From Ti to Zn-Protecting Your Patient's Skin After Laser Treatments

October 23, 2019

Protecting Skin After Laser Treatments

Summer is here

With summer on the doorstep (hooray!), protection for your patient's skin after laser treatment and in their everyday lives is essential to protect the post-procedure skin from sunburn and to decrease sun damage such as freckles and age-spots in the long-term.

A mask against Sol

Zinc and titanium are two of the key ingredients in physical sunscreens and work by deflecting (or bouncing) UV rays off the skin. They are particularly good because they reduce the stimulation of melanocytes that cause dyspigmentation.

They are usually thicker and whiter than a chemical sunscreen formula and their "cosmetic elegance" varies from product to product. Those available in the supermarket or pharmacy are generally thicker and more obvious where those from skin clinics are formulated to sit lightly on the skin and are comfortable to wear and great for under makeup.

You know where it is (& isn't)

It is easy to see where they have been applied and when they have been inadvertently rubbed off. This means that sensitive areas are covered and protection levels are better maintained throughout the day.

Great for sensitive skin

Physical UV filters are growing in popularity, as they can be less irritating for sensitive skin than certain chemical filters but they might not be the best choice for oily or acne-prone skins due to their thickness.
