Plastic surgeons have been suggested by researchers to concentrate more on the six danger zones starting from the forehead down to the chin. These six areas are commonly addressed by facial filler injection to enhance safety and effectiveness of treatment.

Dermal fillers have become a popular alternative to surgery for patients who want a younger facial appearance as the injection of soft tissue dermal fillers can reduce facial lines, wrinkles and restore a fuller, younger-looking facial appearance.

The study explained techniques to minimize risk and maximize safety when using dermal fillers in specific areas of the face.

"Given current trends, it becomes even more important that plastic surgeons, dermatologists, oculoplastic surgeons and facial plastic surgeons learn safe, predictable techniques to achieve optimal results with facial filler injections," said Rod J. Rohrich, MD from the Dallas Plastic Surgery Institute in the US.

Stating that the practitioners should be able to recognise complications, Dr. Rohrich said, "They should pay particular attention to the six danger zones from the forehead to the chin, areas commonly addressed by facial filler injection."

Providing immediate results with a short recovery time, dermal filler injection has become the second-most popular nonsurgical cosmetic procedure. When performed by a board certified or experienced practitioner then facial filler injection is a safe procedure.

Dr. Rohrich outlined his approach to specific principles for safe filler injection, including the use of hyaluronic acid fillers when possible.

The major advantage of these products is that their effects can be rapidly reversed by rescue injection with the enzyme hyaluronidase.

Other principles for safe filler injection include the use of continuous motion and gentle injection techniques.

He explains the steps to protect the underlying blood vessels, while discussing the filler products and injection techniques to achieving the best results in each area. The study appeared in Journal of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery.
