Mark N. Scheinberg

The Center For Cosmetic & Reconstructive Gynecology, USA

Title: Deceptive versus non-deceptive cosmetic-plastic gynecologic surgical interventions

Time : 08:30-08:50

Speaker
Biography:

Mark N. Scheinberg is a highly trained vaginal surgeon having performed over 10,000 surgical procedures. He also has extensive training in cosmetic gynecology and has created the widely popular Mark V Mini-Labiaplasty procedure. He has received advanced training in vaginal reconstruction and transformation by the internationally famous Professor Adam Ostrzenski M.D., Ph.D. He is also a member of the International Society of Cosmetic- Gynecologists (ISCG), and the American Academy of Cosmetic Surgery (AACS).

Abstract:

The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG), in their Committee Opinion 378, reviewed “vaginal rejuvenation”, “designer vaginoplasty”, “revirgination” and G-spot amplifi cation procedures and concluded that: safety and eff ectiveness have not been documented; traditional gynecologic surgery techniques have been adapted and terms have been changed to new nomenclatures as cosmetic procedures; deceptive practice and marketing were identifi ed; and unethical practice, marketing, national franchising, and business controlling the dissemination of scientifi c knowledge were recognized. Review of existing scientifi c and marketing literature from that time identifi ed no randomized clinical studies. Th erefore, ACOG Opinion 378 was correct on this issue. Traditional gynecologic procedures had been renamed for cosmetic gynecologic new terms and it constituted deceptive practice and marketing, misleading physicians and patients. Th e ACOG also documented what needed to be done to practice honest and ethical cosmetic-plastic gynecology. Over the past several years the cosmetic-plastic gynecology fi eld has elevated its level in the evidence-based medicine ranks through welldesigned clinical studies published in peer-reviewed journals. Th ese published new cosmetic-plastic gynecology procedures have not been adopted from either traditional or pelvic reconstructive surgeries.

Christopher J Salgado

University of Miami Miller School of Medicine, USA

Title: Cosmetic vaginoplasty and beyond

Time : 08:50-09:10

Speaker
Biography:

Christopher J. Salgado received his medical degree from Georgetown University School of Medicine in 1995 where he remained for his general surgery training. His plastic surgery training was completed at the University of Rochester in New York and he then served as a Major in the U.S. Army for four years fulfi lling his commitment as a plastic surgeon in 2004. Following a microvascular reconstruction fellowship in Taiwan, his clinical and research interests are in postoncologic (cancer) reconstruction, genital and perineal functional and aesthetic surgery, aesthetic body contouring, limb salvage, lymphedema and complex trauma reconstruction. He has authored over 60 peer-reviewed articles, written multiple book chapters and serves on various editorial boards of leading journals.

Abstract:

Aesthetic genital surgery has become a fashionable issue nowadays. Many procedures and techniques have been described these last years, but very few long-term results or follow up studies are available. Th e novelty of this aspect of plastic surgery and the lack of evidence based interventions, have led to a comparison with female genital mutilation. In this presentation, we provide an overview of previous and innovative surgical procedures for aesthetic improvement of the female genitalia. In addition, we also provide basic surgical principles using fl aps and skin graft s to reconstruct the vulvovaginal region aft er varied etiologies including cancer, infection, trauma and autoimmune causes.

Speaker
Biography:

Otto J. Placik received his medical degree, (graduating from the Honors Program in Medical Education) from Northwestern University where he also completed residencies in general and plastic and reconstructive surgery. He completed a fellowship in the aesthetic reconstruction of complex nasal and facial deformities at St. Joseph Hospital in Chicago and an additional fellowship in micro vascular surgery and tissue transplantation at Davies Medical Center, an affi liate of the University of California, San Francisco. He is board certifi ed as a diplomat by the American Board of Plastic Surgery, and is an active member of The American Society of Plastic Surgeons. He has been repeatedly recognized as a “Top Doctors” by Consumers’ Checkbook Magazine as well as one of “America’s Top Surgeons” and “America’s Top Plastic Surgeons” by Consumers Research Council of America. He has performed thousands of breast enlargements in addition to body contouring and facial enhancement procedures with a special interest in female genital plastic surgery. As an assistant Professor of Plastic Surgery at Northwestern University, he has published over 10 articles in peer reviewed journals and has presented before international audiences. He is a recognized investigator and actively participates in research and development of emerging cosmetic innovations including FDA clinical trials and multicenter studies evaluating Aesthetic Vulvo Vaginal Surgery and has been granted three medical device patents with several additional patents pending

Abstract:

