All About Wrinkle Fillers
Going under the knife for a cosmetic procedure is something that is simply not an option for many people. However, in recent years, new methods have been developed to give you the same results but without the risks and dangers of surgery. OROGOLD takes a closer look at wrinkle fillers, as well as the different forms that they come in.
What are Wrinkle Fillers?
Fillers mainly come in the form of creams, serums and injections, and are able to provide results that are comparable to, if not often better than, surgery. Many people tend to confuse fillers with treatments such as Botox, but there are huge differences. Botox is a bacterial toxin that gives you temporary results, and needs to be repeated on a regular basis. In comparison, fillers work alongside the body, encouraging change from within, rather than something superficial that won’t last.
Hyaluronic Acid Fillers
Hyaluronic acid is a substance which can be found in the human body. It helps to lubricate joints and acts as a shock absorber. It is also found in the connective tissues of the face, especially around the eyes, making it a good substance to use for fillers as it is already extremely compatible with the body. Once injected, the hyaluronic acid acts like an inflated cushion, bringing structure and support to tissues. Those of you who aren’t keen on needles can opt for a hyaluronic acid filler gel, which can effectively fill in wrinkles and fine lines. However, the gel needs to be used for at least six weeks before results are seen, and they are usually not as dramatic as those that come about from an injection.
Poly L-Lactic Acid
Rather than being an instant treatment, poly l-lactic acid is more of a long-term one, and works with your body to produce more collagen. While it may lack the instantaneous results that other fillers, as well as surgery, can offer, a series of three to six injections will last you for over two years. It is a synthetic substance, but rather than this being a disadvantage, it usually works in your favor as it means that there is less chance that your body will allergically react to it. Many people choose to combine poly l-lactic acid fillers with other fillers in order to experience both short and long term results.
While wrinkle fillers may seem like an ideal anti-aging solution, they are not something that OROGOLD would recommend unless you truly have exhausted all other options and your severe wrinkles are having a negative impact on the quality of your life. Fillers come with many downsides, from their side effects to the chance of experiencing lumpiness from being injected in the wrong place. There are many less invasive ways to experience anti-aging results, so be sure that you have explored all of these before looking into fillers.
