Patients diagnosed with melanoma are more likely to have treatment delays if they are nonwhite or on Medicaid, while delays are less likely for patients diagnosed or treated by a dermatologist, according to a study published online Oct. 4 in JAMA Dermatology.
Around twice a month, New York–based dermatologist Dr. Dendy Engelman runs her hands through the lush mane of a New York exec. The woman's hair is perfectly styled and highlighted, and expensive conditioning treatments keep it thick and soft. But that's not what concerns Engelman. She's examining the patient's scalp for the right places to inject syringes of Botox, with a special focus on the hairline. Once she's satisfied with the placements, she'll prick her patient 150 to 200 times and charge about $1,200. Technically, she's blocking the chemical signals from the nerves that stimulate sweat glands, but Engelman has coined this technique Blowtox — a way for the busy woman to keep her blowout perfect for longer.

A retrospective review of several thousand melanoma cases in North Carolina found that Medicaid patients were more likely to experience surgical treatment delays than patients with private insurance, according to a study by University of North Carolina Lineberger Comprehensive Cancer Center researchers.
Treating infants, children and adolescents with laser therapy comes with a very special set of considerations physicians may not associate with adult patients.
While laser therapies can erase scars and other cutaneous deformities, it is not an easy path for pediatric patients. Fear, anxiety and sensitivity to pain present challenges that can make seemingly minor procedures problematic.
The first prospective study evaluating a comprehensive approach to multimodal facial aesthetic treatment shows that combining fillers, neuromodulators and topical agents can achieve significant subjective, objective and psychological improvements, said investigators at The Cosmetic Bootcamp 2017. The research provides compelling data that should help both clinically and in patient consultations, they added.

There are nights when Tanya Mohan can't sleep because the itch is so bad. Then there are the mornings she wakes up to find her bed sheets stained with blood from scratching her skin raw from the night before.
It's not just dry skin the 37-year-old is keeping her up at night — it's atopic dermatitis, also known as eczema. Mohan was diagnosed when she was just a few months old and is the only one in her family who suffers from the chronic condition.
Her family had no idea how to handle her pain, which only got worse as she grew up.

Many moisturizers are greasing your palms — most products that claim to be fragrance-free and hypoallergenic fail to live up to the claim.
Researchers at Northwestern University analyzed the top-selling moisturizers sold by Target, Amazon and Walmart and found that 45% of products that claimed to be “fragrance-free” contained fragrance and 83 percent of products that were supposed to be "hypoallergenic" contained a potential allergen.
It's no mystery that sugar is one of those foods that — much to any sweet tooth’s chagrin — should be enjoyed in moderation. In terms of physical health, too much sugar can mean spiked blood sugar, diabetes, weight gain, and more. As if that's not bad enough, it can also do a number on our complexions as well.
This exact effect has even earned its own nickname — sugar face. Although we'd love to say it's an endearing nickname from your grandfather, it's actually the buzzy internet term given to the way your face looks when its been affected by sugar. The symptoms? Sugar face shows itself as pronounced fine lines or wrinkles; a pasty, less radiant tone; and the worst of the worst — adult acne.
Recent reports that sweaty workouts can cause skin damage and age spots had some workout fanatics wondering if they should cancel their hot yoga and spin classes.
The articles in Allure and Well+Good connected trendy workouts in heated environments to increased skin redness and signs of aging such as wrinkles and age spots.
"Spin instructors and women who were taking hot yoga upwards of five times a week were getting more discoloration and persistent redness than other patients," Dr. Doris Day, a clinical associate professor of dermatology at New York University Langone Medical Center, told Allure.
