NEOCUTIS Micro Essential Skin Care

Skin aging is the result of changes in various aspects of the building blocks found in the dermis, particularly in the dermal extracellular matrix. Over time, the amount of collagen in the skin lessens and looses strength causing a thinning of the skin. There is a loss of hyaluronic acid which results is skin that is less plump or voluminous. Finally, there is a loss of elastin, known to provide the skin with its elasticity, or ability to snap back.

NEOCUTIS MICRO•ESSENTIALS skin care line for anti-aging powered by MPC™ (Micro Protein Complex) is available only in physicians’ offices. The MPC™ line is unique because it uses a proprietary blend of synthetic peptides known as matrikines. Matrikines, and matrikine-like peptides, have improved penetration in the skin because they are smaller that growth factors. As a result, skin rejuvenation is greater with matrikine technology. The specific matrikines used in the MPC™ line have been shown to stimulate the formation of collagens I, III, and VII, as well as both elastin and hyaluronic acid leading to a powerful anti-aging product.

The NEOCUTIS MPC™ skin care products have been shown to minimize the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, improve skin texture, help to moisturize the skin, and support elasticity. While there are many skin care products out there, I chose to carry the one line I find addresses each of the changes in the skin that lead to aging while maintaining simplicity for a busy lifestyle. I personally have used NEOCUTIS skin care products exclusively for years with excellent results.

The NEOCUTIS MICRO•ESSENTIALS line includes the following core products:

MICRO•DAY™ Rejuvenating Cream, Broad-spectrum Sunscreen with SPF 30 delivers anti-aging benefits, antioxidant power and broad-spectrum sun protection.

MICRO•NIGHT™ Rejuvenating Cream restores moisture, smoothes skin and improves firmness while you sleep.

MICRO•EYES™ Rejuvenating Cream alleviates the signs of fatigue and helps make the delicate skin around the eyes resistant to the signs of aging.

MICRO•FIRM/NEO•FIRM: Intensive Treatment  formulated specifically for the neck and décolleté. This moisturizing complex helps firm and tighten skin, support the restoration of lost collagen and elastin, and diminish the appearance of age spots and uneven skin tone.

I also carry the hyaluronic acid serum which further hydrates the skin, adding a plumping and volumizing effect.


HYALIS: Intensive Hydrating Serum: An oil-free, deeply moisturizing formulation with multiple types of pure Sodium Hyaluronate plus key ingredients to help promote smooth, soft, and supple skin and minimize the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
