Ultrasound devices are staples in many skin care practices, and now the JeNu ultrasound system brings this technology home.jenuDevice_w_light_1

The JeNu wand sends 365,000 pulses of ultrasound energy per second into a MicroSphere Conducting Gel on the skin. The vibrating microspheres temporarily dilate the pathways into the skin, allowing for enhanced delivery of topical creams and serums that treat brown spots, crow’s feet, redness, and other skin concerns.

With JeNu, the energy gets the active ingredients exactly where they need to be so that they can do exactly what they are supposed to do. The system boosts absorption of retinol palmitate and Hyaluronic acid by an average of 10 times in 10 minutes. For more information and price points, visit www.jenu.com/ft00323

injection_foreheadRevance Therapeutics Inc’s investigational injectable botulinum toxin type A (RT002) may give other products in this category a run for their money in terms of duration of results. It’s still early, but a Phase 1/2 study showed that RT002 reduced glabellar lines in nearly all of 48 patients. In addition, this benefit lasted 7 months—almost twice as long as what the literature has shown with conventional botulinum toxin injections, according to Revance Therapeutics Inc. The Phase 1/2 data appear in a special issue of Dermatologic Surgery.

RT002 is Revance’s proprietary, investigational injectable botulinum toxin. It is a pure, 150kD botulinum toxin type A molecule without any accessory proteins or animal-derived components. RT002 incorporates the patented TransMTS® peptide technology and is designed to provide a longer duration of effect. Revance is also developing a topical form of the toxin—RT001—using the same peptide technology. RT001 is currently in a Phase 3 clinical development program in the United States for the treatment of lateral canthal lines. Stay tuned.
