DermaMedics Post Procedure Kit

 

What is the DermaMedics Post Procedure Kit?

Many procedures, including LASER skin-resurfacing, chemical peels, dermabrasion are effective ways to restore youthfulness to aging skin. Laser resurfacing is based on the principle of "wounding" the skin. In the process of repairing the damage caused by the LASER procedure, the skin produces new collagen and elastin, thereby increasing the skin's resilience and elasticity.

There are two main types of LASERs used to re-surface skin; ABLATIVE and NON-ABLATIVE LASERs. Of the two, the ablative LASER produces more "wounding" and therefore, produces results which are usually superior to non-abalitve procedures. With both procedures, the repair process from the "wounding" event involves three phases: 1) the INFLAMMATORY phase, 2) the proliferative or REBUILDING phase and 3) the RE-MODELING phase. The major events occuring in the INFLAMMATORY PHASE include the production of a large number of inflammatory "hormones", increased production of enzymes that destroy damaged skin, the infiltration of immune cells, and the generation of large amounts of free radicals (called ROS). In a typical skin wound, the bulk of the INFLAMMATORY response peaks in a day or two. As the level of inflammation resides, the RE-BUILDING phase can begin. However, unlike a simple cut in the skin, the damage caused by LASER re-surfacing is extensive and because the surface of the skin is damaged, the skin can become extremely dehydrated and under-moisturized. This condition of dehydration EXTENDS the time of the INFLAMMATORY phase.  Depending on the type of LASER procedure, which determines how much damage occurs to the skin's surface and therefore how much dehydration can occur, patients may have lilttle or considerable discomfort for several days or more until the skin can repair its surface (stratum corneum) and thereby once again achieve normal moisturization and rehydration.

DermaMedics Post Laser Treatment System has been designed to moisturize, and to help reduce water loss without the greasiness of typical products thereby providng the patient a more comfortable product to use after cosmetic procedures.
