Review of Latest Thinking in Facial Rejuvenation with Fillers & Resurfacing: Dr Barry Lycka & Dr Amy Taub

Facial rejuvenation techniques and products have developed a great deal over the last twenty five years or so. Injectable facial fillers have developed from the early collagen which caused allergic reactions and didn't last very long to the wide range of fillers available today which are available in different formulations, and which can last from months to years. The same developments have also been made with lasers and their use for laser re-surfacing. Both fillers and resurfacing can now be combined to provide the 'liquid facelift', and to improve the appearance of the skin – to 'lighten, tighten and brighten, as well as provide a natural looking subtle lift. This week on Inside Cosmetic Surgery Today on, show host, Edmonton Cosmetic Dermatologist Dr Barry Lycka welcomes board certified dermatologist Dr Amy Taub, from her practice in the suburbs of Chicago, Illinois. Dr Taub is a leading expert on the use of fillers and laser resurfacing for facial rejuvenation.
