Beauty Talk: Topical Wrinkle Fillers

If you are not yet ready for injectable wrinkle fillers, explore topical products that promise the same effect.

Currently there is a big choice of wrinkle filling creams on the market that offer not only visual correction but provide positive anti-aging effect on your skin as well.

What's inside? Usually fillers are based on silicon or collagen, or both. In addition, fillers tend to contain light diffusing particles to intensify a smoothing effect. They can also contain hyaluronic acid which is a naturally occurring substance found in dermis that fills the space between collagen and elastin fibers. Hyaluronic acid effectively attracts and retains moisture making skin plump and supple.

How do they work? When you apply a wrinkle filler, silicone settles on top of the skin filling wrinkles in and minimizing their appearance. At the same time, collagen, even though it’s molecule is quite big, can get deeper into the skin and Hyaluronic Acid, in its turn, penetrates, deep into epidermis. Both collagen and Hyaluronic Acid attract and absorb water and help to smooth and plump up those lines from the inside.

How to apply? Wrinkle fillers are applied after a daily moisturizer before foundation. Some fillers can be applied all over the face, while others need precise targeted application directly on a wrinkle. The latter come in a specially designed package with a pointed applicator. Apply fillers with light tapping motions.

Pros and Cons: While wrinkle fillers have some definite benefits such as an immediate smoothing effect, they also have some downsides. For example, trying to layer a wrinkle filler can actually result in the product just peeling off or turning into crumbs. Due to their matte texture, some fillers can be quite visible on the skin. Also some people find wrinkle fillers too thick and slippery. So if you want to give wrinkle fillers a try, keep all of these points in mind when shopping for a product.
