ABSTRACT

El envejecimiento facial es una sinergia compleja de cambios texturales de la piel, hiper- o hipoactividad muscular, reabsorción del tejido graso y resorción ósea. El déficit de volumen resultante, la deflación y la posterior caída del tercio medio facial produce una cara menos atractiva y juvenil. Los procedimientos inyectables en región malar son cada vez más populares y solicitados por los pacientes. El conocimiento de la anatomía de la cara media es fundamental para el inyector. La comprensión de la irrigación facial puede ayudar a disminuir la exposición a la aparición de hematomas y complicaciones vasculares severas. Existen múltiples técnicas de inyección propuestas para el tercio medio, en este artículo presentamos una técnica original, simple, segura y eficaz con resultados satisfactorios y riesgo reducido


Facial aging is a complex synergy of textural skin changes, muscle hyperactivity, fat dysmorphism, bone resorption. The resulting volume deficit and deflation of the mid face produces a less attractive and youthful face. Injectable midface procedures are becoming increasingly popular and requested by patients. Knowledge of the anatomy of the midface is critical for the injector. Understanding the irrigation of the face can help decrease the risk of hematoma and severe vascular complications. There are multiple injection techniques proposed for the middle third, in this article we present a simple, safe and effective technique with satisfactory results and lower risk

ABSTRACT

Pivoting Brow Lift es una nueva opción terapéutica cuyas ventajas son tres mínimas incisiones, prácticamente imperceptibles, bien aceptadas por pacientes de todas las edades, sexo y incluso pacientes calvos. Una incisión se realiza en la región temporal y otra dentro del cuero cabelludo en la región medio frontal o en una arruga en pacientes calvos. La disección en región frontal es sub-perióstica, muchas veces llega a la punta nasal para reposicionarla. La disección en la región temporal se realiza entre las hojas superficiales y profundas extendiéndose hasta el tarso y canto externo del ojo; en la región palpebral la disección se realiza entre la piel y el musculo. La fijación son dos puntos externos en el cuero cabelludo y unos papeles adherentes. Los puntos del cuero cabelludo se retiran a los 14 días. Evita las complejas fijaciones que se realizan actualmente con tornillos, puntos internos o Endotime. La sencillez del procedimiento hace que este se pueda realizar entre 30 y 45 minutos, con anestesia local y sedación; esto permite lograr una mayor seguridad operatoria. Se han documentado pacientes tratados hace 9 años donde se demuestra la duración en el tiempo. El bajo índice de complicaciones y la alta satisfacción de los pacientes documentadas en encuestas hace que este procedimiento pueda ser considerado como una nueva opción terapéutica.

ABSTRACT

Introdução: O aumento da expectativa média de vida leva a população a buscar, com maior frequência, tratamentos estéticos que visem o rejuvenescimento da face e do pescoço. O Ultrassom microfocado (MFU) é descrito como uma opção de tratamento não-invasiva para a flacidez facial e o envelhecimento. Objetivo: Revisar a literatura científica quanto ao uso do MFU no processo de rejuvenescimento facial e correção da flacidez da pele. Metodologia: Trata-se de uma revisão narrativa da literatura, baseada na pesquisa de artigos científicos nas bases de dados PubMed e Biblioteca Virtual em Saúde realizada durante o mês de março de 2022, através da seguinte estratégia de busca: "Microfocused Ultrasound AND Facial Rejuvenation AND Skin Laxity Treatment". Um total de 19 manuscritos foram incluídos em síntese qualitativa. Desenvolvimento: O MFU pode ser aplicado no tecido subcutâneo, produzindo pequenos pontos de coagulação térmica dentro da camada reticular média a profunda da derme e subderme. A aplicação de calor nesses discretos pontos de coagulação térmica faz com que haja neossíntese de colágeno e consequente enrijecimento da pele. Estudos recentes evidenciaramresultados promissores quanto a aplicação do MFU em regiões de sulco nasolabial, linha da mandíbula, sobrancelhas, região infraorbital, palpebra inferior e ligamentos de retenção zigomático-bucais. Considerações finais: O MFU tem se mostrado uma técnica segura, sendo considerado eficaz, não-invasiva, bem tolerada pelos pacientes e viável para a prática clínica médica e odontológica.


