Are Fillers Good for Wrinkles?

Not all wrinkles are created equal. There are several different types of wrinkles, and they each develop for a different reason. And since treatments are most effective when they target the root cause of the wrinkle itself, you want to know which option will be best for the specific wrinkles you have. 

Here at Neosculpt Laser Vein & Cosmetic Surgery Center in Abilene, Texas, Nikunj Patel, MD, FACC, and our team offer a range of wrinkle-erasing treatments, including fillers like Juvéderm® and Radiesse®. We can also help you determine which treatment will be best for your specific type of wrinkle(s). 

To help you get started, let’s look at when fillers are the right choice for wrinkles.  

Wrinkles fillers can treat

Because fillers replace volume that your face has lost through the years, they’re ideal for wrinkles that develop as a result of volume decrease. Some of those wrinkles include:

With a quick treatment using fillers, Dr. Patel can help to smooth any folds that have developed because of decreasing volume under your skin. At the same time, he can also restore the youthful contours to your face. 

Generally speaking, the lower portion of your face is most susceptible to volume loss. And that makes fillers ideal for treating wrinkles that develop there.

Volume loss-related wrinkles aren’t confined to your face, though. You may also develop wrinkles on the backs of your hands — and fillers can reverse this issue. 

Wrinkles that require other treatment

While fillers can address a number of different types of wrinkles, there are some that require alternative treatment. Specifically, fillers won’t do much for dynamic wrinkles, or the wrinkles that develop on the upper portion of your face because of repeated facial expressions. Dynamic wrinkles include:

Fortunately, an equally convenient cosmetic injectable can help to smooth these wrinkles: Botox®. With this treatment, Dr. Patel can temporarily freeze the muscles causing your wrinkle, smoothing the skin over it. 

In other words, while fillers can’t treat all types of wrinkles, they can address a range of facial creases and folds. And when fillers aren’t the best choice, Botox can step in to give you smoother skin.

With both fillers and Botox, you’re looking at a treatment that can take 15 minutes or less and comes with no downtime. These options can help you look your best through the years without losing a lot of time out of your daily schedule. 

If you want smooth, wrinkle-free skin, don’t hesitate to call Neosculpt Laser Vein & Cosmetic Surgery Center or request your appointment online today. We can help you choose the right treatment — fillers, Botox, or both — for your cosmetic goals.
