As skin cancer prevalence continues to rise, the importance of sun protection, including sunscreen use, has become accepted in the public. Sunscreens are divided into two main categories based on the type of their active ingredient, organic and inorganic ultraviolet (UV) filters. It has been shown that inorganic filters are more effective at blocking forms of UV light, both UVA and UVB, as compared with organic filters because organic sunscreens absorb and convert radiation whereas inorganic sunscreens reflect radiation.

Aging may be one of the most foreseeable facts of life. As aesthetic providers, we routinely hear concerns about the effects of aging on our looks; it is important that we address these concerns.

Jeanine Harrison, MN, BScN, ACNP, RN-EC, NP, is a Medical Aesthetic Nurse Practitioner and a practice expert in PRP techniques for face and hair at TH Medical Aesthetics, Thornhill, Ontario, Canada.

Many mainstream medications were derived from plants and originally utilized in patient management well prior to the extensive research and testing processes of current pharmaceutical standards. The evolution of therapeutic management within the pharmaceutical and skin care industry often uses synthetic processing of products with less of a focus on the natural ingredients from which they were originally derived. However, more recently there has been a shift in pharmacological management to include the therapeutic use of more holistic medicines and practices and thus a broadening of the uses of nontraditional medical treatment options.

According to the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (), the number of nonsurgical treatments grew 650% from 1996 to 2016. As these procedures have evolved and improved, so have their ability to deliver results that enhance one's natural beauty and reverse the signs of aging. Many patients seek these procedures in the hopes of looking younger and more refreshed, but "younger" can be subjective and the patient's desired outcome may be difficult for practitioners to interpret.

Medical Aesthetics Training: Shifting to Collective Competence.

Plast Surg Nurs 2017 Jul/Sep;37(3):103-108

Iris Epstein, PhD, RN, is Assistant Professor at the School of Nursing, Faculty of Health, York University. Iris research focuses on the links between health, technology, and place and how technology (e.g., E-learning, simulation) used in different places (home, classroom, laboratory, online) affects people's experiences. Iris is currently collaborating with George Brown College Engineering and School of Design in building and evaluating a simulated haptic partial task trainer to teach palpation skills from a multidisciplinary perspective and bring practitioner's "touch" back to the curricular and health care. Eva Peisachovich, PhD, RN, is Assistant Professor at the School of Nursing, Faculty of Health, York University. Her research involves developing capacity and expertise about innovative educational strategies to foster students' success and enhance students' experiences and transition to the workforce. Transformative education and reflective practice guide her philosophy of teaching and learning to create and explore innovative pedagogy practices that range from classroom to workplace environment. Celina Da Silva, PhD, RN, completed her dissertation at the Lawrence S. Bloomberg, Faculty of Nursing, University of Toronto, titled "A Phase 1 Study of a Kolb-Influenced, High-Fidelity Simulation Intervention Implemented to Improve Nursing Students' Use of a Conflict Resolution Skill." Some of the research studies that Celina is participating in relate to innovations in interprofessional education. She was the Principal Investigator of a study, titled "Simulated Practice Center Program Evaluation, George Brown College (GBC), Health Sciences Center." This research study generated qualitative data related to the Health Sciences Simulation program at GBC in order to better support the future development of simulation education for health professions students. Presently, she is conducting a research study that involves designing, refining, and testing a virtual simulation (Body Interact) modality geared to teach interprofessional students decision-making skills related to a deteriorating patient care case. As well, she is part of a research team that recently was awarded an SSHRC grant and developed the mentorship site for postsecondary students with disabilities across Ontario who are partnered with other professionals. Charlotte Lee, PhD, RN, research focuses on health services evaluation and interprofessional teams. She is particularly interested in understanding how collaborative relationships affect teamwork processes and outcomes in health care. Dr. Lee's current work aims to identify the antecedents and teamwork outcomes associated with collaborative relationships. Philip Solomon, MD, FRCSC, completed his medical school training at the University of Toronto, followed by a 5-year residency training program in Otolaryngology Head and Neck Surgery at the University of Toronto. Dr. Solomon's training focused on head and neck cancer surgery, reconstructive facial surgery, and facial cosmetic plastic surgery including rhinoplasty, facelift, blepharoplasty, and otoplasty surgery.

With increased demands for medical aesthetics procedures and the sudden profusion of newly licensed, and unlicensed, providers who are performing these medical aesthetics procedures also comes the responsibility to shift to collective competence. Collective competence refers to what occurs among professionals in action, emphasizing the sharing of experiences, knowledge, and perceptions among those who are providing services to the medical aesthetics client. Registered nurses and medical students are not taught to perform cosmetic procedures in basic nursing or medical programs and thus require a post-entry-level education to validate their competency.

The tissue expansion process using traditional saline expanders is lengthy and uncomfortable. A new technology has been developed, providing a needle-free option implanted after a mastectomy, and is activated by a handheld remote control releasing small amounts (10 cc) of carbon dioxide from an internal reservoir. The expander is gradually filled with CO2 resulting in mechanical stretching of the overlying tissue. Read More
