Aquamid is a non-absorbable injectable filler for aesthetic and reconstructive purposes. It consists of 97.5% water and 2.5% polyacrylamide so it becomes completely integrated with the body's own tissue. The treatment area is numbed with local anesthesia after which the needle is inserted at a 30° angle on the border of the vermilion until reaching the subcutaneous level where the Aquamid is implanted. Gentle pressure is applied while slowly withdrawing the needle without penetrating the muscular level. The filler is used to add volume as well as lessen wrinkles and folds.
