Reference: para sus cuidados posteriores, que no para darle quebraderos de cabeza

Reference information:
Aftercare son cuidados posteriores y la connotación del término es positiva, mientras que afterthoughts son los pensamientos que tienes después de que haya ocurrido algo, como los remordimientos o el 'feeling' que te entre, y la connotación puede ser más bien negativa. Si el contexto es de marketing del producto, puede ser que quiera decir que el producto es bueno para tus cuidados (posteriores), y que no te arrepentirás después de haberlo usado!
