In each issue, Practical Dermatology® magazine spotlights a new product that dermatologists are recommending to patients. Here, Joel L. Cohen, MD, Director of AboutSkin Dermatology and DermSurgery in Greenwood Village and Lone Tree, CO, tells us why he is so excited about Senté’s Dermal Repair Ultra-Nourish Crème and the role he played in its development.

What is Senté’s Dermal Repair Ultra-Nourish?

Joel Cohen, MD: As a member of Senté’s Scientific Advisory Board, I have discussed that Dermal Repair Cream is one of the best products that I carry in my office. It truly helps patients achieve many aspects of healthier skin and is a great complement to many of the procedures that we do, including lasers, fractional radiofrequency microneedling, and peels. My practice participated in the post-procedure case study with positive results, great patient feedback, and no adverse events.

It helps restore skin health, enhances moisture and hydration of deeper structures, and improves pigment and redness. Still, in the dry mountain climate when patients are using retinoids, they need more moisturizing qualities. I have recommended adding more moisture to Dermal Repair Cream to the Senté corporate team based on my wife’s recommendation and my personal experience as well as so many of my patients’ experience, and they developed Dermal Repair Ultra-Nourish, which has far surpassed my expectations. This is an incredibly moisturizing formulation that still delivers all of the key ingredients of Dermal Repair Cream and its proprietary Heparan Sulfate Analog (HSA) that penetrates into the dermis and helps with key cascades for improving hydration, neocollagenesis, as well as pigment and redness improvement.

How do you suggest your patients use Dermal Repair Ultra-Nourish?

Dr. Cohen: Dermal Repair Ultra-Nourish is lightweight enough to use daily and is ideal for sensitive skin and to help patients tolerate nightly retinoid use. As an aesthetic dermatologist who does procedures all day on patients with wrinkles, pigment and redness, it’s great to have a product that works on all of these issues. We know from clinical studies that HSA, the key ingredient in Senté Dermal Repair Cream and Dermal Repair Ultra-Nourish, can help to improve facial lines as well as areas of pigment and erythema, which makes it a fantastic complement to the procedures that I do all day, including lasers and injectables.

How does Dermal Repair Ultra-Nourish compare with other products in this category?

Dr. Cohen: The reality is that there are many patients that simply love Dermal Repair Cream but don’t find it to be moisturizing enough in the winter or when getting started with retinoids. The key in Senté’s products is their HSA technology, which is proven to increase deep and superficial hydration and help minimize inflammation that can appear as visible redness. Very few products provide both immediate and long-lasting hydration and moisturization, while even fewer can reduce visible redness to the same degree as Senté’s HSA.

Dermal Repair Ultra-Nourish meets the needs of so many skin concerns. Also being non-comedogenic and super-hydrating, it has fast become a fantastic peri-procedure regimen for my patients. They are using Dermal Repair Ultra-Nourish right up to their laser and peel appointments, then I have them restart it a few days after ablative procedures, and right away for non-ablative procedures.

What types of results are your patients seeing?

Dr. Cohen: We were part of the initial testing over a year ago and since then, I have family and staff members who have indicated that this product does so many things for them. It helps reduce redness, it helps them tolerate retinoids, it layers under sunscreen very well. It also helps recover from chemical peels, RF microneedling, as well as various laser procedures from Halo Hybrid Fractional to even full-field ablative erbium.

How important is skincare in your overall treatment philosophy?

Dr. Cohen: Skincare is a very important complement to the procedures that I recommend and perform every day. I want products that work, are supported by clinical data that patients also enjoy using.

New Products

This nighttime product is formulated with the Healthy Follicle Complex.

Core Skincare Trio Plus Edition, DefenAge

DefenAge Skincare launched its best-selling Clinical Power Trio in its first ever PLUS-edition, delivering a longer-lasting dose of DefenAge’s 8-in-1 BioSerum. The Clinical Power Trio+ now contains a mega size 8-in-1 BioSerum with 50 percent more than the standard size. The Clinical Power Trio+ includes: MEGA size 8-in-1 BioSerum, 24/7 Barrier Balance Cream, and the 2-Minute Reveal Masque. The Trio is DefenAge’s core skincare regimen and is formulated to address signs of skin exhaustion and aging on a global scale. In 2014, two doctors studying regenerative medicine and cell biology discovered the anti-aging properties from defensins, molecules that naturally awaken dormant skin cells and spark a wound-healing response to create new skin. This research led to the idea of a visionary strategy for anti-aging, and the eventual creation of DefenAge.

Preventative and Corrective Skincare Regimen, La Roche-Posay

La Roche-Posay launched two new products for an all-in-one, preventative and corrective skincare regimen. La Roche-Posay Glycolic B5 10% Pure Glycolic Acid Serum, a lightweight glycolic acid serum, suitable for multiple skin tones, helps reduce the look of dark spots and discolorations and reveals brighter, more even looking skin. This serum combines concentrated 10% pure glycolic acid, tranexamic acid (TXA), lipo-hydroxy acid, and vitamin B5 for optimal effectiveness. La Roche-Posay Anthelios Mineral SPF Moisturizer with Hyaluronic Acid provides 12-hour hydration and helps reduce signs of premature skin aging caused by the sun. This mineral sunscreen for face is formulated with Cell-Ox Shield Technology: broad spectrum UVA/UVB protection with antioxidants. Suitable for normal, oily, dry, combination skin types, it was tested on sensitive skin.
