How do I know which one is best for me?
The different skin care lines are meant to be interchangeable depending on your specific skin care needs. They are all safe to mix and match, but of course it is always wise to test a small, unnoticeable area first before applying anything to the entire face.
What are the steps required in proper skin care?
1.          Cleanse – twice daily (AM &PM)
Cleansing removes dirt, oil, makeup and pollutants from the skin without stripping the skin of moisture. Cleansers also gently exfoliated dead skin cells to reveal younger skin below. 

2.          Tone - twice daily (AM &PM)
Toning restores the skin’s natural pH Balance and removes any residue from the cleanser. It also preps the skin to absorb treatments and moisturizers. 

3.          Treat - twice daily (AM &PM)
Treatments include serums and spot treatments to target specific needs of the skin. These items give your anti-aging regimen a boost as they work deep within the skin layers to reverse the signs of aging and other skin care needs.
4.          Moisturize twice daily (AM &PM) and as needed 
Moisturizers soften, protect, brighten and hydrate the skin. 

5.          Masque – two to four times per week 
Masques are specialty treatments that repair and renew the skin bringing more luminosity and radiance to your look. 

What should I use if I am looking for a basic skin care line?
Skintelligence is a simple to use, yet extremely effective line that is great for any skin type. Formulated with botanicals to be gentle and mild, Skintelligence has advanced science behind the finest natural ingredients. The relaxing scent of lavender makes this line a joy to use.
What are the signs of aging?
Many people believe wrinkles signify aging, which is only part of the answer. Factors that make skin look older are not just fine lines and wrinkles but also skin discoloration, sun damage, hyper pigmentation and dehydration. On top of a healthy lifestyle of staying out of the sun, exercising and keeping yourself hydrated, specialized cleansers, toners, treatments and moisturizers that we provide cannot only help to prevent further signs of aging but also reverse the aging signs you already have.
What is your most effective anti-aging product?
The best defense against the signs of aging is to follow the four steps of any good skin care routine: Cleanse, Tone, Treat, and Moisturize. Sunscreen is a huge factor in preventing more damage to the skin. The entire Cellular Laboratories line is targeted for anti-aging. Adding the Timeless Prescription Face Peel system and Matriskin Collagen MP Serum, as well as our best selling VitaSheild OPC-3 Triple Serum will totally transform your skin.
How do I treat acne?
Timeless Prescription has excellent products for the treatment of acne. The 3-
step Acne Care System (11134) is oil-free and contains Benzoyl Peroxide.
Benzoyl peroxide works directly to reduce bacteria production on the skin and keep the pores clear, thus reducing the accumulation of impactions or “blackheads” on the skin’s surface. For active “whiteheads” try dabbing on Timeless Prescription Anti-Blemish Lotion (1269). Calamine Powder, Salicylic acid and Camphor work to dry out the pus and inflammation around the infected hair follicle.
It is important that people with severe acne take precaution to look at internal causes as well as external ones. Taking Timeless Prescription “PrevaDerm” (1352) will help to regulate the body, normalizing the skin. Also drinking water is key to flush toxins out of the body. Make sure that the person never touches their face with their hands; this spreads bacteria and oils, causing more breakouts.
How do I exfoliate the skin?
Exfoliation is important for anti-aging purposes as well as for those struggling with congested skin. Timeless Prescription has several products that exfoliate the skin. The most gentle would be Timeless Prescription Facial Exfoliating Cleanser (11120) with Enzymes and MDI Complex. This soap-free cleanser has natural fruit enzymes that gently slough away surface skin cells. F.A.C.E. pads are also gentle, yet effective exfoliaters. If you need a more aggressive exfoliation, Timeless Prescription Advanced Hydroxy Face Peel (6506) and Neutralizer pads are for you. The AHAs break down congestion and smooth away fine lines, revealing fresh glowing skin.
Cellular Laboratories De-Aging Facial Cleaner (11203) is also an extremely mild exfoliant. It contains Keratoline, an enzymatic exfoliation that gently eliminates the dead skin cells to reveal younger, healthier skin.
For an exfoliating lotion, try Skintelligence Alpha 24 (1275). It has a combination of alpha-hydroxy acids and an SPF 8 to promote healthier looking skin.
Exfoliate your skin based on your individual needs, some people need it every day, others can exfoliate once or twice weekly.
What is the best way to get rid of stretch marks or scars?
Pentaxyl (11150) is a revolutionary lotion that can be used on the body or face for deep wrinkles or stretch marks. The Matrixyl Complex promotes collagen production to even out the skin from within. The skin will appear more plump and uniform in texture and coloration. Use twice daily on the effected area.
How do you reduce under-eye circles and puffiness?

VitaShield Intensive Eye Firming Treatment (1255) contains a powerful blend of vitamins and coenzyme Q10 to reverse damage to the sensitive skin around the eye. When treating this area be sure to be extremely gentle. Use your ring finger to gently tap the product into the orbital bone.
Cellular Laboratories De-Aging Eye Crème (11194) also plumps and brightens the delicate skin around the eye.
We recommend using the Cellular Laboratories De-Aging Eye Crème as your under- eye moisturizer every day and VitaSheild Intensive Eye Firming Treatment as a specialty treatment a 3-5 times a week.
