New recommendations from the International Eczema Council aim to address a question that has gone largely unanswered: When should dermatologists and others prescribe systemic therapy to treat atopic dermatitis?
"We are entering a revolution in systemic therapy of atopic dermatitis," says article author Lawrence F. Eichenfield, M.D., chief of pediatric and adolescent dermatology, Rady Children's Hospital, San Diego. “It is incumbent on us to make sure the right patients are selected to receive them, to ensure the most successful outcomes.”
You'd be living under a rock if you hadn't noticed weed is having a moment (sartorially speaking, of course). Once the preserve of stoners, now it promises better sex, has infiltrated the catwalk and is even a part of Kendall Jenner's airport attire. It's safe to say that the cannabis plant is having a resurgence and it's no surprise that it's now creeping into the world of beauty — one green leaf at a time. Across the pond, cannabis has been a beauty buzzword since 29 U.S. states legalized medical marijuana.

Researchers from the University of California-San Francisco say that they have found a potential treatment for baldness. Their findings, which will be published in Cell, state that regulatory T cells, otherwise known as Tregs, play a role in hair growth. These immune cells are known for controlling inflammation but are now being observed to contribute to hair regrowth.

Operators who use refrigerated air or cryogen spray cooling rather than contact cooling during laser hair removal procedures could be breathing in potentially dangerous carcinogens and toxins found in plume released during treatment, according to a recent Cutera-funded study.
The study's lead author, dermatologist Dr. E. Victor Ross, says the finding, itself, wasn't that surprising. Rather, it was the significance of the finding that got his attention.
Do humans have a shedding season? According to an analysis of Google searches for "hair loss," that may be the case: A new study finds that these searches spike in the summer and fall.
Hair loss searches were greatest in the summer in both hemispheres of the globe, followed closely by the number of searches in the fall, according to the study, published in the British Journal of Dermatology. The searches for hair loss reached a low during the spring.
It goes without saying that most of us could probably do better about scheduling regular skin cancer check-ups. But what happens when, during your skin check, your dermatologist tells you a suspicious mole is fine when it actually isn't? That's exactly what happened to 39-year-old Natalie Killian, a woman from the U.K. who visited her dermatologist after noticing what looked like a strange-looking pimple on her chest.
Slowly, it appears, the world of glossy magazines is acknowledging that beautiful people are not all young and white.
An analysis published in the journal JAMA Dermatology finds that the composition of the annual World's Most Beautiful list, published by the US People magazine has changed significantly — if not dramatically — over the past quarter century.
The study, led by Mayra Maymone, of the Boston University School of Medicine, used gender, age and skin color to compare the 50 celebrities in the magazine's 1990 list to the 135 that made the 2017 version, published in April.
