Thank you for your question. The length will vary based on fillers. Botox and Dysport can last 3/4 months. Hylauronic acid fillersike Restylane and juvederm can last 6-9 months. While volumizers like Voluma, Radiesse and Sculptra can last 1-2 years. Each filler has its own "place" in the correction. Make sure you have a full consultation with a licensed physician. Good luck!

How long does it last?

{{ voteCount >= 0 ? '+' + (voteCount + 1) : (voteCount + 1) }}

Hello Barbara. The dermal fillers like Lyft or Voluma can last 1 to 2 years. This type of injection is performed in the cheeks, middle face, folds and chin. The neuromodulators (Botox, Dysport, Xeonim) last 3 to 4 months and have to be reapplied sooner. 

Consult with a highly trained injector for best results.

Thank you for your question. With both Restylane and Bellafill treatments, you will notice a difference immediately and the results will improve over the few months that follow. Results will typically last 9-12 months. With Botox, results typically last up to 4 months. For more information, I recommend getting a in person consultation from a board-certified dermatologist.

A liquid lift consists of a combination of fillers and Botox.  Botox injections last about 4 months.  Depending on the fillers used, they can last 6 months-2 years.  Each person metabolizes fillers at a different rate.  Always seek treatment from a qualified professional.  Good luck!

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

{{ voteCount >= 0 ? '+' + (voteCount + 1) : (voteCount + 1) }}

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!

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?

{{ voteCount >= 0 ? '+' + (voteCount + 1) : (voteCount + 1) }}
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

{{ voteCount >= 0 ? '+' + (voteCount + 1) : (voteCount + 1) }}
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.
