Why Our Dermatologist Recommends Revision Skincare

What sets medical-grade skincare apart from other skincare brands in the industry is not just the quality of ingredients in the products but also the innovation and science that goes into developing new formulas with proven results. Revision Skincare, one of our most popular medical-grade skincare brands offered through Eastside Dermatology, has been innovating in the skincare industry for decades.

“I always recommend that my patients use a medical-grade products like those in the Revision Skincare line,” says Dr. Parks, one of our board-certified dermatologists and the co-founder of Eastside Dermatology. “The Revision Skincare line has been a leading source of innovation in the industry for years now, and their products are top-notch at helping patients achieve scientific results,” he says. 

Revision Skincare is committed to delivering products that put clinical results first. Its line ranges from products with active ingredients such as retinols and SPF to products with soothing ingredients like hyaluronic acid or peptides that are shown to provide real results. The product development stage of each of its products goes through rigorous testing that is validated by physicians before being sold to consumers. The company models its clinical testing structure after the pharmaceutical industry, demonstrating that the active product out performs the control through an intensive testing process. 

“Revision Skincare is a pioneer in disruptive innovation in the skincare world,” says Dr. Parks. “Its testing processes, combined with its use of high-quality and high-potency ingredients, means that my patients can see clinical, guaranteed results when using the products,” he says. Each product comes with published, peer reviewed clinical trials that are accessible from the Revision Skincare website. Customers can see Revision Skincare’s scientific advisory board here

Pioneers in Vitamin C Skincare

The company is well-known for its Vitamin C products, for example, which use high-potency THD-Ascorbate, one of the highest quality formulations of Vitamin C available on the market for topical skincare. The C+ Color Correcting Complex, for example, uses this high-potency form of Vitamin C to deliver powerful results that improve the appearance of damage caused by free radicals such as sun damage. In just 12 weeks, patients noticed a visibly brighter, smoother complexion in clinical trials. 

“Vitamin C is a great ingredient for patients looking to brighten and smooth their complexion,” says Dr. Parks. “The ingredient is a powerful antioxidant and can show a variety of results, from diminishing the signs of aging like fine lines and wrinkles to nourishing and protecting the skin against free radicals such as pollution,” he says. 

One of the most popular Revision Skincare products among our patients is the DEJ Eye Cream, which is clinically proven to improve the signs of aging specifically around the eye area. “The skin around the eyes is particularly delicate and can often be prone to sensitivity when using active ingredients,” says Dr. Parks. “The DEJ Eye Cream is powerful but gentle because it uses Vitamin C, where many competing products may use a retinol, which can cause that sensitivity that I mentioned before,” he says. 

Revision Skincare and the Microbiome

In recent years we’ve seen a trend in skincare that emphasizes the importance of a balanced skincare routine in order to protect the skin’s delicate microbiome. “The microbiome plays an important role in our overall health,” says Dr. Parks. “This delicate ecosystem of bacteria can help fight infection and contribute to our overall immune system function,” he says. Prebiotic and Probiotic topical skincare products can help feed and nourish the microbiome, helping to contribute to the overall health of your skin and body as a result. 

“Many patients focus on achieving results through active ingredients like retinol and Vitamin C, but the reality is that without balancing those ingredients with nourishing ingredients that can contribute to a healthy microbiome, they may end up doing more harm than good,” says Dr. Parks. “Because of this I generally recommend pairing any active ingredient with products that will nourish and repair the microbiome. Revision Skincare offers a great line of clinically proven prebiotic and probiotic products, as well as products with peptides that can contribute to a balanced, well-nourished microbiome,” he says. 

Any of the products in Revision Skincare’s DEJ line contain powerful pre and probiotics. These products use a combination of active ingredients and gentle, nourishing ingredients to deliver clinical results that balance the skin rather than address problems individually. The DEJ Daily Boosting Serum helps address a loss of elasticity, a rough skin texture, and an uneven skin tone by supporting the skin’s natural collagen and elastin while nourishing the microbiome as well. 


“What I love about Revision Skincare is that it offers a full line of products that patients can use together,” says Dr. Parks. The company offers a wide range of products designed to be used together, including SPF products that can protect the skin throughout the day from harmful UV damage from the sun. 

The Revision Skincare Intellishade line is a product line from Revision Skincare that combines SPF with the power of medical-grade skincare to not only protect the skin, but actively work to improve it. The product is also designed to be worn as a base layer to makeup, and can work to improve overall skin texture as a foundation to any makeup routine. 

“Revision Skincare is popular among our patients for a reason,” says Dr. Parks. “The wide range of products can address virtually any skin concern and provide clinically proven results to support their claims,” he says.
