The Experience You Need. A Reputation You Can Trust.

Our study coordinators and clinical investigators perform clinical and preclinical studies during the early development of potential new treatments and during the regulatory approval process. Safety and efficacy of aesthetic surgery treatments as well as pharmaceutical and non-invasive and minimally-invasive device based treatments and procedures are studied.

Our goal is to rigorously test new treatments with the hope that less invasive techniques with fewer adverse effects become more common in the field and increasingly succeed in addressing currently unmet aesthetic needs of patients. We have extensive experience with both pharmaceutical and medical device studies.

This includes Phase II and Phase III FDA multicenter studies for clinical safety and efficacy. We value participation in clinical studies because it allows us to stay at the forefront of aesthetic medicine and provide the best treatments currently available in the care of our patients. 

Agile. Adaptable. A Seamless Partnership.

Our team is agile and adaptable, two necessities when considering a prospective clinical research site. We will work seamlessly with your central Institutional Review Board, and we are proficient with most, if not all, platforms for data recording and query resolution. We know these qualities are essential when partnering seamlessly with corporate sponsors.
