Dr. Kapur is a sought out speaker on anti aging and hormone health and wellness at national and international medical conferences.

Abstract:

Physiological hormone balance is a complex interaction of multiple hormone systems. Not only do hormone levels impact many indicators of cardiovascular disease risk, but lifestyle elements that increase risk, such as dietary choices, sedentary behavior, and increasing obesity, also in turn affect hormone levels. Correcting hormone imbalances therefore involves looking at lifestyle factors that can help bring hormones back into balance as well as supplementation of some hormones to help restore balance, or treatment to reduce stress. This presentation outlines the serious consequences of hormone imbalance for long-term health and cardiovascular wellness, and identifies appropriate screening strategies that can direct lifestyle changes, stress reduction, and possibly hormone supplementation to reduce risk of cardiovascular disease. Brief outline/agenda of the specific points to be covered during the program • Hormones systems that are implicated in cardiovascular health are: reproductive hormones (estrogens/androgens): insulin and growth hormones: cortisol and catecholamines. • The declining hormone levels in both men and women as they age, which can contribute to abdominal fat storage, reduced muscle mass, and decreased physical activity, as well as the converse effects of obesity and reduced physical activity on the hormone levels and overall balance. • The biochemical changes caused by stress, including hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal axis stimulation leading to high cortisol, and increased catecholamine production leading to increased blood pressure and consequent cardiovascular risk. • Physiological effects of chronically high cortisol, including suppressed immune function, reduced sex hormone levels, reduced growth hormone, hyperglycemia, reduced bone density, increased clotting factors. • Studies of hormone supplementation (estrogens, androgens, and growth hormone) and how this has affected visceral obesity and risk of cardiovascular disease. • The use of screening tests for cardio metabolic risk factors so that appropriate lifestyle changes can be suggested to bring down overall risk.

Title: E-lots-epidemic of losing our terminal strands

Time : 09:50-10:10

Biography:

Marvelette L. Jackson completed her Cosmetology training at Pivot Point International Inc., Evanston, IL, USA at the age of 19. She received her Instructors License at Dudley Beauty College, Chicago, IL, USA, at the age of 38 and her Trichology Diploma and Certification at the National Trichology Training Institute (NTTI), Stockbridge, GA at the age of 41 and is currently the CEO TrichoScience Clinic and Institute of TrichoScience Education (ITSE).She has written more than twenty reports and is currently working on publishing two books. She currently serves as a member of the American Health & Beauty Aid Institute (AHBAI) Task Force,1stanti-Basileus and Dean of Pledgee’s in Lambda Chi Psi Omega, chapter of Alpha Chi Pi Omega Sorority and Fraternity Inc.

Abstract:

Epidemic of losing our terminal strands is a rapidly growing epidemic without discrimination in today’s society. Recent studies have shown that more than 70 million people are suffering from hair loss; there are over 75 different types of alopecia and 36 types of disorders. Men and women are losing hair at the same rate; 20% of people lose hair in their 20's; 30% in their 30's-40's; and 50% in their 50's. The American Academy of Dermatology (AAD) notes that 80 million men and women in America have hereditary hair loss. Although it is more prevalent in older adults, excessive hair loss can even occur in children. Case by case studies performed at TrichoScience Clinic, USA. Concluded harsh styling choices, poor nutrition and genetics to play a large role in E LOTS One can indulge on vitamin and mineral supplements to stimulate follicular hair growth however, a diet lacking healthy plant based nutrients could counteract the benefits of the supplements. Digested food is absorbed into the blood stream and nourishes the womb of every terminal hair strand. Chemically processed food containing imitation fatty oils will clog the follicular womb thereby suffocating terminal strands and eventually cause hair loss. Literature was collected from different sources including but not limited to; Relevant Research, Inc., DS Laboratories-Julia Michelle “Poor diet & hair loss” and Monique. Querying/research data base is primarily done through case studies, partnerships/research groups and internships. Keen selections on treatment vary depending on diagnosis, prognosis and individual situation and dedication to the process. Hair is one of the body’s most metabolically-active tissues, often reflecting the first signs of internal disturbance. The hair and scalp are equally as important as other areas of the body in the overall assessment of your health. All too often you may go for a medical checkup that does not include hair and scalp examinations. With the inclusion of this factor in the overall examination a number of medical conditions that initially include doctors allow for early detection and therefore can be treated much sooner. This science is very important and rapidly growing with an esteemed place in the health care and beauty industries.

