Your skin faces sun exposure, pollutants, and environmental stressors every day. While these factors can’t be controlled, you can protect and nourish your skin with a professional skin care regimen. The specialists at ICLS are proud to offer patients UniverSkin: a highly customized professional skin care line that was developed by a leading group of cosmetic surgeons, dermatologists, and skincare scientists.
This innovative skin care line addresses the challenges that many men and women face when creating their skincare routine. For instance, it’s common for people to rely on many products to address their needs: one for dry spots, one to control oil, one to lighten hyperpigmentation; the list goes on. UniverSkin solves this by providing just one or two customized products to address all of your skin care concerns.

This professional skin care line treats the most common skin issues, including the following:
- Facial aging, such as fine lines and wrinkles
- Acne and oily skin
- Dry, dehydrated skin
- Hyperpigmentation and discoloration
- Skin texture irregularities
- Flora overgrowth on the skin
The UniverSkin Approach to Skin Care
UniverSkin’s customized approach begins with a thorough skin analysis. Based on your unique needs, your skin care specialist will select from the UniverSkin “actives” to create a personalized formula that is then created on site.
These actives are color coded, and correspond to some of the most common skin problems:
Yellow – Oxidative Stress
The skin is regularly exposed to “oxidants,” which can damage your skin on the cellular level and accelerate the aging process. By protecting the skin against oxidants and reducing their harmful effects, your skin will become more resilient and appear brighter.
Pink – Loss of Volume
Loss of volume causes some of the most frustrating signs of age, including deep lines and drooping tissue. UniverSkin’s unique formulations can target volume loss at the source to restore fuller, firmer looking skin quality.
Red – Inflamed Skin
Skin inflammation affects many people, and it can range from mild redness to severe rosacea flare-ups. Previously, patients had to incorporate creams and ointments into their skin care routine to find relief. UniverSkin streamlines this process with effective, customized products that ease discomfort associated with inflamed skin and minimizes redness.
Blue – Dry Skin
Whether seasonal fluctuations or chronic skin conditions are the cause of dry skin, it is a common complaint that most people struggle with at some point. UniverSkin formulas can replenish dehydrated skin, repair the damaged skin barrier and help hydrate and smooth skin texture.
Grey – Texture
The build-up of dead skin cells is often the cause of roughness. Not only does this create skin texture issues, but it can make your complexion look dull and more aged. UniverSkin products contain actives that increase cellular turnover, dislodge grime from pores, and gently exfoliate the skin to reveal a brighter, glowing complexion.
Orange – Oily Skin
Over time, it’s common for the skin to change in response to hormonal fluctuations. One change in particular that many people experience is oily skin. UniverSkin addresses oily skin at the source by regulating the production of sebum. The result is shine-free, balanced skin with a significant reduction of acne breakouts.
Brown – Pigmentation
Pigmentation can be caused by sun exposure, hormonal fluctuations, acne scarring, and more. No matter the cause, UniverSkin’s custom formulations can restore your complexion to a smooth, even tone that is free of hyperpigmentation.
Green – Unbalanced Cutaneous Flora
It’s normal for a healthy amount of flora (colonies of bacteria) to cover the skin, but when the flora levels become unbalanced, this can cause persistent breakouts. With the right combination of actives, UniverSkin soothes breakouts and keeps healthy flora levels balanced to prevent further infections.
