Dr. Christopher Zoumalan

We heal scars and hyperpigmentation better than them, and here's why.

The Skinuva line of Growth Factor-based products was founded by Dr. Christopher Zoumalan, a Board-Certified Ophthalmic Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeon. Inspired by his passion for science and medicine, he dedicated the past several years researching wound-healing, hyperpigmentation and other skin issues and developing the most advanced skin care products to his colleagues and patients.

Unmet need in current topical scar therapy

Although there has been major medical advancements in surgical procedures to minimize scarring, patients are still faced with concerns of visible scars that remain post-surgery.

Since the introduction of silicone cream in the late 1990's there has been limited advancements in the topical scar therapy industry. Pertaining to the stagnate progress, Dr. Zoumalan and his team of scientists implemented medical literature and clinical data within their product development.

Patience in research and formulation were keys to success for Skinuva® Scar

Selective ingredients such as specific Growth Factors were integrated within the formulation of Skinuva® Scar to create what is now recognized as- one of the most advanced topical scar creams. Skinuva® Scar is the first and only scar cream in the industry that uses selective Growth Factors in its formulation.

Scarless healing in fetuses: This knowledge was crucial in the development of Skinuva® Scar

Scar free healing in fetuses occurs due to a complex upregulation and downregulation of certain growth factors. By utilizing such knowledge, Skinuva's team of scientists, clinicians, stem cell experts, and chemists formulated its first product in its Growth Factor Pipeline: Skinuva® Scar.

Skinuva® Brite: Consumer push for safe and effective non-hydroquinone (HQ) topical products

Consumers have long wanted a safe and effective non-hydroquinone (HQ) product to help improve their hyperpigmentation. Hydroquinone and other skin brighteners that perhaps include retinol and other potentially irritating ingredients may be associated with irritation, dermatitis, and non-compliance. Skinuva® Brite is a non-HQ Growth Factor-based product along with Tranexamic Acid, Arbutin, Vitamin C, and Niacinimide (Vitamin B3) that has been shown to be nearly 30% more effective in improving hyperpigmentation than HQ 4% in our recent head-to-head clinical trial. Skinuva® Brite is also well tolerated with minimal irritation and redness.

Patience in research and formulation were keys to success for Skinuva® Brite

Using similar research methodology, medical literature and clinical data, Skinuva’s team of doctors and scientists were able to develop and clinically evaluate Skinuva Brite. Skinuva® Brite is a revolutionary Growth-Factor based product that integrates selective ingredients to create what is now regarded as one of the most advanced topical creams for hyperpigmentation.
