Cosmeceuticals are active and effective ingredients, that are used to rejuvenate and beautify
the skin and are found in many anti-ageing creams.
They are a mix of a cosmetic - and a pharmaceutical and are therefore called 'cosmeceutical'
Amongst the most 'evidence based' and interesting cosmeceuticals are:
Vitamin A or retinol
Vitamin C or ascorbic acid
anti-oxidants, such as Resveratrol and Ferulic acid
depigmenting agents such as tranexamic acid and kojic acid
One of the limiting factors in the efficacy of active ingredients of cosmetic products is their
penetration in the skin, which is limited.
Using cosmeceutical delivery systems that enhance and facilitate the penetration of these
active ingredients into the deeper skin layers, allows us to maximise their efficacy.
Different Cosmeceutical delivery systems are used:
Thulium babyface laser, Ultrasound sonophoresis, mesotherapy injections and microneedling devices.
