A small selection of the quality skin care products available from Dr G Marks.

Serra Body Lotion

Serra Body Lotion with Ceramide P has been developed to optimally restore the skin barrier and improve the symptoms of dry, itchy, and uncomfortable skin. The same highly effective lipid bi-layer recovery system used in the Serra facial products has been incorporated into the body lotion. It’s enhanced by combining with essential fatty acids and urea, a widely used ingredient in the treatment of dry, sensitive and sensitised skin. The product is quickly absorbed without leaving a greasy finish and will rapidly soothe uncomfortable skin. The ingredients also deliver long lasting relief between applications. Serra Body Lotion is suitable for all skin types.

CLEANSING GEL

Serra Cleansing Gel is a soap and preservative-free creamy gel cleanser that thoroughly, yet gently, cleanses skin of all impurities and make-up. Anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial extracts protect and calm the skin during the cleansing process. This cleanser will not remove natural moisturising structures found in your skin and the product will restore the normal pH which is lost with extended periods of dryness.

SERRA RESTORE

This light cream contains patented lipid bi-layer recovery ingredients and is formulated for the treatment of dry skin. In dry skin the lipid bi-layer – a structure of natural oils between the dry skin cells in the top layer of your skin – is generally damaged. This layer is critical to maintaining the integrity and immunity of your skin and is responsible for trapping water in your skin and keeping foreign molecules out.

Using a product rich in vegetable oil might feel like it’s relieving the problem, but it won’t fix the damaged layer. Serra Restore contains ingredients that replace this damaged lipid bi-layer. Your skin will trap water more effectively, resolving increase water loss and dryness of your skin. More than that, it will prevent the penetration of foreign particles that might cause irritation, inflammation and even allergic reactions.

The product will correct the pH of the acid mantle ensuring healthy skin with good immune protection. It also has a calming and soothing effect on dry skin and will hydrate with added lipid and essential fatty acids that have been lost through the damaged lipid bi-layer.

D3 DAILY DERMAL ANTI-AGING SUPPLEMENT

Ovelle D3 is an oral supplement that contains two essential ingredients, Pygnogenol and activated Vitamin D, and when taken daily, it increases the skin’s resistance to UVA by 80%. More than that – it significantly improves the appearance of Melasma (hormonal pigmentation), and delays premature ageing of the skin.

PHOTO-REPAIR CREAM 50

Helase 50 is Lamelle’s sun protection product that has the unique ability to protect the skin from all the harmful effects of the full spectrum of sunlight. More than that, it prevents further damage and fixes the DNA damage caused by the sun and the free radicals produced with sun exposure.

Luminesce Brightening Cleanse

Luminesce Brightening Cleanse is a soap-free foaming cleanser that thoroughly yet gently cleanses the skin. It contains pigment-inhibiting peptides that are designed to become trapped inside the skin during cleansing, from where they initiate the inhibition process. The mallow and peppermint extracts in this cleanser soften and tone your skin, while yarrow and lemon balm extracts calm and soothe irritated skin.

Luminesce Brighter Defence 30

Brighter Defence 30 is a sunscreen specifically produced for skin with hyperpigmentation. Sunlight is known to further darken pigmented skin, which is why sunscreen is perhaps the most important skincare product to use when treating hyperpigmentation. Brighter Defence isn’t oily. It has a matte effect on the skin – but won’t give it a grey tinge. It has also been designed for daily use when you engage in activities that require your skin to be exposed to sunlight. Remember that even when you are not actively lying in the sun tanning, your skin is still exposed to vast amounts of sunlight – while driving in a car, watching or participating in a sport or lunching outside – and it will all damage your skin and worsen your pigmentation.

No ordinary sunscreen, Brighter Defence 30 contains a special form of vitamin C called MAP, which provides protection against free radicals while keeping the production of melanin (skin pigment) in check. Brighter Defence 30 also contains some pigment-inhibiting peptides.

Luminesce Brighter Day

The newly updated Luminesce Brighter Day provides even more pigment-inhibiting action. The new formulation delivers more ingredients to the cells (melanocytes) that are over-stimulated, to influence the overproduction of melanin without the risk of injury or damage.

Added powerful antioxidants (including glutathione reductase) better protect the cells and their nuclei, to prevent sun-induced pigment production and worsening. These active ingredients, combined with gene inhibition and ingredients that soothe skin irritation have been formulated into a medium-light cream that penetrates beautifully into the skin, making it ideal to use with your broad-spectrum Brighter Defence SPF 30.

Luminesce Evening Glow

Luminesce Evening Glow contains the same amount of pigment-inhibiting peptide as Brighter Day, but here it is combined with retinol (vitamin A) and other exfoliating ingredients in a slightly richer formulation. It’s designed to inhibit the production of excess pigmentation while also activating the natural exfoliation processes of cells that already contain melanin. In this way, a vast improvement is achieved in curbing hyperpigmentation.

Dermaheal Eye Regeneration Plus Cream

Dermaheal Eye Regeneration Plus Cream has been engineered to powerfully remodel and aggressively prevent further damage in the delicate eye area. This product is focussed on softening lines and wrinkles around the eye and is an excellent support product when combined with in-office treatments that are focussed on this area as it enhances the results of such treatments.

Dermaheal Eye Regeneration Plus Cream softens fine lines and wrinkles, decreasing puffiness and inflammation while rebuilding the skin’s lipid bilayer of the skin around the eye and on the lid of the eye.

Dermaheal Foaming Cleanser

This luxurious, soap-free foaming cleanser is pH-balanced and mild enough to use twice a day – cleansing and toning the skin with each use. The cleanser has been formulated using a moisturising complex that is designed to hydrate the skin as you cleanse.

Dermaheal Renewal Cream

Renewal Cream is much richer (in consistency and feel) than Cellular Repair Cream, and is designed for slightly more mature skin. Generally, the client that uses Renewal Cream will have been challenged with dry skin at some stage and her skin will need more moisture and hydration. This is also an excellent product to “upgrade” to during winter in geographic locations where the winters are dryer.

Dermaheal Ultra Renewal Cream

Dermaheal’s anti-ageing product, Ultra Renewal Cream is the platinum product in the Dermaheal anti-ageing product range. It is a combination of the finest Lamelle proprietary ingredients and has been designed to effect change in ageing skin.

Dermaheal Cellular Repair Cream

Cellular Repair Cream is the lightest (in consistency and feel) cream in the Dermaheal anti-ageing range and is designed for a younger, healthier skin where moisture levels are still naturally controlled. The product would be used in treating combination skin or skin that had been oilier at a younger age.
