STRETCH MARKS THERAPY
Merz Pharmaceuticals, Greensboro, NC, introduces Mederma® Stretch Marks Therapy, a patented formula containing a combination of Cepalin®, hyaluronic acid, and centella asiatica leaf extract to help women improve the appearance of stretch marks. It is dermatologist tested and clinically proven to reduce discoloration, improve texture, and enhance skin’s softness, with noticeable improvement in about 4 weeks and optimum improvement in 12 weeks when used twice daily. Mederma Stretch Marks Therapy is effective on all the areas of the body where stretch marks occur, including the arms, abdomen, and buttocks.
La Roche-Posay, New York City, introduces DERM AOX anti-glycation and anti-oxidation serum, which, according to the company, inhibits the glycation process and protects against cell oxidation to slow the skin-aging process, smooth wrinkles, and restore radiance. It combines three ingredients: carnosine, which maintains the skin’s suppleness by preventing the skin’s matrix from stiffening; Pycnogenol®, which neutralizes free radicals and helps protect skin cells from damage; and vitamin C, which helps restore skin structure, smooth skin texture, and increase radiance.
BACKUP POWER SYSTEM
Medi+Products, Stamford, Conn, introduces the SILENT SENTRY™ Emergency Backup Power System. It has a low-profile, ultracompact design, yet it is powerful enough to support surgical equipment, lighting, and alarm systems. A stand-alone (pictured) or hardwired model is available. Both systems activate instantly and automatically recharge, and are safe and quiet.
TEI Biosciences, Boston, introduces SurgiMend® PRS, a biologic mesh made from SurgiMend Collagen Matrix—derived from the skin of fetal or neonatal calves—that is designed specifically to be used for breast reconstruction. It is available in three unique shapes and sizes that easily conform to breast contours and provide sound structural support during healing. It also incorporates a dense network of finestrations that assist with fluid drainage, provide gradual stretch, and improve incorporation.
