Positive results from a study investigating non-thermal Nano-Pulse Stimulation as a treatment for cutaneous non-genital warts have led to a larger multicenter study that is looking to optimize treatment parameters and hopefully replicate the early evidence of its efficacy and safety.

A cohort study reveals the dose-response association between cumulative number of sessions and cutaneous squamous cell carcinoma (cSCC) risk in women was the same regardless of duration of use or age at indoor tanning initiation.
Nano-Pulse Stimulation has shown efficacy in clearing benign cutaneous lesions, and may also have the potential to treat malignancies, says this expert.
Topical halobetasol propionate 0.01% lotion appears to safely and quickly improve lower-extremity psoriatic lesions, according to a recent study.
Early results from the first patients treated for back acne with Nano-Pulse Stimulation in a controlled study show that use of this nonthermal energy modality is providing rapid and sustained clearance of inflammatory lesions, reported Mark Nestor, M.D., Ph.D., at the 2019 annual meeting of the American Society for Dermatologic Surgery.
Abnormal proliferation of the Demodex mites is frequent among patients with erythematotelangiectatic rosacea (ETR), according to one expert.
Evidence that points to interleukin-17 playing a role in the development and progression of rosacea also indicates research should investigate IL-17 inhibition as a therapeutic option for some patients, an expert says.
