If you are considering dermal fillers to enhance or rejuvenate your face or lips, you probably have questions such as which filler is best for specific facial concerns and how long fillers last. It’s natural to want the best results when choosing a dermal filler for your face. The longevity of your results depends on the type of filler you select and the area injected.
In this post, we will discuss some of our patients’ favorite dermal fillers, what they can do, and how long they last.
This popular hyaluronic acid (HA) filler softens deep facial lines and wrinkles. The gel-like consistency is perfect for filling in nasolabial folds, the deep creases extending from the sides of your nose to the corners of your mouth. JUVÉDERM can also plump up sagging areas on your cheeks and chin.
Longevity: Expect your treatment to last up to 12 months, at which point you can consider a maintenance treatment.
This JUVÉDERM filler contains a thicker formulation and is perfect for restoring volume to the cheeks and adding definition to the chin. As you advance in years, you might notice increased sagging in your upper face. Or maybe you’ve always wished you had a stronger-looking chin. JUVÉDERM VOLUMA adds volume to those areas, giving your cheeks or chin more prominence.
Longevity: VOLUMA lasts up to 1 year in the chin and up to 2 years in the cheeks, depending on how quickly your body metabolizes the filler. It’s best to schedule a touch-up treatment when you see your results beginning to fade.
This is another HA filler that can give you soft and natural-looking results. Restylane improves moderate to severe facial lines and wrinkles, including nasolabial folds. It’s perfect for plumping thin lips and is approved by the FDA for patients over 21.
Longevity: You can expect your treatment for nasolabial folds to last up to 18 months.
Adding volume to the cheeks and softening age lines on the hands and face, Restylane also smooths deeper facial lines, such as nasolabial folds and marionette lines. It can even improve mild scarring.
Longevity: You can expect your Restylane Lyft results to last up to 12 months when injected into the cheeks. It lasts up to 6 months in the back of the hands. Depending on your treatment area, you should plan a follow-up treatment within 4 to 9 months.
This versatile filler is great for lines and wrinkles on the lips and face. BELOTERO is a HA filler that helps with collagen production to build more supple, youthful-looking skin.
Longevity: This filler can last up to 6 months or more.
Bellafill’s polymethyl methacrylate (PMMA) microspheres stimulate long-term collagen growth for more youthful-looking and radiant skin. You can use this filler for nasolabial folds and acne-related scarring.
Longevity: Bellafill is known for its long-lasting results, smoothing wrinkles for up to 5 years and improving the appearance of acne scars for up to 1 year.
Other Rejuvenating Injectables
While fillers smooth out static wrinkles on your face, most are not effective for treating expression lines. If you want to improve those dynamic wrinkles such as frown lines, DAXXIFY™ is a neuromodulator that can also give you long-lasting results. It lasts 6 to 9 months compared to BOTOX® Cosmetic’s 3- to 4-month duration.
