Build a Better Regimen with GRASS

New from SkinMedica®, the GRASS Regimen combines proven skin care ingredients—growth factors, retinol, antioxidants, specialty products and sun protection—to take the guesswork out of compiling an effective skin care routine.

Products in the GRASS Regimen work in tandem to improve the health and appearance of the skin. In fact, in a clinical study, physician assessments showed that 100 percent of patients using the GRASS Regimen had smoother skin and a reduction in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, while 97 percent experienced improvement in the appearance of facial dark spots after 24 weeks*.

SkinMedica® proprietary TNS® ingredient is a concentrated blend of naturally occurring growth factors, cytokines and matrix proteins.

Clinical studies show that TNS Recovery Complex® and TNS Essential Serum® are proven to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles while improving skin texture and tone.

Retinol hasn’t budged from its spot atop dermatologists’ must-have lists, thanks to its proven ability to improve the visible signs of aging. Retinol, a derivative of vitamin A, improves the appearance of skin.

Retinol enhances skin turnover and helps remove dead, dull skin that dwell on the skin’s surface.

Available in three strengths, SkinMedica® new Retinol Complex features a targeted delivery system that helps to minimize irritation common with retinol use. Its main ingredient is delivered via a proprietary encapsulate, Phytoshield™ Complex, to optimize delivery to the skin.

Antioxidants’ primary role is that of defender: They defend the skin against free radical damage caused by environmental factors such as smoke, pollution and UV radiation

The GRASS Regimen offers two antioxidant options: Vitamin C+E Complex, which contains two forms of powerful antioxidants that are gradually released, and Dermal Repair Cream, a moisture-rich formula that also contains high levels of antioxidant vitamins C and E.

Depending on your skin type and condition, you may have specific concerns, including acne, uneven skin tone or visible redness. That’s where specialty products come in.

Your physician or skin care specialist can create a customized routine with SkinMedica® specialty products, including Lytera® Skin Brightening Complex for reducing the appearance of dark spots, Scar Recovery Gel with Centelline® to reduce the appearance of scars, Acne System for acne treatment, or Redness Relief CalmPlex™ to minimize visible redness.


Its need is undisputed: Diligent use of broad-spectrum SPF not only fights sun damage, the primary cause of skin aging; it also protects against skin cancer, the most common form of cancer in the United States.

SkinMedica® makes choosing the perfect sunscreen easy, with three elegant formulations suited for all skin types: Daily Physical Defense® Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 30+, Environmental Defense Sunscreen™ SPF 50+ with UV ProPlex™, and TNS Ultimate Daily Moisturizer™ SPF 20 Sunscreen.
