Skin health is the underpinning of a successful skin rejuvenation procedure, and it is worth investing in yourself to get the most out of your procedure. While treatments generally target rebuilding and resurfacing, products address skin issues, such as blackheads, congestion, irritation, redness, excess oil, and dehydration. You might wonder: “Why do I still need to buy products if I’m investing in a treatment?” 

The Importance of Skincare Products


A customized skincare regimen sets the foundation for healthy skin and helps improve the effectiveness of cosmetic procedures. Products allow treatments to be truly successful by speeding up the healing process and allowing you to achieve better results. So, perhaps you’re asking: if these products are so great and important, can they replace a cosmetic procedure? No, they cannot! Comprehensive skincare routines and well-formulated skincare products – it always takes more than one product – can make a huge difference in the appearance and health of your skin. However, they cannot act as a substitute to cosmetic procedures – the former utilize medical-grade ingredients to bring benefits to the skin while the latter remodels tissue in the underlying layers of your skin.


Ultimately, each is improved by the other: skin products and cosmetic treatments go together perfectly. Skin, the epidermis, is the largest organ in the body and the most visible one – it deserves special attention.

Can Skincare Products Help with My Recovery Process?

After each cosmetic procedure, your body requires a short period of time to adjust itself to the new reality. Depending on the procedure or treatment type, the recovery time can vary. For example, some laser treatments require more downtime, while others are not so picky. 

As patients are eager to see the results of their procedures kick in, the following question becomes legitimate: “Is there a way for me to bring the results to light faster?” Lucky for you, the answer is yes – topical treatment products provide your skin with medical-grade ingredients such as antioxidants, peptides, humectants, and hydrators it needs to recover, like chicken soup for a cold. The recommended products are only allowed to be dispensed by a physician, and backed by clinical studies that prove their efficacy.

We’re delighted to inform would-be patients that skincare products benefit the recovery process in multiple ways. Let’s use the following paragraphs to discuss them one by one:


Some procedures may result in small, minimal scars, but treatment products such as scar recovery gels can eliminate or heal them more quickly. If fear of scarring is what causes you to hesitate in opting for a cosmetic treatment, talk to your plastic surgeon about skincare products that can eliminate or minimize scars or speed up your recovery time. The Vinyard Institute of Plastic Surgery offers such scar recovery gels to patients who want to make scars a thing of the past as quickly as possible.

Prevents Infection

Your surgeon may recommend certain cleansing products and ointments to prevent and fight infection, allowing your body to focus on recovering and being beautiful.

One of the biggest things to be aware of is the elasticity of the skin. Skin is naturally flexible and elastic, and as the treated area takes on a different shape, you want the skin to be able to adapt well so that you do not experience unwanted loose skin. As one ages, or as one’s skin health wanes, the skin can lose a lot of its elasticity and can’t “snap back” to however one would like without some intervention. Skin products can promote collagen and elastin production in the skin and prevent unwanted sagging. 

Even Tone and Glow

Skin products that promote the health of the skin can help reduce pigmentation, soothe redness, brighten dull areas, and kindle a healthy glow to the skin. This is the finishing touch on a treatment, it’s the go-the-extra-mile part. 

Better Results

As mentioned earlier, healthy skin is crucial to a successful outcome, and skincare products promote skin health. The products used on the skin in those days, weeks, and months following treatment can make the difference between a good and a superior look.

What Skincare Product Line Should I Choose?

Choosing the right skincare products can be a bit of a hassle, and we know it. Out of so many options available on the market, who knows which one will better take care of your skincare needs? Don’t worry – we’ve got you covered.
