Earlier this year, artificial intelligence scientist Sebastian Thrun and colleagues at Stanford University demonstrated that a "deep learning" algorithm was capable of diagnosing potentially cancerous skin lesions as accurately as a board-certified dermatologist. The cancer finding, reported in Nature, was part of a stream of reports this year offering an early glimpse into what could be a new era of "diagnosis by software," in which artificial intelligence aids doctors — or even competes with them.
In the heart of Sydney's Chinatown, 30-year-old retail assistant Amanda is selling face masks and creams in bright packages. But it is the skin-whitening products that have her attention.
"Chinese people like whitening, [they consider it] beautiful — whitening and brightening because it's good," she says, smiling.
The smile is genuine, as Amanda is a fan herself.
In addition to being bad for your health, did you know that stress is also bad for your skin? As an New York City dermatologist, almost 50 percent of the patients treated have skin issues that are directly related to stress.

A well-known London plastic surgeon claims that many women are developing facial wrinkles "10 years too early" as a result of staring at computer screens and smartphones, according to the Daily Mail.
Dr. Navid Jallali, who operates a plastic surgery clinic in London, notes that many young women are considering anti-wrinkle injections in order to counter the effects of spending a long time on smartphones, tablets and other devices.
A new study finds that a glass of Chardonnay may affect the condition of your skin.
The new research, published in the Journal of the American Academy of Dermatology, found women with certain drinking patterns had a higher risk of developing rosacea, an inflammatory skin condition.
According to the 14-year study, women who drank white wine and liquor were "significantly associated with a higher risk of rosacea."

For the average face, the ideal Caucasian female lip dimensions are a 1:2 ratio of upper to lower lip, and a roughly 50 percent enhancement in total lip surface area, according to findings in a recent article published in JAMA Facial Plastic Surgery.
"Research in facial attractiveness is difficult because of the inherent subjectivity of rating," lead author Natalie Popenko, MS, a third-year medical student at Chicago Medical School, tells Cosmetic Surgery Times.

SDSS aims to develop and foster the highest standards of skin care in the dermatology setting.
In today's not-so-shocking news: People officially are interested in injectable, noninvasive treatments. We've recently reported that, according to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, an estimated 7 million injection procedures, including Botox, were performed in the last year alone. And that number just continues to rise.
According to the experts, they've seen an influx of younger patients opting for preventative treatments sooner rather than later, but how soon it too soon? For the full rundown, we reached out to dermatologists across the country to nail down the exact age, if interested, to begin Botox. The takeaway? Whenever you darn well please. Yes — really.

Efficacy will be evaluated by looking at the proportion of wounds completely healed within 45 days.
