If you and your medical or skin care professional determine that a laser treatment is the correct choice for your skin to lessen the appearance of damaged or aging skin, it is important to prepare the skin in advance of the treatment. If possible, begin a skin health regimen four weeks before a laser treatment to ensure the best possible outcome while minimizing any negative side effects. This preparation will speed healing time as it reduces or eliminates inflammation in the area treated, returning the skin to a state of health.
NeoGenesis recommends the use of Recovery, our most powerful treatment serum abundant in S²RM®, once or twice daily after cleansing for four weeks prior to a laser. After cleansing with the NeoGenesis Cleanser, apply Recovery all over the face and neck, including the eye area and around and on the lips. Recovery may be very helpful if you are prone to Herpes Simplex outbreaks. For the more dry skin types, application of Skin Serum after Recovery, followed by our Intensive Moisturizer or Barrier Renewal Cream, will keep the skin hydrated and the barrier improved for proper skin function. This protocol will naturally heal and nourish the skin in preparation of the laser treatment.
Laser procedures results will be enhanced from the post treatment application of NeoGenesis Recovery. If the recommended pre-laser protocol has been used, continue throughout the healing process. If beginning NeoGenesis products post-laser, Recovery, used twice daily after cleansing the skin with our Cleanser, will reduce redness and irritation, enhance the effects of the procedure, and reduce the downtime. To combat the initial dryness associated with a laser treatment, apply Skin Serum following Recovery twice daily. Follow the serums with our Intensive Moisturizer or Barrier Renewal Cream, applied twice daily or as needed to hydrate the skin and provide proper barrier function. The Moisturizing Mist may be used throughout the day on the treated area, anytime the skin feels irritated and tight. The use of chemical free sunscreen is extremely important to further protect the skin.
