Growing array of fillers expands options for facial rejuvenation
Dermatology Times
Injectable fillers are used in a variety of ways to improve the appearance of the aging face. However, because not all fillers are alike, it is important for dermatologic surgeons to understand the features and benefits of each product in order to optimize its clinical use, says Dr. W. Philip Werschler. Recently, the armamentarium of injectable fillers was expanded by the Food and Drug Administration's approval of a novel hyaluronic acid gel product that holds the distinction of being the first filler indicated for correcting age-related midface volume loss. Werschler discussed this new filler option and other developments at the MauiDerm 2014 meeting.

Skin Inc.

Role of the dermatologist in diagnosing, managing advanced basal cell carcinoma
Dermatology Times
Advanced basal cell carcinoma is a term whose frequency of usage has increased recently, in part, due to the introduction of the Hedgehog pathway inhibitor, vismodegib. Advanced basal cell carcinoma is comprised of two subtypes of BCC associated with significant morbidity and mortality, locally advanced BCC and metastatic BCC. Some estimates suggest that more than 3,000 deaths may be associated with advanced BCC each year in the United States. Given that most of the advanced BCC that the practicing dermatologist will encounter are not metastatic BCC, this article will focus on the diagnosis and management of laBCC by dermatologists.
