A is for the A Method, a new pre- and post-procedure skincare line from Tina Alster, MD the founding director of the Washington Institute of Dermatologic Laser Surgery and Clinical Professor at Georgetown University in Washington, DC.
The A Method’s Post-Care System accompanies non-invasive office procedures such as microneedling, nonablative laser skin treatments, and chemical peels. The at-home regimen boosts clinical results and its simplicity enhances patient compliance which is critical to any skincare plan.
The A Method™ Post-Care System includes:
- Cleanse Gentle Daily Wash
- Soothe HC Healing Moisturizer
- Protect SPF 30 Mineral Sunscreen
“Aesthetic treatment outcomes are enhanced through application of targeted skincare before and after in-office treatments,” says Dr. Alster in a news release. “Since I can’t be everyone’s cosmetic dermatologist, I’m prepared to share my “practice playbook” in order for more individuals to enjoy clinical success.”
The Cleanse Gentle Daily Cleanser is rich in glycerin, hyaluronic acid, and avocado oil. Protect SPF 30 is a 100% mineral sunscreen blended with antioxidants that offers broad-spectrum UV protection, and Soothe HC features both arnica and 1% hydrocortisone to reduce swelling, discomfort and bruising following noninvasive cosmetic procedures. The products are offered individually as well as in a three-product pre- and post procedure kit. They are free of gluten, fragrance, colorants and parabens.
The A Method™ products were introduced at the 38th Annual Meeting of the American Society for Laser Medicine.
