With the constant advance of technology and cutting-edge research, new products are more apt to tackle some key issues in skincare today. Read on for the latest buzz in dermatology.
It seems that skin inflammation is a lot worse today than previously thought. Aczone is a new prescription gel that fights acne, mainly by quelling inflammation. Recent research reveals that inflammation is the key cause of acne, rather than clogged pores and bacteria, which the medical establishment has historically believed it to be. Mounting evidence also points to severe skin inflammation as the major cause of psoriasis. If you have psoriasis, you’re also more likely to have increases in aortic inflammation, which is predictive of future cardiac events, i.e., heart damage.
Treatments for skin redness are also red hot these days. Allergan has recently produced a new prescription cream for rosacea called Rhofade. This new drug works as a vasoconstrictor to lessen skin flushing, and was put through rigorous clinical trials in which both the subjects and researchers had to agree with the conclusion. The vast majority conferred that the product did indeed improve the condition of rosacea. Galderma also unveiled its Cetaphil Redness Relieving line, which is formulated with licorice extract, allantoin, and caffeine to soothe and calm dryness-induced irritation.
