Skinceuticals

skinceuticals logoThe Center for Facial and Body Rejuvenation proudly offers five new products from SkinCeuticals. SkinCeuticals produces clinical-grade skincare treatments — created in accordance with the highest medical standards and using only pharmaceutical-quality ingredients — as well as at-home treatments which continue the SkinCeuticals regimen with products of equal quality.

While you may purchase some products online, making SkinCeuticals products available through authorized and professional board-certified facial plastic surgeons ensures that you receive authentic, safe and full-strength products and personalized advice from your skincare provider and SkinCeuticals professionals. Board-certified facial plastic surgeons can also recommend SkinCeuticals products as a part of your at-home regimen to maximize your benefits.

Extensive clinical testing shows that SkinCeuticals products work. Based on 40 years of science and research in the antioxidants field, you can rely on SkinCeuticals products to correct many common skin problems effectively — including pigmentation issues, fine age lines and diminished skin tone — as well as provide potent, natural protection from sun damage and other enhancements.

Advanced Pigment Corrector

If you suffer from skin discoloration, SkinCeuticals’ Advanced Pigment Corrector can help. Applied as a lotion, the Advanced Pigment Corrector helps fade dark spots, regardless of origin, and promote an even skin tone.

This application also exfoliates, improving your skin’s radiance and brightness. Safe for all skin types, the corrector does not include parabens, fragrance or dyes and is non-comedogenic.

Applied once or twice daily to dry skin, the Advanced Pigment Corrector’s active ingredients hydroxyphenoxy propionic acid, ellagic acid and salicylic acid work together to even skin tone and approve appearance.

C E Ferulic®

C E Ferulic®, a daytime Vitamin C serum, can help improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and improve skin tone. Containing a combination of Vitamins C and E and ferulic acid, the synergistic anti-oxidant formula helps neutralize free-radicals, preventing ozone-related skin damage and providing enhanced environmental protection.

The serum works well with all skin types and a single application provides protection and benefits for a minimum of 72 hours. With continued use, you will also enjoy a brighter complexion.

Apply one to five drops once per day to the face, neck and chest area to see results. C E Ferulic® serum works best when applied after cleansing and toning but before applying other products.

Phloretin CF

Phloretin CF combines three active ingredients — phloretin, Vitamin C and ferulic acid — synergistically to produce a powerful protectant against infrared and ozone-produced free radicals. The results minimize skin discoloration, the appearance of fine lines and uneven skin tone.

The serum remains effective once absorbed into the skin for a minimum of 72 hours and contains no parabens, fragrances or dyes. Normal, oily and combination skin will all benefit from Phloretin CF.

Apply one to five drops to clean, dry skin of the face, neck and chest once per day before applying other products. Vitamins C formulations will change color with exposure to air and light but will remain effective.

Physical Fusion UV Defense SPF 50

For the ultimate sun protection, Physical Fusion offers 100 percent physical filters against harmful UV rays, with water-resistance of up to 40 minutes, and helps improve skin tone and natural radiance.

The weightless SPF also provides an adaptable, universal tint — utilizing translucent color spheres — to help enhance and balance your natural skin tone. All skin types may benefit from the SPF including very sensitive skin.

Shake well and apply liberally to the face, chest and neck at least 15 minutes before significant sun exposure. Reapply as necessary or at minimum every two hours with continued sun.

Sheer Physical UV Sunscreen SPF 50

Sheer Physical UV Sunscreen SPF 50 offers matte, weightless and ultra-sheer sun protection without using harsh chemical filters.

The sunscreen, whose active ingredients include titanium dioxide and artemia salina, provides broad-spectrum, 100 percent physical protection from harmful UV rays.

Made without parabens and also non-comedogenic, you can use this SPF regardless of your skin type, even if you have the most sensitive skin.

Apply liberally to your face, neck and chest 15 minutes before sun exposure and reapply every two hours with continued sun. You can enjoy protection for up to 40 minutes when wet.

HA Intensifier


Hyaluronic acid naturally encourages the skin to retain moisture, producing the plumpness, smoothness and tone that is the hallmark of young, healthy-looking skin. Skinceuticals’s H.A. Intensifier corrective serum restores the skin’s lost hyaluronic acid which naturally declines over time. Clinical trials have shown that daily use of the H.A. Intensifier can increase your skin’s hyaluronic acid levels by as much as 30 percent.

In addition to a high concentration of hyaluronic acid, Skinceuticals’s H.A. Intensifier contains proxylane (a sugar-protein compound which aids moisture retention), licorice root and botanical extracts which help maintain the presence of hyaluronic acid in the skin. This special formulation maximizes the treatments effectiveness and your results which include improvements to the appearance of marionette lines, nasolabial folds and crow’s feet in addition to increased skin hydration.

Apply 4-6 drops to the hand and gently work into the forehead, cheeks, chin and neck areas daily. If you use a SkinCeuticals vitamin C antioxidant serum, apply H.A. Intensifier afterward, as a morning treatment, and before a SkinCeuticals sunscreen. Apply after retinol at night if used. The product is ideal for use after dermal fillers but consult with your board-certified facial plastic surgeon before use. H.A. Intensifier corrective serum is also ideal for all skin types.

Triple Lipid Restore 2:4:2


Lipids benefit the skin in many ways. They help protect the skin, nourish it and support its natural ability to self-repair. Triple Lipid Restore 2:4:2 is an anti-again cream that supplements your skin’s natural lipids to restore these revitalizing benefits which include improved skin smoothness and tone, pore appearance and luminousness.

Specifically, Triple Lipid Restore 2:4:2 contains two percent pure ceramides, four percent natural cholesterol and two percent fatty acids — a formulation aimed at delivering an abundance of skin restoring cholesterol to the skin, a first in skin treatments. This blend has been shown to improve skin hydration while also being fast absorbing and ideal for all skin types.

Apply a small amount up to twice daily, softening the product with your fingertips and using gentle circular motions. Triple Lipid Restore 2:4:2 benefits the face, neck and chest. Apply after a SkinCeuticals vitamin C antioxidant serum in the morning and before a SkinCeuticals sunscreen. Apply after retinol application if used at night.

Discoloration Defense


Skin discoloration and loss of youthful brightness and skin tone can tarnish the look of otherwise healthy skin. Using a unique formulation of skin benefiting acids, Discoloration Defense can improve these unwanted signs. In as little as two weeks of daily use, users can see up to a 60 percent reduction in discoloration, including difficult post-acne scarring.

Using carefully selected concentrations of tranexamic acid, kojic acid and HEPES (a pH-balancing compound), Discoloration Defense can brighten skin, improve skin tone and minimize brown patches, with results proven in clinical trials. This special formulation can also help minimize the recurrence of future discoloration with continued use.

Apply 3-5 drops of this skin discoloration serum to the face twice daily. Use after a SkinCeuticals vitamin C serum in the morning and after a SkinCeuticals broad spectrum SPF 50+ sunscreen if used. Use of Discoloration Defense complements chemical peels or non-ablative laser treatments but consult your board-certified facial plastic surgeon before use.
