Obagi Medical Products Announces Long-Term Collaboration with ASPS

Improved Patient Outcomes Goal of Skin Care Research

(press release from ASPS)

The Obagi Skin Health Restoration System helps to correct surface discoloration, blemishes, and stimulate cell renewal to bring back the glow and softness of healthy, younger-looking skin.

LONG BEACH, Calif. - Obagi Medical Products, Inc. (Obagi) announced today that it is providing an unrestricted grant to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons for research on new and improved therapies to enhance healing and patient outcomes. It is hoped that the study of pre- and post-skin conditioning of ablative laser procedures will result in potentially shortened healing rates, reduced adverse events, and less visible scarring. The research may also help identify techniques that may enhance outcomes of those using such products for cosmetic therapeutic purposes.

"This is the first carefully constructed and monitored study conducted to measure results of pre- and post-treatment of the skin," said Brian Kinney, MD, president of the Plastic Surgery Educational Foundation, the research arm of ASPS. "We hope this research will validate anecdotal evidence that such treatment can reduce side effects such as redness and darkening of the skin while enhancing longer-lasting cosmetic results."

Initial study findings are expected to be released at the ASPS annual meeting in San Francisco in October 2006.

"We are honored to have the opportunity to create such a strong relationship with ASPS," said Steve Carlson, Obagi President and CEO. "This collaboration represents an ideal way for both organizations to focus on the science of wound healing and skin health."

The significance of these clinical trials is underscored by the estimated 9.2 million procedures performed by plastic surgeons in 2004, and all indications suggest that these procedures continue to grow at a significant rate.
