    Independent Online
    A sprinkling of gold dust could help beat acne for good. Scientists have developed a treatment that involves coating acne spots with tiny gold nanoparticles, each no bigger than a speck of dust. As the gold is applied, pulses of light are fired at the skin using a handheld probe to make the pores open up and let the gold dust penetrate deep inside.

    3 laser/light devices lead injury reports
    Skin & Allergy News
    Radiofrequency devices, diode lasers and intense pulsed light devices had the most reports of suspected injuries from 1991 through 2013, based on data from a Food and Drug Administration database. During that period, 1,212 medical device reports were submitted for suspected injuries from laser or light device use or malfunction to the FDA's Manufacturer and User Facility Device Experience database as well as another 45 that were excluded from the study because of insufficient data. The FDA requires device users and manufacturers to submit the reports and collects voluntary reports from patients. Each report may contain more than one adverse event.

    An update on management of necrotizing soft-tissue infections
    By Dr. Afsaneh Motamed-Khorasani
    Necrotizing soft-tissue infections, or NSTIs, are fulminant infections that lead to the death of subcutaneous tissues. Severe cases of infection are associated with the risk of mortality, limb loss or tissue loss. Diagnosis at an early stage is important to improve the survival rate. Antibiotic therapy, fluid correction, surgical debridement, wound care and organ support measures could reduce the mortality rate in NSTI. The benefits of novel therapies, such as hyperbaric oxygen and intravenous immunoglobulins, are being explored.

    Localized cryolysis reduced sebum by 40 percent
    Skin & Allergy News
    One cycle of selective transepidermal cooling on the backs of 11 men with healthy, normal skin produced a transient 40 percent reduction in sebum production by sebaceous glands in a controlled pilot study. Sebum production fell significantly by one and two weeks after treatment, compared with production prior to treatment, but by week four, was not significantly different than at baseline, Dr. H. Ray Jalian and his associates reported at the annual meeting of the American Society for Laser Medicine and Surgery. Sebum production did not change significantly on untreated patches of skin that served as controls.

    Are nail salon UV lamps a skin cancer risk?
    The Baltimore Sun
    The ultraviolet lamps used in some nail salons to dry and cure nail polish deliver the same hazardous rays as tanning beds, but it would take many manicures to actually cause damage, suggests a new study. After testing 17 different lamps in nail salons, researchers calculated that it would take between eight and 208 visits — depending on the machine — to damage skin cells in a way that raises cancer risk.

    Healthcare Professional Network
    One of the telltale signs of aging is loose, sagging skin around the neck and décolleté. Some of the most common facial rejuvenation treatments, such as Botox or Juvederm, can do wonders to turn back the hands of time on a patient's face, but they can inadvertently enhance the appearance of age in the neck when the area is neglected.
