Rejuvenating Skin Through Wound Healing Science
Neocutis is a Swiss skin care and pharmaceutical line that harnesses the power of PSP (processed skin cell proteins, a proprietary ingredient). These products are used to promote skin rejuvenation, to provide post-procedural skin care and to provide general care for sensitive or irritated skin.
Each product in this line was developed after research on the unique ability of fetal skin to heal without scarring. This led researchers at the University Hospital of Lausanne to create a process to obtain the rich proteins responsible for this phenomenon. PSP is a blend of proteins including human growth factors and interleukins. These components help reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, improve skin texture and tone, and enhance skin firmness. Because Neocutis PSP is a medical cosmeceutical (and pharmaceutical) product, clinical studies back the product line's efficacy.
My favorite products in this line include:
- Biogel - a unique hydrogel that contains PSP and hyaluronic acid. Restores elasticity and hydrates stressed skin. Ideal for daily anti-aging use on the face, chest and neck for women and men alike.
- Lumiere - a great eye cream for the delicate area around the eyes. Helps reduce the appearance of under eye darkness as well as fine lines and puffiness.
- Nouvelle 6 - one of the newer products in this line, this retinol cream give patients optimal efficacy without irritation. Think of this product as renewing dull skin and photoaging and a staple for patients no matter their age.
- Blanche - ideal for patients looking to lighten dark spots; contains hydroquinone (4%) as well as Melaplex (a formulation of rich antioxidants and skin brighteners!) Results can be seen in as little as 4 weeks.
- Hyalis - this formulation of hyaluronate sodium (1%) is the highest concentration available. Great for postprocedural use to smooth and plump skin.
- Perle - a hydroquinone-free alternative to improve uneven skin tone. Contains shea buter, jojoba oil and antioxidant vitamins C and E.
Remember, proper skin care is a must for everyone! Neocutis offers a great array of anti-aging products that are safe for even the most sensitive skin.
