Our Brisbane Skin Care Products
As a medical clinic, our staff are always researching the latest safe, effective and scientifically based skin care products.
The most important active ingredients proven to treat skin ageing concerns include:
- Vitamin A – one of the most powerful weapons in the fight against skin ageing. Prescription Vitamin A is affordable and effective however it potency may cause irritation to some skin types. Thankfully other versions of non prescription Vitamin A are available for those unable to tolerate prescription Vitamin A. Vitamin A is also clinically proven to be useful for treatment for acne.
- Exfoliating Acids – includes various combinations and concentrations of alpha, beta hydroxy and lactic acids. Exfoliation promotes skin turnover and stimulate cellular renewal, resulting in fresher, younger looking skin.
- Vitamin C – Vitamin C helps to brighten the complexion while the anti oxidant properties of Vitamin C protects against damage by free radicals, hence it is best applied in the mornings.
- Products proven for treatment of pigmentation includes – hydroquinone (short term use), Niacinamide (Vitamin B3), Kojic Acids, Vitamin A products and glycolic and lactic acids.
New active ingredients:
Peptides – acting as chemical messengers, peptides communicate with cells to perform a specific function, informing cells how to function. eg. Collagen/Elastin building peptides, Palmitoxyl Oligopeptides in the production of hyaluronic acid in the skin; Palmitoyl Pentapeptide -4 in the synthesis of elastin and collagen.
