Medik8 Skin Serums
It is well-recognised nowadays that everyone benefits from using vitamin C serum in the morning (to trigger collagen production and UV protection) and vitamin A serum in the evening (for repair and regeneration of the epidermal layer of skin). All Medik8 serums are formulated in refined Jojoba Oil base which prevents over-drying the skin, leaving it smooth and lightly hydrated.
The doctors at Laser Skin Care have been very impressed with the Medik8 range of active skin serums for these benefits.
The core products in this range are:
C-Tetra is an ultra-stable vitamin C serum which contains 3% Tetrahexyldecyl Ascorbate, which is a new lipid-based vitamin C derivative , 4 times more potent then the equivalent concentration of regular vitamin C (L-ascorbic acid). It also contains a natural form of vitamin E, an antioxidant. C-Tetra serum helps to combat sun damage, triggers collagen and elastin synthesis causing the skin to tighten with reduction in minor lines and wrinkles. It also actively fights against hyperpigmentation and alleviates inflammation. Medik8 C-Tetra is suitable for individuals in their mid-20s to mid-30s with all skin type
It is a stronger version of vitamin C serum which contains 7%
Tetrahexyldecyl Ascorbate, very potent, and recommended
for individuals in their 30s onwards with all skin types.
Retinol 3 TR
This light superfast absorbing vitamin A serum that rejuvenates skin at night
contains 0.3% retinol and tocopherol acetate (vitamin E) which significantly
enhances its stability. The retinol molecules are encapsulated which results
in time (controlled and gradual) release of active ingredients. This serum
helps stimulate collagen production and increased the levels of
hyaluronic acid in the epidermis. Retinol 3TR also stimulates new
cell growth , unblocks hair follicle pores and regulates sebaceous
gland activity. The result is improvement in skin sagginess, roughness
and reduction in fine lines and wrinkles. It is suitable for all skin types,
especially mature skin.
This is a lighter (0.1 % retinol) serum suitable for the under-eye area for individuals that have not used vitamin A serum before.
Red Alert Serum
This anti-redness serum provides intensive and calming relief from redness and flare-up caused by skin hypersensitivity, which is usually associated with rosacea. It contains Teprenone 3.0%, a patented anti-redness ingredient, and organic sage extract, a potent soothing and calming ingredient. It can be used after cleansing with Red Alert Cleanse. It is compatible with all other serums or skin products which can be layered on the top of Red Alert Serum.
