The care you take of your skin has a direct impact on its appearance. Modern environmental pollutants, UV exposure, and the simple aging process all impact the skin’s appearance. Countering these things with a professional-grade skincare regimen can slow or even prevent some of the worst damage, helping to keep the skin healthy, soft, and glowing year-round. 

At Advanced Cosmetic Surgery, we have opted to carry products from SkinMedica®, a company whose products are rooted in science and formulated to prevent and correct several common skin concerns. Available as stand-alone options or to help you maintain cosmetic results, the SkinMedica® products we carry can be combined to produce specific results, regardless of skin type. 

SkinMedica® Treatments 

The entire line of SkinMedica® products ensures patients achieve clearer, healthier, and more youthful-looking skin. Dr. Levi J. Young of Advanced Cosmetic Surgery recommends many of their products for patients with a wide range of issues with their skin that they would like to improve. Some of the more common skin concerns that can be improved with SkinMedica® products include, but are not limited to: 

  • Fine lines and wrinkles 
  • Sun damage and sun protection 
  • Dull skin 
  • Hyperpigmentation/hypopigmentation 
  • Skin texture and tone 
  • Acne and blemishes 
  • Aging skin 
  • Poor skin elasticity and sagging

Chemical Peels from SkinMedica® 

In addition to at-home skincare products from SkinMedica®, we also offer chemical peels from this trusted and science-based company. Peels from SkinMedica® that are available at our office include: 

  • Illuminize® is an incredibly gentle peel that can improve overall skin appearance 
  • Vitalize® is a mild peel that addresses fine lines, deep wrinkles, and textural roughness. 
  • Rejuvenize™ is a medium-strength peel that addresses fine lines, deep wrinkles, pigmentation irregularities, and other skin imperfections. 

Some peels require downtime, while others allow for an immediate return to normal.  

Which SkinMedica® Product Is Right for Me? 

When you speak with our team at Advanced Cosmetic Surgery, we can thoroughly evaluate your skin and talk to you about specific imperfections you would like to improve. Then, our provider can recommend the best product or combination of SkinMedica® products to help you reach your skincare goals. We find that many patients who have tried over-the-counter skincare products can’t always see the results they desire, and this is the point when medical-grade products such as SkinMedica® may provide the changes and improvements patients strive for.
