Did you know that makeup application after some procedures can cause an unwanted infection? Therefore, we highly stress preventing infections after procedures by avoiding all makeup applications after any treatments that reduce the barrier function of the skin. This includes injectables, micro needling, peels and ablative lasers. This is because it leaves the skin exposed with easy access for bacterial growth.
Your skin is your largest organ and since it is porous, it will absorb whatever you put on it. After treatments your skin can be extra sensitive and more susceptible to irritation and contamination.
Following through with your after-care instructions will ultimately offer you the best results in preventing infections after procedures.
