Congratulations! You made the decision to purchase a Dr. Dennis Gross DRx SpectraLite FaceWare Pro. Smart choice, considering it’s one of the top-selling LED devices at Sephora. With consistent, daily use of your new FaceWare Pro, you’ll see a real improvement in the appearance of fine lines, skin tone, and acne, thanks to the device’s 162 LEDs (light-emitting diodes). But why stop there? Here are four products you can add to your current skincare routine that will give you even better results from your FaceWare Pro.
Facial Peels: Dr. Dennis Gross Alpha Beta Daily Peels
There are so many reasons to love a peel, but one major benefit to regular chemical exfoliation is that it removes dead cells and other debris stuck to skin’s surface. While it may be invisible to the naked eye, this cellular buildup can actually block LED energy from penetrating as far into your skin as they could. And the deeper this light can go, the better its effects.
Facial Masks: Dr. Dennis Gross Vitamin C Lactic Biocellulose Brightening Treatment Mask
Our dermatologist founder Dennis Gross, MD, is a huge fan of skin boosting, which is the idea of rotating super-powered products into your nightly regimen to goose the mechanisms responsible for building collagen and other cellular functions. One way to do that is to combine our new Dr. Dennis Gross Vitamin C Lactic Biocellulose Brightening Treatment Mask with your LED sesh once a week. Unlike dead skin cells, this sheet mask is specifically made to work with LEDs and doesn’t block their penetration. Apply your Vitamin C Lactic Biocellulose Brightening Treatment Mask, then don your FaceWare Pro. After you complete your FaceWare Pro’s three-minute cycle, leave your sheet mask on for an additional 12 minutes (it’s designed to be worn for 15 minutes total). By increasing blood flow and oxygenation to the skin, the FaceWare Pro enables better absorption of the L-ascorbic acid (aka vitamin C) and niacinamide in the sheet mask.
Vitamin C Serum Dr. Dennis Gross Vitamin C Lactic 15% Vitamin C Firm & Bright Serum
The red LEDs in your FaceWare Pro can do a lot to promote collagen formation, but you can give them extra help by adding a potent vitamin C serum into your post-Pro routine. Topical vitamin C has been shown to help protect the collagen you already have (thanks to its antioxidant qualities), as well as encourage the development of fresh collagen fibers. It also helps slow the production of excess melanin, so that your skin tone appears more even. Our Vitamin C Lactic 15% Vitamin C Firm & Bright Serum has one of the highest concentrations of vitamin C on the market, so it’s a force to be reckoned with on its own. But using our Vitamin C Lactic 15% Vitamin C Firm & Bright Serum in conjunction with the FaceWare Pro turns this potent product up to 11.
Sun Protection Dr. Dennis Gross All-Physical Lightweight Wrinkle Defense Broad Spectrum Sunscreen SPF 30
If we’ve said it once, we’ve said it a thousand times: Sunscreen absolutely every day is non-negotiable. The number one cause of collagen breakdown is UV exposure. Employing topical treatments to stimulate collagen growth but skipping SPF is like going off-roading after getting your car detailed. The best plan for ensuring maximum collagen levels in skin is to combine collagen builders with collagen maintainers (read: a daily SPF of at least 30). After all, it would be a shame to let all your hard work go to waste.
