Anti Wrinkle Treatment with Soft Tissue Fillers (Restylane®, Perlane®, Juvēderm and Fat)
As we age, our skin loosens and becomes thinner. But worse yet, the cumulative impact on each of our progressively thinning skins of gravity and a variable exposure to sun radiation, stress, smoking, questionable dietary habits and millions of facial
contractions (smiles, frowns, chewing, grimacing, squinting and winking) - all combine to produce a great variety of facial loss of volume, depressions, fine lines and facial wrinkles. While we cannot stop aging, we can stop engaging in certain “pruning” activities and habits which damage and greatly age our skin. Next, to repair this damage we need to restore lost volume to the volume deficient areas.
Most skin wrinkles may be smoothed and corrected by the replacement of the lost volume under the wrinkle or depression. This is very effective wrinkle treatment is commonly done by the injection of various soft tissue fillers under the skin depression, nicely lifting it and thereby, greatly smoothing and effacing the wrinkle. Soft tissue fillers are may be used in the a wide variety of skin areas. Although some fillers are better suited than others for each area.
As you can see in the diagram on the right, fillers are commonly used in filling facial wrinkles or folds (nasolabial, smoker’s lines, puppet lines, crow’s feet, forehead, neck, chin or base of nose lines), as well as in lip augmentation, in the rejuvenation of thinning hands, and in filling and lifting depressed scars (i.e. acne, or chicken pox). Today’s wrinkle fillers can be classified as either Hyaluronic acid (HA) fillers or NON-Hyaluronic Acid fillers
Hyaluronic Acid (HA) Fillers
Hyaluronic acid wrinkle fillers have become the most popular fillers in the world. They have far surpassed Collagen, the former leader, in popularity and have practically made the use of Collagen obsolete. Hyaluronic acid (HA) is a natural substance found throughout our body. It gives structure and volume to our skin, lubricates our joints and gives our eyes their shape. Our body's ability to produce hyaluronic acid diminishes with age. As a result, the levels and concentrations of hyaluronic acid concentrations decline with age throughout the human body causing undesirable deflated wrinkly changes in the skin. Returning HA to the skin restore its volume and appearance and makes the skin appear youthful again.
Areas where Wrinkle fillers are used
The two most commonly used hyaluronic acid fillers in the world are: 1. Restylane®and Perlane®produced by Q-Med and distributed in the US by Medicis. (Please, click HERE to learn more about Restylane and Perlane and see what they can do for YOU) and 2. Juvēderm – produced by Allergan (Please, click HERE to learn more about Juvēderm and see what it can do for YOU)
NON-Hyaluronic Acid (HA) Fillers
Fat Grafting - Your own fat can be borrowed from other areas of your body and used to smooth wrinkles, folds or depressions anywhere in your body such as wrinkles at the corners of the mouth ("puppet" lines or "drool grooves"), cheek/smile (nasolabial) lines or other skin depressions (i.e. acne scars) and to smooth and rejuvenate aging hands (where the tendons, veins and
bones become too prominent). The injected fat fills the defect, lifts the depression and flattens the overlying wrinkles and folds. Fat may be suctioned under local anesthesia from your lower abdomen, lateral or inner thighs or buttocks and placed in the skin under the fold or depression. The procedure may be done by itself or may be combined with liposuction of other areas of the body. Most patients return to work in 5-7 days and are able to assume more strenuous activities in 7-14 days.
The IDEAL Wrinkle Filler
By their nature, plastic surgeons are curious and artistic individuals who are always looking for newer, better and safer ways to improve their patients’ lives. Plastic surgeons have long looked for THE ideal soft tissue filler; Such a filler would have to combine great ease of use, no downtime for the patient (walk-in, put in, walk-out), have immediate predictable and durable results and it would not be associated with any allergic reactions, infection, inflammation or disease. Unfortunately, no one single filler available today combines all of these desirable qualities but some have more of these desirable characteristics than others.
