The Nation’s Top Dermatologists and Plastic Surgeons Agree
“My patients, especially four lid blepharoplasty patients, benefit from the use of Ocumend. They may have bruising apparent intra-operatively, but if I put the pads on immediately after surgery, it seems to help dramatically. They come back to see me one week later with very little bruising. In fact, I have seen a patient on POD #3 who had significant bruising right after the surgery and she was almost clear of any ecchymosis.”
Wendy W. Lee, M.D.,M.S., Associate Professor of Clinical Ophthalmology and Dermatology Oculofacial Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery, Orbit and Oncology Bascom Palmer Eye Institute, University of Miami Miller School of Medicine, Miami, FL.
“OcuMend nanotechnology arnica patches have been a tremendous asset to my practice. Patients have told me when they use the patches they are less likely to bruise after injectables. This is one way I have differentiated my practice and added value for my patients.”
Sue Ellen Cox, M.D., Secretary of ASDS
“OcuMend has been a helpful adjunct to reduce the incidence and severity of injection-induced bruising in my practice. I personally apply the patches to the involved areas immediately after the injections and instruct patients to similarly place new patches prior to going to bed that same evening. Most patients who have experienced pronounced bruising in the past experience little to no bruising with the use of these arnica-infused patches. OcuMend has quickly become an integral part of my post-injection protocol .”
Tina Alster M.D., Clinical Professor of Dermatology at Georgetown University Hospital
“OcuMend gives both our practice and our patients a security blanket. It’s a great new tool that makes the procedure easier on our patients. It gives our practice a leg up because we are at the cutting edge of practice patterns that are beneficial to our patients.”
Norman Pastorek, M.D., PC, FACS , Clinical Professor, Facial Plastic Surgery, Department of Otolaryngology, NY Presbyterian Hospital
“The use of OcuMend has decreased the amount of bruising and swelling in the post-operative period. This has led to a noticeable improvement in the recovery of my cosmetic blepharoplasty patients.”
William P. Mack, M.D.,P.A. Associate Professor of Ophthalmology University of South Florida
“I was very skeptical about OcuMend’s efficacy because I have had mixed results with arnica on bruising, pain or swelling caused by dermal fillers. I tried OcuMend on over 15 patients that have the highest propensity for bruising and found the results to be remarkable. The patients’ feedback was that OcuMend was terrific and they were very pleased with the results. They had minimal to no bruising, when previously they may have had bruises for up to two weeks. My staff and I are amazed at how well it works on our patients. It has to be the hydrogel technology that makes the arnica pads so effective. We are now working to incorporate it into our dermal filler protocol.”
Craig Teller M.D., F.A.A.D., Houston, TX.
“The use of OcuMend in our practice sets us apart by delivering results that we cannot obtain with any other product. Patients want to recover over a long weekend instead of recovery taking more than a week. OcuMend allows our patients to return to their lives sooner.”
Jack A. Zamora, M.D., Denver, CO.
“I’ve integrated OcuMend into my practice with great results. Applying these unique, cooling and comforting gel pads immediately after facial fillers, toxins, and non-ablative procedures not only gives patients a better outcome by minimizing bruising, but it also shows them that we are going the extra mile by dispensing the newest, state of the art, experience validated technology. This added value increases patient satisfaction and immediate post-procedure comfort, encourages patient retention, and encourages practice growth. OcuMend separates us from other practices in a positive manner.”
Ed Zimmerman, M.D., Las Vegas, NV.
“OcuMend has given me surprising and unexpectedly positive results that I have not seen with other Arnica products. I used the product on myself after a vitrase/filler injection and a bruise that usually lasts a week was gone in 2 days.”
Lisa Donofrio, M.D., President-Elect of the American Society for Dermatologic Surgery (ASDS)
