Even when products claim that they are formulated for all skin types, we all know, skin care is not one size fits all. Most of us have spent countless hours looking for the right combination and balance of products best for our skin. No matter how much you experiment and research, it can be challenging to know what products are really going to work for you. SkinCeuticals Custom D.O.S.E serum is the answer to all your skin care prayers! I recently experienced SkinCeuticals Custom D.O.S.E at Center For Facial and Body Rejuvenation and wanted to share my experience with the technology.
SkinCeuticals D.O.S.E is a customized serum made for an individual’s skin concerns, created at your dermatologist or provider’s office. No more guessing, no more wasting money on products that don’t work and no more searching for the exact cocktail of serums, oils, creams, peels, and scrubs! SkinCeuticals’ new Custom D.O.S.E Precision-Compounded Corrective Serum does all that for you, in about 10 minutes!
My Experience with SkinCeuticals Custom D.O.S.E
On the day of my treatment, we did a light/low setting microdermabrasion (physical exfoliation) to help remove dead skin and help with fine lines, age spots, and acne scarring. We then applied the Phyto Corrective Mask to help with redness, sensitivity, and hydration (a common go-to for any post-procedure sensitivity). We also added vitamin C (C E Ferulic) and SPF (Physical Fusion UV Defense), the two key components to any skincare routine!
We then made my Custom D.O.S.E serum – these are the ingredients selected for my skin concerns and their benefits:
Hepes and Hydrovance – Helps refine skin texture, replenish and maintain moisture levels
Licorice Root and Mulberry Extract – Helps promote even skin tone and minimize discoloration
Proxylane – Helps to support the skin’s matrix and improve skin firmness
The base of the D.O.S.E
Hydroalcoholic base – is oil-free with a fluid, viscous texture. Ideal for oily skin types.
Custom D.O.S.E FAQs
What is Custom D.O.S.E?
Custom D.O.S.E is a new approach to skin care that combines high-quality ingredients with professional expertise to create a personalized serum just for you! One of the most interesting things about D.O.S.E is that the compounder can combine ingredients that, in the past, have been considered “unmixable” outside of a factory. Another interesting aspect is that the machine operates at 1,200 rotations per minute to make sure the ingredients are combined perfectly.
How long does a Custom D.O.S.E consultation take?
Each D.O.S.E evaluation takes between 3-5 minutes, and the serum takes about 5 minutes to put together. It really is amazing how short of a time it takes to create your serum, and you won’t have to worry about a thing because YOU were a part of the process.
How long does a Custom D.O.S.E serum last?
If you apply twice daily, it typically lasts three months. Since it’s smart to reevaluate your skincare routine every few months or so, due to things like changing seasons and such, it actually works out to reevaluate your serum as well!
What are the benefits?
The obvious benefit of having a customized serum is that they’re created just for your skin’s needs, which can make targeting specific issues a whole lot easier and more effective. When developing Custom D.O.S.E, SkinCeuticals looked at over 250 skin types. There are 24 individual ingredients (formulated at different percentages) and over 2,000 possible combinations! No matter what skin conditions or problems you’ve had in the past, there is a combination in those 2,000 that is perfect for you!
