Wrinkle Reduction in Glasgow with Filler Injections
Dr Darren McKeown offers award-winning anti-ageing wrinkle filler treatments in Glasgow using HA fillers.
Dermal fillers were initially developed to simply fill in fine lines and wrinkles on the facial skin. However, as our understanding of the ageing process advanced and became more sophisticated, how we use these fillers changed to focus on more complex volume restoration treatments.
Treatments using fillers now focus on strategically restoring lost volume to the face instead of just filling in frown lines or forehead wrinkles.
As treatments have become more complex, it is easy to forget the basic uses of fillers to simply reduce or remove facial lines and wrinkles. Done well, filler injections can have a transformative effect on the facial appearance and result in overall younger looking skin — which is why it is one of our most popular treatments.

The Art of Injecting Wrinkle Fillers
Dermal fillers have come a long way since their inception.
One of the reasons using fillers to soften mouth lines has fallen out of favour is that there was a period in which excessive use of lip fillers and dermal fillers around the mouth became fashionable. The result was a smooth complexion and skin but one that appeared bulky and did not always look natural. To avoid creating this unnatural look, judicious use of filler is required.
This is where the experience and judgement of the practitioner are critical.
The key is using the smallest amount of the transparent filler gel at just the right level within the skin to optimally correct wrinkles and reduce lines without weighing the tissue down and creating the ‘bottom heavy, smooth, but odd’ look. This takes years of experience to perfect, learning to respect the limits of the filler, and knowing when to stop.

Dermal Fillers vs Botox Treatments
When you choose from our non-surgical anti-wrinkle treatments like dermal fillers and Botox, you are getting an anti-ageing solution with minimal pain and downtime.
Botox is also known as wrinkle relaxing injections because it aims to relax the muscles in the face so that the skin and wrinkles can smooth out. Dermal fillers, on the other hand, are part of an anti-wrinkle treatment whereby hyaluronic acid is strategically injected to reduce fine lines, stimulate collagen production, and over time, deliver a rejuvenated appearance. So while fillers and Botox are both safe and effective when it comes to filling wrinkles, dermal fillers tend to have more long-lasting results than Botox treatments.
Dermal fillers are also more effective at reducing static wrinkles — the lines that are visible when the face is relaxed. Botox reduces the appearance of dynamic wrinkles, which are visible during facial movements such as squinting and frowning.
Overall, hyaluronic acid dermal fillers are better at restoring lost mass in the face and adding a youthful appearance with definition to the contours and shape of the face.
