Plasma Pen’s Perfect Vitamin C serum contains 20% Vitamin C in its most stable form, Ethyl Ascorbic Acid. This advanced, nourishing serum utilises peptides and stem cell technology to protect against free radical damage and brighten and balance skin by enhancing the inhibition of melanogenesis (the process that produces pigment in the skin). It also helps boost collagen production, hydrate the skin, deliver powerful antioxidant protection to decrease the risks associated with UVA/UVB damage and provide superior cell protection against UVB and significantly supercharge healing, minimise swelling and optimise treatment results. Using a topical Vitamin C serum also helps reduce skin degradation from free radicals and inflammation. The key ingredients are (1) Ethyl ascorbic acid which provides superior skin lightening and collagen synthesis for a clearer, more youthful complexion and this extremely stable form of Vitamin C deeply penetrates the epidermis for maximum benefits, (2) Ergothioneine which is an antioxidant amino acid that reduces free radical damage thus protecting proteins against oxidative degradation from glycation, (3) Palmitoyl tripeptide-38 which is a peptide that helps smooth wrinkles and rebuild healthy skin, (4) Ferulic Acid extracted from rice bran oil and one of the world’s most powerful natural anti-oxidants, (5) Symphytum Officianale root cell extract which is derived from the comfrey leaf and contains a high content of vitamin C, carotene and B12. Not only should this product be used after a treatment both as a maintenance product and to help supercharge healing and optimise treatment results (it should be used from the point when the carbon crusts have desquamated following a Plasma Pen procedure) but it is a superb product to use as part of a pre-treatment regime to prepare the skin ready for a Plasma Pen treatment and help supercharge outcomes. It should be applied to clean, dry skin every morning and evening.
