Men: Here Are Ways to Healthier, Younger-Looking Skin

Posted 4 days ago by Drugs.com

WEDNESDAY, Jan. 18, 2017 – Many men don't think about skin care but they should, a dermatologist says. The first step is to understand your skin type, according to Dr. Anthony Rossi. Sensitive skin may sting or burn after product use. Normal skin is clear and not sensitive. Dry skin is flaky, itchy or rough. Oily skin is shiny and greasy, and combination skin is dry in some places and oily in others, Rossi explained. "Understanding your skin type will help you learn how to take care of your skin and select skin care products that are right for you," Rossi said in an American Academy of Dermatology news release. Rossi is assistant professor of dermatology at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center and Weill Cornell Medical College, both in New York City If you're prone to acne, choose cleansers and moisturizers that are "oil-free" or "noncomedogenic," which means they won't clog your ...

Plastic Surgeons Often Miss Patients' Mental Disorders

Posted 5 days ago by Drugs.com

WEDNESDAY, Jan. 18, 2016 – Nearly one in 10 patients seeking facial plastic surgery suffers from a mental illness that distorts their perception of physical defects, but doctors often don't spot the problem, new research suggests. Researchers found that plastic surgeons correctly identified the diagnosis of body dysmorphic disorder (BDD) in less than 5 percent of patients who screened positive for the disorder. According to published reports, many specialists suspect that the late superstar Michael Jackson – who underwent repeated plastic surgeries that dramatically changed his appearance – struggled with body dysmorphic disorder. Those affected with BDD, considered a type of obsessive-compulsive disorder, are overly preoccupied with perceived body defects that are actually miniscule and commonly involve the nose, eyes, skin or hair, the study authors said. "We all knew patients with ... Read more

How to Exfoliate Safely and Give Your Skin a Healthy Glow

Posted 15 days ago by Drugs.com

SUNDAY, Jan. 8, 2017 – Many skin care products promise to improve appearance by exfoliating – or removing dead cells – from the skin's outer layer. But sometimes, exfoliating can do more harm than good, according to the American Academy of Dermatology (AAD). "For some people, exfoliation can actually make their skin worse with increased redness or acne breakouts," said Dr. Rebecca Tung, associate professor of dermatology at Loyola University Medical Center in Maywood, Ill. "If you choose to exfoliate, it's important to do so safely so that it does not damage your skin." Before exfoliating, consider your skin type, Tung advised in an AAD news release. Sensitive skin often burns or stings after use of skin care products. Normal skin is clear and not sensitive. Dry skin is flaky, itchy or rough. Oily skin is shiny and greasy. Combination skin is dry in some areas and oily in others. ... Read more

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

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.
