Sebacia, Inc., a privately held commercial stage dermatology and aesthetics company, has provided a business update, first announcing an update to its leadership team. Chuck Abraham has been appointed chief executive officer to lead the company's commercial strategy and execution, including the planned U.S. commercial launch of Sebacia Microparticles for treatment of acne.
