Meet the Faculty
Jennifer Wild, DO
Smart Solutions For Clearing Acne
Acne is a major source of frustration for patients, and each case is as varied as the patient. By identifying the main causes, role of hormones, and stress in the development and severity of breakouts, the skincare specialist will be able to design comprehensive treatment plans that cater to the individual cutaneous needs of each patient.
At the end of the presentation the SkinCare Specialist will be able to:
1) Discuss the typical pathology of acne, as well as the potential role of hormones and external factors.
2) Identify topical ingredients proven to counteract the internal causes of acne.
3) List examples of comprehensive daily care and in-office treatment plans for multiple acne cases.
4) Review clinical trials involving patients with various types and severity levels of acne.

TopNews United Kingdom    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail
A new, painless beauty "procedure" has hit the market running. Eye Secrets are the new fad in ageism, and have the added benefit of being painless. Eye secrets are essentially adhesive strips that one places on one's eyelid, where they pull up skin to reduce the appearance of drooping. They give the appearance of being fully open and supported, with results lasting up to 12 hours (or until the strip is removed). More

What's new in skin care
The Seattle Times    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
They say we've got an app for everything under the sun, but it's a shame there isn't an app to reverse sun damage, or eliminate wrinkles. We could all just sit (in the shade, of course) with no facial expressions. Or we could try one of the several hundred products—cosmeceuticals—that promise to turn back the aging clock on our faces, or at least slow it down a bit. The word cosmeceuticals was coined by renowned American dermatologist Albert Kligman in 1980 to describe "the marriage of cosmetics and pharmaceuticals." It describes those products falling somewhere between cosmetics and drugs that contain ingredients said to improve the skin's function. More

White women may be quicker to develop wrinkles after menopause than black women, and the effects seem to have more to do with age than declining estrogen levels, a small study suggests. The findings, say researchers, may give lighter skinned women yet more reason to protect their skin from sun damage, since that may be a culprit in the earlier signs of aging among white women. More
