Painless Wrinkle Filler – Could It Be True?

The Cure For Frown Lines and Crow’s Feet – Botox® or Dysport™

We all know that as we age, our skin changes. This process is influenced by many factors; it could be internal factors (genetics, age), external factors (sun-exposure, stress, smoking, drinking) and the combination of both. The development of wrinkles and facial folds stage a big dilemma for many of us. 

In the fight against wrinkles best results can be achieved by combining a preventive wrinkle treatment with corrective wrinkle treatments. Although Botox® and Dysport™ (or treatments alike) are highly effective wrinkle reducers, when it comes to wrinkles that have developed due to repetitive facial muscle movements; however these treatments are not suitable to be used as wrinkle filler neither on already existing facial lines, nor on wrinkles caused by excessive sun-exposure.

But worry not! With the advantages of dermal filler injections, you can the erase the signs of aging. Filler injections can help by filling the existing facial folds, restoring lost volume and improving skin structure. Whether your need is to rejuvenate skin, smooth away wrinkles or enhance facial contours or lips – there is a dermal filler to do just that. 

Wrinkle fillers are the perfect solution for people who prefer less invasive, non-surgical procedures. Advances in dermal filler treatments have made even full-face rejuvenations possible - without surgery. A highly effective non-surgical face lift usually consists of Dysport™ or Botox® Cosmetic injections and a combination of facial line fillers. 

Until recently, whenever people have talked about filler injections, they were referring to some type of collagen-based dermal filler. This type of collagen is a liquid protein that is extracted from cowhide. Because of the nature of this filler, some people have allergic reactions to it, therefore an allergy test is usually performed before it could be used on a patient.

To the contrary, some of the best wrinkle fillers are not derived from collagen, but rather, from substances naturally occurring in our bodies; such as hyaluronic acid and calcium hydroxylapatite (a natural substance which exists in human bones and teeth). Since both of these substances occur naturally in the human body, these fillers require no allergy testing prior to treatment.

Radiesse is one of the longest lasting wrinkle filler, its effects can last for 12-18 months. Radiesse filler is approved by the FDA, not only for cosmetic applications, but for medical uses as well. Its microspheres consist of calcium hydroxylapatite and they are suspended within a gel carrier. The gel carrier gradually resolves and is replaced with your own body’s natural soft-tissue. Therefore it will remain soft and pliable and will take on the characteristics of the surrounding tissue. 

That makes Radiesse filler a great choice for non-surgical face-lift and facial contouring. Typical Radiesse injections could be used in many ways: smoothing and contouring smile lines or nasolabial folds, acne scars, facial defects or recessions, frown lines and forehead wrinkles.
As a facial line filler, Radiesse injection can also help by adding or restoring volume in and around the cheeks, or correcting asymmetrical features. However, when injected in the lips this substance can form nodules, or small lumps, in some patients. 

For lip injections, Restylane® filler would be a great choice. Restylane is made from non-animal based hyaluronic acid and it was developed as the first collagen-replacement therapy. It’s proven to give long-lasting - up to 6 months - correction of moderate-to-severe facial wrinkles. Restylane injections could also be used for lip augmentation and/or enhancement.

Perlane® dermal filler was developed by the makers of Restylane® for the treatment of deeper facial wrinkles and folds, such as forehead wrinkles and nasolabial folds. It is excellent for non-surgical facial contouring. Perlane® is also a hyaluronic acid wrinkle filler that has been used across the world. It is also a popular dermal filler for the correction of facial depressions and scarring, and often used for lip injections.

Prevelle® Silk is another dermal filler that works by increasing the amount of hyaluronic acid naturally found in your skin, thus reducing the appearance of facial lines, wrinkles and folds. That's what makes Prevelle Silk and excellent facial line filler. 

Juvederm filler is also made of hyaluronic acid. This injectable gel wrinkle filler was developed by the makers of Botox Cosmetic. Juvederm is ofter used in lip injections, as the gel base provides a very smooth, natural look. Studies show superior results of Juvederm™ compared to a collagen–based dermal filler. In addition, Juvederm™ filler is the first FDA–approved hyaluronic acid dermal filler that is proven to be safe and effective for persons of color.

Since these filler injections usually do not pose a threat in form of allergic reactions, side-effects are mostly injection-related. Some of these injection-related side-effects are swelling, itching and tenderness, but the most common issue is the pain and discomfort that is caused by the needle penetration and the suddenly expanding tissue.

That's what inspired some of the dermal filler manufacturers to provide patients with a more comfortable treatment. Thus the idea of a painless wrinkle filler was born. If you want a more youthful appearance, but you're concerned about the potential discomfort, now you can get the same results without the pain.

These brand new fillers have the added benefit of a local anesthetic to reduce injection-site pain during the procedure. By combining lidocaine with these highly effective fillers, the solution itself helps reduce discomfort during and after treatment. And that reduces your downtime to the very minimum; you will be able to walk out of your doctor's office the minute your procedure is done, with smoother skin and soft, natural results. 

Some of the biggest brand-names, that are currently offering this new line of wrinkle fillers are Restylane, Perlane, Juvederm, Prevelle and Artefill.
