Dermal fillers are gel-like substances that are placed via injection under the surface of the skin to help give you a more youthful look. No matter if you’re looking to minimize wrinkles or increase the volume in your cheeks, there are fillers that can help. But, you will need to come back when your fillers start to fade. Keep reading to learn more about fillers and how long they last.
Two of the most popular fillers on the market are Hyaluronic Acid and Calcium Hydroxylapatite.
Calcium Hydroxylapatite works beneath the skin by boosting collagen, which lifts and plumps the skin. Calcium Hydroxylapatite fillers are often used to increase volume in the cheeks, as it adds a subtle lift to the skin. This filler can last in the skin from one year to a year and a half.
Poly-L- lactic acid fillers also stimulate collagen production to help give you a plump, youthful look. This filler requires time up-front, and many patients require three to four separate injections, around four weeks apart. Results can last more than two years, which makes it totally worth it!
Hyaluronic acid fillers are also commonly used to increase volume in cheeks, lips, and other parts of the face. They successfully diminish smile lines and other wrinkles that are deep-set in the face. Many filler brands use Hyaluronic acid, and how long they last will depend on which you select and how your body reacts to them. You can expect your results to last from six months to two years.
