Keeping You Beautiful
There are many beauty products on the market to maintain your skin. Here are some that our aestheticians recommend. We will consult with you in our Lancaster office to help you treat your skin.
Smoothing Body Lotion
If healthy, more beautiful skin is your goal, consider the Replenix line of skin care products. Replenix contains a patent-pending formula that is composed of 90% polyphenol isolates, the active ingredient in green tea. These antioxidants counteract the effects of free radicals and decrease redness to give you the youthful glow you’ve always wanted.
In addition, these antioxidants have anti-inflammatory and anticarcinogenic properties to keep skin healthy and because these products are non-comedogenic, they’re gentle, yet effective; even the most sensitive of skin types can benefit from Replenix products.
At Medical Cosmetics, one of our favorite Replenix product is the All-Trans-Retinol Smoothing Body Lotion. This lotion features the latest in stem cell technology and is both redefining and deeply nourishing to provide unparalleled results. If you’re looking to both lift your skin and address sagging, the Smoothing Body Lotion can do just that, as well as protect against free radicals.
The revolutionary line of SkinMedica products was created over 10 years ago by a specialist named Dr. Richard Fitzpatrick. He wanted his patients to have the best skin care they could get, so he formulated a line of products that include skin rejuvinators such as Vitamin C, Vitamin E, retinol, salicylic acid, and tea tree oil. These high-quality ingredients work to provide healthy, youthful skin for any age or skin type.
SkinMedica’s scientfically proven, top-selling products have won awards by several notable beauty reviewers such as Allure, Martha Stewart, InStyle, Cosmopolitan, Beauty Choice, and more.
With its TNS (Tissue Nutrient Solution) line of serums and creams, SkinMedica has become the first skin care product ever to use a blend of naturally occurring proteins to help firm, illuminate, and rejuvinate your skin. The powerful combination of amino acids, proteins, and antioxidants is so effective against sun damage and aging, it’s been considered an alternative to plastic surgery.
SkinMedica is one of the many revitalizing Allergan products included in our Brilliant Distinctions rewards program.
Jan Marini Skin Research
(JMSR) has been a pioneer in technologically advanced skincare since 1994. Our esthetician, Michelle discovered for herself the dramatic difference JMSR products make to her own complexion twelve years ago. Michelle confesses that she was never told she had beautiful skin until after using Jan Marini products. JMSR has been awarded “Beauty Choice’s” Best Anti-Aging Skin Care System for 4 consecutive years.
Rejuvenation of the skin through patented Vitamin C& DMAE technology improves the appearance of wrinkles, skin firmness, and also creates a lifted and radiant look. The dynamic resurfacing products target textural concerns while brightening the skin and providing multifaceted resurfacing benefits. JMSR also offers a variety of hydrating solutions to fit every age and skin type. Within this line are some amazing “Accelerator” products, which provide dramatic and exceptional results in restoring the skin’s youthfulness and vitality.
Jan Marini also offers a revolutionary new product designed to target and reduce the appearance of cellulite. CelluliTx has been called a “game changer” and is developed with 11 key ingredients (including retinol, aminophylline, and caffeine) to promote collagen and tighten the skin, giving you a smoother, firmer, and more youthful looking area.
Neova is the first clinical skin care company to bring real innovation to the photo aging (sun damage) category by introducing Copper Peptide Complex technology products. Neova is among the first skin care brands to make the association between DNA damage and premature skin aging and provides complete, continuous and optimized correction with DNA Repair and Copper Combination Therapy skin care.
Clinical research has demonstrated that copper and DNA repair play fundamental roles in skin health. Copper is a powerful collagen and elastin promoter and plays an antioxidative role in the body, increasing the benefits of natural tissue-building processes. Neova is wonderful for all skin types, especially sensitive skin. Michelle, our esthetician, also loves this line for its non-drying gentle cleanser and the bio-available copper therapy, which really works.
“No other company has harnessed copper therapy for the skin like Neova,” she says. “I love alternating my products to give myself a variety of rejuvenating anti-aging skin care nourishment and Neova is definitely part of my skin care regimen.”

Body and Facial Sunscreen
EltaMD sunscreens help prevent sunburn and decrease the risk of skin cancer and early skin aging caused by the sun, when used with other sun protection measures. EltaMD sunscreens are formulated with transparent zinc oxide and are noncomedogenic, sensitivity-free, fragrance-free and paraben-free.
EltaMD broad-spectrum sunscreens provide safe, broad-spectrum ultraviolet (UV) protection. A broad-spectrum sunscreen helps prevent sunburn and if used as directed with other sun protection measures, decreases the risk of skin cancer and early skin aging caused by the sun. Ultraviolet, or UV rays, are part of the invisible energy that comes from the sun. UVA (aging) rays account for 95% of our sun exposure. They cause skin aging and contribute to skin cancer. UVA rays penetrate deeply into the skin layers, damaging collagen and cells which leads to wrinkling, hyperpigmentation and loss of elasticity. UVB (burning) rays mostly affect the outer layer of the skin. They cause sunburns and tanning that increase the risk of skin cancer and other disorders. The risk for skin cancer doubles in people who have had five or more sunburns. Skin Cancer Foundation (Nov. 2010)
