Pair Nd:YAG Laser + CALECIM® Professional

There was a time when topical products had little importance in the treatment room. Patients paid to receive treatments, and any post-procedure measures were considered secondary — simply add-ons to finish up the main event. These days, physicians know that there is an opportunity to enhance in-clinic treatments immediately after the procedure, as skin in recovery mode is in a prime position to absorb nutrients. Topical products, especially those with effective active ingredients, now play a bigger role in treatment protocols.

Among the most recent breakthroughs in post-procedure advanced skin care is the line of CALECIM® Professional cosmeceuticals. CALECIM® Professional products contain a protein-rich Rejuvenating Conditioned Media derived from umbilical cord lining extract. This formula creates a very powerful healing and rejuvenating environment for skin of any age. When used in conjunction with the Nd:YAG laser, CALECIM® Professional Serum boosts skin healing and the aesthetic results, adding more value and giving more comfort to the patients.

Here’s how it works:

CALECIM® Professional Complements Nd:YAG Laser

One of the handiest lasers in the skin physician’s arsenal is the Nd:YAG, which is able to penetrate deep into the skin. It’s well absorbed by hemoglobin and melanin chromophores, making it particularly effective for treating facial veins, pigmentation, and discoloration. The Nd:YAG laser is also able to heat skin tissue in a non-ablative manner to stimulate new collagen growth while resurfacing the skin and improving moderate wrinkles.

After Nd:YAG, or any controlled trauma to the skin tissue, physicians have applied CALECIM® Professional Serum in-clinic to immediately soothe the skin and boost the body’s natural healing process. To further optimize the results of their procedure, patients should use CALECIM® Professional Multi-action Cream at home in the days that follow to enhance their results.

CALECIM® Professional has already proven its ability to restore epidermal cell turnover time in clinical trials. The line is quickly becoming the physicians’ post-treatment serum of choice due to its undeniable, fast-acting properties. The secret of its effectiveness lies in the cord lining stem cell technology, discovered and patented by CALECIM® Cosmeceuticals’ parent company, CellResearchCorp.

Applying Stem Cell Science to Skin Care

CellResearchCorp has harnessed more than a decade’s experience in cord lining stem cell knowledge and technology to develop CALECIM® Professional cosmeceuticals. Each CALECIM® Professional product has a specified concentration of Rejuvenating Conditioned Media, which contains active stem cell-derived power-proteins and growth factors.

CALECIM® Rejuvenating Conditioned Media is derived from mammalian neonatal umbilical cord lining stem cells. The proteins from these cells are more powerful than those from adult stem cells, and can easily communicate with skin cells in the human body, effectively directing them to repair and regenerate. Hence, they function as youth-messengers, basically telling the skin to act younger.

Boosting The Skin’s Healing Response

The goal of ‘controlled trauma’ procedures is to stimulate the skin into its regenerative cycle, where it responds to the ‘injury’ by actively repairing itself. However, the more we age the fewer regenerative signals our stem cells are able to send. This is why skin doesn’t heal as well or as fast as it once did, whether after normal wounds or after treatments such as Nd:YAG Laser ablation. This is where CALECIM® Professional can help.

By recreating the healing environment of much younger skin, injured skin cells are given stronger signals to repair quickly and effectively. CALECIM® Professional Serum contains a staggering 80% concentration of CALECIM® Rejuvenating Conditioned Media. The active power-proteins in the media communicate instantly with skin cells to jumpstart the healing response, leading to decreased downtime, and more importantly, improved results from the procedure. This is what makes CALECIM® Professional an essential aid for physicians and a synergistic complement to laser treatments such as Nd:YAG.

Using CALECIM® Professional After Nd:YAG Procedure

For treatments using Nd:YAG lasers 532nm and 1064nm wavelengths, CALECIM® Professional Serum should be applied in sequence to each facial aesthetic zone to ensure uniform coverage. Gently massage the full quantity of serum from one ampoule into the skin using small circular motions until it is fully absorbed. For at-home maintenance, the recommended post-procedure standard of care is two ampoules of CALECIM® Professional Serum to be used over the course of four consecutive mornings and nights after a mild cleanser, before applying CALECIM® Multi-Action Cream over the treated area, followed by CALECIM® Restorative Hydration Cream to reduce trans-epidermal water loss.
