Instant Contour Firming Treatment – The New “Facelift in a Jar”

Imagine a complexion that is lifted, tightened, firmed and contoured without surgery, ultrasound machines and downtime. A “facelift in a jar” that can be used at home. Sounds too good to be true, right? Well, that product is finally here and is for all skin types!

Lancer Skincare is launching a brand-new advanced treatment called Instant Contour Firming Treatment, which was inspired by in-office procedures performed by Dr. Lancer. At the Beverly Hills clinic, Dr. Lancer uses specific ultrasound machines to tighten and lift loose, sagging skin, ultimately giving a facelift using energy. While ultrasound machines are highly effective, Dr. Lancer also wanted to create a topical product that could be used at home to get similar results for those who are unable to visit the office. The product is easy to use, produces immediate and long-term anti-aging benefits, and works quickly to produce a firmer, lifted, more taut appearance.

So what are the secret ingredients to make this product so effective and unique? It is formulated with six incredible ingredients that produce immediate results, and long-term benefits. Together, they are the perfect cookbook to a youthful transformation.

Cone Snail Venom Bio Peptide, Honey Locust Seed and Hyaluronic Acid are ingredients that help produce immediate results. Cone Snail Venon Bio Peptide instantly relaxes lines and wrinkles while Honey Locust Seed tightens and smooth wrinkles in no time. Hyaluronic Acid plumps and hydrates the skin, making it feel fresh, balanced and comfortable.

For ingredients that produce long-term benefits, Squalane, Kangaroo Paw Flower and Inca Nut Peptide are added. Squalane hydrates and boosts the moisture barrier, Kangaroo Paw Flower lifts and firms skin long-term while boosting collagen and elastin production, and Inca Nut Peptide sculps and smooths the skin, reducing the appearance of the sagging.

When using this product, it’s recommended that you apply a small amount to the face in the morning and at night, after using The Method: Cleanse. Focus on areas of the face that would benefit, such as the eye area, jowls, and nasolabial folds. Finish your skincare routine with The Method: Nourish, and in the morning, follow with sunscreen.

Instant Contour Firming Treatment is also the perfect complement for our Contour Décolleté Firming Concentrate. Both products work to give you younger, firmer skin and contain Cone Snail Venom Bio-Peptide, the ingredient that reduces the appearance of lines and wrinkles. Instant Contour Firming Treatment can be used on the face while Contour Décolleté Firming Concentrate is recommended for the neck, décolleté and bustline.

Forgetting Something? Contour Decollete, Please!

Life before the COVID-19 pandemic. Going to the theater, table for 6 at your favorite restaurant without a care in the world. Remember dinner parties? You were surrounded by great company and a generous amount of food and wine. The glassware, plates and utensils were all of a similar style and complimented each other well. Every element of the dinner party worked together, making the evening a success. Think about that last dinner party you went to.

When Dr. Lancer sees new patients, he uses his dinner party concept as an example of how patients should care for their skin. Most new patients tend to focus on facial skin imperfections, pointing out the obvious blemish or wrinkle. The focus on that one area is so intense, that we don’t notice what’s around it, causing us to neglect parts of the skin that desperately need our attention. It’s important to remember that skincare isn’t just for the forehead to the jawline. The hairline to the chest should be cared for with equal treatment. Think of it this way: The hairline to the chest is like the table at your dinner party. You need everything to match and compliment each other to garner the most beautiful results.

Dr. Lancer’s dinner party philosophy opens our eyes to our current skin’s condition. Your face, neck and chest most likely have different skin tones and textures. Your neck in particular might need the most repair, having deep lines, sagging skin and ultimately showing the most signs of aging. Those deep lines that we notice are actually wrinkles and become more visible over time. “The skin’s appearance on the neck and décolleté can give away a person’s true age, ”says Dr. Lancer. As we age, skin loses elastin and collagen. Elastin allows skin to stretch and bounce back providing a tighter appearance. It gives skin its structure. Collagen is a protein serving as one of the main building blocks for our skin. It keeps our skin from sagging as it holds up the top layer of the skin, giving us that plump, youthful look we desire. While aging is the main reason for a change in the necks appearance, other factors such as UV exposure, pollutants in the environment, poor lifestyle choices and constantly looking down at your phone definitely accelerate skin aging.

While our first instinct is to search the internet for anything that can help repair the skin, it’s important to remember that the neck’s skin needs a specific treatment because of the way the skin differs below the face. The neck and chest in particular have a different cellular structure than facial skin. The skin is thinner and more delicate with less fat under the skin. It also has less oil gland production and often sees signs of dehydration quicker than other areas. With this difference, Dr. Lancer created a unique treatment to give the neck the catch up that it needs.

