New Study Supports Anti-Aging Solutions
As a part of his commitment to disseminate useful information to patients at his med spa about the safety and effectiveness of various non-surgical procedures, Dr. Farah has highlighted the results of a new study published in the respected journal JAMA Dermatology. The study has suggested that anti-aging procedures such as Botox, dermal fillers and laser skin resurfacing treatments produce highly safe results with a very low incidence of side effects.
However, the study suggests that the procedures must be performed by properly qualified and experienced medical professional or skin care expert to achieve safe outcomes. According to the results of the study, less than one percent of the patients will experience minor side effects such as bruising, skin discoloration, or lumpiness with such procedures.

Observations of Lead Authors
Dr. Murad Alam, a dermatologist at the Northwestern University in Illinois, who is the lead author of the study, and has earlier conducted studies backed by eminent companies such as Allergan and Ulthera, said: "We strongly suspected the rates were going to be low, but we were pleasantly surprised that they were as low as they were.”
Dr. Michael Edwards, the president of the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS), however, pointed out that the study covered only reputed treatment providers who regular perform such anti-aging non-surgical treatments. The chances of undesirable results may increase when the procedures are carried out by providers with lesser experience and expertise.
The study involved 23 skin care experts across the US to track data regarding key cosmetic procedures they performed over a three month period, including any adverse events reported by patients over the next 12 months. The team reviewed 20,399 procedures in total.
Only one in every 416 procedures resulted in a negative impact such as bruising, lumpiness or swelling in the treated area. Side effects in a procedure such as Botox were as low as just one in 3,333 cases. In case of Juvederm filler, beading or lumpiness occurred in one in 135 cases.
