Benefits/How It Works
Acquiring and maintaining healthy skin is an important goal, which is why Dr. Mark Lupin works so closely with his skincare patients in Victoria. At Cosmedica, a specific dermatologist-prescribed skin care program is tailored for each patient's particular needs. We offer distinct programs for skin conditions such as acne, eczema, melasma, rosacea and sun damage, as well as specific skin care products to help you achieve healthy, beautiful looking skin.
Cosmedica offers advanced skin care products backed by reputable science. At the core of our Victoria product menu is SkinCeuticals - a line dedicated to the fight against major contributors of skin aging and focused on three goals: prevention, protection and correction. SkinCeuticals' efforts to collaborate with the international medical community have provided them with a comprehensive knowledge of the skin and skin health. SkinCeuticals products are designed, formulated and tested for effectiveness and exclusively available through dermatologists, plastic sugeons and other skincare professionals.

Board-certified dermatologist Dr. Lupin understands the significance of patient safety and comfort. His practice is dedicated to providing high-quality cosmetic medical care for patients on Vancouver Island.
Proper care of the skin involves protection from excess sun and various elements, using creams to correct past damage and to stimulate the natural processes that lead to a healthier, more youthful appearance. Adjunctive skin care is critical to maintaining optimal treatment results.
Cosmedica recommends the ABC's of skin care for Victoria, BC patients. Vitamin A or a suitable alternative for more sensitive skin types will exfoliate, correct and stimulate collagen. This helps with fine lines, skin texture, pigment and laxity. The B is for Block - daily sunscreen. Dr. Lupin is Regional Director for the Canadian Dermatology Association and Spokesperson for Sun Awareness. As such, Cosmedica seeks out Canada's best sun protection options. We pride ourselves on offering a broad-spectrum (UVA/UVB) sunscreen with a minimum SPF of 30 for every skin type and personality. Daily UV protection is our leading defense against environment skin damage. Lastly, our C stands for Vitamin C - but not just any Vitamin C. L-Ascorbic Acid, the highest pharmaceutical-grade Vitamin C, is the only form proven to penetrate the dermis and defend against Infrared and free radicals. Vitamin C is also anti-inflammatory and brightening - helping to improve and maintain an even skin tone. To help Victoria patients with an optimal skin care program, Cosmedica offers simplified, custom kits designed exclusively for our centre by SkinCeuticals. The Fundamentals - ABC's - are packaged into simple programs for normal to dry, oily to problematic and sensitive skin types.
L-Ascorbic Acid Vitamin C serums have rejuvenating and anti-oxidant effects for our Victoria, BC skin care patients. Whereas traditional sunscreens need to be reapplied every 2 to 4 hours, Vitamin C serums confer protection for a full day – filling the gaps between sunscreen applications and maximizing total protection from solar radiation - UV and Infrared. At Cosmedica, we only recommend high-quality skin care products and help direct the right balance of these for each individual's skin type. We work with our patients to develop skin care plans that will deliver high-quality results.
Daily use of Clarisonic sonic skin cleansing brush - from the engineers of Sonicare toothbrush - will maximize the benefit of your skin care products.

Most skin care products are soothing to the skin. Medical grade Vitamin A (Retinol), salicylic acid and benzoyl peroxide may cause slight irritation or dryness. Pair such concentrated treatment ingredients with a complimentary moisturizer or hydrator suited to your unique skin type.
Most skin care products have no downtime and are intended to improve the skin. As individuals may react to any skin care product, allergic or irritant reactions are possible.
Most creams and serums take just seconds to apply.
Daily skin care is the norm.
