Aspen, Colo. — At the most recent Cosmetic Bootcamp (CBC), attendees learned effective strategies for combining neuromodulators and energy-based treatments.
Despite the efficacy of energy-based devices and submental injectable treatments for their approved indications, said Vic Narurkar, M.D., these treatments cannot fix brow depression or dynamic rhytids. Similarly, treating submental fat with deoxycholate sometimes produces exaggeration of the platysmal bands. Botulinum toxin can address these dynamic rhytids to enhance the results of other modalities, he said.
In the perioral area, many female patients complain of smokers’ lines. But it’s impossible to ameliorate them with one approach, said Dr. Narurkar, because the typical patient requires resurfacing, neuromodulators and fillers. He is founder and director of the Bay Area Laser Institute, chairman of dermatology at California Pacific Medical Center, San Francisco, and a CBC cofounder and director.
