• For more than ten years, the judicious use of intracutaneous injections of relatively small quantities of pure liquid silicone for amelioration of certain deep lines, wrinkles, and atrophic lesions of the face has given gratifying results. Pure liquid silicone meets all the criteria for an ideal injectable fluid prosthesis except one—it is not currently readily available to all qualified practitioners.
