What’s the best wrinkle filler?

What is the best wrinkle filler?Wrinkles eh. It takes us years to earn them, and when they finally arrive, we want to get rid of them!

Though some honourable souls embrace the signs of ageing, most of us would rather our laughter didn’t come with a side order of lines.

But with the aesthetic industry moving so quickly, and new products and treatments being heralded as the next big thing almost daily, it’s hard to keep up.

So, for those of us who want to know – what’s the best wrinkle filler out there?

Wrinkle filler creams and serums

The industry is constantly abuzz with the latest wrinkle-busting product. There’s an ever-growing supply of creams on the market, from humble moisturisers to the new generation of super serums – so-called ‘instant wrinkle fillers’.

These include Olay’s Regenerist 30-Second Wrinkle Filler,┬áCarita Supreme Wrinkle Solution Filler, and SpaceNK’s┬áRevive Intensite Volumising Serum.

Containing different active ingredients, all of these claim to provide a visible plumping effect which reduces the depth of wrinkles.

All of these products may give you a noticeable improvement. It’s fair to say the effect is likely to be subtle, and sadly, like youth itself, it won’t last long.

But if you’re in the market for a new moisturiser anyway, trying one out is certainly not going to do you any harm.

Dermal fillers

Now call us traditionalists, but in our book the most reliable, effective and long-lasting results are achieved with hyaluronic acid based dermal fillers.

Products like Juvederm, Restylane, etc remain the industry’s gold standard when it comes to plumping up lines.

Hyaluronic acid is a water-holding molecule which occurs naturally in the skin. Incredibly, it can retain over 1,000 times its weight in water within the skin cells, which is why it’s so important for keeping the skin smooth, supple and plump.

With ageing, the skin’s production of hyaluronic acid slows down. The skin starts to dry out, lose its youthful plumpness and become more susceptible to creasing. (Think of a wet shirt vs a dry shirt – which is going to crease more easily?)

So injecting hyaluronic acid based filler into the deeper layers of the skin is simply replacing what has been lost.

This pragmatic approach – giving the skin back what it’s missing – is what makes the treatment so effective, and the results (if performed by an experienced practitioner) so natural.

Over to you…

To answer the question of what the best wrinkle filler is, we’ve stated our case for injectable facial fillers.

But the answer for you really depends on what you’re looking for.

If it’s an inexpensive, temporary plumping effect, perhaps for a special occasion or big night out – then some of the instant wrinkle filler products currently available may give you a short-term improvement in your skin.

But if you’d like something that is longer-lasting, administered in a clinical setting by an experienced professional with an expert eye, who can also advise on which treatments and products will give you the biggest improvement, injectable fillers are the way to go.
