How Long Do Dermal Fillers Last

Are you thinking of getting dermal fillers to counteract signs of facial aging?  Wrinkles, sagging cheeks, and thin lips are some of the telltale signs of facial aging that can be addressed with dermal fillers.  But how long do dermal fillers last?

What Are Dermal Fillers?

Dermal fillers are cosmetic injectables that rejuvenate the skin and create a more youthful appearance.  They can be used to reduce facial lines and wrinkles, and restore volume to the soft tissues to improve facial balance and symmetry. 

How Long Do Dermal Fillers Last?

The longevity of a dermal filler varies depending on the individual properties of the filler.

Hyaluronic acid (HA) fillers such as Juvederm and Restylane are among the most popular dermal fillers now available.  HA is a substance that occurs naturally in the body and keeps the skin hydrated.  When HA fillers are injected into the skin they attract water.  The added moisture hydrates the skin, helping to fill in wrinkles and fine lines.    

HA fillers can last anywhere from 6 months to 2 years. The material gradually breaks down over time, and the particles are absorbed by the body.  

Other dermal fillers include those made of calcium hydroxyapatite (CaHA) and  Poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA).  Radiesse is a CaHA filler that typically lasts 12 months, and  Sculptra is a PLLA filler that lasts for approximately 2 years. 

Radiesse and Sculptra are collagen stimulators, so they help to promote the body’s natural production of collagen.  The collagen remodeling process takes place over several months, so the effects are long-lasting.

Can Dermal Fillers Improve Confidence?

Are you unhappy with the lines and wrinkles on your face?  Dermal fillers can smooth those wrinkles away and revitalize your skin.  There’s no doubt that dermal fillers can enhance your attractiveness and refresh your appearance, but can they also improve confidence?

Reverse signs of aging with dermal fillers

Wrinkles, creases, sunken cheeks, and under-eye bags can make you look older than you are, but dermal fillers can address these concerns and dramatically improve your appearance.  Dermal fillers can fill in wrinkles and creases, augment the cheeks and lips, and refine the jawline, in order to restore a youthful appearance. 

Can dermal fillers improve confidence?

There does seem to be a connection between dermal fillers and confidence. Many patients admit that they feel more attractive and satisfied with life after treatment with fillers.  

Dermal fillers have a confidence-boosting effect because they reverse tell-tale signs of aging that make people feel self-conscious about how they look.  Fillers can improve overall body image, and people generally feel their best when they look their best.  

How dermal fillers work

When it comes to facial rejuvenation, hyaluronic acid (HA) based fillers such as Juvederm and Restylane, are the most popular choice.  HA is a naturally occurring substance in the body that keeps the skin looking youthful and vibrant.  

The dermal filler is injected into the area of the face being targeted, and the HA molecules attract and retain water. This plumps the skin, and the smoothing and contouring effects of the filler revitalize the face.
