SKIN INJURIES

Liquid silicone injection granulomas

 

Liquid silicone, despite being prohibited as a filler, continues to be used and we continue to see the serious effects it produces on the physical and emotional health of patients treated with this product.

Clinical picture

Liquid silicone has been considered an inert material for the body, which is absolutely wrong. This component produces large inflammatory processes of varying intensities, which ends in severe damage to the underlying tissues.

The damage that silicone produces in the tissues is clinically manifested by redness, change in temperature, change in skin color and granulomas.

Liquid silicone is a product that migrates, that is, if it is placed on the buttocks, over time it will lodge in the sub-gluteal grooves, producing aesthetic deformities in this area. When placed on the lips, it produces an increase in the overall volume of the lips and after a while it lodges in the lower part, giving an unnatural appearance.

Correcting these deformities represents a challenge for the treating professional and what was performed at one time as a simple and harmless procedure aimed at beautifying, ends up resulting in amputation surgery of anatomical structures.

For years we have treated hundreds of patients who have come looking for a solution. The therapies used have been very varied, according to the existing problem and the affected area.

Treatment

The following are some of the treatments we carry out in Hoogstra Medical Centers.

1) Cutaneous Micro perforations with Lotus Laser.

No anesthesia of any kind is used, it is painless and produces immediate and definitive relief from symptoms and signs.
It consists of making a micro perforation of 1 to 2 mm through which the liquid silicone drains, on the second or third day the micro perforation closes on its own and there are no traces of the treatment.
It is indicated in recent granulomas in which there is still no great inflammatory process and fibrosis.
When we achieve the spontaneous drainage of the silicone we can say that we achieve a total and definitive cure.

2) Fox 980 nm laser and aspiration with Micro cannulas.

When all the tissue is affected, when silicone infiltrates vast areas, one of the resources we use is the introduction of a 1 mm laser fiber. Thus we seek to internally dissolve the capsules and aspirate the silicone with micro cannulas.

3) Reconstructive-Aesthetic Surgery.

They are intended to improve the aesthetics of the anatomical areas where silicone is found: Lips, glutes, eyelids and breasts, are the most treated anatomical areas.

4) Scarlet, Radiofrequency with Micro needles.

This innovative system is used to externally dissolve micro granulomas that we could not treat with the Lotus Laser.

5) Immunosuppressants and steroids.

They are also used in special situations and with great caution due to the side effects they can cause.

If you. you have granulomas from the injection of Liquid Silicone or Polymethylmethacrylate and you want to be treated in our Centers, you have to take an appointment with Dr. Ricardo Hoogstra.

Botryomicoma

 

It is a small reddish bump on the skin that bleeds easily due to an abnormally high number of blood vessels.

Clinical Picture

The granuloma appears frequently after injury. Clinically, they present as a small red vascular bump that bleeds easily.

It often occurs at the site of a recent injury. It is most often seen on the hands, arms, and face. Most pyogenic granulomas can be removed, but scarring may occur after treatment.There is a good chance that the condition will come back if the entire granuloma has not been destroyed during treatment.

Treatment

At the Hoogstra Medical Centers we treat granulomas with a 980 nm diode vascular laser, without resection, without scars and the patient can immediately resume their activity.

Botryomicoma is also known by these names that refer to its rich vascular composition:
- Pyogenic granuloma.
- Raspberry tumor.
- Capillary hemangioma.

Angiomas

 

Angioma or Hemangioma is an abnormal accumulation of blood vessels in the skin or internal organs.

Clinical picture

Un hemangioma es una marca de nacimiento de color rojo intenso que aparece al nacer o en la primera o segunda semana de vida. Parece una protuberancia gomosa y está compuesta por vasos sanguíneos adicionales en la piel.

About 1 in 3 hemangiomas is present at birth and the rest appear in the first months of life.
The hemangioma can:
• Being in the upper layers of the skin (capillary hemangioma).
• Being deep in the skin (cavernous hemangioma).
• Be a mixture of both.

Treatment

The most effective treatment today is laser, the most widely used are the Nd Yag 1064 long pulse and Diode 980 nm.
For superficial red angiomas, the 532 nm laser is very effective.

The number of sessions will be related to the type of vascular injury and the laser selected for said treatment.

Entre las alternativas existentes podemos destacar:

  • The To be (de colorante pulsado, de KTP, de Nd-YAG …) pueden ser útiles en las fases iniciales de lesiones superficiales y en la porción superficial de un hemangioma profundo. También están indicados en los hemangiomas ulcerados de determinadas localizaciones. Tienen la limitación de la profundidad, ya que ninguno de ellos alcanza más allá de 2-3 mm.
  • The surgery está indicada, tan pronto como sea posible, en algunos hemangiomas nasales. Así se evita el desplazamiento y destrucción de los cartílagos y se favorece el desarrollo normal de la nariz.
  • The corticosteroids, en inyección intralesional o generalmente por vía oral (dosis de 3-4 mg./kg./día), están indicados en la fase de crecimiento tardío de los hemangiomas muy desfigurantes, con compromiso vital (obstrucción vía aérea) o secuelas visuales (ceguera). En pocos días se comprueba su eficacia, y se deben mantener varias semanas. Bajo control por un especialista y con la ayuda de otros fármacos, se reducen los efectos secundarios de esta medicación, que son pasajeros.
  • He interferon se limita a aquellos casos en los que no hay respuesta a los corticosteroides, ya que presenta una mayor toxicidad (parálisis espástica).
