CYRx MD Announces New Hair Care Product Line

Mayo Clinic trained surgeon, Dr. Steven J. Cyr, of Houston, Texas, has just announced the unveiling of his hair regrowth system as part of his CYRx MD Skincare line. These products include a Hair Regrowth serum with a propriety mix of ingredients that extend the hair growth cycle, an eyelash/eyebrow serum, and a shampoo and conditioner that improve follicle thickness and health. This system can be used in the never ending battle against hair loss and thinning hair that faces men and women alike.

Dr. Cyr started research on his skincare line two years ago in an effort to alleviate the concerns many of his post-operative patients had regarding scarring after surgery. From there the company evolved into a full-service skincare line designed to address the most common and stubborn conditions affecting the skin: Melasma/Sun Damage, Aging, Acne, and Scarring. It began in an effort to treat his wife suffering from sun damage/melasma and his children suffering from teenage acne.

Dr. Steven J. Cyr and CYRx MD Skincare are proud to announce the unveiling of the hair regrowth system as part of the CYRx MD Skincare line.

The products are medical-grade, cruelty free, dermatology tested and free of many of the commonly known irritants such as parabens and sulfate.

“I created this skincare line for my family and patients so efficacy and safety were my primary focus. Not only are they scientifically-formulated and medical-grade but they are also free of common irritants, chemicals, and allergens so nearly everyone can enjoy the benefits of quality skincare products.” ~Dr Steven J. Cyr

The addition of his hair regrowth system includes:

Hair Stimulating Shampoo – Creates a clean and healthy environment for hair regrowth and restoration. Adds fullness to thin, lifeless hair by expanding the shaft of individual hair follicles, leaving the hair with healthy body, volume and shine. Gentle enough for daily use.

Hair Stimulating Conditioner – Nourishing, Panthenol-rich formulation reinforces follicle roots to prevent breakage, building fullness and body to thinning hair.

Hair Regrowth Serum – Contains brandMD®’s HRS-10, a biomimetic peptide combined with red clover extract rich in Biochanin A. This advanced formula supports the scalp’s natural microcirculation to create healthy conditions for new hair growth.

Rapid Grow Eyelash Serum – Clinically proven system utilizing a unique peptide complex, rich in Biochanin A, promotes thicker, fuller and more luscious lashes with results visible in just 2 weeks of regular use.

The roll out of his hair regrowth system is slated for January 2020.

Cover model for the products is Alayah Benavides, former Miss Texas and currently starring in ABC’s The Bachelor. LeAnn Cyr, CEO of CYRx MD Skincare, states that she chose Alayah because of “her long-standing reputation in the community and the charitable work that she has done to help educate our youth on the importance of literacy, in addition to her work to help fund literacy initiatives.”

Paradise in Fiji

Fiji’s Award-Winning Raiwasa Private Resort Emerges In Less Than Five Years As One Of The Most Exclusive, Luxurious & Sought-After Destination Hideaways In The World

      Ideal For Honeymooners, Couples & Executives, Raiwasa Offers Breathtaking Views, Five-StaService, Wide Array Of Activities & Unique Passport To Fijian Culture; Near 100% Of Guests Rate Resort Stay Among Top 10 Travel Experiences

TAVEUNI, FIJI – Sooner or later, the yearning envelops all of us. A yearning to escape from the routines of daily life for places unknown, people unmet and experiences unforgettable. A yearning to reward ourselves for a life well lived and a job well done. A yearning to celebrate our personal and professional accomplishments, indulge our whims, immerse ourselves in another culture, and re-discover who we are and where we belong. A yearning to explore someplace completely different and perhaps even become someone completely different along the way.

Whether you’re a newlywed ready to enjoy a honeymoon every bit as memorable as your wedding itself, a couple ready to re-kindle the passion that made you a couple in the first place, or an overworked executive ready to reward yourself for a lifetime of hard work, there’s one destination that will not only meet your highest expectations but deliver a few you didn’t even know you had: Raiwasa Private Resort in Fiji (

Winner of consecutive Boutique Hotel Awards in 2017 and 2018 boutique, Raiwasa (“looking out to sea” in Fijian) has in a few short years emerged as one of the most exclusive and luxurious hideaways in  the world. An increasingly coveted destination for couples, business leaders and celebrities alike (Paul Simonconsidered his stay there “one of our best vacations ever”), Raiwasa is a private resort highlighted by a luxury villa that’s available for exclusive use and blessed with a breathtaking 180-degree view of the South Pacific’s Somosomo Straight.

