non-surgical cosmetic procedures look a little revival, given the economy and higher costs of enhancements such as folding the stomach and breast. Chief among these procedures more cost effective is Botox injections, dermal fillers, laser resurfacing, laser hair removal, chemical and leather. Dermal fillers, such as Resytlane, was approved by the FDA in 2003 to correct moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds, and now under consideration as a fat lip as well.
Restylane, a clear gel formulation of hyaluronic acid, through an FDA advisory committee yesterday on the way to full approval. Although currently using enhancer-lips-off label is considered as a goal-FDA approval means that testing and research on the products meet applicable standards for this procedure, and ultimately safer for the individual. It also allows companies to market their products for that purpose.
According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, Restylane and other dermal fillers, are used in more than one million customers in 2010, placing them in the top five non-surgical cosmetic procedures.
Earlier this week, HealthNews publish research results found in Restylane and Botox users had difficulty identifying the emotions of others. Apparently, we can read the feelings of others by imitating their facial expressions. Because the users of both Botox and Restylane can not utilize all the muscles of their faces, they have difficulties decoding emotions in accordance with expression. A definite downside to this treatment.
More worrying, this is detrimental to the report received by the Food and Drug Administration serious and unexpected problems in people treated with dermal fillers. (Dermal fillers and manufacturers including: Restylane is made by the Medici, Juvederm, a product of Allergan, and Radiesse from Bio Medical Form.) A total of 930 reports of health problems has been received over the last six years. Reported side effects include facial palsy and vandalism and rare but life-threatening problems such as severe allergic reactions and anaphylactic shock. Reports of minor swelling also occurs, but it is the expected reaction by injection.
