There is a positive relationship between attitude toward aesthetic dermatology treatments and emotional well-being, according to a study published online in the Journal of Cosmetic Dermatology.
Dr. Maria Covadonga Martinez-Gonzalez, a dermatologist in private practice in Oviedo, Spain, and colleagues surveyed 770 Spanish adults using the Aesthetic Dermatology and Emotional Well-Being Scale.
Dr. Brian Gastman, who specializes in treating melanoma patients, says it's hard to argue against the results of a herculean effort — a multi-institutional, prospective, randomized phase 3 study that shows lymph node dissection isn't the only, nor possibly the best option for melanoma patients with sentinel lymph node metastasis.

An Albury dermatologist has welcomed a recent listing on the Pharmaceutical Benefits Scheme as "game-changing" for patients living with a rare and painful skin condition.
Humira, or adalimumab, a monoclonal antibody drug that works to support the immune system, was listed on the PBS in June.
It is used to treat hidradenitis suppurativa, a chronic inflammatory skin disease that causes painful lumps to form where skin rubs, like the armpit and groin areas.
Irene Grigoris of Albury Dermatology described the condition as "debilitating" and the cause of emotional stress for those living with it.

You've heard it hundreds of times: Extending time between shampoos preserves your color, lets your scalp's natural oils hydrate the hair, and minimizes heat-styling damage. Problem is, what's good for your hair isn't necessarily good for your scalp, and an unhealthy scalp eventually affects the quality of new hair growth. "I've seen a steady uptick in patients who come in complaining of chronic scalp irritation, hair breakage, and shedding — issues largely rooted in underwashing and overusing styling products," says Dr. Shereene Idriss, a dermatologist at Union Square Laser Dermatology in New York City. So how you do reconcile the needs of your hair with the care of your scalp? It's not that hard. Start by following our regimen here.
