Crime Fighting Dermatologists?
For years, police have worked with dentists and anthropologists who are able to reconstruct skeletal remains to identify victims. Lois Gibson, who holds the Guinness World Record for being the "most successful" forensic artist of all time, suggests that dermatologists can be just as important in solving crimes.
"Knowing how someone may have gotten a scar, for example, is a clue investigators could use, " Gibson said.
Dermatologists can use forensic drawings of a described scar to determine if it is the result of a burn, a surgical procedure, or trauma (such as a car accident). A scar can actually be identified as "new" or "old" enabling dermatologists to potentially give police an idea or timeline as to when the injury occurred to the skin.
"You never know what detail might solve a crime," said Gibson.

Give Yourself A More Youthful Hand!
If having more youthful appearing hands is on your list of New Year's resolutions, our doctors at AboutSkin have the solutions for you.
Fat loss of the hands leads to prominent veins and tendons, while sun damage over the years leads to brown spots.
Our physicians inject Radiesse, Juvederm, Restylane and Perlane to restore the lost volume and create a fuller youthful look that lasts between 1 year and 18 months. Intense pulsed light laser can then be used the same day to fade the dreaded brown "age spots".
There are still a few openings on our upcoming Filler discount days! For more information or to schedule an appointment, call
