Hyperpigmentation and Fresh, Glowing Skin

Published February 12, 2013 1:12 PM by Kimberly Cray

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 skin.
