Treatment of Hyaluronic Acid Filler-Induced Impending Necrosis With Hyaluronidase: Consensus Recommendations.
Recommendations on the use of hyaluronidase when vascular compromise is suspected are provided and patients who are diagnosed promptly and treated within 24 hours will usually have the best outcomes.
Etiology, prevention, and treatment of dermal filler complications.
To describe and review the complications associated with the currently-available dermal filling agents, the authors conducted a literature review in peer-reviewed journals and present the reported complication rates.
Penile paraffinoma: self-injection with mineral oil.
A 64-year-old patient with a 9-cm firm, irregular penile mass associated with phimosis, erectile dysfunction, and voiding difficulty is presented, and surgical excision is performed to prevent recurrence.
Evidence and considerations in the application of chemical peels in skin disorders and aesthetic resurfacing.
Peels can be combined with other in-office facial resurfacing techniques to optimize outcomes and enhance patient satisfaction and allow clinicians to tailor the treatment to individual patient needs.
Adverse effects when injecting facial fillers.
Understanding the anatomy, limitations of the filler and proper technique can reduce the risk of adverse effects and when a complication occurs, the practitioner should understand how to manage them from observation to surgical intervention.
Delayed presentation of impending necrosis following soft tissue augmentation with hyaluronic acid and successful management with hyaluronidase.
A case of what appears to be slow swelling after injection of Juvederm (Allergan, Irvine, CA), which yielded delayed compression and vascular occlusion resulting in cutaneous necrosis resulting in Cutaneous Necrosis is presented.
Recommendations and current practices for the reconstitution and storage of botulinum toxin type A.
After reconstitution, the data suggest that BT-A can be stored beyond the recommended time period of 4 hours and can be safely administered to multiple patients, assuming standard safe injection techniques are followed.
