Recently, I stumbled upon Skin Laundry on Instagram stories. After looking at their social media and website, I knew I had to try it! The first appointment is free, which is awesome for an expensive service.
The staff made me feel very welcome and comfortable, as well as did the RN that was performing the treatment. They have a few different treatments, however the free treatment is the laser and light facial. They use a YAG laser first, which is like a warm, pop rocks feeling. Then they use an Intense Pulse Light laser which helps to kill bacteria, and target pigmentation, inflammation and redness.
I was nervous for the treatment, as I have very sensitive skin, however the facial was quick and got easier as it went on. At first, the laser felt shocking on my skin, but after the first round I didn’t feel it at all! The second round is painless, although they do use a powerful light which you can see through the goggles. Since it was free, I decided to add a hydration boost because the cold weather was making my skin extremely dry. The hydration boost was nice and cooling after the laser treatment!
My skin looked great post-treatment and I was very hopeful that this would help with my acne scars and inflammation over time. I had a small breakout the next day, but it quickly subsided and my skin looked great over the weekend! I would definitely recommend trying this if you have acne prone skin, acne scars, pigmentation, or really any other skin issues!
I am going again this week, and I will hopefully give an update on my progress! If you decide to go, feel free to reach out for a referral 🙂
