Is BioStrat Skincare just about ReSurfacing?

No. We have a range of products that contain effective well-studied ingredients offering double-duty performance. Though, if you haven't yet tried the BioStrat Skin ReSurfacing™, we highly recommended you start your transformation, today. We've survived several economic recessions because the products work!

What is Skin ReSurfacing?

Resurfacing is something that the skin wants to do naturally, Though this naturally occurring cellular renewal process tends to slow down with aging, and other factors.

Normally, when the skin is young and healthy, cells continuously reproduce (generate) and replace older ones.  Newborn cells, continuously forming, take about 3 to 4 weeks to rise and replace older shedding cells.  However, as this process slows down, it may 10 or 11 weeks to complete.

When cells are sluggishly turning over, you may perceive your skin as 'unbalanced' or notice a dull looking complexion, emphasized wrinkles, clogged pores, sagging or rough, uneven texture. Certain products may seem like they're not working as well as hoped, or like they use to.

Fortunately, technology has contributed greatly to the regulation of the cellular renewal and skin resurfacing process, which in turn supports exfoliation, a more regulated cell turn over, along with collagen and glycan enhancement for improved:

  • skin resiliency

  • skin radiance

  • colour

  • elasticity

  • clarity

  • hydration

  • texture

  • tone

Stunning Transformations

For the next three months, we invite you to start your skin transformation with the BioStrat Skin ReSurfacing Plan™. It's simple, affordable and can take up to 10 to 15 years of the look of your skin.

What's the BioStrat Skin ReSurfacing™ Plan?

The BioStrat Skin ReSurfacing™ skin transformation offers several options, depending on what you seek to address.

Option 1: To commence skin resurfacing in the privacy of your own home, obtain the BioStrat Skin Resurfacing Kit™ 

Option 2:  After you have been using the BioStrat Skin Resurfacing Kit™ products for several weeks, for quicker noticeable results, consider a BioStrat Peel™ series. You may contact us, or one of our authorized distributors, to receive a  referral to a spa or clinic offering these services.

Is Option 2 a Must?

No. Lower glycolic concentrations offer many of the same benefits as higher concentration over time. However, if you combine both options, you may experience dramatic, visible results more quickly, over a shorter time period. Lower concentrations also help to prepare the skin to receive concentrations and maintain it thereafter.

What about my Skin Type?

We're aware that skin types and customer concerns vary.

Whether experiencing wrinkles, hyper-pigmentation, acne, normal to oily skin, normal to dry skin, extremely dry skin, sensitive skin, photo-damage, razor bump, rosacea, or menopausal skin, the BioStrat Skin ReSurfacing Kit™ and Skin ReSurfacing Plan™ supports balanced looking skin at its best.

Can I doskin resurfacing at Home?

YES. The BioStrat Micro-Peels™ feature the highest grade of glycolic acid on the market. This grade is often referred to as the clinical or the pharmaceutical grade. Formulated to commence and maintain achieved benefit, for maximum performance, the BioStrat Micro-Peels™ are best used in conjunction with the Prep Wash™, Post Mist™ and Eco-Day™.

Offering quick noticeable results, these home peels and supportive BioStrat Formulations™ in the kit also enhance the overall outcome of select services that you may be receiving from a spa or clinic such as microdermabrasion, chemical peels and cosmetic laser treatments.

What are BioStrat Peels™?

The BioStrat Peels™ feature more intense glycolic concentrations to maximize the benefits that skin resurfacing offers.  Commonly referred to as chemical peels, these are available through select spas and specialists. Depending upon your skin's tolerance and needs, these are normally offered in series that may consist of 3 to 12 peels, performed consequently every two weeks until the series is complete.

The BioStrat Peels™ are intended to be provided in conjunction with the products in the BioStrat Skin Resurfacing Kit™ as these products are formulations to prepare, maintain and enhance the overall outcome of such advanced skin resurfacing applications. Once your skin starts to appear younger, brighter, smoother and healthier, your specialist may recommend other BioStrat Formulations or services.

Why should I choose BioStrat ReSurfacing?

That's a good question. In raw material form, certain ingredients come in different grades and strengths.  Some may also be weakened or neutralized by other ingredients that make up of product's cosmetic matrix. For example, a 10% glycolic extracted from a 20% glycolic raw material source may end up being a 1% yet marketed as a 10%.  Naturally, a 99% glycolic raw material source is considerably more concentrated than a 20% glycolic raw material source. The BioStrat Glycolic formulations feature extractions from a 99% raw material source. Learn more...

What is 'Acclimatization'?

Skin 'acclimatization' may best be described as a process where the skin first becomes accustom to milder resurfacing agents or methods before advancing to more intense ones. 

Resurfacing is shown to increase skin collagen and glycan deposition.  However, this is best described as being gradual process that occurs that parallels acclimatization.  Increased collagen improves resiliency while increase glycans improves hydration.  As resiliency improves, your skin may no longer feel tingling sensations that might have been felt when first  introduced to a BioStrat Micro-Peel™. This is considered normal.

In about the second or third week, the skin may feel 'temporarily' dehydrated as lifeless cells begin to shed and become replaced by younger, healthier looking ones. If you do notice this (not everyone does), for additional hydration and moisture, apply the Post Mist™ and Eco-Day™ Solar 15+ as your dictates throughout the day.

Warning: As your skin adjusts, and fells more balanced, your skincare needs will likely change.  If you have oily-acne prone skin, you may no longer look elsewhere for pore refining products.  If you have dry skin, you might not need as much cream or moisturizer as in the past. 

Where Do I Begin?

The BioStrat Skin ReSurfacing Kit™ is the starting point in the BioStrat Resurfacing Plan™. Results are often noticed after one day or two days, though longer term benefits are generally achieved over several months.
