SkinMedica TNS, HA5, Lytera

Good at home skin care compliments everything we do at SDBotox. Botox paralyzes muscles, reversing the root source of the wrinkle, and dermal fillers fill larger wrinkles, but what about fine lines that can’t be addressed with injections? And what about your skins general health, texture, elasticity, and evenness? SkinMedica TNS, HA5, and Lytera are the answers to your problems.

Skin Medica is made by Allergan, the same company that makes Botox and Juvederm, so you know they understand wrinkles better than anyone. The Skin Medica team is made up of four full-time Ph. D’s that have been perfecting their formulas for over 20 years. There is more science behind a Skin Medica product than anything at Sephora or other skin care retailer and you can only get it at a Doctor’s office.

The entire line can be a little intimidating so we focus on three of our favorite products: TNS Essential Serum, HA5, and Lytera 2.0.

TNS Essential Serum

For those who are looking for that all-in-one solution that addresses a number of common problems, the TNS Essential Serum will deliver exactly what you're looking for. This is the number one selling product within the SkinMedica line and for good reason. This serum can be used with all skin types, and is meant for all ages. It works by enhancing the skin's tone and texture, fading and reducing the look of wrinkles and fine lines, and helps to create that healthy youthful look that so many people are after.

The serum glides on effortlessly and is meant to be used on the face, neck, and chest (wherever you feel you need the serum). It is meant to be applied in the morning and evening before you put anything else on such as a moisturizer or sunscreen. Just a small amount of product is needed.

As far as results go, you should begin to see a difference in your skin after about 30 days, but 90 days is when you'll get the full results. In a study of those who used the serum, 92% said they noticed their skin looked more youthful and healthy overall.

So what makes this product so effective and such a huge seller in the SkinMedica line? It features an "unprecedented" combination of growth factor ingredients that work to provide the maximum benefits to your skin. Ingredients such as vitamin E works to reverse free radical damage, Vitamin C as an antioxidant, alpha-arbutin to brighten the skin, hyaluronic helps to trap water within the skin providing hydration and plumping, and the camellia oleifera (green tea) leaf extract to give a second boost of antioxidants. This serum is absolutely loaded with top of the line ingredients that will offer incredible results.

HA5 Rejuvinator Hydrator

Dry skin is something that people of all ages can experience either on a regular basis or as a seasonal issue. It makes application of makeup difficult and can be itchy and irritating. The SkinMedica HA5 Rejuvenating Hydrator has been specially formulated with Vitamin E, Antioxidants, Peptides, and most importantly 5 types of Hyaluronic Acid to provide instant moisture to the skin that continues to hydrate for eight hours after application.

Once applied the hydrator works by plumping up the skin and giving it a boost of moisture. The plumping effect will fill in wrinkles and fine lines, which will create a more youthful appearance to the skin. The product also features humectants that are able to draw moisture from the air around you all day and deliver it to your skin. So not only are you applying moisture, your skin will also be drawing upon the moisture in the air.

This serum works excellent on rough and dry patches repairing them almost instantly and working to balance the moisture levels in your skin. It is also fragrance and paraben-free. It can be used anywhere on your face, neck and chest. It is best to use this product in the morning and evening right after you cleanse and tone your skin. This can be applied before your moisturizer and sunscreen. You may even find it offers enough hydration that moisturizer isn’t necessary. This product is meant for oily skin, dry skin, combination skin, normal skin, and mature skin.

Lytera 2.0

Are you experiencing severe discoloration of your skin and you haven't yet been able to find a product that addresses this issue? It's time to give the SkinMedica Lytera 2.0 Pigment Correcting Serum a chance. This powerful concoction works to even out skin tones, no matter how stubborn and noticeable the discoloration may be. Hyperpigmentation is an issue than can affect people of all ages, and can be difficult to address.

It's the ingredients in this product that make it so effective. Ingredients such as phenyl ethyl resorcinol, tranexamic acid, marine extract blend, niacinamide and tetrapeptide-30, plus phytic acid work synergistically together.

You will begin to see a different in as little as two weeks and after 12 weeks of continued use, the results will be nothing short of dramatic. A clinical study of the product showed that 100% of subjects said it made their skin tone look more even, 95% saw a lightening of dark spots and splotches, and 100% said it mixed well with the other products they use in their skincare routine.

If you have recently had laser therapy, a chemical peel, microdermabrasion, or use prescription skin care products, Lytera 2.0 will help to better the results of those treatments.

This product is fragrance-free, paraben-free, retinol-free, doesn't contain hydroquinone, and is non-comedogenic. Lytera 2.0 can be used on the face, neck, and chest area. It is meant to be used in the morning and evening.

It is recommended that you use daily SPF of 20 or higher when using Lytera 2.0 for best results. All skin types can use this product include mature skin, acne-prone skin, sensitive skin, oily skin, combination skin, dry skin, and normal skin.
