Types of Wrinkle Fillers, Uses, Side Effects, Benefits, Risks …

Waking up one fine morning just to see wrinkles appearing on my face is my biggest nightmare. Once the very first wrinkle appears, it is assumed that you are now heading towards old age. And trust me, it is not a good feeling at all.

Thankfully today, with modern advancement in cosmetic procedures, we can easily conceal these wrinkles and fine lines. Adding to it, many surgical and non-surgical options are available from which we can choose according to our age, genes, and skin elasticity.

One of the most commonly used procedures is injectable wrinkle fillers. Many of us will confuse them with botox injections, but both are completely different. Moreover, it is available in many types.

Notably, you should be careful about choosing the right type of injectable fillers according to your skin type and the problem you want to treat.

Let’s have a closer look at it below.

What Are Injectable Fillers?

With age when your skin begins to sag and fine lines and wrinkles start appearing on your face and neck, wrinkle fillers are a savior for you.

Injectable wrinkle fillers, as the name suggests, will fill the wrinkles with some gel-like materials. It is easier and less costly than a facelift. Moreover, wrinkle fillers can give your cheeks, temples, and lips a plumper look. It is quite a fast and easy procedure.

But I always thought the injections we get are called Botox. Surprisingly, fillers are a completely different thing. Want to know more about them to get the correct one as per your skin type? Read on.

 Difference Between Wrinkle Fillers And Botox:

The principle behind botox is to freeze the targeted muscle. Furthermore, it relaxes the muscle so that it stops aging for some time and stays where it is.

Whereas the injectable fillers fill any hollow spaces giving your skin a much smoother look.

Although it is easy to get an injectable wrinkle filler, it can have some side effects if you do not get the right type of filler.

Let’s have a look at some types of fillers available and their pros and cons.

Autologous Wrinkle Fillers:

An autologous wrinkle filler can be the safest choice because the substance used for filling comes from your body. What’s more? Two types of autologous wrinkle fillers are available including:

Autologous Fat Injections:

For this type of injection, some unwanted fat is taken from your body. It is extracted from areas such as thighs, buttocks, abdomen, or arms using a simple liposuction procedure. This fat is then refined and injected to fill the wrinkles in the face, neck, chest, shoulders, or wherever required.

Platelet-Rich Plasma:

Platelet-rich plasma is another wonder our bodies can produce. Blood is drawn out from your body and centrifuged to gain platelet-rich plasma. This, when inserted in the affected area, not only fills the space but also has a natural healing property.

Some benefits of autologous wrinkle fillers are:

  • They might initiate natural healing and regrowth of the skin.
  • Safe as they are natural and derived from your own body.


They have minimal side effects such as redness and bruising in the injection area, which goes away within a few weeks.
