Select from the most current Medical Grade Skin Care Products in Havertown and South Philadelphia for skin care maintenance and enhancement. Who better to advise you on your skin’s needs than skin care experts?

Medical skincare products in Havertown and South Philadelphia


At Mind Your Skin, we handpick the highest-grade skin care product lines and home run products for you, so you don’t have to. Medical grade means more and better active ingredients, and fewer inactive ones, including ‘filling’ agents and preservatives. The dispensing system is key for certain items such as vitamin C which is unstable and degrades when exposed to air. Furthermore, the delivery system (‘vehicle’) is the secret sauce in the world of cosmoceuticals. Often the active ingredient has to be cloaked, folded or otherwise altered and/or disguised or aided in order to get it past our skin barrier before successful deployment. This is where science really takes over and where “Medical Grade” sets itself apart from many over-the counter treatments. To begin with you should treat your skin to ongoing exfoliation and sun protection. Moisturize as needed. Additionally, none of these need be expensive! Stepping it up a notch: We have available antioxidants and various treatments directed at specific concerns. Our estheticians get you started and move you along a personalized skin-care regimen. Think of us for example as your personal skin care trainers! Below are our “go-to”, top performing skincare products. These are available for on-line purchase as well via our web store.

So let us review our favorite ‘lines’ and why we incorporate them into our practice.


Because people consider the over 270 years of expertise of this French brand in caring for sensitive skin, millions worldwide trust their skin with Avène. They are rooted in dermatology, burn care and hydrotherapy. At the heart of the brand is their Thermal Spring Water. It is naturally  sourced and  more than 150 clinical studies show it to soothe, soften and generally calm the skin.

Avène Mineral High Protection Tinted Compact

Avène Mineral High-Protection Tinted Compact (beige) is a 100% mineral based sunblock in a light, cream-to-powder formula. It is enriched with a powerful photo-stable antioxidant. This is Pre-Tocopheryl, a photostable form of Vitamin E. Titanium Dioxide (13.7%) and Zinc Oxide (4.9%) provide broad spectrum UVA/UVB SPF 50.  The mineral formulation is non-irritating, so it is safe for children and for those  intolerant and sensitive skin types. Avène Mineral High-Protection Tinted Compact is  Octinoxate and Oxybenzone free, and therefore is also a coral reef-friendly sunblock. (see our blog article for more background and the difference between sun-screen and sun-block).

  • Compact + mirror for easy application

Avène RetrinAL 0.1 Intensive Cream

Powerful antioxidant protection against damaging free radicals in our environment is derived from retinaldehyde, pro-elastin peptides, and pre-tocopheryl. The Avène Thermal Spring Water component soothes, softens and calms the skin. Clinical studies show the reduction of visible signs of aging alongside brighter and rejuvenated skin. In this case studies show AVÈNE RetrinAL 0.1 plumps the skin and restores radiance for a more youthful appearance. This is due to enrichment with a powerful anti-oxidant, coupled to a synergy of patented ingredients. AVÈNE RetrinAL  0.1 Intensive Cream wins the 2016 NewBeauty Beauty Choice Award! Finally, all Avène Products are Hypoallergenic, Fragrance-Free, Paraben-Free, Soap-Free, Soy-Free, Gluten-Free


  • Powerful anti-oxidant protects the skin from free radicals
  • 58% reduction of deep lines and wrinkles
  • Refines skin texture by +54%
  • Fuller, firmer and toned skin appearance
  • Improves skin tone/complexion looks more radiant by +38%
  • Lack of radiance
  • Uneven skin tone


  • Retinaldehyde is more effective than OTC Retinol, but much milder in comparison to for example Retin-A. It smoothes away the appearance of wrinkles and brightens the skin
  • Patented Relastide®, a pro-elastin peptide, helps the skin look plumper, firmer and more radiant
  • Patented Pre-Tocopheryl, a photostable form of Vitamin E, provides powerful anti-oxidant protection against free radicals
  • Finally, Avène Thermal Spring Water soothes, softens and calms the skin

PLUS CREAM Avène’s Hydro-therapy Center RetrinAL has been clinically proven to significantly reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles without the irritation seen with typical products. Hence it is often a go-to in our practice for sensitive skin as well as patients who cannot tolerate Retin-A.

