Healthcare reform ranks high among many dermatologists' worries for the immediate future. More

Researchers weigh pros and cons of sun exposure
The Stanford Daily    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Excessive sun exposure can bring with it life-threatening diseases, particularly skin cancer–but a growing fear of skin cancer may lead to vitamin D deficiency in overprotective patients or those who spend too much time indoors. The dichotomous impact of sun exposure has become a focus of research for dermatologists at Stanford. This month's Archives of Dermatology published a research study conducted by assistant professor of dermatology Jean Tang M.D. Ph.D. '03 on correlations between vitamin D deficiency and a rare form of skin cancer called basal cell nevus syndrome (BCNS).

Last year, a man noticed Maurice at work and offered to pay for cosmetic surgery. More

Cosmetic surgery rebound could be good economic sign
Chicago Sun-Times    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Bryn Collins paid nearly $10,000 for a facelift and eyelid surgery 10 years ago. Now, at age 65, she could have another, but opted instead for "facial fillers"—$1,500 injections that smooth eye wrinkles and mouth lines for 18 months. Though Collins' psychology practice was still smarting from the recession, she found a way to finance the shots. She quit shopping, hoarded the change in her pockets, and set aside the first $20 of every ATM withdrawal until she had saved enough. Collins' willingness to part with hard-earned cash resonates with cosmetic clinicians who say demand for Botox, fillers, chemical peels, breast enlargements, nose jobs, Lasik eye surgeries and other out-of-pocket procedures are creeping back after a dismal three years in the elective-surgery business.
