The right skincare products can have a great impact on the health of your skin, but finding the products that work for you can be a challenge. At Beautique Medical in Knoxville, TN we believe finding the right skincare products for you should be a top priority for your beauty regimen. One of our favorite skincare lines is SkinMedica: a collection of innovative science-based products for total skin rejuvenation.
SkinMedica: Results Rooted in Science
What can be better than skincare products that are rooted in science? This particular line combines the best scientific formulas to cleanse, correct, protect, brighten, and hydrate your skin. The use of these products is as simple as finding what works for you and following the directions on the bottle.
Whether it’s with a particular system or products that you can pick-and-choose to customize your skincare, there are several SkinMedica products available to our patients. Some of these products include:
Procedure 360 System
Procedure 360 System is a comprehensive skincare line that includes a cleanser, a restorative ointment, a TNS ceramide treatment cream, and SPF protection. The main feature of this system is the Post Procedure Repair Complex, which includes a revolutionary growth factor. The Procedure 360 System is formulated to help patients more quickly recover from cosmetic treatments and enjoy results up to two days sooner.
The Acne System is a three-step system to control and clear up acne. The system includes a purifying foaming wash, purifying toner, and acne treatment toner. The keys to this system are the active ingredients salicylic acid and benzoyl peroxide, which gently cleanse the skin of all acne-causing bacteria.
TNS Eye Repair and Illuminating Eye Cream
TNS Eye Repair is a product that reduces the appearance of fine lines and dark circles around the eyes. TNS contains skin-supporting peptides to improve hydration and includes Vitamins A, C, and E as well as other unique ingredients. The TNS Illuminating Eye Cream also contains ingredients to enhance the tone and texture of the skin around the eyes.
HA5 is a rejuvenating hydration product formulated with high-grade hyaluronic acid. This serum promotes overall skin health and immediately softens skin, smooths the appearance of fine lines. It also works well with other skincare products.
Essential Defense is a small collection of sheer, lightweight, broad-spectrum sun protectants that shield the skin from both UVA and UVB rays. Essential Defense is a diverse sunscreen that is compatible with other products and can be used post-procedure.
Total Defense + Repair
Total Defense + Repair is a unique collection of sun protectants that shield the skin from UV light while also rejuvenating and rehydrating the skin. These products are designed to support aging skin and are appropriate for post-procedure.
Professional peels are a trio of clinical-strength chemical peels to help rejuvenate and restore skin. These are performed at our clinic. The Illuminize Peel refreshes skin for a vibrant and radiant tone, the Rejuvenize Peel smooths the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and the Vitalize Peel revitalizes aging skin with concentrated Retinol.
What You Can Expect With SkinMedica
For treatment at our clinic using this skincare line, there are a few steps that you can expect to be involved before, during, and after:
Before you can use any of these products, we require a consultation to learn about your unique skin needs. We will examine your skin to identify issues, talk about your specific skin concerns, and determine your expectations of these products.
Because many of these products are designed to be use post-procedure or after cosmetic treatments, we will determine the best products for you based on any treatments you are currently having. We may also discuss any possible drug allergies you may have.
Products and Treatment
When we find the ideal treatments for you, we will provide you with recommended usage or specific directions for how or when to use the products. If you are using these products after a cosmetic treatment, we may advise new usage directions.
A chemical peel will require an outpatient appointment. The peel is performed by one of our skilled technicians, who will cleanse your skin, apply the peel serum, and guide you through the rest of your treatment. You will be given post-treatment directions to follow after a chemical peel, which will include advice to avoid direct sunlight and how to best care for skin after the treatment.
After you have used these skincare products, we may schedule a follow-up after 4 to 8 weeks to determine if this product is producing the results you desire. We may then tweak the products you use or recommend additional cosmetic treatments to achieve desired appearance goals. If you have had a chemical peel, we generally recommend scheduling a regular peel appointment at least once every 2 to 3 months to produce the desired results.
Results from skincare products take time. However, these products are high-grade and fast-acting, so most patients are able to enjoy results quickly. The majority of patients notice immediate improvements in the texture of the skin and typically enjoy the full results of the product within 2 to 4 weeks.
