What to do after undergoing a minor operation?

Discover how to deal with the after-effects of a superficial skin operation and the proper actions to perform to help the repair process along and reduce marks on your fragile skin.

Cosmetic treatments and superficial operations create lesions that also require a minimum of care.

What to do before and after a surgical operation?

Before: avoid exposure to UV rays in the weeks preceding the operation; skin must be protected with an SPF 50+ to ward off the risk of post-inflammatory pigmentation.

After: accelerate skin regeneration in the event of redness, swelling and superficial lesions by using a moisturising cream with hyaluronic acid daily; this promotes the repair of fragile skin. If there is a risk of infection, use an antibacterial repairing cream. In any event, leave the house with an SPF 50+ cream applied and conceal postoperative marks with a touch of hypo-allergenic corrective make-up.

BONUS

Learn all about the beneficial massage technique for reducing marks :
1. Apply your repairing cream for fragile skin until it has penetrated completely.
2. Pinch the treated area between your fingers and pull up.
3. Palpate and roll your skin all around the area. The technique: using two hands, gently pinch the area between your fingers and roll your skin.
4. Repeat this action for two to three minutes, twice a day.
