Committing to a laser treatment doesn’t just end after your last treatment. In order to maintain the desired results from your treatments it’s important to follow these rules;
1.Take Charge of Your Home Care Routine: Skincare at home is essential in keeping your skin healthy. Cleansing, exfoliating, proper layering, and protection is key!
2.Stay Out of the Sun: Just minutes of unprotected sun exposure can cause post treatment hyperpigmentation. Colorescience Pro Sunforgettable SPF creates immediate protection between you and harmful UV rays.
3.Regularly Use Retinol: Working to exfoliate the skin and keep your cell turnover moving, retinoids are a fundamental part of any anti-aging skincare routine.
4.Re-Treat: Laser and Peel results won’t last forever, combining chemical peel and laser treatments back to back can be helpful in prepping the skin and maximizing results. Stay motivated with regular facials and contact Skin Resolutions in downtown Santa Barbara for helpful treatment recommendations. 805-569-1923
Here’s a sneak peak of the newest concoction from PhytoCeuticals, the Selenium in C Serum. Selenium, an essential trace element, has shown to have strong anti-cancer effects, related to its role in antioxidant enzymes. In other words, ultraviolet (UV) radiation causes oxidative damage to skin cells, which can cause skin cancer, alter the behavior of skin cancer (typically making the cancer more aggressive), and cause photoaging.
The combination of Selenium, L-Absorbic Acid (Vitamin C), Retinol (Vitamin A), and Alphatocopherol (Vitamin E), provides extraordinary antioxidant protection and protects against UV damage. It shields cells and tissues from oxidation, promotes DNA repair, prevents skin cell mutation, and aids in reducing the risk of skin cancer. Another bonus is that it facilitates collagen production and improves signs of photoaging.
If those weren’t reasons enough to cheer for this product, it was recently awarded by the National Cancer Institute for prevention of UV-induced skin cancer and photo-damage!
