BBL treatment reduces, delays skin agingResearchers examine broad band light treatment for long-term skin quality results.
Diet, skin disease data growingA growing number of studies suggest diet influences general skin health and specific skin diseases, from acne and eczema to skin aging. Dermatologists share their best practices for using diet to combat skin disease and promote skin health.
Next-gen topical HAA novel hyaluronic acid technology does more than increase hydration. It’s biologically smart.
Study looks at pollution’s adverse effects on skinThe effects of air pollution on the skin may trump the benefits that can be gained through lifestyle choices such as proper diet and regular exercise.
Data suggests pollution new target in skin agingScientific findings indicate that people need to do more to protect their skin from the sun and must now also begin thinking about the damaging effects of exposure to pollution. Topical applications of antioxidants and DNA repair enzymes have potential to be helpful tools, according to an expert who spoke at the 2014 Annual Meeting of the American Society for Dermatologic Surgery.
Pollution, stress take toll on skin agingA new area of research may help in the development of more effective topical products to counteract polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons, a result of air pollution which impacts skin aging.
Skin cells build ‘bridges’ during wound healingNew research indicates that outer skin cells are able to unite to form a bridge during wound healing. The finding may lead to advances in tissue engineering, artificial skin design and improved wound treatment.
Examining molecular influences on agingHow do we age? That was the weighty question to kick off a presentation by Barbara A. Gilchrest, M.D., Boston University School of Medicine, who presented at MauiDerm earlier this year.
Body’s circadian rhythms affect skin stem cell regulationNew research suggests that the body’s internal clock and its circadian rhythms adjust the modulation of skin stem cells based on the time of day — and that disruption to this cycle can cause tissue aging and lead to predisposition to skin cancer.
Can telomere manipulation stop the biological clock?Factors including UV exposure and psychological stress can accelerate the aging process, partly through their influence on telomeres, an expert says. Research is beginning to uncover strategies to counter these forces, however.
