Skin Care That Makes a Difference – SkinCeuticals®
To maintain and improve skin health, an effective skincare regime must contain three fundamental elements- prevention, protection, and correction.
SkinCeuticals is designed to prevent future damage, protect healthy skin, and correct previous damage. Achieving results means more than
restoring youthful, radiant skin– it means preventing serious skin conditions, like skin cancer using pure, pharmaceutical grade
ingredients with proven scientific results.
Proven as effective as the leading medical standard for treating hyperpigmentation, Pigment Regulator lightens and reduces existing
hyperpigmentation, improves overall skin tone, and protects skin from future discolorations without the potentially harmful side-effects
of harsh bleaching agents.
This patent-pending formulation combines precise concentrations of kojic acid and emblica along with a highly efficient exfoliating blend,
optimized to work by three modes of action to systematically improve uneven skin tone. Pigment Regulator inhibits the production of excess
melanin, prevents excess melanin from traveling to the skin's surface, and breaks up melanin clusters on the skin's surface to diminish existing
- Reduces brown spots, freckles, dark patches, and blotchiness
- Improves overall skin tone for a brighter, more radiant appearance
- Prevents future discolorations
- May be used daily, year-round, long term, without unhealthy side effects
A.G.E. Interrupter is specifically formulated to improve the creping, thinning appearance of mature skin caused by intrinsic or internal
aging processes such as glycation.
Glycation occurs when excess glucose molecules stick to collagen and elastin fibers, eventually binding them together and leading to the
formation of Advanced Glycation End-products (A.G.E.). Glycated collagen and elastin fibers lose the ability to function normally, and the
body cannot break them down and replace them, which leads to severe wrinkling of the skin.
A.G.E. Interrupter is a unique treatment formulated with 4% blueberry extract, 30% Proxylane™, and 0.2% phytosphingosine to help
prevent the glycation process and correct severe signs of intrinsic aging in mature skin.
- Blueberry extract slows down the process of advanced glycation end-product (A.G.E.) formation, preventing the rigidification of collagen and elastin fibers
- Proxylane™ stimulates GAG synthesis, restoring water and nutrients to the dermal epidermal junction
- Phytosphingosine helps protect the skin's barrier to alleviate discomfort associated with dry, aging skin
A.G.E. Eye Complex
This three-dimensional treatment contains a unique combination of ingredients to dramatically improve severe signs of intrinsic aging
around the eyes in mature skin.
Immediately, optical diffusers improve radiance and minimize the appearance of dark circles and capillaries. Within four to twelve weeks,
a complex of flavonoids and synergistic peptides strengthens blood vessel walls, improves lymphatic drainage, and eliminates hemoglobin's
colored end-products to dramatically improve dark circles and puffiness. By twelve weeks and beyond, blueberry extract interrupts the
formation of advanced glycation end-products (A.G.E.) and Proxylane restores water and nutrient content to the dermal epidermal junction
(D.E.J.) to increase skin elasticity and thickness for dramatic improvement of wrinkles and crow's feet.
- Optical diffusers improve radiance in tired, dull eyes
- Complex of flavonoids and synergistic peptides reduces the appearance of dark circles and diminishes puffiness and under-eye bags
- Proxylane reduces wrinkles and crow's feet
- Blueberry extract helps prevent future wrinkles and crow's feet

Lumixyl™ - Skin Brightener and Dermal Infusion Medication
A physician-dispensed cosmetic, Lumixyl™ offers an effective, non-irritating alternative for persons wishing to improve the
appearance of dark spots or pigmentation, safely and in the long term.
Developed by dermatological researchers at Stanford University, Lumixyl™ís ground-breaking technology has been shown by in
vitro studies to promote a reduction in the expression of melanin, yielding a blended, more even complexion in all skin types.
Lumixyl™ is created for patients seeking more even skin-tone including those with:
- Post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation
- Sun spots, age spots or liver spots
- Hyperpigmentation caused by systemic disease or prescription drugs
Preliminary clincical study results are being evaluated in large confirmatory trials and demonstrate the peptide's ability to yield
visible results in improving the appearance of melasma. Study participants included persons who had previously been unsuccessful following
six month terms using a hydroquinone, retinol, steroid regimen but reported visible improvements with Lumixyl™ in as little as 8
weeks with a 50% improvement after 16 weeks.
