In a recent study by The Journal of Clinical and Aesthetic Dermatology (JCAD) the Colorescience Finishing Touch Protocol, comprised of several of their flagship products developed for use after minimally invasive facial procedures, has been shown to be highly effective in reducing post-treatment recovery time and improving final results. Most subjects (97%) observed improvements in skin redness and/or treatment site marks, felt more confident (90%) and were very or extremely comfortable resuming normal activities (86%).
In particular, the study focused on microneedling with radio frequency (RF), also known as collagen induction therapy, a common dermal therapy that utilizes devices that penetrate the dermis to a uniform depth, creating a controlled skin injury. This injury induces rapidly healing micro-punctures with subsequent stimulation of collagen and elastin production, resulting in skin remodeling and rejuvenation.
After four weeks of using the Colorescience Finishing Touch Protocol products, most subjects reported their skin
felt younger and healthier (94%), were more confident about repeating their procedure (94%) and would continue using their skincare as part of their daily routine (94%). Most subjects (97%) thought the skincare protocol made their skin look better after the procedure. All subjects (100%) reported applying the skincare products at home was easy and most (96%) believed continued use of the products at home made their skin look and feel rejuvenated.
Their conclusion: “A skincare protocol has been developed for use following facial radiofrequency microneedling procedures. When applied immediately following the procedure, it increases subject confidence to resume normal activities, comfort, camouflage, overall treatment satisfaction and likelihood to undergo retreatment while providing essential mineral SPF, HEV and pollution protection. This skincare protocol may also be suitable for use following other minimally-invasive facial procedures.”
