PreCision Dermatology

Leading prescription dermatology company with broad portfolio for acne and atopic dermatitis

PreCision Dermatology was founded in 2010 as a spinout from fellow Frazier portfolio company Collegium Pharmaceutical. The company started with three commercial-stage dermatology products based on the company's proprietary foam formulation technology. Over the next three years, the PreCision experienced tremendous growth through both internal R&D as well as a series of acquisitions to become one of the leading commercial prescription dermatology companies, with strong brands such as Locoid, Clindagel, Aurstat, and other products for acne and atopic dermatitis. PreCision was acquired by Valeant in 2014.
