ROSEVILLE, Calif., Dec. 4, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Aesyntix Physician Network (APN), a leading group purchasing organization (GPO) for dermatology and cosmetic surgery practices, today announced that it has entered into an agreement with Senté, Inc., a privately held cosmeceutical company engaged in the development of differentiated medical skincare products based on glycoproteins. Aesyntix continues to provide APN members value with access to high quality products such as Senté's innovative dermatological products at preferred pricing.
