How Long Do Different Wrinkle Fillers Last?
- Asked 6 years ago
Keep in mind that in different area, fillers last for different amounts of time
In general, other respondents hit most of the points. I wanted to add that fillers in the lips (mainly the HAs) won't last as long as the same filler placed in the nasolabial folds or cheek area. The longest area of duration is around the eye as several docs have suggested.
The theory is where there is more muscle movement, there is faster degredation. I find the nasal injections last about the same time as the nasolabial injections, maybe slightly longer.
There are also rapid metabolizers of HAs. For unknown reasons, some people chew up the filler faster than the general population. I've also heard of some rapid Radiesse metabolizers discussed at some meetings. If you think you're a rapid metabolizer of HAs then try Radiesse.
A new filler called Evolence will be FDA approved very shortly. It is a cross-linked collagen and will be labelled as lasting about 6 months but will probably get approval for saying 12 months after more studies are submitted. It can't be put in the lips, although a second form of it, called Breeze, will be able to.
How long do fillers last
The length effect is dependent on filler interactions with the body and how much motion is in the area. The lips tend to be the hardest area to keep a filler, due to talking, eating, etc.
Hyaluronic acids tend to lasr 6-12 months depending on their concentration and degree of cross linking.
Fat for most patients who have it harvested with gentle low pressure, and centrifuge the product will find many years of enjoyment.
Silicone and artifill are peramanent.
Sculptra and Radiesse are very unpredictable
