SkinCare Physicians is very proud to announce that Dr. Omer Ibrahim is the recipient of this year’s American Society for Dermatologic Surgery (ASDS) Fredric S. Brandt Grant. Funded in memory of ASDS member and cosmetic dermatology pioneer Fredric S. Brandt, MD, the Innovations in Aesthetics Fellowship Fund promotes and supports the career development of junior cosmetic dermatologic surgeon-scientists focused on cosmetic treatments and patient care. Dr. Ibrahim is one of the three fellows currently enrolled in SkinCare Physicians’ ASDS-accredited Cosmetic Dermatologic Surgery Fellowship Training Program, under the direction of Drs. Arndt, Dover, Kaminer and Rohrer.
Dr. Ibrahim will use his grant to further advance research on the treatment of upper lip wrinkles, also known as smokers lines, which affect mainly women and are among the most stubborn and difficult-to-improve facial wrinkles. He will conduct his clinical study on 10 to 15 subjects using the Fraxel Re:pair carbon dioxide laser and topical poly-L-lactic acid at SkinCare Research near Boston. Drs. Arndt and Dover happily volunteered to mentor Dr. Ibrahim during this very exciting research study.
Congratulations Dr. Ibrahim!
