Tired of
FACIAL ACNE?

Learn about a new, no cost research study

About the Study

While nearly every teenager struggles with acne at some point, it’s not uncommon to fight acne outbreaks well into our 20’s and 30’s. While daily acne creams and pills are common, they do not work for everyone, and can sometimes cause uncomfortable skin conditions and other side effects.

Right now, dermatologists at select U.S. centers are conducting a new research study for facial acne. The study is for a new, FDA-cleared acne treatment called Sebacia Microparticles - which are used in conjunction with a laser to help reduce facial acne.

Sebacia Microparticles are tiny gold particles in a solution that are massaged into the skin just before the laser is applied. These gold particles absorb the laser light and heat up the skin pores, which helps reduce excess oil that causes pimples. So, instead of just treating existing pimples, all of the pores are treated which may help prevent new pimples.

Participants in the study will receive the Sebacia Microparticles and laser treatment sessions at no cost.

Why Participate?

If you or your child are 12 - 45 years old and struggle with facial acne, you may qualify for a new clinical research study. The study is for a new, FDA-cleared acne treatment called Sebacia Microparticles - which are used in conjunction with a laser to help reduce facial acne. By joining the study, you or your child will receive:

  • Evaluations of your acne by a local dermatologist
  • Laser treatment sessions and follow-up care at no cost
  • Compensation for time and travel to attend study visits

 



Frequent Questions
Clinical studies or trials are used to learn about the safety and effectiveness of new medications, medical devices, and medical procedures. Although there are many types of clinical trials, all must conform to strict rules set by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). These rules help protect the rights and safety of those who volunteer to take part in clinical trials.
No participants in the study will receive the Sebacia Microparticles, laser treatment sessions, and follow-up visits as no cost.
Yes, as part of the study, your doctor may recommend topical medications (prescription or over the counter), if he or she feels it would be beneficial. You would still need to pay for these topical medications prescribed by your study doctor (as you would outside the study).
The study lasts about 1 year. During this time, you will visit your study doctor’s office up to 9 times for both your laser treatments and follow-up visits.
Yes, you will be reimbursed for your time and travel to attend study visits. Your local study staff will provide you with more details about this if you choose to participate.
As with all clinical studies, your participation is completely voluntary and you may choose to leave the study at any time without any effect on your future medical care.
