Raising eyebrows
Plastic Surgery Practice
When it comes to eyebrows, bushy is back. Going, going, gone are the pencil-thin, overly manicured brows that involved almost daily maintenance with tweezing, waxing, threading or laser hair removal. But what's a patient to do now that his/her natural brows are all but gone or simply too thin? Enter eyebrow transplants. The great majority of which are performed to repair the thin or complete absence of eyebrows due to overplucking.

Nurse injectors offset growing demand for nonsurgical procedures
Dermatology Times
The decision to relinquish control and add a nurse injector to your cosmetic surgery staff can be a hard one, but there are more pros than cons, says Dr. Edwin Williams. Williams spoke to a group of about 150 people during the 9th Annual Vegas Cosmetic Surgery and Aesthetic Dermatology meeting. According to the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, the number of minimally invasive procedures has increased more than 10 percent in the past year, and there were nearly 8.5 million procedures in 2012.

The science of anti-aging skin care
The most important scientific discovery related to topical skin care products during 2012 may have come from researchers at the Karolinska Institute in Solna, Sweden. By using an entirely new experimental approach involving rapidly freezing tiny skin samples and studying them under a low-temperature electron microscope, the team was finally able to describe the stratum corneum at the molecular level. This enables scientists for the first time see how the skin's barrier function works and how it might be circumvented.

Practice cost savings: Supplies, waste, spending oversight
Practical Dermatology
Whether you run a large multispecialty or a small, private practice, managing costs can be a crucial part of controlling overhead and achieving profitability. In our previous article on the topic, we discussed several ways that practices can intelligently and safely save costs. Specifically, we proposed several strategies in the areas of staff and utilities contracts. The overhead costs of most dermatology practices run between 50 and 75 percent, meaning that for every dollar you save you potentially are generating two dollars or more in revenue. Thus, taking the appropriate measures to save money results in greater amounts earned. In this article, we are going to continue along the thread of cost savings and focus on other ways that can be particularly helpful in restraining increases in expenditures.

Case report: Granulation tissue as a rare side effect of isotretinoin treatment
Practical Dermatology
Though a rare side effect, granulation tissue may occur following treatment with isotretinoin for acne vulgaris. Isotretinoin is commonly known for side effects, such as elevated liver enzymes and teratogenicity; however, cutaneous manifestations may appear less often and should be recognized as a potential limiting factor.

5 best with sodium hyaluronate 2013
Truth in Aging
Sodium hyaluronate is one of the few anti-aging ingredients that dermatologists recommend. It was put on the map when The Archives of Dermatology said it is 1 of 3 treatments proven to be clinically effective — the other two were retinol and laser resurfacing. Sodium hyaluronate, or hyaluronic acid, is a naturally occurring and widespread component found within the extra-cellular space within bodily tissues, especially those of the face. Like most things, it decreases with age and, therefore, we need to top it up somehow. Here are the 2013 five best products with hyaluronic acid.

Fillers as alternative to rhinoplasty require caution
Dermatology Times
Patients increasingly are asking for nonsurgical alternatives to rhinoplasty, according to Dr. Steven Dayan, but the procedure is not without potential serious complications. More patients are asking for nonsurgical options because it seems like an attractive, quick fix. Dayan urges caution, however, when using fillers around the nose. Necrosis and blindness are two major complications that can result.

The grassroots effect of social media
By Brigitte Merten
Sometimes the best new thing is actually a fresh twist on a tried-and-true method. Such is the case with social media, which is essentially the 21st-century version of the oldest method of influence in history — the grassroots effect. For businesses, putting social media to work can seem like putting a square peg in a round hole. How do you make your business social, relatable and relational? And are business initiatives something the social community is even willing to embrace?
