What Is SkinMedica?

We offer a suite of enhancements that are formulated according to the latest scientific anti-aging research. When you’re looking for skincare that cleanses, moisturizes, rejuvenates, and protects, SkinMedica products can do all of this and more. Best of all, the range of products is suitable for any skin type.

SkinMedica creates products that are the perfect combination of skin rejuvenation and innovative science.

The knowledgeable staff at Self Care LA will help you harness your skin’s own healing properties and stimulate it for gorgeous, radiant results. Unlike over-the-counter beauty products that promise quick fixes, SkinMedica is backed by research. Each selection contains medical-grade ingredients found to support the long-term health of your skin and helps stop the clock on facial aging.

For example, SkinMedica created their patented Tissue Nutrient Solution (TNS), one of the first growth factor topical solutions, which has shown in clinical trials to successfully improve the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, skin tone, and texture.

Private Consultation in Los Angeles

Skin care is a process. You splash water on your face, you experiment with different lotions and cleansers, and you experience the repercussions of your choices in both the short term and the long term. But to get compelling answers as to why some products work better than others, you need a doctor’s opinion.

Rather than engaging in an endless trial-and-error attempt to replenish your complexion with inferior over-the-counter products, you deserve to get it right the first time around. Dr. Aggarwal can suggest which SkinMedica solutions to apply to the specific range of skin issues you are enduring. 

Call (310) 856-9583 to schedule your dermatological consultation with a true medical expert. In the meantime, please visit our blog and bring any questions that may arise to your appointment with Dr. Aggarwal. 

During your consultation, we will get a clear understanding of your cosmetic desires as well as your skin’s individual needs in order to create an individualized beauty plan to keep your skin healthy and radiant. After a brief physical exam, we will discuss your medical history before strategizing the optimal skincare regimen for you. 

SkinMedica Products

At Self Care LA, we understand that everyone’s skin type and needs are unique. We prefer SkinMedica because it can be safely used on various skin types and tones. For instance, the Retinol Complex comes with varying strengths of retinol (a rejuvenation powerhouse) that can be applied to a variety of skin types, from sensitive to oily.

The following list entails some of our favorite SkinMedica products to use for anti-aging and complexion correction.

TNS Essential Serum

Patients looking for a transformational treatment that improves the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, skin tone and texture need to look no further than the TNS Essential Serum, NewBeauty magazine dubbed TNS “Youth in a bottle” in 2017. TNS stands for Tissue Nutrient Solution because it cradles the essential minerals within the skin on a cellular level. This skin rejuvenating treatment is one of the few all-in-one serums appropriate for all skin types.

Lytera

For patients struggling with discoloration or hyperpigmentation, Lytera is an advanced pigment correcting serum that restores radiant, luminous skin. Lytera can correct stubborn discoloration regardless of skin type in as little as two weeks. Lytera 2.0 is non-hydroquinone and retinol-free.[2]

Total Defense + Repair

Sunscreen is a must for healthy skin. SkinMedica’s Total Defense + Repair goes further by offering UV protection and defense against harmful infrared rays (heat) as well as a reduction in fine lines and wrinkles.[3] This rejuvenating superscreen absorbs easily and doesn’t feel greasy, making it perfect for daily use.

GlyPro Firming Lotion

With GlyPro, there is finally a firming lotion that hydrates and refreshes the skin while keeping it soft and smooth. Formulated with alpha hydroxy acid, olive leaf extract, and caffeine, the GlyPro firming lotion tones the skin at the same time it hydrates your signature shine.[4]

Regardless of which product – or combination of products – speak to your skincare needs, Self Care LA will answer the call. Contact our offices in Los Angeles or Santa Monica to recapture your ideal complexion

Amazing Results

One of skin’s most magical qualities is how responsive it is. You press on it and it bounces back joyously. But if the spring in your skin begins to skip a beat, you can bolster its elasticity gradually and intuitively. SkinMedica products are formulated for daily use, so you can monitor your progress over time. With each application, you will notice a marked improvement. If your results do not live up to your expectations, however, you can alter your skincare regimen. Just like skin itself, your choice of products can be responsive and expressive, courtesy of SkinMedica.

Complementary and Alternative Procedures 

A regular skincare regimen is essential to maintain the health of your skin. When a consistent daily beauty routine is combined with anti-aging, aesthetic treatments like dermal fillers and Botox Cosmetic, SkinMedica can help keep your skin glowing and youthful.