Introduction: The increase in average life expectancy leads the population to seek, with greater frequency, aesthetic treatments aimed at rejuvenating the face and neck. Microfocused ultrasound (MFU) is described as a non-invasive treatment option for facial sagging and aging. Objective: To review the scientific literature regarding the use of MFU in the process of facial rejuvenation and correction of sagging skin. Methodology: This is a narrative review of the literature, based on the search for scientific articles in the PubMed and Virtual Health Library databases carried out during the month of March 2022, using the following search strategy: "Microfocused Ultrasound AND Facial Rejuvenation AND Skin Laxity Treatment". A total of 19 manuscripts were included in a qualitative synthesis. Development: MFU can be applied to the subcutaneous tissue, producing small points of thermal coagulation within the middle to deep reticular layer of the dermis and subdermis. The application of heat to these discrete points of thermal coagulation causes collagen neosynthesis and consequent skin tightening. Recent studies have shown promising results regarding the application of MFU in regions of the nasolabial sulcus, jaw line, eyebrows, infraorbital region, lower eyelid and zygomatic-buccal retention ligaments. Final considerations: MFU has been shown to be a safe technique, being considered effective, non-invasive, well tolerated by patients and viable for clinical medical and dental practice.

ABSTRACT

SUMMARY: Several studies have shown beneficial effects of platelet-rich plasma. However, there are very few studies investigating the effectiveness of PRP in the neck region. We aimed to assess the efficacy of PRP injection for neck rejuvenation in females aged 40-55. Fifty-two female consecutive participants had PRP injected and roller applied in three sessions at 3-week intervals. Evaluations were blindly performed by comparing the improvements from the pre- to post-application assessments of anatomical measurements of the neck area based on before and after photography of the participants by two anatomists and three medical aesthetic doctors. The Fitzpatrick Skin Scale, Fitzpatrick Goldman Scale, Wrinkle Assessment Scale (Dedo classification system) and patient satisfaction scale were used for assessment. Additionally, skin stiffness and elasticity, cervicomental angle and jawline angle measurements were performed to analyze anatomical changes in the neck area. The study enrolled 52 volunteers with a mean age of 48.60±5.35 years, mean body weight of 63.21±8.43 kg and mean height of 163.25±4.56 cm. Significant differences were found in the elasticity, jawline angle, cervicomental angle, wrinkling, elasticity G and patient satisfaction scores before and after the treatment. When the results of anatomical parameters and scales are compared, it was revealed that PRP is effective in neck rejuvenation.


RESUMEN: Varios investigaciones han demostrado los efectos beneficiosos del plasma rico en plaquetas. Sin embargo, existen muy pocos estudios que investiguen la efectividad del PRP en la región del cuello. Nuestro objetivo fue evaluar la eficacia de la inyección de PRP para el rejuvenecimiento del cuello en mujeres de 40 a 55 años. A cincuenta y dos mujeres participantes consecutivas se les inyectó PRP y se les aplicó rodillo en tres sesiones a intervalos de 3 semanas. Las evaluaciones se realizaron a ciegas comparando las mejoras de las evaluaciones previas y posteriores a la aplicación de las medidas anatómicas del área del cuello basadas en fotografías de antes y después de los participantes realizadas por dos anatomistas y tres médicos especialistas en cirugía estética. Para la evaluación se utilizaron la escala de piel de Fitzpatrick, la escala de Fitzpatrick Goldman, la escala de evaluación de arrugas (sistema de clasificación Dedo) y la escala de satisfacción del paciente. Además, se realizaron mediciones de rigidez y elasticidad de la piel, ángulo cervicomentoniano y ángulo de la línea de la mandíbula, para analizar los cambios anatómicos en el área del cuello. El estudio inscribió a 52 voluntarios con una edad media de 48,60±5,35 años, un peso corporal medio de 63,21±8,43 kg y una altura media de 163,25±4,56 cm. Se encontraron diferencias significativas en las puntuaciones de elasticidad, ángulo mandibular, ángulo cervicomentoniano, arrugas, elasticidad G y satisfacción del paciente antes y después del tratamiento. Cuando se compararon los resultados de los parámetros anatómicos y las escalas, se reveló que el PRP es eficaz en el rejuvenecimiento del cuello.

