Systemic sclerosis (SSc) is a chronic autoimmune disease characterised by fibrosis, inflammation and vasculopathy in the skin and internal organs. Recently, several articles described that Th17 cells, IL-23 and IL-17 levels were significantly elevated in the peripheral blood or fibrotic sites of SSc. We report a case of SSc and psoriasis administered ustekinumab, IL-12/IL-23 inhibitor. In this case, the skin tightening was successfully improved and ustekinumab was more effective, even though oral prednisolone (9-12 mg/day) had some effect on skin tightening and arthralgia...

Cellulite is the common rippling or dimpling of skin of the thighs and buttocks of women, formed from a confluence of skin laxity, tethering fibrous septa, and fat herniation. We describe an anatomical approach to evaluating the cellulite patient and selecting the best treatment from among available non-invasive, minimally invasive, and invasive therapies. It is crucial to consider the anatomy of the patient and the morphology of cellulite while choosing a treatment. Diffuse rippling represents increased adiposity and/or increased skin laxity which may stand to benefit from lipolytic and skin tightening modalities...

REVIEW
Renee M Thomas, Scott Worswick, Maria Aleshin
Systemic sclerosis and morphea are connective tissue diseases characterized by tightening, thickening, and hardening of the skin, leading to significant morbidity. Unfortunately, current treatment options have limited efficacy for many patients. Cutaneous manifestations of these diseases arise from excess collagen deposition and fibrosis in the skin, through pathogenic mechanisms which have yet to be extensively detailed at the causal immune and cellular levels. Research elucidating the mechanism of action of retinoic acid on collagen production in the skin and case series highlighting the success of retinoic acid on the skin manifestations of systemic sclerosis and on morphea demonstrate its promise as a treatment...
