Complications of Fillers in the Perioral Area: Prevention and Management

The talk focuses on safety tips for injecting the lips and perioral areas with dermal fillers. Complications can arise from patient, product, and injector-related issues. Patient selection and education are important, and aseptic and clean techniques should be followed. Reversible fillers should be used, and thin needles and small syringes are recommended. Ultrasound guidance can help prevent complications by allowing for vascular mapping, locating filler, and measuring the depth at which vessels are located. It can also aid in assessing fillers and excluding soft tissue neoplasms. Ultrasound can provide real-time guidance in case of complications such as nodules or granulomas.

Overview and Functions of Skin Whitening Agents:

Skin whitening agents have the ability to reduce melanin deposition in the epidermis. They act on melanocytes to regulate melanin production, transportation to keratinocytes, and turnover control of melanin-containing keratinocytes. Even when controlling melanin production, both melanocytes and keratinocytes play a crucial role. In this lecture, we will explain the mechanisms of action for each of these functions and categorize skin whitening agents accordingly.

How To Deal With Facial Scars In Darker Skin With Fractional CO2 Laser?

Scarring is a common occurrence, with 95% of acne cases resulting in some level of scarring. Scars can be differentiated by their classification as atrophic, hypertrophic, or flat, and by the Vancouver scar scale, which measures vascularity, pigmentation, pliability, and height. There are several types of scars, including ice pick scars, boxcar scars, rolling scars, hypertrophic scars, papular scars, and bridging scars. The treatment of scars can involve the use of power devices, lasers, and fractional CO2, as well as subcision, punch excision, punch elevation, punch replacement, and fillers. The main goal is to prevent or minimize scarring, and techniques include anticipation and prevention, controlling excess vascularity, and taking out scar tissue.
