FDA: Anti-Aging, Skin-Lightening Products May Contain Mercury

Posted 4 Aug 2016 by Drugs.com

WEDNESDAY, Aug. 3, 2016 – Some skin products contain mercury and pose a threat to your health, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration warns. It's important to check labels of skin creams, soaps and lotions. If "mercurous chloride," "calomel," "mercuric," "mercurio" or "mercury" is listed on the label, stop using the product immediately. Do not use products if ingredients are not listed, the agency says. Mercury is often found in cosmetics marketed as "anti-aging" or "skin lightening" that claim to remove age spots, freckles, blemishes and wrinkles. Some teens also use the products to treat acne, according to the FDA. Mercury-containing skin products are made in other countries and sold illegally in the United States, often in shops that cater to Hispanic, Asian, African and Middle Eastern communities. These products are also sold online, while some consumers buy them abroad and bring ... Read more

CDC Warns of Dangers of Plastic Surgery in Dominican Republic

Posted 14 Jul 2016 by Drugs.com

THURSDAY, July 14, 2016 – U.S. health officials are warning about the dangers of "medical tourism" after at least 18 women from the East Coast became infected with a disfiguring bacteria following plastic surgery procedures they had in the Dominican Republic. The infections, caused by a type of germ called mycobacteria, can be difficult to treat. At least several of the women had to be hospitalized, undergo surgery to treat the infection and take antibiotics for months, according to the report from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. One expert said the effects can be devastating. "It's a very mutilating infection. They're going for cosmetic surgery, and they will be scarred. It's a terrible scenario for people to go down there, get surgery and come back worse than they imagined they could be," said Dr. Charles Daley. He is a Denver infectious disease physician whose ...

New 'Second Skin' Temporarily Smoothes Wrinkles

Posted 9 May 2016 by Drugs.com

MONDAY, May 9, 2016 – MIT researchers may have discovered a fountain of youth for skin – at least a very temporary one. The researchers have developed a "second skin" that could be used to smooth wrinkles, protect skin from damage, or administer medications to treat skin conditions, such as eczema. But, right now, the product only does its job for about a day. "It's an invisible layer that can provide a barrier, provide cosmetic improvement, and potentially deliver a drug locally to the area that's being treated," Daniel Anderson said in a university news release. He is an associate professor in MIT's department of chemical engineering. "Those three things together could really make it ideal for use in humans," Anderson added. As people age, their skin becomes less elastic and firm, the study authors noted. These signs of aging may be worsened by sun damage. For the past decade, the ... Read more

Health Tip: Keep Skin Looking Young

Posted 22 Apr 2016 by Drugs.com

-- Your skin may be exposed to plenty of things that can make it look older, including the sun, pollution and harsh skin-care products. But there are things you can do to help keep you looking younger. The American Academy of Dermatology suggests: Wear sunscreen every day, even when you're not at the beach or pool. Don't smoke, limit alcohol and eat lots of fresh fruit and vegetables. Get regular exercise. Avoid repeatedly making the same facial expressions, such as squinting. Clean skin gently and avoid harsh scrubbing. Wash your face in the morning, before bed and after sweating heavily, and always follow with a moisturizer. Avoid any product that causes stinging or burning, which usually means it's irritating your skin. Read more

Botox Can Be Used for Chronic Migraine, Experts Say

Posted 18 Apr 2016 by Drugs.com

MONDAY, April 18, 2016 – Botox is a safe and effective treatment for chronic migraine and three other neurological disorders, an updated guideline from the American Academy of Neurology says. Long used to smooth wrinkles, botulinum toxin is made by a type of bacteria. The toxin blocks the release of substances at nerve endings, reducing muscle contraction and the transmission of pain signals, the researchers explained. The authors of the updated guideline reviewed scientific studies on the four preparations of botulinum toxin available in the United States. They concluded that the treatment is generally safe and effective for four neurological conditions: chronic migraine, spasticity in adults, cervical dystonia and blepharospasm. Chronic migraine is defined as having migraines 15 or more days a month, the study authors explained. Spasticity in adults is muscle tightness that ... Read more

Americans Embraced Record Number of Lip Procedures in 2015

Posted 18 Apr 2016 by Drugs.com

MONDAY, April 18, 2016 – Hoping to look more kissable perhaps, Americans underwent a record number of lip procedures last year. "We live in the age of the selfie, and because we see images of ourselves almost constantly on social media, we're much more aware of how our lips look," Dr. David Song, president of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, said in a society news release. There were more than 27,400 lip implants performed in 2015 – a 48 percent increase since 2000. That averages out to one lip implant every 19 minutes, the society said, noting the procedure became more popular among both men and women. Lip injections, which include Botox and various soft-tissue fillers, also rose steeply last year, reaching nearly 9.2 million. That's an increase of more than 1,000 percent since the year 2000, the plastic surgeons said. Lip procedures have been the second-fastest-growing ... Read more

