TNS Essential Serum®
This product’s powerful formula and comprehensive approach to skin rejuvenation makes it an all-time favorite with our patients. TNS Essential Serum® can help tighten skin, reduce wrinkles and fine lines, and improve the skin’s overall texture and tone. This product utilizes a special blend of antioxidants, skin-supporting peptides, and a 93.6% concentration of growth factors—making it one of the strongest skincare products available today. TNS Essential Serum® offers unparalleled results, and can be beneficial for practically anyone seeking a simple and effective way to revitalize their skin. We recommend applying this product immediately after cleansing and toning your skin, prior to applying any other skincare products.
Lytera® Brightening Complex
Effective for all skin types, this non-hydroquinone formula can help individuals who wish to give their skin a brighter, more even tone. It can be especially useful for patients seeking a long-lasting alternative to hydroquinone or other prescription treatments for melasma or hyperpigmentation. Lytera® Brightening Complex contains a special blend of key ingredients, such as vitamin C, peptides, retinol, and niacinamide.
It has been reported in clinical studies to promote a more even skin tone (79% of patients) and improved overall skin quality (95% of patients) after just 12 weeks. Patients should apply this product to clean skin, following TNS Essential Serum® or other anti-aging products. Lytera® Brightening Complex can be used as part of both daytime and nighttime skin regimens.
Also known as vitamin A, retinol has been clinically proven to balance skin tone, as well as tighten and smooth skin (effectively reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles). Additionally, retinol helps facilitate exfoliation, which can help minimize the development of unwanted breakouts.
To prevent any potential dryness or irritation that can occasionally occur with retinol treatments, the SkinMedica® Retinol Complex is formulated with the inclusion of antioxidants, providing it with an anti-inflammatory quality. Depending on your specific skin type, our team of highly-trained aestheticians can help you select the appropriate level of retinol strength. Retinol Complex should only be used as part of your evening skincare routine, prior to applying a nighttime moisturizer.
HA5 Rejuvenating Hydrator
Comprised of five different forms of hyaluronic acid (HA), this product aids in your skin’s natural ability to replenish HA, ultimately resulting in smoother, more hydrated skin. This improvement in overall skin health also helps to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Skin should look and feel smoother immediately after application, but the results of HA5 also offer long-term benefits. This product is appropriate for all skin types, and can help patients achieve a rejuvenated appearance.
