Visiting an experienced med spa or skin clinic for a customized skin procedure is great for rejuvenating your skin and finding renewed radiance. However, depending on your personalized course of treatment, it can also be especially important to be a bit cautious in the following first few weeks after an in-clinic treatment or procedure. Particularly for more intensive or invasive procedures, pampering and babying your skin for at least two weeks following your appointment will help you get the most from your procedure and mitigate any temporary side effects, allowing your skin to heal and strengthen. To complement the cutting- edge skincare technologies offered at the med spa, TheSkinSol also offers a curated range of skincare products chosen for their effectiveness and compatibility with skin post- procedure.

The Histolab Brand
Histolab is a Korean skincare brand used and available at over 6,000 dermatology and cosmetic skin clinics worldwide. They offer a range of hypoallergenic, clinical-grade skincare products with a focus on plant-derived ingredients which are effective to both protect and revitalize the skin.
Research on extracts from plant stem cells indicates that this ingredient appears to have a potent antioxidant and anti-inflammatory effect and can promote the production of new collagen. To best harness the promise of this ingredient for skincare, Histolab developed a special encapsulation technology that is used in their products to protect this effective but delicate ingredient and allow it to be delivered and released for use when absorbed through the skin.
Histolab’s patented Skin Regeneration Growth Factor Histolab First (SRGF H1) Complex is made up of peptides and growth factors to provide skin regeneration and soothing effects, focusing on soothing the skin from external irritation and improving skin elasticity and overall health. The SRGF H1 Complex is created using plant stem cell extracts derived from tomato and rice plants.
In addition to their star plant stem cell extract complex and across their product lines, Histolab products focus on the science behind the ingredients and incorporate effective and innovative skincare technologies to offer gentle yet highly effective skincare formulas.
Histolab Enzyme Powder Wash
Histolab’s Enzyme Powder Wash is part of their Basic Science line, which focuses on professional skincare formulas that are hypoallergenic and nutrition-rich. These products have been formulated to be suitable for all skin types. They are based on a combination of Histolab’s patented growth factor complex, bio-placenta rejuvenating complex, Phytosterol, and Argireline. Phytosterol is an emollient ingredient with skin-replenishing and skin-soothing
benefits, helping to keep skin supple and pliant. At the same time, Argireline both promotes collagen production and optimizes its function, helping to improve moisture levels in the skin and combating the appearance of fine lines.
As a first step, the Histolab Enzyme Powder Wash is a mild enzyme powder cleanser that will gently remove dead skin cells and clear away impurities while keeping your skin hydrated. It works as an excellent weekly deep cleanser and can help prep your skin to best absorb the skin- beneficial ingredients from the rest of your skincare routine. This gentle cleanser contains fruit enzymes for gentle exfoliation and clearing of blackheads: papain, derived from unripe papaya fruit, and bromelain, found in pineapple juice and stems. The Histolab Enzyme Powder Wash also contains allantoin, which in addition to its soothing and anti-irritant properties can also enhance the shedding of the upper layers of dead skin cells, and cornstarch, which softens the skin and also helps to remove dead skin cells.
The Histolab Enzyme Powder Wash’s dry powder formula makes it an excellent option for when you need to pack your skincare for a trip. To use, pour one teaspoon of powder into the palm of your hand and mix it with a small amount of water, rubbing your hands together to produce a soft foam. Apply the foam to your face and massage for approximately ten seconds before rinsing with lukewarm water. Those with oily and acne-prone skin can focus application around the t-zone and other acne-prone areas for more targeted cleansing.
Histolab’s DERMA SCIENCE Line
Histolab’s DERMA SCIENCE line has been specifically designed to be suitable for skin that may be a bit sensitive following laser treatment. These products incorporate a combination of plant stem cells, kinetin, niacinamide, panthenol, and plant extracts like portulaca oleracea or purslane extract for their restorative properties and ability to defend sensitive skin from stress, UV rays, and free radicals during the recovery process.
One of the four ampoules from this line, the Histolab EGF Complex Ampoule 50, is one of the top ten most popular products from Histolab according to both GLOWPICK and Hwahae, two famous Korean-language beauty product ranking and review sites. This ampoule contains 50% of epidermal growth factor (EGF) complex, combined with Histolab’s patented plant stem cell extract complex and adenosine for its anti-wrinkle properties. Adenosine is a compound naturally found in the body, while the adenosine used in skincare formulations is derived from yeast. It plays a vital role in the natural functioning of our skin and in supporting the wound healing process, in addition to its anti-aging benefits.
The Histolab EGF Complex Ampoule focuses on wrinkle care and skin elasticity, soothing and restoring the skin while also promoting elasticity and smoothing and energizing the skin’s surface. Because of these properties, this ampoule is an excellent complement to skin rejuvenating procedures received in the clinic and can also help in post-procedure recovery. It
can be found as the ampoule step in Histolab’s AGE SCIENCE set, a five-step skincare routine that focuses on restoring skin vitality, skin rejuvenation, and decelerating and well-aging. The Histolab EGF Complex Ampoule, like the other ampoules in the DERMA SCIENCE line, are also available infused in sheet masks for those looking for the benefits of the ampoule in an alternate, pampering format.
