Murad is partnering with Sesame to introduce virtual clinical skin consultations with board-certified dermatologists and primary care clinicians.
The partnership provides fast and affordable dermatological care, all accessible while consumers shop.
To book an appointment, consumers can select the Virtual Dermatologist Consult on Murad.com under Skin Services. They can choose the provider they would like to see including primary care clinicians (as low as $30) or dermatologists (~$90) and book an appointment with them on Sesame's platform.
During the video session, the Sesame clinician will assess skin concerns, answer questions and provide recommendations. Any prescriptions needed will be sent via the Sesame portal.
Post-visit, patients will receive a promotion to Murad's product offerings with a discount and/or gift with purchase option to complete their skin care routine.
Chase Knight, vice president of partnerships at Sesame, said, "Sesame is committed to increasing access to high-quality medical care—without the high price tag. It simply made sense for us to partner with Murad to deliver dermatologist appointments right alongside the shopping experience—making it easier than ever to receive physician-backed, medical support for skin care concerns."
Paul Schiraldi, CEO of Murad, said, "Murad's purpose is inspired and centered around a commitment to science-backed wellness. We aim to create products and experiences not just for healthier skin but also for healthier lives. Telehealth has experienced rapid growth since the onset of COVID-19, so we wanted to provide our consumers with a platform and service that caters to the evolution of how they see and interact with wellness. As a Dermatologist-led brand, it's important for us to evolve along with our consumers and continue to provide and expand our expertise."
