Psoriasis is found mainly on the elbows, knees, scalp, chest and trunk, and can also affect the toenails and fingernails. It may begin in late childhood or young adulthood and usually continues throughout life. Contact us if you are interested in participating in a study for psoriasis.
RosaceaRosacea is very common and causes redness and swelling on the face. Rosacea may begin as a tendency to blush easily and gradually progress to persistent redness and acne-like bumps involving the cheeks, forehead, chin, and nose. In more severe cases other symptoms include broken capillaries on the surface of the skin, enlarged red nose and puffy cheeks. Contact us if you are interested in a study for the treatment of rosacea.

Actinic Keratosis is most commonly referred to as ‘sun damage’ and presents itself as itchy, scaly spots on the skin.
WrinklesFacial lines and wrinkles are caused by a gradual breakdown of the body’s collagen and the elastin fibers in the skin. No one is immune from experiencing this normal aging process. Squinting, frowning and smiling also inflict stress on the underlying collagen in the skin and accelerate the formation of these furrows. Contact us if you are interested on being put on our waitlist for a study to treat fine lines and wrinkles.
Sun Damage/HyperpigmentationHyperpigmentation is a common, usually harmless condition in which patches of skin become darker in color than the normal surrounding skin. This darkening occurs when an excess of melanin, the brown pigment that produces normal skin color, forms deposits in the skin. Hyperpigmentation can affect the skin color of people of any race. Contact us if you are interested in a study for the treatment of hyperpigmentation.

Tinea PedisTinea pedis or athlete’s foot is a skin infection caused by a kind of mold called a fungus. The fungus causing tinea pedis prefers moist, warm skin; this is why tinea pedis favors the folds between the toes and is often worse in hot weather. In some people tinea pedis can get so bad that blisters form. Contact us if you are interested in participating in a study for tinea pedis.
Acne (Moderate to Severe)Acne is a common skin condition producing pimples on the upper face and torso. Acne is caused by a buildup of dead skin cells, bacteria, and dried sebum that block the hair follicles in the skin. Contact us if you are interested in participating in a study for Severe Acne.
