The market for facial filler and cosmetic injectables is one of the most competitive in the world of plastic and cosmetic surgery. So it is not surprising that each product is constantly trying to improve – a bonus for the patients and doctors that use them. Most recently, popular facial fillers including Juvederm®, Restylane®, and Perlane®, are now FDA approved for use with lidocaine. Lidocaine is a local anesthetic, which will gently numb the injection site, making the procedure much more comfortable for the patient. Facial fillers are effective for smoothing out deep folds and facial wrinkles, plumping up lips, and correcting scars and depressions; and now that these products can be used with lidocaine, the procedure is easier than ever!
Also new in the world of injectables is the Dysport® “Love it or Leave it” challenge. Patients can receive a $75 rebate if they try Dysport® – then after 15-30 days, if they love it, they can receive another $75 off their next Dysport® injection. Or they decide to leave it, patients can still receive a $75 rebate off a competitive treatment (Botox®).
