Sonoma Pharmaceuticals, Inc. has received a new 510(k) clearance from the FDA for an antimicrobial post-therapy gel. Under the supervision of a healthcare professional, the new product is intended for the management of post-non-ablative laser therapy procedures and post-microdermabrasion therapy as well for use following superficial chemical peels. It may also be used to relieve itch and pain from minor skin irritations, lacerations, abrasions and minor burns.
Dr. Michael Gold, founder of Gold Skin Care Center, Advanced Aesthetics Medical Spa, The Laser & Rejuvenation Center, and Tennessee Clinical Research Center, all located in Nashville, TN, commented, “This antimicrobial post-treatment gel is a promising new tool for all dermatologists and aesthetic clinicians who are looking to better manage medical procedures, post-procedure itch and pain associated with procedures including laser skin resurfacing, while promoting enhanced healing and protection against secondary infections. In our clinical testing to date, we have seen dramatically improved outcomes with quicker healing times and less patient discomfort when this advanced technology is added to our procedure management protocol.”
"This approval is one in a series that further fortifies Sonoma’s portfolio of innovative antimicrobial dermatology products,” says Jim Schutz, Sonoma Pharmaceutical's CEO. “With our continuing efforts working with the FDA to provide best-in-class products as alternatives to topical steroids and topical antibiotics, dermatologists should have increased confidence in our growing product portfolio without concern for the troubling side effects found in dated treatments.”Next Story
