'Turn it Over' with SkinMedica Skin Care Products

UW Health Transformations Jeune Skin Care Aestheticians Angie Byer, Lisa Klein and Danielle Kalscheur

When it comes to your skin, it is changing, one day at a time. Actually, it is constantly changing. Did you know that we shed millions of dead skin cells daily? In your lifetime, you will shed enough dead skin cells to fill a large suitcase. That being said, some of you may have an urge to get out your vacuum cleaner.

 

Here at UW Health Transformations, we offer many different skin care lines, including SkinMedica. This exceptional skin care line based in Houston, Texas, offers professional skin care products combined with nearly two decades of research and clinical experience. They are consistently on the cutting edge with technology, creating products that improve the appearance of the skin.

 

Two of those products are:

  • TNS Essential Serum
  • TNS Recovery Complex

These premier products contain a patented formulation of human growth factors, soluble collagen, antioxidants and matrix proteins, helping to improve the appearance of fine lines, skin texture and resiliency. They also aid in maintaining the benefits of cosmetic and surgical procedures.

 

The newest "kids on the block" are their improved Retinols. These revised formulations are pure Retinol. There is no Retinyl Palmitate or Retinyl Acetate. Clinical studies were done against comparable prescription strength percentages of Tretinoin (also known as: Retin-A) and showed similar visible efficacy in a 12-week comparison study. This improved formula also contains a PhytoShield Complex that encapsulates the Retinol for stabilized, targeted delivery in the skin. 77% product penetration is delivered down to the dermis versus roughly 50% dermal penetration achieved with prescription strength Tretinoin (also known as: Retin-A).

 

The dermal layer is where our network of collagen, elastin and protein substances reside. As our skin shows signs of aging due to a variety of reasons, our supporting skin structures are adversely affected - resulting in the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles and sagging skin, just to name a few things.

 

The benefits of using these new Retinols over traditional prescription Tretinoin are:

  • Increased product penetration
  • Reduced skin irritation and redness affecting our top skin layer, the epidermis

What does this mean to you? Greater results, less irritation, reduced cost compared to prescription strength Tretinoin, and no need for a prescription!

 

For those individuals who have tried or currently use prescription strength Tretinoin, but can only tolerate using it once or twice a week due to skin irritation, these new retinols may be just the ticket. Consistent, nightly use of a Retinol is a better choice than occasional use of prescription Tretinoin.

 

Other SkinMedica products available at UW Health Transformations include:

  • TNS Ceramide Treatment Cream
  • TNS Eye Repair
  • 15% AHA/BHA Cream
  • Dermal Repair Moisturizer
  • Ultra Sheer Moisturizer
  • Redness Relief Calmplex
  • Scar Recovery Gel
  • Sensitive Skin Cleanser
  • Retinol Complex - 0.25%, 0.5%, 1.0%
