Medical Research Trials
Our studies are critical to the FDA, as they approve treatments and devices like top- ical medications, injectables, lasers, non-invasive procedures, and more. But as a patient of ours, there’s nothing to be afraid of. The strict standards of each trial means your safety and health are assured while giving you access to the latest treatments and technologies.
Candidates Who Qualify
Candidates differ depending on the trial being conducted, but typically, if you’re in good health, are over the age of 18, and want to be part of advancing the future of medicine, you’re likely an ideal candidate. However, please be aware that each trial has distinct guidelines, such as strict participation criteria, and requires patients with very specific conditions.
What To Expect
Studies can last 2 – 6 months, sometimes longer. In participating, you may be required to visit our office monthly, take the prescribed medications precisely as instructed, adhere to daily or weekly regimens, and often keep a treatment journal. You’ll always be in the hands of caring professionals dedicated to your safety and health as we help develop products, therapies, and devices for the future of dermatology.
Together with West Dermatology, you’ll help bring the future of skincare to today’s patients. Call (858) 657-1004 to see if one of our studies is a good match for you.
