Hyaluronic acid injectable fillers are the most widely used soft tissue fillers to treat facial volume deficits, providing long-term facial aesthetic enhancement outcomes for the signs of aging and/or facial contouring.(1)
Soft tissue fillers are a minimally invasive aesthetic medicine procedure used to improve or create volume, to remodel the contours of the face, and fill in wrinkles and deep folds.
Common areas to inject fillers are in the face, neck, and décolleté, resulting in a fuller, smoother and more youthful appearance. Fillers are among the most popular aesthetic medicine procedures because they carry immediate results, very few risks and little recovery time.(2)
Their main indications are the filling of wrinkles and folds, and the correction of soft tissue loss due to disease or age. Increasingly, fillers are used for volume replacement and enhancement procedures, including cheek and chin augmentation, tear trough correction, nose reshaping, mid-facial volumisation, lip enhancement, neck and décolleté rejuvenation, and the correction of facial asymmetry.
