Anti-aging efforts can be subtle or a little more dramatic. When it comes to dermal fillers, they tend to sit more in the subtle side of things, especially when you compare them to an invasive surgery like a facelift. Dermal fillers can help smooth skin, give a little more volume, and make you feel more confident. But, they will need to be replenished.

How often will I need to come back for more?
The fillers you have and what part of the body they’re located in will affect how long they last. Keep reading to understand a little more.
Fillers that use Hyaluronic acid will give volume to cheeks and lips, and they’re also a great filler to help diminish smile lines and wrinkles. Many different filler brands use Hyaluronic acid, and how long they last in your skin will depend on which one you select. Generally, you can expect your results from this type of filler to last from six months to two years.
- Calcium Hydroxylapatite fillers work by boosting collagen in the skin, which then lifts the skin and adds volume. This type of filler is often used to increase the volume and lift in cheeks and minimize the appearance of the wrinkles that form from your nose to your mouth (or the nasolabial folds). This filler can last anywhere from a year to a year and a half.
- Poly-L- lactic acid also stimulates collagen production to help restore volume to areas that have lost it. This filler requires a little more time, since most patients will need three to four separate injections, around four weeks apart. Thankfully though, results sometimes can last more than two years!
