When Mark R. Engelman, MD, co-founder of Novo Solutions MD®, a new science-based skin care line, was looking for a medical advisor, he reached out to Dr. Lawrence W. Shaw, the acclaimed Scottsdale, Arizona plastic surgeon to fill the role.
For Engelman and his business partners, Lawrence Shaw was an obvious choice.
Dr. Shaw, owner of The Shaw Center for Aesthetic Enhancement and a double board certified physician, has more than 25 years of experience in his specialty practice and has been named one of the Best 100 Plastic Surgeons in America. His local bona fides are just as impressive. He has received multiple “Top Doc” awards in plastic surgery by Phoenix Magazine and was voted “Best Plastic Surgeon in Scottsdale” by the readers of Scottsdale Magazine.
“We are pleased and honored to have established a professional affiliation with The Shaw Center,” said Dick Johnes, co-founder and CEO of Novo Solutions MD®. “As we begin to introduce new product lines in 2012, Dr. Shaw’s knowledge and experience in the cosmetic and anti-aging industry will be invaluable to the growth of the company.”
In his new role with the company, Dr. Shaw will provide advice and recommendations related to current and new products being developed by the company, as well as working collaboratively in the skin care and plastic surgery markets.
Dr. Shaw said he is equally pleased to be associated with Novo Solutions MD® because the line is unlike any other skin care products currently on the market. The integrated skin renewal products contain the patent-pending NovoSerum™ that is derived from human umbilical cord serum, free of cellular material and rigorously tested to FDA standards.
“In an independent double blind clinical study conducted in 2010 at Northwestern University, NovoSerum™ was found to have a significant increase in collagen and skin matrix production, resulting in youthful, healthful and radiant skin,” he said.
The product line currently includes six exclusive skin care and renewal products for women and men available at select medical offices, upscale resort spas or online at www.novosolutionsmd.com. Prices range from $30 to $170.