I s this the last frontier of aesthetic plastic surgery? This past decade has seen a marked rise in the desire and performance of cosmetic procedures on the female genitalia. This emerging area of interest has drawn marked criticism and controversy from both inside and outside the medical field. While the terms, standards, and procedures have yet to be established, the demands cannot be ignored. The increased incidence is a testament to the sustainability of this field suggesting that this is more than just a fad and likely here to stay. As an active researcher and contributor to the field working side by side with gynecologists, Dr. Placik discusses the evolution of this special area of practice from the unique perspective of a plastic surgeon. The elective nature of the requests and the aesthetic goals are aspects that are commonly associated with plastic surgery procedures but with novel functional considerations that are often considered taboo. The benefits of a multidisciplinary team approach are supported. Dr. Placik’s history and experience and lessons learned and insights gained with over 500 surgical procedures are reviewed with a discussion of: Media frenzy, patterns of growth, patient complaints and requests, patient surveys, demographics, procedure distribution and frequency.

Anne Marie McNeill

Abstract:

This talk will review common rashes and skin complaints in the vulvar area. Rashes covered will include lichen sclerosus, lichen planus, atopic dermatitis, and psoriasis. Lesions such as vulvar intrapithelial neoplasia & squamous cell carcinoma, and vulvar pain syndromes will also be reviewed.

Biography:

Ardeshir Vahidi is an associate specialist and consultant in Plastic Surgery at K.G.H / UK. His area of interest is Performing cosmetic and reconstructive surgery. Elective list of facial lifting, mastopexy, mammaplasty, breast augmentation, abdominoplasty, Rhynoplasty... etc. Extensive work and experience in experimental microsurgery.

Abstract:

Eyes and lips are two principal elements which play a very important role in expression of women sensualities. The arc of Cupid, the magnetic eyes of Cleopatra in the universal literature, and actually Angelina Jolie’s, or Scarlet Johansson’s lips are making subject of beauty and attraction, we call them “informational lines of intense sexual signals”. Knowing about double-reversed curve of Hogarth, french curves, which are usually based on logarithmic or exponential basis, we are determined to take in consideration in the same sense any other kind of artistic lines which are important in the psychology of art, regarding the expression of face in Aesthetic Surgery, see Michelangelo’s collection of studies of perfection. Beginning with idea of “informational lines and forms with intense sexual signals” we are paying a lot of attention to details regarding the lines, contours and forms. One of the most requested, noninvasive, surgical maneuvers in the facial aesthetics is lip contour and volume augmentation. 70 to 80 per cent of women above 40 years old, need frontal and peri-orbicular wrinkle enhancement and correction. More than 50% of this category need lip contour and volume augmentation. As we know there are various cosmetic products which are used in this filed, permanent and temporary injectable implants, animal protein (Collagen) or synthetic products purely biocompatible. Every one of them represents advantages and disadvantages regarding injection technique or re-absorption time. As much as it is discussed and demonstrated, in surgical experience among so many products the safest one is going to be in the head-list, Hyaluronic Acid, synthetic, fully biocompatible, but also with very short re-absorption time. One of the personal experiences of our team is using “Hydroxil Apatite of Calcium” as injectable implant for contouring and beautifying lip augmentation. Unfortunately it is mostly recommended not to use Hydroxil Apatite of Calcium “Radiesse” in lip augmentation because of some undesired results in spite of its reasonable long term re-absorption and its excellent results in wrinkle correction, comparing Hyaluronic Acid where the rate of failure is mostly impossible if the surgeon is well trained. Our personal technique, studied on more than 50 cases, brings enough arguments for advantages in using of HAC in lip augmentation, without any major complication (some time echimossis) avoiding risk factors in lip enhancement and making Hydroxil Apetite of Calcium a desirable injectable implant with long life term. Conclusion: Because of its solid crystals in composition (CaHA spheres are between 25-45 nicrons)“Radiesse” is one of the most long life term, temporary injectable implant. CaHA is eliminated by Phogocistosys , it is non-toxic, non-antigenic, noncarcinogenic and non-allergic. Using our proposal technique of fine needle (30G), deep and lent injection, we can obtain desirable lip contouring and augmentation.

Session Introduction

Frederick A. Coville

Cornerstone Plastic Surgery & Aesthetic Medicine, USA

Title: Skin: The fifth dimension and sixth sense of beauty

Time : 11:05-11:25

Speaker
Biography:

Frederick A. Coville, a New Jersey plastic surgeon based in the city of Linwood, is an internationally recognized plastic and reconstructive surgeon. His experience in combining skin rejuvenation with sophisticated surgical and non-surgical techniques has earned him the respect of plastic surgeons and dermatologic colleagues internationally. He has an exceptional perspective in maximizing beauty. For these reasons, Dr. Coville, a native New Yorker, has become a widely sought-after speaker around the world.

