Why Don't Botox and Fillers Last As Long for Me?

I had two injuections of perlane on March 10 and already see drooping. My skin seems very elastic. I have had restalyne and perlane and botox and they seem to only last a few months, certainly not 6-9 months. Please tell me why?

Botox and Fillers Lasting Time

These treatments generally do not last 6-9 months. Restalyne injections generally last 4 to 6 months, and accordingly treatments are scheduled approximately twice a year. The best cosmetic results are in those patients that have Restylane layered, i.e. a bit injected at a time, followed by further volume to get an even, long lasting result. Botox injections generally last between 3-6 months, enabling patients to control the extent of their treatments.
