If I start using injectable fillers for laugh lines and cheek volume, will it take more product to achieve the same amount of correction as I get older? In other words, if I can get by with one syringe per area now, will I need more and more as I age or will usage remain about the same as long as I keep it up?
Concern over Long Term Use of Facial Fillers

You pose an excellent question. I think that if you started much later you probably would need more. However, fillers last a while in the face. Some up to a year or more. So, you may only need periodic filler replacement and perhaps not as much as if you started for the first time later in life.
