Psoriasis is a common skin disorder that causes the skin to go through its life cycle more quickly than usual. The development of psoriasis patches near a skin injury is known as the Koebner phenomenon.
Actinic keratosis treatment using microneedling followed by photodynamic therapy at a 20-minute aminolevulinic acid incubation time is considerably shorter, about as effective and less painful compared to conventional photodynamic therapy treatment, according to a recently published study in JAMA Dermatology.
Photodynamic therapy with one hour aminolevulinic acid incubation is a conventional approach in actinic keratoses field therapy.
Dermal fillers that include physicochemical properties proved to be effective in reducing acne scarring without compromising natural facial dynamics, researchers reported at the 2017 American Society for Dermatologic Surgery annual meeting in Chicago.
EltaMD UV Elements Broad-Spectrum SPF 44 is a 100% physical sunscreen with zinc oxide and titanium dioxide in a tinted, moisturizing base.

Red has never signified calm and tranquility. So when it's the shade your skin has taken on, whether all over or in smaller patches, you need to act: "Redness is an indication that there's inflammation in the skin and blood is rushing in to try to heal it," says Dr. Joshua Zeichner, the director of cosmetic and clinical research in dermatology at Mount Sinai Hospital in New York City. The redness may be minor at first and easily covered with foundation, but like a smoldering fire, if you ignore it, things will escalate.

Sunburn is a skin injury caused by heat and radiation. A first-degree burn affects the top layer of the skin and causes redness, slight tenderness, and may cause light peeling of the skin within 24 to 48 hours after injury. A more serious sunburn, known as a second-degree burn, causes damage deeper in the skin. This type of burn may cause blisters to form and takes longer to heal. The blisters usually appear a few hours after sunburn occurs, but sometimes they can take up to 24 hours to develop.

With new uses of Botox Cosmetic being explored every day (like a cure for depression, a temporary fix for a gummy smile and the unfortunately named Scrotox), it's hard to believe the drug isn't already approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration for all of its many indications. Even though the substance has been around since the '50s and '60s, it was only in 2002 that Botox Cosmetic received approval for treating frown lines and facial wrinkles. Now, the FDA has approved the brand for use to treat forehead lines as well, making it the only neuromodulator on the market approved for use in wrinkles in three areas of the face — forehead lines, crow's-feet and glabellar lines.
Sad but true: Bacne happens. Those pores deep down your back get clogged, too. Luckily, Elizabeth Hale, a dermatologist in New York City, has helpful advice on how to treat (and prevent) backside breakouts. "One of the most common causes of back acne is sweaty clothes," says Hale. "Hair follicles in the back can trap sweat and bacteria and cause breakouts, so the first thing is to get out of that sweaty sports bra after the gym."
