Laser skin treatment is performed to revitalize skin, address problems and restore its healthy quality. It gets rid of damaged skin and triggers proper regeneration. Typically, after laser skin treatment, most dermatologists say that skin becomes rather sensitive; therefore, it’s imperative to give it extra tender loving care. Likewise, a careful routine can ensure the best results of the treatment.
When it comes to skin care after laser treatment, dermatologists say there are some things that you need to do. First, drink lots of water to keep skin naturally adequately hydrated so that some of the discomforts you feel on your skin can be eased. Another advantage to drinking more water is that it’s a fantastic way to flush out toxins from the body, making you less prone to infection.
Keep your skin moist using topical creams or ointment prescribed by the doctor. If there’s a particular way of applying these skin products, make sure you follow instructions religiously to expedite the complete healing process or regeneration. Clean your face as directed by your dermatologist.
Don’t insist on your own way – like using your Clarisonic or a cleanser that was not prescribed to you; even when you feel like the instructions with washing do not clean your face completely, stick to them because your doctor knows better. Remember, your skin is quite sensitive, and excessive cleaning can actually do more harm than good, so follow instructions with cleaning at all times.
Use sunblock with the recommended SPF (usually it’s 50++, especially if you live in a city like Dubai where it’s incredibly sunny most of the time) by your dermatologist. The sun is quite harmful to the skin, and even more so when the new skin is surfacing. Sunblock is great protection from damaging UVA and UVB rays. Even when you have no intention of going out, apply sunblock still because even artificial light sources can cause photosensitivity.
Avoid the sun as much as you can, like if you can’t wear sunglasses and a wide-brimmed hat to prevent direct hit of sunlight. Not only will this protect your skin from damage but you can also avoid the often uncomfortable stinging sensation of being exposed to the sun. Eat right. There are foods which can actually contribute significantly to your skin’s regenerative ability; those rich in vitamins and minerals such as green leafy vegetables, purple fruits, and fatty fish can boost healing and production of collagen.