Title: An Anti-aging approach to skin wellness

Time : 10:30-10:50

Speaker
Biography:

Dr. Sanjay Kapur, Scientific Director at ZRT Laboratory in Beaverton, Oregon has strong interests in development of new anti-aging testing methodologies and innovative laboratory procedures and conducts research into new applications of clinical laboratory testing at ZRT. He has extensive experience in hormone research and has served in several lead positions directing large research studies involving development of novel laboratory tests and technologies related to diabetes, cancer, obesity, and heart disease and hormonal imbalance. In addition to being the Founder Chairman of an Indian Anti-Aging Society (SRAAMI), he serves on Editorial and Scientific Boards of many scientific journals and International Associations. Dr. Kapur is a sought out speaker on anti aging and hormone health and wellness at national and international medical conferences.

Abstract:

Skin health is a major concern, especially in ageing women. It is no coincidence that the decline in hormone levels as people age parallels the decline in skin properties frequently associated with ageing. Hormones are intrinsically involved with processes affecting the maintenance of skin health, such as collagen content, skin lipid levels, elasticity, wound healing, glycoaminoglycan content, and facial hair patterns. This program addresses the importance of hormones in skin wellness, but also cautions women and men seeking to reverse skin deterioration by using hormone replacement. Hormonal deficiencies can be identified with minimally invasive laboratory testing and treated with hormones replacement to improve overall health and wellness as well as to mitigate the effects of ageing. However, hormones replacement should be done with appropriate monitoring to ensure physiological hormone levels are achieved. The irresponsible use of topical or systemic hormones for cosmetic purposes cannot be recommended, and it is important to understand the powerful effects of hormones throughout the body. The cosmetic and anti-ageing industry is big business. Yet a major culprit for the skin thinning, wrinkling, and dryness associated with ageing is the decline in hormones such as estrogen and progesterone in women, and testosterone in men. This program examines the relationship between hormones and skin properties and explores the effects of hormone replacement on some of the skin problems associated with hormonal decline. While hormone replacement cannot be recommended solely for cosmetic purposes, proper monitoring of hormone levels in an ageing population can help identify deficiencies that can be resolved with judicious hormone use, which may have the added benefit of improving skin wellness and thereby saving substantial costs in cosmetic treatments. Brief outline/agenda of the specific points to be covered during the program • The skin is one of the main targets of estrogen action. Facial skin on the face expresses much higher concentrations of estrogen receptors than the skin of the breast or the thigh. • The menopausal decline in estrogen levels contributes to deterioration in skin health in a number of ways: These include wrinkling, dryness, thinning, reduced collagen content, slower wound healing, and loss of elasticity. • Obese men and women often have improved skin health due to higher estrogen levels as a result of increased aromatase activity in fat and skin tissue. • Studies of estrogen replacement therapy have shown some improvement in those skin properties affected by low estrogen levels, e.g. increased collagen content, skin thickness, and skin elasticity. HRT has also been found to increase skin surface lipids, which enhances the barrier function and may prevent dryness.

John Vincent is one of the most knowledgeable and respected experts in the field of hair replacement today and is involved in many aspects hair loss solutions. He is certified Master of Hair Replacement techniques by the American Hair Loss Council. From the prompting of his physician colleagues, john witnessed the first commercial low level laser light hair therapy treatment (LHT )machine, first imported into the U.S. in the 90's with healthy skepticism. He immediately saw the benefits of a no-risk, non-medical treatment that really worked ! for the one in four women and 50% of all men who suffer from thinning hair. John starting working with the most prestigious LHT machine in 1995, the Sunetics ® Corporation laser. His many contacts with hair transplant doctors led to his introducing the technology for hair restoration practices. Today, it is estimated that more than 50% of all such doctors use or advocate LHT for retaining native hair and restoring weak, thinning hair. He has owned and operated his own laser hair growth clinic in San Luis Obispo, California, with his long-time friend and now medical advisor, dermatologist Bradley Kurgis, D.O. They have been successfully treating men and women with clinical and home use devices since 2007.

