With a combination of biomolecular science and innovative ingredients, U.SK™ Under Skin (San Diego, Calif.) has created a new line of concentrated, sterilized solutions that pair with professional aesthetic treatments to boost efficacy and enhance results. The Skin Savers™ collection complements cosmetic procedures as they promote healing, reduce inflammation and even improve cell turnover. Patients enjoy immediate comfort, while practices benefit from increased patient satisfaction.
Skin Savers is high-performance skin care for professional use only. According to Barry DiBernardo, MD, medical director of New Jersey Plastic Surgery® in Montclair, N.J., the six effective formulations include Acne, Hydra, Hair, Age, Firmness and Clarify, and employ technologies for superior and effective penetration.“I use them predominantly with treatments that create disruptions in the skin’s surface such as microneedling and resurfacing,” he said.“But theoretically, because the molecule’s size is so small, it can penetrate the skin during non-invasive treatments, as well.”
Suneel Chilukuri, MD, is director of cosmetic surgery at Refresh Dermatology (Houston, Texas), where he has been a leader in nonsurgical facelifts for over 20 years. He shared his approach to combining the products with his treatments.“We most often pair the Clarify Skin Saver with a 1927 nm thulium laser or microneedling to enhance pigment improvement, decrease inflammation and prevent post-inflammatory pigmentation by inhibiting dendritogenesis,” he explained.
Each of the Skin Saver products complements specific treatments that address concerns from acne to anti-aging.“We combine U.SK’s Acne Skin Saver with a 650 ms Nd: YAG laser to clear most acne lesions in one to two days,” Dr. Chilukuri continued.“It incorporates soothing plant extracts to improve the skin barrier and decrease trans-epidermal water loss, while salicylic acid acts as a natural anti-inflammatory. The Firmness Skin Saver provides a noticeable tightening and uplifted appearance of the skin, which is achieved by stimulating cell proliferation, renewal, and reactivating cells that had stopped replicating properly.”
Dr. DiBernardo agreed that Skin Saver products enhance the patient experience.“I find the Hydra Skin Saver very useful and use it the most right now for our more aggressive treatments like resurfacing and RF micronee-dling,” he shared.“Once we apply the Skin Saver product, patients report an immediate comfort and soothing effect post-treatment, and they feel that their healing processes are starting immediately.”

According to Wendy Roberts, MD, a board-certified dermatologist in Rancho Mirage, Calif., Skin Savers give patients more value as they enjoy procedure efficiency. She explained that when doctors apply the products, the patient has less to think about post-procedure, which can improve the healing process. She also shared some product benefits.“The Hydra Skin Saver augments microdermabrasion, chemical peels, fractional CO2 and RF microneedling. It boosts brightness, collagen formation and promotes even pigmentation,” she reported.“Age Skin Saver is also great when used with RF microneedling and fractional CO2 and helps patients see the results quicker. In addition, the Hair Skin Saver can stand alone or can be used with RF microneedling to improve hair appearance with increased hair shine and decreased hair shaft breakage,” she added.
Patient satisfaction and experience are important for any cosmetic practice.“My number one priority is to provide the best results for our patients,” Dr. Chilukuri exclaimed.“I am always researching innovative options that will consistently benefit clients, and the biomolecular science behind Skin Savers is impressive.” U.SK Under Skin truly is the science behind the beauty that physicians can use to enhance patient results with innovative solutions that work.
