At Robertson Wellness and Aesthetics, we use hyaluronic acid dermal fillers. These use a material naturally present in the body to add volume, increase plumpness, and enhance contours. This increased fullness looks natural and youthful, but how long does it last?
How Do Dermal Fillers Work?
Dermal fillers made of hyaluronic acid are injected under the skin in areas of mild or deep wrinkles, areas where the skin has lost its natural fullness, or areas that a person would like to enhance with volume.
Hyaluronic acid in the skin attracts and locks in moisture, making skin look more plumped and hydrated. The manufacturers of these fillers have produced a number of products, each with a different hyaluronic acid formula. This allows your provider to choose the best formula for the specific area of your face. Commonly treated areas include:
- Hollow cheeks
- Nasolabial folds
- Lines around the mouth
- Lines and wrinkles
Most parts of the face have a corresponding dermal filler, so make sure to ask during your consultation about all of the areas you want to be treated.
People do not need to wait for lines and wrinkles before they try dermal fillers, however. Because the results fade away completely if not maintained, younger people interested in lip augmentation or facial contouring can test out their results without permanent commitments.
How Long Do Dermal Fillers Last?
Because dermal fillers come in several formulas, they also break down in the body at different rates. Soft, flexible fillers in an area like the lips may last six months, while a firmer filler in a less mobile area can last up to 18 months in some cases. The average time is six months to one year.
What Will My Results Be Like?
Many people see results immediately after the injections, but results will become clearly visible within a few days and continue to improve for a few weeks. Hyaluronic acid continues to absorb moisture into the skin, enhancing your results.
You will see increased volume and fullness in the treated area. Scars, lines, and wrinkles get lifted from beneath to make them less visible, and areas that looked hollow now look full and vibrant. For those looking for increased lip volume, you will see soft, plumped lips that look natural but better.
Am I a Good Candidate for Dermal Fillers?
If you have lines and wrinkles you want to get rid of, or if you have areas of the face that need more volume and shape, you may be a good candidate. Hyaluronic acid fillers have an extensive safety record and are among the most popular cosmetic treatments.
