Have you ever wondered why your dermal technician prescribed you skincare products after having a skin treatment? These post-treatment products are more than just an add-on – they’re actually a crucial part of the process.

In-clinic skin treatments, whether it’s microdermabrasion, chemical peels, or laser therapy, can work wonders for the skin, triggering specific reactions within the skin that lead to desired outcomes. But here’s the thing: these treatments are just the first step of the process!

At-home skincare plays a pivotal role in maintaining the improvements achieved during treatments. Being consistent in the use of our expertly prescribed products post-treatment, helps reinforce and prolong the effects, ensuring that the skin continues to progress towards its optimal state.

How Do Products Improve My Treatment Results?

It all comes down to the ingredients. Ingredients such as Hyaluronic acid, Retinoids, and antioxidants are used in the skincare products we recommend at SILK Laser Clinics. These ingredients are known in promoting cellular turnover, collagen synthesis, and hydration, all aimed at ensuring long-lasting results.

Post-Treatment Essentials

Let’s break down some key treatments and the products we recommend that complement them.

  • MediPeels: After any of our MediPeels it is common to experience mild-moderate redness and flaking. This is due to the superficial layers of the skin being gently exfoliated, revealing fresh, rejuvenated skin underneath.  To help while the skin is lightly shedding, apply our Aesthetics RX H20 Lipid Balm to heal and regenerate.

  • Microneedling: SILK Hyaluronic Serum is a must have after microneedling. After a treatment, it’s normal for the skin to feel tight and dry, it almost has a sunburnt feeling to it. Our Hyaluronic acid draws and locks moisture in the skin helping to alleviate any discomfort. Microneedling works by triggering a wound-healing response within the skin. This serum aids with surface repair, helping your downtime and recovery.

  • Microdermabrasion: Similar to our MediPeels, our microdermabrasion is also a form of exfoliation. However, instead of being a chemical exfoliation, it’s mechanical. Mild to moderate erythema and flaking can occur after, therefore, our Aesthetics H20 Lipid Balm comes to the rescue again, restoring moisture and preventing dryness.  

  • Laser hair removal: Our Pre + Post care packs have been specifically created by our team to help prepare and soothe the skin – maximising your results!

Don’t forget, alongside these key products we always recommend a good cleanser, serums that have active ingredients (see our favourite Aesthetics Rx serums: Vitamin A, Vitamin B and Vitamin C to learn more) and an exfoliator to benefit the overall health of your skin. And always use a SPF daily, whether undergoing in-clinic treatments or not, as it will protect the skin and prevent future damage.
