How To Prevent Skin Problems With Cosmetic Procedures

Posted in Beauti-Med Tips

Prevention as a general measure is useful in two ways: first, it’s a good idea to keep something in good shape rather than letting issues arise and fixing it afterwards; second, there will be no transition period between a state where the problems are apparent and when the issue has been corrected. Even though the results of cosmetic procedures can be quite subtle, there is still a difference between the before and after. Ideally, everyone would like to have beautiful looking skin throughout the year, so let’s see which procedures are also useful in both the cosmetic and the preventative sense.

Laser Hair Removal


This popular procedure is known to help even the deepest, most obvious of wrinkles, and here’s the reasoning behind using it to stop muscles from developing:

  • Wrinkles on the face are generally formed by muscle use
  • Botox prevents the muscles from being activated as much
  • The wrinkles that would be there have been softened

Your medical professional will administer preventative Botox differently than corrective Botox, although they will still be targeting the areas most vulnerable to the development of wrinkles.

Acne Blue Light Therapy

It’s important to remember that acne leaves pigmentation and other forms of scarring on the skin. Of course, there are ways to treat acne scarring, but prevention is the best medicine, so it’s important to keep breakouts under control. Blue light therapy in itself works by targeting beneath the surface of the skin to stop the cycle of acne, and it’s unique for being a gentle treatment option, compared to some of the more severe alternatives available. A great way to keep acne under control and acne scarring from becoming a problem.

Laser Hair Removal

Temporary hair removal treatments often suffer from similar issues:

  • Hair regrowth occurs quickly
  • Possibility of ingrown hairs
  • Irritation on the skin from hair removal

Shaving, waxing, and chemical removal are prone to these issues. Unfortunately, ingrown hairs come with their own set of problems, such as:

  • Scarring
  • Tendency to become ingrown again
  • Source of infection

Laser hair removal is incredibly effective for preventing and treating such issues, especially for people with a certain type of hair that’s vulnerable to being ingrown.

Everyone’s body is unique and requires a different regimen for upkeep, but realizing that prevention is the key will help stifle concerns at the source. Talk to one of our specialists to learn more about what you can control hair growth today.
