Hyaluronic acid filler treatment for mid-face volume lasted up to 2 years

  • April 26, 2014

Hyaluronic acid filler treatment effectively corrected loss of volume in the mid-face for up to 2 years, according to research presented at The Aesthetic Meeting in San Francisco.

“Most patients undergoing mid-face volume injections of hyaluronic acid understand that the results they see from treatment will be temporary and sustaining improvement will require a return visit. The question is always ‘How soon?’” researcher Jeffrey M. Kenkel, MD, FACS, professor and vice chair of plastic surgery at the University of Texas Southwestern in Dallas, said in a press release from the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery annual meeting. “The results from this study will now help physicians better prepare their patients and more accurately plan their next treatment visit.”
