Millennials, defined as the generation of individuals born between 1981 and 1996, have emerged as one of the leading patient demographics seeking minimally invasive cosmetic procedures. Worldwide, millennials are more likely to consider preventative treatments compared to any other age-group. The three most popular minimally invasive facial procedures in this demographic include botulinum toxin, dermal fillers (eg, hyaluronic acid, calcium hydroxylapatite, facial fat-fillers), and microdermabrasion. Given their impact on the expanding aesthetic medicine market and their favorable disposition towards cosmetic procedures, it is necessary for dermatologists and cosmetic providers to understand their motivations and perspectives.

As patient autonomy gains momentum in the era of readily accessible health information, dermatologists bear a growing responsibility in patient education. With the rapid evolution and development of targeted therapies for dermatologic conditions, clinicians are faced with questions from patients regarding the mechanisms of action and side effects of novel therapeutic agents. We present an educational aid to be used in patient counseling to describe and compare the mechanisms of traditional immunosuppressive medications and targeted agents such as biologics and small molecule inhibitors

Oxidative damage from reactive oxygen species is instrumental in aging. Topical antioxidants are used in many cosmeceuticals to provide appearance benefits; however, the activity of these antioxidants may be questionable. This research validated the activity of L-ascorbic acid and L-glutathione in the studied facial product and correlated this activity with clinical appearance improvement following 12 weeks of use.

“Men may have different reasons for visiting a cosmetic surgeon’s office, but one fairly universal concern they share is wanting to maintain (or enhance) their masculinity.” 

The number of Nonsurgical aesthetic procedures performed for male patients is growing is growing rapidly. However, there is limited data on treatment principles and goals for the male aesthetic patient.

In an article from Dermatology Times,  Katie Hobbins cites findings from research published in the January 2018 issue of the Journal of Drugs in Dermatology ( The Male Aesthetic Patient: Facial Anatomy, Concepts of Attractiveness, and Treatment Patterns“) that reports a “lack of information available on male aesthetic treatments and goals contributes to the disproportionately small national percentage of men seeking the advice of a cosmetic physician when compared to women. “

Expert advisors met to discuss anatomical differences in male versus female facial anatomy related to aging, facial treatment preferences in aesthetically oriented men, and current dosing data for facial injectable treatments in male versus female patients.
