The company strives to cover the skin care, any desired improvement, and /or medical
dermatology needs of all customers and patients. The extensiveness of our Vivant and Clinical
Formula series enables these needs to be met. In other cases, and for in-house patients,
prescriptions can be written, for example if a steroid is called for. It is also necessary for us to
keep up-to-date with any research in this field that culminates in a product that stands out in its
treatment performance, especially if it fills a gap or niche in our current product armamentarium.
In this regard, here are five uniquely new products we have chosen to carry from PCA.
Physicians Care Alliance (PCA) has been a recognized leader in the skin care industry for more
than 25 years, specializing in providing significant improvement in a variety of skin aging
Hyaluronic acid boosting serum. Hyaluronic acid is a critical ingredient for normal skin
functioning. With age, the natural production of hyaluronic acid starts to become depleted at
varying rates. This serum replenishes, at deeper layers of the skin, hyaluronic acid and the
natural water retention resulting therefrom. Once absorbed, it can bind a thousand times its
weight in water for maximum hydration. Note that a superficial, surface dryness my occur; it's
the deeper, sustained water retention/production that is accomplished. $84.00
Anti-redness serum. A most effective way, via this serum, to treat redness on the face.
Redness from rosacea is a common condition that responds well. Also effective for redness
secondary to an allergic reaction or an inflammatory process. Can start by gently rubbing into
the face as a thin film twice a day, and then taper usage as the redness subsides. Can be used in
combination with our green tea cleanser, which, as a cleanser, is called short contact treatment
because it's washed off, but still has strong anti-inflammatory and anti-redness properties. $50
Vitamin b3 brightening serum. A brightening effect, radiance, evenness of skin tone and clarity
are what this product is all about. It has an anti-inflammatory effect that is soothing and can
counteract the irritation brought about by other medicaments the individual may be using. The
ingredients have been shown to confer significant anti-aging benefits, making this a true skin
brightening/anti-aging topical treatment. The key ingredient is 6% Niacinamide (not to be
confused with the antioxidant Vitamin C), the highest concentration in the skin care field
today. Can be applied once or twice a day. $50
Active Broad Spectrum SPF 45 sunscreen. Broad spectrum means that it protects against the
entire spectrum of ultraviolet rays from the sun, both those that contribute to skin cancer and
those that prematurely cause aging effects of the skin. Has an additional protective antioxidant
effect. Not only an environmentally-friendly formulation, but also contains no
phthalates, parabens, or sulfates, frequently found in other sunscreens. $25.00.
Intensive Brightening Treatment. $50.00. The description of the PCA product is summarized in
the abstract below.
