How to Maximize The Results of Your Treatment

O’Neill Plastic Surgery is Charleston’s go-to spot for cosmetic and aesthetic services, with a comprehensive team that is looking to deliver the best experience and maximize the results of your treatment or procedure. No matter how big or small the procedure, we want you to leave our office feeling happy and confident. It’s important to note, however, that not every treatment is a “one-and-done” service. Some of our procedures require multiple visits, follow-up appointments, or aftercare care instructions. In this blog, we’ll outline some of our top tips to ensure you can maximize the results of your treatment and obtain the best possible outcome.

Combine with a Skincare Routine

For any treatment that targets your face, such as lasers, peels, injections, and facials, you can maximize your results by coupling your service with a consistent and high-quality skincare routine. While cosmetic treatments are a great way to jumpstart your skin care goals, consistency is key, which means that in order to achieve the best outcome, daily skin care is essential. For guidance about which products will help maximize your results, talk to one of the professionals at O’Neill! We are more than happy to get you started on the right track.

Don’t Forget SPF

While finding the right cleanser, serum, and moisturizer is great, no skincare routine is complete without SPF! It doesn’t matter if your facial treatment takes place in the dead of winter; wearing sunscreen is vital to maintaining the results of your service at O’Neill Plastic Surgery. Many of our skin treatments target the effects of sun damage, such as wrinkles, dark spots, and an uneven skin tone, so do your part in preventing future sun damage by wearing SPF every day.

Follow All Aftercare Protocols

For more invasive surgical procedures, it is imperative that you follow all aftercare instructions. Our surgeons carefully put together aftercare protocols to help ensure you have a smooth and safe recovery so that you can get the best possible results. Even if you’re feeling like you’ve been healing quicker than expected, make sure not to cut any corners during your recovery. 

Maintain Healthy Habits

While living a healthy lifestyle is always a good idea, a healthy diet, and regular exercise will help you maximize the results of your treatment, especially if you have recently had a service like CoolSculpting or liposuction. Those procedures are effective at eliminating stubborn fat that is resistant to diet and exercise, but they’re not resistant to a sedentary or unhealthy lifestyle.

Be Patient

We know that the decision to invest in your confidence is an exciting time, but if you’re new to aesthetic services, we encourage you to relax and be patient throughout the process. Depending on your desired service, it’s important to know that sometimes, more than one round of treatment is required to achieve your desired results, and for some other treatments, it takes a couple of weeks or months to reach the full effect. Our team will always be upfront with what you can expect depending on the service you schedule, but rest assured that you’re in good hands regardless of what procedure you choose with O’Neill Plastic Surgery.
