Does Dermal Filler Last Over a Year?

Are you looking for a safe and effective way to get a more youthful glow in your face? Dermal fillers are a great way to do so. These injectables can instantly give you a more hydrated, youthful appearance with little to no pain.

This so called “liquid facelift” gives your features a plump, voluminous appearance. But people have a few questions. Does filler last over a year? What are the risks? 

Dermal Fillers

Most dermal fillers are created from hyaluronic acid. This substance occurs naturally in the skin. Filler is a great way to hydrate the skin and fill in wrinkles.

But the plumping effect does fade over time. Because it occurs naturally in the body, the body slowly breaks it down until none is left. With most fillers, this takes six-to-12 months. Some do last as long as 24 months though. As the hyaluronic acid is broken down, wrinkles slowly reemerge and need to be retreated.

Long Lasting Results

The lifespan of dermal fillers varies. Fillers like Restylane-L, Juvéderm, and Belotero last six months or less. Restylane Silk, Juvéderm and Volbella can last for six-to-12 months.

Some fillers like Restylane Lyft, Restylane Defyne, Restylane Refyne, Juvéderm, Voluma, Radiesse and Sculptra can last up to two years. Your provider will discuss the options available based on your treatment area, and desired results.

Protecting Your Filler

There are several techniques that can help you increase the lifespan of your dermal fillers. These include:

  • Vampire Facelift. Adding platelet-rich plasma to your filler treatment can enhance your body’s own collagen product, promote health and longevity, and prolong your dermal filler results. 
  • Minimize UV Exposure. Overexposure to ultraviolet light is one of the most common causes of skin damage. Consistent skin protection can help you maintain your results after any skin care treatment. 
  • Consistent Skin Care. A regular skin care routine that moisturizes and protects your skin can enhance your results.
  • Avoid Stress. Stress accelerates the aging process. While it is a part of life, minimizing your stress levels can have incredibly positive results on your body.
