Medical-Grade Cosmeceutical Products

Medical grade cosmeceuticals bring together the elegance of cosmetics with the effectiveness of medicine. Scientifically tested with results published in medical journals, these products are available only through physicians. Cosmeceuticals are superior to department store cosmetics as they contain higher concentrations of active ingredients that treat your skin at the cellular level, providing direct anti-aging benefits:

  • Ongoing skin transformation
  • Increased collagen and elastin production
  • Reduced fine lines and wrinkles
  • Decreased hyperpigmentation
  • Promotion of cell renewal and division

Skin Basic recommends and sells the following brands of cosmeceuticals:

Glytone - Antioxidant Anti-Aging Serum. Time released antioxidant THD Ascorbate, the most technologically advanced form of Vitamin C, improves the skin’s appearance by making skin look as if no collagen has been lost. It also protects against cell damage caused by free radicals. Time released antioxidant Vitamin E helps protect against cell damage and nourish the skin. Red Tea Flavonoids help minimize skin damage from free radicals.

Photozyme Youth Recovery Serum – Visibly reduce the signs of aging caused by sun damage. 80% of skin aging is due to the sun. While your skin’s DNA is subject to daily environmental assaults accelerating skin aging, your body can only process and repair about 50% of this damage in any given day. Photozyme Youth Recovery Serum utilizes a targeted delivery of natural repair enzymes called DNA Enzyme Technology which help prevent the signs of skin aging from surfacing. Plant-derived enzymes mimic the body’s natural response to photo-damage. The enzymes are encapsulated in a liposomal delivery system which drives them into the skin and delivers the enzymes into the cell. The enzymes search and adhere to the damaged DNA strand only (search & destroy). Your cell’s natural process takes over and the damage is then extracted or cut out (your body’s natural response). Your DNA mimics a clean strand and replicates to a healthy cell. Because Photozyme Youth Recovery Serum helps the skin repair the “other” 50% of damaged DNA and provides faster DNA recovery, it offers added protection/prevention to the UV damage suffered from sun exposure. In addition, Photozyme holds off collagen degradation in the lower layers of the skin, therefore helping to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. It is non-comedogenic, and paraben-free. Photozyme fits perfectly with all skincare regimens and attacks both past and present damage!

Rejuvaphyl® Rejuvenating Complex - MDRejuvena is at the forefront of skin health featuring Phytochromatic MD® Complex, a naturally-derived, plant-based ingredient clinically proven to provide a number of important skincare benefits. Originating from a molecule necessary to sustain plant life and known for its healing properties in humans, Chlorophyll, clinically shown to reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, photo damage, and redness is bound with Copper, an essential element for maintaining optimal skin health with proven healing, anti-inflammatory, and antimicrobial properties and needed for a number of important enzymes that have various functions in the skin. As skin ages, changes in these copper-dependent enzymes can result in fine lines and wrinkles, loss of firmness and uneven skin tone. Phytochromatic MD® Complex is the joining of these elements within a unique delivery system that allows for slow release of copper in the skin. This potent copper chlorophyllin antioxidant including vitamin C, vitamin E, green tea extract and other powerful ingredients is proven to provide a number of powerful anti-aging benefits and is ideal for patients looking for a more natural alternative with proven results; this complex provides a multi-functional approach to dynamically improve the signs of aging:

  • Fine lines & Coarse wrinkles
  • Skin laxity & roughness
  • Uneven pigmentation Age spots Blotchiness
  • Sallowness

Regenica® Rejuvenating Duel Serum - A skin care system made with the power and promise of regenerative science. Its MRCx™ next generation growth factor technology is formulated to signal your skin’s natural repair and renewal mechanisms to reveal your most beautiful skin. Regenica® was developed by Dr. Gail Naughton, one of the original developers of TNS® — an early growth factor technology. As she continued and advanced her research, she was struck by the fact that an unborn child could have surgery, yet have no scars at birth. She studied what was unique about the pre-natal environment and found a way to mimic it, so that she could produce the same type of multi-potent growth factors that are associated with scarless healing. This led to her development of MRCx™, the latest breakthrough and most advanced growth factor technology. The high concentration of growth factors at 95%, combined with innovative anti-aging ingredients, supports your skin’s natural repair and renewal mechanisms to restore beautiful, healthy skin. Regenica® is designed for patients who want to advance to the next level of skin care to help prevent and reverse the signs of aging. Used alone or in combination with other products, it’s part of a balanced skin care regimen to restore optimal skin health.

Clinical studies show that when used consistently, Regenica®:

  • Improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
  • Reduce the appearance of pores
  • Even out skin tone
  • Reveal a more radiant complexion.

Skinbetter - The science team of aesthetic experts who developed Restylane® and Dysport® has a profound understanding of skin aging and what it takes to help defy the effects of time. Their products are developed with a single goal: to deliver radiant, youthful skin that reflects the beauty of science. Products include:

  • EYE Smoothing Daily Treatment Cream - Recharge the delicate under eye area! InterFuse™ technology revolutionary transport system masterfully delivers large sized skincare ingredients faster, deeper and with pinpoint precision as it drives a blend of messenger peptides across the barrier to invigorate collagen.
