The Revivelife Approach

Integrative therapies include nutritional supplements such as zinc, vitamin C, fish oil, and vitamin D help restore skin integrity and normalize immune function.1,2  As each person is unique, our approach to you will be unique. Key strategies may include:

  • Nutrition: Antioxidants, including vitamins A, C and E fight free radicals that can weaken collagen and protect against other aging effects of damaging UV exposure and pollution. Research shows that those with higher intakes of vitamin C and anti-inflammatory omega-3 rich foods have fewer wrinkles. Oral and IV Therapies are available.3
  • Glutathione: Glutathione is an antioxidant that promotes skin elasticity, the reduction of wrinkles, skin lightening and overall skin health. Therapeutic doses orally and by IV available.4
  • Hyaluronic Acid: Your skin is like a sponge, when it gets an adequate amount of moisture, it looks plump and smooth, but if its dry and dehydrated, fine lines and wrinkles become more noticeable. Hyaluronic acid increases the ability of the skin to retain water leading to more youthful skin.5
  • Nicotinamide:  Nicotinamide has antimicrobial activity and has been shown to be as effective as the antibiotic clindamycin topically in the treatment of acne vulgaris.6
  • Evening Primrose Oil:  This oil  is a rich source of the omega-6 fatty acid gamma-linolenic acid (GLA) which has been found to increase the blood levels of phospholipids that help modulate the inflammatory response in those with dry skin, eczema and mild atopic dermatitis.7,8
