Developed specifically as a treatment following laser
resurfacing, chemical peels, AHA products, abrasive facial
scrubs and intensive therapy for dry, sensitive or irritated
Lipid Recovery Serum (LRS) is a fragrance-free and preservative-free complex of
plant derived lipids, a plant derived anti-inflammatory
agent, nutritional and moisturizing agents in a clear,
nonirritating emollient base. It reduces redness and
inflammation, calms, moisturizes, improves tone/elasticity
and reinforces skin that has been damaged by natural or
LRS contains human identical, plant derived Sphingolipids.
Sphingolipids compose 49% of the lipids in the stratum
corneum of human skin, and are thus the major structural
lipids in the lipid barrier. An intact lipid barrier is
necessary for optimal cell function and for preventing
disease-causing agents from penetrating into the dermis.
Replacement of damaged or lost sphingolipids is essential to
maintaining skin health and reduction of TEWL (Transepidermal
Water Loss). LRS contains Vitamin E Linoleate which is a
major source of Vitamin E and Linoleic Acid, the main EFA
(Essential Fatty Acid) in skin useful for moisturization.
Vitamin E Linoleate has excellent antioxidant abilities,
helping to “trap” free radicals which can cause epidermal
damage and impair cellular integrity.
LRS contains naturally derived Peroxidized Corn Oil, which
is a potent antiinflammatory and analgesic agent. In
clinical studies, significant diminution of erythema was
observed after 48 hours of use. It also was determined to be
effective in reducing itching and burning of irritated skin.
All these ingredients are contained in a nonirritating, skin
tolerant Polymer Matrix which is derived from chemically
modified silica, a natural matrix. This matrix provides a
barrier to water evaporation from skin but does not
interfere with normal skin respiration.
LRS has the
unique ability to create a hydrating effect in skin, which
can reduce fine lines and lessen the appearance of wrinkles. LRS does this even though it contains no water in the
formulation. It increases the skin’s intrinsic moisture, not like a typical cream or lotion
contains water and only temporarily hydrates the skin. It
repairs the lipid barrier in the skin so that it can hold
more water, improving skin cell function and improving skin
LRS has been specifically formulated as a post treatment
following: Laser Resurfacing, Dermabrasion, Chemical Peel
(e.g. Glycolic), Facial Scrubs, Facial Waxing. It may also
be used for the treatment of dry, weathered and irritated
skin and for treatment of wrinkles and fine lines,
particularly around the eye area. Ideal for any sensitive skin condition such as Rosacea.
Sold in a concentrated ampoule form. Each ampoule
contains 350 mg of Lipid Recovery Serum, enough for one
application to face and neck.
