Make Sure to Pamper Your Skin After Your Laser Procedure

They can also be used in cosmetic procedures, and although there are so many benefits to having a laser procedure over other procedures, the laser can leave your skin just a bit uncomfortable. Here are some ways to pamper your skin after a laser procedure!

What are lasers used for cosmetically?

Lasers can be used to remove unwanted hair (without the annoyance, hassle, and expense of shaving or waxing), remove unwanted tattoos, and they can even help to give you younger-, smoother-looking skin.

In laser skin rejuvenation, the laser goes deep into the layers of the skin to stimulate the production of collagen (an important protein for beautiful skin) and the generation of new skin cells. It is used to reduce lines and wrinkles, tighten loose skin on the face and neck, and to give skin a refreshed, new look.

Laser treatments are popular because they are noninvasive, safe, and effective. Although it may take more than one treatment to see the results you want, these treatments are done on an outpatient basis and can be done in a short amount of time – just a few minutes or a couple of hours, depending on what you need to have done.

What happens after a laser treatment?

Your skin may be a bit uncomfortable, sensitive, and easily irritated after a laser treatment. You should stay out of the sun, and wear sunscreen if you do have to go outside. Avoid any exfoliants and harsh cleansers that might irritate the skin. Aloe vera can help to reduce inflammation and keep the skin moisturized, which will reduce irritation.

A little bit of pampering is always a good idea, but you should always take extra special care of your skin after any treatment! Whether you need a tattoo or unwanted hair removed or you would like to give your skin a younger, refreshed look, the Weinstein Plastic Surgery Center can help, with a laser treatment!

Are you considering a buttock lift? Here’s what you need to know!

Is a buttock and outer-thigh lift right for you?

The ideal candidates for this procedure are those who have excess skin and tissue on the thighs and buttocks. You should be in good overall health, a nonsmoker, and you should not be significantly overweight. And, as with any cosmetic procedure, you should have realistic expectations about the outcome of your surgery.

What happens during a buttock and outer-thigh lift?

It is a sad fact of life that as we age, our bodies change. Our buttocks and thighs can start to look saggy, or your buttocks may start to look flat. A buttock and outer-thigh lift can help, by improving the shape and size of the buttocks and thighs and making them look toned and contoured.

These are actually two separate procedures, but they are often performed at the same time because issues with the buttocks and the thighs often overlap (of course, your doctor will discuss your options with you, which will depend on the results you’d like to see). This procedure is done on an outpatient basis under general anesthesia.

What happens after the procedure?

You may feel bruised, swollen, and sore for up to a month after the procedure. You may be given prescription medication to control any pain. Most patients will go back to work and regular activities about 2 weeks after the surgery, although strenuous activity should be avoided for at least a month. You may be advised to wear compression garments to help with any swelling and to help you heal. The results of your procedure will last for years, unless you have a significant weight gain or loss.

A buttock and outer-thigh lift procedure can help to give you the toned and contoured figure you want! If you would like a consultation to see if this procedure might be right for you, contact the Weinstein Plastic Surgery Center! Call the office in Chester, New Jersey, at (908) 879-2222 today!
