We understand that men and women considering dermal fillers to fill in lost facial volume or address fine lines and wrinkles want to know how long their injections will last. Although there is no one-size-fits-all answer to that question, on a very basic level facial fillers tend to last at least 6-9 months.* Some facial fillers are designed to last longer. Additionally, external factors can impact the longevity and how soon you may desire another injection.
Results May Be Dependent on the Amount and Type of Filler Used
One of the first, and perhaps most obvious reasons a dermal filler may last longer for one patient compared to another patient, is the specific product and volume used. Dr. Sood considers a variety of factors to determine the type of facial filler and how many syringes he recommends. Dr. Sood uses his professionally trained eye and expertise to customize a plan for each individual patient.
Results Can Vary Based on the Degree of Hollowing or Wrinkling
Dermal fillers can produce amazing results on a patient’s face that can be seen immediately. But, in instances where you have a high degree of facial hollowing or wrinkling, it is possible that injectables may not be the only option available to help you reach your goals and desires. Conversely, if you’re young and just beginning to show signs of facial aging, you may not need as volumizing a product or fewer syringes and are likely to see results that last longer because your problem areas are more subtle. Everyone is unique.
Understanding Your Personalized Treatment Plan
Ultimately, the key to knowing how long your dermal fillers will last depends upon how well you follow the personalized treatment plan that Dr. Sood has uniquely created for you. First, by knowing which filler or fillers will be used during your procedure, you will have a better idea of how long each target area will maintain results since each filler works for a different length of time. Second, by having routine maintenance performed you will be able to guesstimate how long each injection will last, based on your previous experience. Ultimately, an open line of communication with Dr. Sood is the best way for you to know how long your results will last, and how often you need follow-up treatments. As opposed to allowing the product to fully deplete, a staggered treatment plan seems to have the best outcome so you always look refreshed!
