How to Market Nips and Tucks in a Recession
from The New York Times
Looks still matter. That is the message that some cosmetic surgeons, recognizing that their procedures may be a tough sell during a recession, are trying to convey. Appeals to sheer vanity may not be the wisest move right now, so some cosmetic surgeons are asserting that a little lifting, shaping, plumping, smoothing or suctioning may give you an important edge in the job market. Botox is no luxury, the thinking goes, if it helps you land the job of your dreams. More

Enhanced Efficacy of Photodynamic Therapy after Fractional Resurfacing: Fractional Photodynamic Rejuvenation
from PCI Journal
Many nonablative lasers and light treatments are available to reduce the signs of photodamage. A newer technique, fractional resurfacing has shown improvement in rhytides without the prolonged healing time that is necessary with ablative resurfacing. The authors previously reported using intense pulsed light (IPL) with topical aminolevulinic acid (ALA) for treating photodamage, known as photodynamic photorejuvenation. The current study evaluated the efficacy of combining fractional resurfacing and photodynamic photorejuvenation to reduce superficial perioral rhytides. More

Dermatologists Caution That Severe Cases of Psoriasis Can Be Associated With Other Serious Medical Conditions
from AAD
On the surface, the thick, red, scaly, itchy plaques of psoriasis – which have been shown to have a significant negative impact on a person’s overall quality of life – may not appear to pose a serious health risk for patients. However, a growing body of research suggests that psoriasis patients are at an increased risk of developing serious medical conditions, including cardiovascular disease and diabetes, particularly when their psoriasis is severe.

from WCSC
The American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery says more than 80 percent of doctors are reporting increases in non-invasive procedures like Botox that removes wrinkles from the face, and costs thousands less than a face lift. Makeup counters are having steady sales from what economists call a lipstick effect, women buying cosmetics when there's a struggling economy or during emotional times.

Cosmetic procedures among Hispanics, the largest and fastest growing ethnic group in the U.S., experienced the greatest growth: up 18 percent. More

But now, the same technology that keeps people connected 24/7 may help encourage them to apply sunscreen regularly via daily text messaging reminders. More