Where Indulgence Comes To Stay                                                                                                                                                      

Situated on three acres adorned with stunningly-manicured gardens, Raiwasa is populated by a dedicated staff (including personal 5-star chefs) whose mission is not only to indulge you during your stay but provide you with profoundly special memories you will carry with you for life. On-site amenities include gourmet cuisine served in eight unique dining locations, a private car and chauffeur, a cultural attaché, Fiji trained massage and skin care therapists, private tour guides, activities coordinators and 24-hour security (not that you need it in Fiji!). All three of the resort’s VIP packages include breakfast, lunch and five-course dinners and year-round access to Raiwasa’s amazing three-sided infinity pool.

The ideal by-product of natural splendor and human ingenuity, Raiwasa invites its valued guests to seamlessly transition between relaxation and invigoration by offering such diverse activities as scuba diving, kayaking, fishing, hiking and much, much more.

Life At Its Very Best                                                                                                                                                         

Raiwasa’s Villa features two beautifully-decorated suites that are connected by a central living and offset kitchen area and designed to maximize the resort’s extraordinary ocean and garden views. The master bedroom offers large bi-fold doors that open onto the wraparound deck, while both bathrooms provide twin honeymoon showers and outdoor bathtubs (imagine soaking in the fresh open air with an unfettered view of the stars with the soothing sound of the ocean waves in the background and you begin to get a sense of what everyday life at Raiwasa is like!).

What’s more, Raiwasa provides amazing cultural experiences right in the privacy of the property. Here, you’ll experience the traditional Lovo (underground cooking experience), native Meke (Fijian dance), and a completely authentic Kava ceremony that’s usually reserved for the chiefs and honored guests of Fiji. 

Replete with lush rainforests and pristine waterfalls, Taveuni island invites guests to experience majestic hiking and bird watching, coastal fishing and horseback riding. In addition, scuba diving and snorkeling are only a short 15 minute boat ride away at the renowned Rainbow reef, often referred to as the soft coral capital of the world.  

No wonder a remarkable 99.3 % of Raiwasa’s guests proclaimed their visit as one of the top 10 travel experiences of their lives. And perhaps these comments from a recent visitor best sum up how Raiwasa has captured the hearts, souls and imaginations of so many so far:  “You will not need a vacation from your vacation after staying at Raiwasa, although I guarantee you have never vacationed like this before! The owners and the staff of this exquisite private resort have created a magical world where time stands still, natural beauty surrounds you, disconnection from the outside world is a possibility, connection with loved ones is a reality, and happiness is infectious!”

Family-Owned & Locally-Run

Raiwasa is owned by Patrick and Erika Janin, who discovered Taveuni while taking a break to travel the world after years of hard work and the shock of losing friends to untimely illness. Out of all of the places they visited during their global travels, they fell most in love with Taveuni and the Fijian people – so much so that they celebrated their own marriage on Taveuni Palms.

A successful entrepreneur who founded two medical companies later sold to Johnson & Johnson, as well as an avid scuba diver and world traveler, Patrick Janin came to realize a decade or so ago that “There is much more to life than work and success and money. After losing dear friends to cancer, I sat down with my wife and said, ‘I’m not going out that way.’” They made a decision that very night to embark on an extraordinary year-long journey around the world with their two children (ages 8 and 10 at the time), ultimately visiting some 30 countries along the way.

The experience was nothing less than life-altering. As Patrick says, “It had a profound impact on how I viewed the future. It changed the essence of who I am. Simply put, I think it made me a better person, husband, father, and friend.” Moreover, the experience prompted Patrick and Erika to find a way to offer others a similarly game-changing getaway, even one only lasting days instead of months.

The result: the opening of Raiwasa Private Resort in 2016 – an opening so auspicious the resort garnered a prestigious World Boutique Hotel Award little more than a year later and another one a year after that.

As Patrick sums it up, “There are no words to describe Raiwasa. It must be experienced. It is the future of luxury transformational travel. The food is special. The grounds are full of discovery. The cultural interactions are fascinating. There is an endless array of amenities for all levels of activity on the island. From the first moment of contact to the last wave goodbye, a stay at Raiwasa is designed to enrich and transform a guest’s life not merely in the moment, but a whole life long.”
