Deep injections can last up to 12 months and the newest products on the market can last up to two years. Like any other skin care procedure, individual results may vary. One of the most common questions we hear at the Mabrie Facial Institute in San Francisco is “How long do fillers last? To understand the answer, we need to consider more than just the physical or chemical properties of products. Results last 10 to 12 months on average.
Although we can't tell you exactly how long your chosen filling will last, there are some general guidelines that will give you an idea of what to expect. For example, Juvederm Volbella is a lip filler that will enhance your mouth for up to a year. Juvederm Voluma is a long-lasting filler that can fill the cheeks for up to twenty-four months. However, hyaluronic acid is a biodegradable component that, over time, is metabolized by the body.
Lower quality hyaluronic acid products can last only 3 to 6 months. But Juvederm and Restylane products can last up to 24 months with maintenance treatments, the specific longevity of each product depends on the formulation and treatment area. Some of the fillers, such as Juvederm Vollure and Restylane Kysse, are specifically designed to improve the contour of the lips. For example, 90% of people who used Juvederm Voluma were satisfied with the results of this filling after half a year.
While specific formulations may vary from product to product, all Juvederm and Restylane fillers have the same active ingredient hyaluronic acid. Some of the most popular brands of biodegradable hyaluronic acid-based fillers include Juvederm and Restylane. For example, you can use a dermal filler such as Juvederm Volbella to correct asymmetrical lips and a product like Juvederm Voluma to fill hollow cheeks. Juvederm and Restylane are currently the most durable and long-lasting dermal fillers on the market.