ABSTRACT

A blefaroplastia é atualmente o tratamento cirúrgico mais indicado na reversão dos efeitos do envelhecimento palpebral. Porém, a técnica é cara, extremamente invasiva, com recuperação pós-cirúrgica lenta e só pode ser realizada por cirurgiões em ambiente hospitalar. O ultrassom tem se mostrado um método seguro e eficaz no tratamento antienvelhecimento cutâneo, mas pouco se tem pesquisado sobre o efeito do ultrassom na dermatocalase. Este estudo piloto têm como objeto avaliar um emissor ultrassônico no tratamento de rejuvenescimento da região periorbicular. Trata-se uma pesquisa qualitativa descritiva de estudo de casos, no qual foram avaliadas duas voluntárias submetidas a tratamento com ultrassom. Após as sessões, foi possível observar retomada de viço e redução de flacidez palpebral, com consequente minimização da dermatocalase e rugas adjacentes. O uso do ultrassom se mostrou satisfatório e eficaz, principalmente na remodelação na região acometida por dermatocalase. Além disso, a técnica apresenta melhor custo-benefício e recuperação pós-procedimento mais curta em relação a outras terapias atualmente empregadas para tratamento da região periorbital. (AU)

ABSTRACT

Esta pesquisa buscou mapear conteúdos relativos ao antienvelhecimento em revistas de grande circulação e no noticiário brasileiro, entre 1º de janeiro de 2016 e 31 de dezembro de 2019. Foram investigadas as revistas Claudia, Boa Forma, VIP e Carbono Uomo. Houve ainda coleta no portal de notícias G1, da Rede Globo de Televisão, voltado ao público geral. Foram criados dois corpora distintos formados pelos conteúdos do G1 e das revistas que, então, foram submetidos à Classificação Hierárquica Descendente pelo software IRaMuTeQ, dando origem a dois subcorpora e quatro classes para cada um. Os resultados apontam uma forte tendência mercadológica nas revistas, que buscam conduzir os leitores ao consumo de produtos e à realização de procedimentos estéticos. Por outro lado, as notícias jornalísticas apregoam um modelo de vida mais saudável como principal prática antienvelhecimento, ao mesmo tempo que alertam sobre os riscos envolvidos nos procedimentos e produtos estéticos irregulares. Em geral, o conteúdo das revistas dissipa representações sociais que idealizam um padrão de beleza do corpo jovial, associando a velhice à fealdade, enquanto o do portal de notícias G1 voltam-se à saúde e longevidade.(AU)


This survey aimed to map anti-aging content, in magazines with wide circulation and also in Brazilian news, between January 1, 2016 and December 31, 2019. Claudia, Boa Forma, VIP and Carbono Uomo magazines were studied. News were also collected from the G1 news portal, from Globo television network, aimed at the general audience. Two distinct corpora formed by the contents of the G1 and the magazines were created, which were then submitted to the Descending Hierarchical Classification, by the IRaMuTeQ software, leading to two subcorpora and four classes for each. The results show a strong market orientation in the magazines, which aim to lead readers to purchase products and undertake aesthetic procedures. The news reports, on the other way, promote a healthier life model as the main anti-aging practice, while warning about the risks involved in irregular aesthetic procedures and products. In general, the content of the magazines spreads social representations which idealize a pattern of beauty of a young body, connecting old age with ugliness, whereas that of the G1 news portal are focused on health and longevity.(AU)


