Abstract

As the development of new technologies and treatment approaches continue to expand the field of cosmetic surgery, dermal filler injections have become increasingly popular, minimally invasive means of improving aesthetic appearance. New filler materials have improved the ease of use with longer-lasting results as well as minimal adverse effects (AEs) and downtime. The aging lower face features characteristic changes that are particularly amenable to treatment with fillers. In this article, we discuss techniques used for successful lip augmentation as well as rejuvenation of the lower face through correction of the perioral rhytides, marionette lines, and prejowl sulci with frequently used dermal fillers. Although most dermal fillers are approved by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for treatment of lines and wrinkles only, we encourage a more natural approach using global assessment of facial aging to develop an individualized approach to volume restoration and rejuvenation.
