Enter to Win an Age-Defying Laser + Antioxidant System Spa Week Editor All Stories, Beauty, Skin 10 Comments This December we’ve teamed with SkinCeuticals to give one lucky winner their Age-Defying Laser + Antioxidant System. The revolutionary set includes the brand’s famous antioxidants C E Ferulic and Resveratrol B E along with Tria’s Age-Defying Laser. To learn exactly why this system is so effective at reversing the aging process, I spoke with SkinCeuticals US General Manager, Brenda Wu and Global General Manager, Leslie Harris. I also tested out the kit for myself to see if it delivered on all of its promises. Check out everything you need to know about the Age-Defying Laser + Antioxidant System and enter to win it below. SkinCeuticals and Tria have combined forces to create the Age-Defying Laser + Antioxidant System, a kit that might possibly be the holy grail when it comes to turning back the hands of time. The three piece set combines Tria’s Age-Defying laser with two of Skinceuticals’ most powerful antioxidants, C E Ferulic and Resveratrol B E. Used together, these products promise to dramatically reduce all the major signs of aging including wrinkles and fine lines while improving skin’s luminosity and overall complexion. If used five days a week, professional results can be seen in as little as two weeks. Naturally, as a hardcore skincare nerd, I jumped at the chance to try out the system and learn just what makes it so effective. Let’s start with the 411 on antioxidants. Considered by many to be liquid gold, antioxidants work to protect skin against environmental factors that generate damaging free radicals and prematurely age skin. The sources of damaging free radicals are unavoidable. These include UV rays, infrared radiation, pollution, and certain lifestyle choices. One of the most effective antioxidants is vitamin C, and SkinCeuticals was at the forefront of bringing this knowledge to light when they came onto the scene in 1994. That’s why their antioxidants are some of the best in the skincare game. C E Ferulic has been considered the number one vitamin C-rich product by beauty editors for more than a decade. While there have been plenty of copycats in the industry, no other skincare brands have been able to touch SkinCeuticals’ formula. According to the brand’s Global General Manager, Leslie Harris, the main reasons for the effectiveness and popularity of this product are that its ingredients are not just pure, but they have also been perfectly formulated to deliver the best results.“The synergy of the ingredients C, E, and Ferulic offers more antioxidant protection than any one ingredient alone. C and E work together and Ferulic acid stabilizes vitamin C. You have three ingredients that offer strong antioxidant protection in a streamlined and straightforward way,” she tells me. Also included in the Age-Defying Laser System is SkinCeuticals’ intensive antioxidant night concentrate, Resveratrol B E. “This product helps to boost skin’s internal antioxidant defense system to help with its natural repair,” SkinCeuticals’ US General Manager, Brenda Wu explains. “It combines a maximized concentration of 1% pure, stable resveratrol, the highest level on the market today, which is enhanced with baicalin and vitamin E to boost skin’s antioxidant defense.” To put it in layman’s terms, this comforting gel makes skin more radiant and boosts its elasticity while offering up protection from inevitable free radicals Used on their own, both of these work to erase the signs of aging and enhance skin’s complexion while protecting it from further damage. So what makes them perfectly paired with Tria’s Age-Defying Laser? “Through our research, we learned that when combined, laser treatments and C E Ferulic work synergistically to improve the appearance of skin,” Wu tells me. “When used post-laser, C E Ferulic and Resveratrol B E soothe and comfort skin, while promoting its natural repair.” I’ve been using the Age-Defying Laser + Antioxidant System for a few weeks and I’ve seen a massive improvement in my complexion. As a skincare junkie who gets a lot of professional laser treatments, I was skeptical of at-home laser use at first because I wasn’t sure I really believed it could be effective. However, as a massive fan of SkinCeuticals, I know the high level of research and science they put into all of their products. I also know how committed they are to providing their customers with the most effective products on the market. I figured if Tria’s Age-Defying Laser was SkinCeuticals-approved it most likely lived up to the hype. Created by Tria in collaboration with dermatologists and plastic surgeons, the Age-Defying Laser uses the exact same technology as professional in-office treatments. This is clinically known as “fractional non-ablative laser treatments”. It uses targeted beams of light to work below the skin’s surface. This accelerates natural collagen and elastin production to make skin visibly younger, clearer, and more radiant. Adding the use of the laser to your routine is simple. I suggest doing it at night because it can leave skin a little red and irritated. First, simply cleanse and dry your face thoroughly. Then turn the laser to the appropriate setting and place it flat against your skin. The laser will automatically begin to work as you glide it from side to side over each area of your face. Once each section is complete you’ll hear a beep. When the entire treatment is done the laser actually plays a little victory song. To get the best results, Wu tells me the Tria laser should be used five days a week for 12 weeks. “You should be applying the C E Ferulic every morning after cleanser and before sunscreen and the Resveratrol B E every night after cleansing and before applying a moisturizer,” she continues. The Age-Defying Laser has three levels of intensity. When first getting started it’s best to begin your treatments on the lowest level and then work your way up. The first few times I used the laser it was slightly uncomfortable, but it didn’t hurt. It felt like small, continual flashes of heat. When I initially started using the laser my skin did become flushed and inflamed immediately after use, but it was back to normal by the morning so there was absolutely no down time. Even though it’s only been a handful of weeks, I’ve been extremely impressed with the results of the Age-Defying Laser + Antioxidant System. With regular use my complexion has been more radiant and refreshed than ever. Not only that, but I have seen a significant decrease in fine lines and my skin’s texture has greatly improved. Needless to say, this beauty editor gives SkinCeuticals’ amazing system two perfectly polished thumbs up.