Chemical-Free Cosmetics May Be Safer for Teen Girls, Study Suggests

Posted 7 Mar 2016 by Drugs.com

MONDAY, March 7, 2016 – Switching to chemical-free cosmetics and shampoos quickly lowers levels of hormone-disrupting chemicals in the bodies of teen girls, a new study reports. Chemicals widely used in personal care products – including phthalates, parabens, triclosan and oxybenzone – have been shown to interfere with the hormone system in animals, the researchers explained. These chemicals are found in many fragrances, cosmetics, hair products, soaps and sunscreens. "Because women are the primary consumers of many personal care products, they may be disproportionately exposed to these chemicals," said study lead author Kim Harley. She is associate director of the Center for Environmental Research and Children's Health at the University of California, Berkeley. "Teen girls may be at particular risk since it's a time of rapid reproductive development, and research has suggested that ... Read more

More Americans Opting for Butt Implants, Lifts

Posted 27 Feb 2016 by Drugs.com

FRIDAY, Feb. 26, 2016 – More Americans are putting their backsides to the front of the line when it comes to plastic surgery, a new report finds. Butt implants and lifts are now the fastest-growing types of plastic surgery in the United States, according to the latest data from the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS). The 2015 statistics also revealed another sign that men are not immune to vanity: More than 40 percent of breast reductions are now performed on males, the ASPS report found. Last year, more than 27,000 breast reduction surgeries were performed on men – 5 percent more than in 2014 and 35 percent more than in 2000. "As plastic surgery is becoming more common and accepted in men, we're seeing more of them undergo procedures to tighten and tone problem areas, like the breasts," ASPS president Dr. David Song said in a society news release. "This procedure is often ... Read more

FDA Warns of Lead Poisoning Risk From Cosmetic Clay

Posted 29 Jan 2016 by Drugs.com

FRIDAY, Jan. 29, 2016 – A beauty clay sold at major retail outlets may put users at risk for lead poisoning, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration warned Friday. Alikay Naturals Bentonite Me Baby is sold online and in retail stores, including Target, Amazon.com and Sally Beauty Supply, according to the FDA. Alikay Naturals' website claims that the clay purifies and clarifies both skin and hair. However, FDA lab tests found elevated levels of lead in the clay and consumers should not use the product, the agency said in a news release. Lead can harm the central nervous system, kidneys and immune system. In children, lead exposure can lead to thinking and behavioral problems, the agency added. The FDA said it first learned of the high lead content in the clay from the Minnesota Department of Health, but there have not been any confirmed cases of lead poisoning associated with the clay. ...

Transplanted Face May Age Prematurely

Posted 3 Dec 2015 by Drugs.com

THURSDAY, Dec. 3, 2015 – Transplanted faces seem to age faster than normal, a new study suggests. More than 30 face transplants have been performed worldwide, but there is little information about recipients' long-term outcomes, the researchers said. In this study, three full-face transplant patients were followed for three years. They had a significant decrease in facial volume that resembled premature aging, said Dr. Bohdan Pomahac, of Brigham and Women's Hospital and Harvard Medical School, both in Boston. This change in appearance was the result of bone and muscle loss rather than the reduced facial fat or skin thickness that occurs in normal aging of the face, said Pomahac, who in 2011 led the first full-face transplant in the United States. The study was published online Dec. 3 in the American Journal of Transplantation. The findings show the need to find ways to prevent, delay ... Read more

Face-lifts Seem to Do Little to Boost Self-Esteem: Study

Posted 29 Oct 2015 by Drugs.com

THURSDAY, Oct. 29, 2015 – Face-lifts may smooth away years from a person's appearance, but they seem to do little to boost self-esteem, new research suggests. In the small study, the researchers looked at what 50 patients – almost all of them women – said about their own sense of self-esteem, both immediately before plastic surgery and six months later. "The findings of the study are not surprising," said lead author Dr. Andrew Jacono, a board certified plastic surgeon with the New York Center for Facial Plastic and Laser Surgery in New York City. "Because as I see it, self-esteem is much more complex than someone's appearance. It's rooted in a long developmental process that starts in childhood. So, to assume that what has taken a lifetime of work to develop could be changed by one simple operation is silly." Jacono and his colleagues reported their findings online Oct. 29 in the ...

Health Tip: Healthy Skin Doesn't Have to Cost a Fortune

Posted 26 Oct 2015 by Drugs.com

-- A good skin care regimen doesn't have to be complicated or expensive. But it should leave your skin clean and full of moisture. The American Academy of Dermatology recommends: Regularly cleanse, treat and protect your skin. Use sunscreen daily, at least every 12 hours. Use a body moisturizer daily. During winter, apply it as soon as you get out of the shower, when skin is damp. Stick to one or two product lines to save money and storage space. A more expensive product isn't necessarily better for your skin. Look for products that contain alpha hydroxy acid and vitamin A. Choose combination products, such as lip balm that also includes sunscreen. Read more
