About Molekül

Arthur Weissmann and Dr. Thomas Mehrel are board-certified dermatologists who each received their medical degree from the esteemed Ludwig Maximilian University in Munich, Germany, where they also completed their Medical Doctorate research theses (the German equivalent of an MD-PhD degree) in Medical Endocrinology.


Both doctors received extensive postgraduate training in Medicine, Surgery, and Dermatology while also accomplishing groundbreaking research. Their findings have been published in leading medical journals and presented nationally and internationally.


Dr. Mehrel was awarded the Fogarty fellowship at the National Cancer Institute in Bethesda, MD. He specialized in molecular biology and genetics of skin cancer before completing his Dermatology specialty at New York University, where he was awarded a Sulzberger research fellowship.


Dr. Weissmann concentrated on skin microbiology and lipid chemistry at the St. John's Institute of Dermatology in London as a fellow of the German Research Council and continued the research at the Department of Dermatology at the University of Munich. He received a Dermatopathology fellowship at New York University and as a faculty member at Mount Sinai Hospital Miami, Dr. Weissmann focused his laboratory studies on skin pharmacology.


Dr. Weissmann and Dr. Mehrel joined in the practice of Dermatology in Miami Beach in 1992. They specialize in dermatologic surgery, cosmetic dermatology, the treatment of acne, and the prevention, reversal, and treatment of aging skin.


In their years in practice they had extensive opportunity to observe patients' responses to and preferences of cosmeceutical products.


They concluded that navigating the maze of the many different cosmetic lines and the multitude of different products within those lines was frustrating to their patients and led to poor compliance with recommended regimens.


The solution:

  • Apply the combined knowledge of decades of research and clinical practice on two continents to the creation of a customized product line that focuses on the essential high quality active ingredients in the right proportions
  • Simplify and clarify the regimen of use and formulate them so that all skin types will benefit.


Thus in 2006 their own creation, the molekül® line of dermatological cosmetics was introduced exclusively to their patients and ever since is enjoying overwhelming success and unprecedented brand loyalty.


Dr. Weissmann and Dr. Mehrel look forward to introducing their molekül® line to all who seek streamlined and transformative skincare.
