Protection from UV rays provided by circadian rhythms in skin stem cells
Medical News Today
Human skin must cope with UV radiation from the sun and other harmful environmental factors that fluctuate in a circadian manner. A study published by Cell Press in the journal Cell Stem Cell has revealed that human skin stem cells deal with these cyclical threats by carrying out different functions depending on the time of day. By activating genes involved in UV protection during the day, these cells protect themselves against radiation-induced DNA damage. The findings could pave the way for new strategies to prevent premature aging and cancer in humans.

How many cosmetic procedures can be done at once?
Dr. Jonathan Kaplan
I often have patients in the office or at a seminar ask, "How many cosmetic procedures can be done at once?" And the short answer is, "It depends." The longer answer revolves around a few things. First, are the areas of the body that you want to treat in close proximity? Second, how much time can you take off work to recover? And lastly, how many procedures is your plastic surgeon comfortable performing at once? I'll address each of these questions below.

Do cosmetic procedures help patients feel better?
HealthCanal.com
Despite the rapid rise in facial cosmetic procedures, there are few studies that investigate their psychological impact on patients, especially among those who undergo minimally invasive procedures using botulinum toxin and fillers to address wrinkles. According to a systematic literature review by researchers with the Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania, published in JAMA Dermatology, limited research does suggest that a number of psychosocial areas improve after patients undergo facial cosmetic procedures.

Botox as a career-builder for boomer men
MarketWatch
Dr. David McDaniel, a dermatologist in Virginia Beach, Va., recalled an awkward scene a while back when a husband bumped into his wife at McDaniel's office. Both were there for Botox, but the husband hadn't told his wife he was getting treated.

Cosmetic facial procedure may not improve quality of life
Counsel & Heal
Botox won't actually make you feel better about yourself, a new study suggests. Despite the rapid rise of facial cosmetic surgery, researchers say there is limited evidence showing that these procedures actually help improve quality of life. While there are some studies that suggest that a number of psychosocial areas improve after patients undergo facial cosmetic procedures, researchers say those studies are weak because they often lack control groups or don't follow patients over time.
