The influence of ageing on the density of the functional entities of the papillae containing nutritive capillaries, here in terms as the papillary index, and the effect of topically applied vitamin C were investigated by confocal laser scanning microscopy (CLSM) in vivo.
As people get older so do the hematopoietic stem cells (HSCs) that form their blood, creating an increased risk for compromised immunity and certain blood cancers. Now researchers are reporting in the scientific journal EMBO that the bone marrow niche where HSC’s form also ages, contributing to the problem.
An emergency motion condemning the injection of Botox and dermal fillers by non-health professionals, such as beauty therapists and hairdressers, is to be proposed at this year’s 6th National Aesthetic Nursing Conference at the Royal Liver Building in Liverpool.

Botox and other botulinum neurotoxins (BoNT) products are widely known for their use in treating facial wrinkles—but they can also be used to treat a wide range of non-cosmetic problems. Eight conditions with good evidence of effective treatment with BoNT are identified in a special review in the August issue of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery®, the […]
A Lancet paper reporting a favourable risk-benefit profile for SC methotrexate (although perhaps not as effective as biologicals) for treating patients with moderate-to-severe plaque psoriasis begins this month’s issue. Belgian research suggests that a one-time total-body skin examination of adults is the most cost-effective strategy for reducing skin cancer mortality. This is followed by Australian […]
Facial skin ageing is caused by intrinsic and extrinsic mechanisms. Intrinsic ageing is highly related to chronological age. Age-related skin changes can be measured using clinical and biophysical methods. The aim of this study was to evaluate whether and how clinical characteristics and biophysical parameters are associated with each other with and without adjustment for […]
New data released by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) reveals that Americans want to put their best face and body forward as their annual plastic surgery procedural statistics show a three percent growth in cosmetic procedures over the last year. According to ASPS statistics, there were 17.1 million surgical and minimally-invasive cosmetic procedures […]
A phase 2 dose-escalation RCT comparing three strengths of sirolimus gel and placebo for facial angio bromas in the tuberous sclerosis complex begins this issue. This is followed by a randomised trial demonstrating the bene cial effects of NB-UVB (narrow-band UVB) and PUVA (psoralen plus UVA) in managing steroid-dependent, antihistamine-refractory chronic urticaria. In other RCTs […]
A multicenter Australian study published in JAMA on the association between paediatric psoriasis and waist-to-height ratio in the absence of obesity suggests a positive association in a group of 200 children attending a tertiary referral center paediatric dermatology clinic and one of two private specialist dermatologists’ consultant rooms. This study highlights the potential impact of […]
