Boosting Laser Results with Topical Treatments

The February 2013 issue of Marie Claire magazine reports on the use of topical skin treatments to improve the results of cosmetic laser patients. Epione Beverly Hills’ Simon Ourian, M.D. explores and comments on this development.


Boosting Laser Results with Topical Treatments

I’ve been working with cosmetic lasers for more than a decade, and the progress we’ve made over that time is astonishing.

There is seemingly no limit to the amount of money one can spend on elixirs and creams to treat the skin. But no matter the cost, these products have one common hurdle to surmount before they can be effective: penetrating the skin so that they can be properly absorbed.

“At Epione, I use lasers for stretch mark removal and a few years ago we started applying an activator to the skin prior to lasering and the improvement in results is apparent. I’ve also developed a post-treatment cream for my stretch mark removal and laser skin resurfacing patients to use post-treatment.”

“Sometimes magazines like Marie Claire pick up on the latest crazes in cosmetic medicine, fads really, with stories about the newest device that’s going to ‘revolutionize’ the industry. Unfortunately the device often doesn’t live up to the hype. But this story hits the nail right on the head. Every day in my practice we use topical creams to enhance the results of the laser treatments we offer.”

“I’ve been working with cosmetic lasers for more than a decade,” says Dr. Ourian, “and the progress we’ve made over that time is astonishing.” Dr. Ourian goes on to explain that he’s been using various lasers to treat a myriad of skin conditions on the body and the face and that he began formulating creams to enhance the benefits of these treatments years ago.

Another ingredient touted in the article is growth factor. The idea is that growth factor can repair damaged DNA, elastin, and collagen and support the propagation of new skin cells. “I’ve been a proponent of growth factors for some time,” says Dr. Ourian, “I’ve included them in my Signature Series line of skin care products.”
