Explaining the SkinMedica GRASS Regimen

SkinMedica® has designed the GRASS Regimen to help take the guesswork out of choosing products for your skin care needs. Each letter (G, R, A, S and S) represents a product category. Combine products from these categories to create your personal regimen. It’s that simple.
These products contain a high concentration of TNS® – the SkinMedica® patented skin treatment, formulated from naturally occurring GROWTH FACTORS, antioxidants, cytokines, soluble collagen and matrix proteins. They help minimize the appearance of wrinkles and help improve skin texture and tone. SkinMedica’s TNS Essential Serum has over 110 different growth factors and 93.6% concentration growth factor solution (TNS, Tissue Nutrient Solution).
Exfoliate the skin’s dull top layers. Retinols are one of the key anti-aging ingredients for reducing any issues related to skin texture, as well as acne and acne scarring. SkinMedica® offers 3 strengths ofRetinol Complex – 0.25, 0.5, and 1.0. RETINOL helps enhance skin texture, and diminish the appearance of wrinkles and skin discolorations. Peptides, algae extract and vitamin E help to ensure skin is soft, hydrated and protected against free radical damage.
Our skin is exposed to damaging free radicals everyday. SkinMedica®’s ANTIOXIDANT products contain high levels of vitamins C and E. SkinMedica® Vitamin C+E Complex contains a concentrated formula of powerful vitamin C to rejuvenate and restore your skin while vitamin E corrects and prevents damage. It’s time released to transport the active ingredients to the skin gradually, creating a greater anti-aging effect. SkinMedica’s TNS Essential Serum® also contains 7 different antioxidants both lipid (to penetrate the skin’s barrier) and water-soluble antioxidants to protect your skin from many different aggressors.
SkinMedica® offers a number of products to address specific skin conditions or areas of concern. Specialty ingredients are necessary in treating skin conditions that occur with age or hormonal factors like sun-damaged skin, brown spots or melasma. SkinMedica® Lytera Skin Brightening Complex is an advanced lightning formula that is ideal for all skin types and does not contain hydroquinone. Another specialty ingredient necessary for anti-aging is Latisse®. Do you notice your lashes aren’t as youthful as they once were? It’s because our lashes age just like our skin does. Latisse® will make your lashes longer, thicker and darker in just 16 weeks of usage! Healthy lashes can bring a youthful appearance to your entire face.
Sunscreen containing zinc oxide is the only ingredient that blocks UVA rays, the sun’s more damaging rays responsible for skin cancer and aging. UVA rays make up over 95% of the sun’s rays. UVA is the key cause of aging so protecting your skin with a medical grade sunscreen with zinc oxide will greatly reduce the aging process. It’s never too late! If you already have damage from the sun, your skin can heal by starting to protect it now. We also have many very effective options for treating sun damaged skin including SkinMedica® Peels and Hydrating Facials. Sunscreens by SkinMedica® contain zinc oxide and are oil-free and ultra-sheer on the skin. They also feel great on the skin, as opposed to thicker over-the-counter sunscreens.
