One of my favorite part about esthetics is creating customized treatments for my clients. Matrigen's ampoules are the perfect product for that.
Here are some of our favorite Matrigen cocktails:
Hydra Cellular is a unique formula that can be used alone, or as a base when mixing ampoules together. The main ingredient is distilled lotus flower water which contains remarkable amounts of potent antioxidants, flavonoids, polyphenol, and vitamins.
It's as if these ampoules were made for nano needling; of course, with our Reset Skin System device. This helps deliver the ingredients deeper into the skin, and provides a gentle exfoliation.
We recommend mixing with a little Hydra Cellular for an antioxidant powerhouse, then with a little Vital Intense to encourage cell regeneration.
For clients with acne, we recommend sticking with the Acne-Free ampoule. It's the only truly acne-safe, treatment from the Matrigen ampoule line. With this ampoule, you can nano needle (not over inflamed skin), apply under an acne safe jelly mask so the mask creates a sort of "seal" and aids in penetration, or apply with an iontophoresis device.
Vital Intense contains PDRN, a DNA extracted from the sperm cells of salmon (yes, you read that correctly) and has incredible regenerative properties. Ideal for clients with compromised skin barriers, or those looking to fight signs of aging.
Often, I will mix the Vital Intense with the Hydra Cellular. They're the perfect compliment to one another.
This could also be combined with the new additional to the Matrigen Ampoule fam, the Azulen, to increase the calming factor.
Azulene Relaxer (admittedly a silly name) is packed with Centella Asiatica Leaf Water and Madecassoside to calm the skin. Despite it's beautiful blue color, it's not all about looks. This ampoule can be used alone, or mixed with any of the Vital, Hydra Cellular, or Gluta. If the skin's barrier is healthy, this ampoule can be nano needled into the skin. We recommend, however, applying as a serum, or adding it to a soothing mask. It can also be retailed as a serum.
