Hello, my name is Zoe Diana Draelos. I am a dermatologist and president of Dermatology Consulting Services [in High Point, North Carolina]. I'm also the medical editor for Dermatology Times. I'm really excited about the upcoming meeting in Las Vegas, Nevada, for Fall Clinical. I will be speaking there on an update on cosmeceuticals and what's new in cosmeceuticals. It's personalization of sunscreens: personalization of all kinds of sunscreens, sensitive skin sunscreens, anti-aging sunscreens, sunscreens with vehicles designed for the face of each individual person. But that's not all. Cosmeceuticals are also becoming personalized, how using your own skin tissue that's cultured and using your own fibroblast conditioned media. You now can make cosmeceuticals that have growth factors that are endogenous, that are autologous, that are yours. Furthermore, we're also seeing expanded uses of platelet-rich plasma. Again, slight growth factors being repositioned to the face from the serum. So personalization is really where it's at in cosmeceuticals, using things that work with your bodies, specifically with your DNA and your background. So I'm looking forward to sharing with everybody this lecture and I'm looking forward to seeing you at Fall Clinical. Thank you so much.
