Fort Skin

Skin cancer is by far the most common type of cancer. The videos in the collection below explain skin cancer risk factors and how to reduce your risk, what you should be looking for on your skin, and treatments. There are also personal stories about melanoma and basal cell carcinoma skin cancer.

Objectives: To compare effectiveness of video-based education with that of verbal education for giving informed consent and providing postprocedure wound care instructions in patients undergoing skin biopsies.

Methods: In this randomized controlled trial, participants were randomized to receive either video education on portable video devices or conventional verbal instructions regarding skin biopsies. Participants completed a skin-biopsy knowledge assessment, patient satisfaction assessment and evaluation of educational medium. Main outcome measures were differences in the changes in the prestudy and poststudy knowledge assessment scores, patient satisfaction and evaluation of the educational medium.

Results: Eight-four patients undergoing skin biopsies at the University of California Davis dermatology clinic participated in the study. Participants in the control group had a nonstatistically significant increase in knowledge score (mean SD 112 174), whereas those in the video group had a statistically significant increase in knowledge score (mean SD 155 171). The difference in knowledge scores between the video and verbal groups was not statistically significant. Participants in both groups were highly satisfied with the biopsy education. On a 10-point scale, the mean SD usefulness and appeal of the videos were 901 15 and 901 166, respectively.

Conclusions: Our study demonstrated a significant increase in knowledge score following video education, but not following oral education. Although between-group comparisons did not achieve statistical significance, portable video media for presenting informed consent and wound care instructions for skin biopsies appear to be more effective and result in higher satisfaction than traditional oral education.

Methods: A total of 140 professional and consumer videos uploaded between 2007 and 2014 were identified and coded. Coding involved identifying and sorting followed by gathering descriptive information, including length of the video, number of views, and year uploaded. A dichotomous coding scheme (ie, yes or no) was used in coding specific aspects of video content, including provision of information, type of skin cancer, age group, family history, risk reduction, risk factors, fear, and home remedies for skin cancer treatment.

Results: The majority of videos provided information related to screening. Many consumer videos conveyed information related to the use of a black salve as a home remedy for skin cancer, despite the fact that there is no evidence that it is an effective treatment.

A total of 140 professional and consumer videos uploaded between 2007 and 2014 were identified and coded by 1 researcher (RR); 10 were re-coded by 2 researchers (CHB and RR) to demonstrate that the coding was completed in a consistent way. Coding involved an identifying and sorting process followed by gathering descriptive information, including length of the video, number of views, and year uploaded. A dichotomous coding scheme (ie, yes or no) was used in coding specific aspects of video content, including provision of information, type of skin cancer, age group, family history, risk reduction, risk factors, fear, and home remedies for skin cancer treatment.

Additionally, none of these popular videos were posted by a US governmental health agency. Given that prevention and control of skin cancer is a goal of multiple agencies of the US Public Health Service as well as non-profit agencies, the lack of widely viewed communications on this topic represents a missed opportunity for disease prevention and health promotion. The number of views was sizeable, though it is not distinguishable whether the views represent unique users.

Skin cancer is the most common of all cancers. It's highly curable when detected early. Most skin cancers are classified as nonmelanoma, meaning they arise from cells in the skin other than pigment-producing cells called melanocytes. Nonmelanoma cancer isn't likely to spread, and it's usually easily removed.

Melanoma typically begins as a mole. If you identify it early and it hasn't spread, it can be surgically treated. Here you see the mole being removed, along with surrounding skin. The extra skin is taken to ensure that no cancer cells are left behind.

Melanoma is dangerous because it can spread beyond what you can see, moving deep into your skin where it can gain access to your lymphatic vessels. This allows cancer cells to travel to distant locations in your body. Cancer cells can also travel to different parts of your body by way of your blood vessels.

Our human ancestors in Africa likely had dark skin, which is produced by an abundance of the pigment eumelanin in skin cells. In the high ultraviolet (UV) environment of sub-Saharan (or equatorial) Africa, darker skin protects against the damaging effects of UV radiation. Anthropologist Dr. Nina Jablonski explains that the variation in skin color that evolved since our human ancestors migrated out of Africa can be explained by the trade-off between protection from UV and the need for some UV absorption for the production of vitamin D.

How We Get Our Skin Color explains the connections between the anatomy and function of our skin, particularly in relation to our health. Students learn about the roles of the different layers of cells in skin and dive deeper into the functions of melanocytes, a type of cell that produces the pigment melanin. The animation also explores the relationships between melanin, skin color, vitamin D synthesis, and protection against the harmful effects of UV radiation.

Beauty Box Video is simple and automatic to use. This skin retouching and digital makeup plugin automatically identifies skin tones and creates a mask that limits the smoothing effect to the skin areas. Just apply the video filter, let it analyze the footage, set a few smoothing options, and let the plugin render to make skin retouching incredibly easy. That's it!

The Beauty Box Video skin retouching plugin acts as digital makeup in post-production by incorporating state-of-the-art face and skin detection and smoothing algorithms. It takes the edge off of skin and makeup problems that can be visible with HD and 4K video. Realistically and quickly applying digital makeup that makes your talent look great, without making them look airbrushed or blurry. Making for happy talent and producers.

Beauty Box Video 5.0 takes the best selling and most awarded skin smoothing technology available and gives it realtime rendering (on some GPUs). Beauty Box already had the best automatic masking and skin retouching capabilities of any plugin and now it has incredibly fast rendering as well! We used CUDA and OpenGL to give Beauty Box Video realtime or near realtime rendering. Your talent will be just as beautiful as ever, but now you won't have to wait to smooth wrinkles and blemishes!

Video editors and artists no longer have to manually create skin smoothing masks or retouch video frame by frame. Beauty Box automatically identifies the skin tones and removes imperfections, like digital makeup, while leaving important facial details sharp. It's used by such companies as Park Road Post Production, NBC, and Universal Music. Beauty Box is a powerful tool for any production that requires people to look their best.

Giving yourself smoother skin in a video means that when you look back on a clip, you can focus on the memory rather than that stubborn pimple on your chin. A memory is for life, and you shouldn't let a small blemish ruin it. Plus, if you're having a great hair and makeup day, you shouldn't let something small stop you from sending a cute selfie to your crush.

Remember, having awesome skin isn't the most important thing in the world. But if you are feeling a bit self-conscious and want to take your selfie to the next level, don't be afraid to play around with editing. Just remember to take a step back and check how much editing you've done, or you might end up looking like Barbie or Ken!

In a positive review, Imani Bashir of Teen Vogue described the song as a "celebration of dark-skinned women".[6] Amanda Mitchell at O, The Oprah Magazine complimented the song for being "unapologetically and fearlessly Black".[2] Time magazine praised Blue Ivy Carter's appearance, calling it a "gracious cameo".[7] Ellise Shafer of Billboard noted that she added a "sentimental tone to the track".[3] Alexis Petridis writing for The Guardian pinpointed "Brown Skin Girl" as one of the album highlights, describing it as "brilliant".[8] 041b061a72
