SAN DIEGO, Oct. 8, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Senté, Inc., a privately held cosmeceutical company engaged in the development of innovative and targeted medical skincare products based on glycoproteins, today announced that the company has entered into a distribution agreement with Tri-City Medical Center, a Gold Seal-approved, full-service, acute-care hospital. Under this alliance, Tri-City Medical Center will sell and distribute Senté Dermal Repair Cream to patients in the Tri-City Laser and Aesthetic Center adjacent to the Tri-City Wellness Center in Carlsbad.
"Senté's science-based approach to skincare and impressive clinical results are a natural fit for the Tri-City Laser and Aesthetic Center," said David Bennett, Senior Vice President and Chief Marketing Officer for Tri-City Medical Center. "Our physicians, nurses and aestheticians have been very pleased with the results that Senté Dermal Repair Cream has achieved both as a standalone anti-aging regimen and following common facial aesthetic procedures such as laser treatments."
The Tri-City Laser and Aesthetic Center is the first and only state-licensed cosmetic center in California associated with a Joint Commission accredited hospital, Tri-City Medical Center. The center's clients can now purchase the Senté dermal repair cream for use at home following a consultation with the center's medical staff.
"We continue to expand the distribution of Senté Dermal Repair Cream and are excited to be affiliated with Tri-City," said Michael York, President and Chief Executive Officer of Senté, Inc. "Tri-City's team of multidisciplinary physicians, state of the art facilities and focus on the patient is an ideal place for Senté to offer its science-based skincare products to patients."
Senté Dermal Repair Cream is a physician dispensed dermatological product that features a proprietary formulation of the active ingredient heparan sulfate (HS). Senté Dermal Repair Cream helps the body replenish the essential skin building blocks that are lost with aging and UV exposure. Clinical studies demonstrate that Senté Dermal Repair Cream is ideal for use following common dermatological procedures such as IPL, lasers, chemical peels, skin tightening and injectables, due to the skin soothing (lenitive effect) and wound healing properties of heparan sulfate. Senté Dermal Repair Cream can also be used as a skin maintenance therapy following a procedure and for everyday use for treatment of fine lines, hydration, skin tone and texture.
