Is science catching up with the hype about anti-aging skin creams and the claims of restorative benefits?
"Maybe," says Dr. Valerie Goldburt of Advanced Dermatology, who indicates that recent research has moved scientists closer to understanding mechanisms of aging, including aging of skin, and the impact different substances have on cells and cellular processes.

A new Cleveland Clinic study underscores the importance of early detection and treatment of melanoma, the deadliest form of skin cancer. The research, published online today in the Journal of the American Academy of Dermatology, indicates that the sooner patients were treated, the better their survival, particularly for stage I melanoma. Using the National Cancer Database, researchers from Cleveland Clinic's Dermatology & Plastic Surgery Institute studied 153,218 adult patients diagnosed with stage I-III melanoma from 2004 to 2012 and found that overall survival decreased in patients waiting longer than 90 days for surgical treatment, regardless of stage.
If you suffer from acne, you know how annoying it is when someone close to you has flawless skin — for absolutely no fucking reason. They don't double cleanse their face every night, they don't layer on an arsenal of serums and potions, and some of the worst offenders go so far as to claim that they just use bar soap. Their clear skin is largely a genetic gift — but that doesn't mean the oily skin the universe gave you is a curse.

Total mole count by 13-14 years old may be the single best predictor of who, by 16-17 years old, will develop more moles and larger moles, according to a study in JAMA Dermatology.
"Before, we never quite had an exact handle on when you make most of your moles," says co-author Dr. Allan Halpern, chief of dermatology at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in New York. Mole count and the size of moles are risk factors for melanoma.
Microbiome startup AOBiome Therapeutics has seen positive data from its phase 2b trial in acne.
The Cambridge, MA-based biotech says its ammonia oxidizing bacteria, a first-in-class therapy, showed a statistically significant two-point reduction (p = 0.03) in acne severity compared to vehicle control across several hundred patients over a 12-week period. The study also showed "a trend in the reduction of the number of inflammatory lesions compared to control, a second primary endpoint," the company added in a statement.

Surgery is the main treatment for melanoma — a dangerous form of skin cancer — but a patient's insurance could affect whether or not that cancer is quickly removed, new research suggests.
After reviewing thousands of melanoma cases, researchers at the University of North Carolina Lineberger Comprehensive Cancer Center reported that patients with Medicaid were more likely to face delays in scheduling their surgery than those with private insurance.

Many authors of dermatology clinical practice guidelines receive industry payments, and these payments are often not accurately disclosed, according to a study published online Oct. 18 in JAMA Dermatology.
Jake X. Checketts, from Oklahoma State University in Tulsa, and colleagues retrieved three American Academy of Dermatology guidelines published from 2013 to 2016. The Open Payments database was used to identify financial payments received by 49 guideline authors.

Several factors go into whether a cosmetic service will be profitable for a practice, including patient satisfaction, disposable costs, competition and marketing. We asked four physicians with established, successful cosmetic practices what they thought were among the most profitable treatments in their practices and why. Some also weighed in on money-losing propositions, as well as why profitability is a dangerous topic in cosmetic surgery.