Avène RetrinAL 0.1 Intensive Cream

In brief: As a result of its GREAT ANTI-AGING performance Avène RetrinAL  0.1 Intensive Cream makes it to our top products list! This product is available for on-line purchase via our web store.

Mind Your Skin, in COVID times

We sent over 130 TLC skin care packages to health care workers at the front lines of the healthcare crisis. We received the support of Pierre Fabre  Avène\Glytone in the form of a generous donation of products. Avène has nearly three centuries of expertise in caring for sensitive skin. Back in 1871 Avène sent their healing and soothing thermal spring water from the source in the Cévennes mountains to the aid of the victims of the ‘Great Chicago fire’.

In addition to sun-protection, ISDIN has been innovating in skin-rejuvenation and renewal, eye-care, hair-care. As is popular in Europe, they present several of their products in handy glass ampoules. This ensures a fresh product is applied each time!

Biopelle Tensage Advanced Cream

Keen scientists observe that certain snails have an astounding capability to heal their integument (‘skin’). In addition we know that with age our skin loses the benefit  from the repair properties of our natural growth factors. As is the case for many other important components, our skin is just not keeping up. Biopelle Tensage Advanced Cream helps supplement this decreased level as growth factors are applied to the skin. European scientists discovered and patented SCA Bio-repair Technology. Tensage® Growth Factor features SCA-6 Bio-repair Technology, a special secretion concentrated from the Cryptomphalus aspersa snail. Besides growth factors glyco-proteins and antioxidants help repair, maintain and protect skin from the visible signs of photo-damage. These snail secretions improve fine lines and hydrate, producing softer skin.

  • Extra emmolliance helps provide additional hydration for mature skin types
  • Helps skin appear smoother and brighter
  • Helps address advanced signs of aging

(The snails at the farm in Spain escape any harm in this process)

Alastin Skin Nectar features Skincare TriHex. This technology’s approach entails treating aging skin with selected peptides and botanicals that target the extracellular matrix. The Skin Nectar helps to enzymatically clear damaged proteins stuck in the extracellular matrix (between the cells). The product also stimulates and supports the skin’s natural ability to produce elastin and collagen. In addition, antioxidants and Arnica Montana help to calm and reduce redness. In summary, we love the Skin Nectar pre- and post our deeper laser treatments because it boosts results while reducing downtime.

HA5 Smooth and Plump Lip System

The SkinMedica HA5 lip plumper is a system that  features ingredients similar to hyaluronic acid.  Lips incorporate it in addition to the blend of proteins that it contains thereby enhancing fullness and volume. These anti-aging ingredients protect, smooth and plump your lips. This clinically tested, two-step lip treatment decreases an aging appearance, such as the look of fine lines, improves contour, and enhances the fullness of lips.  It’s generally used alone or as the complement to lip filler because it prolongs how long that will last. SKINMEDICA HA5 LIP PLUMPER Because it is a strong performer the SkinMedica HA5 lip plumper system makes it to this top products list! This product is available for on-line purchase via our web store. Incidentally, as a member of the Allergan family, a lip plumper or other SkinMedica purchase counts towards your Brilliant Distinctions Points Rewards


Latisse® 5ml lusher lashes is the first and only FDA-approved treatment prescription for lusher eyelashes. Latisse grows eyelashes for people who have inadequate or not enough lashes. As we age, our eyelashes generally become thinner, lighter, and shorter. A once daily prescription treatment applied to base of the upper lashes will grow eyelashes longer, fuller, and darker. In 10 to 12 weeks, you will notice remarkable results! Compared to other products out there we have just NEVER seen it NOT work! Finally, Latisse® has a very long established safety record as it was used for certain eye-conditions for many years. (Latisse® qualifies for rewards at Brilliant Distinctions by Allergan, the maker of Botox® and Juvederm®) Follow this link to the world of Lusher Lashes
