Upon completion of the transaction, the combined company expects to be listed on the NASDAQ exchange.

Brent Saunders, CEO and co-founder of Vesper Healthcare said, the goal is “to build a premier company in beauty health, focused on providers such as estheticians and nurse practitioners, consumers, and partners and we believe that HydraFacial is the perfect platform to achieve this goal.”

HydraFacial possesses industry-leading consumer satisfaction scores and has presence in two high-growth categories within personal care, skin care and, more recently, hair care. We look forward to working with the HydraFacial team to create a valuable, industry-leading, global company in beauty health," said Saunders.
