Master regulator of skin development discovered
Medical New Today    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
The surface of your skin, called the epidermis, is a complex mixture of many different cell types — each with a very specific job. The production, or differentiation, of such a sophisticated tissue requires an immense amount of coordination at the cellular level, and glitches in the process can have disastrous consequences. Now, researchers at the Stanford University School of Medicine have identified a master regulator of this differentiation process. More

Facial resurfacing, a growing trend in Egypt
Ahram Online    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
The laser beam took the world by storm when it was introduced in 1958. Since then it has been put to many uses. For example, it is used by dermatologists for cosmetic procedures, one of which is facial resurfacing. Dr. Hossam Abu-Elatta, lecturer in plastic surgery at Ain Shams University, Cairo, Egypt, says the laser is used for skin-peeling procedures, which remove the outer, damaged layer of skin to reveal a smoother, younger look, and thus reduce the appearance of sun damage, wrinkles, fine lines and some superficial scars, usually on the face.

One person dies from melanoma every hour in the United States. Now a new device, with unlikely ties to the U.S. Department of Defense, is helping doctors diagnose the disease much sooner. 28-year-old Shannon Kelly's family has an extensive history of melanoma. She's already undergone nearly 30 mole biopsies. But Kelly has something that neither her mother nor grandfather had in the fight against melanoma. The device is called MelaFind. It is a computer that uses 10 different wavelengths of light and allows dermatologists to see 10 levels down into the skin. More

Anti-aging remedies for the eyes
Aesthetics Practice Today    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
The skin around the eyes is one of the first places that reveal a person's age. The delicate skin under the eyes that contains less subcutaneous fat becomes thinner with age. The unsightly age-related changes include dark circles, "bags" or swelling and puffiness, crepy skin under the eyes and "crows' feet." Patients often complain that they frequently get comments that they "look tired." Every year, millions of dollars are used to conceal dark circles and wrinkles around the eyes. Reduction of crows' feet, frown lines and other dynamic wrinkles has been shown to occur using a fusion of neuro peptides and active botanicals found in Super Peptide Eye Serum, which contains high concentrations of these scientifically proven peptides to boost and extend Botox and Dysport results.
