Post-procedure Skincare

Post-procedure Skincare

After a skin treatment or facial procedure, your skin needs to recover. Your skin may require specific skincare different from what you use daily.


We can advise you on post-treatment skincare to follow.


Many cosmetic treatments, such as chemical peels and medical needling [microneedling] stimulate new collagen production through controlled trauma to the skin.


It is therefore normal for the skin to become more sensitive after treatment.


Post-treatment skincare, such as moisturisers or cleansers, focus on restoring the protective barrier of the skin.


By nursing the skin back to health and encouraging the skin to heal will allow results to be much better.


There are plenty of ingredients that you should avoid.


These may include:


Retinol & Retinoids


For as much good as retinol and retinoids do, the time you may need to stay away from the vitamin A derivatives is after a treatment.


Saying that, retinol can help speed up the healing process after a treatment, but this needs to be done carefully and under supervision.


Anti-Acne Ingredients


Ingredients like salicylic acid and benzoyl peroxide can dry out the skin, and as a rule should not be used until the skin fully heals.


Vitamin C


Some skin types are very sensitive to Vitamin C. Vitamin C should be avoided in the first few days following a procedure.
