Why Anti-Wrinkle Injections Work Better with FillersApril 13, 2018
The difference between anti-wrinkle injections and dermal fillers is often a bit misguided. It’s true that dermal fillers can be used to plump up the cheeks and enhance your lips, while anti-wrinkle products relax the muscles to, well, reduce wrinkles. What our expert clinicians know is that the best results come from using filler in conjunction with anti-wrinkle products, because there is more to ageing than fine lines.
Anti-wrinkle injections are very popular and effective for forehead lines, furrows between the eyebrows and crow’s feet. When you make facial expressions, they create wrinkles. Anti-wrinkle injections relax specific muscles so that, when they’re administered well, you can make expressions without making wrinkles. There’s a bit of an art to it.
Unfortunately, anti-wrinkle injections can’t be used for cheeks, nasolabial folds (smile lines) or tired lines under the eyes. The muscles that create these lines are needed for speaking and eating, so you don’t want to impede their movement and control. On the other hand, if you’re treating your forehead, you probably want your cheeks to have the same refreshed look as well. This is where dermal fillers come in.
The loss of elasticity that occurs as our skin begins to age can cause our cheeks to lose their fullness, which can contribute to the appearance of wrinkles. Fillers are technically a special type of gel made from medical ingredients that contribute to volume and hydration. By injecting a little bit of filler into the right spots, you can restore plumpness in your cheeks and lift the skin just enough to reduce the appearance of wrinkles.
In a nutshell, you can combine dermal fillers for the cheeks with anti-wrinkle injections for the forehead to get better results for the full face.
