BACKGROUND Laxity and rhytides are manifestations of photodamage on the chest. OBJECTIVE We sought to evaluate efficacy and safety of microfocused ultrasound with visualization treatment of décolletage laxity and rhytides. METHODS In all, 24 subjects with moderate to severe rhytides, as measured by a validated 5-point photonumeric scale (Fabi/Bolton(More)
BACKGROUND Poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA) is an effective treatment for panfacial volumization. Typically, patients who are candidates for volume restoration can benefit from lasers and light sources for photorejuvenation. OBJECTIVE To evaluate the safety and efficacy of combining PLLA with intense pulsed light (IPL) in facial photorejuvenation. MATERIALS(More)
BACKGROUND Although ablative laser technology and surgical treatment are considered to be the criterion standard for the rejuvenation of aging skin, the demand for procedures with less down time and risk, such as nonablative laser and radiofrequency (RF) treatments, has increased over the last several decades. OBJECTIVES To investigate the efficacy and(More)
BACKGROUND Hypopigmented scarring is a challenging condition to treat, with current treatments showing limited efficacy and temporary results. Nonablative fractional resurfacing has been demonstrated to be an effective and safe modality in the treatment of hypopigmented scars. OBJECTIVES To demonstrate the efficacy and safety of combining fractional(More)
BACKGROUND Sixty-three subjects' legs were randomized to receive treatment with polidocanol (POL) or hypertonic saline (HS) for telangiectasias and reticular leg veins. OBJECTIVE To compare the safety and efficacy of two sclerosing agents in three dermatologic surgery practices. METHODS After exclusion of saphenofemoral junction incompetence, each(More)
BACKGROUND Lateral canthal rhytides partly result from repetitive muscular actions of the orbicularis oculi. OBJECTIVE To determine the efficacy of one versus three injection sites of AbobotulinumtoxinA (ABO) in the treatment of lateral canthal rhytides. METHODS This was a two-center, evaluator-masked, 120 day study in which 40 patients with moderate to(More)
BACKGROUND The aged hand is characterized by cutaneous and dermal atrophy, with deep intermetacarpal spaces, prominent bones and tendons, and bulging reticular veins. Epidermal changes include solar lentigines, seborrheic keratoses, actinic keratoses, skin laxity, rhytides, tactile roughness, and telangiectasia. STUDY DESIGN A Medline search was performed(More)
The shape and fullness of the lips have a significant role in facial aesthetics and outward appearance. The corrective needs of a patient can range from a subtle enhancement to a complete recontouring including correction of perioral rhytides. A comprehensive understanding of the lower face anatomical features and injection site techniques are foundational(More)
Botulinum toxin A was Food and Drug Administration approved in 2002 for the temporary correction of glabellar frown lines. Since that time, a variety of neuromodulators have established a convincing profile for both safety and efficacy in the treatment hyperdynamic rhytides of the upper face. With increasing clinical experience and expertise, these(More)
