IS Clinical Youth Complex

Suitability, performance and superiority of this product against other options are only guaranteed when prescribed.

IS Clinical Youth Complex

IS Clinical Youth Complex is a mildly acidic day and/or nighttime antioxidant and moisturizing serum with a profound and weightless oil-free hydrating effect and a moderate skin-resurfacing and firming effect.

IS Clinical Youth Complex rapidly smoothes and softens the skin with a unparalleled concentration of both hyaluronic acid and sodium hyaluronate in combination with glycerin, twenty times more concentrated than even Cellex-C Hydra B Complex and Skinceuticals Hydrating B5 Gel. The product's moisturizing effect is sufficient to dramatically reduce the appearance of deeper wrinkles within an hour of the first application.

A combination of alpha hydroxy acids similar or identical to that found in Skinceuticals Intense Line Defense (glycolic, lactic, tartaric, citric and malic totaling 12%) helps refine skin texture, further hydration, stimulate tone and reduce the appearance of visibly open pores.

Titrated extracts of Centella asiatica help stimulate the production of collagen and reduce skin sensitivity. IS Clinical Youth Complex contains all three beneficial fractions of Centella asiatica: asiatic acid, madecassoside (common to La Roche-Posay Redermic) and asiaticoside (common to Skinceuticals Eye Cream, Skinceuticals Skin Firming Cream and Skinceuticals Epidermal Repair).

Madecassoside reduces the activity of dermal matrix degrading enzymes (MMPs — Matrix Metalloproteinases of type I, 3 and 9) which break down the compounds occurring chiefly as components of connective tissue. Accordingly, madecassoside is used in products intended to volumize lips, help prevent hair loss and stretch marks.

IS Clinical Youth Complex also contains soy isoflavones to further help support the production of collagen and hyaluronate and provide treatment of very mild hyperpigmentation.

The product's antioxidant effects stem from its tartaric, citric and malic acids in addition to blueberry extract, which has demonstrated protection against glycation end products and is found in a number of other IS Clinical products, Obagi Elastiderm, M Lab and Skinceuticals AGE Interrupter and AGE Eye Complex.

The majority of this product's effects are due to its superior moisturizing ability for dehydrated skin (skin lacking water rather than oil). Skin lacking adequate natural oils will do better with alternative products. Long term effects of ongoing use are more modest and further improvement can be made by modification to use.

IS Clinical Youth Complex is applied AM and/or PM in place of a moisturizing product (if using other IS Clinical products, apply in place of IS Clinical Firming Complex or Moisturizing Complex) . Apply any antioxidant immediately before IS Clinical Youth Complex. Ideally, leave the product to act for 5-10 minutes before applying sunscreen. This product should not be applied at the same time as retinoids or other prescription products.
