With the emphasis consistently being on the amount or lack of ‘downtime’ necessary after a peel treatment, we’ve introduced a new term to the industry, which is 'uptime'
San Diego, Calif. (PRWEB) October 30, 2014
High efficacy and low irritation are no longer mutually exclusive concepts in the medical-grade skin care domain: Cosmederm, the specialty biotechnology company focusing on the development of uniquely potent topical dermatological products, today announces the launch of Refinity® Skin Health System (http://www.RefinitySkinScience.com) with patented COSMEDERM®-7 anti-irritant technology.
Formulated with the highest available glycolic acid concentrations (50% and 70%) and a low pH (pH 1.2 and pH 0.6), the Refinity Skin Health System delivers a first-of-its-kind peel experience, for all skin types, with high potency and minimal irritation or ‘downtime.’
The COSMEDERM-7 original technology is derived from the safe, naturally occurring element strontium and has been proven in scientific studies to inhibit the sensations of stinging, itching and burning of the skin, both during and after treatments. The proprietary formula virtually eliminates the need for prior treatments or “step up” processes, and allows for the use of the highest concentration (professionally administered) AHA’s for more effective anti-aging skin benefits.
“With the emphasis consistently being on the amount or lack of ‘downtime’ necessary after a peel treatment, we’ve introduced a new term to the industry, which is ‘uptime,’” said VP of Marketing for Cosmederm Bioscience, Ramin Eghbali. “The ‘uptime’ state of being is meant to summarize the patient’s maximum ability to be up and on the go, right away—the free time to accomplish anything immediately after a powerful, but very well tolerated, Refinity peel treatment. Any medical aesthetician knows they can decrease ‘downtime’ by decreasing the effectiveness of a peel; Refinity is redefining this dated assumption by providing proven, powerful efficacy with little to no irritation, and are introducing it to Southern California med spas and physician offices this fall.”
For consumers who have never been candidates for AHA therapy due to skin sensitivity or skin type (IV-VI), Refinity is clinically proven to deliver optimal strength and efficacy, with little to no risk of post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation (PIH). In addition, even at this high level of potency, the Refinity peel can be administered as early as every two weeks, given its tolerability profile, with Refinity Home Product use in between.
The glycolic acid in the Refinity peel is untouched, un-buffered and un-neutralized which gives the consumer the highest level of efficacy with maximum uptime. The Home Care products have 15% lactic acid, also untouched, un-buffered and un-neutralized with no irritation. With Refinity Skin Health System, there have been no reported cases of PIH in test markets worldwide.
“Our family of patented analgesic and anti-inflammatory compounds has led to the development of uniquely effective products that have undergone years of laboratory and clinical testing,” said Refinity’s Chief Scientific Officer and Founder, Dr. Gary Hahn, MD.
The combination of the regenerating peels and the Refinity Daily Home Care regimen with COSMEDERM-7 technology maintains the benefits by helping to soothe skin in the days following a peel treatment. The Refinity Skin Health System has been tested to showcase the following benefits:
- High potency peel and home care with little to no irritation: Maximum Uptime
- Appropriate for all skin types: color, tone, texture
- No reports of PIH
- No need to sacrifice efficacy for tolerability
- No need to sacrifice tolerability for efficacy
