Want to know one of the best ways to optimize your advanced skin rejuvenation experience? Using powerful pre- and post-care products! While you may be tempted to reach for a drug store moisturizer to calm your skin, only medical-grade skin care is specially formulated to complement professional aesthetic treatments. With the proper products at your disposal, you can speed healing, protect your skin and even enhance your results.
While pre-procedure products prep your skin for success, post-procedure products are essential for maintaining your newly revitalized complexion. Our favorites at AVIE! include Alastin® Skincare and SkinMedica®, two top-of-the-line brands backed by science and clinically proven to maximize skin health and radiance.
There are so many ways you can get glowing on your best skin yet! Let’s look at our top treatment and product pairings designed to take your results to the next level:
Halo® with Alastin Skincare Line
If you’ve set out to address visible signs of aging and sun damage with Halo laser skin resurfacing, Alastin Skincare products are a must to have in your pre- and post-care lineup. Alastin’s professional procedure enhancement products are specifically designed to elevate treatment results. Formulated with TriHex Technology®, Alastin products aid in the process of restoring and regenerating healthy skin to accelerate the healing process. To support laser treatments like Halo, which involve a few days of recovery, Regenerating Skin Nectar with TriHex Technology is an amazing product to prep your skin for optimal results, calm redness and support new collagen and elastin growth. Other Alastin must-haves if you’re undergoing a Halo treatment include HydraTint Pro Mineral Broad Spectrum Sunscreen, Soothe + Protect Recovery Balm and Ultra Light Moisturizer with TriHex Technology.
Moxi® with Alastin Regenerating Skin Nectar & SkinMedica TNS Ceramide
Taking the aesthetic world by storm, Moxi non-ablative laser resurfacing can impart a radiant glow while addressing sun damage, uneven skin tone and signs of aging for all skin types. And what better way to help your skin heal after a laser skin treatment like Moxi than with medical-grade skin care! Two products we recommend using are Alastin Regenerating Skin Nectar and SkinMedica TNS Ceramide Treatment Cream™. Your skin will be pink in the days after your Moxi, so keeping it hydrated and soothed is key to ensuring a fast, comfortable recovery. While Regenerating Skin Nectar protects the skin barrier and minimizes redness, TNS Ceramide hydrates and helps restore the skin’s barrier function and moisture balance.
BBL® with SkinMedica Even & Correct or Alastin A-luminate Brightening Serum™
The gold standard in targeting unwanted discoloration such as dark spots, age spots and hyperpigmentation, BBL (broadband light) photofacial uses high energy light to target pigment in the skin and create a more even skin tone. After your BBL photofacial, you’ll want to support your results to further reduce surface pigmentation and create a brighter, more luminous complexion. We recommend using SkinMedica Even & Correct Advanced Brightening Treatment or Alastin A-luminate Brightening Serum. Both products help target and prevent visible hyperpigmentation with a hydroquinone-free and retinol-free formulation — the choice will be based on your specific needs of concern and will be paired with your in-office treatment!
VirtueRF microneedling with Alastin Regenerating Skin Nectar
You can enjoy the benefits of VirtueRF microneedling for the long-term when you pair your treatment with the right skin care. After a VirtueRF treatment, your skin will continue to produce new collagen and elastin for up to six months to reveal smoother, tighter and more radiant skin. To speed post-RF microneedling healing, a formulation of potent antioxidants and peptides can help reduce redness and soothe your skin — bringing us back to Alastin Regenerating Skin Nectar! This product even works in the weeks before your VirtueRF treatment, pre-conditioning and pre-treating the skin by clearing out damaged skin cells in preparation for healthy regrowth, as it does with all our ablative services.
Aesthetic treatments and medical-grade skin care are a match made in heaven — and we can’t wait for you to experience the magic! Call 703.737.0197 or request a consultation online to get started with the AVIE! team today.
