Skin aging: Genetic nuances
Dermatology Times
There are two distinct processes by which skin aging occurs — intrinsic and extrinsic aging, says Dr. Jennifer Linder, Linder Dermatology and Skin Cancer Center, Scottsdale, Arizona, and assistant clinical professor of dermatology at University of California, San Francisco. Intrinsic factors are only responsible for only 10 percent of skin aging and based on DNA and gene expression. "Certain changes take place in the skin naturally due to the passage of time, but genetics also play a role in intrinsic aging," says Linder.

The molecule is a type of fatty chemical called lysophosphatidic acid and when the melanoma cells come in contact with the molecule, it creates a signal that prompts the cancer cells to travel and spread in the body.

Older workers turning to plastic surgery to enhance image
Surgical Products
After the recession hit, business at Dr. Mary Lee Peters' plastic surgery practice grew steadily. The downturn brought new types of patients to her Seattle office — people with severance packages who were still smarting from layoffs and too much time on their hands. Several put the money towards cosmetic surgeries and Peters went to work helping them look "fresher" for their job interviews, she said. With a growing number of baby boomers postponing retirement, venturing back into the job market or striving to retain their standing at work, more and more seniors are turning to cosmetic enhancements to gain a competitive edge.
