Variety of dermal filler options helps meet specific skincare needs
Dermatology Times via Modern Medicine    Share   Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
With a variety of dermal fillers now available to dermatologists, it may be difficult to choose the right one. When a patient comes in, it is best to discuss what changes he or she is trying to achieve, says Ruth Tedaldi, M.D., who practices in Wellesley, Mass. Patients' concerns vary. For example, some patients don't mind fine lines, while others are bothered by areas of depression, concavities and convexities that cause a more undulated appearance. Some patients are simply concerned about superficial sun damage. "It is helpful to look with the patient in the mirror and ask, 'What is it that bothers you?'" Dr. Tedaldi says. "It is important to make sure your aesthetic sense is synergistic and compatible with the patient's." More

New tax on indoor tanning goes into effect
CBS News    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
An estimated 30 million Americans use tanning beds each year - 2.3 million are teenagers. It costs about $17 a visit. The 10 percent tax will raise that price by $1.70. It is unclear whether that will be enough to discourage indoor tanners. What is clear, new research finds indoor tanning before the age of 35 increases the risk of melanoma by 75 percent. Why? Tanning booths emit both UVB and UVA rays. UVB causes the burn, the UVA the tan. Booths like this emit mostly UVA, but the rays can be 12 times stronger than the sun. More

Cosmetic surgery in China increases as icon of beauty evolves
Miami Herald    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Young adults in cosmopolitan cities such as Shanghai have grown up surrounded by images of beautiful women with Western features. Rail passengers are surrounded by posters of wide-eyed supermodels, and larger-than-life billboards for the Zara and H&M clothing stores line the streets of Shanghai's upscale Pudong district. In the Shanghai shop that sells Barbie dolls, workers acknowledge that Caucasian Barbies sell well, but dolls with Asian features "just sit on the shelves." It's no wonder, then, that by the time women in China reach their 20s, many are seriously considering cosmetic surgery, and the explosion of wealth in China has put it within reach of many of them.

Medical News Today    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
A new study by researchers at NYU School of Medicine found that UVA radiation damages the DNA in human melanocyte cells, causing mutations that can lead to melanoma. Melanocytes, which contain a substance called melanin that darkens the skin to protect it from the ultraviolet rays of the sun, are more vulnerable to UVA radiation than normal skin cells because they are unable to repair themselves as efficiently.
