Hyperpigmentation and Fresh, Glowing Skin
Vivatia is an advanced skin care system offering
patients undeniable results. This system is a new take on anti-aging skin care,
focusing on safe and effective delivery of key ingredients such as
anti-oxidants and hydroquinone.
Vivatia consists of 3 steps:
Gentle Cream Cleanser - A non-foaming cream cleanser that is hydrating while it
cleanses to remove impurities. It is specially designed for use with
high-potency retinoid therapy that we all know causes cell turnover (peeling) and
in patients' eyes "dryness." To calm the skin this cleanser contains
green tea, aloe vera and chamomile.
Active Repair Complex - A unique retinol formula with peptides, vitamins and
antioxidants which help to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles for
more radiant, younger-looking skin. This product is available in 0.5%, 0.75%,
1.0% pure retinol concentrations. It is recommended that patients start at 0.5%
and work up.
Brightening Coplex - This formulation combines 10 powerful brightening agents to
help even skin tone and fade dark spots. Included in this complex is 2%
hydroquinone, as well as niacinamide, whitonyl (palmaria palamata extract),
kojic acid, licorice root and arbutin.
How is Vivatia different from other anti-aging
products? Well for starters, Vivatia utilizes the proprietary foam
delivery of retinol - making the product "tough on aging" yet "gentle on
skin." Unlike some harsh products that make patients red and have unwanted
peeling, this system does the job with little irritation.
I love this because patients will really see
results with minimal redness or peeling that interferes with their busy life
style. We also love that with proper sun protection, this product is safe
for those who enjoy outdoor activities. Also, this product contains a
formulation of low dose hydroquinone (2%) that is safe to use year round.
I am a firm believer in treatment options for
patients. Many have tried everything
and they will come to you
wanting something new and improved.
In my opinion this is a
great topical treatment. I always encourage patients to understand that proper
skin care is not just achieved by a peel or laser treatment (especially for stubborn
conditions like melasma). While in-office treatments can greatly
enhance home care, using the right products consistently at home is a necessity
for glowing, happy
