Juvederm and Restylane fillers are currently the most durable and long-lasting dermal fillers on the market. Depending on the composition of the filler itself, most fillers can last from 8 to 12 months. However, the longest lasting facial filler is Sculptra, as it stimulates collagen production in the body for longer lasting and effective results. Other fillers such as Restylane and Juvederm rank second, depending on the patient's needs.
During the first few months after the injection, fillers begin to gradually degrade. But the visible results remain the same because the fillers absorb water. At approximately the midpoint of the expected duration of fillings, you will begin to notice a decrease in the volume of the filling. Lip augmentation with fillers can last up to 12 months or longer with multiple treatments.
Usually, 3 treatments may be needed to get the desired result because the filler used in the first pair of treatments can be compressed. Restylane, Restylane Silk and JUVÉDERM are popular fillers for lip enhancement. Restylane Kysse is an exciting new option that offers natural movement and expression, along with results that last up to 12 months. For McLean, VA, there are 3 dermal fillers that last longer: Juvederm Voluma, Radiesse and Sculptra.
Radiesse is a long-lasting dermal filler that contours, lifts and plumps the cheeks. The results of this injection last approximately 15 months. If you opt for this injection, we strongly recommend that you come after seven months for a touch-up treatment. These three facial fillers can last from one year to two years, depending on the patient's lifestyle and the area filled.
While it may not be the “superior dermal filler” (which can only be determined on a case-by-case basis), Sculptra far outperforms other dermal fillers in how long its results last. There are other factors that contribute to the duration of dermal fillers, such as lifestyle and area of injection, but in general there are three different periods of time that dermal fillers retain their effectiveness.
