Lancôme has appointed Dr. Macrene Renee Alexiades-Armenakas as its consulting dermatologist and skin care authority, working closely with the brand on skin care innovation and sharing her insights on cutting-edge research projects.

"Dr. Macrene is renowned throughout the industry as an incredible resource with an exceptional background," said Xavier Vey, president, Lancôme USA.

As director of her own research clinic and private practice in laser and aesthetic dermatology in New York City, Dr. Macrene continuously examines the latest scientific literature to critically evaluate new molecules for their efficacy and safety. In her new role as Lancôme's consulting dermatologist, she'll lend her valuable insight to a Lancôme peer reviewed study. For the past 15 years, Dr. Macrene has conducted clinical trials in dermatology and laser surgery and maintains a prestigious dermatology practice; this scientific and clinical background allows her to bridge the science behind new technologies to their clinical results on real people.
