Advanced Skin Care Products At A Discount
Advanced Skin Care Products - Obagi, MD Forte, Kinerase - for Reduced Prices at Skincare-MD
An advanced skin care program can reduce the effects of sun damage, as well as wrinkling, dryness and blotchy pigmentation that are often part of the natural aging process. Early treatment can also help eliminate the progression to more destructive skin problems. Advanced skin care is effective in treating teenagers with acne and those with adult-onset complexion problems. These programs can revitalize the skin of men, women, and teens with any skin type or color.
We are proud to offer a variety of effective, clinically tested advanced skin care products most of which we (doctors and staff) use personally. We customize skin care programs for patients with dry, oily or sensitive skin types, as well as for acne, pigmentary problems, wrinkling, sun damage or combinations of these conditions.
A Quick Overview of Our Advanced Skincare Products:
The Kinerase line of skin care products contain kinetin, the same natural substance that helps plants retain moisture, to help your skin regain and retain a healthier, more hydrated appearance.
The Kinerase line of skin care products provide gentle moisturization and can be used for sensitive skin, fragile skin, retinoid intolerance and rosacea, eczema or dermatitis. The Kinerase skin care products do not cause sun sensitivity, nor do they contain any skin care acids (i.e., Glycolic, Salicylic, etc.).
Many of the MD Forte advanced skin care products contain glycolic acid in different strengths. Glycolic acids are part of the Alpha Hydroxy Acid (AHA) compounds. Applying glycolic acid products results in exfoliation. As the skin becomes conditioned to glycolic compound treatments, stronger concentrations of glycolic compound can be used. This results in a deeper exfoliation without the discomfort or burning, redness or irritation. It is important to maintain the program daily (or twice a day) to avoid the buildup of keratin and dead cells. In this way, moisturizing creams will penetrate more deeply.
The Obagi-C Rx System combines a patented formula of 4% prescription strength Hydroquinone (lightening agent for uneven pigmentation) and professional strength Vitamin C to deliver superior penetration to all levels of the skin resulting in Photolumines Skin. The name was chosen to describe the more radiant, luminescent skin that results from the combination of well-known ingredients such as Vitamins C and E, hydroquinones, hyaluronidase (to help hydrate the skin), glycolics (for exfoliation) and sunscreens. True radiance comes from within as regeneration of skin is improved. The Obagi-C Rx System helps your skin become brighter with measurable radiance. This system will also smooth and hydrate your skin as well as even out your skin tone. The Obagi-C Rx System of products delivers key ingredients to all layers of the skin.
Sun damaged skin often shows early wrinkling, areas of uneven pigmentation, and areas of scaling (actinic keratoses which are precursors of skin cancer). Hormonal changes from aging, contraceptives and pregnancy can also cause brown spots. Many of these problems can be improved by using the Obagi Nu-Derm System.
The Obagi Nu-Derm Advanced Skin Care System is designed to restore health to sun and smoke damaged skin, as well as even out pigmentary problems involving the face and other areas of the body. The Nu-Derm system corrects surface discoloration and blemishes. It also penetrates into the skin to stimulate skin cell renewal, improve circulation and helps to rebuild collagen. The tretinoin (anti-oxidant Vitamin A cream—brand name Retin-A cream) in the Obagi Nu-Derm System stimulates increased vascularity to the important collagen layer of skin, thereby causing the collagen to thicken. This is the reason why fine lines tend to improve or disappear entirely. The normal barrier function of the skin is restored, making skin less sensitive and better able to hydrate properly.
Vitamin C acts as a potent antioxidant neutralizing the effects of free oxygen radicals and reversing the effects of aging. Vitamin C helps to correct sun damage, fine lines and wrinkles while providing anti-inflammatory benefits to help reduce redness and irritation caused by Retin A, lasers, and other resurfacing procedures. Professional-C Serum comes in four concentrations: 10, 15, and 20 percent so they can be tailored to the appropriate strength for each patient.
VIVITE Skincare Has Antioxidants for Beautiful Skin
Vivite Skincare System is based on exclusive GLX Technology, a unique fusion of glycolic compound and natural antioxidants. Fused together, the glycolic compound and natural antioxidants in GLX technology promote the production of hyaluronic acid, collagen, and epidermal growth factor in the skin. All of these are essential to the integrity and health of the skin. These unique formulations maximize the anti-aging benefits.
C2S combines two forms of stable Vitamin C, Salicylic Acid and Vitamin E to help normalize skin types that are prone to irritation, hyper-pigmentation, inflammatory lesions and various grades of acne. The Salicylic acid in C2S will help to normalize problem skin areas and restore sebum balance without over-drying. Pore size is reduced and skin surface is smoother with fewer blemishes. C2S provides advanced skin protection from free radicals which are known to cause skin aging and other complications. Skin will appear more hydrated and less dry, fine lines and wrinkles will diminish and skin clarity will improve.
LRS Skin Treatment (Lipid Recovery Serum) for Plump, Smoother Skin
LRS Skin Treatment (Lipid Recovery Serum) contains natural lipids, anti-inflammatory agents, nutrients and moisturizers. LRS helps to repair the lipid barrier causing skin to become more elastic and flexible. Skin becomes more plump and the surface is smoother (reducing fine lines and wrinkles). LRS is formulated as a post-treatment therapy for skin that has been depleted of its natural fatty content by the use of laser resurfacing, chemical peels, AHA treatments, dermabrasion, abrasive facial scrubs and other deep exfoliating treatments. Can be used along with other skincare programs or alone.
Tretinoin - Antioxidant That Improves Wrinkles
Tretinoin is an antioxidant that helps rejuvenate the skin by improving the texture and blood supply of the deeper collagen fibers. Tretinoin is also helpful in reversing damage caused by toxins such as smoking and irradiation from the sun. Tretinoin also helps thicken the skin; and because of this, it improves fine wrinkling. Tretinoin can be added to any skin care regime for more aggressive results. Patients new to the use of Tretinoin are encouraged to start with 0.025% tretinoin nightly to help condition the skin. This can be used daily or every other day. Once the tube is used up, you can advance to 0.05% tretinoin nightly. A cream base tretinoin is preferred over the gel form. Please call our office at 1-877-415-0600, Monday through Friday 8:30 a.m. to 7:30 p.m. EST for more details about tretinoin and its use.
Sunscreens That Exceed American Academy of Dermatology Recommendations
As with all advanced skin care systems, use of a broad spectrum sunscreen is an essential final step. It is important to note that not all sunscreens are created equal. In fact, most do not block long UVA radiation. The term "broad spectrum," a term used liberally to describe sunscreen, actually means very little. The FDA is drafting more relevant labeling laws, but these will not be in effect for several years. The labeled SPF number is a measure of protection against UVB and only some short UVA, but not long UVA. These long UVA rays are now known to cause photo-aging and are likely to be involved in the more aggressive skin cancers, such as melanoma. The sunscreens that we sell on Skincare-MD.com already exceed the American Academy of Dermatology's recommendations to the FDA in regard to criteria for Broad Spectrum Labeling.
