The MLA Skincare Product Line

Dr. Mary Lee Amerian is proud to announce that her complete MLA Skincare line is now available. The MLA Skincare line consists of a rich assortment of products that are designed to work together to provide your skin with exceptional rejuvenation, protection, and prevention. Formulated for use on all skin types, the products are lightweight, rapidly absorbed, and layerable.


MLA Skincare has developed unique products designed to treat specific changes that occur in the skin, including fine lines, wrinkles, redness, brown spots, eyelid puffiness, and dark under-eye circles. This allows the formulations to be optimized for maximum benefit. In addition, products can be selected for use based on each person’s individual needs.


Dr. Amerian says, “My goal was to create a skin care line that effectively improves the appearance of aging skin and keeps younger skin looking healthy and beautiful. In addition, I wanted the products to be gentle enough for use on all skin types, even the most sensitive.” Dr. Amerian calls this synthesis “Powerful Yet Gentle™” and she incorporates it into the design of every MLA Skincare product.


MLA Skincare products are formulated with the most outstanding skin care ingredients available today. Every ingredient selected for use is carefully chosen based upon scientific evidence of unsurpassed effectiveness, safety, and purity. In addition, ingredients that have even a remote potential for toxicity or are unusually harsh, such as glycolic acid and hydroquinone, are specifically excluded from the formulations. In their place, multiple active ingredients are combined in order to enhance the effectiveness of each of the products! As a result, the MLA Skincare line is not only unmatched in its quality but is also gentle on the skin.


The Perfect 9 Complex

At the heart of every MLA Skincare product is the Perfect 9 Complex™, a proprietary formulation of 9 highly effective ingredients, including peptides, ceramides, and antioxidants, plus botanicals, vitamins, and conditioners. These ingredients were carefully chosen for their anti-aging and soothing effects.


The anti-aging ingredients in Perfect 9 Complex reduce the appearance of fine lines, even skin tone, support the skin barrier function, and help preserve the collagen and elastin in the skin. At the same time, the soothing ingredients moisturize the skin and provide antioxidants and anti-irritants to protect and calm the skin. Together, these 9 unique ingredients help the skin look more youthful, refreshed, and rejuvenated.


Every MLA product combines the anti-aging and soothing ingredients in the Perfect 9 Complex with a unique blend of additional ingredients carefully selected to target specific needs. Thus, an especially large number of active ingredients are used in each of the formulations! This results in MLA Skincare products being highly effective in improving the health and beauty of your skin.

“Mary Lee Amerian’s new skin care line is fabulous. Recently, I finished three weeks of filming a show and found my skin to be tired and dull looking. After two days of using MLA Skincare products, I felt the glow return. The products made my skin feel clean and firm. Now, Dr. Amerian can reach out to others with her new skin care line, which I highly recommend!”

MLA Skincare Product Evaluation

MLA Skincare products were tested for anti-aging efficacy by an independent testing laboratory in a twelve-week single blind randomized controlled clinical study involving sixty-eight patients*. 87% of the users of the products reported improvement in skin texture, tone, dryness, and under-eye circles. There was also statistically significant improvement in fine lines, skin elasticity, skin color, redness, age spots, and under eye puffiness. The visible signs of aging skin were significantly improved after the use of MLA Skincare products.


In summary, the study demonstrated the following benefits of MLA Skincare products:

  • Improvement in fine lines and wrinkles

Introducing LATISSE –

The New Way of Growing Longer, Thicker, and Darker Eyelashes


The Santa Monica Laser and Skincare Center is proud to make available to our patients Latisse, a new prescription treatment for growing longer, thicker, and darker eyelashes. Latisse is the first and only FDA approved treatment for people with inadequate or insufficient eyelashes. Its use has been clinically demonstrated to result in longer and more luxurious eyelashes.


Latisse is believed to work by extending the length of time that eyelash hairs stay in the growth phase and by increasing the number of eyelash hairs that are in the growth phase. This means that as your existing eyelash hairs are replaced with new eyelash hairs, the new hairs will be thicker, darker, and longer. However, Latisse will not affect the appearance of your existing eyelash hairs. (You may continue to use mascara in addition to Latisse solution until your new thicker and more luxurious eyelashes grow out.)


Visible improvement in the appearance of the eyelashes will occur gradually. In the clinical trial leading to FDA approval, the majority of Latisse users saw a significant improvement within two months, with the optimum improvement occurring after four months of use.


Using Latisse is quite easy. Each night, after removing make-up, taking out any contact lenses, and washing your face, simply place one drop of Latisse solution on the enclosed sterile applicator. Then draw the applicator carefully across the skin of the upper eyelid where the eyelashes meet the skin. Pass the applicator from the inner part of your lash line to the outer part, then blot any excess solution beyond the eyelid margin. Repeat for the opposite side. Use one sterile applicator for each eye. Each Latisse kit includes 60 sterile applicators, enough to last for one month. Latisse should not be applied to the lower eyelid or to the eye itself.


The Latisse website ( has additional information about Latisse, including before and after photographs and a demonstration of the technique of applying Latisse.


Any of our patients who would like to try Latisse in order to grow more luxurious eyelashes are invited to call 310-829-9396 for an appointment. Because we are so excited about this new treatment we are happy to make available to our patients the following special offer.
