Most of the time, HA-based fillers (Juvederm, Restylane) last 6 to 18 months. In some people, they last a little more or less. Some other fillers, such as Sculptra, can last 2 years, but it's usually not the first choice for lip augmentation. 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 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. During the first few months after injection, fillers begin to gradually degrade. But the visible results remain the same because the fillers absorb water.
But around the midpoint of the expected lifespan of the fillings, you'll start to notice a decrease in fill volume. Lip augmentation with fillers can last up to 12 months or longer with multiple treatments. Usually, 3 treatments may be needed to get the desired result because the filler used in the first two treatments can be compressed. Restylane, Restylane Silk and JUVÉDERM are popular lip enhancer fillers.
Restylane Kysse is an exciting new option that offers natural movement and expression, along with results that last up to 12 months. Some dermal fillers have been studied to last about two years. The three fillers that tend to last the longest are Restylane Lyft, Restylane Defyne, Restylane Refyne, Juvederm, Voluma, Radiesse and Sculptra. In the past year, Dr. Gavin Chan has discovered something about dermal fillers that has “surprised” him regarding their longevity. That's why he recommends this type of filler if you haven't had a dermal filler before and aren't sure what to expect.
They are afraid that, over time, their skin will sag after receiving the filler and that they will be tied to injections for life. Dermal fillers involve injecting a product, usually hyaluronic acid, into the face to restore or improve facial features. In the past, Dr. Gavin Chan and his team would have agreed with the patient and proceeded to inject more filler into the lips. In addition to the type of filler used, there are other factors that can influence the longevity of dermal filler treatments.
Semi-permanent fillers are made from products such as Sculptra which stimulates collagen production in the injected area. With more people choosing to undergo dermal filler treatments there is a misconception that “the more dermal fillers are injected, the better”. The plastic surgeon can inject an enzyme that dissolves the filler until you are satisfied with your facial contour. This pioneering research began when it became clear that patients who had undergone treatment with tear dermal filler a few years ago were returning from follow-up treatments with dermal filler. Dr. Mobin Master points out that dermal filler can last much longer than dermal filler brands say.
According to the American Board of Cosmetic Surgery, dermal fillers consist of gel-like substances such as hyaluronic acid calcium hydroxylapatite and poly-L-lactic acid which the doctor injects under your skin. Gavin Chan over the past 12 months has changed how all cosmetic doctors and cosmetic nurses in his clinics inject dermal fillers. Some brands of dermal fillers estimate that fillers only last 6 to 12 months so Dr. Gavin Chan decided to refer his patients for magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) to his colleague Dr.
Mobin Master (MBBS FRANZCR). Due to the low maintenance factor of most fillers on the market some of the worst fears people have about prolonged use of filler are unfounded. In conclusion, dermal fillers can last anywhere from 6 months up to 2 years depending on several factors such as type of filler used area injected lifestyle habits and individual metabolism rate.
