After-Care Guide To Our Top Skin Care Treatments
Keeping up with an exercise routine is a practice everyone should have. Whether it’s doing yoga, playing ball with the kids, or taking a light jog around the neighborhood, the physical, mental and—especially—skin longevity benefits are insurmountable. Many of the patients that come through our office wonder if and when they will be able to hit the gym again after receiving our treatments. The answer? It depends. Read on to learn more about after-care for our top skin care treatments.
A smooth, wrinkle-free complexion is entirely possible with Botox® but it does involve downtime when it comes to working out. Skip Pilates, yoga, running and even light muscle workouts directly following treatment. We recommend sitting upright for at least four hours post-treatment and be sure to skip cocktails, aspirin and blood thinners for at least 24 hours prior to the treatment and six after.
Facial fillers such as Juvederm restore volume and correct unwanted facial wrinkles, hollow skin under the eyes, dark circles, scars and sagging skin. After filler treatments you may experience some minor swelling and bruising from the injection. We recommend avoiding exercise for six hours and refraining from touching the area of treatment.
Customizable skin peels are perfect for smoothing and brightening skin at any age. Wash off the chemical peel solution before hitting the gym and be cautious of how much you sweat following a chemical peel. Your freshly peeled skin will not react well to waterfalls of salty sweat getting into your pores.
SilkPeel Dermalinfusion is a three-in-one treatment designed to exfoliate, extract and infuse, creating a radiant glow. A breakthrough treatment for all ages, SilkPeels require no recovery time. So, get right back to work at your TRX or acroyoga classes, because this treatment will even prevent your pores from clogging while you sweat.
As always, after you are able to jump back into your outdoor exercise routines, remember to apply SPF as your skin will be particularly sensitive to the sun. We recommend Colorescience®’s Sunforgettable.
