Post laser skin is extremely sensitive and needs more than just time to heal. The right skin care procedures and products are super important! Laser skin resurfacing treatments remove the outer layers of the skin so you must manage the after effects of such a treatment to ensure proper healing. At this time, your skin is much more susceptible to infections and bacteria. After your skin is healed, you will also want to wear the right makeup – something you may not have even thought about. Certain makeup products are more irritating than others, and you will want to choose a makeup that is ultra sensitive and all natural for your post laser skin. Mineral makeup is a great choice because it is all natural and does not cause irritation – even to the most sensitive skin! Also, with ingredients like zinc oxide built in, mineral makeup has sun protection, too. Skin Rx recommends the following mineral makeup for post laser skin care: Ultra Sensitive Loose Mineral Base – 7 different shades to choose from, provides excellent coverage and is very long lasting. Ultra Sensitive Mineral Blush – Several different colors of blush available which provides a long lasting, lovely glow to ultra sensitive skin. Ultra Sensitive Finishing Powder – A translucent powder which can be used both as a primer before our mineral base or as a setting powder once your mineral base is applied.

Susan Travis
After you have made the decision to receive laser skin resurfacing treatments and your appointments are booked, you should start to prepare for caring for your skin post-op. Proper post laser skin care is the best way to ensure you get optimum results from your treatments and also to help you avoid any complications or irritations that could potentially get in the way of healing. Using the right post-op skin care products will promote faster healing times and even reduce the appearance of bruising and discolorations immediately following your procedure. Your skin will undergo certain changes during the healing process, and your best bet is to use non-irritating post laser skin care products which are free from perfumes, alcohols, and other harsh ingredients. Skin Rx suggests the following post laser skin care products to minimize healing time following your cosmetic procedures:

RosaCalm Skin Serum – A calming skin serum which soothes, hydrates, and calms inflammation. Vital K Ampoules – An emollient loaded with Vitamin K which helps to heal and calm the skin post-op. Have questions about post laser skin care? Post a comment and we’ll help you with your skin care needs!

Post Laser Skin Care – Tips To Make The Most Of Your Healing Period

Tiffany Holley
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.
