February Tip of the Month: Firming Face Mask
Available exclusively at Olympic Dermatology, Epionce Enriched Firming Mask is paraben-free, fragrance-free, non-pore blocking and suitable for all skin types. It works to:
- Calm and soothe skin post-procedure
- Maximally stimulate skin’s function
- Firm and tighten skin
- Help reduce redness and calm heat from procedures
- Reveal radiant, beautiful skin
This highly emollient mask uses signature Epionce botanicals and a proprietary blend of barrier lipids to enhance hydration, stop destructive inflammation and reduce redness in skin. Enriched Firming Mask was designed for use directly following cosmetic dermatology procedures, such as chemical peels and Fotofacial or SPECTRA Laser treatments to help calm and soothe sensitive skin. The mask is also ideal for at-home use to boost treatment results. Hydrating and calming, the mask can be applied one to two times per week to help minimize redness, encourage elasticity and firm skin.
Enriched Firming Mask is also great for other skin conditions as part of your at-home regimen. Use one to two times per week and leave on for 5-20 minutes. For extra hydration, the mask can be left on while sleeping and rinsed off in the morning.

What should you use on your skin post procedure?

Avocado Extract is part of the Epionce Barrier Repair Technology, and stimulates collagen and elastin production for tighter skin. It optimizes the function, hydration and elasticity of the stratum corneum. It is anti-inflammatory and provides firming benefit.

Q: After a resurfacing procedure, when is it okay for me to start using the Enriched Firming Mask?
A: Depending on the depth of your procedure it’s okay to use Enriched Firming Mask immediately after your treatment. It works quickly to calm irritated, sensitive skin while helping to reduce surface redness.
Q: What if my skin is very oily or I have inflamed acne, can I still use the Enriched Firming Mask or will it make me break out?
A: You can still use it even on oily or acne-prone skin to reduce redness in very inflamed areas. The Willow Bark works as an anti-microbial to help kill surface bacteria, while the Shea Butter and Avocado work to soothe and calm inflamed skin. It’s probably best to rinse and not sleep in it overnight, since oily skin does not need the extra hydration.
Q: Should I leave the Enriched Firming Mask on for more than 5 – 20 minutes?
A: You can leave it on as long as you want. It really is a matter of personal preference or based on what you want to accomplish. If hydration is the key, leave it on overnight. If firming or reducing redness is the focus, rinse after 5 – 20 minutes.
Q: How do I use the Enriched Firming Mask at home?
A: It may be used at home once or twice a week, as needed, to give your skin an extra boost of soothing hydration. As with other Epionce products, a little goes a long way, so you probably won’t need more than about one tablespoon of mask for adequate coverage. Lightly massage the mask into your skin after application but it won’t completely absorb into the skin immediately. Leave on 5 – 20 minutes, then rinse with warm water and follow with your normal skin care regimen. You may also opt to not rinse, and leave it on the skin overnight for extra hydrating benefit. It is excellent to use following a chemical peel, Fotofacial or laser resurfacing treatment.
