In a nutshell

Clinical trials in cosmetic dermatology have some intrinsic limitations. Some of the prerequisites of a randomised controlled trial (RCT) such as blinding, allocation concealment and even randomization are difficult to achieve in cosmetic dermatology. Rigorous product or procedure evaluation is however urgently required. TASCDerm is both quick and simple enough for a busy practitioner to use. As well as practitioners the resulting assessments may also help journalists and even consumers.
