While the conspicuous red face and blemishes of rosacea can be embarrassing enough, they tell only part of the story.

Skin patch shows promise as skin cancer treatment
Plastic Surgery News    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Surgery has long been the default treatment for skin cancer. Since the 1930s, a surgical procedure called Mohs micrographic surgery has been used to get rid of skin cancer. There have been a number of new developments in the treatment of skin cancer, but Mohs has remained the most effective technique for many years because it spares a larger amount of healthy skin tissues while extracting the unhealthy ones. But recently, doctors started experimenting with a new skin patch that can completely obliterate facial tumors without surgery. Right now, the treatment has an 80 percent cure rate, but it doesn't require patients to undergo surgery. More

The manicure men
Hindustan Times    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
What's happening to our men? What happened to good old-fashioned stubble, unkempt hair, scowls and the ability to get dressed in under two minutes? And why are so many men going from cowboy to Ken? More men are waking up to the fact that there's more to being a man than shaving and smelling good. They're accessorizing, coordinating colors, investing in statement jewelery, differentiating between corporate and cocktail looks — in short, they're doing everything that was once considered girl behavior.

The term has become shorthand for any artificial modification to the face and body, and in fact, includes a spectrum of scalpel-free cosmetic procedures that has changed the meaning of "having work done." Particularly in Los Angeles — the eye of the needle — lunch-hour nip-tucks and Groupon discounts for Botox have democratized, even normalized, plastic surgery. More
