Nanostructured lipid carriers incorporating prickly pear seed oil for the encapsulation of vitamin A.

J Cosmet Dermatol 2019 Feb 19. Epub 2019 Feb 19.

Department of Chemistry, The American University in Cairo, Cairo, Egypt.

Background: Solid lipid nanoparticles (SLNs) are dispersions synthesized by replacing liquid lipid in an o/w emulsion with solid lipids. Nanostructured lipid carriers (NLCs) improve on some of the major limitations of the SLNs as NLCs use liquid lipids along with crystalline solid fatty acids to build the core.

Aims: This work aims to investigate the potential advantage of using Prickly Pear (PP) seed oil to develop NLCs for topical delivery of vitamin A. Read More

Melasma: How hormones can modulate skin pigmentation.

J Cosmet Dermatol 2019 Feb 18. Epub 2019 Feb 18.

San Gallicano Dermatological Institute (IRCCS), Rome, Italy.

We described-along with a genetic predisposition and exposure to sunlight, as the main factors for melasma development-pregnancy, hormonal therapies, and oral contraceptive pills. Whilst hormonal alteration or therapies are frequently reported in literature in association with melasma, studies analyzing the laboratoristic correlation are limited. We review data published on hormones variations both in women and males with melasma and report some peculiar clinical cases that further demonstrate how the relationship between hormone secretion and melasma development is difficult to be defined.

Human scalp hair: Modulation by various factors and hormones do estrogens inhibit or stimulate-A perplexing perspective.

Authors:
Edwin D Lephart

J Cosmet Dermatol 2019 Feb 15. Epub 2019 Feb 15.

Department of Physiology and Developmental Biology and The Neuroscience Center, College of Life Science, Brigham Young University, Provo, Utah.

Several journal reports, reviews, and commentaries over the last 20-25 years have pointed out the controversy attached to 17β-estradiol's inhibitory or stimulatory influence on hair follicle growth/cycling citing rodent (murine) and human results. While 17β-estradiol is the most potent sex steroid hormone in the body and has almost equal affinity for estrogen receptor (ER) alpha (α) and beta (β), there appears to be specific ER-mediated effects on scalp hair follicles/growth, etc. Additionally, the newly discovered G protein-coupled estrogen receptor (GPR30 or GPER) and the orphan receptor, estrogen-related receptor (ERR) gamma (γ), in skin and other tissue sites have potential impacts of how estrogens via these receptors may alter scalp hair characteristics, but this remains to be elucidated.

Variables that predict response of nevus of ota to lasers.

J Cosmet Dermatol 2019 Feb 5. Epub 2019 Feb 5.

Department of Dermatology, DR RMLH, PGIMER, New Delhi, India.

Nevus of ota is a dermal melanocytosis common among Asian patients, mottled, blue-gray macule that is usually located unilaterally within the distribution of the first and second branches of the trigeminal nerve and almost always responds well to treatment with Q-switched lasers (eg, ruby, alexandrite, and Nd: YAG). In spite of the plethora of science behind laser-tissue interactions, the objective evaluation of nevus of ota response to laser is not on firm footing and most studies report subjective percentile scoring improvement. A knowledge of the variations in morphology of nevus of ota can help predict an optimal dose response and help to counsel patients appropriately. Read More
