Subacute cutaneous lupus erythematosus leukoderma treated with melanocyte-keratinocyte transplantation procedure.

J Cosmet Dermatol 2019 Apr 1. Epub 2019 Apr 1.

Dermatology Department, Santa Casa de Curitiba Hospital, Curitiba, Brazil.

Depigmented lesions may occur as postinflammatory sequelae of subacute cutaneous lupus erythematosus (SCLE), leading to great psychosocial impact. A 53-year-old male patient presented with post-SCLE depigmented facial lesions after five years of disease stability. We proposed surgical treatment with melanocyte-keratinocyte transplantation procedure (MKTP), and after five months the patient achieved 90% repigmentation, without Koebner phenomenon (KP).

Orofacial management for epidermolysis bullosa during wisdom tooth removal surgery: A technical note.

J Stomatol Oral Maxillofac Surg 2019 Mar 22. Epub 2019 Mar 22.

Department of maxillofacial surgery, university institute of the face and neck, university hospital of Nice, 31, avenue de Valombrose, 06100 Nice, France. Electronic address:

Introduction: Epidermolysis bullosa (EB) is a heterogeneous group of genetic diseases characterized by cutaneous and/or mucosal fragility. Blisters can occur spontaneously or because of minor friction on facial skin or the oral cavity. The repercussions of these dermatoses complicate the management of patients during surgery; for example, wisdom teeth removal might be complicated because of the limited mouth opening and mucosal lesions may be aggravated when the area of the wisdom teeth is being explored.

Erythematotelangiectatic rosacea may be associated with a subclinical stage of demodicosis: a case-control study.

Br J Dermatol 2019 Feb 22. Epub 2019 Feb 22.

Free University of Brussels (ULB), Institut de Recherche Interdisciplinaire en Biologie Humaine et Moléculaire (IRIBHM) and Service de Biostatistique et Informatique Médicale (SBIM), Route de Lennik 808/CP602, 1070, Brussels, Belgium.

Background: Facial densities of Demodex mites have been observed to be greater in patients with demodicosis and papulopustular rosacea than in healthy control patients. In patients with erythematotelangiectatic rosacea (ETR), this density has been observed to be similar to or greater than that of healthy controls. Erythema and telangiectasia, characteristics of ETR, are often observed among patients with pityriasis folliculorum, a discreet demodicosis, suggesting a possible link between these conditions.

Managing the Aesthetic Patient

J Drugs Dermatol 2019 01;18(1):92-102

wide variety of therapeutic options, some challenges have arisen: designing an adequate treatment plan, electing the most suitable procedures for the patient, taking into consideration the rheological characteristics of the products, considering the amount needed to achieve a natural look, but also defining the safest way to deliver the treatment. Aging of the facial structural tissue layers occurs at a different pace and the requirements for the aesthetic approach of a 30-year-old patient are different from a 60-year-old patient. A group of twelve experts in minimally invasive injectable procedures sought to identify common changes observed in different age groups in order to help in establishing a plan of treatment for patients of different ages.

Authors:
Anna Chien

J Drugs Dermatol 2018 Dec;17(12):s51-55

Acne vulgaris is the most common skin condition affecting adolescents and young adults with a tremendous psychosocial impact. Its pathogenic hallmarks include follicular dyskeratosis, increased sebum production, and inflammation induced by Cutibacterium (formerly Propionibacterium) acnes within the follicle. Retinoids, derived from vitamin A, are the mainstays of acne treatment given they address the key pathogenic pathways of acne. Read More

Clinical Evaluation of Safety and Efficacy of Fractional Radiofrequency Facial Treatment of Skin Type VI Patients

J Drugs Dermatol 2018 11;17(11):1169 - 1172

INTRODUCTION: It has been well established that patients with darker skin types (Fitzpatrick skin types IV-VI) have an increased incidence of thermal induced side effects from laser and radio frequency (RF) treatments. Complications include a higher risk of post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation, hypopigmentation, and scarring, leading to unsatisfactory clinical outcomes. Fractional technologies improve the safety when treating patients with skin of color by treating only fractions of the skin while leaving a healing reservoir of untreated skin that improves the healing process.

Hybrid Fractional Laser: A Multi-Center Trial on the Safety and Efficacy for Photorejuvenation

J Drugs Dermatol 2018 11;17(11):1164 - 1168

BACKGROUND: Laser skin resurfacing has continued to evolve over the past two decades. One of the most recent advances included a hybrid fractional laser resurfacing system that can sequentially utilize two wavelengths in its delivery, non-ablative coagulation with 1470 nm, and ablative vaporization with 2940 nm. The 1470 nm laser wavelength is absorbed by water, which is ideal for creating controlled zones of coagulation to chosen depths into the dermis up to 700 micrometers. Read More

Acne vulgaris, generally resulted from overgrowth of (), is one of the most difficult-to-treat facial dermatoses and more than 90% of adolescents experienced the disease worldwide. Because the innate non-lymphoid immune system cannot effectively eliminate excessive from the skin surface, so far the therapy of acne vulgaris is still mainly dependent on antibiotic treatment. However, long-term or overdose of antibiotics may initiate microbial drug resistance and/or generate unexpected side effects that seriously hamper the use of antibiotics in the clinic. Read More

Clinical Efficacy of a Novel Two-Part Skincare System on Pollution-Induced Skin Damage.

J Drugs Dermatol 2018 Sep;17(9):975-981

Introduction: Air pollution continues to be a global health concern and recent studies have shown that air pollutants can cause skin damage and skin aging through several pathways that induce oxidative stress, inflammation, apoptosis, and skin barrier dysfunction. Preventive measures need to be considered to retain optimal skin health, and topical skincare products may be able to alleviate the negative effects of air pollution on skin. A randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled clinical usage study was conducted to assess the efficacy and tolerability of a novel two-part skincare system (LVS) that was developed to provide protection against environmental skin aggressors including air pollution.

Head-and-neck dermatitis: Diagnostic difficulties and management pearls.

Pediatr Dermatol 2018 Nov 28;35(6):748-753. Epub 2018 Aug 28.

Division of Dermatology, Department of Medicine, University of Arizona, Tucson, Arizona.

Head-and-neck involvement negatively impacts quality of life and is often harder to treat than other body parts, as long-term topical corticosteroid use carries higher risks for skin atrophy on the face.
