 Our Programs approach

Each Vivier Program is designed as a complete end to end routine to Prepare, Target, Moisturize and Protect your skin. We specifically tailor each program to your skin condition and needs to ensure the best results. Each product prepares the skin for the next step and when combined as directed, ensure visible, predictable results, at a better value.


Follow the steps indicated in the card provided with your program.

While brightening & restoring your skin’s natural radiance, expect to go through three phases. The duration of each phase may vary based on your individual skin condition.
Phase 1: “Cleanse and Detox Your Skin” (weeks 1 to 6) You have accepted to embark on a journey to healthy and youthful skin. During this initial stage of treatment, it is very normal to see some effects from purging/detoxification before the skin starts to rejuvenate.
Phase 2: “Experience the Transformation – The Beauty of Results®” (weeks 7 to 12) At this stage, your skin is more tolerant and most of the potential skin responses have dissipated. There will be a visible reduction in hyperpigmentation and skin will have a natural, healthy glow.
Phase 3: “Maintenance to Keep Skin Healthy and Strong” (weeks 13 to 36) At the final stage, you will cycle-off the Brighten & Restore Program (2% HQ) to a program without hydroquinone such as our Brighten & Restore Program (Non-HQ) or one of our Anti-Aging Programs for maintenance. It is important to continue to wear an SPF 30+ to maintain your results.


Q: Can this program be combined with a chemical peel?

A:Yes. For improved results, we recommend combining a Vivier Peel™ or TX JESSNER PLUS peel with your Brighten & Restore Program (2% HQ). Begin your program following your first in-office peel, get your second peel after 8 weeks and complete your program after 12 weeks.

Q: Why doesn’t the Brighten & Restore Program include a moisturizer?

A: The main purpose of this program is to increase the rate of cellular turnover and exfoliation to bring fresh new skin to the surface and brighten its appearance. Using a moisturizer slows this process.

That being said, it is normal to feel mild dryness or irritation, especially in the first few weeks of using the program. So if you feel you need to add a moisturizer to your routine, we would recommend LEXXEL cream as the last step in the evening, or before sunscreen in the morning.

Q: What do I do if I run out of one product before the others?

A:You may choose to purchase that product individually as long as you are using this treatment and do not exceed the maximum of 12 weeks of use of 2% hydroquinone. After 12 weeks, we recommend that you cycle off to the Brighten & Restore Program (Non-HQ) or one of our Anti-Aging Programs for maintenance.
