Emaciation in the face, neck and hands.
Conditions Requiring Treatment
Time of Application
- Accurate requirements cannot be predetermined.
- An area of low resisitance to the arterial injection is created.
No Performed During Arterial Injection Because:
Replace moisture in the tissues and eliminate most signs of emaciation.
May be added to the embalming chemical as an internal tissue builder.
Humectant (Mositening) Fluid
This is the major fault (danger) of hypodermic tissue building.
Danger of Overfilling
Be aware that:
- An overinjection of one side will lead to a compensating injection on the other side.
- Trying to balance the two sides in this manner may produce a distortion of the normal surface contour.
- Always Inject tissue builder in small quantities
- You can always inject again using the same point of entry
Whenever Filling Similar Structures on Opposite Sides of The Face
Will lead to a compensating injection on the other side.
An Overinjection on One Side
Trying to balance the two sides may produce a distortion of the ____ _____ _____.
Normal Surface Contour
Always inject tissue builder in small quantities, _______ your need.
Remember, you can always inject again using:
The Same Point of Entry
- Massage Cream
- Mortuary Suppliers
- A liquid Colloid (plus its solvent)
Types of Tissue Fillers
Mix a small amount of mineral oil if it is too "thick."
Also make available special creams for this purpose.
- Available from mortuary suppliers
- Becomes gelatinous in form when the chemical associates iwth tissue moisture.
- For this reason, use only solvent to clean equipment.
Liquid Colloid (Plust Its Solvent)
Enter the needle through the skin and direct to the most ______ point of the area to be filled.
The depth of the needle is kept as close to the _____ as possible.
The free hand is placed on the skin surface to estimate the depth of the needle.
The Avoid Puncturing The Skin
Before Injecting, once the needle is fully inserted under the skin, withdraw it 1/8" to remove any subcutaneous tissue which may be blocking the tip.
Slowly withdraw the needle to the ____ __ ____ as the filler is injected.
- Without removing the needle- radiate it through the area until it is properly filled.
Point of Entry
Apply external pressure with your fingers.
To Dissipate Any Surface Lumps.
Remove the needle from the ______.
May be pressed out of the needle puncture before it has "set."
Dehydration will create brown holes.
Wax Any Needle Holes
- Hair Regions
- Corners of the mouth
- Receded parts of the ears
- The posterior margin of the angle of the jaw.
