Research: Current Studies and Clinical Trials
Dr. Chapas and Dr. MacGregor are actively involved in investigating the latest treatments for cosmetic and medical skin conditions. If you are interested in participating in one of our studies and satisfy the general criteria listed below, please call us, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org, or fill our contact form to establish whether you satisfy the detailed eligibility criteria. We are currently enrolling patients for the following studies and clinical trials:
- New Study: Anti-aging cream. We are currently conducting a clinical trial to investigate the effectiveness of 3 different formulations of anti-aging creams to smoothen skin texture and even pigmentation. Participants must be female, live or work in New York City, and be between 20 and 70 years of age. They will be randomly assigned to receive 12 weeks of one of the anti-aging formulas, and will have 3 office visits for photographs and clinical skin assessments.
- Starting Soon: Acne Vitamin Study. We are conducting a clinical trial to investigate the effectiveness of vitamin B5 on facial blemishes. Participants are paid $25 per visit for three 30-minute visits over 12 weeks. Participants must have more than 15 facial blemishes, not currently be on any oral acne medication, not smoke, live or work in New York City and be between 18 and 45 years of age.
- Active Study: Body contouring under the buttocks and sides of the hips. Prospective patients should be female 18-60 years old and should have stubborn ‘pockets’ or ‘rolls’ of fat under the buttocks or sides of the hips. Please contact us for a screening visit to see if you are a good candidate for this treatment. Qualifying patients will receive discounted treatments to compensate for their participation.
- Currently closed but may reopen: Facial wrinkles and aging. Prospective patients should be male or female 30-65 years old and should have undesirable facial wrinkles, volume loss or skin laxity. Prospective patients should have received no injectable facial treatments within the last 3 months and no surgical facial treatments within the last 2 years. Please contact us for a screening visit to see if you are a good candidate for this study. Qualifying patients will receive discounted treatments to compensate for their participation. Enrollment currently closed, but we are still collecting expressions of interest as we may re-open this study as we enter future clinical phases.
