How to take care of the skin after an aesthetic treatment?

Summer is a delicate moment for the skin, always due to the intensity of the sun. But, the skins subjected to medicine-aesthetic treatments can still suffer more.

With the help of pharmacist Rocío Escalante, owner of Arbosana Farmacia, and Dr. Gema Pérez Sevilla, maxillofacial and aesthetic medicine surgeon, we discovered which products to use after an aesthetic treatment to enhance its results and protect the skin from potential side effects.


One of the most important care that the skin needs after any aesthetic treatment is sun protection. According to the pharmacist Rocío Escalante, "the skin is more exposed to damage from the sun's rays after peelings, laser treatments (hair removal, and other treatments to eliminate spots, acne marks, wrinkles, etc.) and filled with hyaluronic acid, botox (especially in the days after treatment, if bruises have remained). Some body treatments such as carboxytherapy or body mesotherapy can leave small bruises that should also be protected from the sun. That is why it is necessary to use high and broad-spectrum sun protection, and be very constant in its reapplication”.

If what we want is to enhance the effects of the treatments, some creams can help you. For example, in the case of having undergone a treatment with botulinum toxin (Botox), Dr. Gema Pérez Sevilla recommends using "creams that contain relaxing peptides such as Palmitol tripeptide 5 (inhibits neuromuscular transmission) or creams with retinol (stimulates the production of collagen, elastin and extracellular matrix and improves spots by limiting the proliferation and movement of altered melanocytes). If you have undergone a treatment with hyaluronic acid, Dr. Pérez Sevilla recommends including the following active ingredients in your care routine: "DMAE, firming and antioxidant, glycolic, which favors the penetration of active ingredients and the formation of collagen, hyaluronic acid of different molecular weights, which hydrates, provides elasticity and firmness to the skin and has an anti-wrinkle effect, gotu kola, which promotes hydration, blood circulation and collagen production, organic silicon, which protects collagen, elastin and proteoglycans from degradation or vitamin C, antioxidant”.

After a peeling, in addition to sun protection, Rocío Escalante, owner of Arbosana Farmacia, recommends incorporating creams and serums with “depigmenting active ingredients to avoid spots, which the sun can cause on this skin after peeling, in the skin care routine. peeling is much more sensitive.
