Tip Chapter: How Might Cosmeuticals Improve Skin Aesthetic Procedures Outcome?
- 12 Downloads
The approach to treat photoaging, acne, pigmentary disorders, and other skin cosmetic complaints has expanded beyond a one-stage treatment to now include combined dermatological procedures. And both preparatory cosmetic therapy and posttreatment cosmeceutical therapy are fundamental to improving and maintaining results, preventing further skin damage, and avoiding unaesthetic outcome.
A validated method of skin type diagnosis sets the stage for physicians to systematically track efficacy and address complications arising from skin care recommendations, including topical prescription medications.
This chapter will help classify skin type and match the proper skin care to use before and after dermatological procedures to achieve the highest outcomes.
