In 1986, Cosmair Canada, agent of the L'Oréal Group, sponsored a survey among Canadian dermatologists to measure the perceptions, attitudes, expectations, and needs of dermatologists regarding cosmetology. Fifteen years later, a new survey among Canadian dermatologists, again sponsored by L'Oréal, tries to capture the evolution and new trends.
