As swimming pools close their gates and the weather becomes too cool for the beach, some of the most fervent sun lovers are flocking to tanning beds to preserve their summertime color.

The melanoma rate among young women nearly tripled from 1973 to 2004, a period in which use of tanning beds increased significantly, a National Cancer Institute study showed. More

Los Angeles Times    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
When doctors, researchers and celebrity lobbyists talk about the amazing potential of stem cell therapy, their discussions usually center on big-ticket items such as Parkinson's, Alzheimer's, cancer and spinal cord injuries. They don't, as a rule, talk about wrinkles and crow's feet. But could stem cells be the next frontier in anti-aging medicine? Though most stem cell therapies are still in their infancy, a small number of plastic surgeons across the country are already offering so-called stem cell face-lifts, cosmetic procedures that use a person's own stem cells to supposedly bring new life to aging, sagging skin.

Web app allows you to preview cosmetic procedures on your cell or computer
Miami Herald    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Want a new nose? Chin reduction? Botox? A South Florida cosmetic surgeon has an app for that. After the success of his iSurgeon app on Apple's iTunes, Dr. Michael Salzhauer of Bal Harbour Plastic Surgery was approached by the United Kingdom's version of MTV to create a similar program for its website. Called "Heidi Yourself," the new online tool lets users see what they'd look like if they changed their body or facial features. The name comes from MTV reality TV star Heidi Montag, who admits to having 10 plastic surgery procedures in a single day. Heidi Yourself went live at the end of August and gets about 200 hits a day. And about half a million have downloaded Salzhauer's free iSurgeon iPhone app since it launched last year, he said. More
