Anti Ageing Ingredients Explained
Posted on September 14, 2018

Skin Doctors use a number of key anti ageing ingredients within our cosmeceuticals, this is our difference. Clinically supported ingredients that help improve your skin. Let us explain some:

AHA – Over-the-counter skin care products containing alpha-hydroxy acids (glycolic, lactic, tartaric, and citric acids) have become increasingly popular in recent years. Creams and lotions with alpha-hydroxy acids may help with fine lines, irregular pigmentation and age spots, and may help shrink enlarged pores. Side effects of alpha-hydroxy acids include mild irritation and sun sensitivity. To avoid burning, sunscreen should be applied in the morning. Before you start any new skincare treatment we recommend resurfacing your skin with Skin Doctors gamma hydroxy.


Bee venom – natures answer for Botox® for its collagen boosting properties. It is a potent combination of enzymes, peptides and amino acids that works on all levels of the skin to encourage naturally occurring cell regeneration, boost collagen formation, accelerate the recovery of damaged skin cells and acts as a natural alternative to harsh antibiotic therapy for acne. Skin Doctors beetox will fool the skin into thinking it has been lightly stung with the compound melittin (peptide), therefore enhancing the stimulation of the production of collagen and elastin.

Retinol – is derived from vitamin A and is found in many over-the-counter “anti-aging” skin care products. A has a molecular structure that’s tiny enough to get into the lower layers of skin, where it finds collagen and elastin. Retinol is proven to improve mottled pigmentation, fine lines and wrinkles, skin texture, skin tone and colour, and your skin’s hydration levels. Skin Doctors potent vit A ampoules provides 0.15% pure clinical retinol to promote cell renewal in the skin by increasing collagen and elastin production.
