Abstract

The perioral region undergoes significant changes during aging that can contribute to a static, “sad” or “displeased” expression. The most notable alterations usually involve ptosis of the oral commissures and the appearance of marionette lines and vertical rhytides. Revolumization of facial structures in this region with hyaluronic acid dermal fillers can significantly reduce signs of aging. The choice of injection technique depends on factors such as the specific perioral area, extent of correction and facial anatomy. This guide to injection techniques in the perioral region provides practical approaches to revolumization of this region, along with tips for obtaining optimal results and patient satisfaction.
