skin care productsOur doctors have hand-picked some of the top skin care products available today including Riversol, SkinCeuticals and SwissTec. These high-quality skin care products meet a wide range of skin care needs from anti-aging to acne to rosacea.
Founded by our internationally-recognized dermatologist, Dr. Jason Rivers, these skin care products are from Vancouver. Riversol skin care delivers superior quality and proven results.
While searching for a skin care line for patients with extremely sensitive skin, Dr. Rivers became aware of thujaplicin, a potent anti-oxidant derived from the Pacific Red Cedar tree. Clinical studies had demonstrated thujaplicin to have anti-inflammatory, antibiotic, antifungal and healing properties – and very effective for rosacea and sensitive skin.
Riversol formulations combine thujaplicin with stabilized Vitamin C and Vitamin E; and contain no fragrances, dyes or sulphates. After using Riversol skin care products, patients with rosacea have experienced fewer or no flare-ups, while patients with anti-aging skin needs (sun damage, premature aging) have seen visible improvement over time.
SkinCeuticals produces advanced skin care products backed by scientific evidence. The company devotes countless resources toward research at major medical institutions to support the technology behind their products.
SkinCeuticals’ use of pharmaceutical-grade active, natural ingredients and the creation of several breakthrough products have earned the company a strong reputation in the global skin care product world.
SkinCeuticals’ product philosophy revolves around a skin care regime of preventing future damage, correcting previous damage and protecting healthy skin. A few of their revolutionary skin care products include a transparent zinc oxide sunscreen with a matte finish and topical Vitamin C formulations or serums.

Oxygenetix Breathable Foundation
This cosmetic breakthrough product is a high-quality foundation that not only provides great coverage but also helps the skin heal and can minimize scarring. It has the ability to conceal a wide variety of skin issues such as acne scars, rosacea, rashes, dryness and skin injuries.
Oxygenetix is called "breathable" and "healing" foundation because it's infused with ceravitae, an oxygen complex, which is proven to increase the skin's oxygen uptake while stimulating collagen cell production and connective tissue growth.
To make this product even more impressive, Oxygenetix provides complete coverage with a light formula that looks natural, not cakey. In addition to being non-comedogenic and water-resistant, it contains broad spectrum sunscreen with SPF 25 and provides 24-hour hydration.
Colorescience Mineral Makeup
This line of high performance cosmetics enhances your skin tone while allowing your natural radiance to shine through. The color saturation of these minerals is remarkable. Colorescience offers post-procedure protocols to shorten the downtime usually necessary with many treatments, especially peels, lasers and other aggressive skin regimes.
One of their more popular products, Sunforgettable, is protective mineral face colour with SPF 20 or 30 to shield your skin from the sun’s harmful rays and help prevent skin damage, freckling and uneven coloration.
