Plastic Surgery News: New Mixture and Topical Botox Both Fight Wrinkles

The FDA recently approved an injection mixing procedure that we have found works great. A method of mixing a wrinkle-fighting injection, Radiesse, with local anesthetic, lidocaine, has produced in clinical trials, and in our office at the Sanctuary Medical Aesthetic Center, patients that are more satisfied with their results, and feel more comfortable with their procedure overall. In our practice, we have found that a combination therapy of this mixing technique and topical treatments is most effective for patients.

A new product by Revance Therapeutics, Inc., Rt001, is currently doing very well in clinical trials. The product, which is basically a topical form of Botox, is being shown to effectively treat crow's feet wrinkles. Patients who have been treated in trials thus far have been satisfied with the results, and report it to be a safe and pain-free procedure.
