Novo Solutions

Scar cream contains purified human umbilical cord serum

NovoScarMD is a scar cream containing patent-pending NovoSerum, a cell free concentration of multiple growth factors taken from purified human umbilical cord serum.

The product is designed to eliminate scars by disrupting the formation process at all levels, the company claims. NovoSerum helps to promote wound healing by releasing platelet-derived growth factors. The serum is provided by a cryobank in the United States that has been certified by the Food and Drug Administration.

NovoScarMD Physicians Formula, which the company states can produce visible results in days, is available at clinicians’ offices and in medical spas.

Iagnosis

App lets patients submit skin photos to derms

An online dermatologic care site now has a mobile application that will allow patients to upload diagnostic images and send them to board-certified dermatologists. DermatologistOnCall features a platform in which patients can create private and secure accounts to submit to dermatologists photos and descriptions of their skin conditions. They can get a response on the condition within three business days, according to the company.

The online “visit” includes a treatment plan based on the patient’s history, condition and diagnosis by the dermatologist. This may include a recommendation for an in-office visit. Any necessary prescriptions are sent to the patient’s pharmacy electronically.

Exsurco Medical

Tissue excision technology improves overall yield

Amalgatome MD Skin Recovery Device utilizes a more maneuverable device to access hard-to-reach areas, increasing the potential for better overall yield, such as for more transplantable skin grafts, according to the company.

The device is designed for cadaveric tissue bank use only, and requires minimal maintenance and a single-use blade that may be used during an entire skin recovery. Features of the device also include controlled depth adjustments, a specially designed depth plate that allows technicians to maintain consistent excision depth, and a minimal maintenance design so that technicians do not have to calibrate between each donor recovery. Single-use disposable blades help to prevent the risk of cross-contamination.
