Camouflage Make-up and Concealer used at Heartland Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery is called LYCOGEL by LYCO SCIENCE. It's the first color corrective cover-up that contains LYCD (LiveYeast Cell Derivatives), a known tissue respiratory factor that facilitates oxygen, allowing the skin to breath. The exclusive ingredients in LYCOGEL work together to encourage moisture and oxygen back into the treated zones, essential to recovery while it creates the illusion of perfect skin.
Will it help during recovery of my skin?
A patient can apply LYCOGEL immediately after procedures such as chemical peels, skin resurfacing, laser work, or in short, anything that causes redness, swelling or bruising. LYCOGEL contains UVA/UVB sun protection titanium dioxide and moisturizers, so the skin is protected and hydrated, even after swimming or heavy exercising. The pharmaceutical grade ingredients found in LYCOGEL are tested in a 12 Point Purity Evaluation, ensuring that the skin is left feeling soothed, protected and looking flawless for hours.
What if I am normally unable to wear make-up?
Unlike other camouflage makeups that are oil or cream based with alcohol based preservatives known to decrease oxygen and can cause irritation, LYCOGEL is a gel base that provides excellent hypoallergenic, non-comedogenic cover. The skin is left looking and feeling fresh and pure, while effectively eliminating evidence of treatment or conditions such as acne, rosacea, and permanent discolorations.
Increase confidence during recovery!
Healthy, natural looking skin will save you from the embarrassment of any visual wounds, bruising or scars during the recovery process. LYCOGEL will help you avoid unnecessary suffering and discomfort from down time allowing you to resume work and normal activities without feeling self conscious.
How does it work?
LYCOGEL is an exclusive, scientifically proven system that measures the color tones and hues of your skin called "Cross Pigment Factor System" technology Dermacia was able to develop LYCOGEL to match nearly every skin tone using only four shades, one that will be the perfect match of your skin tone. The high performing cover gel provides undetectable camouflage to red or bruised areas. Even if you apply layer after layer, the appearance or feel is not heavy or caked looking and will provide waterproof coverage for hours even up to 90 minutes when swimming.
