If you’re considering dermal fillers to contour your facial features or address signs of aging, it’s important to know how long they last and how often you’ll need touch-up treatments. Understanding the longevity of dermal fillers is crucial for making informed decisions.
We’ve created a quiz that tests your knowledge of the topic and helps you make the correct choice for your aesthetic goals.
What Are Dermal Fillers?
New, specialized fillers seem to arrive every year. The days of workhorse fillers like JUVÉDERM® and Restylane® that are used for multiple areas of the face are long gone. Even though there are many more filler options than ever, their general purpose remains similar: to create a more youthful, rejuvenated appearance or enhance facial features. Our injection experts use fillers to enhance lips, cheeks, and jawlines and correct nasolabial folds.
When it comes to longevity, all dermal fillers are not created equal. Some fillers provide results that can endure for several months, while others can offer effects that last for years. Factors such as the type of filler used, the treatment area, and individual metabolism play a significant role in determining how long your results will last. Lifestyle choices such as smoking and exercise habits can also affect the durability of dermal fillers.
If you regularly engage in strenuous workouts, your increased metabolic rate can shorten the longevity of your filler results. Smoking causes the skin to age prematurely, and the constant muscle contraction when you purse your lips also contributes to the aptly named “smoker’s lines.”
