In this day and age, many people want to have aesthetic treatments such as a laser, injections, or chemical peels during their lunch break and have their “work” go unnoticed by others. For the most part, many procedures can be performed with little or no downtime. But some aesthetic treatments such as lasers may require some down time due to your post-treatment appearance.

Various skin conditions can be treated through the use of a laser including:

  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Acne scars
  • Rosacea
  • Telangiectasia
  • Sun damage
  • Fine lines
  • Wrinkles

Depending on the type of laser or procedure, your skin may be left somewhat red or bruised anywhere between a few hours to a few days. To help hide your post procedure appearance, we now have a post laser conceal and heal makeup called Oxygenetix.

All About Oxygenetix

Oxygenetix is made with Ceravitae and consists of a breathable oxygen enriched foundation that speeds up skin cell production, clears up skin conditions and helps to minimize scarring. Oxygen is critical for healthy vibrant skin and Oxygenetix allows oxygen uptake for greater healing.  Aloe Vera is utilized instead of a water base to aid in skin resurfacing by sloughing off dead skin. In addition, Oxygenetix offers physical UVA/UVB sunscreen which is vital in all post procedures. 

Most people can apply the makeup post laser or post procedure and continue reapplying it on a daily basis. The foundation is resistant and it will not come off on clothing or in water.

Many of our patients have incorporated Oxygenetix makeup into their everyday routine, even when not recovering from a procedure. This foundation works to camouflage redness, incisions and even scars. Those with rosacea or acne will also benefit. Oxygenetix may be used after a rhinoplasty, facial surgery bruising, scar revision, CO2 laser skin resurfacing, injectables, eyelid surgery, dermabrasion and chemical peels. Oxygenetix provides relief and helps patient look and feel better prior to leaving the office.

This makeup is perfect for sensitive and wounded skin as it provides patients with beautiful, natural, and complete coverage either post procedure or just for everyday wear.
