Prescribedsolutions is distributed through the offices of 500 dermatologists and plastic surgeons. While the company did not break out figures, industry sources estimates retail sales at roughly $5 million.
The brand was founded in 2004 by two cosmetics industry veterans, Aurelian Lis and former Lancaster executive David May. Among the brand’s products are a DNA repair product, called Stop the Clock Triple Action Anti-Aging Day Cream SPF 50, plus Control Tactics Neurocosmetic Soothing Gel and Body of Knowledge, a slimming cream marketed with clinical evidence of effectiveness. The products are designed to be customized by adding a booster to adapt the product to meet a patient’s need.
