This web site was initially made by the web master in 1995. Since then, it has been announcing new technology of cosmetic medicine in Japan, especially tretinoin therapy for pigmented lesions. Unlike other countries, tretinoin therapy has been widely used in this country due to its specific effects and successful results on pigmented skin lesions. This time, English version was also produced in order to present the current state of cosmetic medicine in Japan to patients and physicians all over the world. We welcome your comments and questions on this website. (2002/9/9)
