Can I get facials or lasers after getting a rhinoplasty?
Scarless Nose™ Rhinoplasty, also known as a closed nose job, is a common cosmetic surgery that Dr. Dugar has dedicated his whole practice to and he performs this procedure by refining the nose to improve its appearance or function. After undergoing scarless nose™ rhinoplasty with Dr. Dugar, many patients report that their nose skin is oily and clogged after the cast removal. Patients may wonder if they can still get facials or laser treatments and how soon after their surgery would they be able to get them. Many patients report that their nose skin is oily and clogged after the cast removal. In general, Dr. Dugar recommends that it is best to wait 6 weeks to get facials or lasers after Scarless Nose™ rhinoplasty.
Facials are a great way to improve the health and appearance of your skin. After Scarless Nose™ rhinoplasty, it is recommended to wait at least two weeks before getting a facial to avoid any potential complications. During the first few weeks after surgery, your skin may be more sensitive, and getting a facial too soon could cause irritation or infection.
When getting a facial, it’s important to choose a reputable and experienced esthetician who will use gentle products and techniques. Avoid facials that involve heavy manipulation of the skin, such as microdermabrasion or chemical peels, as they may damage the delicate skin around the nose. We also don’t want too much manipulation done to the nose to avoid damaging what was done during surgery.
Laser treatments are used to address a variety of skin concerns, such as fine lines, wrinkles, and sun damage. After Scarless Nose™ rhinoplasty, it’s best to wait at least six weeks before getting a laser treatment, as your skin may still be healing and more sensitive.
When getting a laser treatment, be sure to choose an experienced practitioner who uses the latest technology and techniques. Avoid lasers that cause excessive heat, such as fractional CO2 lasers, as they may damage the delicate skin around the nose.
Precautions and Guidelines:
When getting facials or laser treatments after rhinoplasty, it is important to follow some precautions and guidelines to minimize the risk of complications:
- Consult with your surgeon: Before getting a facial or laser treatment, be sure to consult with your plastic surgeon. Your surgeon will be able to provide you with specific guidelines and recommendations based on your individual case.
- Use gentle products and techniques: Avoid facials or laser treatments that involve heavy manipulation of the skin or excessive heat. Choose gentle products and techniques that will not irritate or damage the delicate skin around the nose.
- Be patient: After rhinoplasty, it may take several weeks or months for your skin to fully heal. Be patient and avoid getting facials or laser treatments until your skin has fully recovered.
- Protect your skin: After getting a facial or laser treatment, it is important to protect your skin from sun exposure and other environmental factors. Use a high-SPF sunscreen, wear a wide-brimmed hat, and avoid direct sun exposure during the first few weeks after treatment.
