Physician Coalition Responds To Growing Concerns In Injectable Safety

(press release from ASAPS)

The Physicians Coalition for Injectable Safety announced today the launch of a public awareness campaign on the safe use of injectable therapies. The Physicians Coalition for Injectable Safety is an alliance of physician organizations including the American Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons, American Academy of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, and the American Society for Dermatologic Surgery. The Coalition was formed to raise awareness of the appropriate use and setting for receiving injectable therapies. Information on the injectable therapies and the Coalition can be found at www.injectablesafety.org

"The specialties that have pioneered and advanced cosmetic treatment with injectables have come together as a group in support of the value that cosmetic injectable treatments provide patients, but we are concerned that troubling reports and requests for help from patients hurt by counterfeit or so-called 'off-shore' injectables or by untrained injectors are growing," said Mark L. Jewell, MD, Chair of the Coalition and past president of the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS).

According to ASAPS' 2006 statistics, last year 5.7 million injectable procedures were performed for cosmetic purposes. Treatments are U.S. FDA approved products designed to treat facial wrinkles, improve the signs of aging, enhance facial appearance and treat skin imperfections. Consumers are encouraged to choose a board certified physician who regularly performs cosmetic procedures of the face and skin (plastic surgeon, dermatologist, facial plastic surgeon or ophthalmic plastic surgeon) and who uses FDA approved injectables.

"Despite the perception these are non-invasive treatments, these injections are medical procedures that should only be administered in a medical setting. Patients should have confidence the person prescribing and performing the injection has the appropriate training and the product is genuine," said Alastair Carruthers, FRCPC president of the American Society for Dermatologic Surgery.

The Physicians Coalition for Injectable Safety has launched www.injectablesafety.org, a web resource about U.S. FDA approved injectables, how to choose a qualified provider and the benefits and risks of injectable therapies. The web site was written by board certified physicians to provide consumers with objective and factual information about injectable cosmetic enhancement. Support for the Coalition and its initiatives including www.injectablesafety.org has been provided in part by unrestricted educational grants from Allergan, Artes Medical, BioForm Medical, and Medicis.
