How Can Fillers Treat Fine Lines And Wrinkles?

Reading Time
6 min read

Dermal fillers are most commonly associated with plumping and volumising effects in the lips and cheeks, but they are also great for treating wrinkles. They are a non-invasive and non-permanent approach to lessen laughter lines, deep or fine forehead lines, or lines around the mouth and nose, resulting in subtle, natural effects.

Read on to learn more about how dermal fillers repair wrinkles and creases, as well as which ones they work best for.


Fine Lines Or Wrinkles, What’s The Difference?

Fine lines are the result of a weakness in the skin’s foundation. They begin to form when the skin becomes folded and unable to return to its normal shape.

They are little skin creases that usually occur directly on or adjacent to the area of facial movement, but they can develop anywhere on the face. For instance, you might see a fine line on your cheeks that has grown crepey due to age and sun exposure.

A wrinkle isn’t that dissimilar. The depth of the crease in the skin is the primary distinction between fine lines and wrinkles. Fine lines are relatively light, whereas wrinkles are more pronounced. Wrinkles are sometimes referred to as expression lines.


What Are Dermal Fillers?

Hyaluronic acid, a gel-like substance produced naturally by your skin to maintain plumpness and hydration, is used to make dermal fillers. Small amounts of the gel are injected just beneath your skin, targeting trouble regions in the process.

Fillers have the advantage of making a significant impact on your appearance without the necessity for surgery or other invasive treatments. Your skin should appear fresher after fillers, giving you a well-rested and revitalised appearance.

Because the filler is injected into the skin, the procedure must be done in a clinical setting by experienced and well-trained specialists. Every one of our clinics at DestinationSkin use highly qualified doctors and nurses and we always put your safety and well-being first.

As with any cosmetic procedure, there are some risks when you have fillers injected. You can read all about what to expect from the treatment in our blog here.

How Does Dermal Fillers Work On Wrinkles?

Dermal fillers are specifically designed to reduce the appearance of unwanted wrinkles and to revitalise your skin.

Fillers work by increasing the amount of hyaluronic acid in your skin, which rejuvenates it, smooths out wrinkles, and gives it a more youthful appearance. Because the hyaluronic acid in our Juvederm® fillers is so similar to the hyaluronic acid your body naturally makes, it blends in seamlessly with your own facial tissue.

Dermal fillers are a simple and non-invasive approach to smooth the skin and restore plumpness to your face, reducing the appearance of wrinkles. They have a natural appearance and do not affect your facial expressions.

Fillers adjust your appearance gently as your face changes throughout time because they aren’t permanent. Fillers soften lines and wrinkles between the brows, around the eyes, crow’s feet, and forehead lines and in all parts of the face. They have the ability to transform smokers’ lines and laughter lines.


Deep Wrinkle Filler

The best treatment for deep wrinkles is dermal filler. Deep wrinkles and deeper lines are treated with thicker fillers, whilst fine lines are treated with thinner fillers. The process is completely the same; just the amount injected may vary.

What Actually Causes Wrinkles?

Learning what causes wrinkles may help you to understand your filler experience a bit better. As you get older, the decreased production of collagen and elastin proteins causes your skin to thin and become easier to wrinkle.

The skin becomes less resistant to harm during this process, and the subcutaneous fat that gives your skin its plump appearance begins to disappear. Wrinkles form on your face when the skin folds naturally during facial expressions such as smiling or frowning. Read more about smile lines in our blog.

Wrinkles can also appear on portions of the body exposed to the sun the most, such as the face and neck, the backs of the hands, and the arms. Collagen and elastin fibres in the skin are broken down by UV radiation. These fibres make up the connective tissue that supports the skin. When this layer breaks down, the skin becomes weaker and less flexible and wrinkles appear as the skin begins to droop.

Smoking, using sunbeds, drinking a lot of alcohol, poor nutrition and being dehydrated are all factors that contribute to your skin showing symptoms of ageing.
