscreen daily and protect your skin with hats and clothing when outdoors.
  4. Avoid Certain Medications and Products: Some medications and skincare products can increase the risk of adverse reactions to laser treatments. Be sure to inform your clinician of any medications you’re taking, including over-the-counter and prescription drugs. Additionally, avoid using retinoids, exfoliating agents, and other harsh skincare products in the days leading up to your treatment.
  5. Arrive MakeUp Free: please arrive to any appointment at MoS with a clean fresh face.

On Arrival for your Treatment:

When you arrive at MoS for your laser treatment, here’s what you can expect:

  1. Warm Welcome: You’ll be greeted by our friendly staff in our stylish clinic environment. We want you to feel comfortable and relaxed throughout your treatment experience.
  2. Photos: Your therapist will take a minimum of five photos prior to beginning your treatment. These will be securely stored within your TouchMD account, and you will have access to them.
  3. Preparation:Before your laser treatment begins, your therapist will cleanse your skin thoroughly. This ensures that the laser energy can penetrate your skin effectively and deliver optimal results.
  4. Numbing Cream: Depending on the treatment you are having, your therapist may apply topical anaesthetic cream to the area being treated to make your treatment more comfortable.
  5. Safety Measures: Your therapist will take all necessary safety precautions to protect your eyes and surrounding tissues during the laser treatment. This may involve providing you with protective eyewear.

What to expect from your Treatment:

During your laser treatment at MoS, here’s what you can expect:

  1. Sensation:You may experience a mild sensation of heat or tingling as the laser energy is delivered to your skin. Rest assured that this is normal and typically well-tolerated by most individuals.
  2. Duration: The duration of your laser treatment will vary depending on the size and number of areas being treated. Your therapist will provide you with an estimated treatment time beforehand so you know what to expect.
  3. Post-Treatment Care: After your laser treatment, your therapist will provide you with detailed instructions for post-treatment care via TouchMD. This may include avoiding sun exposure, using soothing skincare products, and scheduling follow-up appointments as needed. While some laser treatments may require downtime for recovery, many modern lasers offer minimal to no downtime, allowing you to resume your daily activities shortly after treatment. This makes laser treatments a convenient option for those with busy lifestyles.
  4. Continued Care: Your therapist will guide you through the next steps of your MoS journey. That may include follow up laser treatments or include other treatments such as skin needling, Ultraformer HiFu or HydraFacial.
