Mineral Based Makeup

Cosmetic Club Banner for Center for Dermatology

Many women wear makeup as a way to even out the skin and provide a healthy, natural glow. The problem is that many types of makeup can lead to allergic reactions, breakouts, or chronic skin conditions. Attempting to deal with the consequences of makeup with more makeup, or a switch to another brand of commercial makeup, could simply perpetuate the problem.

U.S. Dermatology Partners Plano, formerly the Center for Dermatology and Cosmetic Laser Surgery is a practice that believes you should be able to enhance not only the look of your skin, but also its natural state. It is for this reason that we carry a selection of Jane Iredale mineral makeup. This line of makeup products has a large span, with every powder acting as not only a foundation but also a loose powder, concealer, and sunscreen all wrapped up into an easy to use product.

Some of the key points to mineral based makeup include:

  • Skin enhancement and nourishment in one.
  • Pure mineral pigments mean no talc or other fillers.
  • Mineral based concealers and foundations provide superior, long-lasting coverage.
  • High-quality minerals in makeup create a soft-focus effect by interacting wonderfully with light. The line of mineral-based powders we carry ranges from sheer and luminescent to full and velvety in finish.
  • Light and airy, mineral foundations allow the skin to breathe as it should, maintaining open pores and clear skin.
  • Mineral based makeup is non-comedogenic.
  • Binding together on the skin, minerals will resist smearing, creasing, and running.
  • Mineral powders are easily removed with gentle soap and water. These products have been extensively tested to ensure they do not lead to sensitivity or irritation. In fact, anti-irritants are included in these mineral products so as to enhance the health of the skin as well as its appearance.
  • Natural preservatives are used where necessary. No phenoxyethanol or parabens.

Mineral based makeup is not a fad, it is the new way of enhancing skin for those who are serious about skin care.

Some of the products you will find at U.S. Dermatology Partners Plano, formerly the Center for Dermatology and Cosmetic Laser Surgery, include:

  • Elta MD
  • Obagi
  • La Roche-Posay
  • CeraVe
  • Clarisonic
  • Revisions
  • Latisse
  • Jane Iredale mineral makeup


The product line of EltaMD is designed for maximum efficiency in skin care for people of all ages and skin types, based on the theory that sun protection is an essential practice for everyone. The broad-spectrum formulas are specially formulated using Z-cote, one of the most durable forms of zinc oxide. With this special formulation, and SPF ratings from 30-50, comes advanced, broad-spectrum protection from both UVA and UVB rays. Products from EltaMD are light and creamy, as well as non-comedogenic. Your skin will feel smooth and healthy with these moisturizing creams and lotions.


These innovative products for excellent skin care have been developed by dermatologists to deliver nourishing, silkening ingredients for beautiful skin. Skin-enhancing ingredients are combined with the patented Multivesicular Emulsion delivery system for the optimal repair and rebuilding of the skin barrier. This patented technology aids the delivery of essential nutrients deep within the top layer of the skin, slowly over the course of the day, for maximum efficacy. It is through this method of delivery that the skin barrier is repaired, and the lipid bilayer rebuilt for truly healthy skin.

Revision Skincare

Revision Skincare products are some of the best available today; they are designed through constant improvement and scientifically advanced technology. The cleansers, eye care, moisturizers, toners, sun care, anti-aging masks, and hand and body care are suitable for all skin types. Revision products can improve various skin conditions, including aging, dark circles, acne, and poor texture or tone.


Latisse is a specialized product designed to improve the appearance of your lashes. Growing lush, gorgeous lashes takes time. With daily application of LATISSE™, based on 0.03% bimatoprost ophthalmic solution, the lashes gradually become fuller, darker, longer, and more noticeable. LATISSE™ works systemically, so results are gradual. Within about four weeks, you will begin to see a glimpse of your best lashes, with full results typically in 16 weeks. Regular use of this topical solution is necessary for ongoing results.

Clarisonic Pro Skin Brush

From the creators of Sonicare®, the Clarisonic brush is an essential component of any excellent skincare routine. Face washing is often something we do without putting much thought into it. In many instances, cleaning the face with mild soap and only the hands or a washcloth, is ineffective. Dirt and oil can be left behind to collect in fine lines and pores.

Our skin is affected by the sun, environmental pollutants, natural oils, and bacteria. The Clarisonic results in 6x more removal of makeup, dirt, and oil, enabling you to notice improved skin tone, reduced pores, and softened lines and wrinkles. The clean skin that comes from Clarisonic is also better able to absorb skin care products, so you can enjoy your most beautiful skin.

If you live in Dallas or the surrounding areas of McKinney, Richardson, Frisco, Carlton, Arlington, or Louisville, U.S. Dermatology Partners is within convenient distance to receive the kind of skin care you deserve.
