How Long Do Dermal Fillers Last?

· Blog · No Comments

Many women and men seek dermal fillers to counteract signs of aging, such as wrinkles, folds, thinning lips, sunken cheeks, under eye circles, and volume-depleted hands.

Although results from injectable treatments are typically immediate and impressive, they are temporary. Knowing that dermal filler effects gradually fade over time, many patients ask: How long do dermal fillers last?

To answer this question, it’s important to consider each patient’s concerns, goals, and the type of product used.

Here’s what you need to know about the longevity of hyaluronic acid fillers and collagen stimulators.

How Long Do Dermal Fillers Last?

Juvederm

The Juvederm family of dermal fillers is manufactured by Allergan, the company that’s also responsible for Botox. Composed of hyaluronic acid, Juvederm fillers offer smooth application and instant plumping effects.

Up to 12 Months

Juvederm Ultra XC for added volume to lips and around the mouth.
Juvederm Ultra Plus for correction of deep wrinkles and nasolabial folds.
Juvederm Volbella for subtle lip enhancement and smoothing of vertical lip lines.

Up to 12-18 Months

Juvederm Vollure for facial rejuvenation and improvement of mild to moderate wrinkles and folds in the lower face.

Up to 24 Months

Juvederm Voluma for cheek and mid-face augmentation and lifting of lower face and jowls.

Restylane

Restylane is also a hyaluronic acid filler designed to produce immediate volumizing and hydrating effects when injected into soft tissue.

Up to 6 Months

Restylane Silk for subtle lip enhancement, correction of perioral lines, and reduction of under eye circles.

Up to 4-9 Months

Restylane for moderate to severe facial wrinkles and folds and lip augmentation.

Up to 12 Months

Restylane Lyft for added volume and lifting to sunken cheeks as well as volume restoration in the hands.

12 Months or Longer

Restylane Refyne and Defyne for smoothing of mild to moderate wrinkles and lines as well as moderate to severe smile lines.

Collagen Stimulators

Sculptra and Radiesse are two dermal fillers that restore facial structure by stimulating the growth of new collagen. Accordingly, their results improve over time.

While Sculptra is composed of poly-L-lactic acid, Radiesse is made of calcium hydroxylapatite microspheres. These products are synthetic and tend to last longer than hyaluronic acid fillers like Juvederm and Restylane.

Up to 18-24 Months

Radiesse for treatment of lines and folds in the lower face as well as volume restoration in the hands.

Up to 2 Years

Sculptra for correction of deep wrinkles around the nose, mouth, and chin.
