Q: Does TOTAL DEFENSE + REPAIR offer better protection than a traditional sunscreen with a really high SPF?
A: Yes! Just because a product has a high SPF (ie, ≥ 50) does not mean it offers complete coverage against the sun’s rays.
With traditional broad-spectrum sunscreens, you get protection against UVA and UVB only—even with SPF 80. Getting more solar coverage is about having the right ingredients to go beyond UV protection and defend against IR-A rays.
What sets TOTAL DEFENSE + REPAIR apart is SOL-IR™ Advanced Antioxidant Complex. This trio of potent antioxidants is what enables TOTAL DEFENSE + REPAIR to protect against IR-A and help rejuvenate skin.
Q: How is the formulation of TOTAL DEFENSE + REPAIR different from other SkinMedica® sunscreens?
A: TOTAL DEFENSE + REPAIR is more than a sunscreen; it’s a rejuvenating superscreen, powered by SOL-IR™ Advanced Antioxidant Complex. Our other sunscreens are broad-spectrum, protecting against UVA and UVB. Total Defense + Repair also protects against IR-A. Plus, TOTAL DEFENSE + REPAIR is clinically tested to help rejuvenate skin and improve the overall appearance of skin.
Daily Physical Defense® SPF 30+, Environmental Defense Sunscreen™ SPF 50+ with UV ProPlex®, and TNS Ultimate Daily Moisturizer™ SPF 20 Sunscreen are still available.
Q: Does TOTAL DEFENSE + REPAIR work well with TNS Essential Serum®?
A: Yes. TNS Essential Serum® includes our proprietary growth factor blend, TNS®, which is not part of TOTAL DEFENSE + REPAIR. Those growth factors are very important for rejuvenation.
Both products include powerful antioxidants, but the blends are very different and are designed to work in different ways to support the skin. The two products complement each other.
Q: Does TOTAL DEFENSE + REPAIR work well with Vitamin C + E Complex?
A: Yes. Both products include powerful antioxidants, but the blends are very different and are designed to work in different ways to support the skin. TOTAL DEFENSE + REPAIR can be used during the day for solar protection with antioxidant benefits, and Vitamin C + E Complex could be used at night to assist in rejuvenation processes.
Q: Are there any SkinMedica® products that should NOT be used with TOTAL DEFENSE + REPAIR?
A: No. TOTAL DEFENSE + REPAIR can be used with any SkinMedica® product or regimen. It can add a layer of protection and correction to any regimen.
Q: How should TOTAL DEFENSE + REPAIR be applied?
A: TOTAL DEFENSE + REPAIR should be applied daily, in the morning, and every two hours or as needed. TOTAL DEFENSE + REPAIR should be the final product applied with any regimen.
