SkinMedica® creates professional skin care products. With over two decades worth of research and clinical experience, the company is able to deliver proven results. Dr. Caniglia carries a variety of SkinMedica products, including several that treat acne and other skin problems, as well as products to prevent visible aging and environmental damage.

TNS Eye Repair Cream

Many people are seeking an effective solution to the problem of fine lines and wrinkles around the eye area. This is a common area of concern, because the eyes are one of the most-viewed parts of the face. Besides fine lines and wrinkles, dark circles in the undereye area are also common, and may make you appear tired even when you’re full of energy.

The TNS Eye Repair Cream is one of the bestselling products in the SkinMedica line, and it’s easy to see why. This product hydrates the skin around the eyes, causing it to appear smoother. It contains a variety of natural substances that promote skin repair, including the specially formulated blend called TNS, which contains growth factors, antioxidants, cytokines, and matrix proteins. Vitamins C and E act as antioxidants to protect the skin from environmental damage. Several ingredients help to reduce the appearance of dark circles under the eyes, or act to diffuse light, so that dark circles become less visible. Retinol acts as an anti-aging agent, exfoliating the skin so that it’s renewed and looks more youthful.

This product is perfect for the eye area. If you want to access the benefits of TNS for the rest of your face, check out TNS Daily Moisturizer. For a more concentrated dose of TNS to be delivered right to your problem spots, try TNS Essential Serum.

TNS Essential Serum

As you age, there are many changes to the skin. The appearance of fine lines and wrinkles is a common concern. There are often other textural changes, such as rough patches or dry skin. Dark spots (“age spots”) may also appear. Those who seek to rejuvenate their appearance will want to address all of these factors.

This bestselling product offers an all-in-one skin rejuvenating treatment. By hydrating the skin, TNS Essential Serum reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. At the same time, it improves the texture of your skin, resulting in a more even skin tone and a smooth appearance. TNS Essential Serum contains a high concentration of TNS, a highly-researched blend of growth factors and other natural substances that promotes skin rejuvenation. This is combined with antioxidants, including botanicals like green tea extract and blackberry extract as well as other antioxidants like Coenzyme Q10, to protect your skin from the damaging factors in the environment, and a blend of peptides that promotes skin repair. We know that this serum works – 92% of users of this product reported that their skin looked healthier and more youthful.

To protect the skin from damage by sunlight, it’s important to use a daily sunscreen-containing product, such as Intellishade or Enviro-Shield. This will prevent further sun damage, so you can maintain the more youthful appearance created by TNS Essential Serum.

Retinol 0.5%

Retinol is one of the skin medications that’s most commonly prescribed by dermatologists. It’s actually a form of vitamin A. When applied to the skin, it regulates the behavior of skin cells in several ways. It can improve collagen production, resulting in firmer, smoother skin with fewer fine lines and wrinkles. It can also reduce inflammation and encourage the shedding of dead skin cells, resulting in fewer breakouts.

This is a powerful medication, and when it’s first used, it can sometimes cause irritation. That’s why it’s recommended that you begin using a lower concentration of retinol, and gradually increase it as needed. The 0.5% retinol formulation is a little gentler, while the 1% is a stronger choice for those who need a little more power to get their skin smooth and glowing. To soothe the skin, a moisturizer (such as Ceramide Treatment) can be helpful.

Retinol 1%

Retinol is the all-star skin treatment, with proven ability to treat breakouts as well as fine lines and wrinkles. (And with all of the hormonal changes a woman goes through in mid-life, it’s not uncommon for her to have both of those.) Using a product with retinol has been scientifically demonstrated to give you smooth, glowing skin, which is less prone to breakouts and shows fewer fine lines and wrinkles. It’s no wonder that this medication is among the most popular prescriptions by dermatologists.

While a lower concentration of retinol (0.5%) is recommended for those starting out and may be enough for some people, others need the more powerful strength of a 1% retinol cream. If you’re among those who need a higher concentration of this best-selling skin treatment, 1% retinol may be for you. Dr. Caniglia will advise you on whether you need retinol, and when to move up from the 0.5% to the 1% solution.

Retinol can sometimes cause irritation, especially in the early days of using it. A good moisturizer, such as Ceramide Treatment, can be helpful.