Contour Decollete is a firming concentrate used to hydrate, sculpt and lift the delicate area of the neck, helping to reverse the signs of aging. Designed for all skin types, Contour Decollete contains Marine Cone Snail Venom, a 5-peptide liposomal system and an acid-free exfoliating blend, giving the neck and decollete the recipe that it needs for repair. Marine Cone Snail Venom is the key to reducing visible signs of aging around the neck and decollete, while the 5-peptide liposomal system mimics the skin’s natural growth factors, encouraging a synergistic, youth-inducing effect on the skin. The acid-free exfoliating blend works to create smoother texture and tone for a visibly lifted, more plump and radiant appearance. Developed for prompt and long-lasting improvements for the delicate neck, décolleté and bust line areas, this lightweight serum immediately absorbs to plump and smooth away surface dehydration, soften the appearance of lines and crepiness, and improve surface texture.

Initially, Contour Decollete should be applied once daily. As your skin becomes acclimated to the product, applications can be increased to twice a day. When using, gently massage the serum into cleansed skin on the neck, decollete and bustline with upward strokes until completely absorbed. As with all Advanced Treatments, Contour Decollete should be used in tandem with The Method: Polish, Cleanse and Nourish for optimal results. And don’t forget your sunscreen! We recommend Dr. Lancer’s Sheer Fluid Sun Shield with SPF 30 to help enhance results and protect the skin from damage caused by UV rays. For everyone that’s concerned that their decollete area will never be the same – know this can be reversable. It just needs a little love, care and the right ingredients to revive it, just like a dinner party.

The Beauty Of Exfoliation

Exfoliation is one of those fancy terms for removing debris. An exfoliating product removes debris from the skin’s surface as it stimulates new oxygen flow, new cell metabolism, new protein production, and begins restoring the skin. Skin looks and feels fresh post exfoliation and it helps tremendously with evening out skin tone. It’s important to exfoliate on a daily basis to keep your complexion radiant and healthy. But remember, you’ll need to get every inch of your body – not just your face!

The Method: Polish is the number one exfoliating product at Lancer Skincare. The product was developed from the 1983 / 1984 thought process of its founder, Dr. Lancer, who understood the need to remove debris from an area wanting to be restored before cleansing the skin. When Lancer re-developed the proper theory and practice of skincare, the clinic served as the focus on patient care to develop the Lancer Polish-Cleanse-Nourish protocol. Polish is the first step of the 3-step system and is used to gently remove surface debris and dull, dry surface cells to reveal a brighter, smoother, and more even toned complexion. The product contains a generous mix of crystals, pumpkin and pomegranate enzymes and can be used on the face, neck and décolleté. In addition, there is an alternate version for the body which can be used from the shoulders down. Both products can be used daily or every other day to exfoliate or remove dead skin cells that are interfering with the normal metabolic function of living tissue so that all the active ingredients in Lancer products work better. After The Method: Polish, use The Method: Cleanse to remove any remaining impurities left on the skin and The Method: Nourish to hydrate the skin while providing anti-aging benefits.

Dr. Lancer also developed an instrument so that you can exfoliate your skin from home – the Pro Polish Microdermabrasion Device. Inspired by the PowerPeel Microdermabrasion machine used at Lancer Dermatology, the new patented device allows you to experience optimal exfoliation for the face and body in the privacy of your own home. The device comes equipped with a diamond tipped component for small areas like the face, neck and hands, and has a second attachment for the larger areas of the body. The Pro Polish Microdermabrasion Device was designed to be used 1-2x/week and has 3 power levels to choose from. Some may use it on their face. Some might use it on just their elbows. It can be a broad use mechanical instrument treatment or a focal area of concern treatment device. It varies from person to person. With consistent use, skin should appear smoother, even toned and healthy.

The Method: Polish and Pro Polish Microdermabrasion Device are both crucial to the concept of Lancer Skincare because they promote the idea that you must remove debris – dead, non-functioning interfering skin cells before cleansing, advanced product use and nourishing the skin. It’s important to note that they should not be used on the same day and in the same area because it would be over stimulating the region.

Exfoliation is the key to obtaining beautiful, clean skin so remember to include it in your daily skincare regimen as it will make a huge difference in your complexion from head to toe.

