Preparing for your laser skin treatment

Laser treatments are a safe and effective way to rejuvenate the skin by resolving issues such as fine lines and wrinkles, uneven tone, sun damage, and acne scars. First, you should consult a dermatologist to determine which treatment is best for you.

Preparing For Laser Skin Treatment in Encinitas CA Area

Here are some steps for you to prepare for your laser session:

  • Discuss your aesthetic goals with the provider – The doctor will examine your skin and identify the areas that need treatment. You will be asked about your goals and desires for the therapy.
  • Review your medical history – Discussing any medical issues that you currently have is an important part of your consultation. Tell your doctor about the medications, supplements, or other skin preparations you are presently using and whether you are prone to allergies, cold sores, etc.
  • Quit smoking – Smoking delays healing by constricting blood vessels and inhibiting blood flow. Cigarettes also contribute to wrinkle formation.
  • Care for your skin – Follow the skincare routine recommended by your doctor before and after the procedure. Use the correct products and avoid sun exposure.
