Skin Resurfacing Aftercare Tips

Jan 18, 2024 | Resurfacing Aftercare


Skin resurfacing can rejuvenate your complexion and give your skin a youthful softness and radiance. Treatments such as the Photofacial can help heal sun-damaged skin, mitigate enlarged pores or freckles, and can even help with rosacea!

Skin resurfacing treatments do require you to baby your skin a little after you leave your appointment. Follow your med spa professional’s instructions for aftercare, try out these tips, and enjoy the gorgeous results.

Skin Resurfacing Aftercare Tips

The most important tip is to follow your aesthetician’s instructions at the time of your treatment. They’ll let you know what basic but vital steps you need to follow for the best outcome. In addition to what your aesthetician says, try these tips:

  • Invest in a good sensitive-skin sunscreen. Ask your med spa professional for guidance about using your current sunscreen or a different one throughout the healing process. Because sunlight can delay the healing process, do your best to avoid long exposures to direct sunlight if you can. When you must go out, use plenty of sunscreen.
  • Schedule a day off and pamper yourself. Skin resurfacing is non-invasive, and you can get back to your usual schedule right away. However, a day resting and staying away from outdoor pollution or sand particles is a fantastic way to ensure great results!
  • Cleanse your face as directed. Keeping your face clean can promote good healing. Follow your med spa technician’s orders on what to wash with and how often.
  • Hydrate your face and yourself. It’s vital to keep your skin hydrated after your skin resurfacing treatment. Use the product your technician recommends, as some active ingredients can have adverse effects. Also, drink plenty of water to hydrate your skin from the inside!
  • Keep it cool. Avoid exposing your skin to hot temperatures after your treatment. Skip the sauna or hot tub, keep your showers lukewarm, and use cool compresses to the treated area.
  • Let your natural beauty show! It’s best to stay makeup-free a few days after your treatment. If you must wear cosmetics, try to keep them light!
