Hydration to Heal
Here in the desert, everyone knows proper hydration is essential for life. But did you know how important the concept of hydration to heal is? In today’s blog we show you how important hydration to heal post laser treatment is to your recovery.
Hydration to Heal
Cosmetic laser treatments involve injuring the skin to create a controlled wound to trigger the production of new skin cells to produce beautiful young skin. Hydration plays a major role in the rate at which your wounds heal post treatment.
A lack of moisture at the wound’s surface will stop cellular migration, reduce oxygenation of the blood and delay your healing process. Hydration plays a critical role in recovering from your cosmetic laser treatments.
If the controlled injury created on the surface of your skin fails to maintain adequate moisture, the new skin cells that work to repair damaged tissue will not be able to cover the wound at a normal rate, leaving your skin susceptible to open air and infection.
8 glasses water per day is the minimum amount of water your body needs to function properly. Here in the desert, your body is continuously being depleted of H20 because it is so dry and hot. You can never drink enough water. Be sure to stay hydrated for the successful healing of your skin before and after your cosmetic laser treatments.
