ABSTRACT

Soft-tissue augmentation with hyaluronic acid and calcium hydroxyl apatite are among the most widely used minimally invasive cosmetic treatments for the correction of contour deficiencies and wrinkles of the face without the risk, recovery time, and expense of a major surgery. Training and experience in the art and science of fillers is essential for the successful creation of a more youthful and natural appearance. An understanding of the different products, the injection techniques, the indications, and the potential complications of each filler are paramount to success.
