Study Reveals That Hyaluronic Acid Filler Can Effectively Correct Loss Of Volume In The Mid-Face For Up To Two Years

Duration of Correction is Dependent on Volume of Hyaluronic Acid Injected and Sub-Region Treated

SAN FRANCISCO, April 26, 2014 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Findings from a study on the "Duration of Effect by Injection Volume and Facial Sub-Region for a Volumizing Hyaluronic Acid Filler in Treating Mid-Face Volume Deficit" will be presented by Jeffrey M. Kenkel, MD, professor and vice chair of Plastic Surgery at the University of Texas Southwestern in Dallas, TX, at the Annual Meeting of the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS), being held April 24-29 in San Francisco, CA.

Throughout life, aging shapes the face in common, predictable ways. Skin loses elasticity and facial muscles atrophy, resulting in an undesirable loss of volume. These effects can be especially evident in the mid-face, which includes the undereye and cheek area. Hyaluronic acid is a volumizing, hydrating injectable agent that is often used to fill out the mid-facial region, but the duration of its effects in this area have not previously been rigorously studied. Data from a new study now shows that hyaluronic acid treatment in the mid-face can lead to long-lasting results, with efficacy as long as two years in some regions of the face. Duration of effect was related to the volume of hyaluronic acid used and the facial region being treated.

"Most patients undergoing mid-face volume injections of hyaluronic acid filler understand that the results they see from treatment will be temporary and that sustaining improvement will require a return visit. The question is always 'How soon?'" said Dr. Kenkel. "The results from this study will now help physicians better prepare their patients and more accurately plan their next treatment visit. We now have a more concrete understanding of how to administer these kinds of treatments over time, and a more precise understanding of how to treat each mid-facial region."

The multicenter study involved 15 investigators throughout North America, who enrolled and treated 235 patients with hyaluronic acid filler for loss of volume in the mid-face. Both the treating physician and two additional blinded investigators assessed treatment results using the validated 6-point Mid-Face Volume Deficit Scale (MFVDS). The evaluations showed that hyaluronic acid treatment for age-related mid-face volume deficit was effective in the range of 2 mL injection volume per sub-region. The duration of results ranged from 15-24 months, with the longest duration of results in the anteromedial cheek region.

IoT is at the core or many Digital Transformation initiatives with the goal of re-inventing a company's business model. We all agree that collecting relevant IoT data will result in massive amounts of data needing to be stored. However, with the rapid development of IoT devices and ongoing business model transformation, we are not able to predict the volume and growth of IoT data. And with the lack of IoT history, traditional methods of IT and infrastructure planning based on the past do not app...
To get the most out of their data, successful companies are not focusing on queries and data lakes, they are actively integrating analytics into their operations with a data-first application development approach.

Jack Norris reviews best practices to show how companies develop, deploy, and dynamically update these applications and how this data-first...
In IT, we sometimes coin terms for things before we know exactly what they are and how they’ll be used. The resulting terms may capture a common set of aspirations and goals – as “cloud” did broadly for on-demand, self-service, and flexible computing. But such a term can also lump together diverse and even competing practices, technologies, and priorities to the point where important distinctions are glossed over and lost.

DevOps is under attack because developers don’t want to mess with infrastructure. They will happily own their code into production, but want to use platforms instead of raw automation. That’s changing the landscape that we understand as DevOps with both architecture concepts (CloudNative) and process redefinition (SRE). Rob Hirschfeld’s recent work in Kubernetes operations has led to the conclusion that containers and related platforms have changed the way we should be thinking about DevOps and...
