The periorbital region is at the pinnacle of conferring youth and vitality to the face. Facial lines, furrows, and hollows can signify fatigue and aging, while smooth skin and convexities convey a cherubic, youthful impression. Surgical rejuvenation of the periorbital region continues to play a large role in achieving the latter. However, in patients with hyperfunctional lines and tear trough or other contour deformities, neurodmodulators and injectable soft-tissue fillers play a substantial, growing role in their treatment. With the advent of newer technology, the armamentarium of products available to cosmetic surgeons continues to expand. Keeping abreast of these products, their indications and nuances are paramount to achieving a safe and successful result.
