Why You Shouldn’t Neglect Your Skincare After Injectable Treatments
We cannot emphasize enough the importance of not skimping on your skincare after having an injectable treatment – yes, you might have the most gorgeous, glowing skin afterwards but why stop there?
Why patients with injections skimp on skincare
After injectables, the skin will look amazing, therefore patients feel they don’t feel the need to invest their time in a skincare regime. Skincare products can take weeks or months to make a significant difference therefore, injectables may seem like a shortcut. However, you’re making a mistake if you don’t support them with skincare.
How skincare can support injectable results
At VIVA Skin Clinics, we strongly believe that injections and skincare go hand in hand because their results depend on one another. Injectables work best when designed for your specific skin type and concerns.
Skincare products can help enhance and prolong the results of your injectables, therefore you can keep that glowing, healthy skin for longer! Other healthy ways to support better results are to drink plenty of water to stay hydrated and keep your skin topped up with SPF.
Many skincare products created for post-injectables often use ingredients like hyaluronic acid to restore the skin surface and encourage the production of essential components to create glowing, healthy skin. The following skincare products (which are favourites of ours) are created to work with your injectables:
The Obagi Daily Hydro-Drops
This serum is what we like to call a glow in a bottle! The Hydro-Drops instantly transform dull and tired skin into hydration heaven. This serum is infused with Abyssinian and Hibiscus oils, two ingredients which are rich in antioxidants and support the skin’s natural protective barrier. The serum also contains Vitamin B3, one of the 8 essential B vitamins which prevent moisture loss and helps the skin to hold on to hydration.
After regular use, your skin will look radiant, smooth and youthful. Fine lines and wrinkles are also softened – bonus point!
Obagi Hydrate Luxe
This non-comedogenic moisturiser provides overnight, ultra-rich moisturisation and has a luxurious, balm-like texture. It provides essential moisturisation and rejuvenation, especially for extremely dry skin.