Abstract:

Background: Plastic Surgery as a discipline represents the quintessential confl uence of artistry and science. By virtue of the fact that our results are dynamic and are altered by time, aesthetic surgery is unlike its static counterparts such as sculpture or painting. As an art form, it stands all but alone as true “Living Art”. As a science, plastic surgery is on a perpetual quest to quantify, identify, and defi ne beauty in an analytical manner. By doing so, we hope to create methods that deliver reproducible results. Th e problems we ask ourselves to solve are, “What is Beauty?” and “How do we create it?” Th e inconvenient truth of these questions is that we are forever striving to describe a wholly right brain concept–Beauty–through left brain gymnastics. Although this can bring us very close to the answers we seek; we can never get there without an appreciation of the emotional and limbic nature of beauty. Discussion and Conclusion: Th is presentation seeks to explore the oft en overlooked intangibles of beauty that are most evident in skin. Th e author asserts that youthful, healthy skin is the single most important aspect of beauty and yet the most oft en neglected or under-addressed in our aesthetic manipulations. As surgeons and physicians, our handling of skin can be precise and targeted, but equally myopic. For example, the absence of wrinkles does not always create youthful-appearing skin and simple tightening unaccompanied by skin improvement never creates beauty. Th is “Sixth Sense” of beauty has been understood and appreciated by us on an almost subconscious level for as long as we have existed; and has played a huge role in how we have evolved. Th e author will take a journey through time, history, art, and evolution in order to establish a platform from which we can begin to refi ne our eff orts of skin manipulation and surgical technique to chase this elusive Gestalt of Beauty.

Biography:

Sergey Prokudin is a Plastic, Aesthetic & Reconstructive Surgeon in private practice. He was educated and trained in Russia, France, Italy and Germany. He is the chairman of the Southern Society of Plastic Reconstructive Aestetic Surgeons and Cosmetologists (SSPRASC), a member of the Board of the Russian Society of Plastic Reconstructive Surgeons (SPRAS), member of the ASSECE, honorary member of the SIDE, and a member of the Editorial Board of the journal "Aesthetic medicine". He is working together with French and Italian anatomists on an "Atlas of Anatomy of the face and Neck for cosmetologists and plastic surgeons". He is the organizer of the annual SSPRASC congresses, workshops, a lecturer at national and international conferences and other academic activities

Abstract:

Introduction: Even insignificant visual manifestations of posttraumatic face deformities and face paralysis look so unaesthetic that they cause quite obvious discomfort to patients. Some patients with such deformities have already undergone surgical interventions and some other treatments, and these methods have come to the end of their tether; and other patients just cannot be operated by classical methods. Objective: To develop minimally invasive surgical methods of management of posttraumatic and paralytic residual face deformities, to analyze and to apply these methods in clinical practice in order to add one more supplementary stage in the process of such patients’ rehabilitation. Materials & Methods: Here is represented a long-term experience (since 1996) of patients’ treatment who have aesthetic face deformities of traumatic, burn, neurological, and iatrogenic etiology of static and/or dynamic nature, and who underwent correction of visual aesthetic manifestations of the diseases in different face zones by threat lifting methods. Correction was performed at: one-sided brow ptosis, inferior eyelid edge, cheek soft tissues, angles of mouth and other parts of the face. Various methods of thread lift will be described: smooth threads or threads with multipunctate fixation, absorbable and non-absorbable, with the linear or round direction, with dense structures fixation or without it. Schemes of interventions and short video films will be presented. Results: Various results are shown by longevity (basically satisfactory and good) as well as cases with fast relapse. Recommendations are given for application of different lifting methods depending on indications. Conclusions: Thread correction technique is a new trend of plastic surgery, which allows correcting effectively aesthetic deformities of face soft tissues. This surgical trend can be considered as the “last” instance in the surgical treatment of patients with face paralysis and other deformities of face soft tissues

Maria Clara Santos

Title: Exoderm, the safest and fastest deep peel

Time : 11:45-12:05

Speaker
Biography:

Maria Clara Santos is a physician and Professor. She was educated and trained in Brazil, where she currently resides in Sao Paulo. Her initial training was in general medicine and surgery. After that, she continued her education and got a postgraduate degree in dermatology. For many years, she has been devoted to non-surgical treatments for hair, skin, and fat reduction. Her high-level of devotion, scientifi c interest, and intellectual curiosity has fueled her interest in treating more challenging skin conditions; such as non-surgical full-face rejuvenation, stretch marks, and nonsurgical hair restoration. She also has special interest in non-surgical treatment for body contouring. She loves conducting cases and teaching doctors to do the same. She has presented lectures and workshops all over the world for more than 20 years and has received numerous national & international awards and is distinguished as an international master professor.

