All About Wrinkle Fillers

A lot of the visible signs of aging can be attributed to loss of fat and proteins in the skin layer. As you age, facial tissues thin out resulting in lines that become etched around the nose and mouth. This also causes your cheeks to look hollow and the skin around the jaw and chin to sag. 

 

Wrinkle fillers replace lost volume to help smooth wrinkles, even plump the lips and restore your youthful appearance.  

 

What are wrinkle fillers made of?

 

Wrinkle fillers are gel-like substances that are injected under the skin to change its appearance. There are several varieties of FDA approved filler products and are categorized by the substance they are made of.  

 

The different substances wrinkle fillers are made of are:

 

  • Hyaluronic Acid (HA)

  • Calcium Hydroxylapatite (CaHA)

  • Poly-L-lactic Acid

  • Polymethylmethacrylate (PMMA)

  • Autologous fat 

 

These will be discussed in more detail below.

 

How are wrinkle fillers different from Botox or Xeomin?

 

Although both wrinkle fillers and Botox or Xeomin work to give you a more youthful look, the way they minimize wrinkles are different. 

 

Botox or Xeomin, both neurotoxins,  smooth wrinkles and lines by relaxing the muscle under the wrinkle. In contrast, injectable wrinkle fillers, as their name suggests, fill the line, crease or an area of your skin with one of several different FDA approved substances. 

 

With either Botox or Xeomin, wrinkles may fade until barely visible, wrinkle fillers cause trouble spots to nearly disappear.

 

The effects of wrinkle fillers may last from 6 to 12 months. With Botox or Xeomin, treatments may need to be done every 3 to 6 months to maintain effects.

  • “Marionette” lines or smile lines 

  • Sunken cheeks or temples

  • Thin lips

  • Vertical lip lines

  • Chin creases

What are the wrinkle fillers available in the market?

As mentioned above, there are several varieties of wrinkle fillers. They differ in their basic ingredients, the way they work and on what areas they address best. It’s important to choose an experienced and certified technician to administer the treatment.  

 

This way you are sure that you are using the right one for the kind of issue you are addressing. This minimizes the risks and ensures the best results.

 

Hyaluronic Acid (HA)

Hyaluronic acid is a substance naturally occurring in your skin. This is what keeps skin plump and hydrated. HA wrinkle fillers are soft and gel-like. Results can last from 6 to 12 months. In some cases, it can last up to 2 years when the body has absorbed all the particles.

 

What are the possible side effects with HA fillers?

✔️ Redness, swelling or bruising at the injections site

✔️ Tiny bumps under the skin (result of the filler showing) which often improves over time

 

FDA approved HA fillers include:

  • Juvéderm products: Juvéderm XC, VOLUMA, VOLBELLA, VOLLURE

  • Restylane products: Restylane, Restylane Silk, Restylane Lyft, Restylane Refyne, and Restylane Defyne

  • Belotero Balance

 

Calcium Hydroxylapatite (CaHA)

Like Hyaluronic acid, Calcium hydroxylapatite is a naturally occuring substance. This time it’s found in our bones. In a filler, the microscopic calcium particles are suspended in a smooth gel. 

 

CaHa fillers are thicker than HA fillers and its effects last longer - typically 12 months for most patients. This type of filler has been found to help stimulate natural collagen formation. It works best for deeper lines and wrinkles.

 

What are the possible side effects?

✔️ Redness, swelling, bruising at injection site

✔️ Nodules or bumps under the skin that can be seen of felt (in rare instances, they may require surgery to remove)

 

FDA approved CaHA fillers include Radiesse®.

 

Poly-L-lactic Acid

Poly-L-lactic acid is a synthetic but biodegradable substance but is categorized as biocompatible, i.e. safe to use in the body. This substance has already been used in medical applications including in dissolvable stitches. Therefore, it’s already been proven to be safe for use in the body.

 

Poly-L-lactic acid fillers smooth fines by helping the skin rebuild natural collagen. The gel that the filler is suspended in dissipates after a few days after the treatment. 

 

This type of filler is best used for deeper facial wrinkles. The effects of the treatment can last more than 2 years.

 

What are the possible side effects?

  • Redness, swelling, bruising at injection site

  • Nodules or bumps under the skin that can be seen of felt (in rare instances, they may require surgery to remove)

 

FDA approved Poly-L-lactic acid fillers include Sculptra® Aesthetic.

 

Polymethylmethacrylate (PMMA)

Like the Poly-L-lactic acid filler, Polymethylmethacrylate (PMMA) is likewise synthetic but biocompatible that has been used for medical applications since the last century. 

 

This substance comes in a form of microspheres - tiny, synthetic balls that give structure underneath deep wrinkles when injected into the skin. This type of filler also is used to make thin lips plumper.

 

PMMA also has collagen in its formulation. As previously mentioned, collagen helps in keeping the structure and firmness of the skin.

 

PMMA fillers have long term effects. Because of this, treatment is done over several appointments to slowly fill in the area of concern with multiple but smaller injections. 

 

What are the possible side effects?

Redness, swelling, bruising at injection site

Nodules or bumps under the skin that can be seen of felt (in rare instances, they may require surgery to remove)

  

FDA approved PMMA fillers include Bellafill® (formerly known as Artefill).

 

Autologous Fat Injections (Facial Fat Grafting)

Unlike the other variants of wrinkle fillers, autologous fat injections require surgery. However, the effects of the treatment lasts for many years. 

 

As the name implies, fat harvested from another area of the body is used for the treatment. Typically, the method of harvesting is through liposuction. The harvested fat is subsequently purified to be suitable for injection into the face. Autologous fat injections help restore volume to cheeks, temples, lower eyelids and other areas which have lost volume. 

 

Because of the nature of the procedure, only experienced, board certified cosmetic surgeons should perform autologous fat injections. 

 

Risks are similar to other wrinkle fillers, including bruising, redness, and swelling at the site of the injection. 

 

These injections do not require FDA approval because the fillers are from your own body.
