Don’t you love the way your skin looks after a laser treatment? Treatments like the Venus Erbium YAG laser and the Lightpod Neo treatment work wonders for your skin! It’s so clear, smooth and beautiful, and looks the best it has in years. Is there anything you can do to maintain these results and keep your skin looking this good for as long as possible? As a matter of fact, there is:
Follow Post Treatment Care Instructions
The best way to make sure your results from a laser skin treatment last is to make sure your skin heals well. Laser treatments often leave your skin sensitive to sunlight, so avoiding sun exposure is vital to ensuring you don’t develop freckles and dark spots. In addition, washing your face with a gentle cleanser and applying an ointment can help keep skin moisturized and help it to heal faster. Your doctor can suggest some products that are specifically designed to be used after laser treatments.
Invest in Quality Skincare
After your skin has completely healed, you should optimize your skin care routine. While it can be tempting to go for the cheaper drug store products, doing research on high quality, dermatologist approved products can make a big difference in the quality of your skin and help you maintain your results from the laser treatment longer. In addition, make sure you are applying retinoid products and slathering on that sunscreen to help fight aging or damaged skin.
Consider scheduling other treatments
Unfortunately, even with all of these steps, touch up treatments will be required to keep your skin refreshed and beautiful. You can, however, lengthen the time between these laser treatments by taking advantage of the other lighter treatment options designed to rejuvenate skin. Treatments such as microneedling and VI Peels can refresh the skin and help the results from the laser treatment to last longer.
