Many clients who have undergone laser resurfacing, chemical peels and other procedures, wherein their skin is left raw and unprotected, will tell you the petroleum-based occlusive products (such as the traditional Aquaphor) used in post-procedure skin care are a huge turn off. These products leave your skin looking ‘greased’ and cannot be used with cosmetics, and while creating a protective barrier against environmental irritants, do not really help with recovery. With new advancements in skin care technology, Jan Marini Skin Research has launched a breakthrough silicone-based, non-petrolatum product for post-procedure protection and repair.
Marini BioShield is a patent-pending formulation, which combines targeted growth factors, peptides and hydrators to speed recovery, reduce downtime and enhance treatment results. It is the result of over two years of development with over ten different physician offices to create an advanced post-procedure product. The product’s near-invisible matte finish significantly increases user satisfaction by greatly lessening the social impact common to post-procedure recovery. Gone is the slick red and blotchy skin, and in its place is a softer, less raw appearance.
Applied liberally to the affected area, in long smooth motions, creating a uniform barrier over the skin, Marini BioShield sets to a matte finish in minutes. Once dry, light cosmetics can be applied over this barrier, which was impossible when using petroleum products. Marini BioShield can and should be applied to affected areas several times each day. Care should be given to clean the affected area with clean water to remove all BioShield before reapplication.
Aside from its clinical uses, Marini BioShield has other applications for makeup artists. Used recently during a photo shoot with an actor who had gotten a sun burn, BioShield allowed the makeup artist to apply cosmetics to the burned areas and provide adequate coverage without further irritating the skin.
