March 18, 2011

It was an absolute pleasure finally meeting Susanne Warfield this past weekend at The International Congress of Esthetics and Spa in Dallas. After being her content editor of the Warfield Weekly Update over the past three years, I was given the opportunity to witness one of her informative lectures. The lecture was both educational and interactive for the hundreds in attendance.

Thank you Susanne for everything you do for this industry.

While dermatologists have used lasers successfully for years to treat common skin conditions such as acne, rosacea and aging skin, it now appears that even non-laser lights may provide some of the same benefits. In fact, lights of different colors are being used in several in-office and at-home therapies that offer consumers an alternative to more expensive laser treatments, but all may not be equally effective.

Germs lurking in old makeup: It isn't pretty
MSNBC    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Tracy Turnure's cosmetics collection doesn't quite qualify her for a spot on A&E's "Hoarders," but it's close. Her various makeup bags, combined with her mom's and her sister's stashes, once filled a mid-sized closet in the family's Seattle home. Hidden among her cosmetic cache is a black Wet 'N' Wild eyeliner pencil she bought for 99 cents in middle school and a Garden Botanika bronzer from the early 1990s. She swears she never uses the stuff, but somehow can't part with the palettes, powders and creams of her past. More

Sculpting with fat can restore faces
Pittsburgh Post-Gazette    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Jeremy Feldbusch can't see the results of the special cosmetic surgery he recently got—but he's pleased when people tell him what a good job the doctors did. Mr. Feldbusch is blind because a piece of artillery shrapnel tore through his skull in Iraq in 2003. In January, UPMC surgeon J. Peter Rubin took fat from his abdomen and thighs and injected it into cavities that his war injuries had left on his face. The procedure smoothed out the depressions that bordered a metal plate in his forehead and filled in some "potholes" near his right eye, as Mr. Feldbusch put it. More

ABC News    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Teenage girls notoriously struggle with their looks. But imagine if your teen were so concerned about her appearance that she insisted on getting Botox injections to combat the effects of aging. While the procedure might seem excessive for a fresh face, Botox, or botulinum toxin, has become increasingly popular among teenage girls since the Food and Drug Administration approved it for cosmetic use in 2002.

Electricity sparks interest in new technologies and cosmeceuticals for aging skin
AAD    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
It may seem as if new developments to combat aging skin are being introduced faster than the speed of light. At the forefront of the research, dermatologists are underpinning these advancements, refining the basic understanding of how the skin ages in order to develop more effective non-invasive cosmetic procedures and products. Now, as an alternative to laser light—used successfully for years to make skin appear younger—dermatologists are investigating electricity. More