Abstract:

More and more people between the ages of 35 to 55 years-old nowadays will choose a minimally invasive aesthetic procedure over surgery. Their main motivation is downtime and morbility. Cost is also a consideration. As a surgeon I have realized that a lot of the solutions can be better achieved with minimally invasive procedures rather than surgery. In this lecture I want to share with the audience my experience in this field as many patients want to avoid surgery, and also because some patients that come for consultation with the idea of a facial plastic surgery, are recommended by me to better choose a minimally invasive treatment. I call this a “quick face design”, or “facial sculpture”, in which I mix several procedures at the same time. This produces very fast and pleasant results, minimizing risk, downtime, scars and cost.

Title: What solutions to hair loss?

Time : 15:00-15:20

Speaker
Biography:

Dr. Alexandra Dalu, was born on April 4, 1975 at Harfleur en Haute Normandie en France, after obtaining my high school degree in La Havre, I intended to follow my a passion in Human Science, and achieve my goal as a medical doctor. I was graduated from Paris V Universite Necker Enfant- Malade /Rene Descartes. I have obtained my doctorate with honorable appreciation from the committee, for my thesis on the topic of obesity and its application to social psychology bariatric surgery. This was the first thesis carried out on this subject which has been recognized by the internationally renowned jury of eminent psychiatrists, surgeons and endocrinologists. After having worked nearly 15 years in the hospital in the Emergency department, I decided to return to the option to switch between other degrees, directed towards anti-aging medicine. Certainly, this kind of a specialty has always inspired me, due to my belief in the saying Prevention is better than cure. It includes nutrition, micro nutrition, aesthetic medicine, endocrinology, herbal medicine, psychology, management of sleep, the preparation of athletes and management of welfare as a whole, while managing and controlling the treatment of medical pathologies. This kind of well-being has been recognized in the USA, and had taken my attention when I was a teenager travelling to the US to visit my American family friends. All these capsules, plants, vitamins, this culture of well-being, performance and the improvement of the self-appealed to me since this plays a very important role in maintaining a healthy lifestyle. This Preventive Medicine has very recently been recognized and become important in France, as well. In addition, I have also obtained my degree mesotherapy to treat, heal pain and illness of all kinds including tendinitis and migranes. Mesotherapy is a very interesting technique in the field of anti-aging medicine, because it is used both to inject herbs, vitamins and Oligo elements in the scalp, tendons and articulations to treat the deficit of venous, which is responsible for cellulite in women and sensation of heavy legs. Currently, I am practicing at my cabinet office in Paris. I am as well a consultant doctor and guest speaker (conference) for Laboratories de complements aliment Aires Oligosante. I am also a columnist in the health sections for the online site Allo media.

Abstract:

Alopecia affects both men and women. 20% of women would be affected and about 60 % of men. At present, few treatments are effective. Recalls that the indication transplant requires still have hair alive. It is therefore important to have a comprehensive care of the fall of the earliest possible hair. One of the best techniques for treating hair loss and stimulate regrowth is the combination of mesotherapy sessions and sessions of LED (light emitting diode) . Causes? Alopecia is the decrease in the density of hair. It may be diffuse or localized acute or chronic. There are different causes: androgenic alopecia, polycystic ovary syndrome , thyroid dysfunction , vitamin deficiencies , overly restrictive diets , stress , overwork , physiological falls in autumn or post-delivery. The alopecia is classified according to two classifications of incipient baldness : Hamilton humans and Ludwig women. Treatments: Treatments are always complementary and used to optimize the effectiveness of fall arrest and promote regrowth. More support from falling early, treatment is more effective. A clinical examination and a blood test is needed in order to assess the treatment protocol adapts to each patient. Thus prescribed lotions such as Minoxidil 2 % or 5 and / or Stemoxydine ( Neogenic Vichy Dercos ) . This new biomimetic of a hypoxic signal molecule stimulates the stem cells of the lower reservoir of the follicle that are located in a hypoxic environment rich in CD34 + . It has been a reduction in the CD34 + essential to developing hair follicles in alopecia by disturbance of this hypoxic environment . treating shampoos , dietary supplements ( Oligophan and Gynovital Chaste in OLIGOSANTE ) , allopathic treatments orally if necessary, and therefore sessions LED ( light contractor ) associated to mesotherapy How? Mesotherapy is recognized in the treatment of alopecia all causes medical technology. The protocol includes four injections a week of the first month interval , then 2 injections at 15 days interval of 2 months. These injections are preceded by the 30-minute session of LED . Mesotherapy acts on the stimulation of the scalp microcirculation and therefore will improve the control of seborrhea and its oxygenation . Further , micronutrients , complex multi vitamin , such as vitamins B6 and B5 , silica and hyaluronic acid uncrosslinked , for its visco elastic properties , will rehydrate and allow regeneration of the bulb and its regeneration. It can be performed manually or with a gun.

