Due to their effectiveness and safety, aesthetic procedures with dermal fillers have become increasingly popular. The recommendations set forth in this document represent the opinion of panel experts based on their clinical experience, as well as published data on dermal filler complications in aesthetic procedures. This document seeks to establish a set of recommendations and identify key issues that may be useful for physicians who are starting to use dermal fillers.

Any procedure that breaks the surface of the skin carries a risk of infection, and injecting dermal fillers is no exception. The purpose of this expert consensus report is to describe potential adverse events associated with dermal fillers and to provide guidance on their treatment and avoidance.
