New sunscreen labeling aim is protection
USA Today
At first glance, the sunscreen bottles, tubes and canisters on store shelves this spring may not look much different from what consumers have seen in the past. But look closer. Gone are misleading terms such as "waterproof" and "sunblock." Added are warnings that some products don't protect against wrinkles and skin cancer and that others do so only as part of a larger sun-protection plan.

Most nonmelanoma skin cancers treated surgically, regardless of life expectancy
Healio (subscriber article)
Regardless of a patient's life expectancy, most nonmelanoma skin cancers were treated surgically, according to recent study results. "It can be very challenging to decide whether and how to treat patients with nonmelanoma skin cancer who have limited life expectancy, especially when the tumors are asymptomatic," researcher Dr. Eleni Linos, assistant professor of dermatology at University of California, San Francisco, said in a press release.

Study reveals novel mechanism by which UVA contributes to photoaging of skin
Medical News Today
A study conducted by researchers at Boston University School of Medicine provides new evidence that longwave ultraviolet light induces a protein that could result in premature skin aging. The findings demonstrate that aspects of photoaging, the process of skin aging by chronic exposure to ultraviolet radiation, could be linked to genetic factors that accelerate the aging process when induced by the environment.

Microwave technology offers a new approach to excessive sweating
Practical Dermatology
Although hyperhidrosis is estimated to affect three percent of the population, the International Hyperhidrosis Society maintains that roughly half of those affected are not formally diagnosed. Whether or not they have received a diagnosis of hyperhidrosis, patients affected by excessive sweating have had few treatment options that offer lasting efficacy. This has been disappointing for both the patients and providers, as the effects of excessive sweating can be seen in social, professional and other areas of life. A novel treatment for hyperhidrosis, the miraDry System — Miramar Labs — delivers precisely controlled microwave energy noninvasively to sweat glands where accumulated energy results in thermolysis of the glands.

15 things dermatologists think hospitalists need to know
The Hospitalist
Dermatologic diseases tend to receive little attention at most U.S. medical schools — typically only several days of lectures or a few weeks of clinical exposure. "Not surprisingly, many general practitioners may feel unprepared to address hospitalized patients with challenging dermatologic findings," says Dr. R. Samuel Hopkins, assistant professor of dermatology and assistant residency program director at Oregon Health & Science University. Few studies have examined the quality of inpatient dermatologic care. Experts offer tips to assess dermatologic cases.

Why Botox and babies don't mix
WDAM-TV
A tiny dose of toxin is meant to smooth wrinkles by paralyzing certain facial muscles, but it may also paralyze feelings and a parent's ability to connect with her baby. "A huge amount of the attachment babies make to mothers and caregivers is through facial expressions," says Leslie Petruk, who is a child and family therapist.
