Facial aging appears to be more complicated than thought
Health Jockey    Share   Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
April 9, 2010 issue: Facelifts and other wrinkle-reducing processes have supposedly long been sought by people wishing to deflect indications of aging. But a new study from the University of Rochester Medical Center proposes that it may take more than tightening loose skin to reinstate a youthful look. This study signifies that considerable variations in facial bones, predominantly the jaw bone, seem to take place as people age and add to an aging appearance. More

Jan. 15, 2010 issue: These days, aging has become synonymous with wrinkles, therefore most of the efforts of the cosmetic industry are focused on banishing them. However, women should perhaps think twice before spending a small fortune on anti-wrinkle creams, as new studies have revealed that it's actually skin tone that gives away one's age and not wrinkles alone, the Telegraph informs.

Now, a new study reviews the currently published scientific literature to determine what evidence exists to support the use of vitamins in skin care products to slow or reverse the effects of sun damage.

Sunscreen label changes expected, but not before summer
Southeast Missourian    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
June 18, 2010 issue: A clearer, more meaningful standard for sunscreen labels is coming soon to a lotion near you, but not in time for the summer beach season that kicked off Memorial Day weekend. The Food and Drug Administration is working to finish new labeling rules that have been years in the making but will not be implemented before October. The current labeling system for sunscreen products is problematical, concedes Dr. James Spencer, spokesman for the American Academy of Dermatology. But as millions throng to the beaches, he counsels: "Sunscreen is the best you can do for now, and we're working on better." The idea behind the new federal regulations is to make labels less confusing, so consumers know exactly what kind of protection they're getting. More

In light and heat, gadgets claim to fight acne
The New York Times    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Jan. 8, 2010 issue: A new crop of hand-held aesthetic devices has been crowding the bathroom shelf, wedged between the latest salon styling tool and multi-speed electric toothbrush. Marketed as mini-me professional devices, the gadgets often come with hefty price tags and the promise of results that sound too good to be true: a skin care brush that reduces wrinkles, a hair removal unit no bigger than an iPod that beams away unwanted hair, a slender mallet-like skin plumper that creates a more youthful appearance.

March 26, 2010 issue: Ever wonder why some people have the enviable kind of skin that makes them look years younger than they actually are? Some of it is genetics, but not all of it.

Wrinkle erasing for starters
The Wall Street Journal    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Oct. 15, 2010 issue: Maybe it's the laugh lines that don't go away when you stop laughing, or the furrows in the brow even when you aren't frowning. Or perhaps it's the brown spots and rough patches on your cheeks, from years of too much sun worship. For aging faces, there comes a time when skin creams and a good night's sleep aren't enough to keep you looking as young as you like. People have various reasons for turning back the clock on their appearance, from feeling better about themselves to staying more competitive in a youth-oriented workplace. But face-lifts and other plastic surgery can be a turn-off for many people, either because of their high cost, lengthy recovery times or risks of complications. Now, a widening array of minimally invasive treatments are making facial work more accessible to many people, and becoming part of their regular upkeep. Injections of botulinum toxin type A—better known by the brand name Botox—are still the most popular procedure for smoothing wrinkles, especially in the forehead and brow. Newer dermal fillers like Juvederm and Restylane can plump up lips and smile lines. More
