Pre and Post Invasive Skin Treatments

Pre and Post Invasive Skin Treatments

Here at Vanessa Megan, we believe in the power of nature. Through natural ingredients, products and transformative facials, you can achieve natural, dermal radiance without disrupting your precious skin barriers.

Invasive treatments can be harmful to the skins natural barrier, irritate the skin and cause skin damage long term if not done correctly. However, many people choose to get treatments, such as chemical peels, micro-needling, and laser resurfacing, to address specific concerns. Ensuring a speedy recovery, proper pre and post-care is essential for healthy skin.

Preparing Your Skin for Success

  1. Consultation with a Professional: Before undergoing any invasive treatment, schedule a consultation with a qualified skincare professional. Discuss your skin concerns, medical history, and expectations to determine the most suitable treatment for your needs.

  2. Follow Pre-Treatment Guidelines: Your skincare specialist will provide specific pre-treatment instructions tailored to your procedure. This may include avoiding certain skincare products, medications, or sun exposure to ensure your skin is in optimal condition for the treatment.

  3. Hydration is Key: Prior to your procedure, keep your skin well-hydrated by drinking plenty of water and using a gentle, hydrating skincare routine. Moisturised skin is better equipped to recover from invasive treatments.

  4. Avoid Sun Exposure: Sun-damaged skin can be more prone to complications during and after invasive treatments. Limit sun exposure and apply a broad-spectrum sunscreen daily to protect your skin.

Nurturing Your Skin's Recovery

  1. Follow Post-Treatment Instructions: After your invasive treatment, adhere to the post-treatment guidelines provided by your skincare professional. This may involve avoiding direct sunlight, exfoliants, or other irritants for a specific period.

  2. Gentle Cleansing: Use a gentle, non-abrasive cleanser to cleanse your skin twice a day. Avoid scrubbing or harsh cleansers, as your skin will be sensitive during the recovery period.

  3. Moisturise Liberally: Keep your skin hydrated with a nourishing, post-treatment moisturiser. Hydration aids in the healing process and promotes healthy skin recovery.

  4. Sun Protection is Non-Negotiable: Shield your skin from harmful UV rays by wearing a broad-spectrum sunscreen with at least SPF 30. Sunscreen is crucial in protecting your newly treated skin from sun damage.

  5. Avoid Touching or Picking: As your skin heals, avoid touching, picking, or scratching the treated area. This can lead to infection, scarring, or delayed healing.

  6. Patience is Key: Allow your skin ample time to heal and recover. Each person's healing process is unique, so be patient and avoid rushing into additional treatments until your skincare specialist gives the green light.
