Human facial aging is a gradual and ongoing process involving various factors including photodamage, skin laxity, volume loss of subcutaneous tissue, and bony resorption.

As the aging US population is growing, minimally invasive strategies have become the primary treatment modalities for addressing mild to moderate age-related facial changes. The introduction of microfocused ultrasound (MFU) represents a method to produce a deeper wound healing response with increased collagen remodeling and more durable clinical response. MFU-V treatment protocols continue to be refined and use in combination with other minimally invasive strategies including injectable dermal fillers such as diluted calcium hydroxylapatite for skin laxity and appearance of lines in the neck and décolletage has been studied.

Need exists for expanded understanding of dermatology providers on the application of microfocused ultrasound in combination with injectable dermal fillers as a treatment approach for lifting skin on the neck and face and for improving lines and wrinkles on the chest

"Re-examining the Optimal Use of Neuromodulators and the Changing Landscape: A Consensus Panel Update"

Since initial US Food and Drug Administration approval of botulinum toxin type A (BoNT-A) for aesthetic use in 2002, clinical evidence and experience with BoNT-A and understanding of facial anatomy have greatly increased, leading to rapid advances in treatment plan-ning and implementation.

BoNT-A use has expanded from the upper face to the midface, lower face, and neck, so that BoNT-A injection is the most common cosmetic procedure worldwide. Trends in facial aesthetics reflect growing patient diversity with respect to age, gender, and ethnicity. In October 2019, a multidisciplinary panel of 6 experts in minimally invasive injectable procedures in the special-ties of dermatology and plastic surgery convened at the 2019 American Society for Dermatologic Surgery (ASDS) meeting in Chicago, IL. Their goal was to discuss recent advances in BoNT-A use in facial aesthetics, including implications of the introduction of new agents in light of an evolving patient population.

Tapping Tattoo Artists as a Unique Approach to Disseminating Photoprotection Education

By Podcast Highlights No Comments
Continued efforts by the dermatology community to educate the public on both photoprotective measures and early skin cancer detection through surveillance has made a significant impact but the battle is far from over, especially in diverse skin phototypes for whom myths and misinformation are still pervasive regarding this space.
Innovative strategies are still sorely needed! Enter mentor-mentee duo Robert P. Dellavalle MD PhD MSPH from the University of Colorado School of Medicine and Cristian D. Gonzalez MD from University of Texas Southwestern, who are no doubt going to create some buzz with their December 2019 JDD study “Hispanic Tattoo Artists Could Provide Skin Cancer Prevention via Aftercare Instructions and Social Media.”

Tune in to hear how both doctors and artists can become allies in canvas (aka skin) cancer education dissemination. Learn how social media can be used as an effective research tool to both recruit and collect data. By the time you are through with this custom work, you will be loyal to the coil.

Picking on Pruritus as a Problematic Clinical Biomarker in Autoimmune Connective Tissue Diseases

By Podcast Highlights

Pruritus is the worst – plain and simple. However we have only just scratched the surface with respect to why it happens in a multitude of clinical scenarios and what it could be telling us other then “SCRATCH ME.”

In this edition of the JDD Podcast, Dr. Gideon Smith, assistant professor of dermatology at Harvard Medical school, Vice Chair for Clinical Affairs in Dermatology, and Director of the Connective Tissue Diseases Clinic and Fellowship joins us to pick apart his recent study in the JDD October 2019 edition, Characterizing Pruritus in Autoimmune Connective Tissue Diseases.

At the conclusion of the eight-week treatment, the rate of success was significantly higher for patients randomized  to once-daily treatment with halobetasol 0.01% lotion compared with vehicle-treated controls (P<.001 for both comparisons).

Tune in to learn how not all itch is created equal in the autoimmune connective tissue world. Determine what questions can help guide management and therapy selection. Hear how to connect with rheumatology to forge a long lasting partnership, just like itchy and scratchy.
