What Happened To My Fillers?
- Posted on: Mar 15 2019
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. Each type of filler will have specific expected timelines and places where they are best suited.
The Type of Fillers
Compared to Restylane, Juvederm lasts a little longer. Both fillers contain hyaluronic acid, but Restylane lasts six to nine months, while Juvederm can last from nine to 12 months. This is because Juvederm has a higher concentration of hyaluronic acid.
But, there are other factors that may lead you to choose one filler over another. Some patients report that Juvederm settles in more smoothly following their treatment, with less puffiness. However, there are areas, such as the under eyes, where Restylane is preferred because it doesn’t attract as much water as Juvederm, which creates more puffiness.
Where Your Fillers Are
Placement will affect how long your fillers last, too. If you have fillers injected in a place that gets a lot of movement, it may cause your fillers to break down a little more quickly. Injections to the lips will wear out a little faster than those to the nasolabial folds, for example. Certain HA fillers, such as VOLUMA, are formulated to last longer, but are usually only recommended in certain areas, such as the cheeks.
