Only medical-grade skin care products carry the best ingredients in the highest concentrations, and at VIDA we have a range of lines available for all skin types and goals. While it’s important to have a good at-home regimen composed of products that have been hand-selected just for you, you must also keep in mind that our skin is always changing. It’s the biggest organ we have and needs year-round TLC. During the winter months, skin is especially prone to dryness, redness (including rosacea), and breakouts. If you can’t recall the last time you reassessed and updated your skin care routine, now is the time.
SkinMedica is one of the most popular of medical-grade lines, with the HA5 Rejuvenating Hydrator as the line’s star. This topical has five different hydrators, each uniquely moisturizing the skin while using hyaluronic acid (HA) as a plumper. A synthetic form of HA is the most common ingredient in dermal fillers, but when used as a topical it also works its magic to turn back the clock by erasing lines and wrinkles. HA5 offers eight straight hours of hydration. Plus, the humectants in the topical draw moisture from the air to your skin for non-stop dewiness.
Skin Care Picks
PCA Skin has been a leading medical-grade line for over 30 years, when it was created by an esthetician and dermatologist. At the core of this line is education, innovation, and incredible customer service. If the name sounds familiar, it may be because they are the makers of the Jessner Peel (and a myriad of additional products). Not only do we offer PCA products as part of our in-office treatments at VIDA, but we also offer a wide line of PCA moisturizers, sunscreens, cleansers, antioxidants, and more. Combining PCA in-office treatments with at-home care is a great way to maximize skin health.
Colorescience is one of the latest additions to our skin care store. These medical-grade sunscreens are renowned around the world not only for their protection but their flawless appearance with a brush-on application. A variety of shades are available so you can find the right sunscreen for your tone. It’s a combination of sunscreen and traditional makeup in one simple product. Most people who try Colorescience find that they no longer need or want to wear foundation at all. It acts as both UV protection and a means of evening out skin tone and covering up imperfections.
Mixing and Matching Products
Epionce was designed by a dermatologist and is known for having state-of-the-art products with over two decades of science-backed research.

These products are all backed by science and you’ll find every item you need in this line, including anti-aging serums, brighteners, sunscreens, cleansers, and much more.
Creating a Skin Care Routine
With so many lines and scores of products, it can be difficult and overwhelming to put together a regimen that works for you. That’s why it’s always a good idea to book a consultation with one of our experts. In a no-pressure environment, we will help you strategize a treatment plan that works with your goals, your schedule, and your budget. Combining at-home treatments with in-office treatments is the key to taking your skin goals to the next level, and there are even ways to test out some products before you buy them (such as during a DiamondGlow treatment).
