Welcome to the Vinyard Institute of Plastic Surgery's Blog, where your journey of aesthetic exploration and education takes center stage. We deeply value empowering our patients through knowledge, providing insights, tips, and in-depth information to guide and enhance your aesthetic journey. Dive into our posts, where expertise meets understanding, and discover a space where your curiosity and dreams are nurtured and illuminated.

The global COVID-19 pandemic, no doubt, has brought significant changes into our lives. From the workplace to our own homes, many of us had to rethink how to shop, dress, eat, or even organize our daily schedules. 

Many of us have noticed this mentality shift in our beauty routines as well – usual salon appointments were swapped for at-home substitutes, and skin care routines took the spot left open by makeup products. Although the vaccines have brought hope for returning to the pre-COVID-19 era, the new skin rejuvenation habits have taken hold and do not show signs of leaving any time soon. 

For that reason, here at the Vinyard Institute of Plastic Surgery, we believe that our patients deserve only the most effective skin care products available on the market. Skin care routines are not created equal, so we made sure that the chosen VIPS skin care line showed superior results in efficacy, versatility, and safety. Without further ado, we are introducing the top VIPS top pick for skin care and skin rejuvenation – the SkinMedica® routine! In this blog, we will discuss the importance of skin care routines and about achieving your skin rejuvenation goals with the SkinMedica® routine.

In-office Treatments are not enough

As patients, we are often led to believe that one or two in-office treatments every month are enough to satisfy our skin rejuvenation goals. Even though we cannot minimize the importance of these treatments, however, it is essential to know that they only deal with the anatomy of the skin without addressing several other skin issues, such as congestion, excess oil, or dehydration. In-office treatments, to put it into perspective, make up for 20% of your skin rejuvenation results.

So, what do we do with the remaining 80%? Enter skin care routines. Apart from addressing numerous skin issues, skin care products are the maintenance work that you have to put in daily to prolong the longevity of your treatment results. While in-office treatments require your attention only once or twice a month, the skin care routine will truly make a lasting difference in your skin.

When Should I Begin my SkinMedica® Routine?

In the world of skin rejuvenation, the rule of thumb is that we should only begin to worry about natural aging signs at an older age. However, is that the case in today’s society?

With the increased popularity of cosmetic surgery procedures and the dawn of the “Zoom face,” the younger generation is showing a growing interest in preventative skin care. They not only take more care of their skin, but also plan and spend resources on delaying the appearance of natural aging signs.

The beauty of the SkinMedica® routine lies in its versatility – both younger patients, who are starting to prevent early signs of aging, and older patients, who want to deal with wrinkles, fine lines, and other natural aging signs, can benefit from this skin care routine! This attribute of the SkinMedica® line puts it at the top of the anti-aging medical-grade market.

Tailoring the SkinMedica® Routine to your Needs

Each of us has different skin types and issues that we want to solve, so not knowing where to start with your skin care routine is normal. Finding the most suitable skin care regimen for you can be a tricky task, which is why we recommend that you ask a specialist for help to save yourself a lot of time and stress.

Our VIPS medical team is more than happy to welcome you for a complimentary conversation, during which we can discuss both your skin type and aesthetic goals and create the most suitable skin rejuvenation regimen for you.

Now that we know more about skin rejuvenation, let’s talk more about SkinMedica® products and how to create your skin care routine.

TNS® Advanced+ Serum

This superior SkinMedica® serum replenishes the number of growth factors in our dermis. These growth factors are signaling proteins that bind to cell surfaces and send commands to repair and rejuvenate dermal tissue. They are responsible for the production of new collagen and elastin and increased blood flow. 

After observing the essential role played by growth factors in skin rejuvenation, their research was prioritized, and the results followed suit. After just two weeks of use, the TNS® Advanced+ Serum shows stunning results, improving the appearance of coarse wrinkles, fine lines, skin tone, and texture.

Lytera® 2.0 Pigment Correcting Serum

Lytera® 2.0 was formulated to address stubborn symptoms of skin discoloration, with stunning results on all skin types and genetic makeup. With its non-hydroquinone, paraben-free, and fragrance-free composition, Lytera® 2.0 can be a wonderful supplement to skin rejuvenation treatments, such as chemical peels, laser therapy, or microdermabrasion.

You will start noticing improvements as early as two weeks into the regimen, with progressively superior results after week 12.

HA⁵® Rejuvenating Hydrator

HA⁵® provides the much-needed hydration for your skin, smoothing the natural aging signs. Furthermore, it improves the skin’s natural ability to retain moisture for a radiant, rejuvenated skin tone and texture.

Total Defense + Repair Broad Spectrum Sunscreen SPF 34

Many of the people who read this blog know how harmful the Florida sun and how important sunscreen protection can be. That is why the Total Defense + Repair Broad Spectrum Sunscreen SPF 34 plays a crucial part on this list.

This revolutionary superscreen does more than protect your skin from harmful UV rays. With its superior formula, the SkinMedica® sunscreen acts as a barrier against harmful infrared (IR-A) rays and UVA/UVB that reach our skin even on a cloudy day! Besides the defensive barrier, this sunscreen reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles while improving the appearance of sun-damaged skin.

Facial Cleanser

Appropriate for all skin types, the Facial Cleanser removes excess oil, makeup, and other external pollutants while hydrating and refreshing the skin.

Retinol Complex 1.0

With its rich Vitamin-A composition, Retinol Complex 1.0 plays an essential role in enhancing the tone, texture, and resiliency of your skin while diminishing the appearance of fine lines and coarse wrinkles.

Turning the SkinMedica® Products into a Routine

No skin care routine is akin to the next one. After assessing your skin type and aesthetic goals, the VIPS team will create a skin regimen that is most suitable for your needs. This skin care routine can be adapted over time to match your aesthetic goals.

Apart from pinpointing the right products for you, the next step is to apply them in the right order. From our observations and experience, we managed to create a standard morning and evening routine that shows stunning results and efficiency:

  •         Morning routine
    • Step 1: Facial Cleanser,
    • Step 2: TNS A+
    • Step 3: Lytera® 2.0
    • Step 4: HA⁵®
    • Step 5: SPF
