Proper skincare is essential following both surgical and nonsurgical cosmetic procedures. The care you take of your skin will directly impact the length of time your results last. More than that, the way in which you care for your skin can help prevent serious damage, and improve the glow of your skin even without first having a procedure performed.
How to Care for Your Skin
Your skin needs to be taken care of every day. The first step in keeping skin healthy is keeping it clean. We offer a full line of professional skincare products, and will recommend the type that is best suited to meet your unique needs. In addition to clean skin, skin needs to be kept properly moisturized and protected from the sun. From our cold, dry winters, to our hot, humid summers, your skin will have different needs during each season. In the winter, wind and cold can combine to make skin chapped, red, and irritated. Having a moisturizer specifically targeted to meet your needs can help ensure both comfort and appearance.
In the summer, sun exposure can lead to wrinkles and even more serious precancerous and cancerous lesions. Using an appropriate sun screen will help reduce sun damage and allow you to live an active outdoor life without having to worry about these dangers.
