Regenerating Skin Nectar with TriHex Technology

This product is an antioxidant that contains peptides, arnica and botanicals specifically intended for use before and after cosmetic procedures. As an antioxidant, this product soothes and reduces the appearance of redness on the skin. The arnica ingredient helps with inflammation and clams the skin in order to help and promote healing. Through this formulation, this product also increases your own natural ability to clear out old damaged collagen and elastin due to sun exposure and aging while at the same time help produce new healthy collagen and elastin.

By using Regenerating Skin Nectar two weeks before a procedure, you can precondition and pretreat your skin to clear out old damaged collagen and elastin so that your procedure can be even more effective. After the procedure, this product can help optimize healing and decrease downtime by reducing the appearance of redness, decrease inflammation and promote healing with new collagen and elastin production.

Here at Casas Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, we recommend using this product two weeks before and after the Non-ablative Fractional Laser to better improve the results of your laser treatment.

Testimonials:

“I am a 45 year old who gets the Non-ablative Fractional Laser a few times a year to help with my fine lines and wrinkles. I have seen a great improvement in my post laser care and healing process with the Alastin Nectar! The amount of time I was red and inflamed was cut in half with the help of the Alastin Nectar. I also saw better results and improvement in my skin texture and tone with the combination of the laser and nectar!”

“I am 61 and have been looking for a neck cream that works for many years. After using the Alastin Restorative Neck Complex, I am blow away with the results. My skin is tighter and smoother than it has been in a very long time. The color of my neck also improved and I feel great!”

“I am a 41 year old female who underwent liposuction of my hips and flanks along with an abdominoplasty and I could not be happier with my results. When undergoing my consultation, Dr. Casas had told me about the Alastin TransFORM Body Treatment and how it would improve my results. After my procedures, I started using the TransFORM Body Treatment and I am absolutely amazed by the accelerated healing and overall improvement of my skin quality. I did not expect to have the results I have at such a early stage of my recovery. I am so happy with my results thus far and cannot wait to see how much more I improve with Alastin TransFORM Body Treatment!”
