Always Start with a Skin Care Consultation
Store-bought products in general often don’t penetrate the skin; in other words, they don’t always fully absorb – because your skin doesn’t allow just anything to pass its protective barrier and the ingredients and molecule sizes of products may prevent absorption. That’s where Medik8 skincare jumps in.

Medik8 Skin Care Products
The Medik8 skincare range: Cosmeceutical “Medical-grade” Skin Care
Your Dermal Clinician can help you choose from a wide range of skincare product options
Treating the skin effectively to resolve a skin concern – such as ageing, redness or sun damage including hyper-pigmentation or melasma – requires extensive knowledge of anatomy & skin physiology. For best efficacy in relation to your skin problems, products and treatments require a thorough knowledge of the interaction between the skin’s layers, topical ingredients and active preparations, and any more intensive treatments you might be wanting to try (such as CO2 Laser DOT Therapy or Laser Genesis to fight the signs of ageing).
Our Team can help you choose the RIGHT products – and cosmeceutical brand – for your skin.
Our Dermal Clinicians and Injecting Team are University-educated about anatomy, physiology and skin health. Our Clinicians also regularly attend intensive training programs to learn about the latest advances in active skincare products and how serums, cleansers and moisturisers interact with the skin.
They believe the right combination of chemical peels, enzyme peels, laser treatments, low-level-light-treatments (LLLT) and at-home skincare regimes can get clients the most noticeable skincare rejuvenation results.
When you schedule a skincare assessment, you’ll get a customised skincare plan to help YOU get your skin to look its best. Plus, you’ll be able to get special professional-strength skin peels and other skin refining treatments that can help you get your skin looking its best.
The Medik8 Skin Care Line is available from the excellent team at Coco Ruby Skin & Anti-Ageing and Plastic Surgeons.
What’s important to know about cosmeceutical skincare or active skincare products:
- Store-bought, over-the-counter skincare products are designed for the mass market, meaning they have to be low-irritant/low active products to suit nearly any skin type.
- In other words, they won’t tend to help much but they won’t harm the skin either.
- Another reason store-bought products include less active ingredients is that they are offered at a lower price point than quality cosmeceutical products.
- Active products – such as available through the Medik8 skincare range – should be used ONLY with advice & usage instructions from a qualified skincare professional
Active ingredients that you want to look for in a good quality skincare product include:
- Antioxidants – including vitamin C, help to mop up free radicals caused by environmental damage
- Growth factors – a relatively new addition, growth factors help to repair and regenerate skin
- AHA/BHA (alpha-hydroxy acids/beta hydroxy acids) – help to exfoliate and renew the skin
- Zinc/titanium (sunscreen)
- Niacinamide (Vitamin B) – helps to improve skin immunity and cell metabolism
A Professional Skin Assessment is Important for Better Looking Facial Skin
What is Medik8 Skincare all about?
Medik8 is a high-quality, very active product line suitable for the most sensitive skin without compromising efficacy.
It is a myth that a product designed for sensitive skin would be less efficacious just because it is not irritating. Medik8 advances in active selection, delivery systems and mild base formulation mean you no longer need to compromise.
The challenge for Medik8 is to make effective ingredients less aggressive without reducing potency. This
is achieved by using:
- Chirally-correct actives
- Professional strength concentration
- Nanosome & liposome technologies (film encapsulation)
- Time release delivery system
- Enhanced penetration
- pH balanced formulae
- Enhanced stability
Medik8 ensures the “bio-availability” of their products, meaning their active ingredients reach the layer of the skin where they are meant to act.
The Medik8 Skin Care Range can help you address common skin concerns
The Medik8 skincare range covers most common skin complaints including:
- wrinkles and lines
- skin texture inconsistencies
- acne and oily skin
