Dermatology. 2012 Jul 4; Authors: Peuvrel L, QuÃƒÂ©reux G, Brocard A, Saint-Jean M, Vallet C, MÃƒÂ¨re A, Labetoulle G, Le Fol C, DrÃƒÂ©no B Abstract Background: Apparent skin lesions can impair quality of life (QoL). Objective: To assess QoL improvement brought by a medical corrective make-up lesson and its daily use in practice using the Dermatology Life Quality Index (DLQI). Methods: Patients with facial disorders participating during 2 years in our lessons conducted by a trained nurse were included in an open prospective study. Results: 86 patients aged 4-79 years were included. They suffered from acne (25), rosacea (10), scars (14) and various dermatoses (19). 63 patients (73%) sent back the questionnaire. One-month DLQI improvement was significant (p < 0.001) in acne (p = 0.006) as well as rosacea (p = 0.036), with a trend for scars (p = 0.057). QoL significantly improved, independently of a low (p < 0.001) or high (p = 0.006) initial DLQI. Since the lesson, 95% of patients re-made up with 97% of good tolerance. Conclusion: This is the first study examining at-home make-up completion and showing the beneficial effect of a medical corrective make-up lesson on the QoL of patients with various facial dermatoses in France.PMID: 22759904 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher] http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/PubMed/22759904?dopt=Abstract = URL to article Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