Abstract:

The signs of aging appear initially at the sun-exposed areas, mostly on the face. Th ey are expressed in form of wrinkles, pigmented spots and pre-cancerous lesions. In addition, skin laxity contributes to the old looking appearance, causing aesthetical and psychological non-satisfaction. Exoderm lift is a special deep phenol buff ered peel that solves in eight days all the facts related to the aging face. It was created by Dr. Yoram Fintsi, (1951–2001). Aft er Dr. Fintsi has passed away, Dr. Clara Santos continues Exoderm lift training around the world. Th e liquefaction of the skin, followed by the stimulation of the new collagen and elastic fi bers, creates the “internal lift ” which gives to the patients a much younger appearance and accordingly an improved self-confi dence. Giving equivalent or better results than the previous anti-aging methods like face-lift and laser resurface. Exoderm lift is performed under local sedation and in ambulatory basis, is considered the safest and fastest deep peel technique in the world.

Abstract:

Chemical peels have been in the market for a while now as a popular, relatively inexpensive, and generally safe method of treatment to refresh and rejuvenate skin with the goal of stimulating new skin growth and improving surface texture and appearance. Th is talk focuses on one of the most advanced peels in the market, with a new nanotechnology which is called a Stem Cell Peel which is derived from the Malus Domestica (Green Apple) stem cells. Stem Cell Peel is a biphasic peel i.e., it consists of two phases, a liquid phase and a solid phase. All peels available in the market just remove layers of the epidermis, leaving it to heal by its self. Th e Stem Cell however; being a biphasic peel acts by: Liquid phase: When applied to the skin, it lyses the upper layers of the epidermis with the help of epidermal lysing factors. Th e second phase of the Stem Cell Peel is the solid phase: where in a cream that contains growth factors that are derived from the Malus Domestica (Green Apple) stem cells is applied. Th e solid phase apart from helping to neutralize the solution from the liquid phase, also promotes growth of new epidermal cells. Th e new epidermal cells are rich in epidermal growth factors (EGFs) which stimulate endothelial chemotaxis and promote angiogenesis, vascular endothelial growth factors (VEGFs) which enhance angiogenesis, transforming growth factor beta (TGF- B) which stimulate matrix synthesis. Stem Cell Peels contain kojic acid 1%, lactic acid 25%, mandelic acid 3%, gylocic acid 0.37% and citric acid 7.29% acting both as a superfi cial as well as medium-depth peel penetrating up to the epidermo-dermal junction. Repeated Stem Cell Peels cause slight thickening in the dermis thus leading to the reduction in fi ne lines and fi ne wrinkles. Since the peel rejuvenates the dermis and stimulates collagen synthesis, it is an eff ective anti aging peel. It can also be used on Scars. Especially atrophic and pigmented scars have been seen to respond well with this peel. In-vivo and in-vitro tests carried out by Biotex showed that Stem Cell Peel can treat atrophic scars. Sixteen volunteers with atrophic scars all over the body were chosen and were treated with Stem Cell Peel. Th ey all showed a marked improvement with two or three consecutive peels fi ft een days apart. For one to get an optimum eff ect, 6-7 peels are recommended, 15-20 days apart. Stem Cell Peel is relatively inexpensive and generally safe method for treatment of vast skin disorders and to refresh and rejuvenate skin eff ectively with great results.

Biography:

Sarah Gilpin received her Ph.D. from the University of Minnesota. Her area of study was the penetration of natural fragrance ingredients and potential skin allergy effects. She is a research toxicologist at Kao USA, a successful global personal care company. She has published several papers in reputed journals, serves on the editorial review board for journals in ocular and skin science, and has also co-published several chapters on various topics related to skin biology and toxicology.

Abstract:

Personal care and cosmetic product safety is currently of great interest to many consumers, regulators, non-governmental organizations and dermatologists. Cosmetic safety has come under increased scrutiny of late due to the increased perception that they are unregulated and unsafe. Th is talk will aim to inform interested clinicians about the safety testing platforms employed by reputable companies in the United States, and globally. I will discuss some of the traditional toxicology related to the review of ingredients and then testing on fi nished products. I will also discuss new alternative methods, such as in silico and computational computing assessments, TTC, and in vitro cell culturing, that are becoming used more frequently due to the global regulatory restrictions on some types of testing, and as science advances to better screen and evaluate ingredients and products. Brief mention will also be made on the post-market surveillance process and its utility. Th is talk should help dermatologists to learn more about how personal care companies assess and ensure consumer safety and enjoyment of product use.

