Evaluation and comparison of the efficacy and safety of 3 different modalities of treatment for dark circles that function via different modes of action.In total, 45 female patients with periorbital hyperpigmentation were randomly selected to participate from those attending the outpatient dermatology clinic of Al-Zahraa University Hospital within a 6-month period. Facial hypermelanosis is a significant cause of cosmetic disfigurement, social embarrassment and psychological morbidity affecting quality of life.To study clinicoepidemlogic patterns of facial hypermelanoses among men.Medical records of all adult males presenting with facial hypermelanoses were analyzed for this retrospective cross sectional study for demographic details, duration, cosmetic usage, sun exposure, drug intake, infections, systemic or cutaneous diseases, and family history of hypermelanotic dermatosis. Management of periorbital hyperpigmentation (POH) is still a therapeutic challenge. Short-term mucocutaneous adverse effects are well documented with imatinib. To describe the prevalent side effects of prostaglandin analogues (PA) in a Hispanic population and their effect on quality of life (QOL).This is a cross-sectional study conducted in a tertiary medical facility in which patients were evaluated in a single visit. <p>INTRODUCTION: Microneedling procedures are growing in popularity for a wide variety of skin conditions. Dichotomous dermatologic depictions of heroes and villains in movies have been used since the silent film age.To evaluate the hero-villain skin dichotomy in film by (1) identifying dermatologic findings of the all-time top 10 American film villains, (2) comparing these dermatologic findings to the all-time top 10 American film heroes quantitatively and qualitatively, and (3) analyzing dermatologic portrayals of film villains in depth.In this cross-sectional study, dermatologic findings for film heroes and villains in mainstream media were identified and compared quantitatively using a χ2 test with α < .05, as well as qualitatively. Studies have shown melasma lesions to be distributed across the face in centrofacial, malar, and mandibular patterns. Periorbital hyperpigmentation (POH) is a common hyperpigmentary problem of the face, which can be psychologically distressing and it can influence an individual's quality of life. Periorbital Melanosis (POM) is a very common esthetic condition, yet there is no definite treatment modality. A 20-year-old woman underwent lacrimal gland biopsy for unilateral swelling and was unexpectedly found to have olive-green discoloration of her orbital rim. Dark circles (DC), seen in the periorbital area, are defined as bilateral, round, homogeneous pigmented macules whose aetiology is thought to be multifactorial. Periorbital hyperpigmentation is a commonly encountered condition. An increase in number of melanocytes in the basal cell layer of the epidermis is an important feature in many disorders of hyperpigmentation. Periorbital wrinkles as a result of photoaging are a frequent cosmetic concern. Resveratrol is an effective anti-aging molecule with diverse biologic activity.
