Examining molecular influences on aging
Dermatology Times
How do we age? That was the weighty question to kick off a presentation by Dr. Barbara A. Gilchrest, Boston University School of Medicine, who presented at MauiDerm in early 2013. In the skin, there are two distinct components of aging: intrinsic and extrinsic aging processes, Gilchrest notes. Intrinsic aging entails the clinical, histologic and physiologic changes realized in sun-protected skin of older adults. Extrinsic aging is what is commonly called photoaging, or the clinical, histologic and physiologic changes seen in the habitually sun-exposed skin of older adults. "There is a striking contrast clinically between these two processes," she says.

Defying time: Look younger, longer with cosmetic procedures
A diligent skin care routine and good genes can only go so far when fine lines and wrinkles, uneven skin tone, enlarged pores, sagging skin and dark spots come calling. Since there's no such thing as a miracle in a bottle, more women — and men — are turning to noninvasive and minimally invasive cosmetic procedures to erase signs of aging.

Topical treatment alone insufficient for many NMSCs
Dermatology Times
Except in limited instances, an expert says, topical therapies for medical management of nonmelanoma skin cancers work best as adjuncts to surgery. As monotherapy, says Dr. Fiona O'Reilly Zwald, "I typically use topical agents (off-label) for AKs, superficial basal cell carcinomas and perhaps squamous cell carcinoma in situ. However, I would not use topical agents for more invasive SCC or nodular BCC. That's where surgery is needed."

10 things plastic surgeons won't tell you
Dentists, gynecologists or barely trained spa technicians — it seems like everyone's offering anti-aging treatments these days. And no wonder: Cosmetic treatments are a lucrative business with $11 billion spent in the U.S. in 2012, up 5.5 percent from 2011, according to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons. That's appealing not only to physicians hoping to offset the costs of higher malpractice premiums and lower reimbursements from insurance carriers, but also to so-called medical spas that don't even have a doctor on site when certain treatments are administered.

Management lessons learned from launch
By Mike Wokasch
The embarrassing and problematic launch of is nothing short of incomprehensible in our well-established technology driven world of commerce.

If you are managing a small or large project, here are a few axioms that don't appear to have been taken into consideration when was constructed and launched.
