How Long Do Dermal Fillers Last?
March 19, 2019 | 3 minute read
If you’re a woman in the Houston area who has started to notice the telltale signs of aging on your face, such as loss of volume in your cheeks and lips and wrinkles around your nose and mouth, dermal fillers may be just the thing to restore your youthful appearance. At ReNew You MD Medical Spa, inside Town and Country Plastic Surgeons, Dr. Yarish has assembled a certified and knowledgeable medical staff to help his patients fight signs of aging through non-invasive procedures. Many women who are considering dermal fillers to improve their aging face, want to know how long the filler will last.
It is important to note that every dermal filler is different, and every dermal filler responds differently from patient to patient. How long your results last all depends on the placement of the dermal filler, the type of filler used and how many injections you will need for your specific problem area.
The Juvederm® dermal fillers are very popular because they have a decreased chance of side effects. These fillers are made up of hyaluronic acid, which provides immediate results for Houston patients. How long this dermal filler lasts will depend on which specific product is used:
• Juvederm® Ultra XC, Juvederm® Ultra Plus XC, and Juvederm® Volbella usually last about one year.
• Juvederm® Vollure will last between 12 and 18 months for most patients.
• Juvederm® Voluma can last a long as two years.
Restylane® fillers also use hyaluronic acid, just like Juvederm®, giving Houston residents immediate results. Again, how long this dermal filler will last depend on the patient and which product is used:
• Restylane®-L usually lasts between four and a half months to nine months, depending on the treatment area.
• Restylane® Defyne and Restylane® Refyne will last for 12 months for most patients.
• Restylane® Lyft can last for 12 months or more.
• Restylane® Silk will last for about 6 months.
Sculptra® is not made from hyaluronic acid, but instead, it is made of poly-L-lactic acid. This type of dermal filler is meant to correct and build up over time providing Houston men and women with longer lasting results. On average, Sculptra® dermal fillers last for 2 years.
Radiesse®, which is another dermal filler Dr. Yarish’s staff recommends for patients who want their results to increase over time and be long-lasting, is made up of calcium hydroxylapatite. This substance is naturally found in your body and stimulates natural collagen production. Radiesse® dermal fillers can last between 18 and 24 months.
Bellafill dermal filler uses polymethyl methacrylate (PMMA) microspheres that are suspended within a base of smooth collagen gel. Houston patients see immediate results, and as an added benefit, the body uses this base to create its own natural collagen development. Bellafill® results can last for 5 years!
