While in-clinic medical aesthetic treatments such as dermal fillers, chemical peels or Botox®, can certainly help you achieve the look you want – the best way to get beautiful, balanced, glowing and healthy-looking skin throughout the year is by combining those medical skin and aesthetic treatments with an at-home skincare routine.
Why it makes sense to combine a skincare routine with your aesthetic treatments
You may not get the best results after getting anti-wrinkle treatment done unless you’re going to use the right moisturiser at home, for example, or if you’re going to stay under the sun all day without the right SPF sunscreen protection.
Furthermore, by adhering to a proper skincare routine, you can easily enhance the effects of any medical or cosmetic treatments you get done at your local Edinburgh aesthetic treatment clinic. It’s an easy way to improve and enhance the effects of the treatment and keep your skin looking beautiful and healthy all year round.
Here are just a few reasons why you need to combine an at-home skincare routine with your medical skin treatments and/or medical aesthetic treatments:
Keeps your skin in great shape
When exposed to dust, dirt, moisture and sunlight, your skin sheds dead cells. This natural wear-and-tear causes premature ageing and can even accelerate acne flare-ups.
When you actively follow a skincare routine at home – e.g. through consistent cleansing, moisturising and exfoliation and using the right sun protection – you can easily reduce acne breakouts, keep your skin healthy so that it ages gracefully, and even prevent serious conditions like skin cancer.
Makes medical aesthetic treatments in Edinburgh last longer
Many cosmetic treatments are temporary – it’s no secret, after all – such as Botox®, for instance. They’re great for hiding wrinkles, sure, but the results tend to last from a few months up to two years at best, depending on the quality of the product.
However, by keeping your skin properly hydrated, protecting it against UV damage, and applying products rich with antioxidants and collagen-stimulating agents, you can delay the effects of ageing, undo existing skin damage, and as a result, improve the effectiveness and duration of your in-clinic aesthetic treatments.
Better mental health
Did you know that combining an active skincare routine at home with your cosmetic treatments can actually contribute to improved mental health?
Having a proper skincare routine before and after your medical skin treatments or aesthetic treatments can emotionally put you at ease and even give you a much better sense of control. You’re going to undeniably feel happier and more confident, knowing that your skin glows, looks clear and remains unblemished throughout the year.
Seeing your skin exactly the way you want can have a very uplifting effect on your mood and even your emotional wellbeing. It also creates a more positive self-image, thus, improving your mood and lifting your spirits.
