Advertorial: Introducing the Latest Innovation from SkinCeuticals

04 Feb 2022

A science-based approach to improving radiance, texture, and clarity to help correct out-of-balance skin

The newest member of the Phyto family, Phyto A+ Brightening Treatment, is a lightweight moisturiser that soothes inflammation and corrects hyperpigmentation for a brighter complexion.

Patients in search of brighter skin can face challenging obstacles when using ingredients such as acids, hydroquinone and retinols, as for some they can create secondary skin concerns such as visible redness, post-inflammatory discolouration and blemishes. Not all skin types can tolerate these ingredients and therefore patient noncompliance is not uncommon and can result in dissatisfaction with results. By tackling and modulating three key common skin complaints; dullness, rough texture and visible redness, patients can achieve bright, smooth and clear skin. SkinCeuticals Phyto A+ Brightening Treatment is a silicon-free and noncomedogenic formulation containing:

  • 2% ALPHA ARBUTIN – helping to even skin tone and reduce pigment production
  • 3% AZELAIC ACID – improves cell turnover and balances oil production, resulting in smoother skin
  • 5.75% PHYTO BOTANICAL BLEND – modulates inflammation to calm and soothe the skin

Phyto A+ Brightening Treatment helps in the following three key areas:

  • Lack of cell turnover which causes dullness, visible pores and imperfections
  • Inflammation that gives a visible redness in the skin
  • Excess melanin production which contributes to an uneven skin tone

Dermatologist Professor Firas Al-Niaimi commented, “Until now, for most patients our approach as dermatologists has been to improve the look of the skin using ingredients and treatments available to us that exfoliate the skin on the face and we use products with high levels of actives to do so, some of which can cause mild irritation. It is true to say that not all patients are able to or wish to tolerate dryness or redness that retinoids, for example, can cause. It is good to have an alternative that addresses the three main contributing factors to dull skin without clogging pores or introducing unnecessary ingredients to the skin.”

Product results

After a 12-week clinical trial, Phyto+ Brightening Treatment is proven to:

  • Brighten – reducing post blemish marks by 20%*
  • Smooth – improving rough skin texture by 19% *
  • Clarify – reducing pore clogging surface oil by 28%*

By modulating the three skin pathways to brighter skin; dullness, inflammation and pigmentation, patients can receive clinically proven results without irritating the skin.
