Cosmetic procedures to reduce the signs of aging have been increasing. Traditionally, facial rejuvenation has focused on tightening skin through surgical resection and resurfacing. In recent years, however, a major shift in facial rejuvenation has occurred, with increasing emphasis on minimally invasive cosmetic improvement. Facial fillers can be grouped according to their longevity or degree of permanence after injection such as permanent and non-permanent. The authors discuss the various fillers, injection techniques, and possible complications.
