Summer 2022 will see the addition of three new products to the Vivacy Beauty skincare portfolio. AQUA LISS’®, Vivacy’s new sheet mask, can be used in clinics after STYLAGE® Hydro, HydraFacial, LED, and superficial peels, as well as a hydration and radiance treatment from home. HYDRAPLUS®, is a concentrated hydrating serum that helps prevent the early signs of ageing. Finally, URBAN RESIST® is the perfect lightweight moisturiser for those whose skin is subject to the aggressions of daily life such as pollution, blue screen light, sun damage, carbon particles.


ZO Skin Health’s new 10% Vitamin C Self-Activating features a potent dose of vitamin C that helps to brighten and redefine the skin, while promoting a more even skin tone and minimising the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

Alongside helping to restore and support the skin’s natural barrier, the waterfree formula includes powerful antioxidants that help defend against environmental triggers.

Surface discolouration is also removed through exfoliation to reveal a radiant, more even skin tone.


SkinCeuticals has launched Oil Shield UV Defense SPF50, a lightweight, residue-free formula, which contains broad spectrum UV protection with mattifying properties to reduce oiliness.

SkinCeuticals market research showed patients with oilier skin avoid daily SPF application as products add to the greasy feeling on their faces. Oil Shield UV Defense SPF50 was developed with this insight in mind. This invisible oil-absorbing formula provides high protection with a comfortable dry-touch finish. It also combines mineral and chemical fillers for high protection.

3D Aesthetics and Dermalux

3D Aesthetics has joined forces with LED device brand Dermalux to create a new powerful combination of treatments.

The Dermalux Flex MD is a professional, portable LED device, offering clinically proven results. It works by channelling safe and effective LED energy into the skin’s layers to rejuvenate cells, treat signs of ageing and acne, improve overall skin health, and relieve muscular and joint pain. This complements other 3D devices such as 3D Dermaforce or 3D HydrO2 facial, creating an upgrade opportunity for many clinics.

Harpar Grace

Aesthetic distributor Harpar Grace has shared the results of its latest clinical study for leading US cosmeceutical brand iS Clinical. The study evaluated the benefits of the iS Clinical Active Peel System in improving the skin. 30 female subjects between the ages of 37-64 years of age used the two-step Active Peel System for eight weeks. After two weeks, 83% said that it improved skin smoothness and 70% said it reduced oily skin and large pore size. After four weeks, 70% of the women who participated in the study said their skin looked better than before. At the end of the study, 80% said that their skin texture improved and skin had a better and healthier colour.
