Salti G, Rauso R - J Cutan Aesthet Surg (2015 Jul-Sep)

Bottom Line: The average total amount of products used has been 12 ml per patient with an average amount per session of 3.75 ml.The dual plane technique is an injection technique based on anatomical logics.Different types of products can be used according to the plane of injection and their rheology in order to obtain a natural result and few side effects.

ABSTRACT

Background: Facial aging is characterized by skin changes, sagging and volume loss. Volume is frequently addressed with reabsorbable fillers like hyaluronic acid gels.

Materials and methods: From an anatomical point of view, the deep and superficial fat compartments evolve differently with aging in a rather predictable manner. Volume can therefore be restored following a technique based on restoring first the deep volumes and there after the superficial volumes. We called this strategy "dual plane". A series of 147 consecutive patients have been treated with fillers using the dual plane technique in the last five years.

Results: An average of 4.25 session per patient has been carried out for a total of 625 treatment sessions. The average total amount of products used has been 12 ml per patient with an average amount per session of 3.75 ml. We had few and limited adverse events with this technique.

Conclusion: The dual plane technique is an injection technique based on anatomical logics. Different types of products can be used according to the plane of injection and their rheology in order to obtain a natural result and few side effects.

Figure 10: Before and after

Mentions: The majority of the patients in this series (124) are regularly seen for follow-up treatment once or twice in 1 year [Figure 10]. The majority of them also received synergistic treatments (121 botulinum toxin therapy, 77 retinoid-based home skin care, 43 suspension threads, and 13 fractionated CO2 laser resurfacing).
