Brief Summary:
A single site, double-blind, randomized, placebo-controlled, clinical study comparing the difference between a novel healing gel and a placebo gel on post laser-resurfacing chests.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Exposure Laser Other: TR987 Gel with Silon Bandage Other: TR987 without Silon Bandage Other: Placebo Gel with Silon Bandage Other: Placebo Gel without Silon Bandage Not Applicable

Detailed Description:
This is a double-blind, randomized, placebo-controlled, chest clinical study with a single study site. Forty subjects will receive fractionated CO2 laser resurfacing of the chest. . Immediately following the procedure (Day 0), postoperative gel randomized to the chest (TR-987 or placebo), will be applied with a thickness of 1-2 mm by a non-blinded coordinator, along with a split-chest Silon TSR bandage. Subjects will return for follow up on Day 1, with the gel and split chest Silon TSR© bandages applied by non-blinded coordinator during visit, with further follow-up on Days 6, 8, 10, 13 and 28. Both subjects and evaluating investigator will be blinded to randomization schedule (performed by an unblinded coordinator). Subject will apply gels and split chest Silon TSR© bandages at home on Days 2, 3 and 4 when not visiting clinic.

  • A subject with known allergy or sensitivity to propylene glycol or any other ingredient of topical TR-987 or placebo.
  • A subject receiving any topical products containing alpha-hydroxy acids, salicylic acid, and vitamins C or E (includes derivatives thereof) on the chest within 14 days prior to or during the study period, other than the study products
  • A subject receiving any investigational drug and/or has had a microdermabrasion (light or medium skin peel) treatment on their chest within 30 days prior to or during the study period
  • A subject using any topical tretinoin product or derivative on their chest within 12 weeks prior to or during the study period
