What is the next break through in dermatology?

What is the next break through in dermatology?

Skin replacement: There are many areas of investigation in dermatology such as better treatment for tumors like melanoma and treatment for chronic conditions like psoriasis and eczema. A most interesting line of investigation is to develop an artificial skin to replace skin damaged by disease or trauma. This would be a fabulous breakthrough. Do you have any ideas for a skin breakthrough? ...Read more

Plz i have hairloss problem dermatology  could find reason of it. i want to put hair colour  on my hair is it ok or will make more hairlloss.

Hair loss is: typically not caused by hair dye. I would consider supplements to help hair growth. And I would make appointment with dermatologist to determine cause of hair loss (check labs and consider biopsy of scalp to find cause). Again gentle hair dyes should not cause hair loss, but need to find out why you are losing hair ...Read more

Could topical caffeine possibly? International journal of dermatology found it blocks DHT and could speed hair growth. True? Possibly? Thoughts? Mpb?

Topical caffeine: I have not previously heard of topical caffeine but have gone on-line to learn something about it. Seems that there is some benefit. For completeness I would go back to the article in the Dermatology Journal, read it carefully, and then make an appointment to see a Dermatologist. Why this fuss? If things don't work well you will not be happy. ...Read more

Is dermaplaning bad for acne? Will hair grow back blunter? Are blackheads different from acne? Is dermaplaning ok for ppl w blackheads? Dermatology.

Is dermaplaning bad for acne? Will hair grow back blunter? Are blackheads different from acne? Is dermaplaning ok for ppl w blackheads? Dermatology.

Yes, no, yes, maybe: Dermaplaning over active acne is not a good idea; it increases the risk of infection & scarring. Hair grows back normally, since dermaplaning is basically a very close shave. Blackheads are plugged oil glands, and the most basic lesion of acne, but blackheads by themselves are not acne per se. Dermaplaning will probably not make blackheads worse, but it is not a treatment for blackheads either. ...Read more

Hairloss 10mnth now and eyebrows anf eyelashe scalp biopsy normal. dermatology say fungus infection. y im still lossing my hair and eyebrows.

Fungus on biopsy?: The biopsy should have shown fungus, if it is present. How long have you been treated with the antifungals? Have you had any bloodwork? Eyebrows and eyelash involvement merit a work up including thyroid, ferritin, and ANA, especially since your other symptoms include fatigue and headache. ...Read more
