How Long Do Fillers Last?
The Longevity Of Facial Fillers
The longevity of dermal filler procedures depends on a variety of factors. The product used, the location of the injection, the individual’s activity level, and the metabolic rate of the filler all play key roles in how long treatment will stay effective.
The dermal filler Restylane® uses hyaluronic gel and provides volume and fullness to the skin that lasts up to nine months. It is made of a non-animal, stabilized-formed substance and provides volume and fullness to the skin. Keep in mind that the fillers are not permanent and will not last forever. Therefore, to maintain the quality of your injections I recommend returning for touch-up injections when results begin to decline.
Another dermal filler that I offer is Hylaform®, which is also made up of hyaluronic gel. Hylaform mimics the skin’s natural hydration effects, and holds moisture in the skin for about three months. As mentioned with Restylane, the best way to maintain your improved results are to return for touch-ups when you feel the quality of your results are fading.
RadianceFN consists of calcium hydroxyl apatite microspheres. Because calcium occurs naturally in the body, RadianceFN will not cause an adverse reaction. This filler is gradually replaced by your body’s own tissue over time and lasts three to five years. Like other fillers, I advise you to return to my office when you notice your results begin to dissipate.
I also have a few tips to prevent wrinkles from forming post treatment; using sunscreen not only protects your face from the sun’s harmful rays, but also assists your other skin care products as they stimulate your new look to produce collagen. A regular application of facial cleanser and certain moisturizers can help maintain your overall appearance as well.
Combining Botox® injections with dermal fillers can also benefit you in preventing wrinkles in the long run. Incorporating Botox injections into your overall cosmetic treatment regimen will help make the dermal filler last longer, giving it more time to stimulate the skin’s own collagen response.
Perhaps the biggest factor is the quality and experience of medical care provided during your dermal filler procedure. At Diva Medical Group I use my skill, experience and understanding to give you the youthful look you want while paying special attention to the safety of your procedure.
