Treatment with injectable fillers, botulinumtoxin A and lasers as well as chemical peelings are the corner stones of aesthetic dermatology. Unwanted or adverse events after these interventions are most unwelcome and should be avoided as best as possible. When treating with injectable fillers some basic rules apply – not only for less or unexperienced but also for the more experienced medical doctors. What are these rules? The selection (1) of the right filler by the level of evidence, (2) of the right patient, (3) of the right indication and (4) of the injectable filler that is most suitable for this indication. Two other important points are (5) the skills of the treating physician and if something happens (6) the right management of adverse events. Following these rules should help to secure happy patients and treating physicians.
