WAYNE, Pa., March 4, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Cutanea Life Sciences, Inc. (CLS), an emerging U.S. prescription product development company, formally unveiled its new digital presence,, to the dermatology community in conjunction with this winter's annual gathering of dermatologists from the U.S and around the world.  CLS has a stream of innovative product candidates in different stages of development that cover an array of skin conditions, including acne, rosacea, psoriasis and warts caused by human papillomavirus (HPV).

CLS's new digital presence demonstrates the company's intent to change the way that customers think about a valued dermatology partner.  CLS believes that it can make an impact in the current state of dermatology practice through its commitment to focus on unmet and underserved patient needs. In turn this will help medical professionals optimize their practice time through CLS products and services.

"Our goal is to address the unmet and underserved needs of patients and health care professionals in the dermatology market," said Robert J. Bitterman, Sr., President and Chief Executive Officer of CLS. "Undesired skin conditions can impact a person's health, appearance and self-esteem. Medications which are safe, effective, convenient and affordable are needed to better manage and control various disorders so patients will not be troubled by the psychological burdens of these conditions."

CLS management has an experienced team well-versed in the development and commercialization of dermatologic therapies, validated by a long history of successful product launches in the U.S.  Over the past few decades, CLS professionals have played a critical role in securing U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) clearance leading to the introduction of numerous new, highly recognized pharmaceuticals and medical devices.  

Maura Flynn, President, 2015-2016 of the Dermatology Nurses Association, stated: "The DNA welcomes a forward-thinking organization like Cutanea Life Sciences whose expertise, innovation and commitment will bring value to their efforts to provide quality care. Promoting excellence in dermatologic care is the core purpose of our organization."

Rosacea is one of the more difficult skin disorders to manage and control. "The estimated 16 million Americans who live with rosacea will always benefit from education, information and hopefully improved treatments to manage this widespread but poorly understood skin disorder," said Samuel Huff, Executive Director of the National Rosacea Society. "I am pleased that Cutanea Life Sciences is addressing these needs."
