Our rituals

You are planning to have a peeling1 or laser2 treatment and you would like to prepare your skin in order to optimise the results? Or, you have already granted yourself a treatment, but while waiting to be able to admire the results, you would like to soothe your skin and get rid of the redness that has surfaced? What if you used skincare products specifically designed to protect your skin and reduce downtime in order to get back to normal faster?

What the expert says

“Using specific skincare products suitable pre- and post-procedure is vital when one has had a peeling1 or laser2 treatment. Before the aesthetic procedure, this will indeed prepare the skin. Post procedure, it is recommended that you apply a repairing/extra-soothing cream until all the redness and desquamation have ceased to help the skin repair process and soothe the skin; then, use an anti-ageing specifically designed skin care to maximise the effects of the peeling or laser treatment. Finally, it is strongly advised that after the procedure, you use a product with a high sun protection factor to avoid all post-intervention hyperpigmentation.”

All our beauty tips when you are having a peeling1 or laser2 treatment

Our skin care solution

Before and 7 days just after your injection

For 1 month before your peeling1 or laser2 treatment:

In the morning, apply the Extra-Soothing Protecting Cream RoC® PRO-PROTECT. Its formula is rich in Feverfew, a chamomile extract with soothing properties, and contains protective UV filters (SPF50) to help prepare your skin by soothing it and minimising the risk of hyperpigmentation. Reapply as necessary.

For a minimum of 7 days, just after your peeling1 or laser2 treatment:

It is important to continue protecting your skin just after a peeling or a laser treatment. Continue combining comfort and high protection with RoC® PRO-PROTECT Extra-Soothing Protecting Cream. This cream immediately and significantly reduces the stinging sensations that can be felt after an aesthetic procedure, whilst lowering risk of photo-damage thanks to its SPF 50 and helping to prevent the risk of post-procedural-related hyper-pigmentation.

Its velvety texture makes it very pleasant to use, even for the most sensitive skins.

Don’t hesitate to reapply as many times as necessary.

2 to 4 times a day, apply RoC® PRO-CICA Extra-Repairing Recovery Balm. This balm, enriched in zinc and hyaluronic acid, accelerates skin reparation, improves skin quality, immediately soothes and helps reduce downtime.

As from 7 days after your treatment

In the morning:

  1. Gently wash your face without over-drying your skin with the Extra-Gentle Wash-Off Cleanser RoC® PRO-CLEANSE, a hypoallergenic3 formula, without soap nor fragrance and Ph neutral for the skin.
  2. Continue protecting your skin for 1 to 2 months with RoC® PRO-PROTECT Extra-Soothing Protecting Cream.

In the morning and in the evening:

    To help maintain the effects of peeling1 or laser2 treatment, use morning and evening the Anti-Ageing Unifying Cream RoC® PRO-RENOVE, by renewing skin tone and texture and preventing dark spots. Day after day, your skin complexion is unified and brightened.
    If you prefer light textures, opt for the Anti-Ageing Unifying Fluid RoC® PRO-RENOVE and enjoy the same results as for the cream.

Our lifestyle tips

styles de vie

  • Do I do it or not?

    An aesthetic procedure is not an ordinary act. You have to address yourself to the right professionals.

    No way to look like a wax doll or that everyone realizes we got a little extra help!

    Don’t hesitate making an appointment with your dermatologist or aesthetic physician, his professional diagnosis and expertise will answer all your questions!

    Beware of this ‘false friend!’  Despite its warm and friendly ways, the sun is actually one of the worst enemies of our youthfulness.  

  • Protect yourself and take action against sun

    Besides the risk of skin cancer, it also causes premature skin ageing and brown spots. If you are trying to keep an even complexion, avoid over-exposing yourself to the sun and combat photo-ageing by protecting your face all year round with an appropriate sun protection factor, not only during summertime but also on sunny days in autumn and winter, and as from spring with a sun protection factor of at least 30 and of 50 in summer!

    For skin that already has brown spots, greater protection is all the more necessary.

    Choose RoC® Soleil-Protect Anti-Brown Spot Unifying Fluid SPF 50+ which has been developed to visibly reduce brown spots and improve the evenness of skin, whilst providing it a very high protection to protect its youthful appearance.

  • Hydrate yourself

    Did you know that skin which lacks water gets to wrinkle sooner? A good water supply promotes the sound functioning of the skin cell processes and helps you keep a supple and elastic skin, longer.  So drink at least 1.5l of water per day. You can also enjoy drinking infusions of green tea, with anti-oxidant properties, or of centalla (centalla asiatica which you will find in pharmacies or at a herbalist) which stimulates the production of collagen.
