Prolonging a Rejuvenation Procedure
Most topical rejuvenation procedures, whether a laser treatment, chemical peel or dermabrasion, produce controlled injury to the skin. It is through the body’s natural healing process that new, rejuvenated skin is revealed, showing the results of the procedure. Healthy skin heals more quickly. Therefore, it is important to follow your skincare professional’s instructions to optimize your skin’s health when prolonging the effects of the procedure. Research your procedure. Ask questions to better understand how to stimulate healing and prolong the results of the procedure. Take special note of products your skincare professional specifically recommends you use to stimulate healing and extend the results. You will want to ensure you are following a skincare regimen that optimizes skin health after your procedure. Additionally, you will want to understand if you should use a skin-brightening product. You can reduce your risk of hyperpigmentation (brown spots) after IPL, laser resurfacing, and chemical peels by using a skin-brightening product.
