Philadelphia-Area Plastic Surgeon Dr. Timothy Greco Presents on an International Scale

9 May 2019

PHILADELPHIA, May 08, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Drawing from his years of experience with BOTOX® at his Philadelphia-area practice, as well as his work with other injectable neurotoxins used as cosmetic treatments, Dr. Timothy Greco of Bala Cynwyd started 2019 by speaking to an international group of physicians, scientists, and more at a conference in Copenhagen, Denmark. His visit furthered his already considerable reputation in the field of facial cosmetic surgery and complementary nonsurgical treatments.

Dubbed TOXIN 2019, the meeting—an annual event organized by the International Neurotoxin Association—featured presentations such as Dr. Greco’s, as well as clinical workshops, live demonstrations, and more Jan. 16 to 19. Previous events drew more than 1,000 attendees from more than 50 countries around the world.

Dr. Greco’s presentation was titled “Toxins Only—Nonsurgical Facial Rejuvenation—Advanced Techniques with Neuromodulators.” During his talk, he highlighted the difference between static and dynamic lines, as well as explained conditions commonly addressed by Botulinum toxin therapy. Injectables available in the United States include BOTOX®—the most commonly administered cosmetic treatment across the world each year—as well as Dysport® and Xeomin®. The three brands are all derived from the same bacterium, but each has unique dosing and attributes. They are not interchangeable.

“A new neuromodulator is on the horizon with a six-month lifespan. During my trip to Denmark, I was impressed by the products that I hope to one day use in my practice,” Dr. Greco said. “Neuromodulators like BOTOX® are becoming more mainstream, affordable, and used to treat more than just wrinkles. In a few years, we could see a standard of an increased dosage, with a decreased volume to help the duration of the product’s effectiveness while avoiding adverse side effects. It is something that shows great promise in the treatment of hyperfunctional rhytid.”

Dr. Greco also shared techniques for elevating the brow with BOTOX®, as well as reducing the appearance of frown lines and crow’s feet, “bunny lines” on the nose, perioral lines around the mouth, nasal tip depressions, nasal flaring, platysmal bands, and more. Images he presented revealed neurotoxins’ role in preventing an excess of gum showing when someone smiles, addressing excessive chin dimpling, altering the shape of the jaw, and correcting asymmetrical features.

Neurotoxins can also be used to curb excessive sweating—a condition technically known as hyperhidrosis.

Dr. Greco is certified by both the American Board of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery and the American Board of Otolaryngology—Head and Neck Surgery. He is the author of multiple facial plastic surgery papers and is a trainer with the Palette Education Faculty, working with physicians and nurse injectors to teach injection techniques that maximize cosmetic results and safety.
