My name is Guy Cappuccino and I’m a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon and co-developer of the PENSIDA skin care product line. Our story begins almost forty years ago. My decision to become a physician goes back to my earliest consciousness. During my undergraduate studies I received a degree in biochemistry and was involved with laboratory research involving cellular mechanisms and behavior. This research experience laid the groundwork for my future endeavors in cellulite research.
Following medical school I trained in plastic surgery. My artistic side combined with my desire to heal and love for surgery directed my path. As a young plastic surgeon I was proud to be able to offer my patients the cutting edge in plastic surgical techniques and treatments.
There were however several problems that patients inquired about for which I didn’t have a satisfactory treatment namely, rosacea, cellulite, dark circles under the eyes, and stretch marks. One of the most distressing cosmetic concerns was dark under eye circles. I was frustrated and disappointed having to tell patients “I’m sorry, there isn’t any treatment worth offering besides surgery”. My patients deserved better! I have always been driven by a quest for scientific discovery and innovation, and so I embarked on a mission to create a worthwhile topical treatment for dark under eye circles.
