How Long Do Fillers Last?

Fillers have become a go-to for those looking to soften wrinkles and add volume to areas like the cheeks, lips, and under the eyes. Using substances like hyaluronic acid or collagen, fillers plump the skin and smooth out lines. A common question we hear at Academic Alliance in Dermatology is: “How long do fillers last?” Let’s break down what influences the longevity of fillers and what you can expect from different types.


What Affects How Long Fillers Last?

Several factors determine the lifespan of your fillers:

  • Type of Filler: Hyaluronic acid-based fillers usually last between 6 to 18 months, while collagen-based options might fade within 3 to 4 months.
  • Injection Site: Fillers in areas with frequent muscle movement, like the mouth, might break down faster than those in other areas.
  • Metabolism: People with faster metabolisms might find their fillers dissipate more quickly.
  • Lifestyle:Smoking and significant sun exposure can shorten the life of your fillers by breaking down the skin’s collagen and elastin.

Popular Brands and Their Benefits

Each brand offers products designed for specific needs:

  • Juvéderm®: Known for its smooth texture, Juvéderm works well for adding cheek volume, smoothing lines, and enhancing lips. Results can last up to a year or more, depending on the specific product used.
  • Restylane®: This line is great for deep lines, cheek volume, and lip enhancements, with some products offering results that last up to 18 months.
  • RHA®: Designed to mimic the natural hyaluronic acid in your skin, RHA fillers are excellent for areas with a lot of movement, providing a natural look that lasts.

Choosing the Right Filler

Not all fillers are created equal, and the best choice depends on the area treated and the desired outcome:

  • Cheek Fillers: Products like Restylane Lyft and Juvéderm Voluma add volume and can last up to 24 months.
  • Lip Fillers: Options like Juvéderm Volbella and Restylane Kysse enhance lips with results typically lasting around 6-12 months.
  • Chin and Jawline Fillers: These can redefine the lower face, with results lasting up to a year, depending on metabolism and product.
  • Hand Fillers: Restylane Lyft can rejuvenate hands by smoothing out wrinkles, lasting about 6 months.
  • Under-eye Fillers: To brighten dark circles and fill hollows, fillers like Restylane Eyelight last up to a year.
