This year, many publications have focused on understanding, avoiding and treating vascular complications when injecting fillers. New protocols for the use of hyaluronidase have shown their effectiveness in preventing skin necrosis or blindness after vascular embolism when injecting hyaluronic acid. Other areas of interventional dermatology have been well documented: myomodulation is an interesting concept that describes the impact of the injection depth of a filler on muscle forces in order to correct the balances between the lowering and elevators during congenital or acquired defcits with aging. Treatment of melasma remains diffcult but the prescription of oral tranexamic acid could be useful. Botulinum toxin is expanding its feld of activity for both aesthetic and medical treatments. Pulsed dye laser remains the reference treatment for port wine stains, but the rate of recurrence by post laser neo-angiogenesis justifes the need of reliable and effective adjuvant treatments.
