Pliaglis: Wide availability spurring quick adoption
Modern Aesthetics
Nuvo Research and Galderma Pharma recently launched Pliaglis — lidocaine and tetracaine — Cream 7/7 percent in Europe, not long after the agent's March 2013 launch in the U.S. Pliaglis is a topical local anesthetic cream that forms a pliable peel on the skin when exposed to air. It comes as "a thick toothpaste-like paste that is applied in a thick layer to areas prior to injection or laser treatments," explains Dr. Erin Gilbert.

Prescription for procrastination
By Michael J. Berens
Everyone has parts of their job they don't like, and it's only human nature that we tend to put off those tasks that annoy or bore us. One of the principles of good time management is to modulate your work schedule so that you parcel out the tasks you don't like into tolerable chunks rather than let them pile up throughout your work day or week. The idea is to suck it up and do the things you don't like as quickly as possible and then move on to something more challenging, engaging or, dare I say, fun. Most disciplined workers respond well to this approach, but what do you do with the employee who consistently neglects part of their duties?

Research reveals why men 'age better' than women
The Harley Medical Group
New research has shed some light on why men and women appear to age differently — and hinted at what they can do to combat the signs of advancing years. It is well known that the average woman will live longer than the average man. But in terms of appearance, men do not age at a faster rate. According to Dr Sam Speron, a cosmetic surgeon from Chicago, one area where age has a major impact is skin. He says that if you were to put a man next to a woman of the same age, you will often notice the male looks younger.
