The face starts to lack volume and appears aged with deeper nasolabial folds, unaesthetic lines, a deeper fold, the lips start to thin, and turning down the corners of the lips. Hyaluronic acid fillers are injected right underneath these folds to replace the volume lost which creates a younger look in the face by replenishing your body's natural production of hyaluronic acid, which diminishes as you age.
How long do dermal fillers last??
Dermal filler treatments typically take 20-40 minutes and the amount of dermal filler needed will depend on volume loss and the areas you would like to restore to its natural beauty. You will see results immediately after treatment.
The results from most injectable fillers are temporary; commonly lasting from a few months to about a year and depends on the type of filler used.
How long the effects of dermal fillers will last depends on the product, the area of treatment, and the patient.
To maintain your results, your cosmetic surgeon will simply repeat treatment, adjusting the amount and techniques as necessary to ensure optimal results.
Hyaluronic acid fillers tend to be the most temporary option, and therefore are often recommended for first-time filler patients.
These will typically last from 6 to 18 months. Injections to the lips will wear out a little faster than those to the nasolabial folds.
