Dr. Elizabeth VanderVeer, Founder & President of VanderVeer Center and VOLANTÉ Skincare, was the featured guest on Influencers Radio show discussing what lead her to develop a new line of skincare products featuring her patent-pending way to de-age the skin and improve skin health while treating cosmetic conditions.
The world today is often focused on how the environment can impact people’s lives. Warnings abound about the damage that can be caused by too much sun and pollution, and lifestyle choices people make that prematurely age them. Dr. VanderVeer is bringing to light her concern regarding how people unintentionally cause harm to their skin and accelerate its aging process every day in their bathrooms.
Over the past decade, Dr. VanderVeer has worked at her eponymous anti-aging clinic located in Portland, Oregon, to find the solution to aging skin. By treating thousands of patients at VanderVeer Center to improve their appearance, she discovered the currently available products did not work in a meaningful way. They did not allow her patients to have younger looking skin – the very thing they sought from these anti-aging products. Dr. VanderVeer also realized that the current regimens offered and promoted for treating skin conditions, enhancing beauty and anti-aging purposes can also cause harm to the skin, resulting in premature aging of the skin.
Dr. VanderVeer expressed her concern, saying, “I believe we are causing significant harm to our skin, premature aging and a host of other problems by what we are told to do every day to make our skin look younger. Healthy skin has an intact barrier that protects us. I believe one of the misguided principles of Dermatology – and anti-aging philosophy in particular – is that we somehow have to over-aggressively stimulate and exfoliate our skin in order to make it look younger or to be healthier. We are told to use harsh acids, burning chemicals, abrasive scrubs and mechanical devices to inflame and disrupt the top layers of the skin.
All the while, we’re breaking the skin down. And, for the most part, the skin doesn’t look any better, and we know for a fact that it’s not healthier. My patients have told me over the past ten years that they don’t feel good in their skin; their skin hurts, it’s raw, red and angry. We know inflammation is not good for the body. Calling on the principles of Internal Medicine, I knew there had to be a better way.”
As a doctor of Internal Medicine, not Dermatology, Dr. VanderVeer explains, “If you understand that the skin is the largest organ of our entire body and then you look at how we treat the other organs of the body, we would never intentionally irritate or inflame an internal organ of our body, such as the liver with hepatitis, or our brain with encephalitis, or our joints with arthritis. We would never do that intentionally and call that a state of health. In fact, physicians are now focused on decreasing inflammation inside the body.”
This mindset caused Dr. VanderVeer to put forth a theory: She postulated that if a topical treatment could significantly decrease inflammation on and in the skin, rather than cause or promote inflammation, it would be able to substantially de-age the skin and improve overall skin health. The problem she encountered was that there was not any such topical available. So, she did what any other scientist would do, she created her own solution.
The result of Dr. VanderVeer’s years of work in her clinic lead to the development of 7VITAE – a botanically-based potent topical anti-inflammatory. Each ingredient in 7VITAE was carefully chosen by Dr. VanderVeer for both its anti-inflammatory benefit and at least one other way each constituent in the blend promotes overall skin health. 7VITAE – which is found in very high concentrations in VOLANTÉ Skincare, allows for rapid, healthy skin rejuvenation without redness, flaking, or painful irritation. And, without a prescription.
So, while patients and consumers alike may only care about how young their skin looks, Dr. VanderVeer has the satisfaction of knowing that if they use VOLANTE Skincare, their skin is also healthy. She states, “Healthy skin is youthful skin.”
During the show Dr. VanderVeer announced that she is launching VOLANTÉ Skincare worldwide in her effort to fundamentally change the way the world cares for skin.
