Register for the Orlando Prep Class, June 1
SDSS
Note: Prep Class Fee of $125 has been extended up until the conference date.

The Prep Class is an interactive study group that allows the candidate to further their knowledge development. It's an excellent way to "brush-up" on skills, develop a nurturing mentor relationship with their instructor, and provides more interaction than if the candidate only used the self-study method.

Under your skin
W
Cosmetic surgeons wielding needles simply aren't, as one doctor put it, "wrinkle chasers" anymore. With highly evolved perspectives on what truly constitutes a youthful look, doctors now are injecting a host of compounds to lift, mold and contour. Most visits last no more than an hour, and recovery times are equally swift. It's enough to make a scalpel seem downright crude. So who's shooting what where?

Facelift addiction
HealthNewsDigest.com
Every professional gambler knows when it's time to walk away from the blackjack table. They can just sense when their luck is about to run out. Gambling addicts, on the other hand, never know when to quit until they have lost everything. A newer kind of addiction — one that is no less destructive or tragic — is cosmetic surgery addiction.

Group issues guidelines for treating pediatric acne
Dermatology Times
Newly released expert recommendations from the American Acne and Rosacea Society are the first evidence-based clinical guidelines for the management of acne vulgaris in children and adolescents. There has been little published evidence regarding the safety and efficacy of acne medications for pediatric patients, especially for preadolescents. Under the auspices of the AARS, a panel of pediatric dermatologists, pediatricians and dermatologists with expertise in acne was selected to develop recommendations for managing pediatric acne and create evidence-based treatment algorithms for these patients.

New Jersey plastic surgeons, dermatologists face off over cosmetic procedures
NJ Spotlight
A contentious argument is brewing between the state's plastic surgeons and dermatologists, over who can perform certain procedures — and where they can be performed. Arguing that patient safety is at issue, the surgeons are backing a bill A 1824 and S 2079, that would require some operations — like liposuction, breast implants and tummy tucks — to be carried out in accredited ambulatory surgery centers and hospitals.

Dermatologists discuss treatments for acne in adults
KDKA-TV
When you hear about acne, you might think it's a problem that only teenagers battle. But a lot of adults get it too. And it's just as embarrassing and frustrating, perhaps more so. One reason is the older you get, the tougher acne can be to treat. But if you've tried all the creams and medicines out there and nothing's working, there are a few other alternatives. This isn't your teenager's acne.

Dermatologists say sunlight could prolong life
Professional Beauty
UV exposure could benefit health and even prolong life, according to recent research. Scientists at the University of Edinburgh found that under sunlight a compound is released in the blood vessels that help to lower blood pressure. This could mean a decreased risk of heart disease or stroke linked to high blood pressure, which account for around 80 times more death in Britain than those from skin cancer.

The latest wrinkle in cleaning up social-media pages
Crain's New York Business
Lisa Rosenstein, a new employee at executive recruiter Nexxes Group, recently snapped a quick photo with her soon-to-be boss, Sandra DiFiglia, in Central Park using her iPhone. It turned out to be a good one, but one she wasn't quite ready to upload to her Facebook page. "I wanted to brighten my eyes and skin tone and fix the background," Rosenstein said. "I'm starting a new job, and when people look me up, I'd like to appear as attractive and professional as possible." In today's cyberworld, "say cheese" is becoming a dreaded command. As private is easily made public, and anyone who wants to can follow you virtually with the click of a mouse, people are becoming acutely aware of the dangers of playing candid camera.
