intercosmetics-resurfacing“How can I have perfect skin, naturally?” This is the question all clients want answered. Dermocosmetic science now has a deeper understanding of the skin’s renewal mechanism, and so in the new Resurfacing Facial from Diego Dalla Palma, we are able to harness the power of the latest generation of cosmeceutical ingredients to finally give our clients the skin they’ve been dreaming of.


Retinol is one of the most powerful antiaging and anti-imperfection cosmeceutical ingredients. It has amazing properties to retexturize the skin, combat dark spots and uneven complexion, and reduce wrinkles, acne scars and dilated pores. It is a superb antiaging ingredient that is sought after by consumers and beauty professionals alike, but if it is not properly formulated it can have negative effects. The Retinol used by Diego Dalla Palma is micro-encapsulated in Carnauba wax to preserve its properties making its action on the skin more delicate and well-tolerated. The carnauba wax also ensures the Retinol is fully penetrated with time-release, and is absorbed with no negative side effects.

Many people mistakenly believe that the percentage of retinol is the most important factor – in other words, the higher percentage of retinol, the better the antiaging effects. In fact, this is not true. It is much more important to look at what other ingredients are present in the skincare to work with the retinol, because retinol is most effective when it’s combined synergistically with other strong dermocosmetic ingredients. In its Regenerating Serum (for professional use and homecare), Diego Dalla Palma Professional combines Retinol with hyaluronic acid and n-acetylglucosamine for hydration, smoothness and protection. It is also combined with another powerful cosmeceutical REVIVYL to stimulate stem cell skin renewal and protect the skin’s microbiome. With the Regenerating Serum you have beautiful fresh skin with none of the usual negative effects that can come with Retinol.


This new dermocosmetic ingredient was named “Best New Active Ingredient” at the Global Cosmetics Show in New York.

By cracking the secrets of the complex skin regeneration cycle and its delicate balance, dermocosmetic science has learned that regeneration needs to be activated in sequence starting from the bottom layers to the top– from the inside, working out. Traditionally antiaging peels work in reverse, by peeling away the top layer of the skin, but now we know that it is more important to work from the inside out. It is also crucial to protect the natural balance of the skin’s microbiome (good bacteria) to maintain skin health and beauty.

Revivyl™ has been scientifically designed to deliver targeted biological actions respecting this natural sequence from the lower to the higher layers of the epidermis. Evaluated through exhaustive in vitro, ex vivo and in vivo studies, Revivyl™ has demonstrated holistic effects on the natural skin renewal cycle.

On the surface, it protects the skin’s microbiome, the invisible world of good bacteria present on the surface of the skin and essential to preserving a healthy skin and protecting it from external agents. In depth, it stimulates skin renewal while maintaining the activity of stem cells, the skin’s “youth capital”. The result is smoother, younger, rebalanced and regenerated skin – from the inside out. On top of that, it is from a natural source, water-soluble and safe.


This is a wonder ingredient for acne-prone skin, but it also shows significant benefits for all skin types. Azelaic acid promotes cell renewal, to even out skin texture for a brighter, more refined and smooth complexion. It reduces the appearance of blemishes and minimizes post-acne marks, scars and discoloration. It also counteracts the growth of the bad bacteria causing acne and impurities, and prevents the formation of new comedones, and is antibacterial and anti-inflammatory so it is effective in the treatment of acne as well as rosacea.

When it comes to preventing the signs of aging, Azelaic acid has amazing skin brightening properties. It reduces hyperpigmentation by inhibiting the enzyme tyrosinase, which is needed for the production of melanin. Finally it is an antioxidant which means it helps prevent free-radical damage to the skin, resulting in less fine lines and wrinkles. In it’s Rebalancing Serum (for professional use and home care) Diego Dalla Palma combines the Azelaic Acid with Revivyl and Vitamin PP for a concentrated purifying and uniforming serum, but also an amazing antiaging serum.
