Page 41 of 124 | SEPTEMBER 2016 39 SKIN SOOTHERS M'lis PROBIOTIC Synergized Acidophilus 800.548.0569, Shira Esthetics Shir-Organic Pure Green Algae Soothing Gel 800.957.4472, including Pevonia's RS2 Concentrate, as well as a hydrating cream cleanser and an alcohol-free desensitizing toner. These ensure that clients follow our recommendations as much as possible. Berry: I'm a big fan of the Repêchage Hydra 4 collection for helping clients with rosacea, and I've gotten great results with the line's Red-Out Facial for hypersensitive skin. The blend of seaweeds is rich in nourishing antioxidants; the treatment is full of infl ammation-fi ghting ingredients, including quercetin, rutin, Mirabilis jalapa extract and antimicrobial micro-silver; and hyaluronic acid increases skin resilience and hydration. When my clients leave less red than when they walked in, I know they'll be back and trust me to treat their skin long term. Spahr: We offer DermAware's Saving Face Peel, a hybrid professional protocol that helps control acne-rosacea symptoms. For home care, my go-to products are the brand's Pure & Gentle Cleanser, which cleans without overdrying sensitive skin; VITal K Microgel, which minimizes redness caused by broken capillaries; and Modern Mask, which helps skin rebalance. Are there considerations or precautions to be aware of when treating clients who are on prescription medication for their rosacea? Berry: I prefer not to treat clients for rosacea if they're using prescription medication or homecare products that I'm unfamiliar with. However, our calming facial is always advisable, as it relaxes and soothes skin—that protocol shouldn't cause issues with medication. Crossett: In my experience, most dermatologists will work with estheticians and their treatments. Always ask questions and understand what treatment protocol your client and their doctor have chosen—and remember to keep this private information confi dential. Certain prescriptions or regimens may alter the way you need to approach a client with rosacea: If they're on antibiotics, their skin may be more sensitive; and some medications for stress, hormonal imbalances or anxiety could be contraindicated for certain treatments. Spahr: Rosacea medication focuses on calming the skin, and facial treatments aim to do the same—there shouldn't be too many problems with that combination. However, when skin is extremely infl amed, red and angry, I prefer to do only a light, calming facial and refrain from peels. Laura Beliz is DAYSPA's associate editor.
