Lip fillers: They're everywhere these days. My colleagues have them. My friends want them. Even Kylie Jenner's plastic surgeon knows the injectable hype is real. And with such a demand for plumped-up pouts, cosmetic dermatologists (and plastic surgeons) are now having to craft up out-of-the-box treatments to meet patients' specific big-lip needs. Take, for example, the latest lip-plumping procedure making the rounds: the Botox Lip Flip.
A tomato a day may keep the doctor away — recent research in Scientific Reports found that consuming tomatoes decreased skin cancer tumor growth.
The study was based on the theory that pigmented dietary carotenoids in the tomatoes can help to protect against UV light — past human clinical trials have suggested that eating tomato paste daily can have the same effect over time.

Nemolizumab, studied at various doses in a phase 2 trial, improved pruritus in adults with moderate-to-severe atopic dermatitis, suggesting the humanized antibody effectively targets interleukin-31 (IL-31) receptor-A in these patients, according to a study published earlier this year in the New England Journal of Medicine.
Clothes that come with built-in sun protection seem too good to be true. Can you really just throw on a special shirt and be totally protected from UV radiation, no additional effort required?
Actually, yeah. INSIDER asked two dermatologists about UV protection clothing and both of them agreed: Not only do these clothes work, but in a lot of ways they're superior to sunscreen.
A group of scientists at the Vanderbilt University Medical Centre have updated a light therapy to kill off bacteria in skin that causes both skin infections and bacteria.
Time may heal all wounds, but it's not so good at erasing them. Scars occur when an injury slices through the top layer of skin and penetrates the dermis, says Dr. Neal Schultz, a dermatologist in New York City. What happens next depends on your body's collagen response. If it generates just the right amount of this skin-repairing protein, you'll be left with a flat, faint scar. If your body can't drum up enough collagen, you'll wind up with a sunken scar. And if your body churns out too much, you're stuck with a raised scar. That's not to say you'll develop the same type of scar every time you're injured, "but people tend to be predisposed to scarring a certain way," says Dr. Diane Madfes, an assistant professor in the department of dermatology at Mount Sinai Medical Center in New York City.
