The latest plastic surgery products and services


Prescription Foundation

Lycogel by Dermacia MD is a medically prescribed foundation that covers blemishes and evens skin tone, allowing the skin to breathe when applied. Lycogel is safe to use after asthetic procedures, such as CO2 laser skin resurfacing and deep chemical peels. Lycogel increases oxygenation, and reduces redness, swelling, and irritation. Lycogel contains vitamins A, C, and E, and has SPF 30. It boasts pharmacy-grade water devoid of minerals to prevent bacterial attraction and skin irritation during healing. The Lycogel line includes Lycogel Camouflage and Lycogel Concealer. The products can be used on skin with acne and on skin with second-degree burns.

Undereye Pads

Medique Beauty Pads freshen tired-looking eyes and help reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. The pads are made from a soft, netted fabric that is cut into anatomical shapes. Once the pads are placed under the eye, the natural botanicals in the pads' fabric are released and absorbed into the skin. The pads are then peeled off after 30 to 40 minutes. They may be used postsurgery.
