Plastic surgeons have a range of effective products and minimally invasive techniques for patients seeking to reverse the signs of facial aging. A review and update on facial rejuvenation using botulinum toxin “neuromodulators” is presented in the October issue of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, the official medical journal of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS).
The article and accompanying online video outlines a “stepwise approach for facial rejuvenation” using currently approved neuromodulators. The authors are Reza Kordestani, MD, Kevin Small, MD, and Rod J. Rohrich, MD, of University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center, Dallas. Dr. Rohrich, Editor-in-Chief of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, comments: “With comprehensive facial analysis and careful injection technique, FDA-approved neuromodulators such as Botox , Dysport, and Xeomin enable plastic surgeons to restore a more youthful facial appearance, in a safe and efficient office procedure.”
