The Best Moisturizer to Use After Laser Treatments and Microneedling - Oxygenetix Oxygenating Hydro-Matrix
Skin resurfacing treatments like CO2 laser procedures and microneedling will leave your skin feeling tight, dry, and itchy as you heal. During the healing process it is important to keep your skin covered and moisturized to alleviate these symptoms but also to make sure you heal properly. The moisturizer cream you choose is important since your skin is more susceptible to irritation post treatment.
The best moisturizer on the market today for post treatment care is Oxygenetix Oxygenating Hydro-Matrix. Specifically designed to be used after laser procedures, Hydro-Matrix is safe for compromised skin up to a third degree burn.
Oxygenetix Hydro-Matrix moisturizer is a lightweight yet intensely hydrating moisturizer that can be used after various cosmetic procedures such as micro-needling, chemical peels, and laser treatments. It contains a unique blend of hyaluronic acid, PCA, and other nourishing ingredients that help soothe and protect the skin while providing long-lasting hydration.
In this blog post, we'll discuss how to use Oxygenetix Hydro-Matrix moisturizer post-procedure, including sanitation tips, ingredient facts, and best practices.
Oxygenetix Hydro-Matrix contains a variety of skin-loving ingredients, including:
Hyaluronic acid: This powerful humectant helps attract and retain moisture in the skin, leaving it plump and hydrated.
Ceravitae®: Oxygenetix patented Ceravitae® is a peptide complex consisting of Saccharomyces Lysate Cells. Ceravitae® allows oxygen uptake to the skin cells “via osmosis”, providing accelerated skin cellular protection of collagen and elastin thus accelerating wound healing.
Pyrrolidone Carbonic Acid (PCA): PCA is a natural humectant in the skin. This derivative of amino acids is hygroscopic, meaning it absorbs moisture from the air. Antioxidants found in PCA fight off free radicals that can age the skin.
Grape seed extract: Vitus Vinifera (Grape Seed Extract) is an antioxidant which aids in fighting environmental damage done to the skin. It also has soothing properties.
Aloe vera barbadensis: This natural ingredient helps soothe and calm the skin, reducing redness and irritation.
Vitamin E: This antioxidant helps protect the skin from environmental stressors and free radical damage.
Before using Oxygenetix Hydro-Matrix, it's important to sanitize your hands and any tools you'll be using. This helps prevent the spread of bacteria and reduces the risk of infection. To sanitize your hands, wash them thoroughly with soap and warm water for at least 20 seconds. If soap and water aren't available, you can use an alcohol-based hand sanitizer that contains at least 60% alcohol.
If you're using a brush, sponge, or any other tools to apply the moisturizer, make sure they're clean and sanitized. We recommend using gloves or a new sponge immediately post-procedure.
Here are some best practices to follow when using Oxygenetix Hydro-Matrix moisturizer post-procedure:
Follow your dermatologist's or aesthetician's instructions. You can use Hydro-Matrix immediately after most procedures, but make sure to listen to your doctor anyway.
Apply a thin layer of the moisturizer to the procedure area, being careful not to rub or tug at the skin. You can use your fingers or a clean sponge to apply the moisturizer.
Re-apply the moisturizer as needed throughout the day to keep the skin hydrated and comfortable.
Avoid using any other products on the procedure area until it has fully healed, unless instructed otherwise by your dermatologist or esthetician.
Store the moisturizer in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight.
In conclusion, Oxygenetix Hydro-Matrix moisturizer is an excellent choice for post-procedure hydration and skin protection. By following the sanitation tips and best practices outlined in this blog post, you can ensure that your skin stays healthy and hydrated after your cosmetic procedure.
