It is mandatory for doctors who use dermal fillers to dominate the injection technique and to know the product characteristics as well as the possible side effects that can derive from the procedure. Indications on fillers given in this paper, based on the authors´ experience, do not prevent the use of other aesthetic treatments; moreover, a solid formation and a deep knowledge of the different adjunctive techniques that can be used are the key to achieve an aesthetic rejuvenation of the treated areas and, consequently, attain patients´ satisfaction. Most of the incidents or side effects that can appear with the use of dermal fillers are mild and brief. Erythema, edema, ecchymosis and/or haematomas are the most common ones. However, other effects such as cutaneous reaction to the product, granuloma formation and/or necrosis are more serious complications. Treatment in all of these cases should follow the basic medical knowledge principles in accordance to the complication diagnosed as well as to the recommendations given in related expert medical literature. The increased demand of treatments with fillers should not imply an increase in adverse effects if indications and correct use of the different available materials are taken into account.
