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 Methodâ€™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 Methodâ„¢ Post-Care System includes:
- Cleanse Gentle Daily Wash
- Soothe HC Healing Moisturizer
- Protect SPF 30 Mineral Sunscreen
â€œAesthetic treatment outcomes are enhanced through application of targeted skincare before and after in-office treatments,â€ says Dr. Alster in a news release. â€œSince I canâ€™t be everyoneâ€™s cosmetic dermatologist, Iâ€™m prepared to share my â€œpractice playbookâ€ in order for more individuals to enjoy clinical success.â€
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 Methodâ„¢ products were introduced at the 38th Annual Meeting of the American Society for Laser Medicine.
