Medical grade skincare is the 3rd, & equally as important, component to Dr. Moses’s professional services. A thought she frequently echos is to “Be good to your skin. You’ll wear it every day for the rest of your life.” Modern day skincare can be overwhelming, costly, and confusing. Patients are often left feeling uncertain of what product is best for your skin type, where to apply it, how much to use and when to expect results. Dr. Moses helps to lead patients through this abundance of information and put together a few products that can help get your skin on the right track and target any specific areas of concern. Once you have the 3 “holy grail” products on board, there is room to add more of the niche products if desired. As Dr. Moses points out to her patients, the 3 must have products get you about 85% of the way there – the rest, whether it be an eye cream or weekly at-home peel to name a few, are just sugar on top!
At Palmetto Facial Plastics, we are pleased to offer two leading medical grade skincare lines for our patients – SkinCeuticals and Revision Skincare – each with products to efficiently and effectively address any skincare concerns. For product selections, see featured products below or visit us in the office for even more product offerings!
The 3 Skin Care MUST-HAVES for everyone!
1. Antioxidant/Vitamin C
3. Sunscreen with a physical blocker (zinc oxide titanium dioxide)
Healthy skin is crucial for providing the right canvas for applying makeup, to enhance natural beauty and create natural healthy-looking skin.
At SkinCeuticals, the mission is to improve SKIN HEALTH. SkinCeuticals as an industry leader is committed to leading the skincare industry in terms of research and innovation, and whose promise is to provide advanced skincare backed by science.
The company’s skincare philosophy centers on three main pillars: PREVENT. PROTECT. CORRECT. These principles work synergistically to provide the healthiest skin possible, and optimal anti-aging results.
SkinCeuticals promises skincare backed by science. Research and innovation are at the core of the SkinCeuticals mission, and their dedication to science has established the brand as a leader in the advanced skincare arena. The company’s founding was the direct result of a revolutionary discovery that set the standard for antioxidant formulation. SkinCeuticals continues to pioneer next-generation products that will optimize the health and beauty of the skin—and change the face of skincare for years to come.
As SkinCeuticals founding scientist and chief medical advisor, Dr. Sheldon Pinnell established SkinCeuticals as the skincare industry’s antioxidant authority while at Duke University (Dr. Moses’s Alma Mater). Dr. Pinnell’s groundbreaking, peer-reviewed research and comprehensive dermatologic knowledge resulted in the Duke University Antioxidant patent, which is now the gold standard for topical antioxidant formulations and licensed exclusively to SkinCeuticals.
With nearly 40 years of experience researching and developing technologies that help to prevent accelerated skin aging and skin cancer, Dr. Pinnell’s work established SkinCeuticals as a leader in scientifically validated skincare. SkinCeuticals is committed to cutting-edge skin science, and this is reinforced by strategic relationships within the scientific community. We have established a network of leading scientists from the fields of cellular and molecular biology, chemistry, and biophysics to further understand and research skin aging, skin types, and skin conditions. With this comprehensive knowledge of the skin and skin health, SkinCeuticals continues to raise the skincare bar and maintain its leadership position in the skincare industry.
