Once you’ve gone through the full course of treatment, it’s important
to protect your skin from the sun and keep it healthy to prolong your
results. If not, you are just damaging your skin again. Original article on NewBeauty.com.
1. Stay Out of the Sun: “The best way to maintain
your results is to stay out of the sun and wear sunblock daily,” says
Boca Raton, FL, dermatologist Dr. Allison Schwedelson.
2. Take Care of Your Skin: Now that your skin is
healthy, you want to keep it that way. Sunscreen, antioxidants and a
moisturizer are essential. Antioxidants repair damage and protect skin
to prevent future damage. Moisturizers keep skin hydrated.
3. Use a Retinol Regularly: Over-the-counter and
prescription-strength retinoids reinforce laser results by keeping the
skin in repair mode, creating new collagen and exfoliating the surface.
4. Interval Treatments: Nothing lasts forever—not
even the results of a laser. Re-treatments every now and then will help
maintain the longevity of your results for healthier skin.
