When faced with wrinkles, many women immediately turn to injectable fillers. However, these treatments are expensive, temporary, and sometimes risky.
This article will discuss why topical products, not a wrinkle filler, are the best wrinkle solution.
Wrinkle Filler Problems
Injectable wrinkle fillers use natural or synthetic substances to soften the appearance of creases and wrinkles and give skin a firmer, plumper appearance. While fillers immediately show moderate to dramatic results, the results last only a few months before the condition requires another treatment.
Each treatment costs $450-$1200, and antibodies from previous fillers can reduce the effectiveness of new treatments.
More distressing, however, are the potential complications. Bleeding, bruising, and swelling are common side effects.
Other potential complications include:
- Allergic reaction
- Infection at the site of injection
- Clumping can result in lumps that require surgery to treat
- Acne-like eruptions, rash, itching, or redness
- Migration of filler material
The majority of collagen used as a wrinkle filler is derived from cows and can cause an allergic reactions.
Although some newer collagen treatments are derived from human collagen, beware: in 2009, a Peruvian gang killed numerous people and sold their fat on the black market for $60,000/gallon for wrinkle filler.
Instead of going under the needle, opt for a more permanent, risk-free solution: topical products formulated with anti-aging ingredients.
For example, vitamin C ester, found in a number of Perricone Cosmeceuticals such as High Potency Amine Complex, helps stimulate the growth of fibroblasts. This is helpful because fibroblasts are the cells that help produce collagen and elastin, important proteins that give skin its structure.
What’s special about Perricone Cosmeceuticals is that these products have lasting effects in addition to their often immediate improvements.
