Recommended at-home Regimens@headingTag>
At Cosmetic and Plastic Surgery of Central Pennsylvania, we recommend using SkinCeuticals and/or SkinMedica for all of your at home skin care needs. The products are clinically tested and formulated to correct signs of aging, protect healthy skin, and prevent future damage. We recommend using the “power of 3” which includes a topical antioxidant and sunscreen for daytime use and a retinol for nighttime use. SkinCeuticals CE Ferulic, Phloretin CF Gel and Physical Fusion SPF are patient favorites for their antioxidant and sunscreen protection. SkinCeuticals motto of prevent , correct, and protect helps patients maximize at-home skin care. SkinMedica TNS Essential Serum, Retinol, and Eye Repair Cream are our top SkinMedica sellers. TNS is a corrective product that helps rejuvenate your skin with its proprietary blend of growth factors, cytokines, antioxidants, collagen and proteins. As we age, the production and levels of growth factors in our skin decrease. The growth factors in TNS essential serum are important for overall skin health because they help to maintain a healthy skin structure. Without these growth factors, more lines and wrinkles develop which can make you appear older than you feel. The SkinMedica retinols , which are also patient favorite products, can help to diminish pore size, repair texture, encourage cellular renewal and minimize wrinkles. The eye repair cream can help reduce the dark circles under eyes and/or the fine wrinkles (depending upon which SkinMedica eye repair product).
Prevention, Protection, and Correction
To maintain and improve skin health, an effective skincare regimen must contain three fundamental elements: Prevention, Protection, and Correction. The SkinCeuticals product philosophy is built around these principles. Designed to prevent future damage, protect healthy skin, and correct previous damage, SkinCeuticals is committed to advanced skincare products that are backed by science.
The Gold Standard
With four generations of topical antioxidant formulations, 10 patents, and more than 200 studies published in prestigious medical journals, SkinCeuticals is a trailblazer in antioxidant science. Vitamin C in general helps neutralize free radicals to protect skin from oxidative stress and prevent visible signs of aging. CEF offers 8x Environmental protection and anti-aging benefits. Phloretin protects skin from free radical damage and helps regulate pigmentation.
These SkinMedica favorites have been clinically proven to help patients with facial rejuvenation, skin texture, and/or skin tone. Patients have visible improvements with facial aging and skin health concerns.
