Let’s Talk About Layering PLLA Products
Now that clients are getting the Facial Filler Mask treatment, here’s the protocol for layering PLLA products.
For daily use…
Start with clean skin and begin with Caviplla Multi-Serum.
[Side note – If your client is a NeoGenesis user – they’d apply NeoGenesis Recovery first on slightly damp skin, allow to dry and then begin these steps.]
Use a normal application of Caviplla on the face and decolletage for daily use; as opposed to a heavy application when used as a Sleeping Mask at night.
We begin with Caviplla to start the PLLA building phase because of the O2 in this product helps the ingredients in it and the products following to penetrate better. O2 helps break down the molecules in the product for better absorption. Caviplla begins the firming, toning, and texturing of the skin.
After Caviplla has fully absorbed (1 – 2 minutes), apply the Cell Repair Cream. The 4 (four) EGFs [Epidermal Growth Factor] and allantoin speeds cell turnover. It has been scientifically proven that every cell in our body is replaced with new cells every 7 years. This product speeds that process up on the face. Not to mention, snail filtrate contains hyaluronic acid, glycoprotein, proteoglycans, and antimicrobial and copper peptides, all of which fight against premature aging. Fibrinolytic enzymes in snail filtrate promote the oxygenation of skin cells to repair damaged tissues. NOTE: It spreads well. An amount the size of nickel will do. Allow it to absorb 1 – 2 minutes before next step.
Now, is a good time to apply any other serums or products that are not PLLA. For example, if using Vitamin C, retinols (only at night), eye serums, etc.
Follow with your favorite moisturizer (PLLA products will boost moisturizing effectiveness). I recommend NeoGenesis Intensive Moisturizer. Remember, PLLA causes your skin to work hard at producing more collagen and elastin. It may need some moisturizer added during the building up process. Once skin has adjusted and kicked into collagen production, it will feel more supple and moist.
Next, apply Sun Cushion by gently patting on the face for SPF 50 protection and light coverage. This product does not need rubbed in. You will use too much if you rub it in. Using a gentle pat of the applicator onto the sun cushion grab a little bit of product, then gently pat into place on the face, and then use the tip of the applicator to pat to blend. A little goes a long way. This is an SPF/BB cream also containing PLLA, 4EGFs for anti-aging benefits.
If you wear foundation, you may apply it before Sun Cushion. Sun Cushion could potentially replace your foundation, depending on how much coverage is needed.
Finish with a spritz of Stem Cell Mist. Loaded with PLLA, lotus plant stem cells, hydrolyzed collagen and aloe vera to refresh dull skin returning the glow, Stem Cell Mist penetrates well and sets nicely. Don’t rub it in. Just let it sit on skin and absorb naturally until it is dry (about 1 – 2 minutes).
PLLA product results build with each application. This means results continue to get better with continued use. Allow at least 2 – 4 weeks before making any judgement on efficacy. Some see results faster pretty quickly, while others make take as long as 6 weeks. The key is DON’T GIVE UP! Your skin didn’t age overnight and neither will it improve overnight.
If you’re doing peels, masks that strip, using harsh cleansers, or exfoliation, you will remove some of the building effect. This just means after you do these steps, you’ll need to start again to continue the building process of PLLA in the hair follicle where it penetrates into the deeper layers of the skin to boost collagen and elastin production.
For best results, skip deep exfoliation, peels, or products that remove the hair from the follicle while you’re building PLLA levels in your skin.
