We pride ourselves in offering our patients, scientifically proven professional skincare treatments and products. The SkinCeuticals® professional range of products and treatments is a recent addition to our services. SkinCeuticals is an advanced skincare range aimed at improving skin health.
Born from decades of skin cancer research that led to pivotal breakthroughs in antioxidants, SkinCeuticals high potency formulas are concentrated in pure actives and proven to penetrate optimally into skin. The Power of Antioxidants – Research shows that ageing skin is the result of more than just natural ageing. Exposure to environmental elements like sunlight, smoke and air pollution causes photo ageing in the skin which not only leads to the formation of lines, wrinkles and discolouration – but it may also lead to serious skin conditions, including skin cancer.
Studies prove that antioxidants effectively neutralise chemical reactions generated when skin is exposed to environmental attacks.
SkinCeuticals focuses on three fundamental elements: prevention, protection and correction. Suitable for men and women of all skin types and colours, SkinCeuticals is formulated to Prevent signs of premature ageing by neutralising free radicals, Protect healthy skin from harmful UV rays through sunscreen filters and Correct by reducing the visible signs of ageing to restore a youthful appearance and radiant complexion.
SkinCeuticals was founded in 1997 by renowned American dermatologist and scientist, Dr Sheldon Pinnell, and is now being used by dermatologists, plastic surgeons and medi-spas for daily homecare and to complement aesthetic procedures.
At Elite Plastic & Cosmetic Surgery Group, we use the SkinCeuticals skincare range because of its emphasis on antioxidants (the phytochemicals, vitamins and other nutrients that protect our cells from damage caused by free radicals) and superior SPFs to guard against sun damage and other causes of environmental ageing. The SkinCeutical products and professional treatments effectively prevent further damage, rehabilitate and restore the skin, producing optimal results and successfully rejuvenating the appearance.
SkinCeuticals Skincare Range
The SkinCeuticals skincare range is suitable for all skin types and is based around the powerful skin rejuvenating effects of prescription strength retinol (vitamin A) and the combined protective antioxidant properties of Vitamin C, Vitamin E, Ferulic Acid and Phloretin.
The Comprehensive range of SkinCeuticals includes products for:
Cleansing and toning
A variety of active ingredients such as hydroxy acids, botanical extracts and cleansing agents, lift impurities and oils, gently exfoliate dead skin cells and balance pH levels.
Prevention – ANTIOXIDANTS PREVENT SKIN DAMAGE FROM THE INSIDE OUT
UV rays, infrared radiation, pollution and lifestyle factors generate damaging free radicals that prematurely age the skin. SkinCeuticals antioxidants neutralise these unstable molecules, acting as a second line of defence against photodamage and accelerated skin ageing. In addition to preventing damage, SkinCeuticals antioxidants have been proven to improve the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, laxity, and hyperpigmentation by neutralising free radicals and stimulating collagen production.
Protection – EFFECTIVE PROTECTION AGAINST PHOTOAGEING
The SkinCeuticals line of sunscreens provides broad spectrum UVA/UVB protection formulated with Z-COTE® transparent zinc oxide which protects the skin from the entire spectrum of damaging UV rays, not just sunburn. Unlike the pasty, white zinc oxide sunscreens of the past, SkinCeuticals sunscreens are formulated with cosmetically elegant textures.
Correction – TARGETED TREATMENTS FOR SPECIFIC SKIN CONCERNS
Reparative products combine anti-ageing, lightening and exfoliating ingredients to help rehabilitate the skin, reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and correct discoloration and loss of elasticity for a healthier, more youthful complexion.
Moisturising – HYDRATED SKIN IS HEALTHY SKIN
SkinCeuticals moisturizers are carefully formulated with multi-functional ingredients that nourish, protect and exfoliate skin as they hydrate and restore elasticity.
An effective skincare regime not only helps to provide you with more youthful, radiant skin, but also goes steps further to correct previous skin damage while protecting it against future damage and skin conditions. SkinCeuticals products and treatments are suitable for all skin types:
