How Long Do Dermal Fillers Last?


No matter how many age-defying moisturizers and wrinkle creams you use, it’s simply impossible to avoid the visible signs of aging. As you get older, your facial tissues thin out, resulting in volume loss that leads to unsightly lines, folds, and creases, and adds years to your appearance.

If you’ve done some research on how to restore the taut, smooth skin of your youth, you may have seen how dermal fillers can help turn back the hands of time. But with the number of options available, how do you choose the right ones for your beauty concerns, and how long will they last?

Great questions! Take a look below for more information on the different types of dermal fillers, and how long you can expect to enjoy their spectacular results.

Natural vs synthetic dermal fillers

The amount of time your dermal filler will last depends on the type of product that’s used. There are two broad categories of dermal fillers available: natural and synthetic. Fillers derived from natural substances, such as the hyaluronic acid found in Restylane, are absorbed by the body over time. Therefore, they last for a shorter duration than synthetic fillers, such as Radiesse, which are designed to stay in your body for good.

Even though your body doesn’t absorb synthetic fillers, they’re not a permanent solution for wrinkles. As your body continues to age, the effects of the dermal fillers will eventually become less pronounced. Whether you opt for a synthetic or natural filler, you’ll likely want follow-ups to keep your skin looking young.
