Which Fillers Last The Longest?
- Posted on: Mar 15 2019
Dermal fillers are gel-like substances that are injected under the surface of the skin to help give you the results you want. Whether you’re looking to minimize wrinkles or add volume to your lips, there are fillers that can help with that. But, you will need to come back when your fillers start to deplete. Keep reading to learn more about fillers and how long they last.
How often will I need to come back for more?
A few things will affect the fillers you have. The type of filler you have and what part of the body they’re injected in will affect how long they last. Keep reading to learn more.
Fillers that utilize Hyaluronic acid give volume to the face (often used in cheeks and lips), and they’re also a great option to help diminish smile lines and deep-set wrinkles. Many different filler brands use Hyaluronic acid, and how long they last in your skin will depend on the specific one you choose. Usually you can expect your results from this filler to last from six months to two years.
Calcium Hydroxylapatite fillers boost collagen in the skin, which then lifts the skin and adds volume that has been lost. This type of filler is often used to boost volume and lift in cheeks and minimize the appearance of the wrinkles that form from your nose to your mouth (or the nasolabial folds). Calcium Hydroxylapatite fillers can last anywhere from a year to a year and a half.
The provider you visit can affect how long your fillers last, whether they’re located in the face or another part of the body. If your provider isn’t very careful, or unfamiliar with certain fillers, they may inject the fillers too low or too high, leading to poor results and quicker loss of your fillers. That’s why we recommend finding an experienced provider that you trust.