Rachel E B Watson

University of Manchester, UK

Title: The Manchester Patch Test: Assessing product efficacy in vivo

Time : 14:10-14:30

Speaker
Biography:

Rachel E. B. Watson’s research focuses on understanding human skin ageing, which can be divided broadly into two categories: intrinsic (that which occurs with time) and extrinsic (that which is the result of an individual’s interactions with their environment). The major environmental factor which impacts upon skin is long-term sun exposure (ultraviolet radiation, UVR), although other stimuli also exert effects (sun-bed use, smoking, atmospheric pollutants, etc.). In addition to examining the mechanisms underlying skin ageing, Rachel also has an interest in understanding remodelling and repair of human skin once damage has occurred. This includes understanding how retinoids interact with the skin to promote repair, dietary protection against UVR-mediated damage and performing 'proof of principle' in vivo clinical studies on emerging therapies.

Abstract:

Photoageing describes the appearance of skin which, as well as being subject to chronological ageing, is also chronically photoexposed. Clinically photoaged skin is characterised by the occurrence of coarse and fi ne wrinkles, dyspigmentation, a sallow complexion and formation of benign and malignant neoplasms. Th e mechanisms of wrinkle formation are not fully understood but it is now widely accepted that remodelling of the fi brillin-rich microfi brillar network – part of the elastic fi bre system of skin – is an important feature relating to its clinical appearance. Topical application of all-trans retinoic acid (tRA) improves the clinical signs of photoageing; hence, tRA is regarded as the “gold standard” against which commercially available “anti-ageing” products are judged. Our previous work has demonstrated that topical application of tRA under occlusion for four days produces signifi cant deposition of fi brillin-rich microfi brils in the papillary dermis of photoaged skin, predictive of those seen aft er several weeks of non-occluded topical application; thus, this assay provides a rapid and convenient method of assessing the effi cacy of putative repair agents. We will discuss how we have used the assay to build confi dence in products prior to launch. Th e Manchester patch test has identifi ed a number of over-the-counter cosmetic products with the ability to cause deposition of fi brillin-rich microfi brils in photoaged dermal tissue and hence provide evidence for its partial repair.

Abstract:

Since ancient time, Dead Sea (DS) aroused surprising degree of interest as a result of its exclusive location 427 meter below sea level, chemical composition and atmospheric properties. Th e DS area is unique for its natural therapeutic resources including exceptional composition of sun rays due to low altitude as well as unusual blend of minerals in DS water and DS Mud. Th e healing properties of DS minerals on skin have been well established by various researches. However, the benefi cial mode of action of DS minerals on skin is not fully understood. Osmoter™, a commercial and patented preparation of concentrated extracted DS water IP registered by "AHAVA-Dead Sea Laboratories" (AHAVA), exhibits various effi cacies on skin and is implemented in all AHAVA skincare products. Collaborating with leading universities and research centers, AHAVA has recently analyzed how human skin is aff ected by topical applied Osmoter™ in order to optimize its action, using innovative delivery strategies. Th ese studies revealed novel properties of Osmoter™ signifi cantly contributing to skin health and well being phenotype in diff erent modes of action related to biomarkers participating in skin barrier function, infl ammation, redox status, aging process and photo-damage response. Th e innovation regarding Osmoter™ and its eff ect on the diff erent biomarkers in skin, which can pave the way for better therapeutic effi cacy of both healthy and malfunctioning skin, will be discussed in the lecture-either by Osmoter™ itself, or either by its implementation in diff erent topical preparations and in diff erent concentrations.

Leroy Rebello

BIOTEX, India

Title: Advances in PRP and prp lysate (2x)

Time : 14:50-15:10

Speaker
Biography:

Leroy Rebello is one of the founding directors of Eternesse Anti Aging Clinic and BIOTEX. He has done his diploma in Dermatology from St. Johns Hospital Australia and his Ph.D. with a special interest in ocular pathology and lasers. He has lectured in reputed institutions such as AIIMS, JIPMER and other medical colleges around the country, and has over 10 research papers published in indexed journals. He has participated in various clinical trials in the capacity of an investigator including stem cell therapy, fresh cell therapy and platelet rich plasma. He is the fi rst doctor to introduce HPLPRP- 2X in India. He is a pioneer in PRP and the use of advanced cell therapy. He specializes in facial and body rejuvenation, hair treatments and sports injuries.

