First-Ever Standardized Scales to Measure the Skin's Aging Process Are Introduced at the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery's Annual Meeting
Date:5/4/2009

The Merz Scales(TM) are the most comprehensive rating system to be developed in the field of aesthetic dermatology in more than 34 years

LAS VEGAS, May 4 /PRNewswire/ -- The Merz Scales, the first standardized, comprehensive rating system to measure the skin's aging process, were introduced today to the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery at its annual meeting in Las Vegas. Developed by a leading team of multidisciplinary experts to "establish a universal language of aging," The Merz Scales address the unmet need for an educational tool to facilitate communication between physicians and patients. While the scales do not diagnose or treat any particular conditions, they serve as a platform to discuss the aging process.

"The appearance of aging skin is an area of concern for most everyone. Changes in the anatomy of the skin are the most telltale signs of the aging process," said Corey Maas, MD, a Merz Scales' investigator. "Until now, there were no validated standards for objectively measuring the effects of aging on skin. The Merz Scales provide a common language for both patients and physicians to assess the skin's aging process."

The Merz Scales, including A Validated Brow Positioning Grading Scale; A Validated Grading Scale for Forehead Lines; A Validated Lip Fullness Grading Scale; A Validated Grading Scale for Marionette Lines; A Validated Hand Grading Scale; and, A Validated Grading Scale for Crow's Feet, were published in a special issue of Dermatologic Surgery in November 2008. The Merz Scales will be on display at the Scientific Exhibit Viewing Station at the ASAPS annual meeting Saturday, May 2 through Thursday, May 7.

Other scales being developed by Merz Pharmaceuticals include measures for glabellar lines, nasolabial folds, decolletage, and facial volume loss.
