As a physician interested in holistic health, it is important for me to address post-surgery care as an important part of preparing for surgery

Nisha Bunke, M.D., scientist, inventor and CEO of La Jolla Vein Care announced today the launch of two all-natural, post-surgery products, RECOVA® Surgery Cream and RECOVA Tinted Arnica Cream. RECOVA was developed over an eight-year period to help patients heal more effectively after vein surgery. Based on clinical experience, the merits and benefits of the ingredients, as well as feedback from patients and doctors over the years, Dr. Bunke created a powerful blend of nine all-natural ingredients (including extracts from pineapple, sunflower oil, grapeseed, arnica, butcher’s broom, and coconut) that would work with sensitive skin and support recovery after surgery.

Patients using RECOVA products experience reduced pain, swelling and bruising after treatment. In addition, the tinted arnica product can conceal bruising, especially in highly visible areas, while providing soothing relief. Previously only sold at La Jolla Vein Care, RECOVA products are now available for sale to the public.

“As a physician interested in holistic health, it is important for me to address post-surgery care as an important part of preparing for surgery,” said Nisha Bunke, M.D., creator of RECOVA. “These products were in high demand from my patients who wanted a soothing remedy and quick healing after surgical vein procedures. What we discovered is that the RECOVA creams can be used to relieve a much broader variety of minor outpatient and cosmetic surgical procedures, as well as bruising in general.”

Dr. Bunke is a respected expert who runs the highest volume vein clinic in San Diego. With her vast network of physicians, she has introduced RECOVA to patients who have had a variety of cosmetic/plastic surgical procedures including botox injections, fillers, sclerotherapy, laser treatments, and liposuction.

Both RECOVA products are created in San Diego, formulated and manufactured in the USA, and are free of parabens, synthetic dyes, and color additives, and never tested on animals. The RECOVA Post-Surgery Cream, original formula is $78 for 1oz, and the RECOVA Tinted Arnica Cream is $92 per 1oz, and available for purchase online.