Abstract:

Platelet Rich Plasma, or PRP, is blood plasma with concentrated platelets and other growth factors. Th e concentrated platelets found in PRP contain huge reservoirs of bioactive proteins, including growth factors and signaling proteins that are vital to initiate and accelerate tissue repair and regeneration. Th ese bioactive proteins initiate connective tissue healing in tissues such as meniscus (knee) and rotator cuff tissue, bone and articular cartilage regeneration and repair, promote development of new blood vessels, and stimulate the wound healing process. Platelet rich plasma therapy is a treatment option for various orthopaedic injuries and conditions, which have traditionally required surgery or other extensive treatments. PRP with HPL is a technology that uses ingredients from your own blood to regenerate your skin and to rejuvenate collagen, resulting in vibrant, fresh younger looking skin. Th ese ingredients reside within the fraction of blood named "Platelet rich plasma" (PRP). HPL is enriched with platelets, stem cells and growth factors. Once injected into your skin, these substances will accelerate the normal healing process via new collagen formation at the injected area. Because plasma (autologous) is used, there is no danger of disease transmission, anaphylaxis or neoplasia. PRP with HPL injections is 'bioactive' stimulator and not a fi ller and it will increase collagen providing a gradual increase in skin thickness. Visible results appear aft er the fi rst treatment session. Platelet rich plasma (PRP) with HPL injections is eff ective for treating: the eye area, fi ne lines and wrinkles, improvement in skins tone & texture, full face rejuvenation, décolletage, dull dry skin, crepey neck, and back of hands PRP 2x is a new cutting edge technique which is 10 times more effi cient than regular PRP as it uses PRP lysate. Th is new technique held us to extract and target the platelet cytoplasm directly hence helping to jump-start neo collagen genesis and the healing process.

She has written four books about permanent makeup, including her last book “Medical Pigmentation and the correction of defective PMU’’. She is regularly invited to participate in international judging and to give presentations in the field of permanent makeup.

Abstract:

Many application possibilities with regards to the treatment of various types of scars, vitiligo and alopecia areata will be presented. Techniques are discussed and examples shown. Medical pigmentation is the insertion of (diluted) pigments into the leather skin through various needle modules or by making the scar more flexible, for instance in the case of burns, through ‘scar relaxation’ or just by normalizing the melanocytes by a dark border around a depigmented scar.

Speaker
Biography:

Gayle is a permanent Makeup Artist at Bodyworks by Gayle, USA. She frequently has clients travel from across the U.S., ocean and as far as Europe so that Gayle is able to apply her artistic talent.

Abstract:

I ’ve been asked to enlighten you on the actual art of permanent cosmetic tattooing. So today we’re going to examine the realities and expel the myths of these procedures. 1. Safety standards 2. Who receives permanent cosmetic? 3. Why they seek out these procedures? 4. Is it different from Traditional Tattooing? 5. Is there a difference of procedures for men compared to woman? 6. How my clients locate me 7. Doing corrective work and Training in the art of cosmetic application If my potential client coming in for a consultation makes me aware that they have an acute illness, for the practitioners legal safety we must ask for a release from their treating physician before any procedures can be started. I see clients with everything from birth defects, alopecia, cancer pre, during and post chemo, trichoteillomania, burn and accident survivors as well as the everyday woman just wanting to enhance their look. There might be times when a client comes in with several questions that are beyond the scope of my practice as a permanent cosmetic technician. You can ask them to have their physician call with any questions for the safety of their patient. A technician may not call the doctor themselves as this will break the HIPA act. Things of importance are the clients & practitioners safety, secondly the comfort of the client. If your client is comfortable, the procedures will go much smoother. One of the most common myths is that it is NOT Tattooing! What image comes to your mind when you hear the word “tattooing”? It will be there forever? In some cases it is. Whenever you implant ink of any kind under the skin, this is tattooing. The tattooing of the 60’s and earlier was quite a different technique than it is today. Most people are familiar with the body tattoos our grandfathers got. We see them as a faded, distorted blob of something, not quite distinguishable but still there, none the less. This is another illustration of someone obsessed with tattoos, distorted but there. Permanent cosmetic technicians differ from body tattoo artists in the use of a different needle stroke. This being a shorter stroke as the facial skin is thinner and in many cases with the older patient and those with medical issues the skin is extremely delicate. If I do body work for camouflaging, the needle stroke is the same as a traditional tattoo artist but the experiences are different. Typically your standard body tattoo artist is not familiar with the safest way to handle cosmetic tattooing. You wouldn’t buy sandals to wear outside in the dead of winter to protect your feet from the snow. You would purchase boots. Seeking out a professional cosmetic tattoo artist is your best bet for any facial work or even reconstruction work on the body, such as the areola. In cosmetic tattooing, the inks we usually use consist of organic & inorganic pigments. This will need to be touched up about every 5 to 10 years to keep its fresh natural look. These pigments are not conducive for body art

Abstract:

