What happens when tattoo ink is injected into your skin? Most of it remains firmly lodged there, but some pigments travel to lymph nodes or even destinations in your body that are farther afield. All the while, you are left sporting a new tattoo.
From elaborate designs and sports team badges to the names of loved ones, tattoos come in all shapes and sizes. Their popularity has increased in the past 20 years, with 29 percent of the population of the United States reporting to have at least one tattoo.
But the inks used in tattoos are actually not developed for use in humans.

Identification of allergens by immunoglobulin E testing improves outcomes in atopic dermatitis, according to a study published online June 20 in the International Journal of Dermatology.
Brett M. Will, from Georgetown University in Washington, D.C., and colleagues retrospectively assessed affected body surface area at first presentation, IgE quantitative assaying of allergens classes, and total IgE concentration for 54 patients with atopic dermatitis.
Long-term data for dupilumab in atopic dermatitis (AD; ICD 10 code L20) revealed at the American Academy of Dermatology 75th Annual Meeting reflect safety, rapid relief of troublesome symptoms and a long-lived response in keeping with the drug's breakthrough status, experts told Dermatology Times.
When you suffer from psoriasis, you'll try just about anything to alleviate the symptoms of this chronic skin condition — especially if your case is severe. It's no small wonder, then, that the idea of sun or light therapy (also known as phototherapy) as a viable treatment is gaining traction.
But with skin cancer being a major killer among women and men, is this sort of therapy really safe? Considering we've heard anecdotes of people relying on tanning beds for treatment, we had our doubts.
It's summer, the kids are out of school, and that means getting them outside — to the playground, the sports field, or lakeside at a cottage or camp. But such activities also mean exposure to the sun and the damage its penetrating rays can do to children's tender and vulnerable skin.
Dermatologists say sunscreen can be one of the best ways to protect youngsters from painful burns and subsequent DNA damage, but with recent media reports about a spate of adverse reactions, many parents may be wondering whether they should be slathering their kids with the products before sending them outdoors.

Fat freezing, a treatment that can eliminate people's fat cells, is becoming a hot new revenue opportunity for doctors' offices and spas looking to capitalize on Americans' willingness to open their wallets for a trimmer physique.
Dermatology clinics and medical spas are increasingly offering a procedure called CoolSculpting to shrink love handles, flabby tummies and jiggly arms. Doctors' offices are eager to offer the treatment because it represents a way to meet the fast-growing demand for fat-reduction services that don't require surgery.
Putting on sunscreen is time consuming and it can be annoying, but it's crucial to protect your skin from sun damage. While you might consider yourself a sunscreen pro at this point — it's easier than you think to miss crucial parts of your body.
Recent research from the British Association of Dermatologists' Annual Conference found that on average, people missed about 9.5 percent of their faces when applying sunscreen. They most commonly missed their eyelids and the area between the corner of the eye and bridge of the nose, where your sunglasses sit on your nose.
They seek treatment for pain in their joints, strange bumps on their ears, or numb, faded skin patches that won't go away. Sometimes, they have lost feeling in their fingers or toes, or noticed a nerve inside their elbow is inflamed and raised.
The diagnosis is shocking: leprosy. For nearly 100 patients from New Jersey and 200 others in the New York area, the fourth-floor dermatology clinic has been the final stop on a medical odyssey. There, Dr. William Levis biopsies their skin and examines them and gives them the treatment that cures them.
Full cheeks, smooth skin, plump lips: Some people have them naturally, while others get a little help from their dermatologists with dermal fillers. If you can't quite tell which category a celebrity or someone you know fits into, well, that's the point. The latest injectable treatments are easy to get (if not cheap), long lasting, and designed for subtlety. They're also perfectly safe, provided you've done your homework and go to a reputable doctor. If you're curious about fillers, these are the things to know before getting pumped up.
