Having a new skin treatment is very exciting – but please don’t forget your aftercare warns Sue Ibrahim, the skin expert at Elan Medical Skin Clinics in central London and Rayleigh Essex.
Following skin treatments such as veinwave, chemical peels, laser treatment, fractional skin resurfacing, plasma soft surgery, dermal fillers and wrinkle reduction our skin can become highly sensitive. This means that it is more prone to infection, which can lead to scaring. The solution? Ensure you use aftercare products that are:
- Fragrance free
- Preservative free
- Sodium laureth sulphate free
Skincare products that contain fragrances and preservatives commonly cause skin sensitivity, which is why Sue Ibrahim has developed her own range of non-prescription cosmeceuticals that contain clinically proven ingredients.
Elan Medical DermaActives contain the latest advancements in stem cell regeneration, growth factors and oligopeptides that are designed to strengthen the resilience of the skin and protect it from environmental damage.
None of our DermaActive skin products have been tested on animals and each active ingredient has been selected to produce results.
New product launched
Sue has developed a brand new powerful skin rejuvenating cream that revitalises and nourishes ageing and traumatised skin. DermaRecovery Stem Cell Cream contains a synergistic blend of peptides, bio-source epidermal growth factors, plant-derived stem cells and a pro-vitamin complex making it ideal for using after skin treatments.
Ms M. Nightingale, an Elan Medical Skin Clinic client, said: “I was given this cream as part of my aftercare following a procedure at the clinic. It certainly helped reduce the downtime following the procedure. I was told to expect around 14 days downtime and my skin healed within 7 days! I have purchased another pot on behalf of a friend. I will certainly carry on using my cream for the full 6 weeks as it is very light and soothing.”
Also recommended is the DermaRecovery Serum, which boosts skin density, texture and firmness and has been found to be more effective than vitamin C in clinical studies.
Linda Webster said: “It is now 4 weeks post surgery and you cannot even tell where the moles ever were! I was doubtful at first when Sue recommended the DermaRecovery serum, but I applied it twice a day as she recommended and I now have only very, very faint pink scars, which will fade in time. I am so pleased with the results and would definitely go back for more procedures and I have now started to use this serum over my whole face. Thank you to Sue who has changed my life and my only regret is not having it done sooner! Highly recommend this clinic and this product to anybody.”
