Human facial aging is a gradual and ongoing process involving various factors including photodamage, skin laxity, volume loss of subcutaneous tissue, and bony resorption.

As the aging US population is growing, minimally invasive strategies have become the primary treatment modalities for addressing mild to moderate age-related facial changes. The introduction of microfocused ultrasound (MFU) represents a method to produce a deeper wound healing response with increased collagen remodeling and more durable clinical response. MFU-V treatment protocols continue to be refined and use in combination with other minimally invasive strategies including injectable dermal fillers such as diluted calcium hydroxylapatite for skin laxity and appearance of lines in the neck and décolletage has been studied.

Need exists for expanded understanding of dermatology providers on the application of microfocused ultrasound in combination with injectable dermal fillers as a treatment approach for lifting skin on the neck and face and for improving lines and wrinkles on the chest

"Re-examining the Optimal Use of Neuromodulators and the Changing Landscape: A Consensus Panel Update"

Since initial US Food and Drug Administration approval of botulinum toxin type A (BoNT-A) for aesthetic use in 2002, clinical evidence and experience with BoNT-A and understanding of facial anatomy have greatly increased, leading to rapid advances in treatment plan-ning and implementation.

BoNT-A use has expanded from the upper face to the midface, lower face, and neck, so that BoNT-A injection is the most common cosmetic procedure worldwide. Trends in facial aesthetics reflect growing patient diversity with respect to age, gender, and ethnicity. In October 2019, a multidisciplinary panel of 6 experts in minimally invasive injectable procedures in the special-ties of dermatology and plastic surgery convened at the 2019 American Society for Dermatologic Surgery (ASDS) meeting in Chicago, IL. Their goal was to discuss recent advances in BoNT-A use in facial aesthetics, including implications of the introduction of new agents in light of an evolving patient population.
