Getting Laser Resurfacing? You Want to Know This!

Keystone Cosmetic Surgery Center

The appearance of the skin changes as we age; most people realize this. What we don’t often see is just how many factors influence the skin. Our genetics play some part in how we age, but there is much more contribution made by our lifestyle habits and how much time we spend in the sun without sunscreen. Even our facial expressions affect the elasticity and firmness of tissue. Those who know the skin needs help often look for it in the form of products. This is a good start that should be a part of a bigger plan that includes laser skin resurfacing. 

Laser skin resurfacing delivers controlled energy into the skin to remove the uppermost layer of cells. These cells no longer provide value to appearance and are just stuck in place. The dead and damaged cells that sit on the epidermis dull the complexion and make it much more difficult for skincare products to achieve their intended effects. These cells need to go, and laser is a great method of removing them. 

What About After Laser Treatment?

It isn’t enough to undergo a single treatment and expect the skin to age more gracefully. After you have laser skin resurfacing, we recommend that you:

  • Protect your skin daily with sunscreen. Whether it is contained in your moisturizer or you apply sunscreen separately, make sure you use a broad-spectrum product with an SPF of 30. This is not a seasonal practice, either. Harmful UV rays beam right through a thick cloud layer, too.
  • Feed your skin. What you eat matters to your skin. Foods that are rich in antioxidants, such as leafy greens, are excellent supporters for healthy skin. 
  • Stay hydrated. The body needs adequate hydration to function well and to flush toxins and debris out. Without sufficient hydration, small amounts of toxins can build up, creating problems for the skin. 
  • Stick to a program. Don’t just wash your face, create a skincare program that will keep the nutrients coming. After cleansing, the skin needs hydrating or reparative serums and moisturizer. Oh, and sunscreen. We can’t advise this enough.

Give your skin a leg up on the aging process. Call our Hazleton or Pottsville office to learn more about laser resurfacing.
