San Jose, CA (August 1, 2013) – Jan Marini Skin Research, Inc. (JMSR), a leading provider of professional skincare and aesthetic solutions, announced the launch of Marini BioShield. Marini BioShield is a breakthrough silicon-based, non-petrolatum technology for advanced post-procedure protection and repair. This patent-pending silicone face cream combines targeted growth factors, peptides and hydrators to speed recovery, reduce downtime and enhance treatment results. BioShield's near-invisible matte finish significantly increases user satisfaction by minimizing or eliminating the objections and social impact common to post-procedure recovery. Marini BioShield is intended for use following common treatments including fractional ablative and non-ablative laser resurfacing, chemical peels and PDT.

Jan Marini, CEO stated "We are repeatedly asked by physicians for a new and advanced, cosmetically elegant solution for post-procedure skin care. In specific, offices are looking for an alternative to petrolatum to protect and occlude the skin, enhance recovery and reduce downtime. Marini BioShield is the result of over 2 years of development with over 10 different independent physician offices to create a truly unique and innovative solution for post-procedure skin care. We are proud to release Marini BioShield - a superior non-petrolatum post-procedure product!"

Whitney D. Tope, MPhil, MD, Board Certified Dermatologist, states, "Marini BioShield is now my post-procedure product of choice. We've used it after PDT and ablative resurfacing and find it markedly improves our patient's recovery and experience. In fact, our most satisfied patients are those with prior treatment experience who now prefer BioShield. I personally used BioShield post PDT and was impressed by its efficacy and ability to minimize visible downtime. BioShield significantly reduced my erythema, stayed in place beautifully, and its matte surface camouflaged the appearance of recent injury. Back at work two days after PDT, very few people noticed I'd had a procedure or was even wearing anything. BioShield is a significant advancement in post-treatment care."
