Calorie Restricted Diets and Aging
Researchers have identified the transcription factor that may hold the key to reversing age-related cellular changes.

Several studies have shown that calorie-restricted diets increase life span. But how? In an effort to understand the mechanisms by which caloric restriction prolongs life, a team of researchers from the United States and China built single-cell and single-nucleus transcriptomic atlases across various tissues of aging rats.

For their paper, “Caloric Restriction Reprograms the Single-Cell...

Molly Sims SoME Skincare Brand Ambassador

Aesthetics Biomedical (ABM), an aesthetics product development corporation, has welcomed Molly Sims as brand ambassador for its SoME Skincare That's All You line—a patented, clinically proven, first-of-its-kind personalized PRP skincare product for at-home use.

Supermodel and actor Sims has been a longtime advocate for the skincare benefits of PRP. “Years ago my dermatologists introduced me to PRP in conjunction with microneedling treatments. I instantly became obsessed with it, so it was a dream come true when I found out that Aesthetics Biomedical developed SoME, because I now have the unprecedented ability to harness the benefits of PRP at home in my daily skincare,” she says.

The patient’s own PRP is added to the specially formulated SoME serum to create a personalized topical that harnesses the power of proven antiaging ingredients along with the patient’s own growth factors.

“We are huge fans of Molly and really admire her authentic approach to sharing beauty expertise with this amazing community she's built on multiple platforms. She is a tremendously talented model and actress, but also has a gift of being able to connect with people from every background and region because of her down-to-earth...

OCR Issues Guidance on Telehealth Remote Communications Following Its Notification of Enforcement Discretion

On March 20, the Office for Civil Rights (OCR) at the U.S Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) issued guidance on telehealth remote communications following its Notification of Enforcement Discretion during the COVID-19 nationwide public health emergency.

The Notification, issued earlier this month, announced, effective immediately, that OCR is exercising its enforcement discretion to not impose penalties for HIPAA violations against healthcare providers in connection with their good faith provision of telehealth using communication technologies during the COVID-19 nationwide public health emergency.

The new guidance is in the form of frequently asked questions (FAQs) and clarifies how OCR is applying the Notification to support the good faith provision of telehealth. Some of the FAQs include:

    What covered entities are included and excluded under the Notification?
    The Notification of Enforcement Discretion issued by the HHS Office for Civil Rights (OCR) applies to all healthcare providers that are covered by HIPAA and provide telehealth services during the emergency.

Skinbetter Science Launches Online Purchasing

Skinbetter Science has launched an online store, Practice Connect Purchase Portal, to give patients more flexible access to its products. The company has historically limited distribution of its products to brick-and-mortar practices to protect the practice-patient relationship. But like many other brands during this time, the company is adapting to meet the needs of consumers who are stuck at home, with no access to the physician-dispensed skin care they love or that is being recommended during telemedicine consultations. In keeping true to its core values, patients can access the portal on www.skinbetter.com and purchase products by selecting an Authorized Physician Partner.

Rewarding Employees

Think of your most valuable employees—the ones who know the ins and outs of your practice, keep your office running smoothly, and are respected and liked by patients and staff. Now suppose those star staffers suddenly quit. How would that affect your day-to-day practice and profits?


Owners of thriving aesthetic practices know that knowledgeable, motivated, long-term employees are key to their success. And it’s not just high turnover rates that can damage a practice. Unhappy, dissatisfied team members can also wreak havoc on your bottom line. “If staff members are not happy, it can... more »

Calming the Storm

Patients who suffer from rosacea may exhibit any number of uncomfortable symptoms, from flushing and dilated capillaries to papules, pustules and ocular irritation. Treatment options similarly vary, as do theories as to what the underlying causes of rosacea may be. While recent research highlights cardiovascular links and explores the potential role of facial microorganisms, experts agree that the best treatments for rosacea target the chronic inflammation of the skin and body, and require a holistic approach to patient care. Patients most commonly present with erythematotelangiectatic... more »

Compassionate Care

At age six, Julius Few, MD, already knew exactly what he wanted to be when he grew up: a doctor—specifically, a surgeon. His inspiration: Dr. Quincy, a forensic pathologist played by actor Jack Klugman in the 1970s television series Quincy M.E. Of course, Dr. Quincy’s fictitious patients were dead, but that fact escaped the young Julius Few.


“Quincy was a sleuth,” says Dr. Few. “When I saw him operating on people, I thought that was the coolest thing and I knew that was what I wanted to do.”


Today, Dr. Few is the director and founder of The Few Institute for... more »
