Three Benefits of Wrinkle Fillers

Would you take shots in the face just to look younger? Wrinkle-filling injections have become incredibly popular. Last year, 1.4 million people had facial wrinkles filled in – to look younger. And all but 80,000 of these were in women. When doctors inject these miracle substances into wrinkles, we see an immediate effect – most people say “WOW” by the time they leave the office.

Would you take shots in the face just to look younger? Wrinkle-filling injections have become incredibly popular. Last year, 1.4 million people had facial wrinkles filled in – to look younger. And all but 80,000 of these were in women. When doctors inject these miracle substances into wrinkles, we see an immediate effect – most people say “WOW” by the time they leave the office.

But did you know that there are really 3 effects of wrinkle filling? When we inject any filler, we stretch the skin and fool the body into thinking it has gained weight – and it needs to grow the skin – and so it makes more of its own collagen. And, when filler is injected into the skin, it stiffens it. And stiffer skin doesn’t wrinkle as easily.


So, when you have Juvederm, Restylane, or Radiesse treatments, you’re getting 3 benefits for the price of one!
