Beyond Botox: How new treatments help turn back the clock
Plastic surgery and Botox could easily be matches in a word association game, and with good reason. Botulinum toxin type A injections rank No. 1 on the list of top five cosmetic minimally invasive procedures for 2013, according to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons. The number of Botox injections performed last year clocked in at a record 6.3 million, according to the ASPS.

Shared medical appointments can be successful prior to Mohs micrographic surgery
Patients preparing to undergo Mohs micrographic surgery reported a high level of satisfaction after attending shared medical appointments, according to recently published study results. "Shared medical appointments allow patients with similar diagnoses to be simultaneously educated and cared for by one provider," the researchers wrote. "MAs appear well-suited for Mohs micrographic surgery because all patients received similar information about skin cancer pathophysiology, prognosis, prevention, treatment, reconstructive options and wound care."

Scientists find genetic wrinkle to block sun-induced skin aging
University of British Columbia via Medical Xpress
A scientific team at the University of British Columbia and Providence Health Care have genetically engineered mice with less wrinkled skin, despite repeated exposure to wrinkle-inducing ultraviolet light. The youthful-looking mice were bred without the gene that produces Granzyme B, an enzyme that immune cells use to destroy harmful pathogens. The UBC-Providence team, led by professor David Granville and postdoctoral fellow Leigh Parkinson, found that Granzyme B also does harm: When produced and released by skin cells in response to UV light, it triggers the breakdown of collagen, a structural protein that makes skin firm.

How to stop aging at 40
Fasion editor Kate Bennett writes: Like most women of a certain age, I faced my 40th birthday this year with composure, a sense of accomplishment and a fair amount of Pinot Noir. Not that I felt bad. I think I look pretty decent, considering the wear and tear I've put myself through — including years of sun exposure, smoking, late nights and motherhood. Still, as my friends and I entered middle age, I wondered what I could do cosmetically to thwart the onslaught of wrinkles and sagging. In other words: How bad off was I?

Genentech submits new drug application for advanced melanoma combination treatment
Genentech has submitted a new drug application to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration for use of cobimetinib in combination with vemurafenib as treatment for BRAF V600 mutation-positive advanced melanoma, according to a press release. Results of a phase 3 study, which demonstrated that patients with BRAF V600 mutation-positive advanced melanoma who received cobimetinib plus vemurafenib (Zelboraf, Genentech/Daiichi Sankyo) had significantly longer progression-free survival compared with patients treated with vemurafenib alone, were used for the new drug application.

On a selfie high
Deccan Chronicle
In a world where people sign into Facebook, Instagram and Twitter as routinely as they brush their teeth, there comes a growing concern for the way they appear online. Today's youngsters believe that selfies are empowering — from Taylor Swift to Deepika Padukone, selfies are everybody's game. Social platforms, which are solely image-based, have been forcing patients to hold their own image under microscope and get more self-critical of their own image. These images guide them towards putting their best face forward.
