Hyaluronic acid (H.A.) filler injections have been associated with early, temporary, and delayed-onset onset complications. High-resolution ultrasound (HRUS) with Doppler analysis has been increasingly used to detect and identify such complications. We describe comprehensively the most common ultrasonographic findings of non-vascular complications associated with H.A. filler injections. This retrospective, cross-sectional observational study was conducted at a reference center for dermatologic ultrasound in Bogotá, Colombia. Ultrasound reports documented the ultrasonographic findings of non-vascular complications of H.A. filler injections. Fifty-two complications were documented in a cohort of 50 patients (women, 88%). The infraorbital region was the most common site affected (23%), followed by the nasolabial (22%). The Tyndall effect was the most common complication (25% of all), followed by changes in rheology (21%) and pseudo-sarcoidal (foreign body granuloma) reaction (15%). The Tyndall effect stood out for its distinctive ultrasonographic characteristics. We discuss the ultrasonographic findings and pathogenesis of other complications, including filler migration, early hypersensitivity, aseptic abscess, overcorrection, and filler material interaction. The clinical presentation of H.A. filler complications can be confusing, delaying timely diagnosis and treatment. HRUS with Doppler analysis is a valuable tool for avoiding unnecessary treatments and ensuring timely diagnosis and treatment. read more

Educational Strategies to Combat Harmful Cosmetic Dermatology Trends in Generations Alpha and Z.

May, 2024

This article argues in favor of implementing comprehensive educational strategies to combat the harmful effects of social media (SM) on body image and self-perception among generations Alpha and Z. These generations are often exposed to unattainable beauty standards that can lead to distorted self-perceptions and body image disorders such as Zoom dysmorphia. To address this issue, we propose embedding health education, critical media literacy, and active parental involvement in educational curricula. The goal is to help young individuals develop the skills necessary to critically evaluate and navigate the pressures of SM. We believe that incorporating health education, critical media literacy, and active parental engagement into school programs is urgently needed to counteract the adverse effects of SM on body image and self-perception. These initiatives will equip young people with the necessary tools to evaluate SM content critically, navigate SM influences more safely and effectively, and develop a more resilient and informed perspective. This proactive educational approach is vital for improving mental health outcomes and mitigating the psychological impacts of digital media. Ultimately, we hope that this comprehensive strategy will help future generations face SM pressures with confidence and critical awareness. read more
