Colorescience Finishing Touch Protocol


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.”

Excellent service and an overall pleasant experience. Victoria was professional and knowledgeable. She proposed treatments addressing both my anesthetic and medical concerns.. I could not be happier with the results. Also, the Receptionist, Mattie, was pleasant and efficient. I look forward to future treatments.

Hayes Valley is the best! Kate did an incredible job with Dysport removing the wrinkles from my forehead, Sandra gave me great abs and glutes with Emsculpt, and Linda gave me my youthful facial structure back with Sculptra. These women are truly amazing. So glad that I found them!

I love Hayes Valley Medical and Esthetics! I've been coming for a while now for Botox and filler treatments. Linda is AMAZING! She knows just the right amount of product needed in all the right places to bring out my best facial features. I feel more handsome every time!!

The front desk staff are super sweet and helpful. They always ask exactly what I want and I never feel like I'm being 'upsold' or encouraged to do anything other than what I came in for. I would highly recommend HVME to anybody that is on the unsure about trying some of the services they offer. You won't be disappointed. Thank you!!

Sheila and Linda took great care of me and I look younger and vibrant.  I do not trust anyone else for injectables.  Linda is careful, thoughtful, and respectful of one’s budget. I have followed her from Marin into SF and I will continue to follow her where ever she practices.
