NeoCutis products are unlike any other anti-aging products. Unlike other products that focus on collagen production and stimulation, NeoCutis products nourish aged skin the same way that wounded skin is treated. These products focus on maintaining high levels of protein in the skin. NeoCutis products were originally designed to promote scar-less wound healing.
Today, many NeoCutis products focus on anti-aging and restoring a youthful appearance to the face through high-quality products that hydrate the skin and reduce the appearance of wrinkles. It is believed that aged skin has the same basic needs as wounded skin, in that growth must be stimulated and managed in order to achieve the desired results. NeoCutis provides these growth factors, along with cytokines and antioxidants through a mixture called PSP®, or Processed Skin Cell Proteins.
PSP is found in NeoCutis Bio-restorative Skin Cream, one of the company’s most popular products, which is available in the form of an eye cream, hydrogel and day cream. NeoCutis products also include protection against UVA/UVB rays. Following a complete NeoCutis regimen can help drastically improve the appearance of aged or photoaged skin.
Latisse® is the first and only FDA approved treatment for hypotrichosis of the eyelashes. Hypotrichosis is another name for having inadequate or not enough eyelashes. Latisse is a breakthrough treatment to enhance eyelash prominence by increasing length, thickness, and darkness. Available only through prescription, Latisse is a once-daily treatment applied to the base of the upper eyelashes. Patients using Latisse can expect to experience longer, fuller, and darker eyelashes in as little as four weeks, with full results in sixteen weeks.

Blue Lizard Sunscreen
Dr. Mariano Busso is a huge stickler on protecting yourself from too much sun exposure. One of his top choices is Blue Lizard Australian Sunscreen, which we make available for purchase in our office.
Blue Lizard Australian Sunscreen originated in Australia, where standards for sunscreens are the highest in the world. Although Blue Lizard products are now manufactured in the United States, they continue to adhere to the most stringent Australian standards. Here are some reasons their products are recommended by dermatologists, pediatricians, and pharmacists nationwide:
- Photostable Broad Spectrum Protection
All of their products offer broad photostable UVA/UVB protection, protecting from UV radiation between 280 – 400 nanometers.
Zinc Oxide is the very best ingredient for protecting throughout the UVA spectrum, and dermatologists recommend products with at least 5% Zinc Oxide. All of their products have at least 6% Z-Cote Zinc Oxide. Z-Cote is a patented process of micronizing and coating Zinc Oxide to allow for an optimal dispersion of the mineral for an even barrier against UV rays.
- SPF 30+
SPF stands for Sun Protection Factor, and it is a measure of the effectiveness of a sunscreen against UVB rays. Every Blue Lizard formula is SPF 30+, offering more than 30 times your skin’s natural protection against UVB rays. If you are applying correctly, SPF 30 is all you need, and SPF 30+ is as high as Australian Standards will allow a sunscreen to claim!
- Water Resistance
In the United States, the highest standards for water resistance are 80 minutes in still water. Their Very Water Resistant Regular and Sport formulas meet the most stringent Australian Standards which are 240 minutes in whirlpool water, making them over three times as water resistant!
- Sensitive Ingredients
Blue Lizard has sunscreens for every type of person and skin. Whether you’re a surfer or a skin cancer survivor, their array of formulas offer products that are chemical-free, paraben-free, fragrance-free, oil-free, and propylene glycol-free.
- Patented Smart Bottle™ Packaging
Their patented Smart Bottle™ technology causes their bottles/lids to change color in the presence of dangerous UV rays. This serves as a friendly reminder to cover up and a great educational tool for teaching sun safety. Kids love it!
- Strictly Sunscreen
Blue Lizard is dedicated to promoting healthy skin and reducing the incidence of skin cancer. They’re strictly a sunscreen company and always will be. You’ll never find products that encourage tanning!
