After Your Skincare Treatment: Important Aftercare Instructions

The care you give your skin after any skincare treatment is important for getting successful results that last. Whether you are getting a facial, chemical peel, microdermabrasion, or microneedling, following aftercare instructions to the letter is necessary to finish the process with healthy, fresh, youthful skin that looks and feels great for weeks or months. While aftercare instructions vary depending on the skincare treatment you have received, there are a few things that hold true with all of these skincare treatments.

Wear Sunscreen

It is vital that you wear sunscreen every day. You should be doing this anyway, but if you are not, you will need to make sure that you do after skincare treatments. These skincare treatments both stimulate new skin growth and expose newer layers of skin. In both cases, you will need to protect this fresh new skin from the sun’s damaging rays.

Keep It Clean

You want to avoid harsh exfoliants for the first few days after a skincare treatment, but you still need to make sure that you keep the area clean. Using a mild cleanser a few times a day is necessary to keep the skin clean and free from bacteria that could cause infection as the skin peels or is renewed from the treatment.

Keep It Moisturized

You will also need to get a good moisturizer that you can use a couple of times per day so that you will be able to keep your skin moisturized. Skincare treatments dry out the skin considerably, and a good moisturizer will go a long way toward keeping your skin looking plump and fresh.

Follow All Instructions

Depending on your skincare treatment, your aesthetician will have specific aftercare instructions for you. For example, after some peels you cannot wash your face for 24 hours or it risks reactivating the chemicals. Make sure you follow all aftercare instructions, and if there is something that you don’t understand, be sure to ask questions for clarification.