One common result of sun exposure over one’s lifetime is the appearance of dark spots, often called “sun spots.” Frequently appearing on the face, these spots can make you look much older than you are, and can be difficult to hide with makeup. Lytera is a face cream designed to even the skin tone and reduce the appearance of dark spots on the face and neck. It contains ingredients like vitamins C, B3, and A, along with a host of other ingredients that help to brighten skin and even skin tone. If you’re struggling with dark spots or other skin discoloration, Lytera could be the answer for you. Talk with Dr. Caniglia to learn more.

To prevent the appearance of dark spots, it helps to use a daily product that includes sunscreen, such as TNS Daily Moisturizer.

TNS Ultimate Daily Moisturizer

Many people need a moisturizer for their skin, and don’t like the feel of heavy or greasy creams. At the same time, if you want to age beautifully, it’s important to protect the skin from sun damage on a daily basis. Otherwise, damage from UV rays will add up over time, causing visible signs of aging such as wrinkles and age spots.

TNS Ultimate Daily Moisturizer has you covered. Along with a variety of antioxidants, growth factors, and other ingredients that support skin health and hydration, it also contains two sunscreens to protect against harmful UVA and UVB rays. Much of what we consider “normal aging” is actually damage from the sun, adding up over a lifetime, so protecting yourself from those UV rays will go a long way toward ensuring that your skin stays beautiful. TNS Ultimate Daily Moisturizer is formulated for normal or combination skin.

You’ll also need a great cleanser, to remove the environmental pollutants and other dirt that can damage your skin. The Facial Cleanser is a good choice; the Sensitive Cleanser is great for those with sensitive or dry skin.

Scar Recovery Gel

After any surgical procedure, most people want to minimize the appearance of scars. Particularly after cosmetic surgery, which is designed to enhance your appearance, you’ll want to ensure that your scars heal well and become virtually invisible. While Dr. Caniglia does his best to place surgical incisions in discreet locations where they won’t be obvious, optimizing scar healing is still important, whether you’ve had a facelift, eyelid lift, or any other surgery.

Scar Recovery Gel can help with that. This product contains Centelline, a blend of natural ingredients that help to diminish scars. Ideally, the product should be used as soon as the surgical wound closes, up until the scars become flat and white (not raised or red). We recommend this product to our patients having cosmetic surgery, and to any patients who have other surgical procedures (or even scars from injuries) that are still raised and red or pink.

Facial Cleanser

If you want to have beautiful skin, you need to remove excess oil, makeup, environmental pollutants, and other unwanted dirt. Many soaps can be drying for the facial skin, so the best choice is a specially formulated facial cleanser that will cleanse and refresh your skin, while also keeping it hydrated.

This Facial Cleanser is formulated for all skin types. The gentle cleansers will remove everything that can cloud your skin’s natural beauty and lead to breakouts and other damage. Vitamin B5 and extracts of Camellia Oleifera leaf will help retain your skin’s natural moisture. This cleanser is free of detergents, so it won’t completely strip your skin and dry it out. If your skin is particularly sensitive, or if you have recently had a procedure (such as a chemical peel or laser rejuvenation), we recommend the Sensitive Facial Cleanser.

Sensitive Cleanser

For those with sensitive skin, whether it’s naturally sensitive or you’re post-procedure, effective cleansing can be a challenge. You need a cleanser that can remove excess oil, makeup, and environmental impurities, without causing irritation or drying out your skin.

For our patients who have recently had a procedure (such as a chemical peel or laser rejuvenation) or who are naturally very sensitive, we recommend the Sensitive Skin Cleanser. It contains a variety of botanical extracts to soothe the skin, along with gentle detergent-free cleansing agents that remove harmful impurities without stripping your skin. There are no fragrances or other potential irritants. Your skin will feel refreshed and soft.

To soothe your dry or sensitive skin, choose a good moisturizer, such as Ceramide Treatment or Ultra Hyaluronic Intense Moisturizer.

AHA Cleanser

For those who want to rejuvenate their skin during their daily cleansing, the AHA/BHA Cleanser is a great choice. This is the newest SkinMedica cleanser, and contains alpha-hydroxy and beta-hydroxy acids (AHA and BHA). In higher concentrations, these ingredients are used in chemical peels to rejuvenate and refresh the skin. The lower concentrations in this cleanser will provide a daily stimulus to your skin to cause the turnover of new skin cells, so your skin stays more youthful and looks healthier. This minimizes visible aging, reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

Note that it’s important to combine this with a daily sunscreen, because those younger skin cells are more vulnerable to damage from the sun; the SkinMedica TNS Daily Moisturizer is a good choice.


