Headquartered in San Diego, CA, RECOVA® is the creation of Dr. Nisha Bunke. Dr. Bunke is a leading vascular physician who specializes in minimally invasive procedures for varicose veins. Inspired by the desire to promote healing and reduce bruising after surgery for her patients, Dr. Bunke sought to create a safe recovery cream that leveraged the healing power of natural ingredients. Over the years, she has collaborated with pharmaceutical scientists to create the perfect solution. Based on clinical experience, as well as patient and physician feedback over eight years, Dr. Bunke and her team created a powerful blend of natural ingredients to support recovery and nourish the skin after vein surgery. From this emerged different RECOVA® creams to address bruising and skin irritations for people with different sensitivities.
