Pre/Post Procedure Care
Many people use physician prescribed medications and cosmetic procedures to correct their more serious skin care problems. Prescription retinoids (Retin-A, Renova, Differin, and Tazorac) are regularly used to treat acne and photoaging. Cosmetic procedures including microdermabrasion, laser and superficial chemical peels (lunchtime peels) are increasingly being used to provide softer, smoother, firmer skin to fight photoaging, and clinically to help reverse acne scarring and pigmentation irregularities. In order to maximize benefits to any professional cosmetic program, a safe and effective skin care regimen should be used at home.
