Recognizing cutaneous genetic disorders
Dermatology Times
If it swims like a duck, walks like a duck, and quacks like a duck, it’s probably a duck. Except when maybe it’s not. Occasionally, patients present with common complaints that are just enough out of the norm to suggest something from the gene pool, not the duck pond.

This new filler is an anti-aging game changer
The FDA approved Bellafill, the first injectable that can claim to last safely for five years. With the much more popular hyaluronic acid fillers, people have to go in every six to nine months, which can be tiresome and expensive. However, unlike those short-term fillers, Bellafill is not reversible. The injectable was previously approved for filling smile lines and acne scars, and while it has not been studied as a volumizer for cheeks, it can be used in that area, off-label. It should not be used in the lips.

Skin microbes help clear infection
The Scientist
To understand whether the human skin microbiome can affect the ability of a bacterial pathogen to cause an infection, researchers have had to rely on observational studies. Now, taking advantage of a unique human skin infection model, Stanley Spinola of Indiana University and his colleagues have found evidence to suggest that the makeup of the skin microbiome plays a role in whether an individual can clear a certain bacterial infection without intervention.

Preventing benign moles from turning cancerous
Penn Current
"Fortunately, most of the moles that folks have are innocuous and they sit there your whole life and they don't cause problems," says Todd W. Ridky, an assistant professor of dermatology at the Perelman School of Medicine. "Moles are probably the most common tumor on humans. Benign, but still an abnormal growth." Melanocytes that proliferate benignly cause moles; those that proliferate malignantly cause melanoma, a dangerous and potentially lethal form of skin cancer.

Laser device for hair loss under debate
The Philadelphia Inquirer
To women struggling with hair loss, a recent announcement from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration may have sounded like good news indeed: Official sanction for another new laser device that promises to stimulate hair growth. Alas, the FDA only said the LCPRO from LaserCap Co. of Cleveland is safe, staying silent on the effectiveness question. Which doesn't mean it doesn't work, but it's no slam dunk, say dermatologists.

ENT Today
Dr. Jeffrey Spiegel, an otolaryngologist and chief of facial plastic and reconstructive surgery at Boston University School of Medicine, had been following the progress of the fat-dissolving deoxycholic acid injection for years.

Risk-free collagen regeneration
Lasers, ultrasound, radiofrequency, microneedling — all have been used to injure the skin and induce collagen regeneration. While these modalities are generally considered safe and effective, scarring and hyperpigmentation are possible adverse events. Now a new technology — nonthermal pulsed electrical fields — offers the possibility of skin rejuvenation without tissue injury, minimizing the risk of scarring and pigmentation problems.
