Wrinkle Fillers

Wouldn't it be wonderful if it were simply a matter of using a small needle to turn back the hands of time and look younger? Injectable wrinkle fillers are gaining great popularity. Injectable wrinkle fillers are used to minimize laugh lines in the face, crow's feet, and forehead wrinkles. Those who don't like the injectable wrinkle fillers might prefer to try the topical wrinkle removers that are on the market.

Wrinkle Fillers

Fillers are used to plump up the folds in wrinkled skin and give the face a more relaxed and youthful appearance that looks very natural.

Popular Injectable Wrinkle Fillers

Collagen - Collagen is a major part of human skin and tissue. Purified collagen is a popular wrinkle filler that is injected into the wrinkle folds in the forehead, around the eyes, lips, and in scars. Collagen is quite popular and gives the face a very natural look.

Body Fat - Many dermatologist prefer to inject the patient with the patient's own body fat to fill wrinkles and reduce deep lines in their face. The fat deposits are usually withdrawn from the buttocks, abdomen, or thigh area, and injected into the facial lines. The results though often quite remarkable, vary from person to person. In some the new fat injections might last only a few months, others a few years.

Hyaluronic Acid - Hyaluronic Acid is produced by the body and is a natural skin lubricant. The lubricant binds with water and plumps the skin. Synthetic Hyaluronic Acid is marketed as Restylane and Perlane. They are injected into the skin to stimulate new skin cell growth.

Calcium Hydroxylapatite - This is a mineral that is found in the bones. Calcium Hydroxylapatie dissolves in the body and is injected in the form of a gel.

Botox - Botox is not a wrinkle filler but a popular wrinkle remover that is also injected into the folds of the skin. Botox works by relaxing facial muscles that cause the wrinkles to appear on the face. Injections are often used around the forehead. Results last six to twelve months.

Topical Creams

There are many topical wrinkle fillers on the market that are used by millions of people. They have varying results. The most popular one's are collagen based, hyaluronic acid based, hydroxyl apatite based,synthetic polymer based. No two topical wrinkle fillers are alike. It's best to try a few like L'Oreal De Crease Collagen Filler Wrinkle or Eucerin Hyaluron Filler and determine which wrinkle fillers work best with your skin type.
