SkinCeuticals

Advanced Skin Care Backed By Science

Prevention - Protection - Correction

Our office is now an Authorized Distributor for SkinCeuticals Skin Care products. Our office decided to carry skin care products because of the large percent of skin cancer that occurs around the eyes, and because we receive so many questions about how to prevent and correct signs of aging around the eyes.

Founded in 1997, SkinCeuticals discovers, develops, and delivers innovative dermatology products that improve the overall health and appearance of the skin. SkinCeuticals use pure, pharmaceutical grade ingredients at optimal concentrations with proven scientific results. SkinCeuticals has a strong reputation with the medical community worldwide among Dermatologists and Plastic Surgeons.

To maintain and improve skin health, an effective skincare regimen must contain three fundamental elements - prevention, protection, and correction. SkinCeuticals line of advanced skincare products is designed to prevent future damage, protect healthy skin, and correct previous damage. Achieving results means not only restoring youthful, radiant skin - it means preventing serious skin conditions. SkinCeuticals continues to lead the industry as one of the first companies to provide scientific evidence to support product benefits in peer reviewed medical journals.



C E ferulic C E Ferulic
C E Ferulic is a revolutionary antioxidant combination that delivers advanced protection against photoaging - neutralizing free radicals, helping build collagen, and reducing fine lines and wrinkles. More protection means more youthful looking skin and better defense against environmental aging. Containing 15% pure L-ascorbic acid and 1% alpha tocopherol, the addition of ferulic acid doubles the already synergistic benefits of our original high-potency formula, C+E, transforming C E Ferulic into a super-antioxidant combination.

Phloretin CF Gel Phloretin CF Gel
Phloretin CF represents a new class of preventive and corrective topical antioxidant treatment. After five years of extensive research, SkinCeuticals developed this patent-pending breakthrough technology combining the newly-discovered, broad-range power of phloretin with vitamin C and ferulic acid in a biodiverse formulation to divide and conquer sources of damage at every level. Phloretin CF, a broad-spectrum treatment, protects against not only free radicals, but the range of other reactive molecules known to cause damage and DNA mutations among the integral cell types. In addition, it corrects existing damage by stimulating the synthesis of essential proteins and fibers and accelerating cell turnover. The result is a strengthened support structure on the inside and a more youthful, firm, radiant appearance on the outside. BENEFITS: Prevents premature signs of aging and corrects existing photo damage. Divides and conquers the range of reactive oxygen species (ROS) throughout the skin. Prevents cell mutation by shielding skin's DNA. Accelerates cell turnover. Boosts skin's support structure. Inhibits UV-induced discolourations


A.G.E. Interrupter A.G.E. Interrupter
A.G.E. Interrupter is specifically formulated to improve the creping, thinning appearance of mature skin caused by intrinsic or internal aging processes such as glycation. Glycation occurs when excess glucose molecules stick to collagen and elastin fibers, eventually binding them together and leading to the formation of Advanced Glycation End-products (A.G.E.). Glycated collagen and elastin fibers lose the ability to function normally, and the body cannot break them down and replace them, which leads to severe wrinkling of the skin. BENEFITS: 4% Blueberry extract slows down the process of advanced glycation end-product (A.G.E.) formation, preventing the rigidification of collagen and elastin fibers. 30% Proxylane stimulates GAG synthesis, restoring water and nutrients to the dermal epidermal junction. 0.2% Phytosphingosine helps protect the skin's barrier to alleviate discomfort associated with dry, aging skin.


A.G.E. Eye Complex A.G.E. Eye Complex
This three-dimensional treatment contains a unique combination of ingredients to dramatically improve severe signs of intrinsic aging around the eyes in mature skin. Immediately, optical diffusers improve radiance and minimize the appearance of dark circles and capillaries. Within four to twelve weeks, a complex of flavonoids and synergistic peptides strengthens blood vessel walls, improves lymphatic drainage, and eliminates hemoglobin's colored end-products to dramatically improve dark circles and puffiness. By twelve weeks and beyond, blueberry extract interrupts the formation of advanced glycation end-products (A.G.E.) and Proxylane restores water and nutrient content to the dermal epidermal junction (D.E.J.) to increase skin elasticity and thickness for dramatic improvement of wrinkles and crow's feet.


Eye Cream Eye Cream
Powerful ingredients work synergistically in this firming eye treatment to help correct early signs of aging. Eye Cream is formulated with a special complex to combat symptoms such as puffiness, sagging skin, and dark circles all specific to the delicate eye area. This first line of defense against environmentally induced skin damage supports collagen synthesis and accelerates the skin's ability to repair damage resulting from UV light, pollutants, and harmful chemicals. BENEFITS: Combats puffiness, sagging skin and dark circles around the delicate eye area. Protects against environmental aggressors. Supports collagen synthesis. Accelerates the skin's ability to repair itself. Enhances hydration.

Eye Balm Eye Balm
A synergistic combination of highly effective, yet gentle phytochemicals rehabilitates mature, aging skin around the delicate eye area. This rich, corrective emollient treatments is specifically formulated to counter the three primary signs of aging: moisture loss, collagen breakdown, and free radical damage. A natural anti-inflammatory is added to reduce the appearance of under-eye puffiness, while a soothing agent derived from the chamomile plant calms irritated skin. BENEFITS: Helps correct age-related damage around the eye area. Improves the appearance of the delicate skin around the eyes. Stimulates collagen and hyaluronate production to firm skin. Supports replacement of lipids in dry skin. Protects against free-radical attack. Relieves the appearance of under-eye puffiness with gorgonian extract. Calms irritated skin with alpha bisabolol. Formulated for dry, mature skin around the eye area.
