The Verjú from Erchonia, located in McKinney, Tex, is the first federal Food and Drug Administration-cleared, noninvasive green light laser approved to treat cellulite on thighs, buttocks, and the lower abdomen, as well as to perform noninvasive body contouring of the waist, hips, and thighs. The device’s six green laser beams emulsify adipose tissue beneath the skin to reduce the appearance of cellulite and contour the body. To learn more, call (888) 242-0571 or visit www.erchonia.com.
Healing from the inside out is the idea behind a new line of skin nutraceuticals. GliSODin Skin Nutrients contain GliSODin®, a melon extract rich in superoxide dismutase, the enzyme that reportedly helps boost the potency of antioxidants. Some formulas help fight cellulite, others brighten a lackluster complexion, and some aid in detox efforts. Prices range from $50 to $195. Call (866) 534-5868 or visit www.glisodinskin.com.
Frustrated by skin markers that stop writing when wet? Viscot Medical LLC of East Hanover, NJ, has a fix for that. The VisFlow™ Pressurized Surgical Skin Marker is basically a marker within a syringe. When the VisFlow stops working, the user pushes on the syringe for a fresh supply of ink in the tip. This means the surgeon can continue to mark—even when the skin is wet. This marker works best for large surgical cases. A 5-count box retails for $30, a 25-count box is $90, and a 50-count box sells for $145. For more information or to order, call (800) 221-0658 or visit www.viscot.com.
A sugar that researchers call the “master molecule” is the key ingredient in a new skin renewal cream by Encinitas, Calif-based Senté Inc. Its Dermal Repair Cream contains a patented blend of ingredients, including Heparan Sulfate, a naturally occurring glycoprotein that helps skin capture moisture, keeping it supple, plump, and youthful. The cream helps dial down irritation and inflammation following chemical peels, injectables, and other dermatologic procedures. It can be used daily and is safe for sensitive skin. What’s more, dermatologists and plastic surgeons who join the
ZendyBeauty network will be able to sample and distribute Senté Dermal Repair Cream as part of a new strategic partnership. A 15-mL bottle sells for $79.95, and a 50-mL one retails for $169.95 at www.sentelabs.com.