Permanent cosmetic makeup is cosmetic tattooing. Th e specialized techniques used for permanent cosmetics are oft en referred to as “micropigmentation”, “micropigment implantation” or “dermagraphics”. Th e cosmetic implantation technique deposits colored pigment into the upper reticular layer of the dermis. Th e fi eld of Permanent Cosmetics (Cosmetic Tattooing) is rapidly expanding in popularity. Women all over the country are learning of the benefi ts of having Permanent eyeliner, eyebrow coloring, lip color or lip liner. What could be better than to wake up looking as good in the morning as you did in the evening? Anyone benefi ts from the young to the elderly, men and woman who desires a soft , natural enhancement to their appearance. It is especially benefi cial to people who can’t wear other cosmetics due to allergies and skin sensitivities. Active people who want to look their best for activities such as swimming, hiking, biking, tennis, and aerobics. Th ose who don't want to worry about "sweating off " or reapplying cosmetics. For the vision impaired, which have diffi culty applying cosmetics and others with motor impairments such as arthritis, Parkinson’s disease, multiple sclerosis, stroke survivors. Even those with unsteady hands or are to busy to apply their make up. Medical procedures to help correct skin discolorations, scaring from surgeries, accidents or burn victims, alopecia, and cancer survivors who have lost hair threw chemo therapy. Permanent cosmetic procedures can be very subtle or dramatic depending on what you are looking for. Lash Enhancement ~ Eyeliner ~ Eyebrows ~ Lip Liner ~ Full Lips ~ Scar Cover up ~ Areola & Skin discolorations. Permanent cosmetic procedures are performed by using various methods which includes the pen rotary machine, up scaled digital linier machines, coil machine (traditional tattoo gun) the non-machine or hand method. Th e process includes an initial consultation, application of pigment, and at least one or more follow up visits for adjusting the shape, color or density of the pigment. Technically, permanent cosmetic procedures are considered permanent because the color is implanted into the upper part of the dermal layer of the skin and cannot be washed off . However, as with any tattoo, fading can and oft en does occur. It requires periodic maintenance, color re-enhancement or color re-freshing. Just like hair color, furniture that may be located near a window, or even house paint. Pigment implanted in the skin, will fade with time. Most people experience some discomfort. Th is may vary according to each individual's pain threshold and the skills of the technician performing the service. Pain management, including various topical anesthetic, anesthetic locals and nerve blocks (administered by a doctor or dentist). Your technician should discuss these methods with you to determine which suits you best. Provided that OSHA standards and proper licensing is obtained for each individual state. All needles and parts are disposed of aft er each client. Proper sterilization and sanitary guidelines are met procedure are considered very safe. Th e possibility that you would have any problems or reactions from these procedures is almost non-existent with today’s health standards. Professionals are given continued opportunities for education in practicing precise methods of sanitation and sterilization. Post procedural instructions, if followed carefully, will completely eliminate any risks of infection. Th e application is deep enough to penetrate the minute capillaries in the dermal layer of skin. Th ere have been few reactions to the pigments. Some doctors suggest that the patch test be eliminated because allergies can develop from anything, at anytime. Th ey also recommend that people with allergies should have permanent cosmetic procedures done because it replaces cosmetic products that people may be sensitive to. Th ere have been very few reactions to pigments and rare in cases of blue-based red pigments. Generally, there is some swelling in the treated area, while eyebrows may show little or no aft er eff ect. Eyeliner and lips may show more swelling. May last from 2 to 72 hours. During the procedure there may be some minor bleeding and or bruising. Th ere is usually some tenderness for a few days. Th e color is much darker than you may expect for the fi rst 5-7 days. Th en soft ens to color selected. Although the procedure is considered permanent, these procedures do have fl exibility in changing color and shape to some extent. Colors will appear darker immediately following the procedure but will soft en and lighten during the healing process. Th e healing time is diff erent for each individual and procedure. A touch-up is a color re-enhancement. Th e implanted color is sometimes not perfect aft er the fi rst procedure. Th ese procedures usually require at least one follow-up aft er the initial procedure. It is recommended that you do not traumatize the skin again for a minimum of 4 weeks. 6 weeks is better but of course, your individual needs take precedence. 8 weeks is recommended aft er a lip procedure. Permanent make is the make up of the future and future is here.

Abstract:

Acne keloidalis nuchae is a frustrating disorder for both patient and physician when it is refractory to nonsurgical treatment options. Excision with adjuvant steroid injection is an accepted standard treatment for extensive or intractable lesions. However, surgical excision at this vascular anatomical region can be a tedious and bloody procedure. Repairs with graft ing and fl aps usually lead to less than satisfactory cosmetic results. We describe a surgical technique for refractory acne keloidalis nuchae that provides a clean and relatively bloodless surgical fi eld and leaves the patient with cosmetically pleasing results. Nine patients with refractory occipital scalp and/or posterior neck acne keloidalis nuchae were treated with electrosection, using a blended cut and coagulation current on the Conmed Sabre 2400 electrosurgical unit. Healing was by second-intention, with no graft ing or fl aps utilized. Th e surgical excision was followed by monthly post-operative intralesional triamcinolone acetonide (40 mg) injections for 3 months. All nine patients experienced excellent cosmetic results with no evidence of recurrence during follow up periods ranging from 2 to 21 months. Intra-operative bleeding was minimal, maintaining a clear operating fi eld for the surgeon. Post-operative pain was controlled with acetaminophen alone or acetaminophen with codeine or hydrocodone. Electrosection with second-intention healing is a quick and eff ective technique for the treatment of refractory acne keloidalis nuchae with excellent aesthetic results.

