Read on to find out if your daily behaviors may be getting in the way of your treatment and what you can do to fix them!atlanta skin resurfacing

If you’re getting wrinkle treatments like CO2 fractionated laser resurfacing…

You’re on the right track when targeting fine lines and wrinkles with CO2 fractionated laser resurfacing. Before and after treatment, it’s important to cease common habits that accelerate the aging process, including smoking, excessive alcohol consumption, and indoor/outdoor tanning. The same goes for many other laser treatments that we offer. When trying to look your best, it’s ideal to try to cut back on behaviors that are documented to worsen your appearance over time.

If you’re undergoing cellulite reduction with Viora Reaction™ for skin tightening…

Skin tightening with Viora Reaction™ can treat cellulite while tightening skin and contouring the body. However, it’s important to do your part in your everyday lifestyle in order to achieve your desired results of reducing cellulite. We recommend replacing processed, fattening foods with fruits and vegetables and increasing your overall water consumption. Though there is still much that science does not know about how cellulite works, people often see a visible reduction when fat is replaced with muscle. Add strength training to your workout routine a few times per week.

If you’re in the midst of laser hair removal treatments…

It may be hard not to pluck or wax if it’s part of your normal routine, but we recommend refraining from any method of hair removal that pulls from the root during laser hair removal treatment time. Shaving, however, is acceptable and is actually recommended right before treatment to help minimize discomfort and increase the efficiency of the laser. Additionally, it’s very important to stay out of the sun before and after treatment to avoid changes in pigmentation or burning.

If you’re preparing to enjoy a massage…

Make time to eat a healthy meal a couple of hours earlier than your massage, not directly beforehand, to avoid digestive issues. If you’ve had massage therapy before and not felt the benefits you may have expected, be sure to drink extra water to flush away toxins. Additionally, ditch the habit of only having massage therapy once a year. Massage has cumulative therapeutic effects, so your body will likely respond more quickly when you schedule multiple appointments.
