We had our own SkinCeuticals serum created at the launch event of CUSTOM D.O.S.E.
Only a few years ago, it was common for most skin clinics to stock one skincare brand with a handful of products, usually a cleanser, moisturiser, and a few serums with different actives – a range that was then chosen from to prescribe a patient an effective at-home skincare regime. If a client was concerned about fine lines and sun damage and dehydration, it often meant four or five products were necessary to address all of the above.
Fast forward to 2019, and SkinCeuticals changed people’s skincare regime by launching a bespoke serum system, CUSTOM D.O.S.E. Now, the futuristic compounding system has finally arrived in Australia, ready to impress skin experts by creating highly personalised serums as individual as their clients’ skin.
CUSTOM D.O.S.E is a personalised skincare service that combines high potency ingredients with professional expertise and state-of-the-art technology, to create a custom, anti-ageing corrective serum – developed, measured, and dispensed in approximately 10 minutes.
Last week, SkinCeuticals revealed the new product to media in Sydney and Melbourne. The CUSTOM D.O.S.E launch in Sydney revealed a special collaboration with acclaimed Artist VICKI LEE with the bespoke packaging for the serum showcasing one of Vicki’s most sought-after masterpieces from her most recent exhibition, titled ‘OMMA’.
I was lucky to experience a bespoke CUSTOM D.O.S.E prescription by Dr Joseph Hkeik (who offers the service at his new skin clinic Le Petit Saint) starting with a Skinscope skin analysis. We then went through a questionnaire about my skin, my preferences for ingredients, textures and formulas, and my main concerns to arrive at the perfect blend for my skin – with hundreds of different possible combinations, this one is as unique and targeted as it gets.
Dr Hkeik entered everything into an iPad, which then sent the information to the compounding machine, a big black box looking sleek and elegant and not unlike an expensive coffee machine. The transparent walls let me see exactly what is happening inside as about five different liquids are dispensed into the small brown bottle, which is then moved into a centrifuge to blend everything together. Lastly, the label including my name gets printed and stuck onto my little bottle of highly potent skin enhancers before I get to take it home.
The CUSTOM D.O.S.E service will only be available at select partnering SkinCeuticals clinics and has practitioners excited about the possibilities.
“I have always envisaged aesthetic surgery as a highly individualised, one-on-one experience. The SkinCeuticals CUSTOM D.O.S.E service will now extend this personalised journey into advanced skincare, to provide a truly bespoke product and corrective skincare plan for our valued clients. We are proud to partner with a brand that is shaping the future of our industry,” says Dr Frank Lin from Eastern Plastic Surgery in Victoria.
If there is one skincare trend in 2021, it seems, it is customisation. What was limited to ‘gimmicky’ offerings in the past, such as having your initials engraved on packaging or choosing a scent for your moisturiser, is now taken to the next level by SkinCeuticals. We can’t wait to see what else is possible on the journey to truly personalised skin care.
