Seven women (43 to 64 years old) who had negative or mixed emotions about having Botox and/or facial filler injections to the face to reduce signs of aging were interviewed about the impact of the procedures. Impacts ranged from disappointment to all-encompassing, lingering physical and psychological effects, and some women felt abandoned by the medical industrial complex when they turned to it for help with their symptoms. A feminist phenomenological analysis focused on corporeal, temporal, and relational existential modes of being...

Treatment guidelines are a crucial part of every medical aesthetic practice and must be in place before utilizing aesthetic medical injectables. An "Aesthetic Policy and Procedure Manual" features specific details (e.g., patient assessment, indication, contraindications, warnings and precautions, injection techniques, documentation, etc.) around dermal fillers (e.g., Restylane, Juvéderm, Voluma), hyaluronidase, neurotoxins (e.g., Botox Cosmetic, Dysport, and Xeomin) and Sculptra. This article describes why an "Aesthetic Policy and Procedure" manual is a necessary tool in every aesthetic provider's armamentarium, what it is composed of, as well as how these guidelines serve as a protective mechanism for the aesthetic provider's clinic if legal action is brought against their staff, their medical director, and/or their clinic...

A shift has taken place from invasive surgical treatment towards minimally invasive treatments. Besides the use ofbotulinum toxin type A, non-permanent wrinkle fillers can be an alternative to invasive surgical treatment. Since botulism was first described in the 18th century, the neurotoxin has continued to develop, as a result of which Botox, now available in synthetically produced form, can safely be employed in healthcare...
