AbstractAndrogenetic alopecia (AGA) and acne vulgaris are two conditions commonly seen by dermatologists. Androgens and the androgen receptors play an essential role in the manifestation of both conditions, and some systemic therapies function by interfering in this pathway. The use of topical antiandrogen therapies has gained traction in recent years due to their potential efficacy in treating AGA and acne vulgaris, as well as their reduced adverse effects compared with systemic drugs. This review discusses the role of androgens in skin physiology and pathology and assesses the potential efficacy and safety of three topic...

Tufted hair folliculitis, categorized usually as a variant of folliculitis decalvans, is a clinical condition in which bundles of hair are scattered in the patches of scaring alopecia [1,2]. The fibrosis in the upper dermis is expected to cause gathering of some hair units forming tufts of hairs. The structure and pathogenesis of tufts remain unclear and have been explained only by exhibiting the partial vertical view of a tuft. Here, we implemented three dimensional (3D) analysis for a whole tuft of hair using a digital scanner and a 3D reconstruction software and observed how each hair follicle constructs a tuft of hair.

AbstractNowadays, there is a great attention to the plasma applications in medicine. Not only does cold atmospheric pressure plasma provide a therapeutic opportunity to control redox-based processes, it is also an innovative method in rejuvenation. Given the current interest in new methods of rejuvenation, we aimed to introduce a novel pulsed nitrogen plasma torch with potential use in rejuvenation. We investigated production of reactive species at different  pulse energy by spectroscopy and also measured nitric oxide and O2 concentration and evaluated the flame temperature. Fifteen Wistar rats were divided into three...
