Which Dermal Filler Lasts the Longest?

Dermal fillers are a popular cosmetic procedure used to reduce wrinkles, add volume, and restore skin to its soft and supple appearance. Juvederm and Restylane are two of the most popular dermal fillers on the market, both of which are formulated from hyaluronic acid (HA). Depending on the composition of the filler, 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.

Juvederm and Restylane are families of hyaluronic acid fillers with numerous possible formulations. Each collection has numerous products that meet different cosmetic needs. Some of the fillers, such as Juvederm Vollure and Restylane Kysse, are specifically designed to improve the lip contour. And some, like Juvederm Voluma and Restylane Lyft, smooth out wrinkles and add facial volume.

Most hyaluronic acid fillers, indicated for the correction of moderate to severe facial wrinkles, usually last from 6 to 12 months. These include Juvederm, Restylane and Belotero. The most popular dermal fillers available are Restylane and Juvederm. Both are formulated from a substance found naturally in the body called hyaluronic acid (HA).

HA works by binding to water molecules and helping to restore moisture and volume to the skin. Over time, the body breaks down this HA, making touch-ups necessary to maintain results. However, the amount of time it takes to break down HA varies depending on the formula of the dermal filler. Because Juvederm is made of a higher concentration of HA than Restylane, it tends to last longer. While the strongest Restylane filler, Restylane Lyft, lasts up to a year, Juvederm Voluma can last up to 2 years, making it the longest lasting temporary dermal filler available.

This is especially impressive when you consider that Restylane and Juvederm Ultra XC last between 6 and 9 months, and Juvederm and Restylane Silk last between 4 and 6 months. It is important to note that the filling does not last all that time and then immediately disappears. Therefore, patients usually return in half that time for treatment. Due to its main ingredient, Restylane has one of the most versatile product ranges on the facial filler market. Dermal fillers have become one of the most popular facial cosmetic procedures performed, in part due to the variety of treatment options available to patients. These three facial fillers can last from one year to two years, depending on the patient's lifestyle and the area filled. Another possible explanation for why hyaluronic acid fillers like Juvederm work so well is the natural regrowth of collagen combined with fillers that provide more supple, elastic and clearer skin.

During your consultation, you will receive the knowledge and professional guidance you need to determine what type of fillers will best complement your facial features. Pharmacy skin care products do not completely reduce facial wrinkles or restore volume loss, so some people use dermal fillers. Restylane is among the most effective product lines in the facial filler market due to its active ingredient. It is a facial filler based on hyaluronic acid that focuses on the smile and the lines of the lips around the mouth and nose. Since collagen is so useful for increasing facial volume, a filler product that increases its production remarkably improves the skin and face.
