From the makers of the #1 selling Family of Fillers


JUVEDERM VOLUMA XC is the first and only FDA-approved filler to instantly add volume to the cheek area in people over the age of 21.  It works instantly to add volume and subtly lift the cheek area, temporarily reversing the sign of aging.

  • Gives subtle lift
  • Helps restore contour for up to 2 years
  • Look up to 5 years younger
  • Nonsurgical
  • Contains a modified hyaluronic acid (HA), derived from a naturally occurring complex sugar

Is volume loss in the cheeks making you look older?

Wrinkles are only part of the aging equation.

Volume loss in the cheeks is a major reason we lose that youthful profile over the years.


In the clinical study, people perceived themselves to look 5 years younger 6 months after treatment, and 3 years younger 24 months after treatment.  The average volume injected during the clinical study was 6.8 ml to achieve optimal correction for the cheek area.

NIA24 Niacin-Powered Skin Therapy

May 2nd, 2013

NIA24 products were extensively tested for skin compatibility, allergic responses, efficacy and were also proven to be non-comedogenic.  Niacin increases circulation to help generate more vital cellular regeneration.  You may feel a warmth or blush upon first application.  This is proof that Pro-Niacin is hard at work to help stimulate natural repair processes to healthy skin cells, energize skin to promote healthy skin function and a more vital appearance, and  to strengthen the skin barrier for overall resilience and improve damage resistance.  As your skin barrier increases, absorption will stabilize and blushing subside.

By stimulating skin’s natural barrier function, NIA24 builds stronger, better skin that’s more resilient and resistant to damage.  By improving the skin’s barrier function, overall skin tone and texture improve.  NIA24 reduces the appearance of visible brown spots, hyperpigmentation and lines specifically associated with sun damage.  Without it, skin falls prey to daily sun and environmental stresses that slow skin’s self-protective function and speed the visible signs of aging. 

This special form of Pro-Niacin delivers immediate and residual benefits, as well  as continuous dermal delivery of Niacin without vasodialation and photosensitivity.

Physical Cleansing Scrub

This all in one cleansing scrub gently removes dead skin cells.  Pro-Niasomes, which are spherical Jojoba Beads infused with Pro-Niacin, help wash away skin’s visible imperfactions.




Eye Repair Cream

This ultra-rich eye cream quickly penetrates to deliver critical anti-aging, firming and brightening actions to the total eye area.  Correct today’s imperfections from darkness to puffiness to lines – while fighting future damage.  Formulated with patented and clinically proven Pro-Niacin that stimulates the natural repair process and builds the delicate skin barrier around the eye.

Skin Strengthening Complex

Neither heavy nor too light, this fortified cream visibly reduces the apperance of fine lines and wrinkles by enhancing the skin’s barrier function, accelerating repair and delivering continual moisturization.

April 24th, 2013

We are now carring a new product for all the women that have fine lines, wrinkles, pigmentation, and for a post-procedure skincare regimen.  This system is easy to use and gentle on the skin.  As we age, and with exposure to the sun, collagen and elastin breaks down causing our skin to look less firm and more wrinkled.  Sun exposure and aging can also cause dark spots to the skin, making our skin look less even and a more aged look. 

To prevent future signs of aging every woman should have a skincare regimen that helps stimulate and rejuvinte the skin to give it a more even, youthful, vibrant look.  Vivatia has been designed to solve this problem.  It is the only system that uses a proprietary foam delivery system, that delivers higher, more effective levels of anti-aging ingredients gently to the skin.  Ingredients like retinol, hydroquinone, vitamin c, antioxidants and peptides.  This system is designed to be easy to use and gentle on the skin. 

Vivatia is an effective 3-piece system:

  • Gentle Cream Cleanser- hydrating formula that gently cleanses away impurities
  • Active Repair Complex- unique retinol formula with peptide, vitamins and antioxidants helps reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles for more radiant, younger-looking skin
  • Brightening Complex- combines 10 powerful brightening ingredients to help even skin tone and fade dark spots





Relastin Eye Silk  is a breakthrough technology that is clinically proven to visibly improve sksin firmness, elasticity, and improve dark circles and puffiness.  It is the only product with proprietary Zinc Firming Complex that can deliver firmer-looking skin. 

Eye Silk delivers firmer looking skin through a unique texture that lives up to its name- it is a silky formula unlike any other eye cream you’ve tried before.  It feels great and really works.  It is gentle enough to use under the eyes and on eye lids.  In fact, Relastin Eye Silk was the winner of Allure’s Best of  Beauty Award for best eye cream 4 years in a row.

Sun exposure, cigarette smoke, and stress can all deplete the skin of its elastin.  Elastin is a protein in your skin that makes it smooth again after contracting and stretching.  Your skin virtually stops producing elastin in adolescence; and, as you age, your skin becomes less capable of springing back after stretching.  This causes fine lines and wrinkles to form around the eye area.

 Why It’s Unique

  • The only product that uses the patented Zinc Firming Comples, clinically proven to visibly firm and tighten skin
  • Delivers real, visible results in just 2-4 weeks
  • Delivered in a silky formula you’ll love – great under eyes and on eye lids

Why you’ll love it

Women who tried Relastin saw the following in 2-4 weeks:

  • 84% noticed visible resutls
  • 80% saw diminished fine lines and wrinkles
  • 74% noticed a decreased in dark circles
  • 69% saw reduced under eye puffiness
