A way to look younger is right under your nose, UCLA-led study finds

From face-lifts to facials and fillers, there ’s no shortage of ways to reduce the inevitable signs of aging. But there’s one cosmetic procedure that most people don’t think about as a tool that can make women look years younger.Rhinoplasty, or cosmetic nose surgery, may make a woman look up to three years younger, according to a new study led by researchers at UCLA that used a type of artificial intelligence known as machine learning.The researchers  used the technology to study before-and-after photos of 100 female patients, ages 16 to 72, all of whom underwent rhinoplasty for cosmetic reasons by a UCLA surgeon and senior author of the study. At 12 or more weeks later, standardized photographs were analyzed with the technology, which  estimates a person’s age by cropping the face from a photograph and then extracting a prediction through an algorithm.“Rhinoplasty is widely recognized as a facial beautification procedure, but it isn’t commonly known for its anti-aging effects,” said Dr. Robert Dorfman, lead author of the study and a resident physician in the division of plastic and reconstructive surgery at the David Geffen School of Medici ne at UCLA. The study was published in the Aesthetic Surgery Journal. Rhinoplasty involves making structural changes to the bone and cartilage through small incisions inside the nose and when necessary a...

Authors: Lisicki M, Schoenen J Abstract Introduction: Most preventive migraine treatments modify the brain's excitation/inhibition balance and/or serotonin metabolism, which likely accounts for their unfavourable adverse effect profile. Novel biological therapies blocking CGRP transmission are effective and much better tolerated, but they are expensive and may not influence brain dysfunctions upstream in the pathophysiological cascade of migraine, including premonitory and aura symptoms. Biochemical and clinical studies suggest that there may be another complimentary treatment strategy, the one that targets the undere...
