What are the Side Effects Linked to Wrinkle Fillers?

While many women may know plenty about wrinkle creams that can help moisturize the skin, they may not be as familiar with a product known as a wrinkle filler. A wrinkle filler is a product that is used to help soften the signs of wrinkles and essentially plump up the skin cells to minimize the appearance of aging. These fillers can be created from a variety of different things, including your own fat cells or from collagen. Botox is one example of a wrinkle filler, although there are many different kinds. The downside to these products is that there are often very uncomfortable side effects and some of these can be downright dangerous.

What is the Side Effects Linked to Wrinkle Fillers?

Wrinkle fillerscan cause local redness that is difficult to remove for a few days. In addition, some people may notice extra tenderness and discomfort in the injection site. Injectable fillers can bring about an increased risk of infection from both the procedure as well as from the ingredients. Essentially, when you use any of these fillers, you are placing yourself at a much greater risk of side effects that you could expect from any invasive procedure. This is why so many women are far more willing to try good wrinkle creams first – these creams have far fewer problems, are more affordable and don’t have the risks that come with injectable fillers.

Wrinkle creams to have one disadvantage, however. They often take months to work and injectable fillers work instantly and can take years off of your face in less than half an hour. Wrinkle creams are less risky but do take a great deal of time and consistency to work while fillers can truly create an instantly younger looking appearance. This is one reason why so many women are more than willing to take their chances with fillers – you can walk out of the doctor’s office with a much younger you. However, wrinkle creams will not offer the unwanted side effects and do work well, even if they take longer for the effects to be noticed.

Wrinkle creams that use collagen replacement are your best option as an alternative to the riskier injections and often cost far less as well. In addition, you can also use wrinkle creams as a prevention program, something you really cannot do with the fillers. If you want a younger looking appearance, you need to make the right choice for a safe collage replacement method.
