BACKGROUND: Although hyaluronic acid (HA) fillers are extensively used for the correction of facial wrinkles and folds, there is a limit to patient satisfaction, especially in patients with severe wrinkles. OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the potential for synergistic effects with combined treatment using a nonablative infrared (IR) device and HA filler in the treatment of nasolabial fold (NLF) wrinkles. MATERIALS AND METHODS: This was a split-face randomized study in which 12 Korean patients were treated with HA filler on both NLFs and with a nonablative IR device on the experimental side of the face. Clinical evaluations from subjects and investigators and photographs were obtained at baseline, just before and after the procedures, and 1 and 2 months after completion of the procedures. RESULTS: There were no significant differences between wrinkle severity and global aesthetic scores for HA gel implantation alone and HA gel with nonablative IR device treatment at any point. CONCLUSION: Combining the use of a nonablative IR device with HA filler does not appear to be superior to HA filler alone in the treatment of moderate to severe NLF wrinkles.
