Non-invasive cosmetic procedures such as peels, microdermabrasion, or skin resurfacing are popular at Smooth Solutions. Anticipating their results is exciting as you see your skin renew and refresh. Here are a few after-care tips to maximize the results of your treatments:
- Don’t forget to wear sunscreen. Microdermabrasion, resurfacing treatments and peels treat both the upper and the deeper layers of your skin. It can take a few months for your fresh, rejuvenated skin to appear. During this time, your skin is extra vulnerable to the harmful rays of the sun. These rays are damaging and may result in blotchy hyper-pigmentation. The use of sunscreen of at least 30 or higher as well as wearing a hat will protect your newly treated skin.
- Better yet, stay out of the sun while your skin heals. Sun exposure should be avoided while your skin is healing. Exposure of treated skin to heat should also be avoided as it may induce redness, swelling and for deeper chemical peels, blisters under the skin’s surface.
- Easy does it with your usual make-up and skincare products. You can gradually re-introduce make-up and your regular skincare products, depending on your skin and the type of procedure.
Following a peel or a resurfacing treatment, you will be given specific instructions about how to clean, moisturize and care for your skin. Remember that your skin has, in fact, been injured and will need time to heal. Protecting it and doing exactly what your doctor tells you to do is imperative. Peels and resurfacing treatments are popular because they offer visible, skin-refreshing results in a non-invasive way.
