How frequently should I have Restylane to maintain the results and add volume without becoming addicted?

Frequency of Restylane treatments
I would recommend you discuss with a Board Certified Dermatologist with expertise with Restylane
Restylane® Typically Lasts 6 to 12 Months
Typically, the benefits of Restylane® should be visible for 6 to 12 months, depending on the location of the treatment and the nature of your skin. For example, highly mobile areas like the lips (or in your case, laugh lines) tend to require at least a touch-up treatment after about 6 months. Areas where there is less movement may only require additional treatment after 12 months.
While skin type and injection location are factors, skill is also a factor. It sounds like you are happy with your results, which is a wonderful thing. I recommend sharing your questions about the frequency of your visits with your dermatologist. If you think your results could improve, visit a board-certified plastic surgeon who specializes in using fillers to sculpt the face.
One other note: It sounds like you are very passionate about the use of fillers to enhance the face. So am I! Subscribe to my YouTube channel to stay up on the latest techniques and trends.
Restylane and Frequency of Injections
Restylane typically lasts between 6 and 9 months in a given area. If you are feeling the need for more frequent injections perhaps you want to look into Sculptra or one of the longer-lasting injections. No two people absorb Restylane at the same rate. I would be more concerned that you are satisfied with your results rather than if you are going too frequently for the injections. Sometimes injecting small amounts more frequently works better to have more natural results and this may be the case with your injections.
