EZbra Postsurgical Dressing Enters the US Market


EZbra Advanced Wound Care Ltd, developer of a patented disposable and sterile postsurgical breast dressing that provides an advanced solution for the diverse postop requirements of all breast procedures, announces its official entry into the US market.

The company made its official debut at the Aston Baker Cutting Edge Aesthetic Surgery Symposium, held recently in New York City.

EZbra is a proprietary sterile disposable all-in-one advanced breast dressing, offering a state-of-the-art solution to address the challenges that arise following all breast procedures (aesthetic, biopsy, lumpectomy, mastectomy, and reconstruction) — helping surgeons, both US and worldwide, address patient discomfort as well as save time in the operating room. Additionally, the disposable and sterile qualities of EZbra may help decrease the risk of infection during recovery, explains a media release from the Tel Aviv, Israel-based company.

“We are proud to bring our product to the US market and to introduce our solution to surgeons and their HCP staff to provide patients with a tailored, sterile, and disposable breast dressing option,” says Efrat Roman, breast cancer survivor and EZbra CEO. “Our goal is to offer a quality post-operative option, while providing patients with the independence, dignity and self-esteem they deserve during recovery.”

“EZbra is a great new innovative postsurgical bra that adapts to the anatomy of each individual following their breast procedure,” Aston states in the release. “It was designed by a patient after her mastectomy when she realized there were no personalized and disposable bras available. The availability of a wound care solution that addresses the various needs and challenges associated with all breast procedures represents a significant development for postop breast recovery.”

Sciton Introduces the ALLURA Submental Contouring Laser

ALLURA Neck Sciton

Sciton announces the release of ALLURA, a micro-invasive laser module for rapid fat reduction and skin contraction in the submental, neck, and chin area.

“ALLURA Neck is all about rapid contour results with a single, office-based treatment,” says Marc Salzman, MD, a plastic surgeon in Louisville, KY, in a media release from Palo Alto, Calif-headquartered Sciton.

“It fits perfectly into my practice, next to non-invasive modalities like CoolSculpting Mini and Kybella. These procedures have the limitations of taking several months and sessions to attain modest results. With ALLURA Neck, the outcomes are profound within two weeks, 100% of the time. In addition, it is a high ROI procedure,” he adds.

“We’ve found that ALLURA captures an attractive, distinct patient profile,” remarks Aaron Burton, chief operating officer of Sciton, in the release. “Many patients want fast, visible results in a one-and-done treatment. To provide this option, our customers have urged us to revitalize a proven procedure with new simplified features, protocols and branding. We’ve done that with ALLURA and believe it’s a great addition to our Joule platform.”

“I leverage my patient base, and they love that I have alternatives for them,” adds Jared Mallalieu, DO, a cosmetic surgeon in Severna Park, MD.

“In consultations, and also for new patients, they often have wrong assumptions and incomplete understanding. Many opt for ALLURA when they got the whole picture with all major pros and cons, including results versus time and cost.”

ALLURA Neck can be added to the Sciton JOULE platform, according to the company. The JOULE platform is an expandable platform that is engineered to offer an array of laser and light wavelengths through delivery modes such as arm, fiber and BroadBand Light.

CeraVe Expands Skincare Portfolio with New Products

CeraVe, a skincare brand owned by L’Oréal, introduces four new therapeutic skincare products: a Hydrating Hyaluronic Acid Serum and a Diabetics’ Dry Skin Relief line, which includes a Moisturizing Cream, Hand and Foot Cream and a Cleansing Wash.


The Diabetics’ Dry Skin Relief line was developed to address the specific skincare needs of people with diabetes and help reduce their risk of skin complications, which diabetics are prone to.

“As the number of diabetes sufferers continues to rise, it was important to us that we develop this trio of products to help this growing segment of consumers seeking specialized skincare,” says Derrick Booker, vice president of marketing at CeraVe, in a media release. “We know that people with diabetes have unique skincare concerns and these new products demonstrate our commitment to providing diabetes sufferers with affordable and therapeutic skincare offerings.”

