From addressing specific issues—such as ageing, pigmentation, acne or scarring—to enhancing the overall look and feel of your skin, we approach each of your goals with the same degree of dedication and care.

We start each client relationship with a complimentary consultation <hyperlink: Initial Consultation page>, which allows us to fully understand your aims and conduct a thorough skin analysis before making recommendations to help you achieve the results you want.

At James Vivian Dermal Therapies, we don’t believe that ‘one size fits all’. Every treatment and product we recommend is chosen especially to meet your needs. We will never perform a treatment if it places your wellbeing at risk and will always refer you to one of our contacts in the cosmetic or medical communities if we feel you will benefit from a different type of care.

Our methods are tried and tested, clinically proven and of the highest quality. None of our products have been tested on animals and we stay away from nasties like parabens, petrolatum, sulphates, and artificial fragrances and colours.

At James Vivian Dermal Therapies, we take home care very seriously. The products you use at home can make a big difference in achieving the skin results you want.

We understand that you might have become jaded by the number of failed products you’ve used in the past and we look forward to restoring your faith in effective skincare. We’re so confident in our products that if we can’t turn you into a believer again, we’ll give you your money back!

As for the products themselves, we believe that effective skincare products depend on contents, not packaging and words. That’s why we choose our product range based on ingredients rather than brands. We let science tell us what works, then select the most effective products from an array of highly respected skincare brands to ensure you receive the skincare industry’s very best.


All of our products are free from animal testing, propylene glycol, sulphates, parabens, mineral oil, petrolatum, formaldehyde-releasing agents, and artificial fragrances and colours.

Slip Pillowcase

Ever woken up with a ‘sleep crease’ on your face? While the creases usually go away later the same day, they are an indication of the damage done to your face while sleeping on a cotton pillowcase.

Made from mulberry silk with a thickness of 22 momme, Slip silk pillowcases are the very best available anywhere in the world.


Skinvigor8’s SilcSkin Décolleté Pads were invented by two-time Emmy Award winning Hollywood makeup artist Camille Calvet. Calvet realised that while there were many products available to combat lines on the face, there was a noticeable gap when it came to chest lines in the décolletage, where wrinkles form as the result of side sleeping, sun damage, ageing and gravity.

“What sets James Vivian Dermal Therapies apart from other professionals in the beauty industry is the incredible lengths the team will go to in caring for their customers.

Man - you look good!

Men differ from women when it comes to their skincare goals. Whilst women often worry about fine lines and wrinkles, men often complain about looking tired or have concerns such as acne scarring and flaking skin.
