Laser Treatment of Scars and Keloids
The use of laser technology for the treatment of existing surgical scars as well as the minimization of new postoperative scars has gained considerable attention from the dermatologic and plastic surgery communities in recent years. This article discusses the principles of scar treatment with both ablative and nonablative lasers, including the expanded role of fractionated technologies.
Premature Hair Graying
Hair pigmentation and graying are important topics for the understanding of the physiology of aging; the differentiation of stem cells; and the mechanisms underlying disease processes such as progeroid syndromes, vitiligo, and hypothyroidism. Although hair graying, or canities, is a common process occurring in people as they age, an unknown percentage of individuals experience premature graying from familial inheritance or pathologic conditions.
Skin Cancer in Skin of Color
Differences exist in the epidemiology, clinical presentation, and prognosis of skin cancers in skin of color populations. Among Hispanics and black individuals, detection of skin cancers, including both melanoma and nonmelanoma skin malignancies, often is delayed. As a result, there is a poorer overall prognosis for skin cancers among nonwhites compared to non-Hispanic whites.
