As research into the role of the microbiome continues, physicians are learning more about its role in skin health. Studies have connected imbalances in the skin microbiome with atopic dermatitis, psoriasis, acne — as well as with complications in wound healing. Investigators have now isolated a bacterial protein that appears to play a role in skin renewal. Acting as a postbiotic, this protein can stimulate the skin healing process. The following resources will provide more background into the study findings and their practical implications.
Physicians can harness the knowledge for achieving improved post-procedure outcomes.
Dermatologists and aesthetic medicine physicians generally have a global understanding of the microbiome and its importance as a secondary immune system. What hasn’t been clear until recently and plays a vital role in skin health is the connection between the microbiome and wound repair.
Ted Lain, M.D., M.B.A., dermatologist and chief medical officer at Sanova Dermatology, discusses the microbial factors at work in the wound healing process, studies that shed light on how the microbiome contributes to skin hemeostasis and ways in which these findings are being applied in new products that support skin repair.
