Dr. Suzman Created DNA Repair Complex Out Of Frustration With Today's Scar Products
Dr. Suzman listened attentively for years to patients who were disappointed with the lack of efficacious or innovative solutions to help them get rid of their scars and skin damage - and he decided to do something about it.
Over years he carefully formulated the latest ingredients and science together to develop a topical treatment to help improve the appearance of specific types of skin damage — the visibility of burn marks and scars — and Dr. Suzman's patients loved it.
In an independent study of this formula:
+ 88% agreed it helped reduce scar discoloration
+ 84% agreed it helped reduce the texture and appearance of their scar
+ 100% agreed it is more effective than the leading scar brand
The Science Behind Skin Damage
The science supporting DNA Repair Complex works with all visible skin damage and corrects problems at the source.
External stressors like UV exposure and pollution, injuries (such as burns or acne scarring), and surgical incisions are just a handful of factors that lead to skin damage. Whenever you see skin damage and imperfections, it’s because of mistakes made during the skin DNA replication process.
DNA Repair with Lapachol
Our proprietary ingredient, lapachol, targets skin damage at the DNA level.
When external stressors damage healthy skin DNA, the body triggers the DNA replication process by sending signals to certain proteins, including CUL4A. CUL4A works quickly to replicate DNA — too quickly, as the protein often makes mistakes, which manifest as visible skin damage.
Lapachol helps slow the function of CUL4A, making it work smarter and reducing DNA replication errors. By decelerating CUL4A, lapachol helps your DNA create better-looking skin.
Breakthrough Lapachol Technology That's 1000+ Years Old
Lapachol is a compound found in the bark of the pau d’arco tree, which has been used for centuries as a homeopathic remedy throughout Central and South America. Often taken orally as a supplement or as a tea, pau d’arco is frequently used to help fight the common cold and other viruses, reduce inflammation throughout the body, and treat conditions like diabetes, asthma, wounds, and more.
RescueMD is the only skincare brand to use patented lapachol powered by pau d'arco.
Skin Strengthening from Peptides
Peptides are the building blocks of collagen, part of the skin's structural support system. Over time, our collagen depletes, resulting in sagging skin, fine lines, and wrinkles. Our bespoke blend of peptides help trigger new collagen production, counteracting signs of aging for skin that looks firmer, smoother, and more youthful.
In a clinical study, the peptides in RescueMD Skin DNA Repair Complex were shown to:
+ Increase collagen synthesis by up to 117%
+ Reduce the “footprint” of deep wrinkles by 68%
Soothing Support from Botanicals
Inflammation-induced aging exhausts your skin. Our powerhouse plants — black currant, rosehip, and sunflower seed oils, plus rosemary and balloon vine extracts — are packed with anti-inflammatory and antioxidant benefits to help soothe, reduce redness, and support the skin’s moisture barrier while defending against future damage.
Silky Skin Finish from Moisturizers
Moisture has been shown to help speed up skin recovery and promote skin elasticity. We’ve formulated moisturizing, medical-grade skin protectant dimethicone, a type of silicone, into our topical treatment to help fade the look of scars and other damage for more radiant, healthier-looking skin. Allantoin, an ingredient commonly derived from the comfrey plant, also works to seal in hydration while acting as a skin protectant (without congesting pores).
Enhanced Efficacy from Product Packaging
When skin creams and serums are exposed to air and light, the product’s ingredients break down faster, making your treatment less powerful over time. RescueMD uses airless, opaque packaging to maintain the integrity of our potent yet gentle ingredients.