Alpha-hydroxy acids (AHA) and beta-hydroxy acids (BHA) are natural substances used to exfoliate, or remove the outer layers of skin, to reveal a more youthful layer underneath. SkinMedica’s AHA/BHA Cream is an exfoliating cream is intended to be used after your cleanser and toner. This provides a gentle exfoliation on a daily basis, so you’ll be showing a more youthful face to the world – literally, as the removal of old, dead skin cells reveals the younger skin cells underneath. Smoother, tighter, brighter skin is the result. AHA/BHA Cream also contains antioxidants to protect your skin from environmental damage, to help you keep your skin looking its best.

Of course, you’ll need to be careful about sun protection, so you don’t damage those younger cells. The SkinMedica TNS Daily Moisturizer contains sunscreens as well as hydration, to keep your skin looking its best for years.

Rejuvenating Toner

A good toner is an essential part of any skin care routine. Toner helps to tighten the skin, leading to a smoother appearance. It removes traces of oil, makeup, and dirt that your cleanser might miss. Toner helps to rejuvenate the skin to keep it looking its best.

This Rejuvenating Toner contains AHA (alpha-hydroxy acids), which gently exfoliate to reveal more youthful skin underneath. AHA is widely used as an anti-aging treatment, and even young women find that it keeps their skin looking vibrant and glowing. Additionally, a blend of botanicals (including willow, green tea, and witch hazel) act as exfoliants and astringents, to rejuvenate the skin, and also as antioxidants, to protect the skin from damage by environmental factors. Daily use of this toner will help to keep your skin looking young and refreshed.

Your skincare routine should start with a good cleanser, such as the Facial Cleanser. The Sensitive Cleanser is great for those with dry or sensitive skin. You may want to follow your toner with a moisturizer, such as TNS Daily Moisturizer or Ultra Sheer Moisturizer.

Recovery Complex

Fine lines and wrinkles are among the most common signs of visible aging, and many people seek to minimize their appearance. Discolorations of the skin, such as dark spots, can be a result of sun damage accumulated over many years. If you’ve been noticing these signs on your skin, you’re looking for a solution that actually works.

TNS Recovery Complex has been clinically shown to improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and to reduce skin discoloration. The main ingredient in this product is TNS, also known as Human Fibroblast Conditioned Media, which has been developed based on many years of scientific research. This blend of growth factors, antioxidants, collagen, and other proteins promotes the growth of skin cells, resulting in skin that’s rejuvenated and looks more youthful. TNS Recovery Complex is over 90% TNS, making it one of your most powerful allies in the fight against aging and sun damage.

This powerful anti-aging ingredient is also available in other products, allowing you to take control of your aging process. For a smaller daily dose of TNS, check out TNS Daily Moisturizer. For intensive treatment of the eye area, try TNS Eye Repair Cream. To take care of the skin on your whole body – not just your face – consider TNS Body Lotion.

Ultra Sheer Moisturizer

If you have oil-prone skin, then moisturizing your skin is an extra challenge for you. You need a moisturizer that’s not greasy, won’t add extra oil to your skin, and won’t clog your pores. Many moisturizers feel too heavy for oily skin.

Ultra Sheer Moisturizer was developed specially for this skin type. This product contains hyaluronic acid, a substance naturally present in skin that holds in moisture. It also contains vitamins C and E, which act as free radical scavengers to protect your skin from environmental damage. If you have normal to oily skin, this moisturizer is perfect for you.

You’ll also need a good cleanser, such as the Lytic Cleanser (also developed for oily skin), and a toner, such as the Purifying Toner or the Pumpkin Wine Toner with Spin Trap, for a complete skincare routine.

GlyPro Daily Firming Lotion

To keep looking as youthful as you feel, you need to take care of your skin – all of it. Many people consider only the face, applying anti-aging products to that region while neglecting other parts of the body. However, it’s also important to care for the skin of the neck, chest, hands, arms, and legs, as these areas also experience damage from the environment and can start to show signs of aging, such as dark spots, wrinkles, and sagging, if not properly cared for. In some cases, the face may look younger than other parts of the body, meaning that those parts will give away the person’s true age.

