SkinMedica Total Defense + Repair Review

SkinMedica Total Defense + Repair is a revolutionary superscreen that goes beyond UV protection to defend against harmful infrared rays while rejuvenating your skin. This total defense and repair Broad Spectrum Sunscreen with an SPF 34 is perfect for daily use. And it’s safe for all skin types.

If you want to prevent the appearance of premature aging from chronic exposure to the sun’s harmful UVA and UVB rays, SkinMedica Total Defense + Repair provides comprehensive protection while supporting your skin’s ability to restore itself.



Here at the National Laser Institute Med Spa, we love this product because it absorbs easily and does not leave a white residue.  It spreads evenly and doesn’t feel greasy. And, it will improve the overall health and appearance of your skin making it firm, tight, and taut.

SkinMedica Total Defense + Repair offers better protection than a traditional sunscreen with a really high SPF. Just because a product has a high SPF it 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 SkinMedica Total Defense + Repair apart is the SOL-IR™ Advanced Antioxidant Complex. This trifecta of potent antioxidants is what enables SkinMedica Total Defense + Repair to protect against IR-A and help rejuvenate your skin.


It’s best to apply SkinMedica Total Defense + Repair in the morning, as the last product in your skincare routine. You should apply it to your entire face and other sun-exposed areas. Apply liberally 15 minutes before sun exposure. Reapply as needed or after towel drying, swimming, or perspiring. 

SkinMedica Total Defense + Repair works beautifully with SkinMedica TNS Essential Serum®. TNS Essential Serum® is comprised of a proprietary growth factor blend. These growth factors are very important for skin 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 beautifully.

SkinMedica Total Defense + Repair also works with the SkinMedica Vitamin C + E Complex. Both products include powerful antioxidants, but the blends are very different and are designed to work in different ways to support the skin. SkinMedica Total Defense + Repair can be used during the day for solar protection with antioxidant benefits, and SkinMedica Vitamin C + E Complex can be used at night to assist in rejuvenation processes.

SkinMedica Total Defense + Repair is more than a sunscreen; it’s a rejuvenating superscreen, powered by SOL-IR™ Advanced Antioxidant Complex to help rejuvenate skin and improve the overall appearance of your skin.
