UAB’s Skincare Line
UAB dermatologists have teamed up with a pharmaceutical company to create an innovative, safe, and effective skincare line to address the needs of our patients at reasonable prices. We have developed sunscreens, anti-aging moisturizers, pigment-correcting serums, and products to help with acne, all of which are formulated using the highest quality, pharmaceutical-grade ingredients. The pharmaceutical company manufacturing our products closely monitors and controls each step of product development in its state-of-the-art, FDA-registered facility.
Neocutis is one of our dermatologist’s favorite skincare lines. Neocutis was developed by leading Swiss scientists who discovered PSP®
through years of research in wound healing. PSP® stands for “processed skin cell proteins” and is a patented cosmetic ingredient that is referred to as the Cadillac of peptides. PSP® is an optimal blend of nourishing proteins and polypeptides that harness the power of human growth factors, interleukins, and other cytokines to help deliver powerful skin revitalization.
As an alternative to PSP®, MPC™ (micro protein complex) was created to mimic PSP but is botanically based. Both proteins assist with skin rejuvenation to help address the signs of aging including skin elasticity, firmness, fine lines, and wrinkles.
The specific micro proteins found in MPC™ are foundational in the nourishment of collagens I, III, and VII, elastin, and hyaluronic acid necessary for youthful-looking skin.
At UAB, we carry both the Neocutis PSP and MPC skincare lines.
SkinMedica was brought to UAB dermatology because of its innovative research and technology in skincare. SkinMedica® was founded by pioneers in the science of skin rejuvenation with whom our dermatologist trained, including the SkinMedica® co-founder and renowned dermatologist Richard Fitzpatrick, MD. They had a vision to develop a better way to slow the aging process and unlock the potential of the skin to heal from within. In 1999, the groundbreaking scientifically based skincare line called SkinMedica® was born with the production of TNS, and the company continues to develop highly efficacious products for patients seeking healthier skin.
EltaMD is a skincare line that uses gentle, safe ingredients. The sunscreens help prevent sunburn and decrease the risk of skin cancer and early skin aging caused by the sun when used with other sun protection measures. EltaMD sunscreens are formulated with transparent zinc oxide and are non-comedogenic, sensitivity free, fragrance-free, and paraben-free. All EltaMD sunscreens are recommended by The Skin Cancer Foundation as effective broad-spectrum sunscreens. UAB Cosmetic Dermatology loves this line because it is effective and gentle.
ZO Skin Health
ZO Skin Health was developed by Zen Obaji and delivers innovative skincare solutions that optimize skin health based on the latest advances in skin therapy technologies, unique delivery systems, bioengineered complexes, and exclusive formulations. By providing comprehensive skincare programs for physicians and their patients, ZO Skin Health bridges the gap between therapeutic treatments and daily care, allowing patients to experience continuously healthy skin regardless of their age, ethnicity, or unique skin condition. At UAB, we love ZO’s line for melasma and rosacea
SkinCeuticals was brought to UAB because of their mission to improve SKIN HEALTH. SkinCeuticals was founded by Dr. Sheldon Pinnell, who established SkinCeuticals as the skincare industry’s antioxidant authority. Dr. Pinnell’s groundbreaking, peer-reviewed research and comprehensive dermatologic knowledge resulted in the Duke University Antioxidant patent, which is now the gold standard for topical antioxidant formulations and licensed exclusively to SkinCeuticals. They are committed to leading the skincare industry in terms of research and innovation, and promise to provide advanced skincare backed by science. Their philosophy centers on three main pillars: PREVENT. PROTECT. CORRECT. These principles work synergistically to provide the healthiest skin possible, and optimal anti-aging results.

Epionce is a physician-strength skin care line created by clinical dermatologist, Dr. Carl Thornfeldt. Epionce is rooted in hard science and integrates over 20 years of clinical skin research. Epionce is formulated to help unleash the natural potential of your skin. Our unique approach provides a blend of key botanical ingredients to reveal healthier-looking skin that can help improve the visible effects of aging – giving you smoother, more radiant skin.
