Product Name: Eau Thermale Avène
Country of origin: France
Parent Company: Pierre Fabre Laboratories
Main Ingredient: Avène thermal spring water

Avène skincare products for sensitive skin are known world-wide and are produced in Avène, France where the curative waters of its thermal spring were first discovered in 1736. Dr. Callahan selected Avène products for her patients with sensitive skin, skin that is prone to redness and for gentle post-treatment skin care. Avène products are 100% paraben and fragrance free, offer a safe and sterile environment for after procedure care, and offer gentle restorative properties. Allure Magazine recognized Avène as a Breakthrough Award recipient.

Product Name: Clarisonic®
Country of origin: Washington, USA
Parent Company: Pacific Bioscience Laboratory, Inc.

Clarisonic provides a skincare system using a sonic-powered soft brush that vibrates in an oscillating fashion giving your skin a deep, thorough cleansing. The SkinFitness Center offers the Clarisonic cleansing system in a small travel size (Mia) and a larger body cleansing system (Pro) for the face or face and body. Both remove embedded dirt and oil to reduce pore size, provide better skin tone and texture when used daily. Clarisonic allows your skin to be truly clean, removing makeup six times better than hand washing alone.

Product Name: Colorescience®
Country of Origin: Texas, USA
Founder: Diane Ranger
Active Ingredient: Zinc oxide and titanium oxide

Colorescience make-up is a mineral make-up line created by Diane Ranger. Diane is known as the originator of mineral makeup and is the founder and creator of BareEscentuals, a mineral makeup she created in 1976. Colorescience is her newest line of mineral makeup, combining natural sunscreen ingredients and natural pigments to help achieve a clear, long-lasting, even look while protecting the skin from the damaging effects of the sun and environment. Our expert skincare consultants will “color-match” to your skin, helping you achieve a more even yet natural-looking skin tone. Dr. Callahan chose this makeup line because it offers sunscreen protection without any harsh ingredients like talc, dyes, alcohol, mineral oil, chemicals or fragrance that can irritate sensitive skin. Colorescience has been awarded the Seal of Recommendation from the Skin Cancer Foundation.


Product Name: Kinerase®
Country of Origin: Canada
Parent Company: Valeant Pharmaceuticals International
Active Ingredient: Kinetin, zeatin, synergistic peptides, ceramides and plant-based growth factors

Kinerase provides a gentle approach to skincare that helps improve the appearance of sun-damaged and prematurely-aged skin. Dr. Callahan chose to offer Kinerase®because along with natural ingredients like organic white tea and purified pomegranate extract, Kinerase® cleansers are gentle enough for even the most sensitive skin types and replace moisture naturally, an important factor to consider for your after treatment skin care. Kinerase® creams and treatments lock in moisture and help slow the signs of aging and improve the appearance of wrinkles, skin texture, sun damage and pigmentation.

The products chosen by Dr. Callahan contain a protein blend of growth factors, cytokines and interleukins that have been shown to be clinically effective in skin rejuvenation, post-procedure skincare and also for the care of sensitive, irritated skin. Products we carry are proven to reduce the appearance of fine lines, stimulate production of collagen and improve skin texture and firmness.

Product Name: NIA24®
Country of Origin: North Carolina, USA
Founders: Myron Jacobson, PhD and Elaine Jacobson, PhD
Active Ingredients: Niacin

NIA24 builds healthier skin by stimulating your skin’s own natural barrier function. Its main ingredient is a patented formulation of niacin called Pro-Niacin® that is released continuously and reduces brown spots, hyperpigmentation and lines associated with sun damage. NIA24 was chosen by Dr. Callahan because of its beneficial properties for moderate to severely sun-damaged skin. This formulation has been chosen by the National Cancer Institute for development as a possible skin cancer prevention agent. Studies show that within 12 weeks skin is healthier, with a significant reduction in hyperpigmentation, sun damage and brown spots. Another benefit is a reduction in fine lines and wrinkles, and improved skin firmness and texture.
