SALT LAKE CITY, UT--(Marketwired - Apr 17, 2013) - Candessa Surgical & Laser Aesthetics has been helping patients prepare for and recover from surgery for the last four years. The medical spa is associated with Dr. J. Gregory Kjar's Utah plastic surgery practice and is located in the same office for the convenience of Dr. Kjar's patients. Recently, Candessa Surgical & Laser Aesthetics launched an online store, allowing clients to purchase products without the need to visit the practice.

Candessa Surgical & Laser Aesthetics combines the practice of medicine and spa therapies in one treatment center. Offering over 330 products, they specialize in treating body and skin conditions in conjunction with physician-supervised aesthetic procedures. Candessa strives to have their patients looking and feeling their best after their cosmetic treatments.

At Candessa, specially-trained estheticians work closely with Dr. Kjar's patients to provide them with superior postoperative care. Plastic surgery patients are accompanied through each stage of the recovery process to optimize the results of their procedure. According to Medical Spa Manager Mallory Stahl, patients also receive complimentary products and treatments to introduce them to the skin care products available through the online MedSpa store:

"Patients receive high quality, medical grade products and treatments to help aid in their recovery and enhance their results. We include two Lymphatic Drainage Treatments with all surgeries to give their bodies' immune systems a healthy boost and also time to relax after surgery. For patients who have had more intense incisions, we provide the NewGel+ Scar Recovery product which helps prevent and improve scarring from the surgery. If the patient has had surgery on the face, we send them home with our Medical Grade Candessa Aesthetics skin care line."

Through the new online store, patients can purchase medical grade skin care lines, including products from the gLo therapeutics and Candessa Aesthetics lines. Mineral makeup is also available through Jane Iredale Mineral Makeup.

Dr. Kjar, a Utah plastic surgeon, has found that both women and men have concerns about skin texture, sun spots, wrinkles, pigmentation, and acne. As a result, he founded Candessa Surgical & Laser Aesthetics to offer his patients a variety of non-surgical treatments ranging from exfoliation to dermal fillers such as Juvederm® and Sculptra®. Candessa's medical grade product lines were created to help Dr. Kjar's clients further enhance the results of these skin treatments.

Candessa Surgical & Laser Aesthetics is committed to client satisfaction, whether the client is purchasing a medical grade moisturizer or a makeup brush. "We strive to get the best results by constantly updating our lasers, treatments and product lines," says Dr. Kjar. All product orders received during business hours ship within 24 hours of the order and can be purchased online via Visa or Mastercard.