To avoid this situation, you should care for the skin of your whole body. GlyPro Daily Firming Lotion is designed to keep all of your skin looking young. It contains an alpha-hydroxy acid, which increases the turnover of cells in the skin, so that skin is renewed and looks more youthful. This treatment also reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. In addition, this lotion contains caffeine, which helps to reduce the appearance of puffiness, as well as botanicals like olive leaf extract, which provides a range of antioxidants to help protect skin from damage from the environment. GlyPro Daily Firming Lotion will help keep your skin looking smooth, hydrated, and youthful.

Alpha-hydroxy acids are also a popular and potent anti-aging treatment for the face. Check out AHA Cleanser, which renews the skin as it gently cleanses away oil, makeup, and other dirt, and AHA/BHA Cream, which uses both alpha-hydroxy and beta-hydroxy acids to provide a strong anti-aging treatment, while also hydrating the skin to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. When you care for your face as well as your body, your skin will show it, and people will comment that you just never seem to age.

Ceramide Treatment

After procedures (such as laser rejuvenation or a chemical peel), skin can sometimes feel dry and irritated for a few days. There are also some people whose skin is naturally very dry, and gets irritated easily. TNS Ceramide Treatment Cream is designed to help restore the skin’s natural moisture barrier, so it can feel hydrated again.

This cream has everything your skin needs to be restored to beauty. Ceramides help to promote the skin’s moisture mantle, and restore its softness. There are natural ceramides within the skin; these small lipid molecules are part of the “glue” that holds the skin cells together, and replenishing them helps to maintain and restore the skin’s ability to protect itself and maintain hydration. This cream also contains TNS, a highly-researched blend of growth factors, collagen, and other proteins, which helps to maintain healthy skin. Two other peptides (small proteins) help to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. You had your procedure to fight aging, and TNS Ceramide Treatment Cream has everything you need to help your skin be at its most smooth and beautiful.

C & E

Free radicals are damaging substances that are created every day in the environment by sunlight, toxic pollutants, and other environmental chemicals. When they come into contact with your cells, they cause damage that leads to signs of visible aging. We can’t avoid these types of environmental stressors, but we do have a way to defend our skin against them.

Antioxidants are substances that absorb free radicals, protecting your skin from environmental damage. Two of the most important antioxidants are vitamins C and E. This Vitamin C+E Complex contains both vitamins, so your skin has a defense shield against the damaging factors in the environment. Don’t let free radicals steal your youthful beauty – defend your skin with vitamins C and E.

Uplift Eye Serum

Your eyes are the windows to your soul – and if they’re not looking their best, you’ll appear old, tired, or even angry. To keep yourself looking youthful and bright, you need to smooth the skin around your eyes and remove puffiness that can occur in this area.

Uplift Eye Serum is specially formulated for the eye area, and contains several natural botanical ingredients. Algae extract helps to hydrate the skin around the eyes, reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and also brings much-needed minerals and antioxidants to the skin cells to keep them in their best health. Green tea extract packs a huge dose of antioxidants to protect the skin around your eyes from the damaging effects of the environment. Extracts of licorice root and mushroom act to brighten skin and even skin tone, to help keep you looking young and wide-awake. Uplift Eye Serum is perfect for anyone who wants to look young and vibrant.

For problem spots on any part of your face, TNS Essential Serum delivers a concentrated dose of this anti-aging formula to help rejuvenate you. For keeping your face looking smooth and youthful, AHA/BHA Cream helps to exfoliate, showing the younger skin underneath.

Hydrator Complex

If you have dry skin, or if you’ve recently had a procedure (like a chemical peel or laser rejuvenation), a good moisturizer (such as SkinMedica’s TNS Daily Moisturizer or Ultra Sheer Moisturizer) might be enough to keep your skin hydrated. However, for some people, a little extra help is needed to restore the skin’s moisture level and keep it looking smooth and vibrant.

SkinMedica’s Hydrator Complex is designed to work synergistically with your moisturizer to keep your skin looking its best. It contains two different forms of hyaluronic acid, a substance naturally present in skin that holds up to 40 times its weight in water. Along with botanicals and vitamins to keep your skin nourished, and other compounds that help to hold water, Hydrator Complex helps keep your skin from becoming dry, dull and flaky. Keep your skin smooth, vibrant, and youthful.
