I was astounded when I found a website that promotes slathering on liquid foundation post laser skin peel (fractional ablative resurfacing). I would never dream of putting makeup on freshly lasered skin, but the concept was very appealing. I imagined the swarms of beautiful girls leaving my treatment room with gorgeous glowing skin instead of flaming red and goopy with Aquaphore. I promptly called the company and began trials with my post peel clients. They were completely astounded by how the foundation cooled their skin down and covered every trace that they had just gone under the laser! The foundation is called Oxygenetix and is an aloe vera based liquid foundation that covers like a breathable second skin. Sensitive skin loves this light weight calming product and it is perfectly safe and even healing after procedures such as resurfacing, microdermabrasion, and FotoFacials. Most of my clients become addicted to this foundation and continue to use it after they have healed from their procedures. It gives the prettiest soft glow you can get from a bottle, and despite being used as a camouflage makeup, is very light weight and virtually flawless.
Immediately post Pixel skin resurfacing.
Don’t let the fear of down time and having to hide after your laser treatment keep you from aging sexy! Get your gorgeous paws on Oxygenetix before going under the beam.

You can Botox that gorgeous face till the cows come home, but you won’t see those static lines going away anytime soon. Static lines are the squirly little fine lines that are visible when you aren’t using your muscles to make a facial expression. They typically show up in your 30s but can grace you with their presence as early as your twenties. There is no reason to wave that white flag when you start seeing these feisty lines of fury. Enter the big guns. With the invention of tretinoin, chemical peels, and fractionated resurfacing, those babies don’t stand a chance! When deciding which strong arm to bring into the rink against fine lines, you have to keep your schedule in mind. Not every resurfacing method is created equal when it comes to beauty down time. Tretinoin is a cream that resurfaces slowly over time. You may have some minor flaking, but no real down time. Chemical peels take about 3-5 to run their course of shedding. You will have anywhere from light flaking to peeling like a snake depending on your peel choice. Then finally there is the laser peel with fractionated resurfacing. Enter the Pixel. The Pixel resurfaces the skin by lasering tiny channels into the skin leaving a majority of the skin untouched and healthy. Beauty down time is only about 3-4 days, and you get the benefits of stopping those fine lines, dark spots, and loose skin in only 2-3 treatments.
