The one. two. PUNCH. Perfect pairings to plump up the perfect Valentine’s Day
Some things in life just go better together – and this concept of perfect pairings includes your skincare routine. When used together, certain treatments and products can either help to boost the results of one another or can keep things in balance. Here are a few of our favorite perfect pairings to help you get ready for the perfect Valentine’s Day:
- SkinMedica Instant Bright Eye Cream + Instant Bright Eye Mask
Whether the signs of aging are beginning to show, it’s been a long day (or night!), or environmental factors are impacting your eye area, you no longer need to settle for tired and dull-looking eyes. SkinMedica recently launched two new products that can drastically – and immediately – improve your eyes’ appearance.
Skin Medica’s Instant Bright Eye Cream is a refreshing eye treatment that hydrates, brightens, and helps to visibly firm the appearance of the delicate skin around the eyes. It instantly improves dark circles, fine lines and the crepiness and can be used both under the eyes and on the eye lids. Spoiler alert: it continues to work over time.
Need an extra boost? The Instant Bright Eye Mask ultra-hydrates and visibly improves puffiness. These premium gel patches are the perfect pairing with Instant Bright Eye Cream and together, they’re SkinMedica’s most comprehensive treatment for youthful-looking eyes.

- Lip Filler + HA5 Lip Plump
The quest for a perfect pout has continually grown in popularity over the past two decades and is considered a pretty common treatment for women of all ages. Whether you’ve always wished for fuller lips, lost lip volume over the years, or if you’ve noticed the appearance of fine lines around your lips, lip fillers will give your pucker a natural, fuller, and glossier look.
Just like facial skin, the skin on your lips loses collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid as you age (yes, the dreaded zipper lips!). Skin Medica’s HA5 Lip Plump visibly enhances your lips’ rosiness and plumpness, smooths fine lines and wrinkles, and improves the overall condition. Lip Plump can be used between cosmetic treatments, and should be used three or more times daily to achieve long term results.
- IPL + Genesis
Like chocolate and peanut butter, some things are just better together. By combining two of our favorite treatments – Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) and Genesis – you can restore your skin’s youthful glow.
IPL treatments use a specific wavelength of light to gently and precisely treat deep under the skin’s surface. It works to increase collagen production while improving brown & red spots, melasma, rosacea, acne, acne scars, fine lines, and wrinkles.
Similarly, Genesis uses non-invasive laser technology to smooth fine lines and wrinkles and reduce redness and scars. Genesis stimulates the natural production of collagen to restore a vibrant and healthy glow.
The lasers of IPL and Genesis work in sync to complement the effectiveness of one another. Paired together, these treatments will stimulate the body’s natural collagen production, and will help to restore your healthy, youthful glow.
- CoolSculpting and truSculpt Flex
Fall in love with every angle when you combine CoolSculpting and truSculpt flex.
If your diet and gym schedule aren’t giving you the results you want, it might be time for CoolSculpting. The #1 non-invasive, fat-reduction treatment, CoolSculpting® contours your body by literally freezing away unwanted fat with no downtime. CoolSculpting uses patented technology to target and destroys the fat cells that reside directly under your skin. Over time, your body naturally eliminates the dead cells, leaving a more sculpted you. Best of all, once the fat is gone, it’s gone for good.
The leading FDA-cleared solution for muscle sculpting and strengthening, truSculpt® flex picks up where your exercise regimen leaves off. Using Multi-Directional Stimulation (MDS), it targets specific muscle groups – abs, butt, and thighs! – using a unique method of electrical muscle stimulation that is able to cover the largest treatment area in the body sculpting industry.
