Hi Violet, thank you for the question.

Typically treatment with fillers for wrinkles are not directly affected with weight loss however the underlying fat in our faces provides support to the overlying skin so ultimately with weight loss (and specifically fat loss in the face) one looses the support and with movement wrinkles (folding of the skin) may be seen.