Esta iniciativa buscó mapear material de antienvejecimiento, en revistas de gran tirada y en las noticias de Brasil, entre el 1 de enero de 2016 y el 31 de diciembre de 2019. Se analizaron las revistas Claudia, Boa Forma, VIP y Carbono Uomo. También se recogieron noticias del sitio de noticias G1 y de la red de televisión Globo, ambas dirigidas al público en general. Se crearon dos corpora distintos formados por el contenido del G1 y de las revistas, que luego fueron sometidos a la Clasificación Jerárquica Descendente, por el software IRaMuTeQ, dando lugar a dos subcorpora y cuatro clases para cada uno de los corpora. Los resultados señalan una fuerte orientación del mercado de promoción en las revistas, que buscan llevar a los lectores a consumir productos y realizar procedimientos estéticos. En cambio, las noticias periodísticas difunden un modelo de vida más saludable como la principal práctica antienvejecimiento, mientras que al mismo tiempo advierten sobre los riesgos que implican los procedimientos irregulares y los productos estéticos. De forma general, el contenido de las revistas difunde representaciones sociales que idealizan un estándar de belleza del cuerpo joven, asociando la vejez con la fealdad, mientras que el del portal de noticias G1 se orienta a la salud y la longevidad.(AU)

ABSTRACT

Introdução: o processo de senescência do indivíduo ocorre de forma lenta e contínua e pode gerar inúmeras alterações, dentre elas o envelhecimento cutâneo, derivado do declínio das atividades celulares. Inúmeros recursos têm sido criados ao longo dos anos com a finalidade de frear e ou reverter os aspectos inestéticos da pele, ocasionados por esse processo. Um novo recurso terapêutico vem sendo usado com o objetivo de promover o rejuvenescimento através da diminuição de rugas e linhas de expressão, trata-se do Jato de plasma. Objetivo: avaliar o padrão de variação térmica do tecido tratado com jato de plasma, através da termografia infravermelha. Metodologia: trata-se de uma série de casos clínicos que envolveu 5 pacientes mulheres, com idade acima de 40 anos que apresentavam rugas faciais. As pacientes foram avaliadas e anestesiadas previamente. Em seguida, foi realizada a terapia com o jato de plasma, na região supraorbital. As pacientes foram avaliadas termograficamente antes e depois da anestesia e pósterapia. Resultado: constatou-se através da análise termográfica, uma significativa variação no coeficiente de temperatura da pele onde foi aplicado o anestésico e em seguida o jato de plasma (ΔT > 0,4 °C), em todas as pacientes. Conclusão: o presente estudo comprovou através da utilização da termografia, que o jato de plasma foi capaz de gerar um aumento da temperatura local. Os autores sugerem que tal variação térmica pode ser resultante de um processo de vasodilatação na região tratada.


Introduction: individual's senescence process takes place slowly and continuously beyond generates several changes including skin aging, since the decline in cellular activities. Countless resources have been created over the years, with the goal of stopping and / or reversing the unsightly aspects of the skin caused by this process. Thus, plasma jet, a new therapeutic resource has been used in order to promote rejuvenation through the reduction of wrinkles and expression lines. Objective: To evaluate the pattern of thermal variation of the tissue treated with a plasma jet, using infrared thermography. Methodology: this was a series of clinical cases involving 5 female patients over the age of 40 who had facial wrinkles. Patients were previously evaluated and anesthetized. Then, plasma jet therapy was performed in the supra-orbital region. Patients were evaluated for thermal imaging before and after anesthesia and post-therapy. Result: it was found through thermographic analysis, a significant variation in the temperature coefficient of the skin of all patients where the anesthetic and plasma jet were applied (ΔT > 0.4 °C). Conclusion: the present study proved through the use of thermography that the plasma jet was able to generate an increase in local temperature. The authors suggest that such thermal variation may be the result of a process of vasodilation in the treated region.

