Fillers, botox

Sandi Berwick, Áine Humble
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...

Skin tightening and improved facial contouring can be achieved through a variety of modalities including traditional facelifts, autologous fat injections, laser resurfacing, laser liposuction fibers, and includes the popular use of botox and synthetic fillers. Facial fat grafting has been helpful in treating the volume deficient aging face and can easily be injected following subcutaneous laser therapy. We will demonstrate in this clinical study that lasers and fat grafting can be used safely in combination with facelifts to improve skin contouring and tightness compared with single therapy...

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...

BACKGROUND: Anti-aging skin care is a growing popular topic in cosmetic and aesthetic fields, and skin care rather then makeup tips draw more attention nowadays. The phenomenon of skin aging includes thinning of skin losses of elasticity and moisture, pigmented spot formation, and wrinkle development. Along with growth in age, the decreased rates of epithelium renewal and cellular recovery as well as the reduced contents of elastin, collagen, and glycosaminoglycans all contribute to creases or folds of skin...

Patients who choose elective procedures such as laser treatments, plastic surgery, Botox, fillers, bioidentical hormone therapy, or alternative medicine will leave your practice if their experience is anything less than favorable. This is true even if they get the results they were seeking. It is up to the office manager to create the right environment and engagement from the staff to ensure sustainability. This article offers seven reasons practices lose patients to the competition, and what to do to course-correct...

PURPOSE: As Botox(®)/filler use has increased in recent years, a growing number of nonaesthetic health professionals have emerged to perform these procedures. Since studies have shown that patients identify training as the most important factor in considering these procedures, this study seeks to summarize the perspective of plastic surgeons regarding these paradigm shifts. METHODS: In the summer of 2013, an eight-question survey was sent to members of ISAPS, ASAPS, and ASPS (approximately 26,113 plastic surgeons globally)...

During the last decade cosmeticfacial procedures have become part of the professional work of both dentists and maxillofacial surgeons. 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...

Until recently, cosmetic dentistry has focused on the use of traditional restorative techniques, bleaching and the so-called facial rejuvenators such as injectable dermal fillers and Botox. More latterly, the short-term use of aesthetic removable aligners and ceramic fixed appliance brackets have been promoted for use by general dental practitioners as a means of minimising the invasive amount of restorative dental treatment that would otherwise be required to achieve the desired degree of aesthetic improvement...

OBJECTIVE: The prevalence of progressive chronic kidney disease (CKD) in children and adults with spina bifida is considerable, rising, and entirely preventable. REMOVING THE CAUSE: PREVENTION OF SPINA BIFIDA: The best prevention of CKD in spina bifida is prevention of spina bifida itself through strategies that include folate supplementation, ideally before pregnancy. THE CAUSE OF CKD: Dysfunctional bladder outlet causes febrile Urinary Tract Infections (UTI), even with clean intermittent catheterization (CIC), and subsequent renal scarring...

Although it was proposed over a century ago that feedback from facial expressions influence emotional experience, tests of this hypothesis have been equivocal. Here we directly tested this facial feedback hypothesis (FFH) by comparing the impact on self-reported emotional experience of BOTOX injections (which paralyze muscles of facial expression) and a control Restylane injection (which is a cosmetic filler that does not affect facial muscles). When examined alone, BOTOX participants showed no pre- to posttreatment changes in emotional responses to our most positive and negative video clips...

Patient satisfaction with botulinum toxin treatment is a key success factor in aesthetic procedures and is governed by the interaction of numerous variables. Duration of effect is important because it influences retreatment intervals as well as affecting cost and convenience to the patient. In order to review the evidence on the duration of benefit associated with various commercial formulations of botulinum toxin, MEDLINE was searched using the following terms: 'botulinum' and 'duration'/'retreatment' (limits: 'clinical trials,' 'meta-analyses,' 'English')...

In contrast to youthful skin, mature skin undergoes well-established clinical and microscopic changes, particularly after menopause. In particular, dermal thinning, loss of dermal collagen and decreased lipid production are complicated by the effects of life-long sun exposure. These changes manifest as wrinkling, loss of elasticity, dryness and textural changes that characterize mature skin. To effectively combat these age- and sun-related changes, a multifaceted approach is required. Any treatment for mature skin must address the many causes of skin changes, that is, collagen production, lipid balance and epidermal texture...

BTX-A cosmetic injections around the lip and perioral area take approximately 20 minutes of clinical time to perform. The procedure is a minimally invasive way to provide substantial cosmetic improvement to the signs of aging around the lips and can provide an adjunct to lip augmentation. Incorporating this new treatment into your clinical practice requires additional training. It is best to attend training on both BTX-A injectable fillers for a complete education. (There a many more techniques and injection locations for different lip and perioral cosmetic effects)...

The past 5 years in the United States have seen an explosion in the popularity of noninvasive aesthetic procedures. Not only have fillers and Botox turned out to be fantastically reliable and effective aesthetic tools, but also they have vastly expanded the accessibility of cosmetic procedures. Our cosmetic filler options are growing quickly as more and more fillers are coming before the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), seeking entry into the lucrative U.S. market. This article outlines the approval process that foreign fillers go through in their home countries and gives an idea of the fillers that are currently under consideration by the FDA...

The author uses combination volume rejuvenation therapy (CVRT) in patients who desire facial rejuvenation with minimal downtime. He describes how the combined use of relatively large doses of multiple injectables-including fat, pharmaceutical soft tissue fillers, and Botox-permits simultaneous volume rejuvenation of most facial areas with or without excisional surgery.
