Abstract
Part I of this two-part supplement brings together experts from the U.S., Europe, Canada, and Israel to discuss the state-of-the-art in soft tissue fillers in a fair-balanced, CME-accredited format. It includes a roundtable discussion on hyaluronic acid (HA) fillers that charts the clinical and scientific path that has led dermatologists from wrinkle-chasing to true volumetry. International case vignettes with commentary highlight a variety of applications for fillers'some currently available in the U.S., and some available elsewhere and on the American horizon. Topics covered include single-product and multi-product volumetry, anatomic and safety considerations, and the use of blunt injection microcannulas. Quick poll surveys provide an engaging snapshot of the faculty's personal approaches, with the first three surveys focusing on the palette of HA fillers.
