Skin concerns such as ageing, skin damage, hyperpigmentation, acne and sun damage can all affect your self-confidence.

Epionce is a range of skin products and treatments created by American dermatologist, Dr Carl Thornfeldt MD, who has over 25 years of skin research experience, 22 US patents granted and more than 20 scientific publications on skin disease and conditions.

Founded in 2002, Epionce was introduced as a skin care line that uses botanical ingredients in proven concentrations in order to treat the skin without causing irritation. Having been voted one of the best anti-ageing skincare lines in the US, it is fast becoming one of the most popular ranges to be used in aesthetic clinics in the UK.

Epionce is ideal for all skin types and is both paraben and fragrance free. Over 20 years of research has gone into developing the range of products and it has proven its effectiveness in many independent clinical trials. Epionce is made up of a unique blend of active ingredients that have been designed to work together. Epionce formulae combines a highly effective delivery system with potent botanical antioxidants and anti-inflammatory ingredients in proven therapeutic concentrations.

What are the benefits of Epionce Skin Care?

  • Reduce the signs of skin ageing
  • Lessen the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles
  • Reduce skin imperfections such as age spots
  • Help to reduce acne and rosacea flare ups
  • Help provide relief from the symptoms of eczema
  • Repair and protect skin before and after treatments such as skin peels

How does Epionce work?

In most cases, skin care products are likely to remain on the surface of the skin providing no benefit – and once washed off the effects are gone. Epionce products deliver a unique blend of active botanical ingredients which are able to penetrate deep within the skin. The results are smooth glowing skin which has a strong healthy barrier to help prevent the effects of ageing.

Epionce Treatment

Epionce Skin Peels

As well as a wide range of products, we are also able to offer patients Epionce Skin Peel treatments in-clinic with our skin specialists.

Epionce skin peels have been formulated to increase cell turnover which will improve the appearance and texture of the skin.

Epionce created two peels, both are excellent supplements to enhance your at-home skin care results. In addition to an Epionce at-home regime, a series of skin peels can help you to achieve better clearing of acne and hyperpigmentation, reduce fine lines and soften wrinkles.

Epionce Lite Peel: Refresh

Our Epionce Lite Peel Refresh is the least aggressive of our peels and makes an ideal treatment for patients who may have never had a peel before, patients who want a lighter peel or as one off booster treatment that does not require downtime. The Epionce Lite Peel Refresh is typically well tolerated by very sensitive skin types who just cannot take the medical-strength Epionce Peel System. For the best results, we recommend a series of 3- 6 peels, each spaced 2 weeks apart, and  we can gradually build the time the peel is left on the skin over time. You will have no to very minimal reaction and your skin will see the benefit of regular, gentle cell turnover

The peel is intended to help increase hydration in the skin, encourage cell turnover rates and give patients a brighter and smoother appearance with no peeling or flaking.

Epionce Corrective Peel

The Epionce Corrective Peel is a stronger and more advanced treatment designed to target wrinkles, pigmentation, acne and rosacea. The peel can be varied in strength and intensity making it a fully customisable treatment to suit the patient. It is important that Epionce products have been used on the skin for two weeks prior to the treatment to help prepare the skin. A course of 6 Epionce Corrective Peels are usually required to help achieve the best results.


After Your Epionce Treatment

It is normal to experience mild stinging and tightness, but it should subside within 24-48 hours following the procedure. If you have had a stronger peel you may experience a peeling process approximately 2-4 days post-procedure. It is common to experience some temporary skin discoloration, dryness and flaking, usually around the nose and lips. Medical Barrier Cream will help relieve those symptoms. You must let the treated skin exfoliate naturally.

Patients should avoid prolonged sun exposure and excessive heat, hot rooms and hot water temperature for 48 hours following treatment and we recommend using SPF on the skin. Retin-A™ or similar products should not be used for 48 hours following the procedure, unless otherwise recommended by your practitioner.

How can I get the best result from Epionce Skin Peels?

We recommend that patients prepare their skin for an Epionce skin peel by using Epionce products at home as part of their daily routine for at least 2 weeks. The Epionce Renewal products are the best at preparing and strengthening the skin which will help you to achieve the best results from your skin peel and reduce the risk of irritation.

Patients are then encouraged to continue using their Epionce products at home and to complete a course of skin peels to ensure they get the best result from treatment.

Our skin care specialists will be able to further advise you on how to get the best from your treatment. Book a consultation today.

How do I know that Epionce products work?

Epionce products have all been through clinical studies performed by independent research organizations and adhere to the highest standards. The data from these studies are peer reviewed and published at medical conferences and in scientific journals. All products have been clinically tested against other leading products and have been able to prove visible improvements of fine lines, pigmentation, sun spots, dry skin, blemishes, skin texture and overall skin clarity and radiance.

Why do Epionce products have a higher cost?

Epionce products are part of a physician-based skin care line which means that the products are formulated with high quality ingredients and breakthrough technology. The results from Epionce are supported by third part clinical studies which set these products apart from many others.

These products are only available from approved clinics and we advise patients to take caution if purchasing Epionce products through internet resellers such as eBay as they are most likely not to be authorised resellers. Epionce are unable to vouch for the authenticity or condition of the products sold on these sites, and Episciences Europe does not take any responsibility for purchaser dissatisfaction.

Can I use Epionce products whilst pregnant?

The majority of Epionce products can be used throughout pregnancy. This is because many of the ingredients used in the products are absorbed before entering the bloodstream and they do not have any FDA recommendations on restrictive use.

Epionce products are ideal for helping to control any skin concerns that may occur during pregnancy such as acne breakouts, dryness and hyperpigmentation.

There are some Epionce products that we recommend patients not to use whilst pregnant or breastfeeding however and these are; Lite Lytic TX, Lytic TX, Lytic Sport TX, Melanolyte TX and Melanolyte Pigment Perfection Serum

We are unable to perform any chemical peels, including Epionce Lite Refresh and Corrective peels on any patients who are pregnant.

If in doubt, we would also recommend speaking to your GP or midwife about using any products whilst pregnant or breastfeeding.
