A facial treatment is not just a one-time visit; it’s an investment in your appearance, which is why aftercare is so important. At Aesthetic Skin Clinic, we want to help you make the most of that investment by providing detailed information on how to maximise and maintain the results of your facial treatment.

So, in this blog, our experts guide you through the steps involved in this process, from establishing a consistent skincare routine to considering follow-up treatments. Our goal is to ensure you have all the knowledge and tools necessary to preserve your rejuvenated and youthful appearance.

Establishing a Consistent Skincare Routine

After your facial treatment, switching up your skincare routine is vital to help maintain and enhance the results. We know the world of skincare can be overwhelming, so we want to simplify the process for you.

  • Cleanse your face twice daily with a gentle cleanser to remove oil, dirt, and makeup. Use lukewarm water to avoid any potential damage to your skin, and always pat dry with a clean towel.
  • Hydration is the key to healthy and glowing skin. So, choose a moisturiser suited to your skin type and apply it daily to keep your skin smooth, supple, and well-nourished.
  • Sun protection is crucial to maintain the results of your facial treatment. Apply a broad-spectrum sunscreen with at least SPF 30 every morning, even on cloudy days. Reapply every two hours when exposed to the sun for prolonged periods.

If you stick to an established skincare routine tailored to you and the facial treatment you’ve undergone, you’re much more likely to maintain your results.

As mentioned above, keeping your skin hydrated is essential for maintaining the results of your facial treatment. Proper hydration not only helps to hold onto the benefits but also promotes overall skin health.

We recommend treating yourself to hydrating masks once a week as they provide a burst of nourishment and moisture, leaving your skin feeling refreshed and revitalised. Alongside this, consider enhancing your skincare routine with serums. Serums contain powerful ingredients that penetrate deep into your skin, boosting hydration, brightness, and overall skin health.

For example, our Swisscode Serums, specifically the Pure Serum, combine pure, active ingredients to restore moisture, create a radiant glow, and combat signs of ageing. With concentrations such as Hyaluron, Kiribirth, Vitamin F Forte, and Genistein, this range targets various skin concerns effectively and is perfect for those wanting to maximise their facial treatment results.

Keeping Your Skin Protected

Your skin is constantly exposed to various environmental stressors that can undo the benefits of your facial treatment. Therefore, it’s crucial to adopt protective measures to preserve the rejuvenation and youthfulness of your skin.

For instance, including antioxidant-rich products in your skincare regimen protects against free radicals, which can damage the skin and contribute to premature ageing. Antioxidants also supply nourishment and help restore your skin’s natural defences.

Another important factor to remember after a facial treatment is to avoid touching your face. We understand the temptation to touch your beautifully rejuvenated skin, but resisting the urge is essential. Touching your face throughout the day can transfer dirt, oils, and bacteria, leading to breakouts and irritation. Let your skin breathe and maintain its pristine condition.

Protecting Your Investment

Regardless of the price you paid, your facial treatment was a significant investment for your health and appearance. So, to ensure that you continue to enjoy long-lasting results, here are some essential practices to keep in mind.

  • Stay Consistent. As mentioned, consistency is key for maintaining the results of your facial treatment. Stick to your skincare routine diligently and avoid skipping steps. The effort you put into caring for your skin will be reflected in its appearance.
  • Avoid Sun Damage. Sun damage can counteract the benefits of a facial treatment by causing premature ageing, hyperpigmentation, and inflammation. Protecting the skin from the sun’s harmful UV rays helps maintain the desired results of the treatment and promotes overall skin health.
  • Avoid Harmful Habits. Certain habits can undermine the results of your facial treatment, such as smoking, alcohol consumption, and poor diet. Adjust your lifestyle habits, and your glowing skin will thank you.
  • Consider Follow-Up Treatments. Regular follow-up treatments can complement the results of your facial treatment and further enhance your appearance. Consulting with our expert dermatologists will allow you to tailor a treatment plan according to your unique needs.

There are many different types of facial treatments, but maximising and maintaining the results requires dedication and a consistent skincare routine. By following the guidance provided in this blog, you can ensure that your investment in your appearance continues to shine through. Remember to stay hydrated, protect your skin from environmental stressors, and consider follow-up treatments to further enhance your results.
