The Medical Grade Skincare Lines We Use and WHY

We carefully select each skincare line we carry. Each one has it’s own unique ingredients and mechanism of action. In this post we will breakdown each of one of our medical grade skincare lines, why we carry them and what skin conditions they are best for.

Restorse Pro

We love the  story behind  this skincare line. The founder was in Norway at a salmon fish hatchery (long story), and discovered that the salmon egg has a unique enzyme in it that dissolves cells to allow the baby salmon to squirm its way out of the egg when ready. She put this ingredient into all of her products. It’s called Aquabeautine XL, and it gives similar results as retinol but without any drying or irritating side effects. It’s also extremely anti-inflammatory so we carry it for those clients that are highly sensitive or have skin conditions such as rosacea, peri oral dermatitis, etc. and cannot tolerate a retinol. Aquabeautine XL dissolves only the DEAD skin cells at the surface of the skin so the client still gets the cellular turnover that is needed for beatiful, healthy skin.

This skincare line is fascinating and unique along with being highly effective. Go to their website to learn more or chat with us at your next visit.

Meg 21

During intensive medical research at a world-renowned medical center in Philadelphia, a treatment to reduce the signs of aging was discovered when the scientists uncovered an enzyme called F3K, which furthers the production of toxic sugars in the skin. That process causes serious inflammation and glycation, two distinct events that contribute to skin aging. But glycation and inflammationare not limited to disease — they happen in everyone’s body and skin and are exacerbated by toxic sugars from our diets and normal metabolism. Meg 21’s scientists discovered a compound called Supplemine that intervenes in the production and availability of toxic sugars – a leading cause of inflammation, skin aging and wrinkling – in skin. Supplamine prevents skin damage in two distinct ways: by preventing the development of toxic sugars and neutralizing the toxic sugars in our systems.

All of the products in this line are ultra hydrating, soothing, brightening and contain the anti-glycation ingredient Supplemine. We carry this line not only for it’s amazing anti-aging abilities but it is the most deeply hydrating product line we could find for our dry, severely harsh environment in Colorado.


If you are a client here or at Accent Dermatology, you are most likely using 1 or 10 of these products. To say we are a little obsessed with this line and their Chief Scientific Officer, Tatiana Kononov, would be an understatement. They are truly leaders in this industry and the first to develope so many groundbreaking technologies and innovations.

They were the first to widely incorporate peptides. The first to utilize THD ascorbate, the most superior form of Vitamin C, in a 30% concentration. The first to create an at home neck cream. The first to use Bakuchiol to increase retinol’s efficacy. The list goes on and on.

Anywhoo…don’t get me started! The proof is in the RESULTS with this one and if you’ve used it, you know how good it is!


As always, if you have any questions or would like to get started on a medical-grade at-home skincare regimen, please book a consultation, we LOVE to talk about this stuff!

Platelet Rich Fibrin aka PRF: The “Natural Filler” We’re Obsessed With!

By now we’ve all heard about PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) and its regenerative abilities. While it is still widely used in several different branches of medicine, there’s a new generation of stem cell therapy, PRF (Platelet Rich Fibrin), and we’re using it in advanced aesthetics!

Your blood contains four main ingredients: red and white blood cells, platelets, and plasma. The platelets are largely responsible for clotting your blood and initiating the healing process any time you’re injured. Fueling the healing response are the growth factors and other proteins found in your platelets, which are released at the site of the damage in order to aid in healing, help with repairs, and reduce inflammation, all at a cellular level.

Platelet Rich Fibrin (PRF) vs Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP)

PRP is spun down at a very high speed, seperating all of the cells from the plasma, or liquid portion, of the blood. This plasma does contain your own growth factors and some platelets, but due to the diluted concentration it dissipates quickly in the area being treated. It has come to be called “fools gold” in our industry because of its unpredictable or unsatisfying efficacy. PRP also contains additives or anticoagulants, such as heparin. This allows for the plasm portion to be used for a much longer time after being spun down so there’s less urgency to get it into the area being treated. Unfortunately, this anticoagulant doesn’t allow the platelets to stimulate the healing process to their full ability.

PRF is spun down at a much slower speed so the cells aren’t completely seperated. While this results in less volume of injectable liquid, the portion used is much more concentrated and rich in platelets and growth factors. PRF keeps the platelets enveloped in a fibrin meshwork which helps build a thicker, slower absorbing layer in the area being treated. When injected this creates a lovely “scaffolding” effect to the skin. Hence the “natural filler” term.

So now you might be thinking “what the heck is fibrin?”  Fibrin, in basic terms, is what platelets bind to as they circulate throughout your blood. When platelets bind to fibrin they release growth factors which help to start the healing process by creating new collagen, blood vessels, and skin cells in the process.

Also, PRF contains no anticoagulants or additives, making it a completely pure product, which is why we call it a “natural filler”.

The PRF product is spun at a lower speed so that the layers of the blood do not separate out as distinctly. This allows some of the white blood cells and stem cells to remain within the platelet layer that is collected for treatment. Thus, there are more healing factors within PRF than is typically seen in PRP. In addition, the lower spin speed causes less trauma to the individual cells of the blood, allowing more stem cells to remain in the final PRF product.
