Here at drugstore.com, we have a number of the scar and post-surgery healing treatments that dermatologists recommend by name, so you can easily stock up on the products you need for post-procedure care.

Assisting With Post-Procedure Healing



Following plastic surgery, chemical peels and other clinical interventions, it's normal to develop bruising and swelling in the treated area. These side effects of treatments do gradually subside, but many people want to speed up the healing process so that they can truly see the results from their treatments and begin to look and feel their best sooner.

Post-procedure skin care products can be used in the days following treatments to increase the speed of recovery. While formulas vary, most post-procedure products contain ingredients like arnica oil and vitamin K that reduce inflammation and help bruises fade.

Typically, post-procedure products can only be applied to wounds that have closed. You can read the product descriptions and directions to learn more about the dermatologist skin care formulas. If your doctor has recommended that you use a certain post-procedure product, you can use the menu at the left to shop by brand and find it quickly.

Products for Addressing Scarring



If a clinical procedure that you underwent has resulted in permanent scarring or you have scars from surgery, an injury or previous acne breakouts, there are a number of dermatologist skin care products that you can use to address the problem. Different products are formulated for addressing different types of scars.

Products for raised or hypertrophic scars often work by exfoliating or smoothing the skin, while formulas for other types of scarring may interfere with collagen production or promote a more even skin tone to make scars less apparent. The product descriptions will help you select the right products for minimizing the type of scars that you have and for use during different phases of the healing process.

Complementing the Actions of Clinical Interventions



When you're undergoing a series of clinical treatments to address a problem like stretch marks, scarring or cellulite, using certain post-procedure products between appointments at home could help to enhance the effectiveness of the treatments. These products moisturize and nourish the skin and treat the tissue to therapeutic active ingredients to help you get the most out of the in-office interventions.
