By Chloé Gronow / 06 May 2019

SkinCeuticals strives to improve the appearance of skin and promote long term skin health through research, education and innovation.

The results-driven skincare brand has now developed two exciting new retail kits delivering high quality, proven formulations that reflect and enhance the care you provide to your patients in your clinic. The kits reflect SkinCeuticals scientific approach to skincare and the development of effective topical regimens designed to address the needs of two common skin concerns frequently seen in clinics: ageing skin on the one hand and ageing, blemish prone skin on the other. 

AGE RENEWAL SYSTEM

The Age Renewal System is suitable for patients who wish to tackle loss of elasticity and diminish the signs of photodamage caused by Atmospheric Skin Ageing. It comprises three high performance products that improve the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and skin tone whilst safeguarding it against further damage.

Dr Fiona McCarthy welcomes the new SkinCeuticals Skin Systems. Dr McCarthy initially embarked on a career within the NHS. Today she continues to work part time as a consultant oncologist, specialising in dermatological cancers, whilst heading up her own skin clinic and pursuing her interest in a holistic and preventative approach to ageing. 

She says: “I am excited to be able to offer my patients the Age Renewal Skin System as an introduction to evidence-based anti-ageing skincare. This kit combines three of my favourite products in the SkinCeuticals range and the ones I recommend the most to my patients. The powerful protective antioxidant effect of C E Ferulic, the collagen stimulation and reduction of fine lines and wrinkles by Retinol 0.3 and the hydrating and plumping action of H.A. Intensifier ensures that patients will see a visible anti-ageing effect with the introduction of these products.” 

  • C E Ferulic 30ml is a patented triple antioxidant serum that fights Atmospheric Skin Ageing to deliver firmer, fresher and radiant skin. The combination of vitamins C and E combined with ferulic acid delivers eight times the skin’s natural protection again environmental aggressors1. It is formulated to provide not only cosmetic benefits, but also to prevent future skin damage by protecting against UVA, UVB, IR-A, and ozone pollution all of which slow down the skin ageing process.
  • H.A. Intensifier 30ml is a fast-absorbing serum that boosts the skin’s hyaluronic acid levels by +30% to support the skin’s matrix, resulting in improved firmness and plumpness2. Additionally, it delivers surface hydration which makes the skin feel smoother and more supple immediately after use. Recently indicated also for use in periorbital and perioral areas, H.A. Intensifier is clinically proven to improve the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and skin texture in four weeks3.
  • Retinol 0.3 30ml is a potent night cream featuring 0.3% pure retinol enhanced with the latest stabilisation and delivery technologies to ensure a steady, even release with minimal irritation. Its benefits include improving the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and dark spots, as well as minimising pores by accelerating cellular turnover and enhancing collagen production. Retinol 0.3 is a good first introduction to using retinol as part of an anti-ageing skincare regimen. 

 CLARIFYING SKIN SYSTEM

The Clarifying Skin System has been specifically designed for patients experiencing signs of problematic skin and ageing simultaneously, acting on blemishes while providing targeted exfoliation – tackling concerns such as inflammation, along with key signs of ageing such as hyperpigmentation and fine lines.

The kit includes three clinically effective products to help with the unique set of ageing concerns experienced by patients with imperfections; as oil glands enlarge with age, pores increase in size and skin’s texture becomes rough. 

Dr Benji Dhillon, well-renowned facial aesthetics doctor and co-founder of the new Define clinic in Beaconsfield, says: “There aren’t a great deal of kits available for newcomers to cosmeceutical skincare that deliver results. The new SkinCeuticals Clarifying Skin System is one of the first kits to provide first timers an effective, easy to follow morning regimen to manage their blemish prone, ageing skin. The kit features three products that work together to help promote cell turnover, whilst improving blemishes and skin smoothness.” 

  • Blemish + Age Cleanser Gel 240ml thoroughly cleanses skin removing impurities and excess oils. It contains salicylic acid which promotes desquamation and glycolic acid that acts as an effective exfoliant. Together they accelerate exfoliation to decongest pores, reduce imperfections and deliver a more even skin tone.
  • Blemish + Age Defense 30ml is a powerful lightweight corrective serum clinically proven to help prevent the formation of blemishes and clogged pores whilst improving the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and uneven skin tone4. Key ingredients include dioic acid, which helps to regulate sebum production and discolouration, plus salicylic acid, glycolic acid and citric acid. The serum has been shown to be as effective as tretinoin (0.0025%), demonstrating significantly better results in specific criteria such as improving skin tone, blotchiness and reducing total lesions5.
  • Phyto Corrective 30ml is a lightweight oil-free moisturising serum to soothe reactive skin. Enriched with botanical extracts, it hydrates the skin for a clearer, fresher looking complexion whilst also calming irritated skin to reduce the appearance of redness and give a fresher looking complexion. 

The kits present you, as skincare experts, with opportunities to discuss effective management of ageing skin with your patients and so introduce them to evidence-based cosmeceutical skincare. Your patients will find that the three step daily regimens are very user-friendly, thus making the move to advanced skincare feel a logical and progressive next step in taking a long-term approach to the care of their skin.