Gentle Exfoliating Peel Pads

For a Brighter, Even Complexion in 2021

We are ever-changing. Our wants, fears, lifestyle, circumstances and appearance are constantly in flux. Look at life today. The new normal is working from home in comfy PJs, wearing a mask when in public and staying 6 feet apart. Our mask keeps us safe and healthy, but it can also cause some unwanted changes in our skin. Face coverings often cause skin imperfections like acne, dryness and a rough, uneven skin tone.

To improve dull, uneven skin tone and rough skin texture, Dr. Lancer developed Gentle Exfoliating Peel Pads, a new, effective treatment for all skin types. Featuring 7% Lactic Acid and Bakuchiol, these peel pads gently exfoliate the skin and is recommended for all skin types, including sensitive skin. The product gradually resurfaces and brightens skin with the swipe of a pre-dosed pad and is a gentle alternative to laser resurfacing and chemical peels. These peel pads are to be used after The Method: Cleanse and should be used every other day, in the morning or at night.

So, what’s in these exfoliating pads that make this product so beneficial? Each pad is made from biodegradable bamboo and contains a blend including 7% Lactic Acid, Bakuchiol, Papaya Fruit Extract and Oat Bran Extract.

Diving deeper into our ingredients list…

  • Lactic Acid is known to exfoliate the upper layers of the skin while stimulating cell renewal in the skin’s epidermis. Exfoliation and cell renewal brightens your complexion, creating a more youthful, vibrant glow.

  • Bakuchiol is a plant-derived natural retinol alternative (aka Vitamin A) for anti-aging. This ingredient reduces fine lines and wrinkles by plumping the skin and smoothing out rough skin texture.

  • Papaya Fruit Extract, also known as medicinal tree, is another powerful ingredient for skin brightening and wrinkle reduction. Papaya Fruit Extract also purifies the skin while providing antioxidant benefits and balancing the skin.

  • Lastly, Oat Bran Extract is a multi-benefit ingredient that protects the skin’s barrier function, helping to retain skin’s moisture as it soothes the skin and relieves it of any dryness.

Together, these ingredients are the cookbook to a fresher, renewed complexion, while providing anti-aging benefits.

To seal in these powerful ingredients and keep the skin hydrated, apply Method Nourish to finish your skincare routine. Our aestheticians also recommend using the Soothe & Hydrate Serum with hyaluronic acid to calm the skin while bathing it in hydration. The Active Rejuvenation Serum is also highly recommended, as it hydrates, softens and lifts the skin, for a more youthful and radiant complexion.

The Game Plan for Radiant Skin

Your skin’s condition can reveal a lot about you, like if you’re spending plenty of time outdoors or applying sunscreen as much as you say you do. If we’re being honest, we can be complacent and not always use the proper protection needed for our skin. Luckily, our skin produces melanin—the natural skin pigment that protects skin cells from UV rays. However, relying on melanin alone doesn’t give you the necessary protection. Without sunscreen and the proper care, you’ll start to see the skin imperfections you’ve been warned about.

Hyperpigmentation—irregular darkening of the skin—is a common skin issue caused by multiple factors. Excessive sun exposure is the #1 leading factor as it can result in sun damage. When unprotected skin is exposed to the sun, melanin production kicks into overdrive as it attempts to protect the skin from damaging UV rays. However, the overproduction of melanin is what causes skin discoloration and uneven skin tone. Hyperpigmentation also results from air pollution, scars, and hormonal changes. Sometimes laser procedures can cause unexpected pigmentation if not done properly.

So, what can we do now to help fade dark spots and achieve radiant, glowing skin? We can commit to protecting our skin moving forward by limiting sun exposure, applying sunscreen daily, and using the right skincare regimen to restore our skin.

Corrective Lightening Treatment by Dr. Lancer is a new, highly effective OTC product that helps gradually fade skin discoloration such as dark spots, age spots, and UV-induced hyperpigmentation, helping to revitalize skin’s radiance. Corrective Lightening Treatment doesn’t alter a person’s natural skin color. Its sole purpose is to reduce unwanted dark spots and discoloration to give a balanced, radiant complexion.

This powerful serum contains 2% Hydroquinone, Dr. Lancer’s #1 recommended ingredient to lighten unwanted pigmentation. The maximum hydroquinone concentration available without a prescription is 2% and is the key to fading dark spots. It’s the champion ingredient for skin tone correction, and Dr. Lancer has been using it to fade skin discoloration for years. When creating products, he uses the motto: Practice to Product. Everything used in the office is created as a product for patients to use at home. Corrective Lightenting Treatment also contains Niacinamide, also known as vitamin B3, which helps improve the look of skin texture, enlarged pores, and firmness.

