Dr. James Beckman Jr, MD is a cosmetic, plastic & reconstructive surgery specialist in Springdale, AR, and has been practicing for 45 years. He graduated from the University of Arkansas College of Medicine in 1970 and specializes in cosmetic, plastic & reconstructive surgery.

Over years of treating severely burned patients, Dr. James Beckman recognized the need for a breakthrough product that can restore mobility, suppleness, and softness to skin grafted hands. He devoted a lot of energy and effort towards developing a state-of-the-art cream that can improve the flexibility and grasp of the grafted skin, thereby allowing one’s fingers to move freely and hold onto objects more firmly. This intervention can be extremely useful for the rehabilitation of burnt hands.
