Join Leon H. Kircik, MD; Linda Stein Gold, MD;  and Jonathan S. Weiss, MD as they discuss the medical interventions that target one or more of the key factors contributing to the development of acne lesions.

Acne pathogenesis is multifactorial and not clearly understood; a key factor includes genetics and may result as in interplay of release of inflammatory mediators into the skin, follicular hyperkeratinization with subsequent plugging of the follicle, Cutibacterium acne (C. acnes), formerly Propionibacterium acnes or P. acnes, follicular colonization and excess sebum production.

C. acnes has been shown to mediate inflammatory processes at the site of the sebaceous follicle contributing to the formation of free radical species and generating pro-inflammatory cytokines. Excess sebum production and
C. acnes colonization lead to the formation of microcomedones leading to the development of open or closed comedones, inflammatory papules, pustules and cysts characteristic of acne.
Acne severity and grade (comedonal, papulopustular, mixed, nodular), skin type, presence of acne scarring and postinflammatory hyperpigmentation, menstrual cycle history (in women), skin current skin care regimen are
factors influencing treatment with classes of topical agents include: comedolytic (anticomedogenic), antimicrobial, antibiotic and antiinflammatory; each impact on the four main pathogenic features of acne.
Join Drs. Leon H. Kircik, Linda Stein Gold, and Jonathan S. Weiss as they discuss the medical interventions generally targeting one or more of the key factors contributing to the development of acne lesions: follicular hyperproliferation and abnormal desquamation (topical and oral retinoids, azelaic acid, salicylic acid, hormonal therapy), increase sebum production (oral isotretinoin, hormonal therapy), C. acnes proliferation (benzoyl peroxide, topical and oral antibiotics, azelaic acid) and inflammation (oral isotretinoin, oral tetracyclines, topical retinoids, azelaic acid).

Acne vulgaris is a chronic inflammatory dermatologic disease affecting an estimated 80% of the population at some point in their life; 85% of adolescents and young adult s may experience acne and prevalent in adults with more adult women being afflicted than adult men, raising the possibility that gender difference in skin may influence the pathogenesis of acne and
treatment response.
Dermatologists indicate late-onset or adult -onset acne is becoming increasingly common in women in their 20s to 50s and research shows a large number of women over age 25 have acne and the prevalence of acne remains constant until age 44 at which time there is a decrease in incidence.

Join Leon H. Kircik, MD and James Q. Del Rosso, DO, FAOCD, FAAD as they discuss the mechanisms by which androgen/AR regulate sebocyte activity in acne vulgaris.

Androgen and androgen receptor (AR) may play important roles in several skin related diseases including androgenetic alopecia and acne vulgaris and recent studies suggest AR and androgens play distinct roles in the skin pathogenesis, and AR seems to be a better target than androgens for the treatment of these skin diseases.

Tune in as Leon H. Kircik, MD and James Q. Del Rosso, DO, FAOCD, FAAD discuss the mechanisms by which androgen/AR regulate sebocyte activity in acne vulgaris, and how suppressing AR function by treating with antiandrogens alone, or in combination with antibiotics (i.e., to reduce bacterial infection) might be a potential therapeutic approach to treat acne more effectively.

The results of this open-label clinical study suggest that a topical cream containing retinol 0.5% in combination with niacinamide, resveratrol, and hexylresorcinol is efficacious and tolerable for skin brightening/anti-aging when used with a complementary skin care regimen including SPF 30 sun protection.

View on Demand: Restoring Skin Barrier Function – Why Formulation Matters

By COVID-19 Webinars, JDD Webinars, Skin Barrier Function No Comments

Webinar Premiere

“Restoring Skin Barrier Function: Why Formulation Matters"

With the implications of hand-washing protocol during the COVID-19 pandemic, proper skin-barrier restoration is essential, especially for people with dry, eczema-prone skin.

Tune in as Professor Michael J. Cork BSC MB PhD FRCP and Professor Simon G. Danby discuss the skin-barrier restoring effect of a cream containing ceramides in a multi-vesicular emulsion for people with eczema-prone skin, as well as other skin conditions that require skin-barrier restoration.

Faculty


Professor Michael J. Cork

BSC MB PhD FRCP

Joined the University of Sheffield in 1991 as a lecturer in dermatology whilst continuing as a practising dermatologist for the NHS in Sheffield. Previously, a Registrar in Dermatology at the Royal Hallamshire Hospital, Sheffield, and a Registrar in Respiratory General Medicine at Leeds General Infirmary.

Professor Cork has been closely involved with research in many areas of dermatology; including Atopic Eczema(dermatitis), Psoriasis, Vitiligo and the Genetics of Skin Disease. Major current research work is aimed at identifying gene–environment interactions in the development of atopic dermatitis leading to skin barrier breakdown and the understanding of how topical agents interact with the skin barrier; using this information to enhance the treatment of atopic dermatitis.

Currently the Head of Sheffield Dermatology Research in the Department of Infection, Immunity & Cardiovascular Disease at the University of Sheffield Medical School and Honorary Consultant Dermatologist to both Sheffield Children´s Hospital NHS Foundation Trust and to Sheffield Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust.

 


Professor Simon G. Danby
PhD, BSC

Originally trained in biochemistry and molecular biology, Professor Danby  joined the University of Sheffield in 2005 as a post-doctoral scientist in the Academic Unit of Biomedical Genetics.

In this position, he worked exclusively for York Pharma on the early stage development of novel therapeutics and diagnostics for atopic dermatitis, psoriasis and malignant melanoma.

In 2009, he joined the Academic Unit of Dermatology Research as a post-doctoral Research Associate. The focus of his research in this role was improving our understanding of the structure and function of the epidermal (skin) barrier and its role in the development of disorders such as atopic dermatitis (AD).

At the beginning of 2012, Professor Danby  was awarded a 3-year unencumbered research fellowship from Johnson & Johnson to continue my research on the skin barrier and set up a dedicated research facility for conducting human skin research.

Since then, he has continued to conduct and lead translational dermatology research as an independent fellow.

Proactive Interventions For Stressful Times

Since we understand that hair loss and thinning is an accumulation of multiple factors, this presentation will focus on stress and the pathophysiology of hair loss.

In this on-demand-video, Dr. Suneel Chilukuri presents both the systemic and local effects of stress on the hair follicle. He defines differing pathophysiology between chronic and acute stress and how each directly and indirectly impacts hair. He also defines and discusses the use of stress adaptogens and how to introduce them as part of a comprehensive intervention.
