SkinCeuticals Epidermal Repair (6 tubes) Travel Samples
For Compromised, Sensitive or Dry Skin
On a daily basis, the skin's barrier is exposed to a variety of insults
- both voluntary and involuntary - that can compromise its integrity
due to partial or complete denuding of the epidermis. EPIDERMAL REPAIR
is specifically formulated for skin recovering from cosmetic procedures
ranging from microdermabrasion to laser resurfacing, as well as skin
sensitized by retinoid therapy or harsh environmental aggressors. This
therapeutic treatment contains a pure concentrated form of two highly
effective, proven healing ingredients to help relieve and rehabilitate
compromised skin. Beta Glucan and Centella Asiatica provide barrier
protection for traumatized skin while accelerating the biological
process involved in skin healing. EPIDERMAL REPAIR is clinically shown
to greatly diminish redness and soothe irritated skin while the
cosmetically elegant texture encourages daily use, especially during
the critical healing period following rejuvenating procedures.
Our skin is exposed to a variety of insults that can cause irritation,
skin barrier disruptions and, in more acute cases, wounding due to
partial or complete denuding of the epidermis. Barrier defects are most
often caused by environmental chemicals, AHA and retinoid treatments,
soaps and surfactants, exposure to very acidic pH levels, and much
more. Wounding or tissue injuries can be the result of involuntary
actions such as cuts or scrapes, or voluntary actions such as chemical
peels or ablative procedures. By re-establishing the balance of lipids,
fatty acids, and cholesterol that make up the barrier, disruptions in
the skin barrier system can be effectively remedied. More time however
is required for wound healing, which involves a complex and very
specific cascade of cellular events that result in resurfacing,
reconstitution, and restoration of the skin and its tensile strength.
Unprecedented 0.5% concentration of pure water-soluble beta glucan granulate (beta -1,3- glucan)
> helps wound repair by stimulating tissue granulation, collagen
deposition, and re-epithelialization, while increasing the tensile
strength of the recovered wounds
> high purity of ingredient maximizes performance
Titrated extract of centella asiatica
> intensifies the known healing and collagen-stimulating effect
inherent to the centella asiatica plant with its purified actives -
asiatic acid, madecassic acid, and asiaticoside
Anti-irritant ingredients - sodium palmitoyl proline and nymphaea alba flower extract
> calm skin's reaction to mechanical/chemical insults
Light-weight, film-forming base
> allows accelerated barrier recovery without occluding the skin
> encourages increased patient compliance during the healing process
> skin traumatized by cosmetic procedures
> skin suffering from irritation due to exposure to environmental aggressors
> sensitive skin
> skin experiencing dryness from conditions such as dermatitis or psoriasis
> protocols: Gel Peel, Pre and Post Procedure: IPL, Pre and Post Procedure: Fraxel
Usage & Regimes
Apply a thin, even veil to the entire face or affected areas and
massage very lightly for approximately 5 to 10 seconds. Re-apply as
often as needed to keep skin feeling moist. Note: Can be applied
immediately following procedures such as microdermabrasion, chemical
peels, and IPL. Usage following sensitizing procedures such as laser
resurfacing should be directed by the treating physician and/or skin
Beta Glucan (Beta -1, 3- glucan) Beta glucans originate in the outer
cell wall of fungi such as yeast and mushrooms, and also in oats and
barley. They are polysaccharides that consist of many (poly)
specifically arranged glucose molecules (saccharides) with side chains.
The biological activity of glucans is dependent on the specific
arrangement which can be identified in the detailed nomenclature, i.e.
Modulates wound healing: Beta glucan binds to receptor sites and
enhances the function of macrophages (cells that originate from
specific white blood cells) that migrate into any wound environment to
initiate the healing process by stimulating tissue granulation,
collagen deposition, re-epithelialization, and tensile strength.
Strengthens the skin's self protection mechanism: Epidermal Langerhans
cells play a key role in the skin's immune response to pathogens.
Langerhans cells are macrophages and as such have glucan receptor
sites, protecting them against depletion, and improving their function.
Helps prevents infections: Bea-1, 3-glucan helps elicit broad
anti-infective effects by initiating macrophage release of cytokines
and interleukins (short-lived proteins that are released by one cell to
direct the function of another cell).
Accelerates renewal rate of stratum corneum: The beta-1, 3-glucan used
in EPIDERMAL REPAIR was shown to promote the rate of cell renewal in
the skin. In skin treated with beta-1-3-glucan, the renewal rate was
30% greater than in untreated skin, thereby supporting both the
post-procedure recovery of skin, as well assisting in maintaining the
Titrated Extract of Centella Asiatica
Stimulates the synthesis of types I and III collagen by fibroblasts.
Types I and III collagen are those found predominantly in skin.
Prevents the excessive proliferation of connective tissue (keloids, hypertrophic scars).
Creates a hostile environment for bacteria and fungi.
Protects sensitive skin against harmful factors (anti-irritant) and
improves the tolerance to possible associated active ingredients (e.g.
Sodium Palmitoyl Proline and Nymphaea Alba Flower Extract
Soothe skin and reduce discomfort sensations such as stinging and
erythema that can occur when skin is exposed to environmental
chemicals, surfactants, or sensitizing ingredients such as AHA's or
Combat the the production of pro-inflammatory mediators, a biological reaction in the event of trauma to the skin.
Improve the natural defense processes of the skin by delivering lipids and amino acid.
