Lip filler does not last long
Hello. Technique make a big difference. You also need a product that will give you a lot more volume than what you have used. If this does not work I suggest fat fillers. Go to a board certified doctor with more experience and you will notice the difference.
Lip filler not lasting
so you want to know can anything be done to make fillers in your lips last longer? Thankfully, the answer is yes! A new technique, referred to as ‘stacking’, involves having filler treatment performed six months after the original treatment, whether you need it or not. A study by the makers of Restylane showed that by stacking treatments (scheduling treatments every 6 months), the Restylane actually lasted longer than if treatments were performed after the effects of the filler had gone away.
The idea of stacking hyaluronic acid filler treatments is new and exciting, because it means that treatment with both Restylane and Juvederm in the lips will now last longer, with the same number of syringes being used for the treatments. Patients who wish to stack their hyaluronic acid filler treatments should return to the office every 6 months for their next treatment. The technique of stacking can also be used for other areas of the face, such as the nasolabial folds and the midface.

Lips that don't last
There are several reasons for this to occur. The continual movement in your lips can increase the reduction of the volume in treatment. Sometimes we try a small amount of Botox above the lips to prevent this movement. Also you may have a fast metabolism? This can cause the fillers to be neutralized more quickly. You indicate that you have had six treatments. It often takes several treatments for the result to hold. I'm not sure how far apart these treatments were or if you changed products? I would see a board-certified dermatologist or plastic surgeon, not a nurse injector, for this issue. Thank you for your question. Dr. Adrienne Stewart MD F AAD

Lip filler results
The ideal product to use in the lips is the hyaluronic acid fillers which you had. There are differences in duration from person to person and lip filler augmentation can last anywhere from 3 months to a area. We see quite a variation in duration in this area. It may be secondary to the fact that this area is constantly moving. There are newer hyaluronic acid fillers which can last longer such as Voluma although this should be injected by an experienced provider. Second, it may also depend on the technique or placement. hope this helps
