Maria needs more info…. I am trying to find people who would be interested to meet and discuss opinions about current patient education tools (brochures, websites) and ways to make them more useful and informative for people who are trying to decide which injectable facial rejuvenation product to get.
I have researched many forums (boards and blogs) and found that there is a lot of discussion on these types of products; however, there are many areas that require more explanation and education, such as product attributes, time to notice change and length of benefit (product effectiveness), side effects, locating trained doctors for proper administration, and after-care. Let me know if you are interested, and let’s talk.
The Right Brain responds:
Even though Maria’’s question is from an old forum post its still relevant today given that facial filler technology continues to evolve. For example, there’s a new technology that plumps and fills in wrinkles by injecting your own blood in sort of weird reverse-vampire kind of way.
This process, called the Selphyl System, doesn’t use traditional filling materials like plastics or animal-derived products. Instead it starts by drawing your own blood and then centrifuging it to separate the platelets and fibrin. The purified, collected material is then injected into the areas where you want rejunvenation. Interestingly (disgustingly some people might say) it is not actually the injected material that is responsible for the wrinkle filling effect- it’s the production of extra collagen that is triggered by the injection that plumps up the underlying skin.
