Carlsbad, CA - September 7,  2011 - SkinMedica, the fastest growing professional skin care company in the United States,  has revolutionized the anti-aging category with the introduction of Biometa Essential Serum™ - the first product from SkinMedica to be launched exclusively in select international markets. 

Biometa Essential Serum™ is an all inclusive skin care treatment that significantly addresses the visible signs of aging.  This new product is the result of years of innovative scientific research that targets the natural aging pathways of the skin.  Biometa Essential Serum™ unlocks the rejuvenation process, resulting in long lasting natural beauty.

  • 88%: improved the appearance of wrinkles
  • 97%: product is convenient to use
  • 97%: improved skin smoothness
  • 91%: product led to tighter, firmer skin
