Does deep wrinkle filler really work?

facial skin injections


Deep wrinkle fillers, also known as dermal fillers, are a popular cosmetic treatment used to smooth out wrinkles and plump up areas of the face that have lost volume due to aging. The most common types of fillers are made from hyaluronic acid, a substance that occurs naturally in the body and helps to hydrate and plump the skin. The fillers are injected into the skin using a fine needle, and can be used to treat wrinkles around the eyes, mouth, and forehead, as well as to add volume to the cheeks and jawline.

The effectiveness of deep wrinkle fillers depends on the specific product used, the skill of the injector, and the individual's skin type and condition. In general, fillers can provide a noticeable improvement in the appearance of wrinkles, making the skin appear smoother and more youthful. However, results can vary and are typically not permanent, lasting anywhere from six months to two years.

Glycolic acid cream, such as Dermatologist's Choice Ultra Anti-Aging Cream is a type of alpha hydroxy acid (AHA) that is often used as an anti-aging treatment to smooth out wrinkles. It works by exfoliating the surface of the skin, removing dead skin cells and revealing the smoother, more youthful skin underneath. Glycolic acid is also known to stimulate collagen production, which can help to firm and plump up the skin.

One of the main advantages of glycolic acid cream is that it can be used as a part of a regular skincare routine. Unlike deep wrinkle fillers, it does not require injections and can be used at home. Furthermore, it is a gentle treatment that can be used on all skin types, whereas deep wrinkle fillers are not suitable for everyone, particularly those with certain medical conditions or skin allergies.

While deep wrinkle fillers can provide immediate results, glycolic acid cream takes longer to work, but the results can be more long-lasting. When used regularly over time, glycolic acid can help to improve the overall texture and tone of the skin, leaving it looking smoother and more youthful. Additionally, glycolic acid is a great addition to a skincare routine for those who wish to target multiple signs of aging like age spots, fine lines, uneven skin tone and more.

It is also worth mentioning that it is important to consider the potential side effects of both treatments. Deep wrinkle fillers can cause redness, swelling, and pain at the injection site, and in rare cases, allergic reactions or even infection. Glycolic acid cream can cause redness, itching and dryness if the skin is over-exfoliated.

In conclusion, both deep wrinkle fillers and glycolic acid cream can be effective in smoothing out wrinkles and improving the appearance of aging skin. However, they work in different ways and have different benefits and drawbacks. Deep wrinkle fillers can provide immediate results but may not be suitable for everyone and they require professional administration while glycolic acid cream takes longer to work but can be used by anyone and as part of a regular skincare routine, and it addresses multiple signs of aging.
