Skincare is essential both pre-and post-treatment because of its ability to optimize procedure outcomes, minimize downtime, and maintain results over time. While there are seemingly endless products that claim miraculous results, this is rarely the case. With a background in biochemistry and cell biology, Dr. Reis has personally reviewed all of the options and only recommends those products that are clinically proven to be highly effective through the most rigorous basic science and clinical research and testing.
Alastin is a comprehensive medical-grade product line offering cutting-edge, scientifically tested formulas that all include Alastin’s proprietary TriHex Technology®. Developed by a plastic surgeon and expert in wound healing and tissue regeneration with other leading experts in the skincare field, Alastin’s TriHex peptides are clinically proven to be the most effective topical compounds ever created for stimulating and increasing the three pillars of healthy and youthful skin:
- Elastin, the protein that gives your skin its elasticity and “bounce back” and serves an important role in promoting tighter, youthful skin
- Collagen, the connective tissue backbone of the skin that gives it its strength and flexibility
- Hyaluronic Acid (HA), holds moisture in the skin like a sponge and acts as a volumizer and plumping agent (this is actually what all Juvederm and Restylane fillers are composed of!).
- Alastin’s groundbreaking results for post-procedure healing, pre-procedure preparation, general maintenance, and overall anti-aging are unmatched by any other skincare line.
Dr. Reis loves the entire Alastin skincare line because of its wonderful minimalist simplicity and its amazing efficacy and results. Unlike most medical-grade skincare lines, Alastin only offers a select few products that are proven in the lab as well as clinically to work and don’t offer a confusing number of products that overlap or are very similar. Furthermore, none of the products have any filler, fragrance, or preservatives, and all ingredients are present in each product for a specific, synergistic, and proven reason. Not only does Dr. Reis use this line for anti-aging and maintenance himself and his family, but recommends one or more of their products to every patient.
Alastin Regenerating Skin Nectar with TriHex Technology®
This proprietary product supports the skin’s natural regeneration process and was specially formulated to support the skin, before, during, and after surgical and non-surgical procedures and cosmetic treatments.

Alastin Regenerating Skin Nectar is very similar to the Restorative Skin Complex, however is not a water-based formula so it doesn’t irritate delicate skin or scars following a cosmetic procedure or surgery. It also includes a powerful natural plant-based anti-inflammatory as well as Arnica Montana extract which is proven to reduce swelling and bruising after surgery and cosmetic treatments. The Skin Nectar is an absolute “Go-To” product that Dr. Reis recommends to every single of his patients undergoing any procedure or surgery to speed recovery, minimize scarring, and optimize the final results.