Abstract:

Psoriasis is a chronic autoimmune infl ammatory skin and joint disorder in which environmental, and behavioral infl uences are involved and has a prevalence of 2-3% worldwide . Vitamin D plays an important role as a regulator of the immune system by acting on CD4+ T lymphocytes as well as on the production and action of several cytokines. Since there is compelling evidence that vitamin D functions in the establishment and/or maintenance of immunological self-tolerance, it was of interest to us to study the relationship between vitamin D and chronic plaque psoriasis. Aft er getting IRB approval from the College of Medicine Ethical Committee, twenty eight (11 males and 17 females) and corresponding matching controls (18 males and 19 females) who consented were enrolled. Th e cases were examined clinically for severity of psoriasis. Serum levels of vitamin D, parathyroid hormone (PTH), calcium and phosphate were estimated for both cases and controls. Th ere was no signifi cant correlation between psoriasis severity and calcium or phosphate levels as compared to control patients who do not have the disease (Pearson's coeffi cient : 0.21, 0.17 respectively). On the other there was a decline in PTH levels, in comparison to control patients, but it was nearly signifi cant. However, there was a signifi cant correlation between psoriasis and serum vitamin D levels (P<0.001). Th e present study shows a signifi cant negative correlation between vitamin D serum levels and psoriasis in our patients.

Abstract:

Our studies began showing that rats treated with aqueous extract of Croton cajucara Benth increased stimulated lipolysis. Currently, we study the eff ectiveness of treatment for chronic anti-stress manual therapy (MT) and the eff ects of a single session of manual lymph drainage (MLD) in humans. Th e objective of this study was to evaluate the perceived stress using questionnaire (PSQ), variability of heart rate (VHR) to assess the sympathetic (S, LF) and parasympathetic (PS, HF) tonus and collect urine to analyze the electrolyte balance in the volunteers. Treatment with MT was eff ective in reducing stress, as observed with a decrease in HR and values of QEP. Th e MLD was eff ective in maintaining sodium excretion in women not using oral contraceptives (OC) while in OC we observed increasing amount of water excreted. Moreover, independent of the users, MLD increased LF/HF ratio, indicating an increase in S and decrease in PS. In pigs, the effi ciency of massage therapy and caff eine on lipolysis was evaluated. Th e massage therapy facilitated lipolysis and caff eine applied topically for 15 days was eff ective in increasing lipolysis only with the use of ultrasound. Th e eff ect of supplementation with aqueous extract of Siberian Ginseng (SG) was assessed morphology of adipocytes isolated from rat fat pads trained or not. SG treatment was eff ective in reducing the area of the rat epididymal adipocytes untrained and reduce the area of mesenteric adipocytes from both groups trained or not. We conclude that it is possible to scientifi cally validate the effi cacy of physical therapy treatments or medicated common in clinical aesthetic.

Abstract:

The use of cryotherapy is widely used in cosmetic clinics in Brazil promising the reduction of the localized fat, although there is no study that proves its eff ectiveness or its mechanisms of action. However, we fi nd in the scientifi c literature evidences that the exposure to low temperatures environments, as well, the immersion of the body into cold water were effi cient to induce lipolysis. Th e treatments at the clinics are always performed with hydroalcoholic gels or solution with camphor and mint which promotes an eff ect of cold sensation without scientifi c evidence of their results. So, initially we aimed to evaluate clinically, through ultrasonography, perimetry and cutaneous fold the chronic eff ect of the cryotherapic bandage (CB) in healthy women which do not use oral contraceptives. Aft er 12 sessions, there is a signifi cant reduction in the thickness of abdominal adipose tissue. We also investigate through heart rate variability and ergoespirometry that CB treatment induces a moderate hypothermia, and an increase in the sympathetic tone associated to an increase of the basal metabolism in lean men, but these eff ects did not occur in overweight individuals. In isolated adipocytes from pigs, the association of cryotherapy with the phonophoresis with caff eine was tested, and we observed that the cryotherapy aft er the phonophoresis, is capable to increase the basal lipolytic activity. Th ese results allow us to strongly suggest that the use of cryotherapic bandage is effi cient to reduce localized fat.
