Revitalization Partners Secures Funding for Integrated Skin Care

Turnaround Management Firm Will Also Implement the Restructuring Plan for New Mexico-Based Skin Care Company

SEATTLE, WA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- September 13, 2005 -- Revitalization Partners, an international specialty management and business advisory firm based in the Pacific Northwest, has secured funding for its newest client -- Integrated Skin Care LLC of Albuquerque, NM. This capital will be used in part to help Revitalization Partners implement a restructuring plan for this pioneering micro-dermabrasion company.

A turnaround firm that specializes in helping under-performing companies realize their potential, Revitalization Partners was hired by Integrated Skin Care earlier this summer to head up a corporate and debt restructuring process. The firm, after performing situational and market analyses, determined that equity funding was necessary to encourage corporate growth while protecting current investors.

"With the growing popularity of microdermabrasion coupled with the company's unique process, we believe Integrated Skin Care is in a position to become a category leader," said Bill Lawrence, a principal of Revitalization Partners. "Like many of the companies that contact Revitalization Partners, Integrated Skin Care has a viable product, but has been the victim of mismanagement and poor financial decisions. By implementing a new business strategy, we can focus the company to encourage growth and stability."

Integrated Skin Care offers a next generation process for performing microdermabrasion that involves using pure salt and positive air pressure instead of harsh chemicals. This process is less intrusive, takes less training to perform than traditional systems and is completely environmentally friendly. Microdermabrasion is the third most common cosmetic procedure in the US.

Revitalization Partners has also been charged with managing the company and Lawrence will serve as Integrated Skin Care's CEO. Lawrence's previous experience in the beauty care industry includes leading Garden Botanika through restructuring and negotiating the successful sale of the company.