“Doctor, have you heard about THAT NEW WRINKLE FILLER?”
The field of soft tissue augmentation is in constantly changing. We continuously see new fillers appear with great fanfare and mass media advertising only to see them slowly retreat to a more realistic position or to be taken off the market once their limitations become known to plastic surgeons. Through the years, many wrinkle fillers have been used and then abandoned (such as mineral oil, liquid wax (paraffin), Vaseline, liquid silicone, Kangaroo tendon, fibrin foam, Teflon paste and others). Some soft tissue fillers have been used in the USA but were not profitable and have beendiscontinued (Autolagen®, Isolagen®, Dermalogen® and Dermaplant®). Other fillers such as Aquamid® (Transparent hydrophilic polyacrylamide gel (HPG, or PAAG) with residual unpolymerized acrylamide from Denmark), Arteplast®(Plexiglas (PMMA) microspheres), Argiform® and Formacryl (a Russian produced filler containing polyacrylamide gel with unpolymerized acrylamide), Bioplastique® (vulcanized polydimethylsiloxane spheres),
Evolution® (polyvinyl microspheres suspended in polyacrylamide gel), Fibrel®, Koken Atelocollagen®(Japanese monomolecular collagen), Dermalive and DermaDeep(mixture of 40% acrylic hydrogel, hydroxyethylmethacrylate (HEMA), ethylmethacrylate (EMA) suspended in 60% hyaluronic acid from France), Metacryl (polymethymethacrylate(PMMA) beads - used widely in Brazil and Mexico), OutLine® (hydrophilic polyacrylamide hydrogel implant), Plasmagel (made of human plasma), Restoplast®(German Collagen), Amazingel (PMMA microspheres made in Germany and China) and others, are either not commonly used or not FDA-approved in the USA.
For your safety, be smart and look beyond the glossy ads, testimonials and too-good-to-be-true before-and-after photos. You should know that the import and/or use of any non-FDA approved drug or wrinkle filler is illegal and may put you in danger. Any doctor or "injector" (Aesthetician, RN etc) who either imports, or uses such FDA unapproved fillers is risking YOUR well-being and is committing a Federal crime. Now stop and think for a second. If a doctor is willing to risks major lawsuits, Federal prosecution and losing his/her medical license by injecting such unapproved, potentially dangerous into your face FOR PROFIT, do you REALLY think he cares much about YOUR well-being??

Restylane Perlane Results
Your results will depend on your injector and the use of authentic Juvederm,Restylane and Perlane.
The ability to create great results with Juvederm, Restylane, Perlane and other fillers DEPENDS on your injector (? a doctor) having both a good knowledge of facial anatomy and an artistic sense.
Unfortunately, only a small minority of the people injecting Botox and wrinkle fillers posses such requisite knowledge and skills because, by law, any doctor, regardless of their training, who wishes to, and almost anyone else who is “supervised” by a doctor, can legally inject Juvederm, Restylane, Perlane and other fillers into any willing patient. In recent years we have seen an explosive growth in non-surgical cosmetic procedures which are often performed in retail or spa-like settings without real medical supervision or experience. Lured by profit, despite lacking experience and training and having, at best, only limited and often no full time medical staff, many spa-type centers, now offer chemical peels, dermabrasion, lasers, wrinkle fillers and Botox to an unsuspecting clientele in many shopping malls, beauty salons and strip malls. Although such injections are supposed to be at least, “supervised” by a qualified doctor, in reality, sadly that rarely happens. In fact, the vast majority of Botox and wrinkle filler treatments in the US are given by non-doctor injectors, most of which do not fully know facial anatomy, do not understand facial anatomy and do not possess the artistry required to produce natural results.
Do you know your Wrinkle Fillers injector’s training and qualifications?
For YOUR safety, you should only have cosmetic procedures (including tissue filler injections, laser, skin resurfacing, Botox and fillers) from properly trained and board-certified aesthetic medical professionals who use only Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved products.
