Medical Grade Skin care is an important component of VIVAA's aesthetic care. Our staff strongly believes in a good skin care regimen. Dr. Sidhu's philosopy is "No matter how good are the techniques to relax the muscle (botox), stimulate collagen (ultherapy), replenish volume loss (dermal fillers) or laser skin treatments, if the skin is not addressed with good skin care products all the hard work below the skin level is wasted."
VIVAA provides top quality skin treatment for you with PCA Skin and EltaMD Skin Care
PCA Skin Care
For more than 25 years, PCA SKIN has been an innovator in the development of exceptional skin care. Founded by an aesthetician with products developed by a dermatologist, PCA strives to produce constant product innovation, excellent patient education and unparalleled customer support.
Formulating quality skin care products is the mission of PCA SKIN. The company improved the popular Jessner peel by enhancing the capabilities of this medium peel that helps remove dead skin cells from the outermost layer of skin to reveal new, healthier skin underneath. Reformulation of the peel allowed for safer application, more comfortable treatment and additional post-procedure benefits. Annually, more than one million PCA skin peels are performed worldwide. In addition to PCA’s line of blended chemical peels, the company has formulated solution for many different conditions and skin types.
The PCA SKIN R&D, product development and quality assurance processes are above and beyond industry standards. Their formulas are researched, designed and executed by an in-house PhD chemist. They address each skin condition holistically, with products combining the newest and most efficacious ingredients paired with proven, tried and true ingredients to create unparalleled, visible results. We have a solution to address a wide variety of skin types and conditions.
PCA believes that everyone deserves to have naturally radiant skin. That's why they've dedicated years of research to formulating advanced skin care products that rejuvenate skin. The science of skin inspires their product line. As skin ages, elasticity decreases, lines appear and overall appearance is diminished. These skin care products contain specialty ingredients that improve skin’s overall appearance.
EltaMD Aesthetic Procedure Skin Care
Healthy Skin Starts Here
EltaMD skincare product line includes deep yet gentle cleansers, intense moisturizers and innovative formulas that repair the visible signs of aging.
EltaMD® is widely recognized as the leading brand of physician-dispensed sunscreens in the U.S. For more than 25 years the company has also developed and manufactured wound care and skin care products trusted by burn centers and hospitals. Today the EltaMD Aesthetic Procedure Skin Care line brings together our expertise in wound care, skin care and sun care products.
EltaMD products prepare skin for treatment and help skin transition safely and efficiently through the phases of wound healing. They readily complement physicians’ established pre and post treatment regimens.
Most complications after aesthetic treatments result from improper skin care. To help ensure optimal outcomes, EltaMD products support these three essential steps of aesthetic procedure skin care:
Cleanse: Treated skin must be kept clean and secretions and debris removed.
Moisturize: Treated skin must be kept moist.
Protect: Skin must be protected by a broad-spectrum sunscreen before and after procedures. An antimicrobial can help prevent or treat infection.
EltaMD Medical Heritage
For more than 25 years, EltaMD has developed wound healing, sunscreens and skin care products that are widely used and recommended by physicians and other medical professionals in hospitals, burn centers, rehabilitation clinics, and long-term and short-term care centers. EltaMD applies that experience to create innovative products that help restore, protect and maintain healthy skin.
How EltaMD Sunscreens Work
EltaMD broad-spectrum sunscreens provide safe, broad-spectrum ultraviolet (UV) protection. A broad-spectrum sunscreen helps prevent sunburn and if used as directed with other sun protection measures, decreases the risk of skin cancer and early skin aging caused by the sun. Ultraviolet, or UV rays, are part of the invisible energy that comes from the sun. UVA (aging) rays account for 95% of our sun exposure. They cause skin aging and contribute to skin cancer. UVA rays penetrate deeply into the skin layers, damaging collagen and cells which leads to wrinkling, hyperpigmentation and loss of elasticity.
UVB (burning) rays mostly affect the outer layer of the skin. They cause sunburns and tanning that increase the risk of skin cancer and other disorders. The risk for skin cancer doubles in people who have had five or more sunburns. Skin Cancer Foundation (Nov. 2010).
When wearing EltaMD sunscreens, the UVA and UVB rays reflect and scatter away from your skin, providing you protection from sunburn. EltaMD sunscreens help prevent sunburn and, if used as directed with other sun protection measures, decrease the risk of skin cancer and early skin aging caused by the sun.
Think Zinc for Serious UV Protection
All EltaMD sunscreens are formulated with zinc oxide, a natural, mineral compound. Because zinc maintains its protective ability in the sun, it is more photostable than some chemical ingredients that may degrade. Zinc sunscreen blocks the widest spectrum of UVA and UVB rays, protecting skin against burning and the premature appearance of aging and risk of skin cancer. Zinc is safe for even the most sensitive skin types.
What Makes EltaMD Moisturizers Different?
Our experience is rooted in formulating products that address critical skin care problems. It is our medical heritage that differentiates EltaMD skin care products. For more than two decades, our company has formulated moisturization products for wound and skin treatment in hospitals, burn centers and acute care facilities.
Three Steps to Healthy Skin
CLEANSE with a pH-balanced cleanser that doesn't contain ingredients like AHAs or glycolic acids that may irritate sensitive skin.
MOISTURIZE after bathing and again as needed to help retain moisture in skin.
PROTECT with a broad-spectrum sunscreen that protects the skin from exposure to both UVA and UVB rays.
VIVAA stocks PCA SKIN Care products in four different categories: cleanse and prepare, correct and boost, renew and fortify and protect and prevent.
