Anti-Aging Technology

With a plethora of ingredients including bio­peptides, vitamins A and C, and powerful antioxidants, the C-Quence line by Environ® rejuvenates the skin, effectively re­ducing the vi­sible signs of photo-aging. C-Quence Gel, which comes in four strengths, helps firm the skin and smoothes wrinkles and fine lines. It also enriches and protects the skin; refines the surface of the skin; and reduces the uneven tone of blemishes, dark-pigmented areas, and scarring.

C-Quence Crème is formulated for use with C-Quence Gel to complete the treatment. It is rich in highly effective antioxidants, and it protects the skin against UV radiation.

C-Quence Eye Gel effectively reduces fine lines and stimulates the fibroblasts’ DNA to create collagens I and III.

Fistula Plug

Cook Group Inc introduces the Surgisis AFP Fistula Plug for fistula re­pairs. Surgisis AFP is a cone-shaped medical device de­signed for easy placement by the surgeon into a fistula channel. Once in place, Surgisis AFP serves as a bio­scaffold to facilitate well-organized tissue re­generation that closes the fistula.

The Surgisis biomaterial takes on the cellular characteristics of the surrounding tissue and serves as a scaffold on which human tissue grows. As the biomaterial is replaced with cells, the scaffold is no longer needed and is absorbed by the body.
