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 has dedicated the past several years researching wound-healing, hyperpigmentation and other skin issues to develop the most advanced skin care products for his patients, colleagues and others.
We help improve the appearance of scars and hyperpigmentation, and here's why.
Unmet need in current topical scar therapy
Although there have 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 scar products in the late 1990's there have been limited advancements in the topical scar therapy industry. Dr. Zoumalan and his team of scientists reviewed all the latest advancements in wound healing and incorporated the science from medical literature and clinical studies into developing his new products.
Patience in research and formulation were keys to success for Skinuva Scar
Specific ingredients such as selective synthetic Growth Factors were incorporated into the proprietary 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 to use selective Growth Factors in its formulation in addition to silicone and other clinically proven ingredients.
Scarless healing in fetuses: This knowledge was crucial in the development of Skinuva Scar
Fetal scarless healing is widely published and 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 were able to formulate their first product in the Growth Factor pipeline: Skinuva Scar.
Skinuva Brite: Consumers 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 inflammation, dermatitis, and non-compliance. Skinuva Brite is a non-HQ Growth Factor-based product that includes 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 the research and development of the formulation were key to success for Skinuva Brite
Utilizing the same rigorous methodology of medical literature and clinical data, Skinuva’s team of doctors and scientists were able to develop a unique and patented formula to meet the unmet need for a safe and effective non-hydroquinone topical product. 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.
Skinuva Bruise: Physician developed, homeopathic Arnica supplement for pre and post procedure optimal recovery.
The third product in the Skinuva pipeline, Skinuva Bruise, is a homeopathic Arnica supplement that helps reduce bruising, swelling, and pain from surgeries, cosmetic procedures, and injuries.
Skinuva Bruise is FDA registered and manufactured by an FDA registered facility and was scientifically reviewed by panel of regulatory consultants to ensure its safety profile.
Skinuva Scar+ SPF: Direct response to physician demand for scar cream with SPF
Skinuva Scar+ SPF is a physician developed and clinically tested scar photoaging defense cream using highly selective growth factors with Zinc Oxide mineral sunscreen.
Skinuva Scar+ SPF has all the benefits of the original Skinuva Scar but with added non-nano Zinc Oxide for broad spectrum SPF 30 UVA/UVB protection. Skinuva Scar+ SPF has been specifically formulated for areas exposed to the sun such as the face, neck, and hands to minimize the darkening effects associated with sun exposure and help reduce the appearance of redness and hyperpigmentation.
