By Wendy Lewis
Dermal fillers have become a popular tool to address contour defects that are the inevitable result of aging. The effectiveness, low morbidity and predictable, reproducible results of these treatments have made dermal fillers the bread and butter of most cosmetic practices.
Additionally, “We now have a range of dermal fillers that are useful to fill an isolated wrinkle, and fillers that can be injected into multiple tissue planes to create a change in facial shape and restore volume,” says New York City-based plastic surgeon Bryan G. Forley, MD, FACS.
