What Was the Latest Trend in Cosmetic Facial Fillers in 2015?

As of 2015, one of the newest innovations in facial-filler therapy is ATX-101, a synthetic version of a naturally occurring molecule that breaks down fat, states New Beauty.com. Manufactured by Kythera Biopharmaceuticals, ATX-101 helps contour the area under the chin, according to Kythera.com.

Another trend-setting product is Restylane Silk, the first filler approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration that's designed specifically for treating the lips and mouth. A clear hyaluronic acid gel, it has a much smaller particle formulation than other facial fillers and imparts a natural, youthful look, states dermatologist Ellen Marmur, M.D. on New Beauty.com.

Overall, the number of minimally invasive cosmetic procedures performed in the United States increased 4 percent between 2013 and 2014, the American Society of Plastic Surgeons reports. Facial-filler injections, which numbered 2.3 million in 2014, were up 6 percent.
