You have done your homework looking up the best skin procedure. But do you know that what you use during and after is just as important?
There is a buzz among the aesthetic clinics in Singapore. One aesthetician had declared that “something revolutionary” was happening to her treatments. The spotlight wasn’t on the treatment itself now; but what was being used during the treatment that was making the big difference. More than 50 med-spas across Singapore are now on-board with this revolutionary technology, called CALECIM ® Professional Serum: a mixture of active growth factors, cytokines and proteins uniquely derived from cord lining stem cells. This potent composition is being directed deep into the skin during the latest in-ofﬁce treatments, such as lasers, LED, microneedling and hydrafacials, to allow targeted rejuvenation to take place beneath the surface of the skin.
Patients that frequent clinics for their monthly or annual skin boost have noticed a change in their treatments with the application of the stem cell serum. At ﬁrst, they were just raving about how much faster they could ‘return to work’; especially noticeable after intensive procedures such as ablative laser treatments. Larry Yeo, Singapore’s foremost celebrity makeup artist, reported that CALECIM ® Professional Serum, managed to “calm skin down and help accelerate my down time” after undergoing a laser treatment for improving skin texture and decreasing acne scarring.
Doctors also noticed that patients were happier, not only because they could recover faster after their treatments, but also because the positive results of the procedures were becoming more consistent. Dr. Mitchel Goldman, a renowned dermatologist and a skin laser expert in San Diego, reckons that it is improved healing that is the basis for the better results.
“CALECIM ® which comprises protein growth factors secreted by Umbilical Cord Lining Stem Cells… contains anti-inﬂammatory cytokines like Interleukin -10...and improve ﬂibroblastic function when applied to the skin after skin resurfacing therapy,” says Dr. Goldman in an article he submitted in the medical journal PRIME.
Doctors who specialise in anti-aging have long been aware of the connection between healthy, youthful skin and its ability to heal. In fact, most in-clinic treatments work on the premise of ‘controlled injury’ so that skin is compelled to ‘recover’ by producing new cells — the basis of an improved aesthetic result. Simply said, boosting the skin’s recovery through the application of powerful stem cell proteins leads to better aesthetic outcomes because your recovery is now super-charged and accelerated.
BEWARE: FRAGILE SKIN AHEAD
How to take care of your skin after a procedure
More sun protection please
Many doctors recommend that you avoid direct sun for a few days after your procedure. Choose a sunblock that blocks alpha and beta ultraviolet rays, and make sure that the formula is not too thick as that might clog up your pores.
Hydrate, hydrate, hydrate
Do you know that your body, and your skin, requires more water when it is in recovery mode? Make sure that you keep your skin hydrated, inside and out, and increase your daily intake of water.
Choose your after-care with care
Reactive treatment creams such as AHAs, retinoids and certain anti-oxidants are best to be avoided after a procedure as skin is sensitive. Doctors have been using CALECIM® Professional as the after-care product of choice as it has been clinically proven to calm down traumatised skin. It also helps accelerate the skin’s natural recovery process through a potent mix of growth factors and proteins that do not irritate the skin.
Want to make use of real stem cell science to treat your skin issues? Here are some targeted treatments that aesthetic doctors and medi-spas are offering that include a potent dose of stem cell proteins.
For tired, dull skin
The CALECIM ® Oxy Treatment uses jet infusion to saturate skin with potent stem cell growth factors and proteins. If you need a skin booster that allows you to shine on that evening without needles or pain, this is something to consider that will rev up your skin’s radiance.
To improve skin texture and acne scarring
Microneedling has been used with considerable success for the treatment of acne scarring, and the Intracel Advance treatment combines it with Fractional Radio-frequency to smoothen out the skin surface. Active stem cell proteins are added during and after the treatment to ensure that the skin’s structural layer is effectively restored.
To treat eye bags and dark circles
Discoloration and bags around the eyes are due to stress damage accumulated by the fragile tissue in the area. Give the skin cells around your eyes a rejuvenating boost that allows them to renew at an accelerated rate. Prive PerfectEye combines a reviving laser treatment with an application of CALECM® Professional Serum.
For thin and lax skin
Thin skin that is losing its elasticity makes your face look tired and sagging. Skin density is hard to rebuild but with the addition of active stem cell proteins in the CellRewind Treatment with microneedling, collagen layers are encouraged to restore as cell renewal activity kicks in.
