New Fangled Wrinkle Fillers

1.4 million people had their wrinkles filled last year! That’s a lot of wrinkles. The old cow collagen has been replaced with products like Evolence, Juvederm, Radiesse, and Restylane. It’s part of what I call the rejuvenative revolution!

1.4 million people had their wrinkles filled last year! That’s a lot of wrinkles. The old cow collagen has been replaced with products like Evolence, Juvederm, Radiesse, and Restylane. It’s part of what I call the rejuvenative revolution! 

Did you know that filling wrinkles not only makes you look better, but actually prevents more wrinkles from forming? It sounds like fantasy, but wrinkle fillers stiffen the skin – and that staves off more wrinkles. And there’s a third benefit to filling those wrinkles – your body thinks it’s gaining weight. When you fool your body, you actually grow more collagen – thicker collagen – from the injection. So 20% of it becomes permanent!

The new wrinkle fillers are safer than the old ones and rarely cause problems. So when you look in the mirror and see those first lines around your mouth, those plastic surgeons are working overtime making you look better. I write more about wrinkle fillers and cosmetic surgery in my book, Straight Talk about Cosmetic Surgery.
