How Long Do Dermal Fillers Last?
The amount of time that these types of fillers are going to last will depend on a variety of factors and may differ from person to person. While some types of fillers may only last for a couple of months, the results you will see from others may last for years. Our experts will work with you to ensure that you get the type of filler that is going to be right for you.
While one person may experience results that last for up to a year with certain types of dermal fillers, others who have received the same type of injectable may see their results fading more quickly. Our professionals will be able to evaluate you and give you a better idea of how long you can expect your individualized treatment to last.
The Different Types
There are different types of fillers that are going to do different things. This is why having a consultation is so important to ensure you understand exactly what to expect with each type of filler.
This type of filler is used to eliminate the appearance of what is commonly known as a “double chin.” This type of treatment is going to remove excess fat from the chin area and can improve the profile appearance. It is simply injected into that area and over time will remove that unwanted fat.
JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA XC
If you wish to add volume to your lips in a more natural manner, this type of treatment may be exactly what you are looking for. It will add volume to your lips without giving you that unnatural look and can also improve any vertical lip lines you may be unhappy with.
JUVÉDERM Ultra XC
This type of injectable treatment is used on the lips to provide more fullness, especially in those who have very thin lips. This type of treatment is going to give you ample volume in the lip area, which is perfect for those who have had their lips thin over time or who just want to add some more volume to their lips.
JUVÉDERM VOLUMA XC
If you have noticed that your cheeks aren’t as full as they used to be due to the natural aging process, this type of injectable treatment can help boost the volume in the cheek area, which can make you look younger. Many people experience a loss of volume in their cheeks and this treatment is a non-invasive way to get that volume back.
JUVÉDERM VOLLURE XC
This popular type of injectable treatment will diminish the appearance of lines and wrinkles, even ones that may be considered severe. It smooths out of the surface of the skin, providing a more youthful look.
This type of filler can be beneficial in a few different ways. It can add volume to certain areas of the face, providing a more youthful appearance, as well as smooth out wrinkles and lines on the face. It can even be used to smooth out the folds around the nose. It can also be used to enhance the appearance of the lips.
This treatment can be used to smooth out “laugh lines” and marionette lines around the mouth area. It also gives a natural look that will make the skin overall appear more youthful. This is also a great treatment because it does not alter the natural expressions of the face.
This type of injectable treatment is going to be a bit more long-lasting than other types. It stimulates the natural production of collagen that can make skin look more youthful and have more volume over time.
What to Expect During Treatment
First, you will come in for your initial consultation where it will be determined which type of filler is going to give you the most benefit.

Then, the treatment will be injected into the area you wish to have treated which does not take long. Then, you are free to go on about your day as you normally would. It is not invasive, it’s quick, and there is absolutely no downtime.
