About JCAD



Launched in May 2008, The Journal of Clinical and Aesthetic Dermatology (JCAD) is a monthly peer-reviewed publication for practicing dermatologists published by Matrix Medical Communications in West Chester, Pennsylvania.


As both clinical and aesthetic dermatological procedures are becoming more prevalent in the United States and abroad, today’s dermatologist needs to stay informed on numerous topics related to the field. Patients are becoming more knowledgeable through direct-to-consumer advertising, the internet, and facets within the specialty. This is where JCAD comes in, providing pertinent information on vastly desirable topics from highly influential and respected leaders in dermatology.


JCAD has already become an important addition to the field of dermatology. Under the expert editorial leadership of James Del Rosso, DO , and Philip Werschler, MD, JCAD provides dermatologists with up-to-date, evidence-based information that can be applied to their daily practices.


JCAD offers its readers original research, practical discussion on the latest research, comprehensive review, didactic case reports. and provocative commentaries on contemporary topics relating to both clinical and aesthetic dermatology, written by key opinion leaders as well as practicing clinicians who are “in the trenches”, providing vital balance to the research-rich literature that is already available.


JCAD is the foundation of the multimedia platform from which Matrix Medical Communications provides information to the dermatological community. Given the practice settings and the special interests of more than 14,000 US-based dermatologists, dermatology residents, and dermatology physician assistants, our goal is to provide information in print and online.