ABSTRACT

Objetivo: Describir los resultados funcionales de la blefaroplastia superior. Métodos: Se realizó un estudio descriptivo longitudinal prospectivo de 99 pacientes (198 párpados) con diagnóstico de dermatochalasis de párpado superior, algunos asociados a ptosis palpebral y de la ceja, en el Instituto Cubano de Oftalmología "Ramón Pando Ferrer", en el período comprendido de febrero del año 2019 a enero de 2020. Resultados: El 85,8 por ciento fueron del sexo femenino y el 43,5 por ciento eran mayores de 62 años. Predominó la dermatochalasis del párpado superior y la ptosis palpebral en el 68,4 por ciento, así como la dermatochalasis y la ptosis palpebral severa, las cuales representaron el 47,5 y el 50 por ciento respectivamente. En el grupo de 56 a 61 años sobresalió la dermatochalasis del párpado superior y la ptosis de la ceja, con el 61 por ciento. En el 98 por ciento de los casos intervenidos se obtuvo la corrección total de la dermatochalasis del párpado superior, la corrección de la ptosis en el 86 por ciento y de la ceja en el 88 por ciento. No se presentaron complicaciones en el 94 por ciento de los párpados intervenidos. La complicación más frecuente fue el sangramiento, con el 2,5 por ciento. Conclusiones: El abordaje de la ptosis palpebral y de las cejas transblefaroplastia superior logra en la mayoría de los pacientes la corrección total de estas afecciones y de la dermatochalasis. Este procedimiento constituye una herramienta importante para el rejuvenecimiento facial(AU)


Objective: Describe the functional results of upper blepharoplasty. Methods: A prospective longitudinal descriptive study was conducted of 99 patients (198 eyelids) diagnosed with upper eyelid dermatochalasis, in some cases associated to eyelid and eyebrow ptosis. The study was carried out at Ramón Pando Ferrer Cuban Institute of Ophthalmology from February 2019 to January 2020. Results: Of the total patients studied, 85.8 percent were female and 43.5 percent were aged over 62 years. Upper eyelid dermatochalasis and palpebral ptosis prevailed with 68.4 percent, whereas severe dermatochalasis and palpebral ptosis represented 47.5 percent and 50 percent, respectively. A predominance was found of upper eyelid dermatochalasis and eyebrow ptosis in the 56-61 age group (61 percent). Total correction of upper eyelid dermatochalasis was achieved in 98 percent of the cases intervened, eyelid ptosis correction in 86 percent and eyebrow ptosis correction in 88 percent. No complications appeared in 94 percent of the eyelids intervened. The most common complication was bleeding with 2.5 percent. Conclusions: In most cases, management of palpebral ptosis and upper eyebrow transblepharoplasty achieves total correction of these disorders and dermatochalasis. The procedure is an important tool for facial rejuvenation(AU)

ABSTRACT

Abstract Objective The present study aimed to explore the opinion and ethical consideration of vulvovaginal aesthetics procedures (VVAPs) among health professionals and medical students in Saudi Arabia. Methods This is a cross-sectional study performed between January 2020 and April 2020. Data was collected through electronic media, WhatsApp, and emails. The results were analyzed by applying the Students t-test, and correlations were considered significant if they presented a p-value<0.05. Results There is significant demand to educate doctors, health professionals, medical students, and gynecologists for the VVAPs to have a solid foundation, justified indications, and knowledge about various aesthetic options. Although female doctors, medical students, young doctors, and gynecologists have more knowledge about VVAPs, all health professionals ought to be aware of recent trends in vulvovaginal aesthetics (VVA). The present analysis determined that VVA should be under the domain of gynecologists, rather than under that of plastic surgeons, general surgeons, and cosmetologists. Themajority of the participants considered that vaginal rejuvenation, "G-spot" augmentation, clitoral surgery, and hymenoplasty are not justifiable on medical grounds. Conclusion The decision to opt for different techniques for vaginal tightening and revitalization should be taken very carefully, utilizing the shared decision-making approach. Ethical aspects and moral considerations are important key factors before embarking in the VVAPs purely for cosmetic reasons. Further research is required to determine the sexual, psychological, and body image outcomes for women who underwent elective VVAPs. Moreover, medical educators must consider VVAPs as part of the undergraduate and postgraduate medical curriculum.

