The period following a cosmetic or medical procedure is an important one for the skin, as this is the time when it can recover and heal properly so that it can return to its original healthy state. Although the skin is designed to regenerate itself on a regular basis, a little helping hand is sometimes needed which is where your skin care comes in.
Post-procedure skin care is vital to ensure that the skin heals successfully, especially when scarring has occurred.
Following a procedure like a chemical peel, microdermabrasion or laser treatment the skin might look inflamed and feel sore so you need to use gentle, soothing products to ensure that delicate skin doesn’t become damaged beyond repair.
Hydration is important for post-procedure skin in order to keep it healthy and supple which ensures that the skin can heal itself properly. Redness and inflammation is also a problem following a cosmetic procedure so look for products that include soothing ingredients like Aloe Vera, Vitamin E and Chamomile to help reduce the severity of angry looking skin. If you have scarring following a procedure then scar gels that are silicone based will help to protect the delicate skin while it heals by forming a protective barrier to keep out bacteria and other skin irritants.
Additionally make-up that cares for the skin as it conceals is also important, especially if you don’t want to avoid going out following a procedure. Our selection includes concealing products designed for sensitive skins that also provide amazing coverage to hide scars, redness and uneven pigmentation.
