Cosmetics and Dermatological Problems and Solutions: A Problem Based Approach

By Dr Zoe Diana Draelos

Cosmetics for skin, hair, and nails play a vital part in the management and treatment of many dermatological conditions; unfortunately, they may also at times be the cause of some dermatological problems. They are therefore subjects where dermatologists need to be aware of the major commercial developments taking place, in addition to the many common Over The Counter products already available, in order to be vigilant in checking the possible benefits or disadvantages for patients. This text takes a serious look at the integration of skin care products, cosmetics, hair adornments, and nail cosmetics in the daily practice of dermatology, expanding the realm of disease treatment beyond diagnosis and treatment into the maintenance phase of healthy skin, hair, and nails.

New treatment options bolster cosmetic laser industry    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Despite the recent economic downturn, the demand for non-invasive cosmetic procedures is growing with the number of procedures performed up by 5 percent in 2010, according to a recent survey. For most in the industry, an increase in these non-essential treatments during lean times seems counter-intuitive. However, a number of factors—both patient- and technology-driven—have converged to create a perfect storm of opportunity in this growing sector of the medical laser industry. As the economy continues to percolate with sparks of job growth and consumer spending, there is strong indication this upward trend will continue. More
