What Should You Look For in Post-Treatment Serums?
“The ultimate post-treatment serum and skin booster is the 30 Day Treatment”, says Dr.Sigrún Dögg Guðjónsdóttir, Chief of Research and Development Officer at BIOEFFECT. The 30 Day Treatment is formulated with 3 different plant-made growth factors, Barley EGF, Barley IL-1A and Barley KGF that support the skin´s healing process while providing intense hydration and anti-ageing benefits. The serum contains only 9 ingredients, with no added fragrance or preservatives, so it´s extremely pure and ideal to use on sensitive post-treatment skin.
“I would always recommend staying clear of serums or creams with fragrances or actives that could irritate the skin, alcohol, acids and retinoids for example”, says Dr.Sigrún.
Serums and creams that deliver intense hydration and aid the skin’s restorative process post-treatment are optimal and can enhance the overall effectiveness of the treatment long-term.
Hyaluronic Acid. Known for its exceptional hydrating properties, hyaluronic acid is a star ingredient in post-treatment serums. It attracts and retains moisture, helping to plump and hydrate the skin. This is particularly important after treatments that may leave the skin feeling dry or dehydrated.
Growth Factors. Growth factors contribute to the skin's natural rejuvenation process, helping to improve elasticity and firmness support the skin's regeneration process after treatments.
