Fillers, neurotoxin injections and lasers have low complication rates, researchers say

WebMD News from HealthDay
By Robert Preidt

WEDNESDAY, Nov. 5, 2014 (HealthDay News) — Minimally invasive cosmetic procedures are nearly risk-free, a new study says.

Researchers examined the results of more than 20,000 of these procedures — such as fillers, neurotoxins and the use of laser and energy devices — performed by 23 dermatologists at eight centers across the United States.

Minor complications, such as bruising, swelling, redness, bumpiness or skin darkening, occurred in less than 1 percent of patients. There were no major complications.

Complication rates for fillers were 0.52 percent, the study found.

The complication rate for fillers was slightly higher than for energy devices and neurotoxins. This is because fillers are slightly more invasive, according to the researchers.

The findings were published Nov. 5 in the journal JAMA Dermatology.

“The message for patients is that if you are thinking of getting one of these procedures, you are not indulging in something drastic or high-risk,” study leader Dr. Murad Alam, a professor of dermatology at Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine and a physician at Northwestern Memorial Hospital, said in a university news release.

“The take home is these procedures are very safe and can be mixed and matched to give the individual a significant cosmetic benefit, rather than getting one big cosmetic procedure that might be risky,” Alam added.





SkinSmart Dermatology Founder
Dr. Elizabeth Callahan
Participates in Aesthetics Summit in Paris

SARASOTA, FL – Dr. Elizabeth Callahan, founder and medical director of SkinSmart Dermatology, recently attended the Global Merz Aesthetics Expert Summit (MAEXS), in Paris, November 16-17, 2013 to discuss the globalization of beauty in facial aesthetics.

“Having the opportunity to attend industry summits such as MAEXS allows me to bring cutting edge ideas and approaches back to my practice,” Dr. Callahan said.

As a focal topic, the agenda concentrated on the global approach to beautification. Experts from around the world discussed subjects such as: Is there is a universal standard of beauty? Which indications appear most frequently in different parts of the world? And, what can we learn from worldwide colleagues? This global view helped to stimulate open and inspirational dialogues between international experts.

Exciting keynote lectures and live injection courses covered all angles and aspects of aesthetic medicine. Committed to excellence and innovation, the program was specifically designed to enhance premium injection techniques and stimulate peer-to-peer exchange on controversial aesthetic topics.

“Aesthetics, skin fitness and facial rejuvenation are my passions, and I have always embraced the newest innovations and technology available,” said Dr. Callahan. “In addition to learning what others in the industry are thinking about and are adopting in their practices, I solidified my belief that SkinSmart offers the best services available in the U.S.”
