Approximately how long does a non surgical face lift last? Fillers? Resylane? Botox?

Doctor Answers 10

12- 24 months for liquid face lifts, depending on product.

This video shows a product called Radiesse, in theory it last 1 year, but in reality with collagen stimulation, I have seen results lasting up to and beyond 2 years. For HA fillers such as Juvederm, as a guide, Volift- 18 months, Voluma 24 months. I often combine an energy device such as Ultherapy first, then perform fillers 3-4 months there after - this gives a better result than a single treatment of filler. All the best, Dr Davin S. Lim.

Duration Of Nonsurgical Facelift

Thank you for your excellent question.  The duration of results depends on the products used and how your body metabolizes them.  I prefer to use the triad of Botox, Juvederm and Voluma.  In general, Botox lasts 3-6 months, with an average duration of 4 months.  Juvederm lasts for up to one year.  Voluma lasts for up to 2 years.  Beautiful and natural results can be achieved.  Please be sure to see an expert injector for an in-person consultation to fully discuss your goals and expectations in order to determine the best treatment plan.  Hope this helps and best wishes!

Longevity of Non surgical face lift

The longevity of results will vary on the products chosen, the area(s) treated, the skill of the physician, and the patient's genetics and some lifestyle considerations. Fillers such as Voluma will last up to 2 years. While fillers such as juvederm and restylane will last up to 1 year.

How long does a non-surgical face lift last?

Thank you for your excellent questions.  Results from minimally invasive procedures will vary based on the material injection, placement of material, and inherent patient genetics.  This is as a result of different thicknesses and properties of fillers that affect their duration, the degree of motion seen by different parts of the face, and the ability of a patient's body to metabolize the products.  In general however, Botox can be expected to last 3-4 months while fillers can range from 3 months to over 2 years. Because of the range of effects it is best to see an ASPS board certified plastic surgeon in consultation to discuss your results.

Liquid facelift duration

Thank you for your question.  A liquid facelift typically refers to the non-surgical rejuvenation as an alternative to a surgical facelift.  Our faces will 'deflate' with the aging process, i.e. we lose volume in our face.  In addition, we tend to lose support in our facial tissues in terms of loss of collagen, elastin and other support structures in our face.  The liquid facelift is most commonly a term that address the 'deflation' process by adding volume with dermal fillers.  Dermal fillers tend to have different longevity, but answering this question tends to be more nuanced.  Typically, people tend to see their results last anywhere from 6 months to a couples years depending on the product, how much was used and where it was placed.I often tell patients that a more appropriate way to think about it is the analogy of a glass of water.If you come to visit and the glass is 1/4 full (or 3/4 empty), then we need 3/4 of water to fill it up.  In six months, you may notice the glass is 3/4 full (i.e. you lost 1/4 of the glass volume).  At 1 year, you may notice that the glass is 1/2 full.  At 18-24 months, you may notice that you are back to where you started.In addition, patients are losing more volume as they age so some patients may get the impression that if they only do one treatment to fill the glass, then after a couple years they may feel like the glass is even more empty than when they first started.Most of my patients will come every 3-4 months for their Botox / Dysport treatments and we reassess their facial concerns.  It is fairly common to address a portion of the volume loss as they come in.  For example, if we did a cheek treatment last time, then we might address tear troughs this time.  The next time, we might address the temples or forehead/brows with dermal fillers.  The following time, we might do the lips and nasolabial folds or define the jawline.  Very commonly, if we are following this plan, we also 'touch up' areas that are starting to show the 3/4 full appearance.  At times, we do it all at once and then maintain with 'touch-up' treatments using far less volume every 6-12 months rather than wait until the glass is 1/4 full again.I would recommend that you visit with an experience board certified plastic surgeon or dermatologist who can help develop an aesthetic care plan for you. 

Non surgical options

A non-surgical face lift is made up of several different components in order to achieve your desired results. Fillers such as Voluma or Radiesse last about 2 years and are used to correct loss of volume specifically in the cheek region. Other fillers such as juvederm and restylane last about 1 year and are commonly used for treating nasolabial folds and marionette lines. Neurotoxins such as Botox are always great for relaxing those muscles which cause forehead wrinkles and crows feet. For my patients I always emphasize the importance of skin texture and quality of the skin. Collagen producing treatments such as microneedling, platelet rich plasma treatments, and fractional laser should be used in combination with fillers to give you the most youthful appearance possible.

Liquid Skin Lift Longevity

Typically Botox lasts 3 to 4 months. Botox in combination
with instant fillers may help fillers last
longer. Generally instant filler last between 6 to 12 months depending on the
filler used. Juvederm Voluma  may last
12 to 24 months. Another factor is the amount of filler injected initially with
the liquid face lift – multiple syringes lead to
more complete facial revolumization and better longevity. Thanks for your

Non- surgical facelift can produce immediate results

Hi Barbara,
Dermal Fillers are a safe and effective solution for replenishing that volume and restoring skin to its youthful condition.   Often called the liquid face lift or lunchtime lift, these injectable fillers require little time to inject, with the results being almost immediate.  There are many quality fillers available today. Some of the top brands are Juvederm, Restylane, Teosyal, Redensity II, Voluma Lift and Volbella.
These brands are all made of hyaluronic acid- which is already found in our body in our joints and eyes, therefore, the risk of an allergic reaction to hyaluronic acid is extremely rare. The duration of the fillers vary but in general last anywhere from 4 to 6 months for botox and hyaluronic acid fillers can last anywhere from 3 months to up to a year all depending on the type of filler and amount used.Most people choose a non-surgical facelift because they do not want to commit to a surgical facelift procedure. The patient should be aware of that a non- surgical facelift will not produce the same permanent results as an actual facelift procedure. Dermal Filler can be used to target areas of the face where wrinkle correction and facial rejuvenation is required and can provide good results that don’t require surgery. Please see a board certified plastic surgeon who can take a look at the current condition of your face in order to create a customized non- surgical facelift procedure for you based on your desired expectations. 
Good luck!

Nonsurgical face lift provides youthful appearance

Hi.  Nonsurgical facelifts are composed of different treatments, all of which require ongoing maintenance since the aging process never stops.  Good skin care (laser resurfacing, tightening, peels, retin A to address lines, pigmentation, pore size, etc) creates a very youthful appearance.  Restoring lost volume with fillers provides additional benefits and its longevity is dependent upon the actual filler and amount injected-about 1 year for most.  Botox to soften lines of facial expression will not last beyond 6 months.  All of these modalities are good adjuncts to a surgical lift and will provide more youthful appearance.  Be sure to see an ABPS certified Plastic surgeon for examination & more detailed information on longevity. Best wishes,

How long does a non-surgical facelift last?

There are multiple methods to help lift the face without surgery and these all have different lengths of time that they may last.  Botox typically will last about 3-4 months but in some cases as long as 6.  Restylane will last several months but usually be gone by a year at most.  Other fillers such as Radiesse, Voluma, Sculptra and Bellafill all will last different lengths of time.  Radiesse can last a year or so, Voluma about 1-2 years, Sculptra about 2-4 years and Bellafill even longer.  Ultherapy is a non-surgical procedure that uses ultrasound to produce lifting and tightening and results can last several years.
