Alastin’s Skincare’s INhance Post-Injection Serum with TriHex Technology can help reduce post-injection bruising and swelling, according to a report inthe Journal of Drugs in Dermatology.
In the multi-center, randomized, double-blind clinical study, two bruise models were studied and used to create similar bruises on the subjects' left and right arms. One arm was treated with INhance Post-Injection Serum, while the control arm was treated with a bland moisturizer comparator. Participants who used INhance Post-Injection Serum with TriHex Technology on day 2 and 3 had 73 percent less bruise color intensity and significant improvement over the comparator. Overall, 81 percent of subjects applying the INhance topically had less bruising on day 2 and 3 than the comparator.
"A bruise can appear minutes to hours after an injury. Bruises are created by byproducts made up of broken-down hemoglobin under the skin which contribute to the various colors of the bruise that slowly resolve over time. INhance utilizes proprietary ChromaFADE Technology along with other active peptides and botanicals that work synergistically to hasten the body's process of clearing the debris," says Alan D. Widgerow, Chief Medical Officer of Alastin, in a news release. "The inclusion of TriHex Technology in the formulation also supports the skin's ability to generate new collagen, elastin, hyaluronic acid and serves as an excellent adjunct to further enhance the injectable results."
INhance was formulated for use on all areas of the face including the body of the lip. The incorporation of Xylitol, a sugar also found in some chewing gums and toothpastes, has a slightly sweet flavor and has been shown to have anti-inflammatory and antibiofilm effects, especially when combined with Lactoferrin, the Company reports.
