Description:
Most of the fillers used in the United States have been approved many years ago worldwide. Some such agents will be made available soon after passing through FDA's stringent criteria.

This will provide great knowledge in knowing what to expect and the pitfalls that these agents might have. In addition, the many indications of such fillers will be discussed.
