So, I decided to put CliniqueMedical to the test. About three weeks ago I had a SmartXide DOT CO2 skin resurfacing procedure. I decided to compare CliniqueMedical with the DOT SkinCare products that are included with the DOT CO2 laser treatment just to see if they were more effective and whether they offered a faster healing time.
Day 1 & 2: I used DOT system only. I used the Soothing Balm as often as I felt I needed it (about every 3 hours).
Day 3: Here is where I started my double blind study. I continued to use the DOT SkinCare system on the left side of my face. On the right side, I began to use the Clinique Medical System.
Day 4: I noticed that the CliniqueMedical side felt a lot more moist and I didn't need to reapply the products as much. I also started to flake and peel faster on the right side then the left.
Day 5: The Clinique Medical side looked a lot less dry and felt less irritated.
I could now put makeup on my face and most of our clients couldn't tell that I'd had anything done. My face was clearly more healed and looked more moisturized on the right side than the left!
Conclusion: Doing this simple split study comparing the DOT SkinCare system and the CliniqueMedical system, I concluded that my face felt much more hydrated, healed faster, and appeared smoother. If it is important to get a faster healing time and moist, hydrated skin, I'd splurge a little and purchase the Clinique Medical System. The DOT therapy products just give a bit slower results and I wasn't as happy with the feel of my skin. What if I had started using Clinique Medical from the beginning? And what if I had used it pre-treatment as suggested.....I may have gotten even faster results.
