How Long Do Facial Fillers Last? A Comprehensive Guide

Dermal fillers are a popular cosmetic procedure used to reduce the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, and other signs of aging. They can also be used to add volume to areas of the face that have lost volume due to aging or other factors. But how long do facial fillers last?The answer depends on the type of filler used and where it is injected. Some dermal fillers can last up to five years, while others may only last six to twelve months.

Most dermal fillers contain hyaluronic acid, a natural compound that aids in the production of collagen and elastin. For lines and wrinkles closer to the skin, the doctor may choose a thinner product to fill the contour and soften the skin. These products can be metabolized more quickly and will last for 6 to 12 months.In areas of the face with more movement, such as the lips, for example, the constant movement of the muscles breaks down and dissolves the filler at a faster rate, and fillers tend to disappear faster in these more active areas. Like any other skin care procedure, individual results may vary.

The effects of dermal fillers can last between three months and two years.On average, facial fillers last about a year. Sometimes the results fade after six months, while other times the results last about two years. Restylane treatments usually don't take more than an hour to perform, and patients usually notice some initial improvement later that week.Although results vary by individual, for most patients, Restylane lasts about 10 months. Restylane-L, Juvederm and Belotero are dermal fillers that are commonly used for facial wrinkles, asymmetry and volume loss.

The plastic surgeon may inject an enzyme that dissolves the filler until you are satisfied with the facial contour. Depending on the type of facial fillers received, some recommend more maintenance and more frequent injections than others.Of hyaluronic acid-based fillers, larger particle fillers such as Restylane Lyft tend to last longer than smaller particle fillers such as Restylane Silk. Here is a list of areas that are usually treated with fillers in order of fill longevity from top to bottom, with 1 being the most durable and 6 the areas of shortest duration: temples, under eyes, cheeks, nasolabial folds (smile lines), lips and chin.If you start to lose volume in your face, dermal fillers can be a way to restore a youthful contour, and dermal fillers under the eyes can ease the appearance of bags and dark circles under the eyes. Once customers discuss their needs with a professional, the doctor will select the best facial filler for the client's needs.For example, filler injected into the lower part of the eyes tends to last longer than filler injected into the lips.

It is also a great option if you are looking for dermal fillers under the eyes, and can be used to smooth fine lines on the face and fill in scars. In my experience, fillers injected into the temples and under the eyes tend to last longer, while fillers injected into the lips tend to last the shortest time.In addition to the type of filler used, there are other factors that can influence the longevity of dermal filler treatments. The patented technologies used to make the fillers also affect their longevity.