He has published more than 60 papers in international Journals and 8 book chapters, and serving on an editorial board member of Analytical Chemistry Insights.

Abstract:

EPR (electron paramagnetic resonance) spin-probe method along with spectral simulation was used to investigate structural changes of various stratum corneum (SC). The SC was stripped consecutively from one to three or four times using a glass plate coated with a cyanoacrylate resin. Aliphatic spin probes, 5-doxylstearic acid (5-DSA) and 3β-doxyl-5α-cholestane (CHL), were used to evaluate the SC ordering. EPR spectrum of 5-DSA incorporated in the SC demonstrated a characteristic peak for the first strip. A slow-tumbling simulation for 5-DSA showed clear differences in EPR intensities as well as ordering values (S0) of the SC for control and terpenes treated SC. In addition, a little, broad three-line pattern of 5-DSA in psoriasis vulgaris stratum corneum (pv-SC) was observed. The spectral pattern of pv-SC is quite different from those of control SC reported. The S0-values obtained for the pv-SC and the control were approximately 0.20 and 0.49, respectively. The statistical analysis suggests that the 0.20 value of pv-SC is significantly smaller than the 0.49 value of the control (p < 0.01). The results suggest that the pv-SC is less rigid of the structure than that of the control SC, indicating irregular architecture of pv-SC. Therefore, the present EPR results can be useful for analyses of various SC.

Title: Perfumery & cosmetic sciences – ‘Permanent makeup – is it safe?’

Time : 15:55-16:15

Speaker
Biography:

Liane Zabel has completed the Academy of hairdressing/cosmetician in Germany as a master craftsman of hairdressing and cosmetics at the age of 26 years after she made her hairdresser licence at the age of 18 years. She worked as a hairdresser and cosmetic teacher for theory and practice in the vocational school in Germany for 15 years. She got her licence as a permanent makeup artist in 1991, worked successfully as a hairdresser/permanent makeup artist and trainer for micro pigmentation in Germany and Spain in her own companies before she moved to Canada in 2008. In Canada, she is working in her own beauty company as permanent makeup artist and she does Non-Laser Tattoo removal. She is the owner of MTC-Derm, a beauty service company focused on micro pigmentation and non-laser tattoo removal services in California.

Abstract:

Permanent Makeup – In the hands of a skilled person, the procedures are generally safe. Permanent makeup is considered micro pigmentation, similar to tattoos. It involves using a needle to place pigmented granules beneath the upper layers of the skin. Permanent makeup must be called what it really is: a tattoo, a cosmetic tattoo! When we talk about risk or safety, what do we mostly mean? 1.Allergic reactions 2.Blood-borne diseases 3.Redness and swelling. 4.Removal of permanent makeup 5.MRI complications We have also to talk about the colors/pigments/Ink. 'FDA-approved colors' -- a red flag Don't be lured by ads claiming a practitioner uses FDA-approved colors. "Stay away," says (Dr. Zwerling, AAM). "They're misrepresenting themselves and the profession." FDA approves colors only for specified end uses. When someone says "FDA-approved colors," you have no way of knowing whether the approval applies to cosmetics, food, or automotive paint, but one thing is certain: no color additive has ever been FDA-approved for injection into the skin. Permanent Makeup can be safe if we know what we do and if we work with safe products (Colors).

