Boost your laser skin rejuvenation results
If you’re starting to notice early signs of aging, you may benefit from laser skin rejuvenation. It’s a treatment that diminishes the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, tightens skin and stimulates collagen production, evens out your skin tone, fades superficial scars, and even reverses the effects of sun damage.
Wrinkles caused by aging and long-term sun exposure tend to respond extremely well to laser skin rejuvenation. You may see some improvement in wrinkles caused by repeated movement, but the procedure can’t eliminate them. Laser skin rejuvenation has also proven less effective on severe acne scars. That said, laser skin rejuvenation can significantly improve mild or moderate acne scars.
Diet and skincare changes to make after treatment
If you want your results to last, then you need to follow a specific diet and skincare regimen. In terms of skincare, this means you should:
Cleanse your skin in the morning and evening
This is because, in the morning, you have oil and dust on your face from sleeping, and in the evening, you have to wash off sunscreen, makeup, dirt, and pollen. You should use a gentle cleanser that’s designed for your skin type, and you should go easy on your skin. When it comes to exfoliation, you only need to exfoliate two to three times a week using a fine scrub. You’ll want to avoid scrubs that contain large beads with irregular shapes; these can irritate your skin.
Use retinoids on a regular basis
Retinoids, which are made from vitamin A, are essential to protect against premature aging. You can purchase skincare products that contain retinol without a prescription. However, you’ll need a prescription for tretinoin. Retinoids stimulate your skin to make more collagen and exfoliate the skin. This increases elasticity and removes dead skin cells.
Moisturize your face morning and night
This will help to lock in moisture, especially a cream-based moisturizer. Your skin will become soft and smooth.
Wear sunblock every single day
You should choose a sunblock that contains at least 30 SPF and contains zinc oxide or titanium dioxide to screen out the sun’s rays.
Refrain from tanning
Tanning, whether in the sun or in a tanning bed, exposes you to radiation, which causes cancer and accelerates the aging process. Use a self-tanner instead.
This is because people who smoke get wrinkles sooner than nonsmokers. The physical act of smoking also contributes to wrinkles due to the repetitive movements of sucking a cigarette and puckering.
Eat your way to a glowing complexion
Following a skincare routine is half the battle. The other half is changing your diet. To prevent premature aging, you should eat more:
They’re rich in the nutrient lycopene, as are watermelon, grapefruit, guava, asparagus, and red cabbage.
It contains high amounts of omega-3 fats that fight inflammation. Tuna is another good option.
It’s high in vitamins A and C, which reduce inflammation. Broccoli, spinach, arugula, watercress, escarole, and endive also reduce inflammation.
Lentils and beans
These foods are amazing sources of protein as well as fiber and other nutrients. Black beans, split peas, lima beans, pinto beans, chickpeas, and cannellini beans are all great choices.
Whole grains help curb inflammation, and they’re rich in B vitamins. Good choices include whole wheat bread, brown rice, and quinoa.
They’re rich in vitamins C and E that prevent or minimize damage to your cells.
Yogurt contains lots of calcium and vitamin D as well as protein. Your skin craves these nutrients that slow down the aging process.
Nuts such as almonds, cashews, peanuts, and pecans all contain omega-3s, fiber, and protein that help reduce inflammation and protect the skin.
These contain healthy fats that help your skin stay hydrated.
They’re a rich source of vitamin C that helps stimulate collagen protection.
These contain vitamin A that helps protect against sun damage.
When it comes to flawless skin, these foods bite
Foods that will hurt your chances for best laser skin rejuvenation results include:
Potato chips and French fries
Deep fried foods increase inflammation throughout the body. Deep fried foods also contain trans fats, which raise bad cholesterol. Avoid foods containing hydrogenated oils and vegetable shortening.
Doughnuts and other pastries
These are loaded with sugar, which may contribute to the development of fine lines and wrinkles.
These are high in saturated fats. If you want to eat meat, then choose meats that are lean, such as ground beef, turkey breast, and chicken breast.
These foods are high in saturated fats and contain nitrates, which lead to inflammation.
Heavy drinking speeds up the aging process.
Laser skin rejuvenation’s results will have you beaming
You’re an ideal candidate for laser skin rejuvenation if you have acne scars, uneven skin pigmentation, fine lines, and wrinkles, and your skin is fair. Laser skin rejuvenation might not be right for you if you have active acne, very dark skin, oily skin, and excessively saggy skin.
