KERO-TV    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article

Under California law, medical spas must be at least 51 percent owned by a physician and the remainder by a licensed practitioner, such as a nurse. The new legislation will stiffen penalties for breaking that law. Fines will increase from about $1,200 to $50,000, and those in violation could face prison time of up to five years. More

Isotretinoin quells EGFR inhibitor-related rash
The Oncology Report    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Oral isotretinoin holds potential as a bridge therapy for cancer patients who develop severe rashes during treatment, according to Dr. Milan J. Anadkat. Dermatologists can play an integral role here. "Most oncologists see these patients first, and most oncologists are not enrolled in the iPledge program," said Dr. Anadkat of the division of dermatology at Washington University in St. Louis. He noted that all treatment options are off label because there are no Food and Drug Administration–approved agents to treat chemotherapy-related cutaneous toxicities. More

Finding ways to restore elasticity of the skin is a better goal than is developing and refining ways to tighten the skin, according to Dr. R. Rox Anderson. "The loss of natural skin tension with aging is due to a loss of its elasticity," Dr. Anderson said at the Summit in Aesthetic Medicine sponsored by Skin Disease Education Foundation. "It's the impressive loss of cutaneous elastic recoil with aging that accounts for the effectiveness of Botox, for example. A simple hypothesis is that restoring skin elasticity is a better goal than tightening the skin." More

redOrbit    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Dermatologists love multi-use, multipurpose products, but sunscreen in makeup isn't one of them. There are a number of reasons that makeup in sunscreen isn't the same as applying a good, regular sunscreen. The first is that it's a secondary purpose of the product, meaning the goal of the makeup is to be just that — makeup to cover flaws and unevenness of facial tone. More