ABSTRACT

OBJECTIVE@#This study explored the rejuvenation mechanisms of Thai polyherbal medicines using different approaches, including in vitro methods, as well as a well-defined nematode model, Caenorhabditis elegans.@*METHODS@#THP-R-SR012 decoction was selected from 23 polyherbal medicines, based on metal-chelating and chain-breaking antioxidant capacities. The influences of this extract on the survival and some stress biomarkers of C. elegans under paraquat-induced oxidative stress were evaluated. Furthermore, lifespan analysis and levels of lipofuscin accumulation were examined in senescent nematodes. The phytochemical profile of THP-R-SR012 was analyzed.@*RESULTS@#Supplementation with THP-R-SR012 decoction significantly increased the mean lifespan and reduced the oxidative damage to C. elegans under oxidative stress conditions. Further, THP-R-SR012 supplementation slightly influenced the lifespan and the level of lipofuscin accumulation during adulthood. Antioxidant-related phytochemical constituents of THP-R-SR012 decoction were rutin, naringenin, 3,4-dihydroxybenzoic acid, gallic acid, glycyrrhizic acid, demethoxycurcumin and 18α-glycyrrhetinic acid.@*CONCLUSION@#The antioxidant potential of THP-R-SR012 was due to its scavenging properties, its enhancement of antioxidant-related enzyme activities, and the presence of the antioxidant-related compound. These results support the traditional use of THP-R-SR012 decoction as a tonic for nourishing and strengthening the whole body.

ABSTRACT

Procedimentos de rejuvenescimento facial substitutos da cirurgia tradicional tornaram-se cada vez mais populares para promover uma aparência jovial com procedimentos minimamente invasivos, como toxina botulínica injetável, preenchimento de tecidos moles e peelings químicos. No entanto, complicações podem ocorrer mesmo na presença de um injetor habilidoso e experiente. Apresentamos o caso de uma paciente submetida a reanimação labial estática usando retalho dermoadiposo para lesão do nervo facial direito após remoção de nódulos como complicação de preenchimento. A "abordagem modificada de bull horn" foi realizada para elevação do lábio superior em torno das asas nasais e columela e ao longo do sulco nasolabial direito. O retalho foi desepitelizado e obtido. Usando a ponta aberta de uma pequena cânula de lipoaspiração, a porção distal do retalho foi encapsulada e fixada diretamente em C-loop e foram utilizados pontos U, transfixando o retalho para o periósteo do arco zigomático. Nos três anos de seguimento não foram observadas complicações significativas e a paciente não relatou nenhuma limitação funcional ou insatisfação com o aspecto das cicatrizes no sulco nasolabial e ao redor das asas nasais e da columela.


Facial rejuvenation procedures to circumvent traditional surgery have become increasingly popular to promote a youthful appearance with minimally invasive procedures such as injectable botulinum toxin, soft-tissue fillers, and chemical peels. Nevertheless, complications can occur even with an astute and experienced injector. Here we present the case of a patient who underwent static lip reanimation using a dermoadiposal flap for right facial nerve damage following nodule removal as a filler complication. A "modified bulls horn approach" to the upper lip lift was performed around the nasal wings and columella and along the right nasolabial fold. The flap was de-epithelized and harvested. Using the open tip of a small liposuction cannula, the distal portion of the flap was tunneled and fixed directly in a C-loop fashion using U stitches, transfixing the flap to the periosteum of the zygomatic arch. At 3 years follow-up, no significant complications were observed, and the patient reported no functional limitations or dissatisfaction with the scars in the nasolabial fold or around the nasal wings and columella.

ABSTRACT

Introdução: Essa revisão sistemática foi conduzida para avaliar se a associação da aplicação da injeção de agregados plaquetários quando comparada a outras terapias faciais favorece no rejuvenescimento facial em pacientes adultos. Métodos: A pesquisa buscou ensaios clínicos randomizados que compararam uso de técnicas de rejuvenescimento facial isoladas com as mesmas técnicas aliadas à injeção de agregados plaquetários. A busca foi realizada em bases de dados indexadas e literatura cinzenta. A ferramenta de risco de viés da "Cochrane Collaboration" foi aplicada para a avaliação da qualidade dos estudos. Resultados: Foram identificados 7137 artigos. Apenas quatro estudos permaneceram na síntese qualitativa, e os demais foram considerados com risco indefinido de viés nos domínios chaves. Conclusão: Existem poucos estudos na literatura que comparam o uso de agregados plaquetários em rejuvenescimento facial e os que estão disponíveis têm risco de viés "indefinido" ou "alto". Há necessidade de realizar mais estudos clínicos bem delineados que comparem o uso de injeção de agregados plaquetários associados ou não às técnicas de rejuvenescimento facial.


