Pre and Post Op Skin and Health FAQs
How do SkinMedica products help me with my skin before and after surgery?
The SkinMedica skincare product system enhances the effectiveness of cosmetic procedures by preparing your skin for any trauma associated with the treatment. After the procedure, SkinMedica products help your skin return to normal and to tolerate and reduce complications. It restores skin health by correcting and stimulating its regular functions, which works to achieve a better overall result from both surgical as well as non-surgical procedures. SkinMedica products even help lessen the acuteness of hyperpigmentation (skin darkening), the duration of skin redness due to capillary dilation. They prevent the small, cyst-like developments known as “milia” and can be used to successfully treat any flare-ups due to skin irritation.
My skin is very dry. Is it safe to use SkinMedica products prior to surgery, which may dry it out further?
SkinMedica skin care products have been thoroughly tested and are safe to use on any type of skin regardless of condition, age or tone.
Can I purchase SkinMedica from anyone except my doctor?
No. Because SkinMedica products are prescription strength and potentially harmful if not used with special training, such as undergone by your doctor and his staff, the Federal Drug Administration regulates their use. By following the directions of your physician when using SkinMedica skin care products, you may avoid adverse reactions.
Why is it important for me to consume the VitaMedica supplements you provide before my surgery?
Wound healing is impeded when patients are not nutritionally sound. Because the goal of a successful surgery is to have you looking good and back to your normal lifestyle, we want you to heal as quickly and scar-free as possible and have therefore supplied this supplement to give you every opportunity to do so.
What does VitaMedica have in it that helps me heal?
Arnica and Bromelaine are two ingredients in the VitaMedica supplement thought to reduce swelling and bruising and to promote healing. Other ingredients in the supplement, including Vitamin E, which is included after surgery (it is contraindicated prior to surgery), help you to achieve a nutritional balance that encourages not only healthy skin but overall health, as well.
Can I look younger through good skin care alone?
Yes. Taking care of your skin by following a good daily skin care regimen, staying out of the sun whenever possible, wearing sun block every day, eating a healthy diet, and drinking plenty of good water will help you look younger. More advanced skin care procedures available at our Tampa office, such as regular microdermabrasion and alphahydroxy peels, can keep your skin fresh and healthy for an even more youthful appearance.
Are there procedures which can get rid of wrinkles in my face without surgery?
Yes. Procedures such as microdermabrasion and alphahydroxy peels can diminish fine lines and reduce wrinkles. Laser skin resurfacing goes even deeper and can go as far as significantly smoothing deep wrinkles.
How can I get rid of age spots?
Bleaching agents, such as hydroquinone or Kojic acid, can gradually fade age spots. When combined with peels, Retin A, or microdermabrasion, these skin care treatments are have a more dramatic effect.
What can microdermabrasion do for me?
By removing the outer layer of dead skin cells and stimulating collagen production, microdermabrasion can rejuvenate your skin in many ways. It can smooth fine lines, reduce acne scars, reduce hyperpigmentation, and reduce sun damage.
What can an alphahydroxy peel do for me?
An alphahydroxy chemical peel sloughs off dead skin cells, promotes new cell growth and stimulates the production of collagen and elastin. This can diminish fine lines and wrinkles, reduce age spots, improve acne, reduce sun damage, improve rough skin, and diminish large pores. The result is healthier, younger looking skin.
I don’t have time for a complicated skin care regime. Can’t I just have plastic surgery instead?
Of course you can always choose to have surgery, but the results will be much better and longer lasting if you take good care of your skin. At Elite Facial Plastic Surgery we believe in tailoring our skin rejuvenation treatments to fit Tampa men and women’s lifestyles. Our aesthetician will help you choose a combination of products designed to produce maximum results in a simple, convenient daily regimen.
Why do I need to stay out of the sun?
The sun is the largest contributor to aging of the skin. Sun exposure causes wrinkles, age spots, and potentially cancer. You need to protect yourself from the sun to get the best results from your surgery or skin care procedure.
