Post Laser Skin Care – Tips To Make The Most Of Your Healing Period
If you are one of the many women and men who have decided on laser resurfacing for younger looking skin, you know from conversations with your doctor that post laser skin care is very important to achieve the best results. You will have to avoid the sun, but most importantly, there are changes to your skin care routine as it pertains to products that you should and should not use after laser treatments. Your skin is in a very sensitive state after laser treatments, so it is wise to use products meant for sensitive skin which do not contain ingredients like perfumes, dyes, alcohols, or other irritants. If the right products are not used, you could end up with results you are not happy with! Immediately after a laser treatment, your skin will likely be pinkish or reddish and even slightly inflamed. In the days following the treatments, your skin will become a more intense shade of red which is often accompanied by fluid build-up and some crusting of the skin. Besides lots of rest and staying out of the sun, Skin Rx suggests the following products:
- Skin Recovery Crème – This moisturizer is meant to cool, soothe, and repair your facial skin after laser treatments. It contains Aloe, Linden Extract, Echinacea, and Vitamin K. It actually works to repair broken capillaries and bruising.
- Willowherb Soothing Serum – This wonderful serum contains a powerful moisturizer, Hyaluronic Acid, as well as Ginko Biloba, Aloe, and Vitamin K. It aids in calming and healing the skin and works well in combination with the Skin Recovery Crème.
- Vital C – If you want to maintain the results you achieved with your laser treatments, try Vital C. This serum is highly effective against aging with antioxidants to protect from sun damage and other environmental factors.
