The 10 Commandments of Cosmetic Dermatology


Cosmetic Dermatology

The pile of snow outside my window gradually melt as the mercury slowly but steadily rises above the zero mark. With the glimmer of spring in the horizon and a glass of vodka in my hand, I start my customary cosmetic dermatology bashing. Henceforth, I will use CD as an acronym for cosmetic dermatology.

CD technologies may appear complex, impressive and sometimes difficult to comprehend. If you remove all the embellishments, CD technologies belong to one of the following: CD commandments if you will..

  1. Skin, recuperating from injury, looks ‘better’.
  2. Skin becomes fairer if tyrosinase is blocked.
  3. Cream on the skin makes it shiny.
  4. Paralysed muscles hide age.
  5. Injecting water adds volume.

If you memorize these five commandments, you are good to go.

CD experts will weave an attractive story out of these and the new generation CROs contrive innovative experiments to create evidence. CD device manufacturers give you the same wine in attractive bottles. If you are a cosmetic dermatologist planning to buy this old wine in new bottle here is my advice:

  1. Be the first one to get a new device.
  2. When others get the same device, claim that you have a different protocol.
  3. When everybody has the same protocol, become a trainer!
  4. Be the first to get a new device, and continue training others on the old one.
  5. Continue the cycle.
