How Long Do Facial Fillers Last

How Long Do Fillers Last On The Face?

There are a lot of options out there that can help you achieve your skin goals, but for longer-lasting and visible effects, facial fillers are a great option.One of the inevitable and unfortunate side effects of aging is that skin loses its elasticity. As you age, the body’s natural ability to produce collagen and elastin decreases, and that is when you start to see fine lines and wrinkles and thin, loose and sagging skin.

There are plenty of health and wellness products on the market that help increase the amount of collagen and elastin to support our skin, as well as hair, nails and even digestive health too. You can collagen supplements in liquid, powder or capsule form; use topical skin care products that improve the appearance of the skin. However, most of the time, with over-the-counter products, it takes dedication to adding them to your routine over a long period of time to see the effects.


What Do Facial Fillers Do

For more prompt results, there are options for non-invasive skin rejuvenation treatments that help increase collagen and elastin the skin to address all of those side effects of aging. Although these treatments may show more immediate results, many times the effect does not last longer than a few weeks.

When you want fast, longer-lasting results, facial fillers are the answer. This minimally invasive skincare treatment can help plump the skin, smooth out fine lines and wrinkles, and restore volume. Facial fillers consist of a blend of substances that is injected between the surface of the skin. The most common thing found in fillers is hyaluronic acid, which is also commonly found in topical skin care products too. Hyaluronic acid supports the body’s natural production of collagen and elastin, which contributes to youthful, bright, beautiful and smooth skin.


Benefits of Dermal Facial Fillers

There are a lot of benefits to facial balancing with fillers, one of the main being that the results will last much longer. Some can last for around 6 to 12 months, but there are others that can last for years. Of course, as with all skin and health procedures, individual results will vary. There are a lot of factors that come into play when determining how long fillers will last. It depends on the type of filler, where it is injected on your face, how much is actually used, and how fast the body metabolizes the filler. Getting touch-ups is typically highly recommended after because it will help the results last longer.
