Tips for Taking Care of Your Skin After Your Laser Treatment

Midsota, Laser Treatment Aftercare - ImageLaser treatments at Midsota MedSpa are a wonderful way to refresh and rejuvenate your skin. From fine lines and wrinkles, brown spots and discoloration, veins and vascular lesions, to a dull and lackluster complexion—laser treatments can help with it all! However, there are steps that you can take afterward to ensure the best results from your laser treatment!

Give Your Skin Time to Recover

In the days following your laser treatment, you will want to give your skin time to recover and heal. Just as laser treatments vary in intensity, so does the time it can take for your skin to fully recover. While many of our patients do not experience any side effects after their laser treatment, some may experience two to three days of some swelling, redness, and slight irritation.

Keep Your Skin Covered

It is best to keep your skin well protected following any laser treatment—making fall the perfect time to start your laser treatment journey. Take advantage of our cooler temperatures here in Minnesota to keep your newly treated skin covered. Scarves, hats, and sunglasses can help protect your skin. Did you opt for laser hair removal? Soft, loose, and natural fabrics can keep your skin comfortable as well as protected.

Sun Protection Is Key
Sun protection is very important as any exposure to the sun’s damaging rays can interrupt healing and can even cause hyperpigmentation. Protect your skin by applying a broad-spectrum sunscreen with an SPF of at least 30.  Eau Thermale Avène has a number of sunscreens available in ultra-light formulas that are as effective as they are moisturizing. In addition to sun cream, they also come in mattifying and tinted compacts that make application (and reapplication!) easy.

Continue to Nourish Your Skin

Did you know that laser treatments increase the efficacy of your skincare? By removing the outermost layer of dull, damaged, and dead skin cells, laser treatments allow your skincare to penetrate deeply into your skin’s dermis. Take advantage of this opportunity by continuing to nourish your skin with professional-grade skincare. We recommend skin-friendly products from Glytone® or Vivier™. Glytone’s Hydration Intensifying Serum is a post-laser favorite of Midsota’s aesthetic specialists. Fragrance-free, non-comedogenic, and paraben-free, this specially formulated serum is easy on delicate skin and can help soothe any post-treatment irritation.

“I want to say Thank you to Dr. Heath and the staff at Midsota. Every time I came into the center I was welcomed. Dr. Heath made me feel very comfortable discussing my options for breast reduction. I was kept well informed and felt very safe and secure during the procedure and all of my office visits.”
