Basics of Wrinkle Filler Skin Procedures

Plastic surgery had made tremendous technological advances that injectable wrinkle fillers had brought wonders to cosmetic dermatology. New forms wrinkle treatment and facial rejuvenation had become possible, with resorting to cosmetic procedure or other complicated face procedures. The injectable wrinkle filler helps the surgeon to increase the volume of the tissue in the areas of the wrinkles, thus reducing the wrinkles and improving the overall contour of the skin.

Collagen Injections

Collagen is a natural protein that is present in the human body. Collagen supports the bones, joints, skin, and ligaments. Collagen is extracted from humans or cows. Certain people might be allergic to collagen injections from the collagen of cows. Human collagen injections like Cosmoplast and Cosmoderm had been found to be quite safe in the skin procedures of wrinkle treatment. The surgeon doing the plastic surgery would expertly inject collagen in required places to reduce the wrinkles.

Fat Fillers

Other wrinkle treatment face procedures use fat fillers through processes known as microlipoinjections or autologous fat transfer. The use of fat fillers is also considered to be a quite safe cosmetic surgery procedure. In this process, the surgeon would draw a small amount of fact from the buttocks or the thigh through a low-power liposuction process. Then this fat would be injected into the facial areas that had been targeted as wrinkled areas. Since the fat fillers would be absorbed by the body over time, the use of fat fillers for wrinkle treatment might be required to be done again after a year or two.

Other Wrinkle Filler Injections


Botox® Cosmetic is popular as wrinkle filler in plastic surgery, since the whole procedure takes only 10-15 minutes. However, the results would last only for 3-6 months. Hylaform, Juvederm, Radiesse, Restylane, Scupltra, and Zyderm are some of the other registered wrinkle treatment injections available in the market. The effective life of wrinkle reduction might vary among these products but they are all considered quite safe. A few plastic surgery wrinkle treatment procedures use Calcium Hydroxyapatite as fat filler implants but this is generally used for dental implants and hip replacements, rather than as wrinkle filler.
