Exciting skincare to protect against blue light emitted by phones and devices10 Sep 2018
Novel, dual-acting product revitalizes and protects skin against blue light and environmental aggressors around the clock.
Allergan has launched the new SkinMedica LUMIVIVE System, an innovative skincare product designed with two distinct formulas - one to shield skin from blue light and environmental aggressors during the day and another to recharge the skin's essential repair process at night.
During the day, LUMIVIVE offers full atmospheric protection and fights the signs of ageing for optimal skin health and vitality. At night, LUMIVIVE supports the skin's ability to repair itself overnight, restoring the appearance of a glowing, youthful complexion. Unlike any other product on the market, the innovative LUMIVIVETM System formulas work around the clock to support optimal skin vitality and radiance, and doesn't fade throughout the day or wash off, providing 24-hour protection and revitalization.
"Skin today is under attack from multiple invisible threats," said San Diego-based dermatologist Dr Sabrina Fabi. "Visible light, including blue light like that emitted by phones and devices, is particularly insidious, because it penetrates deeper than some forms of ultraviolet light, down into the third layer of the skin, accelerating the visible signs of ageing, such as dark spots, wrinkles, and saggy or loose skin. I am excited to help launch this innovative product that not only repairs skin and promotes a healthy-looking complexion, but is potent enough to protect us from the many environmental elements that can leave skin looking less than its best."
In clinical studies, completed in some of the most polluted cities in the world, LUMIVIVE improved the appearance of skin tone, evenness and restored stressed skin for a more luminous complexion. 85% of patients agreed that LUMIVIVE reduced the effects of environmental damage on their skin and kept their skin looking radiant throughout the day.
"People around the world, spend an average of 2 hours per day on social media, while the average American looks at their phone 47 times a day and spends about 10 hours a day in front of a screen," says Carrie Strom, Senior Vice President, US Medical Aesthetics at Allergan. "We know that blue light and pollution are all around us and can't be avoided. We felt it was important to address an unmet need by creating a system that not only protects the skin from environmental damage during the day, but also enhances the skin's ability to restore and repair skin during the sleep-repair cycle as well."
