Universkin, the new functional dermatology
Universkin offers bespoke serums that specifically target the needs of the skin while balancing its natural defences.
In dermatology there are several major types of skin malfunctions, resulting in an imbalance of the skin's natural defences.
- Juvenile and adult acne
- Seborrheic dermatitis
- Coloured dark circles
- Post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation
- Loose skin
- Bags and the area around the eyes
- Photo damaged skin (sun ageing)
- Stretch marks
The appearance of the skin
- Enlarged pores
- Oily skin
- Dry skin
- Normal skin
Functional dermatology is an innovative approach that enhances the functioning of the skin beyond its appearance. It aims to help the skin to rebalance its natural defences in order to repair and prevent its disorders.
The medical cosmetology consultation
The doctor see you for thirty minutes so you can complete a questionnaire. He asks you about your cosmetic care routines, determines your phototype and does a thorough examination of your skin so you can get the serum that matches your needs.
Preparing the Universkin serum
Universkin is the result of many years of research to understand how to reprogramme the skin so that it reactivates itself correctly. Each serum contains between one and three active ingredients chosen from twenty pure active ingredients, which can create up to 2,850 different formulas.
The active ingredients are added to a serum base which contains :
Essential fatty acids
This is camelina oil, a fatty acid known for its high Omega-3 content.
Peptides are molecules that occur naturally in the skin. They send signals to the main skin cells (fibroblasts, keratinocytes). For example, when the collagen is damaged, they tell the skin cells to produce more collagen. A young person's body makes these peptides naturally and at the right time. It is now possible to "copy" these natural biological messengers. These copies are biomimetic peptides which replace the native molecules in the skin to preserve and regenerate it.
This is a molecule which occurs naturally in the body which stimulates cell activity and ensures good hydration of the skin. The body makes about 5 grams of it each day to renew skin tissues.
The active ingredients are mixed before your very eyes and you leave with your customised product, which will be different from the next, because your skin is changing. A Universkin serum lasts for six weeks.
