SkinMedica’s Philosophy

pyramidAt SkinMedica®, we believe everyone deserves to have naturally radiant skin. That’s why we’ve dedicated years of research to formulating advanced skin care products that rejuvenate skin.

Our entire aesthetic product line is based on the science of the skin’s own healing abilities. Our scientifically proven recovery compounds include essential ingredients ranging from vitamins C and E to retinol to TNS®, our patented blend of growth factors, soluble collagen, antioxidants and matrix proteins.

The impact is clear – fine lines are reduced, age spots and discoloration fade, and skin texture and elasticity is improved. All results of our commitment to creating a lifelong skin care solution for healthier skin.
