How long do fillers last?

Here are honest answers to how long do dermal fillers last.

The question most people want to know is ‘how long will my dermal fillers last?’.

This is not a simple to answer. We have heard that the standard is between 6 to 12 months, and with some of our newer fillers, they will last even longer.  This does need to be covered a little better.

Most of you know by now that the standard or approved answer to the recommendation by manufacturers is somewhere between the 6 to 18 month mark and up to 5 years depending on the type of dermal filler you purchase. However studies tell us that you can still have some of the original filler (hyaluronic acid) which can linger in the injected areas even up to a year later.

The filler is affected by how much correction or injections (syringes) you have. When a single syringe will do wonders when specified in a targeted area, the same syringe that is spread over an extensive area will cause a minimalist effect elsewhere. The desired results will not appear to last as long.

For example if you are in your 60’s or 70’s, an application of a single syringe may have some improvement, but with profound wrinkles and the need for support or lift the syringe of filler may only help a little. Whereas a younger person say 20’s or early thirties they may only need the 1 syringe. This is because their skin still has support and not sagging or very many wrinkles. So depending on your age, wrinkles and elasticity of your skin you are given a consultation. A clinician will  recommend what and how many dermal filler syringes would help you achieve the desired affects you would be satisfied with.

Here are the recommended lasting effects of the dermal fillers we currently provide. Always remember that these are just estimates which can be shorter or longer than described.
  • Juvederm Ultra Plus – 12 months, with a possible touch-up at 6–9 months
