How Long Will Fillers Last?
- Posted on: Mar 15 2019
No matter if you love to know everything about a treatment or if you want to go in first to try it out, there are a few things you should know about fillers before you give them a try. One of the most important things is understanding that fillers aren’t permanent. Keep reading to learn more.
How often will I need to come back for more fillers?
It all depends on what kind of filler you get, and where the fillers are located in your face (or other parts of the body). Keep reading to understand a little more about fillers.
The Filler Type
Hyaluronic acid fillers work to give volume to cheeks and lips, and they’re also great to help diminish smile lines or other deep wrinkles. Many fillers use Hyaluronic acid, and the timeline will vary depending on which you use. Generally, expect your results to last from 6 to 24 months.
Calcium Hydroxylapatite increases collagen in the skin, adding lift and plumpness to the skin.
It’s best used to increase volume of the cheeks, reduce appearance of nasolabial folds, and even to smooth the appearance of the back of hands. This filler type can last from 12 to 18 months.
Poly-L- lactic acid also stimulates collagen production to restore facial volume loss. This filler is best for subtle, natural results to help with anti-aging efforts. This filler is a little more time-intensive, as most patients require 3-4 separate injections, about 4 weeks apart. Thankfully though, results can last more than 2 years!
Consider this: injections in the lips will wear out a little faster than those to the nasolabial folds, because your lips move a lot more in a day! Movement will naturally cause fillers to deplete more quickly.
