Laser Treatment After-Care: Nurturing your skin to perfection

Congratulations on your laser treatment at The Skin and Wellbeing Clinic! You’ve taken the first step to smoother, healthier skin. Now, let’s discuss what you can do to ensure your skin’s recovery and maintain those fantastic results.

Immediate after-care

  1. Cooling and Soothing: After your laser treatment, your skin may experience some redness or mild discomfort. Applying a cool compress or aloe vera gel can provide instant relief.

  2. Hydration: Keep your skin well-hydrated by applying a gentle, fragrance-free moisturizer. Avoid products with harsh chemicals, fragrances, or excessive exfoliants immediately after treatment.

  3. Sun Protection: Your skin will be more sensitive to sunlight, so it’s crucial to shield it from harmful UV rays. Use a broad-spectrum sunscreen with SPF 30 or higher, and avoid direct sun exposure for a few weeks post-treatment.

Refrain from these practices

  1. Avoid Excessive Heat: Skip hot baths, saunas, and vigorous workouts for at least 24 hours post-treatment to prevent unnecessary irritation.

  2. Steer Clear of Harsh Products: Stay away from abrasive scrubs, retinol, or glycolic acid-based products for a week or two. They can be too aggressive for recently treated skin.

Long-term after-care

  1. Moisturize: Continue using a gentle moisturizer to maintain your skin’s hydration and suppleness.

  2. Sunscreen: Keep incorporating sunscreen into your daily routine. Protection from UV damage is a must for preserving your skin’s rejuvenated appearance.

  3. Avoid Picking: If you notice any flaking or scabbing, resist the urge to pick at your skin. Let it heal naturally to prevent scarring.

  4. Regular Follow-Up: Consult with our professionals for recommended follow-up treatments. A series of laser treatments is often necessary to achieve the best results.
