A Look into Azul SkinHealth: Our Story
- Posted on: Feb 5 2018
How many half-empty bottles of skincare products do you have in your bathroom cupboard right now? If you’re anything like most people, there are probably quite a few! It’s a common story: someone buys a skincare cream that promises incredible “rejuvenating effects” or “magical skin transformation” (only to be disappointed when it doesn’t deliver the results promised). That’s completely understandable, the marketing strength that’s put into flashy skincare products is fantastic. The problem is that, most of the time, the marketing is better than the products themselves.
This was certainly the case when Dr. Patrick Flaharty started out in plastic surgery twenty years ago. The market was littered with skincare products, of varying quality and effectiveness. For Dr. Flaharty, the truth was that none of them were great. As he gained more and more experience as a facial plastic surgeon, he realized that most of these products especially fell short when it came to use after having a facial rejuvenation treatment. After an intensive cosmetic procedure, you temporarily have specialized skincare needs, as any amount of irritation can have a major impact on your final results. When it came to the standards of Azul, the vast majority of skincare products just didn’t cut it.
So, Dr. Flaharty started on a quest to find skincare products that did exactly what was needed, providing rejuvenating and anti-aging effects while also being gentle enough to use after facial surgery. Thankfully, he had a remarkable ally on this journey: his wife Dr. Kristen Flaharty. Being a seasoned pharmacist and pharmaceutical product development professional, she was also frustrated with the state of affairs of the skincare product market. There were endless products being sold that promised results simply not backed up by science. So, the solution to their problem? To make their own skincare products, of course!
Over many years, Dr. Patrick Flaharty had built Azul into a trusted cosmetic surgery name. With Dr. Kristen Flaharty’s pharmaceutical experience, they knew they could create state-of-the-art, science-based Azul skincare products that would not just deliver on expectations, but exceed them. Together, they started a boutique skincare manufacturing company and named it Trilogy Laboratories, after their three daughters. It was here that the Drs. Flaharty started to develop skincare products that would meet the post-surgical needs of Azul patients, as well as those simply wanting outstanding skincare products that actually work!
Today, Trilogy Laboratories produces all of Azul’s premium skincare products, ranging from anti-aging creams to mineral makeup. The product line is broken up into five parts: Azul Medical, Azul Blue Diamond, Azul for Body, Azul Mineral Makeup, and coming soon–Azul for Men. Each line is specially designed to address specific skincare needs, enhanced with natural botanicals and other scientifically proven ingredients to truly deliver the results promised.
