How to improve the dark circles under your eyes
By Dr. Jonathan Kaplan
There are several ways to treat dark circles under your eyes, some better than others. But before you can treat it, you have to understand why you have the dark circles. Understanding the underlying cause will help you and your plastic surgeon find the best treatment. Most patients automatically think the dark circles are from allergies or small blood vessels called capillaries just underneath the skin.

Cosmetic surgery: Increased costs and reduced choice
Female First
New research reveals that the proposed European Union legislation to end free consultations for cosmetic procedures would restrict patient choice and drive up the cost of treatment. On average, a patient considering a surgical cosmetic procedure in the U.K. has four consultations with a surgeon before deciding on their provider. The proposed ban on free consultations, which will force patients to pay to meet a surgeon, is likely to result in patients undertaking fewer consultations — ultimately reducing patient choice.

Fox News
Despite being chronically sleep-deprived and frequently hungover, not to mention regularly stressed by the 13-hour days he puts in as a banker in Manhattan in New York City, Nick — not his real name — looks remarkably well-rested and considerably younger than his 31 years. His secret? Six months ago, Nick went to New York City–based plastic surgeon for neck liposuction, a half-hour procedure that yields a more dramatic jawline.

The Huffington Post
If you feel like you're already doing everything you can to get clear skin — eating right and using good-for-you skin care products — yet ... you're still battling blemishes, acne or eczema or other skin issues that just won't die, you could actually have an allergy to gluten.

Melanoma on rise among children
Dermatology Times
While still rare, the incidence of melanoma in children is trending upward, according to researchers who presented their findings at the annual meeting of the American Association of Cancer Research. Using data from nine U.S. cancer registries, investigators with the Brown School at Washington University in St. Louis and Harvard University, Cambridge, Mass., found the incidence of childhood and adolescent melanoma has increased an average of 2 percent per year from 1973 to 2009, according to the study abstract.

Mutations in ATRX are associated with X-linked mental retardation, various cancers and developmental disorders, but the cellular functions of ATRX are still unclear.

The debate over stem-cell face-lifts
The New York Times
The term "stem-cell face-lift" is something of a misnomer. A conventional face-lift requires surgically cutting, lifting and sewing sagging skin, while this procedure is typically nonsurgical, involving fat injections designed to plump up the skin and restore the face's youthful volume.

Makeup challenges automated face recognition systems
SPIE
The accuracy of face recognition systems has rapidly increased over the past decade, primarily due to robust feature representation and matching techniques. These methods are resilient to variations in facial pose, expression and illumination. However, there are additional factors that compromise the use of these systems in security applications. These include aging — a natural biological change — and plastic surgery — a medically induced change — both known to reduce accuracy.

Gene therapy may benefit patients with scleroderma
Dermatology Times
Clinicians may one day be able to treat scleroderma more effectively, as researchers have uncovered how gene expression signatures can identify patients who respond well to particular therapies. Investigators with Northwestern University's Feinberg School of Medicine, Chicago, conducted a small pilot study to assess patients’ response to therapy with mycophenolate mofetil. Patients whose conditions did respond to the treatment were classified in the inflammatory gene expression subset, according to a news release.
