tributor of Restylane and Dysport
  • Allergan, the maker of Botox
  • Ortho-Neutrogena
  • Dozens of other makers of dermatology products
  • These Conflicts Deprive Consumers of Valuable Information

    Big deal, some would say. So these doctors work part of the time for cosmetic companies or device makers.

    The problem is that consumers are spending billions of dollars to get effective anti-aging and cosmetic skin treatments. And because of the potential conflicts by the dermatologists, consumers are not getting good science. Or they're getting biased information.

    Here are two types of information that consumers are not getting, both of which would be very helpful in guiding consumer decision-making:

    1. Negative reviews or reports. Doctors get paid to say good things, not bad things, about skin care products or treatment. So they either promote a product or treatment, or say nothing at all. But consumers should be learning about treatments or products that don't work, not just ones that may work.

    2. No head-to-head studies of devices or products. There are almost no studies that pit different devices, or different skin care products, head to head in clinical studies? Wouldn't it be very useful to know which laser worked best? Or which over-the-counter retinol was most effective? No company will fund those studies, and no doctors will do a study unless they get the funding from the cosmetic companies. So these kinds of studies don't get done.

    Where Can Women (and Men) Get Unbiased Expert Information on Cosmetic Skin Issues?

    So what are the options for getting unbiased and accurate consumer information on cosmetic medicine? Here are two sources of unbiased information on skin care, anti-aging treatments like Botox, fillers, lasers, Thermage, and Sculptra, and skin care products:
