Semi-ablative skin procedures initiate an inflammatory response, increase transepidermal water loss (TEWL) and may have potential for environmental contamination. Many practitioners rely on occlusive products based on petroleum jelly (e.g. Aquafor) during recovery. Unfortunately, these products are inert and do not offer any healing but instead act solely as a barrier. Venus Skin™’s Bio Cel offers a superior alternative, one uniquely suited for such procedures.
Quenching inflammation is important in promoting rapid comfortable recovery while simultaneously reducing chances of inflammation related sequelae such as hyperpigmentation and fibrosis. Bio Cel Occlusive Gel contains recombinant TGFbeta 3, clinically proven ingredients that tend to suppress inflammation following controlled traumatic injury of the skin. Hydrogen orthoborate provides additional anti-inflammatory as well as analgesic and bacteriostatic effects. Fully hydrated hyaluronic acid provides a moisturizing barrier function that prevents tissue desiccation while promoting healing.
Directions for Use:
Use immediately post any ablative, fractional or laser treatment. Apply as often as needed throughout the day to the procedure treatment area using fingertips. Product is not meant to be rubbed into the skin but used to create an occlusive barrier that protects and promotes healing.
