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.

Anti-aging beauty strips add to the pool of non-surgical options
TopNews United Kingdom Share
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

Still a place for peels in skin care
In the last 15 years lasers have taken over the market for skin rejuvenation.

And whether you want the original or the new formulation, doctors say there is a chemical peel for just about every type of skin. More
What's new in skin care
The Seattle Times Share
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's skin may show wrinkles sooner
Reuters via The Montreal Gazette Share
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
Lessons in skin care: Moisturize to avoid winter harm
Argus Leader Share
To win the battle winter weather can wage against your skin, you have to put back into your skin what it is missing—moisture. Dehydrated skin is not only dry, itchy and generally uncomfortable, but it also can be unhealthy. More
