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, June 11 /PRNewswire/ -- The Merz Scales, the first standardized, comprehensive rating system to measure the skin's aging process, were presented at THE Aesthetic Show 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.

"In recognizing the need for a standardized, validated, consistent method to measuring the skin aging process, Merz set forth to revolutionize the aesthetic industry with the creation of The Merz Scales," said Mikael Svensson, vice president of medical and aesthetic dermatology at Merz. "The Merz Scales exemplify our commitment to the science of aesthetic medicine."

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.

Other scales being developed by Merz Pharmaceuticals include multiple additional facial scales.
