When it comes to beauty, you want the very best for your skin. Whether it be a particular cosmetic treatment or medical-grade skin care solution, it needs to be top notch in order to see noticeable and natural results with a lasting outcome. At Dermacare Laser & Skin Care Clinics, we are proud to help teach you about the best products for your skin, especially after your treatment session with us.

Although all of our medical-grade skin care products are great options, it is important to know that not every skincare product can be beneficial to your skin after a laser session. At this point, your skin is very sensitive, so random off-the-shelf products may have the potential to do more harm than good. Every patient and their skin is different, so let’s dive in and explore some of our favorite must-haves to use after a laser treatment at Dermacare!

Why Is Skin Care Important After Laser Treatment?

Laser treatments work by starting your body’s healing process, generating new cell growth, and stimulating collagen and elastin production. This is all thanks to the heat delivered by the laser, which creates targeted micro-lesions in your skin. These lesions are essential for the final effect, but they can make your skin feel very sensitive during the healing process.

Without proper care, these lesions can turn from healing into damage. Factors like excessive sunlight exposure can lead to pigmentation and skin drying, as well as scars. If you don’t cleanse your skin correctly, you might also experience unwanted infections. 

Using the right products ensures the healing process goes as smoothly as possible. The proper routine can shorten your recovery and reduce potential side effects, allowing your skin to glow.

What Dermacare Products Should You Use?

Choosing the best products after a laser treatment can make the difference between good and bad results. Here are some tried-and-true Dermacare products that can encourage a smooth recovery:

1. Papaya Enzyme Gentle Cleanser

The Papaya Enzyme Gentle Cleanser has the ability to gently exfoliate dead skin cells and debris, creating less of a chance for the skin to become exposed to environmental surroundings. It cleanses the skin while enhancing its natural barrier and protecting the  newly rejuvenated skin. 

2. Gentle Green Tea Cleanser

Regular soap can be very dry for your skin after a laser treatment, and this can lead to scarring. To prevent that, you can use a cleanser instead. The Gentle Green Tea Cleanser is infused with numerous vitamins and active agents such as Vitamin A and green tea to ensure clean and nourished skin that heals without a flaw.

3. Laser Treatment Recovery Complex

Laser treatments can bring a series of side effects such as itching, temporary rashes, irritation, and so on. Featuring pure Aloe Vera and one percent hydrocortisone, the Laser Treatment Recovery Complex cream can offer relief from unpleasant symptoms. 

4. Soothing Green Tea Mist

Green tea has an anti-inflammatory action that can calm down your irritated skin. For this reason, our Soothing Green Tea Mist can be very helpful after your treatment. This rejuvenating mist has been fortified with antioxidants and micronutrients to help remove impurities while soothing and nourishing your skin.

5. Age Defense Sunscreen

Sun damage can be very bad for your skin in general, but especially after a laser treatment that makes the skin more sensitive than usual. This (among many other reasons) is always adding sunblock to your routine is crucial for the health of your skin. The Age Defense Sunscreen will protect you from harmful UV rays, preventing the premature signs of aging from appearing. 

Why Wait & Risk It?! 

Proper skin care after laser treatment can make the difference between a smooth recovery and a lengthy one. By not caring for your skin, you risk rendering the treatment null, creating more scarring and pigmentation issues.
