Schedule a consultation at our Wellesley, MA office to find out how we can assist you during the healing process.

Post-op skin care products and treatments can help the skin heal quickly, speed up recovery, and reduce symptoms, such as bruising, swelling, hyperpigmentation, redness, itching, and dryness. To obtain a better cosmetic outcome after surgery or treatments, follow these instructions:

  • Use mild, hypoallergenic products. Don't apply pressure when cleansing or moisturizing. Pat on the skin instead of rubbing it in.
  • ALWAYS use sun protection. Apply sunscreen or keep skin covered and protected from ultraviolet light.
  • Let wounds heal. Do not pick at peeling skin or scabs to prevent scarring.
  • Hydrate. Hydrate. Hydrate! Drink plenty of water. We recommend six glasses per day to remove toxins from your body to help keep skin healthy.
  • Manage swelling with ice packs and cold compresses. We may recommend sleeping with your head elevated as well for the first three days or so.
  • Our team will instruct you on when to use makeup again. We do recommend washing it off at night.

Dr. Pomerantz is the best! She is very attentive and kind. She is a good listener and helped answer all of my skin care needs. I saw her for Botox and laser hair removal- couldn’t have asked for a better and easier experience. Highly recommend! And check out her brand new office- top of the line!

Dr Pomerantz has been treating me for my Rosacea for a couple of years now and I wouldn't go to anyone else. She also recently treated some moles on my face which I was anxious about. After all, it's my face. She and her staff made me feel comfortable and confident in the treatment. My skin looks amazing and I'm so happy I found such a great Dr to put my trust in. For any skin care needs, I would definitely recommending 100%, making an appointment to see Dr Pomerantz at VivaSkin.
