Most of the signs of ageing can be related to volume loss. Dermal fillers are substances which can be injected beneath the skin, that helps restore the lost volume. They are gel like in consistency.1 Patients seeking orthodontic therapy often also present with adjuvant soft tissue deformities. The soft tissue deformity caused by an underlying skeletal or dental deformity will be self-corrected by orthognathic and/or orthodontic treatment. The inherent soft tissue deformities like decreased lip length, increased or decreased lip thickness, inadequate vermillion show, can be addressed by injecting dermal fillers, Botulinum Toxin A and cosmetic surgical soft tissue procedures.
