The majority of available data on the prevalence, grading, and management of acne vulgaris (AV) are based on studies that evaluate facial AV. Data are limited in all of these areas with truncal AV. This study evaluates the efficacy and safety of topical management of truncal AV involving the chest and back in a three-center, open-label, 16-week study. Enrolled subjects (N=20), 12 years of age or older, applied dapsone 7.5% gel once daily as monotherapy. The primary endpoint of the study was the percent of subjects who achieved a two-grade improvement and a rating of clear or almost clear based on the Investigator Global Assessment scale...

Background: Severe scarring caused by acne is associated with substantial physical and psychological distress, both in adolescents and adults. There are two basic types of scars: atrophic (depressed) and raised (hypertrophic). Microneedle fractional radiofrequency (MFRF) is a new technology that uses extra sharp microneedles to heat the depths of the dermis, which promotes dermal collagen remodeling. In this study, we used electronically controlled non-insulated microneedle radiofrequency treatment to treat atrophic acne scars, improve skin texture, and reduce pore size...

Soft tissue filler augmentation for beautification is a common aesthetic request from women who wish to enhance facial features. These interventions are performed in both younger and older women and can result in exaggerated or over-augmented lips and cheeks. This unsatisfactory outcome in older women might be due to the inappropriate application of filler enhancement principles that are based the characteristics of a young face. These existing principles do not necessarily translate well to an older face due to underlying facial skeletal changes associated with aging...

This case report highlights a unique variant of seborrheic dermatitis (SD) in a 30-year-old African-American woman with progressive facial papules. Four weeks of uninterrupted mild potency topical corticosteroid therapy produced marked improvement of signs and symptoms of biopsy-confirmed SD. SD mimicking cutaneous sarcoidosis is a unique treatment-responsive variant of SD that may be more likely to be encountered in African-American patients.

Background: Acne is a common dermatologic disease that can have a profound negative impact on a patient's health-related quality of life (HRQoL). HRQoL correlates with acne severity in some, but not all, studies. In other words, patients with the same level of acne severity might experience different levels of impact on their HRQoL. Objective: We aimed to determine which HRQoL factors are negatively affected most in patients with acne who seek dermatologic consultation and treatment for their acne. Methods: One hundred patients with acne who sought treatment from a dermatologist ("active" patients) and 159 students with a confirmed diagnosis of acne ("passive" patients) who had not sought treatment from a dermatologist were assessed for HRQoL...

REVIEW
Bruna Souza Felix Bravo, Julien Totti, Berta Elena Alcala Gelpi, Stephanie Bianco de Souza, Leonardo Gonçalves Bravo
Generally, the shape of women's eyes are distinctly different in intercatal height from that in men. Ideally, in a woman, the lateral intercostal point is positioned above the medial intercostal point, which gives the eyes a cat-like appearance that culturally suggests youth and health. Because of aging and/or physiological changes, this area can be altered with the inversion of the lateral intercantal line lower than the medial intercantal line, producing a tired and/or sad looking appearance. Hyaluronic acid is a quick and safe method of elevating the lateral intercantal area of the eye...
