With the Summer Meeting of the American Academy of Dermatology (AAD) underway, the Editorial Boards of Cutis and Cosmetic Dermatology have identified sessions that may be of interest to you among others.
To further your education on these important topics in dermatology, select articles in our journal archives will have open access during the AAD meeting.
For studies, review articles, physician columns, and case reports that present the practical side of clinical and appearance-related dermatology to improve patient care, continue to look to original content in Cutis and Cosmetic Dermatology.
Come visit us at booth 903 in the exhibit hall.

New Uses for Fillers
The rapid and continuous progression of aesthetic dermatology has fostered advanced techniques using dermal fillers as noninvasive alternatives in an arena that previously was dominated by cosmetic surgery. In this article, new and emerging uses for fillers and injection techniques utilized by dermatologists are reviewed including emerging facial applications, use of microcannulas and full-face restoration, chest and breast rejuvenation, correction of atrophy and scarring, and augmentation of the forefoot fat pad.
Resident Corner: Molecular Mechanisms of Melanoma
There has been a rapid accumulation of knowledge regarding the altered molecular pathways in melanoma. With the development of target therapies such as vemurafenib and other therapies in clinical trials, melanomas may eventually be classified based on their altered molecular mechanisms. Knowledge of these emerging melanoma subtypes is not only testable on boards but also is important for potentially understanding the future direction of melanoma therapy. This article presents known altered molecular pathways in melanoma, focusing on information that may be tested on boards examinations.
