Welcome to Your After Procedure Support Pack.
You are receiving this information because you’ve decided to take your skin care to the next level with a skin-needling in-clinic treatment or an acne or pigmentation-specific chemical peel.
Calming Your Skin
The skin's redness will diminish greatly after a few hours following the treatment and within the next 24 hours the skin will be generally calmed. After three days the skin will return to a normal or near normal appearance.
Please avoid applying makeup or excessive sun exposure for first 48 hours.
Gentle Products to Use in Follow-Up
Since you had an in-clinic treatment, Dr Jeni has selected the following gentle skincare products to assist with the healing process and to enhance the results.
These complimentary skin care products will ensure your recovery is comfortable and reduce the chance of unwanted effects.
Each of these products contain powerhouse ingredients with unique benefits and combine to complement each other.
In Your Skin Care Support Pack
Squalane Cleanser - STEP 1 twice daily
This is a gentle, non-comedogenic, balm-like facial cleanser that incorporates squalane and lipophilic esters (fatty acids that help bind water and oil).
It will gently prevent build-up of facial impurities that would otherwise remain on the skin and clog pores.
100% Plant-Derived Squalane – STEP 3 twice daily
This is a fast absorbing, non-comedogenic hydrator for the skin. It will help to reduce the ongoing loss of hydration that weakens the elasticity and suppleness of the skin.
Buffet Copper Peptides (1% copper tripeptide (GHK-Cu) – STEP 2 Once daily [PM]
This 1% copper tripeptide (GHK-Cu) product is made from chains of amino acids -the essential building blocks of the skin.
Through various mechanisms, topically applied peptides aim to encourage the skin to enhance production of essential components, such as collagen.
This product will help your skin to repair itself.
NMF – STEP 4 twice daily / several times a day as needed
Derived from 100% Plant-Derived Squalane, this is a non-greasy cream containing multiple components found in the skin’s natural moisturizing factors (NMF) including amino acids, dermal lipids and hyaluronic acid.
NMF is the skin’s own hydration tool. It consists of elements that keep the outer layer of the skin protected and well-hydrated.
Sunscreen [ClearSkin]- STEP 5 [AM] / apply everyday /several times a day as needed.
With a moisturising base, this SPF 30+ broad spectrum (UVA and UVB) sunscreen is formulated without oil, is lightweight and absorbs quickly and fully into the skin. As an oil-free sunscreen, it is suitable for breakout and acne prone skin.
From Week Two after your procedure, you will need to alternate your use of Buffet Copper Peptides with NMF at night. Other instructions for daily use are on the product labels.
