Overview

Dermal fillers are the fastest growing tools in the cosmetic physician's armamentarium for refreshing the appearance of patients. This book demonstrates effective, best-practice use for superb patient results. Augmented by a DVD of procedural videos, it shows you how to match patient, treatment, and filler for maximum results.

Taking a patient-centered approach, Dr. Jones reviews the advantages and disadvantages of each filler according to anatomical application. Opening chapters cover the cosmetic patient consultation and guidelines for local anaesthesia in the use of injectable fillers, followed by individual chapters on:

Hyaluronic Acids

Calcium Hydroxylapatite Microspheres

Evolence and Evolence Breeze

Sculptra

Liquid Injectable Silicone

Hydrogel Polymers

Artefill

An extensive chapter on complications from soft-tissue augmentation of the face explains how to avoid and manage peri-procedural issues. Closing chapters supply a cheek enhancement guide for the aesthetic injector and a review of the clinical applications of hyaluronic acids, which are currently the most commonly used fillers.

With careful coverage of basic science, safety and efficacy data that have led to FDA approval, safe and effective injection techniques, and appropriate indications for each filler, this concise volume provides a dependable source of important information for dermatologists, aesthetic medicine practitioners, plastic surgeons, and all practitioners who work with injectable fillers.
