The newly opened Project Skin MD in Vancouver includes the first SkinCeuticals Professional Centre in North America. An advanced skincare line, SkinCeuticals is designed to correct existing damage, protect healthy skin, and prevent future damage. The products are suitable for a variety of skin conditions and, due to their active formulations, are available only at accredited medical facilities and high-end spas.
A highly trained skincare advisor at Project Skin MD will work with you to develop a customized treatment plan after a careful analysis of your skin. But something they recommend to everyone is one of SkinCeuticals’ three Vitamin C–based serums, formulated to improve skin tone and protect against environmental damage. On top of other health benefits, Vitamin C also plays an essential role in the production of collagen, a protein which gives skin structure. Studies have shown, however, that only nine per cent of supplements taken orally are actually delivered to the skin. But, when applied topically in its pure and stabilized form, known as L-ascorbic acid, Vitamin C works like a charm, creating a reservoir in the skin which remains active for up to four days.
And on the topic of environmental damage, Project Skin MD will tell you also never neglect sunscreen. SkinCeuticals offers a suite of chemical-free sunscreens that provide true broad-spectrum UVA/UVB protection which can be used year round—even on a typical Vancouver day in the wintertime.
While your daily regimen at home is no replacement for the pampering you might receive while visiting the spa, it can be more beneficial than going for regular facials because the program is designed specifically to address your unique skin concerns, and using dermatologist-approved products, to boot. For the team at Project Skin MD, providing results while preserving your natural beauty is a priority.