With a handle on Corrective Lightening Treatment, we can use it as part of an overall skincare regimen to achieve radiant and healthy skin. But how do we find the right products for us? Dr. Lancer shares his secret—the Lancer Ancestry Scale to determine the right skincare routine for each patient.

In 1997, Dr. Lancer attended the American Society for Laser Medicine and Surgery conference. During the conference, a panel of highly respected dermatologists spoke about poor outcomes from resurfacing techniques. A resident came forward, sharing a recent complication he had with a standard laser procedure. The patient seemed like an ideal candidate. Blue eyes, blonde hair, fair skin. The procedure should have been a success but instead resulted in a second-degree burn. The same procedure had gone as planned with other candidates. So, what was different this time?

During his return flight to Los Angeles, Dr. Lancer thought about this situation and left the airport with a couple of ideas. Reaching out to the resident again, he asked if he had seen the patient’s family during the consultation. The resident said he did and mentioned that the family had an olive skin tone, which differed from his patient’s fair skin. This new information sparked an idea and led to the creation of the Lancer Ancestry Scale.

Using the theory that skins outward appearance can be deceiving, Dr. Lancer posits that a procedure or skincare regimen shouldn’t be recommended solely based off what one sees on the surface. It’s important to know the global ancestry of each patient to provide the most appropriate skincare regimen. With multigenerational ancestral background information, Dr. Lancer can determine which products will perform best for each patient. A skincare routine developed with the guidance of the Lancer Ancestry Scale may be extremely useful if complexion uniformity is the main issue, particularly in individuals with sensitive skin.

With Corrective Lightening Treatment and skincare regimen determined by the Lancer Ancestry Scale, you’ll have the recipe needed to gradually fade dark spots and get glowing skin. Make sure to acclimate your skin slowly when starting any new product. Use a small amount on the affected area once or twice a week to start off. You can begin to use the product twice daily after a few applications.

With a plan in place, we can’t forget sunscreen to keep our skin tone balanced and healthy for life. Sunscreen is key even on overcast days. It’s important to note that all sources of light can influence skin toxicity, so remember that skin protection is needed during all waking hours. If you can see your surroundings without artificial light, there’s enough light to speed up skin aging.

The Magic of Younger Revealing Mask Intense

I bet you have a million masks at home, but there’s nothing quite like this one. Dr. Lancer’s Younger Revealing Mask Intense is the next generation treatment mask that provides a unique experience for consumers while revealing younger, more radiant skin. What makes this mask so different? Well, instead of washing off the mask, it is removed with a specifically designed silver magnetic wand that gently pulls the mask’s content from the skin, leaving behind active ingredients that help to reduce the look of fine lines and wrinkles while accelerating cell turnover for younger-looking skin. The mask renews skin, working to improve the appearance of skin firmness and elasticity. Active ingredients also help to soften congested pores and re-regulate pore structure. This mask’s delivery system differs from any other mask and gives long-lasting anti-aging benefits for the face, neck, chest and body.

Dr. Lancer’s Younger Revealing Mask Intense comes with a set of 4 retinoid powered masks that contain a blend of Hydroxypinacolone Retinoate, Mineral Powder and Dimethicone. Hydroxypinacolone Retinoate is known to improve skin texture and tone while supporting collagen and cell turnover. Mineral powder is rich in iron and provides the source of ferromagnetic activity while Dimethicone provides emollience as it softens and moisturizes the skin. Younger Revealing Mask Intense comes with the magnetic wand and a small applicator to assist in the application process. Refills, as well as a trial size, are also available on

To apply the mask, use the applicator and spread the pod’s content evenly onto the face, neck and decollete. Dr. Lancer recommends leaving the mask on for 10-15 minutes, giving you just enough time to catch up on some emails or do a quick phone call with a friend. When it’s time to remove the mask, place the wand above the skins surface and watch as it gently lifts the mask off with its magnet, leaving those essential ingredients behind to work their magic. Remember, there’s no need to rinse since the magnetic wand removes the mask for you. Simply pat any residual product the tool may have missed into the skin. Pro-Tip! You can also wrap the magnetic wand with a tissue for less cleanup afterwards. The mask can be used once a week but patients may use it every other night if they wish.

As with all of our Advanced Treatments, it’s important to use the mask with the Lancer Method: Polish, Cleanse and Nourish to achieve the best results. The Younger Revealing Mask Intense is meant to be used within a system and is more effective when used with the Method.

Younger Revealing Mask intense is one of a kind, providing anti-aging benefits through a unique system. It’s exciting to see how it works from start to finish and we can’t wait for you to experience it for yourself.
