Unveiling the Essence of Radiance: The Importance of Post-Treatment Serums.

In the pursuit of healthy and radiant skin, the world of skincare has witnessed an evolution in facial treatments and their availability. Among the arsenal of skincare products, post-treatment serums stand out as the unsung heroes, working diligently to enhance the results of your treatments and providing a post-treatment boost.

The Age of Post-Treatment Serums.

Post-treatment serums are specially formulated to be applied after various skincare treatments, such as facials, chemical peels, microdermabrasion, or laser procedures. These treatments can leave the skin delicate, sensitive, or in need of extra nourishment. Enter post-treatment serums, armed with a potent blend of active ingredients tailored to soothe, rejuvenate, and maximize the benefits of the preceding skincare procedures.

What sets post-treatment serums apart is their carefully curated ingredient list. These serums often include a combination of antioxidants, soothing and hydrating agents to address specific post-treatment needs but growth factors are the key ingredients for transformative results. Growth factors can help stimulate collagen production and the skin's regeneration process helping to speed up the skin's recovery post-treatment. The result is firmer, smoother and healthier skin.

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.

Layering techniques. 

Utilise layering techniques to maximise the benefits of your post-treatment serum. Apply a serum and mask before your moisturiser and sunscreen. This allows the active ingredients to penetrate the skin effectively and create a protective barrier. The BIOEFFECT Imprinting Hydrogel Mask is a deeply soothing hydrogel mask with Hyaluronic Acid to deliver intense moisturization and maximize the efficacy of BIOEFFECT serums. Store in the refrigerator before application for an intense cooling effect that can help soothe inflamed and red skin post-treatment.

By incorporating the BIOEFFECT 30 Day Treatment and Imprinting Hydrogel Masks into your skincare routine, you not only help enhance the results of your treatments but also provide your skin with the care and attention it deserves. Unlock the wonder of post-treatment serums and let your skin revel in the glow of true radiance. Your skincare journey is about to reach new heights!
