Abstract

We used Aquamid as a filler for facial augmentation and rejuvenation in Orientals. This article introduces the injection techniques, effects, adequate dosage and complications of this filler, especially about rejuvenation of nasolabial fold and nasojugal groove. From December 2002 to June 2007, 5676 patients were treated in our clinic group. Complications were relatively minimal (0.082%) in comparison to other fillers and long-term effects were revealed. This is the first report concerning Aquamid use in facial rejuvenation of the Orientals.
