The first book of the Master Collection addresses indications and techniques of botulinum toxin injections.
This new book fallaws on with our work on facial rejuvenation by addressing fillers and volumizing injections.
The topic is of great importance if one considers that the fight against aging is not a case of futility or fashion but is at the root of how we wish to see ourselves and how we would like to be seen by others.
The work we're showing here is considerable, in so far as facial rejuvenation techniques have made considerable progress aver the last decade.
The wide range of means available to us now allows us to make a variety of choices in our therapeutic decisions.
However, none of us wants to cross that fragile boarder which separates a natural, balanced and beautiful rejuvenation and a radical transformation of facial balance.
Medicine and aesthetic surgery are two evolving yet complementary disciplines; they are certainly not in competition.
Thus, the indications of both must be respected by each, and with the greatest rigor.
The golden path to achieving excelient results is based on the proper linking of our available methods, and on the cooperation between different practitioners.
Getting its start a mere 20 years ago, wrinkle filling went from localized volumizing treatments to whole face injections.
The path has been long and sometimes difficult, but always very instructive!
The products used are numerous.
Some have been marginalized by their short duration, while others were the source of sometimes very serious accidents.
But finally, a molecule has broken from the pack which gets dear and broad consensus: hyaluronic acid ...
The authors of this book have made the choice to go back to the basics of anatomical work.
By performinq many dissections plane by plane, we are able to recognize areas of safety and dangers to avoid.
This approach seemed necessary to better understand the relationships of the different anatomical planes where we should place filling and volumizing products. Detailed analysis of the different fat pockets and compartments which play an important role in changing the volumes in the aging face represents a crucial element of this study.
Our work was completed by the dissection of muscles and septal fibers, as weil as the identification of their relation- ship with the fatty planes.
These elements take a particular importance in the treat- ment of the suborbital region and the mandibular line.
Understanding facial aging cannotjust be limited to the consequences of the gravitational shifting of different planes, the prevailing notion in the classical theories. Facial aging phenomena are clearly much more complex. It is even now acknowledged that fat compartments of the face are controlled in their movements from top to bottom by the different septa I fibers and other true or false ligaments which hold them.
But it is also likely that these fat pockets evolve, esorbing
themselves or increasing in volume.
In the same spirit, what is classically interpreted as tissue distension at the level of the face and neck muscles could, in some cases, actually be a contracture.
The understanding of the specific mechanisms of facial
aging takes us to a world rich in surprises.
And practitioners from all walks of life have not finished
surprising us with their imagination and enthusiasm.
