Targeted Treatments

4-Hexylresorcinol Lightening Gel

Hexylresorcinol provides antioxidant and skin protective benefits while minimizing photosensitivity and discolorations. It is an age-fighting agent that helps to prevent glycation (sallow, yellow skin) and encourages regeneration of the skin by stimulating cellular turnover as well as glutathione, a key component in tissues that strengthens collagen. Hexylresorcinol also promotes the appearance of even skin tone while reducing future discoloration. This makes 4-Hexylresorcinol Lightening Gel an excellent product for pre- and post-procedure regimens. Indicated for all skin types.

Pair with a vitamin C serum and sunscreen daily for maximum protection from photodamage. Recommend as part of a pre- and post-procedure regimen to minimize risk of post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation (PIH). Use as an alternative to hydroquinone therapy or when cycling off from hydroquinone.

Blemish Reducing Spot Treatment

This on-the-spot, overnight treatment features blemish fighting ingredients to rapidly reduce the severity and duration of a breakout. It will help to dry up excess oil and impurities to promote skin clarity by reducing redness and swelling. This will help to reduce post-acne discoloration, resulting in healthy, brighter-looking skin. This spot treatment can be used by anyone, from the occasional breakout due to  hormones or stress, to more frequent acne-prone or oily skin types. Indicated for use on all skin types. Do NOT use if allergic to sulfur.

DO NOT SHAKE the bottle; this treatment is formulated in an alcohol suspension so that the treatment ingredients settle to the bottom. Insert a clean cotton swab into the pink solution and dab onto blemishes.

Revitalizing Eye Cream

This Revitalizing Eye Cream is suitable for everyone to reduce the appearance of fine lines, puffiness, and dark circles. It contains antioxidants to help protect the eye area as it hydrates and brightens for an overall appearance of vibrant youthfulness in this delicate area.

This elegant formula has a unique texture that glides on effortlessly and helps to deflect light away to immediately give the appearance of a brighter eye area. For stubborn pigment or to reduce post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation around the eye area, try pairing this eye cream with 4-Hexylresorcinol Lightening Gel and/or Vitamin Rich Bruise Relief Cream.

Vitamin Rich Bruise Relief Cream with Arnica

This elegant cream leverages the power of vitamin K and arnica to reduce the appearance of redness and bruising following in-office procedures such as injectable services, vein treatments, microneedling, and resurfacing treatments.

Excellent to use prior to procedures as well as post-procedure to help to minimize possible bruising in patients that are prone to bruising and in areas of thin skin such as around the eyes and forehead. It has a unique cooling texture and feel to provide comfort to traumatized skin. Minimizing redness in the skin can also help to minimize the potential for post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation left on the skin post-procedure.
