Wounding with a microneedling device corrects the inappropriate ultraviolet B radiation response in geriatric skin.

Arch Dermatol Res 2020 Jan 28;312(1):1-4. Epub 2019 Oct 28.

Department of Dermatology, Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, and The Herman B Wells Center for Pediatric Research, Indiana University School of Medicine, Indianapolis, IN, USA.

Non-melanoma skin cancer primarily affects geriatric patients as evidenced by the fact that only 20% of these cancers are diagnosed in patients under the age of 60 years. Of importance, geriatric skin responds to procarcinogenic ultraviolet B radiation (UVB) in a manner that permits the establishment of tumor cells. Recent studies have indicated that wounding of geriatric skin with fractionated resurfacing lasers and dermabrasion upregulates fibroblast production of insulin-like growth factor-1 (IGF-1) and normalizes the procarcinogenic acute UVB response consisting of basal keratinocytes proliferating while still harboring unrepaired DNA damage.

Hypothesis: Wound-induced TLR3 activation stimulates endogenous retinoic acid synthesis and signalling during regeneration.

Exp Dermatol 2019 04;28(4):450-452

Department of Dermatology, Johns Hopkins School of Medicine, Baltimore, Maryland.

Although the mechanism is unclear, it has been shown that genetically normal adult mice with a large wound form de novo morphogenesis of hair follicles in wound-induced hair neogenesis (WIHN)(1). We focused on how tissues recognize damage signals and identified that double-stranded RNA (dsRNA)-mediated toll-like receptor 3 (TLR3) activation stimulates WIHN. Here, we propose a hypothesis that TLR3 stimulates retinoic acid synthesis and signalling to allow for regeneration, suggesting that common clinical methods of facial rejuvenation in human subjects through damage (such as lasers or dermabrasion), and the use of topical retinoids reflect the same biologic pathway.

Six-year follow-up of vitiligo patients successfully treated with autologous non-cultured melanocyte-keratinocyte transplantation.

J Eur Acad Dermatol Venereol 2019 Jun 22;33(6):1172-1176. Epub 2019 Feb 22.

Department of Dermatology, APHP, Hôpital Henri Mondor, Université Paris-Est, Créteil, France.

Background: Although autologous non-cultured melanocyte-keratinocyte transplantation is a treatment option for stable vitiligo, there is lack of long-term maintenance data for this specific treatment.

Objective: To search for factors associated with long-term maintenance of patients with stable vitiligo successfully treated with melanocyte-keratinocyte transplantation.

Methods: This was a single-centre retrospective study including stable vitiligo patients who underwent successful melanocyte-keratinocyte transplantation in the National Center for Vitiligo, Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, between 1 January 2004 and 30 June 2015. Read More

Facial Scar Improvement Procedures.

Facial Plast Surg 2018 Oct 8;34(5):448-457. Epub 2018 Oct 8.

Department of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery, University of Utah Hospital, Salt Lake City, Utah.

Scars are a natural part of dermal healing following lacerations, incisions, or tissue loss. The ideal scar is narrow, flat, level with surrounding tissue, and difficult for the untrained eye to see due to color match and placement parallel to relaxed skin tension lines; however, scarring that is dyspigmented, hypertrophied, widened, contracted, or atrophic can be aesthetically displeasing or causing functional limitations. When the scar has unfavorable characteristics, scar revision is often indicated and the cosmetic surgeon must be knowledgeable of the minimally invasive as well as surgical techniques to improve aesthetics, reduced reoccurrence, or correct functional limitations.
