There are many different types of fillers on the market, which can all be tailored to what you’re looking for. If you want more volume in your lips, there is a perfectly-suited filler for that. If you want to smooth wrinkles, there are fillers that are designed to rest under the skin and give you a more youthful, plump look. Fillers can even be used to treat certain cosmetic issues in the nose, which can save you from a nose job in some situations.
How often will I need to come back for more?
To keep it simple, it all depends on what fillers you have, and where they are placed. These factors will influence how long your fillers will last, as well as your specific biology.
The Type of Fillers
Consider what you’re looking for, and be open to suggestions when you come in for your consultation. Hyaluronic Acid fillers like Restylane lasts six to nine months, while Juvederm can last from nine to 12 months. Juvederm has a higher concentration of hyaluronic acid and, though you may be tempted to go with Juvederm, another filler might be better suited to what you’re looking for.
Where Your Fillers Are
Where they are placed will affect how long your fillers last, as well. If you have fillers injected in a place that experiences a lot of movement, it may cause your fillers to break down at a faster pace. Fillers in the lips will generally wear out a little faster than those in the forehead, for example.
To make things slightly more complex, the provider you use may affect how long your fillers last. If your provider isn’t very skilled, they may place the fillers too low or too high, which can lead to fillers deteriorating too quickly. We recommend finding the best provider and doing your research before you jump into getting fillers.
