Anatomy of the face has been studied for ages. However, anatomy of the face as relevant to injection of fillers and toxin is a recent development in applied anatomy. Discovery of fat compartments changed the concept of filling to a volumizing concept. The study of this anatomy brought about a better understanding of the process of ageing of the face. For effective rejuvenation of the face, a detailed and comprehensive knowledge of the anatomy is a must. Newer advances in this area has brought about effective and efficient usage of injectable fillers and toxin with an actual reduction in the dosages needed. With the spurt in usage of injectables for aesthetic indications came an increase in the number of complications, particularly serious ones like loss of vision and skin necrosis. Studies in vascular anatomy and possible variations, brought about a better understanding of the cause of these complications, and laid the roadmap to safe and effective injection of the face.
