Topical skin solutions are only as good as their ability to address the precise needs of each user. SkinCeuticals Custom D.O.S.E. serums take customization to the next level by combining potent, active ingredients in exact amounts, in order to produce healthier, vibrant skin. The skincare experts at Cosmetic Laser Dermatology are excited to offer our patients the highest level of skin care available today, which includes the Custom D.O.S.E. 

What is Custom D.O.S.E.?

Custom D.O.S.E., or “Custom Diagnosis Optimization Serum Expertise”, is a service now available at CLDerm, facilitated by our experienced skin specialists. With the help of a patented algorithm, the compounding DOSE machine creates a unique formula of ingredients tailored to your specific skin care needs. When combined, the highly-concentrated active ingredients produce a potent serum designed to rejuvenate the skin, reduce pigmentation irregularities, and ward off early signs of aging.

 This system was designed — using a prototype of 250 different skin types — to ensure precision in the customization process, which is not the case for other personalized skin care lines today. 14 clinical studies were performed with more than 500 test subjects in total, showing an 18 percent average improvement in skin tone and texture with regular use.

Ingredient Options for Customized Skin Care

14 different ingredients make up the formulation in the Custom D.O.S.E. system: 

  •       AHA (alpha hydroxy acids, including glycolic, lactic and phytic acid)
  •       H + H (hepes and hydrovance)
  •       K + B3 (kojic acid and niacinamide)
  •       LI + M (licorice root and mulberry extract)
  •       SYM (SYMwhite)
  •       PXN (proxylane)
  •       RET (retinol)

In addition to the ingredients listed above, patients choose between two different bases for their serums. The first option is a hydroalcoholic base that is absorbed quickly by the skin and is recommended for individuals with oily skin. The second base has a milky texture and conditioning agents that tends to work well for dry skin types.


How it Works

Skinceuticals Custom Dose Production Process

Our team of skin specialists will walk you through the initial algorithm as you answer a list of questions regarding your specific skin type. The data is then entered into the Custom D.O.S.E. machine to formulate the precise combination of ingredients. The device adjusts the concentration of the ingredients to produce the ideal formula for your skin.

Once the serum is fully processed, you will receive a vial to use at home. Use the serum as it is prescribed, to ensure the best possible results. Most patients start to see noticeable improvements in their skin within four weeks of daily use. We will meet with you every three months to assess your skin and adjust your formulation, as needed, to maintain your positive results.