Introduction: This systematic review was conducted to assess whether the use of a platelet aggregate injection with or without associated facial rejuvenation techniques favors facial rejuvenation in adult patients. Methods: Randomized clinical trials that compared the use of techniques for facial rejuvenation alone with the same techniques coupled with the injection of platelet aggregates were searched. The search was performed in indexed databases and in the gray literature. The Cochrane Collaboration bias risk tool was applied to assess the quality of the studies. Results: In total, 7137 articles were identified. Only four studies remained in the qualitative synthesis, and the others were considered as having undefined bias risk in the key domains. Conclusion: There are few studies in the literature that compare the use of platelet aggregates in facial rejuvenation and those that are available have a risk of "undefined" or "high" bias. There is a need for more well-designed clinical studies comparing the use of platelet aggregate injection with or without associated facial rejuvenation techniques.

ABSTRACT

The field of biomaterials has seen a strong rejuvenation due to the new potential to modulate immune system in our body. This special class of materials is called “immunomodulatory biomaterials”. Generally, three fundamental strategies are followed in the design of immunomodulatory biomaterials: (1) immuno-inert biomaterials, (2) immuno-activating biomaterials, and (3) immuno-tolerant biomaterials. While many applications of immuno-inert biomaterials such as biocompatible medical implants have been already proposed in the past decades, the ability to engineer biological activity into synthetic materials greatly increases the number of their potential uses and improves their performance in more traditional applications. The major focus of researchers is now set on developing immuno-tolerant biomaterials for anti-inflammatory therapies. In this review, we therefore introduce recent developments of immuno-tolerant biomaterials. Especially we introduce an apoptotic cell membrane-inspired polymer and its post-inflammatory effects on immune cells in this article.

ABSTRACT

Periorbital dermatochalasis with upper eyelid hooding, brow ptosis, and sunken eyelids may appear with age. Because classic blepharoplasty is unable to correct all these issues, we developed a single operation, which we present herein, to correct dermatochalasis accompanied by sunken eyelids. This sub-brow approach is used with simultaneous browpexy by fixing the orbital portion of the orbicularis oculi muscle (OOM) to the periosteum immediately above the supraorbital rim using sutures with 3 or 4 points of fixation and correcting sunken eyelids by burying the elevated dermis, fat, and OOM after de-epithelization in the lower flap of the sunken upper eyelid along the submuscular plane. This method enables the correction of sunken eyelids during the same operation without requiring an additional procedure, and offers the advantages of a shortened operation time and decreased cost. The presence of sunken eyelids in patients with dermatochalasis and severe lateral hooding may be corrected by the procedure described herein, thereby achieving periorbital rejuvenation while maintaining the original shape of the eyes.

ABSTRACT

Erythema ab igne (EAI) is a persistent chronic skin condition that is characterized by reticulated macular hyperpigmented lesions caused by repeated exposure to infrared radiation. EAI has reemerged in recent years because of the increasing infrared exposure due to the use of new technologies, such as portable computers and automobile seat heaters. We report a case of a 54-year-old female patient presenting with asymptomatic mottled brownish plaque on both sides of her neck for 1 month prior to the visit. Patient history revealed that she had used a home skincare device for skin rejuvenation and relaxation. The clinicopathological features suggested a diagnosis of EAI. To our knowledge, there has only been one reported case of EAI on the neck related to a thermal pillow, and this was the first case of EAI related to the self-skincare devices. Herein, we report a rare case of EAI presenting on both sides of the neck due to the use of a modern home skincare device.
