BALATONE™ is the second step in a daily protocol for gaining a healthy skin prior to any treatments such as Thermage or Fraxel. Having the skin healthy pre and post  any medical skin treatment is the best way to maximize your results.  When I looked at my facial photos taken on the Canifield Imaging system used at Parkway Skin and Wellness Centre in Hong Kong, I could see that my skin not only looked dry, but it had an overall weak and fragile structure.

As part of the ZO treatment protocol, one that involves treatment with Retinol an aggressive results related treatment. BALATONE™ is designed to not only balance the pH and allow additional skin care to penetrate into the skin effectively, but BALATONE™ acts as a calming toner designed to invigorate a dry weak skin.

If you have wondered if a toner was necessary in building good skin care speak with your Skin Doctor to truly understand why you need to have the natural pH balance restored after using a cleanser, and the properties you should have in a medical grade toner to add to your skin health, as I discovered.

BALATONE™  is not an ordinary toner, this unique toner also optimizes the penetration of therapeutic treatments by removing impurities and build up on the skin. It invigorates sensitive, irritated and dry skin with its proprietary technology.

There is a therapeutic value to using BALATONE™  1) A unique combination of solvents, astringents, and exfoliants to thoroughly clear and cleanse the skin, after using your cleanser, 2) A combination of hydrators, moisturizer and conditioners to heal a treated skin, 3) Cooling gentle action to give a new level of comfort to toning technology.

I found this toner did not drag or pull the skin when I applied it with a cotton pad,  it was not greasy or left a film of any kind on the skin. It rather gave an appearance of a brighter more even looking skin tone, cool to the touch and moist. The cool appearance is where I could see the comfort and toning technology work on my skin.
