For decades, doctors have known that silicone injections can permanently plump fine lines, eliminate wrinkles, and restore the fullness of the face taken away by aging. But the popularity of these cosmetic treatments has been declining and declining for years. Now some dermatologists and plastic surgeons have reported that there is an increasing interest in injecting silicone, especially in HIV- The infected person tries to erase the gaunt, empty appearance already known as the \"face of AIDS. \"It is not clear whether the decrease in facial fat, that is, fat atrophy, is caused by HIV infection or by drugs used to stop it. The patient said these different facial changes- Depression of cheeks and bone temples- Even if many people live longer and are relatively healthy, they will suffer a painful shame. Doctors who treat HIV Infected men, women, and other patients seeking permanent fillers for wrinkles, wrinkles or scars say today\'s silicone is cleaner, technically safer, and works better than in the past. If the federal regulator approves the new liquid silicone developed for the face, the demand for cosmetic silicone treatment may grow. However, the process was criticized. They warn that while silicone injections tend to bring impressive results in the first place, a few years later some people will have ugly lumps and lumps. Long before the silicone breast augmentation, Las Vegas was filled with silicone in 1950 and 1960 seconds --- Launched in 1962--became popular. In Las Vegas and Hollywood, many performers had silicone injections on their faces and bodies, and a few years later, disfigured the faces and bodies of some actors. Although there are still risks, many HIV Infected people are looking for a way to improve the look they seem to be older and worse off than they actually are. Peter Anderson, 54year- An old nurse in Los Angeles has been infected with HIV for at least 17 years. His virus is good. Controlled by drugs, he never had any aids Related Diseases However, about five years ago, he began to notice a significant decrease in fat in his arms, legs and face. Anderson no longer wears shorts, and his veins and muscles show calm when fat melts from his arm. But he could not hide the obvious emptiness that he thought made his face look much older. \"If I walk down the street, I don\'t want someone to look at me and say, \'he\'s HIV- Anderson said he was treated with silicone for six months. \"I am more than willing to tell anyone about my HIV status. . . But I don\'t want them to make that assumption. \"Anderson accepted the unknown of silicone, just as he was at the risk of taking the HIV drug. He discussed these risks and benefits in his work at Beverly Hills Pacific Oak Medical Group, a large private AIDS clinic where he coordinated silicone treatment for dozens of patients. However, some doctors say the risk may be too high, noting that experts are not sure exactly how silicone reacts in the body for decades. Dr. Beverly Hills dermatologist Marvin Laporte has seen a lot of silicone Related complications are called liquid silica gel \"time bomb\" because problems develop even after 25 years of treatment. In 1996, Rapaport released a report on 54 cases of issues. The silica gel produces lumps, infections, and inflammation. It settled down at jowls. Attempts to remove silicone by surgery often make the appearance of the patient worse. Then he saw 15 more cases. Rapaport believes that some doctors are too careless about this operation, which is almost always very effective --- At least in the short term. The problem, he said, is that \"the real incidence of side effects is unknown . \". It\'s no surprise that doctors who regularly perform silicone treatments, including the pioneers of facial silicone injections Norman o\'trich and his son. David S. This concern is unfounded, Orentreich said. \"People who use good technology, good judgment and good materials will get good results,\" said Manhattan dermatologist David otterridge . \" He trained other doctors in silicone use. Some doctors estimate that about 1% of patients treated with silicone will have poor results, although no clear study of the subject has yet been made. Orentreich said complications occur when doctors use unsterilized and filtered silica gel to remove heavy metals and other impurities that are easily contaminated during manufacturing. He says this can also happen when a doctor is overinjected at a time, or when the silicone is not injected at that time. Orentreichs in favor of continuous puncture techniques, in which silicone Microdroplets ( Each is about the size of a steamed milk) Injections are given once a month for several months. David orentriich says the technology gives the body time to peel the silicone off with a collagen shell. Repeated treatment can rebuild what is lost due to age or illness. Orentreich estimates that he has injected thousands of patients and about 50 people living with HIV due to cosmetic surgery Related facial wasteDr. Derek H. Los Angeles dermatologist Jones estimates he has treated more than 200 men and three women with HIV In the past year and a half, the associated fat shrank. It usually takes 6 to 10 treatments, about $700 each time, which can make the total bill up to $7,000. Most health insurance plans do not include injection costs. Jones started offering silicone after seeing HIV patients spend thousands of dollars on collagen injections that have to be repeated every few months or get silicone injections from unlicensed doctors in the United StatesS. or Mexico. He believes that some people who go to Mexico for treatment that may not be effective may put themselves at a \"huge risk \". The FDA will soon decide whether the injection of silicone is indeed safe and effective. Richard-James Inc. A medical implant developer in Mass. In 2001, FDA permission was obtained to test its highly purified Silskin silicone for the treatment of cosmetic and facial waste. Silicone injection has a history. Although Dow Corning, which makes silicone breast augmentation, has manufactured liquid silicone, which has been widely used since the 1960 s, liquid silicone has never been approved for any facial or cosmetic purposes. Also, until a few years ago, liquid silicone was illegal outside of clinical research, says Harold Pellett of the FDA\'s equipment and Radiation Health Center. In the 1990 s, the FDA began tracking doctors who illegally injected silicone, including Orentreichs. The result of the survey was that those doctors stopped doing so. Then, in 1996, a change in federal law allowed doctors to use any legally sold drug or equipment for whatever purpose they thought was necessary. FDA approved Richard- James Silikon 1000 treated the complex Retina Unit on September 1997, the doctor finally got the approval to inject silicone products. This re-opens the door for silicone as a facial filler. Richard- James sold Silikon 1000 to Alcon Labs in 1998 and then began to focus on bringing Silskin to the market for facial care.
