About SkinMedica

Dermatologist Dr. Richard Fitzpatrick found SkinMedica, a groundbreaking science-based skin care line. Dr. Fitzpatrick and his team wanted to ensure that patients and physicians had access to the highest grade of ingredients when using SkinMedica.

After years of clinical research, they were able to create quality skincare products that were shown to improve the health of your skin using growth factors and rejuvenators like, retinol, salicylic acid, tea tree oil, and vitamins E & C.

SkinMedica follows The GRASS Regimen, a philosophy built on the five essential components your skin needs to stay healthy and flourishing:

Growth factors for skin rejuvenation.

Retinols for skin renewal.

Antioxidants for free radical protection.

Specialty product to treat specific issues, like redness or inflammation.

Sun protection for UVA-UVB Defense.

With SkinMedica, you can achieve healthier, more youthful, and glowing skin!

SkinMedica Customer Review:

"What a terrific, effective product for scarred skin, aging skin, sagging skin, dehydrated skin, etc. I am 53, have been looking for decades for a product that will hide the scarring on my left cheek from young age acne without extreme measures. I wanted just one thing that would cover it up, and this product does it very well! It makes my skin look and feel radiant, fresh and beautiful." - SC
