An introduction to our expert

Dr Haus is the founder of Dr Haus Dermatology, Harley Street, where he integrates SkinCeuticals products into his clients’ homecare regimes. Dr Haus is at the forefront of new treatments and regularly attends major conferences with fellow dermatologists. In addition to his private clinic on Harley Street, Dr Haus works as an NHS Dermatologist where he specialises in acne, psoriasis and skin cancers.

 

Why is aftercare important after a procedure such as laser?

“The homecare regime you use both before and after a treatment is crucial,” explains Dr Haus. “When a patient uses the best formulations with good active ingredients, we notice a better outcome, better recovery and down time. After laser particularly, there will be a lot of heat in the skin, so we need to ensure that the post-care regime minimises this and brings down the temperature of the skin to reduce discomfort, peeling and redness, therefore allowing a speedy recovery”.

 

What happens during a laser treatment?

Non-ablative laser is a skin resurfacing treatment that helps to improve wrinkles, photodamage and minor scars using heat and light. This process triggers a controlled wound-healing process in the skin and stimulates cellular renewal and collagen production. As laser treatments create heat in the skin, they work well with products that work to cool and comfort the skin post procedure.

 

What products should I use after a laser treatment?

SkinCeuticals’ Phyto Corrective Masque soothes feelings of immediate post-laser discomfort and reduces skin temperature by up to 2.8 degrees. It cools on contact so will reduce feelings of sensitivity while restoring radiance and smoothness to the skin with a soothing formula that’s enriched with hyaluronic acid, dipeptide and botanicals.

 

“The cocktail of soothing ingredients in the Phyto Corrective Masque makes it the ideal partner to non-ablative laser treatments,” says Dr Haus. “After laser particularly, there will be a lot of heat in the skin.
