The Best Skin Care After Laser Treatment

At Body Details True Laser® Centers, we want two things for our clients: flawless, healthy skin and flawless, healthy skin that lasts. That’s why we have created products to care for the skin before and after laser treatments. This article will show you how to maximize the results of your laser treatments.

While the information we provide here is invaluable, the best way to have your questions answered is to speak to a medical professional in person at a Body Details True Laser® Center near you. Your initial no-obligation consultation is free of charge.

How Laser Skin Treatments Work

Laser skin rejuvenation can work on the face or other areas of the body: hands, legs, feet, etc. Laser skin treatments can remove age spots, acne marks, skin discoloration, melasma, and more.

Typically the laser targets damaged, unhealthy, or discolored cells, destroying them while stimulating the growth of new cells. If you have scars, the laser can diminish the size and discoloration of the scar by removing dead tissue and cells that contrast the rest of your skin.

The skin responds best to laser treatments when it is healthy and well hydrated. With proper aftercare, your skin can retain its lustrous new glow. That’s why we recommend utilizing our skin products before and after laser facial or body treatments.

Body Details Product Overview

Body Details has an extensive line of skin treatment products, including sunscreen, moisturizers, cleansers, and toners. Here is a brief overview of our product line and a short description of what each one does:

Moisturizing Sunscreens

One of the most effective ways to spare your skin from the daily ravages of the sun is to apply sunscreen in the morning and reapply it throughout the day as needed. We have three effective sunscreens that are both gentle and protective:

Get Shady LightThis is a zinc oxide and octinoxate SPF 30 sunscreen tint that moisturizes the skin while also protecting it from the sun. Shady Light is available in three different shades — light, medium, and dark — to accommodate different skin tones.

Get Shady Medium An SPF 30 zinc oxide, octinoxate sunscreen that lightly tints the skin to provide a healthy glow while serving as the first line of defense against the UV rays. Available in light, medium, and dark tones.

Cover UpIf you prefer a stronger sunscreen without toner, Cover Up is an SPF 55 sunscreen cream that uses the same zinc oxide and octinoxate properties as Get Shady but without the toner. Aloe and sunflower oil moisturize the skin with this daily use sunscreen.

Facial Cleansers

Many commercial facial cleansers have soap bases, which can dry out your skin by removing the natural oils. In addition, the manufacturers sometimes use harsh chemicals in their products that can also absorb into the skin.

Feeling RosyThis is our rosehip seed cleanser solution for all skin types. Rosehip seed oil is rich in Vitamins A, C, and E. The oils naturally lift dirt from pores without drying out the skin by robbing it of its own oils. The skin simultaneously absorbs the vitamins, leaving your face clean and healthy.

Toners and Moisturizers

Regardless of whether or not you intend to avail yourself of the laser skin treatments at Body Details True Laser® Centers, it’s important to establish a healthy skin care regimen, particularly for your face and other exposed areas. These products will help you achieve healthy glowing skin.

Shine OnThis anti-aging cream utilizes peptides to improve skin elasticity and to reduce fine lines and wrinkles. Collagen tightens the skin to give you a youthful appearance.

Tone it UpThis is a toner that incorporates CoQ10 to boost the health of skin cells. Powerful antioxidants help to regulate your skin’s pH balance.

How About a Lift A face-lifting gel that actually works. This gel establishes a tightening film over the face, reducing lines, wrinkles, puffiness, and more.

Looking Good The skin around the eyes is extremely sensitive and delicate. That’s why you need an eye cream that’s formulated with gentle plant proteins to brighten, tighten, and rejuvenate your lids and the area under the eyes. Hyaluronic acid also draws moisture to the skin and plumps the skin, reducing lines and wrinkles.

Praise YouthA facial cream that uses neuropeptides to promote five cellular growth factors. Fine lines and wrinkles disappear as the skin begins to tighten.

Which Products Are Good before Laser Treatment?

While all of our products can be used prior to laser skin rejuvenation and other treatments, there are certain ones our professional laser techs may recommend depending on the specific treatment, the types of skin, and the amount of time before the treatment is scheduled.

We recommend avoiding tanning or excessive exposure to the sunlight for several weeks prior to a laser skin treatment. Using a moisturizing sunscreen product, like Get Shady Light or Get Shady Medium, can help you avoid sun damage without looking pale. Cover Up is also an outstanding option for comprehensive skin protection.

You’ll want to keep your skin moisturized and hydrated, so drink a lot of water and moisturize in the morning, evening, and after washing your face or skin. Use moisturizers that promote cellular health and skin tightening with peptides and collagen.

Which Products Are Good after Laser Treatment

Because laser treatment involves the controlled destruction of some of the skin’s cells to promote healthy cellular regrowth, it’s essential that you use products that aid in the process and protect your skin against further destruction from the sun. The following skin regimen will assist you in healing and shielding your skin from the harmful effects of the sun:

  1. Cleanse with gentle soap and water or a gentle non-soap cleanser that promotes skin health. If you do use soap, rinse thoroughly.
  2. Moisturize with peptide-based moisture cream and then apply a hydrating toner with CoQ10. Moisturize throughout the day.
  3. Apply a tinted or non-tinted sunscreen to exposed skin. Make sure that the sunscreen you’re using has an SPF rating of 30 or higher.
  4. Wear UV-rated sunglasses when going outside to further protect the area around your eyes. You can also wear a brimmed hat to protect your face and scalp.

You may have to repeat steps two and three throughout the day, particularly if you plan to be outside a lot.

Why Pre/Post Skin Care is Important

Many people enjoy having tan skin, but the sun contains harmful UVA and UVB rays, which cause skin damage. Additionally, the cosmetics and other products you may put on your skin can also have a deleterious effect.

While laser skin care treatments can mitigate a great deal of this destruction, they cannot stay ahead of poor skin care routines. If you want your laser skin rejuvenation to have a lasting effect, you need to establish proper protocols. Even with proper skin care after laser treatment, your skin may require periodic maintenance, which is why Body Details offers free touchups for many of our procedures. See written terms and conditions of the free lifetime guarantee for details.
