Cosmeceuticals by definition are cosmetic products that contain biologically active ingredients that appear to have medical or drug-like benefits to the skin. Dermatologic research has shown that these products can be more beneficial in terms of promoting healthy skin then traditional moisturizers. They are applied topically as either a cream, ointment or gel.
These products can not only be used after surgery to help with healing or to conceal normal post operative blemishes, but they can also be used on a more daily basis to prevent wrinkles and to keep your skin looking young and fresh. Dr. Tien may recommend using one or two of these products after undergoing facial cosmetic surgery.
