Polycaprolactone-based dermal filler complications: A retrospective study of 1111 treatments.

J Cosmet Dermatol 2020 Jun 2. Epub 2020 Jun 2.

Behavior, Paris, France.

Background: Aging signs can be corrected through volume restoration in multiple soft tissue layers and in the supraperiosteal plane using hyaluronic acid (HA) or nonhyaluronic acid (non-HA) fillers. The non-HA bioresorbable polycaprolactone (PCL)-based filler with collagen-stimulating properties has a proven safety profile, but rare potential complications such as nodules and granuloma can occur. Furthermore, PCL-based fillers cannot be immediately removed by injection of an enzyme. Read More

Managing intravascular complications following treatment with calcium hydroxylapatite: An expert consensus.

J Cosmet Dermatol 2020 Mar 17. Epub 2020 Mar 17.

Falck Clinic, Aesthetic Medicine Centre, Amsterdam, The Netherlands.

Background: Inadvertent intra-arterial injection of dermal fillers including calcium hydroxylapatite (CaHA) can result in serious adverse events including soft tissue necrosis, permanent scarring, visual impairment, and blindness. When intra-arterial injection occurs, immediate action is required for optimal outcomes, but the infrequency of this event means that many physicians may never have experienced this scenario. The aim of this document is to provide evidence-based and expert opinion recommendations for the recognition and management of vascular compromise following inadvertent injection of CaHA. Read More

Polycaprolactone: How a Well-Known and Futuristic Polymer Has Become an Innovative Collagen-Stimulator in Esthetics.

Clin Cosmet Investig Dermatol 2020 20;13:31-48. Epub 2020 Jan 20.

Centro Medico Galeno, Milano 20122, Italy.

Compared to other domains, tissue engineering and esthetics have dramatically expanded in recent years, leading to both major biomedical advances and futuristic perspectives. The two share a common approach based on biomaterials, especially polymers. This paper illustrates this with the example of polycaprolactone (PCL), a polymer synthesized in the early 1930s, and one of its most recent applications, a PCL-based collagen stimulator, a filler used in esthetics.

Botox and Dermal Fillers: Review and Its Role in the Dental Office.

Dent Clin North Am 2020 04 17;64(2):325-339. Epub 2020 Jan 17.

Department of Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery, Woodhull Medical Center, 760 Broadway, Brooklyn, NY 11206, USA.

For the general dentist, the use of BTA and dermal fillers confers the ability to exert control over the soft tissues surrounding the mouth to better create a harmonious smile. The injection of BTA and fillers into the facial musculature and dermis requires a level of finesse to achieve the desired outcomes. A sound understanding of the mechanisms of action and the ability to manage potential complications are also necessary, because the dentist administering BTA and dermal fillers must be competent to the same level as other providers who have traditionally been the gatekeepers of such agents.

Aims: Our aim was to investigate the role of the inflammasome in the formation of filler granuloma, as a central column of the innate immune response. Read More

The Nonsurgical Rhinoplasty: A Retrospective Review of 5000 Treatments.

Plast Reconstr Surg 2020 03;145(3):661-667

London and Birmingham, United Kingdom From Queen Elizabeth Hospital.

Background: Nonsurgical rhinoplasty with injectable dermal fillers has become an increasingly popular alternative to surgical procedures, in view of its relative low cost, convenience and rapid recovery, and low risk profile. The safety and efficacy of nonsurgical rhinoplasty remains a relatively contentious and ambiguous matter, given that there are few large-scale series reporting results or complications. This study reports the experience of a single clinician performing nonsurgical rhinoplasty in the largest cohort to date. Read More

Department of Otolaryngology, Tulane University Medical Center, 1430 Tulane Ave, #8659, New Orleans, LA, 70112, USA.

Background: Medical tourism for cosmetic surgery has become increasingly popular in recent years. The existing literature has identified poor outcomes associated with general cosmetic tourism; however, the complications associated with cosmetic tourism for facial rejuvenation remain poorly understood. The aims of this study are to delineate the risk profile associated with medical tourism for facial rejuvenation. Read More

Cutaneous Protothecosis as an Unusual Complication Following Dermal Filler Injection: A Case Report.

J Clin Aesthet Dermatol 2019 Dec 1;12(12):13-16. Epub 2019 Dec 1.

Drs. El Hoshy, Abdel-Halim, El-Nabarawy, and Shalaby are with the Dermatology Department at Cairo University in Cairo, Egypt.

A 77-year-old female patient presented with bilateral tender, swollen, erythematous, focally crusted cheeks with a discharge of pus and necrotic material, which had developed one month after autologous fat transfer and a corrective injection procedure conducted to correct an overdone fat transfer. Histopathological examination of the discharged material using routine hematoxylin and eosin staining revealed degenerated collagen admixed with three different filler materials. Scattered all throughout the specimen were numerous thick-walled, basophilic, nonbudding spherical bodies of variable sizes. Read More
