What is seen when you present yourself to the world? Your hair, your eyes, your mouth, YOUR SKIN! I have always said that it is necessary to feed your skin from the outside as well as the inside, so I developed Alexis M.D. products to scientifically nourish the skin. There are many products that you could choose, but what is right for you? What will protect your skin in this harsh high desert? We age faster in this Colorado climate, so the nutrients that we apply topically are vital to the health and quality of our skin.
I have spent more than 25 years developing products that will best suit the lifestyle and needs of my aesthetic dermatology patients. My patients know that beauty is “more than skin deep.” The beauty of your skin is dependent upon the foods you eat, the environmental exposure you tolerate, the toxins you endure and most importantly something you can absolutely control, the products you use on your skin.
I developed my products for ease of use, safety, and effectiveness. First, they are toxin free. Alexis M.D. uses essential oils, rather than parabens and phenoxyethanol, to safely preserve the products. All products need preservatives for safety and shelf life otherwise they would have to be refrigerated. Look at your shampoos, conditioners, skin moisturizers, etc. If they are paraben free, they may contain phenoxyethanol. Parabens have been associated with breast cancer. We do not yet know all the damage that phenoxyethanol may cause as its use is just now skyrocketing in paraben free products. In studies, phenoxyethanol has been shown to cause neurological abnormalities in infants.
Secondly, Alexis MD skincare is chirally correct. What does this mean? Biochemicals can rotate either left (L) or right (D), but only one direction is the active form. For example, the retinol in Alexis M.D. products is L-retinol. The L form is the active form that will affect your skin. Some ingredients are in the D form if that form is active. A product with just retinol has both L and D forms so not all the retinol is active. The D-retinol just takes up space and does nothing for the skin. Science makes the products WORK!
Alexis MD products contain the most important ingredients for skin health, skin correction and skin rejuvenation. You have heard the buzz words: Antioxidants, alpha hydroxy acids, beta hydroxy acids, peptides, vitamin C, vitamin A, vitamin E, glutathione, panthenol, retinol, hyaluronic acid, tea tree oil, calendula, carrot oil, green tea to name a few. In combination, you can get all these nutrients into your skin, without toxins, chirally correct, and balanced biochemically with Alexis M.D.
Alexis M.D. skin care products literally “Feed Your Face.” Your skin is your largest organ and the last to benefit from the food you eat. It is critical to feed it the best nutrients available. These products are designed to be well absorbed, bioactive, and free of toxins.
Finally, Alexis M.D. products are simply labeled and easy to use. The names state the purpose or key ingredient in the product. The products are designed to be mixed and matched so that you do not have the hassle of 4 to 5 steps. The products are synergistic and more effective when used together. Patients love them and many see a difference in their skin in as little as a week with the “Anti-Aging Triad,” a combination of Profound C Complex, Profound A Complex, and Profound Peptide. Add a Moisturizing Cleanser and your skin is sure to glow.

Moisturizing Cleanser does what its name implies. It is designed to cleanse and hydrate while removing the dirt, makeup, and impurities that collect on the skin. It preserves the natural essential oils in the skin. This is a great cleanser for the Colorado climate where dryness is our enemy. We must protect our natural skin oils to keep the skin soft and supple. This cleanser is perfect for dry and normal skin.
Profound C Complex is the most important product because the skin cannot build collagen without vitamin C and we do not produce it in our bodies. Your brain and internal organs take most of the vitamin C that you eat, so you need to apply it to the skin. Alexis M.D. Profound C Complex combines 20% C with additional antioxidants, humectants, L-retinol and many other beneficial ingredients.
Profound A Complex contains several types of Vitamin A. Animal sources are called retinoids and plant sources are called carotenoids. Both forms of vitamin A are included in this Alexis M.D. product. Your body converts carotenoids to vitamin A. Vitamin A and its derivatives exfoliate the epidermis and protect the skin from the damaging rays of the sun. L-Retinol is better tolerated on the skin than tretinoin, Retin-A.
Profound Peptide contains short peptide chains that act like messengers in the skin and patrol the production of collagen Profound Peptide lotion has all the essential ingredients for the stimulation of collagen growth, cell turnover, mild exfoliation, antioxidants to fight free radicals (including glutathione), L- retinol to protect the skin from the damaging radiation of the sun, peptides for collagen growth and regeneration and botanical extracts for additional skin health.