Each product in the line contains a combination of three essential ceramides, plus bilberry and urea which help to soothe the skin and deliver long-lasting moisturization. Bilberry is antioxidant-rich and known for helping to diminish bruising, while urea is a natural moisturizer that adds and retains moisture.


The Hydrating Hyaluronic Acid Serum, created to help consumers counteract the lifestyle habits that dehydrate skin, such as stress, weather and diet, is also set to hit shelves in late 2018. The formulation replenishes skin with hyaluronic acid. The serum also contains vitamin B5, which aids skin in achieving a more supple and radiant appearance.

New RESHAPE Hybrid Platform Features Ultrasound and Radio Frequency

Alma Lasers introduces RESHAPE, a body and face contouring platform for beauticians.

Based on Alma’s medical device solutions, and incorporating the company’s technology, RESHAPE is a novel hybrid platform that combines two energy sources – ultrasound and radio frequency – into one synergic solution for fat reduction, skin tightening, and facial anti-aging treatments, according to the company in a media release.

RESHAPE offers tailored treatments to meet the needs of different patients, with a choice of three types of applicators:

  • MiniSpeed – a revolutionary Ultrasound-based applicator for fat reduction, designed to treat small areas, it delivers ultrasound energy effectively to the targeted area, reducing the volume of fat cells in stubborn areas, providing a safe and effective face and body contouring solution.
  • SkinUp  a Radio Frequency applicator, which gently heats the skin to facilitate highly effective skin tightening treatments. The applicator is designed to fit different areas, including the buttocks, belly, and underarm as well as the face. The focused RF energy generates heat that targets the dermal layer, facilitating new collagen formation, and resulting in tighter, younger looking skin.
  • Impact  an Ultrasound-based applicator for skin rejuvenation and skin enhancement. The applicator harnesses the power of acoustic oscillations, emitting acoustic waves onto the skin to create a push and pull effect, while exfoliating the skin and removing dead skin cells and excess sebum.

“We are excited to share our Medical Aesthetics-grade technologies with beauty practitioners, enabling more consumers around the world to enjoy safe and effective beauty treatments,” says Lior Dayan, Alma’s CEO, the release continues.

HydraFacial Essentials Features Three-Step System for Skin Health

The HydraFacial Company debuts HydraFacial Essentials, a daily regimen formulated to provide three fundamental skincare steps: cleaning, protecting and restoring.

This skincare collection mimics the HydraFacial 3-step treatment process with an at-home regimen formulated to maintain good skin health. This streamlined new lineup creates the “essential” elements at the root of every skin health routine, allowing clients to take their glow on the go, according to a media release.

“We are delighted to introduce our HydraFacial Essentials Line – this next generation in skin health offers breakthrough formulas in an easy to use three-step system,” says Clint Carnell, chief executive officer of The HydraFacial Company, in the release. “The Essentials are perfect for our HydraFacial enthusiasts looking to extend their treatment benefits at home and new consumers in search of a foolproof regimen.”

At the core of the collection is the Clean Cream Cleanser, a universal cleanser that’s suitable for all skin types which does not strip the skin of natural oils. This gentle formula cleanses the skin without drying it out.

The next step is the multi-purpose Protect SPF 40 Day Cream, which provides moisturizing, pollution-fighting and sun protecting benefits. This physical sunscreen contains titanium and zinc dioxide to physically block UVA, UVB, and HEV (High Energy Visible Light, aka Blue Light) rays  to help fight the appearance of wrinkles, sun spots, hyperpigmentation and rough texture. Protect is offered in a universal tint and an untinted version, perfect for all skin types.

The final step is the Restore Night Cream, which includes one of the newest peptides to hit the market – Myristoyl Nonapeptide-3. Similar to Retinol, it’s packed with benefits such as helping to increase cellular turnover and brighten the appearance of skin but is much gentler and less irritating. Restore is designed with antioxidant and peptide complexes for anti-aging benefits, making it the perfect product to round out the three-step system, the release explains.

The Essentials are available in select spas and physician offices where HydraFacial treatments are performed.
