The D.O.S.E. is customized to fight the issues in the skin that concern you the most, such as pigmentation, aging, brightening, redness, and many others. The consultation begins by taking a short quiz which is designed to pinpoint the concerns that bother you the most, from there the customized ingredients will be selected to best address that skin concern. Once you get your results, they will walk you through the ingredients list, carefully choosing each that suits your skin type. The best part of the Custom D.O.S.E. is watching as your personalized serum is created. Each ingredient is carefully measured as it is mixed and compounded for you specifically in the office. The best part is that the formulation contains no preservatives, pure ingredients, and can last up to 90 days, depending on your usage.

Best results can be achieved with the D.O.S.E. when you return to your skincare provider to get an update on your skin’s assessment. A new formulation depending on the evolution of your skin, which is ever-changing.


SkinCeuticals Custom D.O.S.E. contains over 24 individual ingredients. Consultants combine them at different percentages depending on your skin needs, making over 2,000 mixtures. Once your dermatologist addresses your skincare concerns, the machine algorithm develops and formulates your perfect serum.

Each formulation contains a mixture of various ingredients that serves different purposes. Here’s how they are classified:

Exfoliating Ingredients

The skin naturally sheds dead skin to create room for new cells typically every 30 days and slows as we age. Unfortunately, sometimes the dead cells have trouble lifting off the skin completely. This is where exfoliators come in to help remove the dead skin cells from the skin’s surface.

Exfoliation benefits the skin as it improves its appearance by making it look brighter and enhance product absorption. Regular exfoliation prevents clogged pores and helps with fewer breakouts. It also increases collagen production to help with signs of aging.

Custom D.O.S.E. contains the following exfoliating products:

  • Glycolic acid – enhances skin texture, radiance, and tone while reducing fine lines
  • Lactic acid – facilitates exfoliation
  • Phytic acid – promotes the skin’s glow by providing dual-action exfoliation
  • Hepes – refines the texture of the skin and helps the skin maintain adequate moisture levels
  • Hydrovance – enhances the texture of the skin while promoting the moisture levels

Brightening Ingredients

Skin brighteners help with a multitude of issues such as reducing post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation, photodamage, melasma, and hyperpigmentation. Custom D.O.S.E. contains the following brighteners:

  • Tranexamic Acid – helps brighten the skin color
  • Kojic acid – brightens the skin while minimizing discoloration
  • Niacinamide – reduces the appearance of blotchiness and discoloration while strengthening the skin’s moisture barrier
  • Licorice Root Extract – promotes even skin tone and reduces discoloration
  • Mulberry Extract – promotes even skin tone while preventing discoloration
  • SymWhite – helps remove the discolored patches of skin and brightens the skin

Enhancing Ingredients

Skin enhancers interact with cells to increase permeability. This way, the skin becomes better at providing the necessary barrier against harsh conditions, environmental threats, and pathogens.

  • Proxylane – provides support to the skin’s matrix and also restores its firmness, helps prevent the breakdown of the skin’s own Hylauronic acid
  • Retinol – aids the production of healthy skin cells, eliminates uneven skin tone, and reduces wrinkles and fine lines

Clarifying Ingredients

The clarifying agents in the Custom D.O.S.E. target problematic skin types such as acne-prone skin, rosacea, hyperpigmentation. They work best in oily or congested skin types, helping them to effectively clear impurities.

Clarifying ingredients also reduce inflammation and prepare the skin for corrective agents while getting rid of the factors that lead to skin problems. The ingredients are:

  • Azelaic acid– helps improve uneven skin tone, promote skin clarity, reduce fine lines and imperfections

Base Ingredients

The base ingredients are the foundational components that strengthen the skin and improve its supportive features. These ingredients serve as a base for the other active ingredients that go into each D.O.S.E.

  • Hydroalcoholic- an oil-free base works well for normal, oily, or combination skin
  • Emulsion- acts as a conditioning agent to promote a light and silky texture, works well for dry to normal skin

Custom D.O.S.E. and Comprehensive Skincare Regime

If you’re worried whether you can incorporate your Custom D.O.S.E. in your at-home regime, worry no more. It’s highly recommendable to make it part of your daily skincare regime. If you use it in the morning, ensure to apply it after an antioxidant serum or before a sunscreen.

If using it in the evening, it should come after cleansing and before a moisturizer or other products. If your custom serum contains retinol, ensure you discuss the specific usage instructions with your skincare expert. The retinol in Custom D.O.S.E. is in the natural form and much more potent than many skin products you buy off the shelves.

You may also choose to pair your Custom D.O.S.E. with an in-office treatment. It serves to complement many procedures and treatments such as light-based laser therapiesneurotoxins, and chemical peels.
