In researching injectable treatments, many patients learn that fillers provide temporary rejuvenation and enhancement.

How Long Do Dermal Fillers Last?

How long do dermal fillers last? While this is one of the most-commonly asked questions regarding dermal filler treatment, the answer is not as straightforward as it may seem.

Filler longevity has to do with several factors including the product used, area injected, how quickly the patient’s body metabolizes the filler, and the injector’s technique and product placement.

That being said, dermal fillers can last anywhere between six months to two years.

Cheek fillers produce plumping, contouring, and lifting for up to 12 months.

Lip fillers can add volume, improve shape, and increase symmetry for six-to-nine months.

Dermal fillers for nasolabial folds and marionette lines are one of the longest-lasting. Patients can typically enjoy treatment benefits for up to two years.

Will People Be Able to Tell I’ve Had Dermal Fillers?

When performed correctly, dermal fillers should be undetectable.

Your friends and family members may comment that you look well-rested or ask if you’ve lost weight, but they won’t be able to tell that you’ve had any type of “work” done.

Can Filler Effects be Reversed?

In addition to asking – How long do dermal fillers last? – patients are also curious if filler results are reversible.

An enzyme called hyaluronidase can be injected to partially or fully remove hyaluronic acid fillers, such as Juvederm or Restylane, and correct any undesirable effects.
