Best Tips for Recovering from a Surgical Procedure or Injury

Recovering from any surgery or injury is a challenging and prolonged process that demands patience and a dedicated recovery routine. However, there are several steps you can take to alleviate discomfort or pain and potentially expedite the healing process. Follow these key tips to help you on your road to recovery and learn how Skinuva products can play a role in your healing!

Listen to Your Doctor

Perhaps the most important thing you can do post-surgery or injury is following your doctor's instructions for recovery. If your doctor prescribes medications, instructs you to restrict activity, or schedules follow-up appointments, it is crucial to follow these instructions. Reach out to your doctor if you have any questions about your post-surgery or injury symptoms, and be sure to openly communicate any other concerns you may have with your doctor. 

Prioritize Rest and Proper Nutrition

Giving your body the rest it needs after surgery or injury is critical for the healing process. Getting enough sleep each night (with rest or naps during the day) is crucial. Additionally, ensuring a comfortable and quiet sleep environment is equally important for quality rest.

Maintaining a balanced diet during your recovery process is also important, as there are nutrient-rich foods that can actually support your immune system and tissue repair. Stay hydrated by drinking plenty of water to promote your overall health.

Pain Management Strategies

While some doctors may prescribe prescription pain killers to help with pain from surgeries or injuries, there are over the counter options to help reduce common symptoms from surgeries or injuries. Using a homeopathic Arnica supplement like Skinuva Bruise can assist in reducing bruising, swelling, and pain resulting from your procedure or injury. Skinuva Bruise includes homeopathic Arnica and other ingredients such as Bromelain, Zinc, Grape Seed Extract, Rutin, and Vitamin C that have anti-inflammatory and pain relieving properties, help the body produce collagen, protect blood vessels, prevent bruising, and regulate every phase of the wound healing process. 

Applying a cold compress to the targeted area can help with any swelling or inflammation you may have. You can also increase blood flow and recovery time with gentle massages to the targeted area. Physical therapy and other therapies such as acupuncture can also help manage your pain.

Post-Surgery or Injury Scar Care

If your surgery or injury has left you with a scar, you can also add a scar cream to your recovery routine to help improve its appearance.

Skinuva Scar is our physician developed and clinically tested scar cream with synthetic Growth Factors, Silicone, and other key ingredients that helps improve the appearance of scars. Skinuva Scar+ SPF contains the same ingredients as Skinuva Scar but with the added benefit of non-nano Zinc Oxide for broad spectrum SPF 30 protection.

Skinuva Scar and Skinuva Scar+ SPF possess hydrating, soothing, and anti-inflammatory properties, aiding in reducing scar pigmentation and flattening them. You should apply your scar cream to your scar twice daily for at least 6 months on newer surgical or injury scars. 

Whether you are currently recovering from surgery or injury or preparing for an upcoming procedure, ensure you are ready to adhere to a dedicated recovery routine and incorporate Skinuva products into your regimen!
