Dermatology Times
A novel compound reduces oxidative stress that results in the loss of pigment in hair, signaling a potential treatment breakthrough for gray hair and vitiligo, according to results of a study. Researchers with E.M. Arndt University, Greifswald, Germany, and colleagues analyzed 2,411 patients with vitiligo. Among those patients, 2.4 percent had strictly segmental vitiligo and 3.2 percent were diagnosed with mixed vitiligo, which is strictly segmental vitiligo and nonsegmental vitiligo, according to a news release.

Frotox: New alternative to Botox
Wetpaint
Cosmetic surgeons have chills about a new procedure that might just freeze out Botox. The newest cutting edge technology to come down the pike is being billed as a gentler, more natural version of Botox.

MobiHealthNews
Medical peripherals can combine with a smartphone to create the function of an ultrasound machine, an EKG reader or an otoscope, to name just a few diagnostic devices. But without buying anything extra, nearly every consumer mobile device has a camera of some sort built-in. That means that when it comes to dermatology, most patients have, right in their pockets, the tools to gather much of the data their doctor needs to treat them.

Those taking the tablets from hair care firm Viviscal — containing the protein AminoMar C — every day saw their hair loss reduced by a fifth after three months.
