The Regimen

Is There Such a Thing as Botox in a Bottle?

The search for smoother, plumper, more youthful skin leads many to dermal fillers. But not everyone is willing or can afford to go under the needle to achieve their skin goals.

If you prefer your skincare on the non-invasive side, there are pain-free options that offer dramatic, visible results, ironing out lines, plumping lax skin, and improving tone and texture.

Ingredients to age-proof your skin:


While not as immediate in their results, these needle-free solutions have long-term benefits that fillers can’t offer. Fillers might erase wrinkles for the short-term, but they do nothing to prevent aging at a cellular level and can actually damage the underlying structure of your skin, leaving it looser and thinner over time.

Resilient, youthful skin comes from a consistent regimen of quality, evidence-based skincare, and a healthy lifestyle. There are no quick fixes. There is prevention and maintenance. What’s required are ingredients that act at the cellular level to build and protect collagen and elastin, support cell renewal, and hydrate the skin. Here are the needle-free transformers you need in your ageless regimen.


Ingredients to age-proof your skin: 


Both a promoter and protector of firm, elastic, youthful skin structure, retinol  accelerates cell renewal, stimulates collagen synthesis, and prevents harmful oxidative stress. Vitamin A Propionate, the patented ingredient in Vivant’s corrector serums, has a more dramatic and faster effect than other retinols because of its smaller molecular structure. Other retinols are too big to reach the deeper levels of the skin, so their results are minimal and take longer. Vitamin A Propionate is the top of the retinol food chain and your must-have for a smoother, line-free appearance.

New to retinol therapy? Start with Derm-A-Gel®. If you have very sensitive skin, start with Derm-A-Renew, a combination of retinol and peptides. This gentle formula builds a tolerance for more advanced formulas.

Already a devotee? Vivant has a complete line of retinol therapies so you can push your results further as your skin acclimates. Not sure which level of retinol you need? Read this.



Peptides are short molecular chains of amino acids, essentially the building blocks of protein. These cell-signaling agents work by stimulating the fibroblast cells in the dermis to produce collagen and elastin. They also protect telomeres, the caps at the ends of chromosomes that keep cells from aging. Peptides spur the skin’s natural production of collagen, hyaluronic acid, and elastin to combat fine lines, wrinkles, and thinning skin. And like fillers, peptides can act on the receptors that contract facial muscles to reduce expression lines.

Vivant’s Rejuv Rx Peptide Concentrate is probably as close as you can get to the fabled “Botox in a bottle.” This intensive formula delivers a potent dose of peptides with ceramide-boosting niacinamide and hydrating lactic acid to reinforce and rebuild the skin’s structural integrity and elasticity. It will also extend the life of fillers if you are using them. 

For the eye area, Vivant’s Wink Eye Rejuvenation Cream, with its blend of retinol, peptides, and caffeine, is a high-performance formula for lifting, firming, and brightening.


Every day, skin is exposed to age-accelerating oxidative stress. Pollutants, UV, and chemicals are just some of the triggers for free radicals that breakdown collagen, leading to wrinkles and sagging skin. Antioxidants fight the damaging effects of free radicals to protect and repair cellular function. 

Every ageless regimen requires antioxidant ingredients. Our most potent antioxidant formula is Pure C + E. A superstar duo of antioxidant vitamins C and E give this formula a synergistic advantage for advanced photoprotection, cellular repair, and collagen-boosting. Vitamin C is also a natural brightener, so this formula is the total package for a brighter, smoother, plumper appearance and an overall radiant glow.