Abstract:

INTRODUCTION The future of cosmetic research and development lies in the hands of practicing cosmetologists and establishing relationships with others in the medical profession, chemists--and the nature of science that brings us together. A great alternative approach to skin, health and hair care lies in educating the salon professional, so that she in turn, enlightens the client and consumers whose lifestyles and shopping behaviors, in some capacity, she influences. There is a huge disconnect between the practicing cosmetologist who knows the anatomy, physiology and engineering used in our field, and those who don’t. The tendency for us is to focus on the cosmetic, beautiful if you will, side of the business that fosters us to use our creativity as art. Rare is there, the practitioner who curiously seeks the knowledge of uncovering hair and scalp problems and an understanding of the scientific approaches used to combat these issues. For those of us that do, what binds us is our innate skill set for research methodology, quality assurance and superior product development. SUMMARY The challenge, then and now, is how to get cosmetologists motivated about the science and engineering involved in hair science and cosmetic research and development? How to bridge the gap and create dialogue within the medical and research profession? Through this research, I share my views and research on creating excitement around STEM, as it relates to cosmetology and in an effort to introduce advancements in trichology, cosmetic formulation, product development and marketing.

Biography:

Liz Bardelas is PT; MBA is CEO of Bea Professional Brands. She attended De La Salle University, Columbia University and Pepperdine University.

Abstract:

The flourishing skincare and cosmetics industry offers opportunity for growth for small businesses. Cosmeceuticals climbed from a near-nothing industry to $3.5 billion in 2009, it grew 1.7 % from 2010 to 2012, and forecasts show that it will increase at an annual rate of 4.0 % to $15.8 billion from 2012 to 2017. The industry‚s contribution to the economy is also expected to increase at a pace that is faster than GDP’s growth rate. But here is the catch. The number of businesses in the industry is also expected to grow. Competition against alternative retailers and among service providers, coupled with the recession and low disposable income, drove businesses to reduce product and service prices. The message is pretty clear; the need to rethink strategy could hardly be more urgent. What strategies will give small retailers competitive advantage? Which economic driver has the most influence on this industry? Who are its major markets? A growing healthy culture is inspiring “ back-to-basics ” and “function-beyond- beauty ” trends. This consumer-driven initiative bridges cosmetics to medicine and changed the way our consumers shop. So far, only a number of brands are catered to these wellness-conscious buyers. For an industry that was controlled by department stores, this niche market provides an opening for small businesses. This talk will place the scale of the skincare and cosmetics industry in perspective and aims to help small retailers overcome the barriers to penetrating unfamiliar markets.

Abstract:

In this presentation the author will be looking at other effects of this fascinating and highly potent molecule; • Antidepressant response to Botulinum toxin A was seen in people with major depressive disorders. There are several randomised controlled trials now completed on depressed and non-depressed subjects who have simply been treated for glabellar lines. • Effect of Botulinum toxin A on cytokine synthesis in a cell culture model of cutaneous scarring. This type of work leads the way for use of the molecule to eliminate scar formation. • The potential effect of Botulinum toxin A dermal fibroblasts in an in vitro study, highlighting potential uses for wound healing. • Safety and efficacy of intradermal injections of Botulinum toxin A for the treatment of oily skin and which can reduce sebum production in the forehead region. The use of Botulinum toxin A in controlling of idiopathic neck and anterior chest wall flushing, which can be a social handicap to the sufferer especially when current treatment options are often unsatisfactory. Severe flushing of these areas was rapidly and effectively resolved. • In psoriasis and hyperhidrosis, Botulinum toxin was used to successfully to treat both conditions. The psoriasis lesions on the trunk of extremities had completely cleared within weeks. • Identification of Fibroblast Growth Factor Receptor 3 (FGFR3 ) as a protein receptor for Botulinum neurotoxin serotype A (BoNT/A ), providing scientific support for the effect of the molecule on fibroblast growth through a potential competition effect.
