A newbie's guide to post-procedure skincare - French Beauty Co.

Many skincare routines can have a set amount of products to use. Did you know, though, that there is skincare, particularly for post-procedure? Post-procedure skincare is the kind of skincare you apply after fillers, microneedling, peels, and laser treatments. While these procedures are optional, they do a lot to improve the overall state of your skin. However, peels and fillers may bring redness and irritation.  As a result, your skin may feel a bit more delicate compared to usual.

For your post-procedure skincare, you will need to be careful with the products you use. Here at French Beauty Co, we’ve got it all for you! 


What Is Post-Procedure Skincare?

Post-procedure skincare is the skincare routine that you use after you’ve undergone a cosmetic procedure. Your blood vessels play a vital role in the healing process. These procedures stimulate blood flow throughout your body and can improve the quality of your skin. 

Your dermatologist can give some advice to maintain healthy skin. Fortunately, we’ve got your back!


Post-Procedure Skincare

Feeling lost and confused about what you can do, to your skin after a procedure? Worried about the side effects of your procedure? 

Down below, we’ve listed down per procedure, the skincare steps you should consider.


Microneedling can help your skin produce more collagen. It is an in-person method where a dermatologist uses fine needles to micropuncture the skin. This method is popular because it is less invasive and has less downtime. 

What we recommend: You can reach for sunscreen for the first 2 weeks after microneedling. We also think it’s best to avoid exfoliants, retinol, and vitamin C in the meantime, especially since these ingredients can be harsh.

After two full days have passed, you can gradually add products back into your daily beauty routine. 

Chemical Peels

Chemical peels remove dead skin cells to reveal healthier skin underneath. It treats sun spots, scars, and redness. However, the results vary depending on the strength of the peel. Therefore, you must find a chemical peel that fits your skin type. Avoid UV exposure and use sunscreens to protect yourself. 

What we recommend: You might click on something rich, with gentle ingredients and plenty of good skincare benefits. After a chemical peel, your skin might feel a little more vulnerable than usual, so we also recommend that you still stick to applying your sunscreen like Avene or any form of sun protection you’ve got! 

Sunscreen helps not only repair your moisture barrier but also protects your skin from the harmful rays of the sun!
