last 6-9 months, this varies based on many things including a person’s
metabolism. It is something that you would need to continue having injected if
you want the results to last. Depending on the area injected you may be able to
get Juvederm Voluma injections, Voluma can last up to 2 years with optimal
correction. Generally fillers are used where our natural volume has been lost
or where correction is needed so there is no stretching of the skin. Consult with a Board Certified Dermatologist
to see what treatment is best for you.
Perlane should not cause sagging of the skin but placement is crucial to avoid this. I would recommend you follow up with a skilled board certified dermatologist for this procedure.
A 1mL syringe of Perlane is truly a small amount - about the size of one teaspoon of liquid. It's just not a large amount of liquid that's being injected so it doesn't stretch out the skin.

There are basically two factors which determine the length of time a facial filler will last. #1. Technique: if it is injected too deeply, it may be absorbed faster. See an experienced board certified plaqstic surgeon for this. #2. Location:All facial fillers will be absorbed more rapidly in areas where there is greater movement. For example, a filler placed in the lips rarely lasts more than three months. The upper part of the nasolabial fold area lasts a long time 6 - 12 months on average. As the nasolabial fold approaches the mouth area, the filler is absorbed more quickly.
Do not worry about stretching the skin following facial fillers, it is very unlikely .
I wish you well !
