A shift in demographics is changing how dermatologists provide care for their patients, according to an American Medical Association article.
The U.S. Census Bureau predicts that by 2050 nearly 50 percent patients will have skin of color, Sara Berg wrote in the article. As a result, dermatologists and primary care doctors must learn how to treat skin diseases and conditions that are more prevalent in such demographics.
Microneedling may provide a viable alternative to lasers in certain clinical situations, according to Dr. Mara Weinstein Velez, who spoke at the American Society for Laser Medicine and Surgery annual conference in April. Weinstein Velez is a New York-based dermatologist in private practice at Schweiger Dermatology Group.
Microneedling has received considerable hype in dermatology publications, but some physicians question overly exuberant claims due to inadequate clinical evidence needed to establish the technology as a viable therapeutic option for improving the appearance of skin.

Emerging research from an international dataset of pediatric psoriasis patients is revealing much needed information about how children fare with commonly used systemic treatments, says dermatologist Dr. Amy S. Paller, M.D., M.S.
And she says the collaborative effort is powered by pediatric dermatologists — not industry.
New findings from an international research team led by University of North Carolina Lineberger Comprehensive Cancer Center scientists may improve detection of skin cancer that lacks any brown or black color.
The researchers published a study in the journal JAMA Dermatology that outlines key features linked to amelanotic melanoma, a form of skin cancer that lacks the brown or black color that stems from the pigment melanin. Researchers believe their findings could improve detection of this type of melanoma, which is more likely to be diagnosed at advanced stages.
When you're fighting the good fight against annoying acne breakouts, your instinct is probably to de-grease at all costs. The idea of adding oil to your face is crazy right? While it seems counterintuitive, essential oils for acne treatment are actually a thing.
When used topically, "most essential oils work due to their anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties," says Dr. Sejal Shah, a board-certified dermatologist in New York City.
Is there anything more frustrating (as far as skin care goes, at least) than trying to get rid of stubborn zit? Well, yes: Finding out that particular outbreak of acne isn't actually acne at all. Even your trustiest spot treatment won't do anything at all if that pimple on your chin is actually some completely different type of skin condition. In fact, your go-to salicylic could be making your situation worse if you've accidentally self diagnosed incorrectly.

APOSEC is a substance obtained from white blood corpuscles and was developed by a research group led by thoracic surgeon Hendrik Jan Ankersmit, Head of the Christian Doppler Laboratory for Cardiac and Thoracic Diagnosis and Regeneration at MedUni Vienna. Even during its preclinical development, it was demonstrated that the multifactorial agent can be used in heart attacks, strokes, spinal cord injuries and for healing wounds. This promising substance is now in the clinical phase of the approval process that will license it as a new drug for healing external wounds.
Laser and energy devices can drive cosmetic revenue in dermatology practices. But to reap the benefits and avoid what can be serious hazards, practices need to take deliberate and consistent steps, according to Patti Owens, R.N., M.H.A., C.M.L.S.O. (Certified Medical Laser Officer), who has made a career of teaching healthcare providers about laser and energy device safety.
The lone star tick, whose bite causes allergies to red meat, is spreading across more states, according to news reports.
The immune systems of those bitten by the lone star tick are adjusted to react to a protein-linked saccharide found in red meat, The Huffington Post reports. The saccharide is galactose-alpha-1,3-galactose, also described as alpha-gal. The tick bites cause an increase in alpha-gal antibodies, causing immune systems to release histamines after a person eats red meat.
