Pre and post procedure skin care is an often overlooked sector of our market. With the rate of cosmetic surgery and popularity of ablative laser treatments growing, there are many clients who need pre and post procedure care to help strengthen their skin and reduce unwanted complications such as post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation and bruising. There are also many plastic surgeons that would benefit from partnering with a knowledgeable and experienced esthetician, like you, to help improve their outcomes.


This month’s Guide outlines strategies and guidelines for both pre and post procedure skin care treatments. If you have a client considering undergoing cosmetic surgery, make sure you are part of the discussion when it comes to timing and planning so you and your client have enough time to strengthen her skin and outline an in-office and at-home plan of action for the best results possible!

We missed you all at ICES Philadelphia and Dallas this year, but of course everyone’s health and safety comes first. We hope that you are doing your part in social distancing and remaining positive throughout this difficult time. As always, we will continue to be your connection to all things skincare and spa related!


Happy Spring!
