How Often to Get Injectable Fillers like Juvederm, Restylane or Belotero?

Cosmetic fillers are renowned for their instant lifting and plumping ability. But you’re likely here with the question “How long does Juvederm last?” or “How often should I get Restylane?” They’re great questions!  After all, you want your filler treatment to have maximum staying power! In today’s post, find out the optimal frequency of treatment, as well as how to make fillers last longer.

How Long Does Juvederm Last? How Often to Get Cosmetic Fillers?

Six factors determine how long a dermal filler will last, including:

  • The active ingredient of the filler
  • The formulation of the filler 
  • The amount of product used during treatment
  • What maintenance schedule is followed
  • Differences in individual anatomy
  • The skill of the doctor doing injection

Read on to drill down on the ways in which each of these factors could impact the length of your filler results.

How Do Injectable Filler Ingredients Differ? What are They Made of?

The active ingredient of a filler has implication for how long it lasts. Let’s break it down further:

Hyaluronic Acid (HA) Filler

Brands include: Juvederm, Restylane and Belotero

An HA filler is a soft, gel-like substance that’s injected into the skin, in order to replenish lost hyaluronic acid. Depending on the filler formulation and at full-correction, it can restore a youthful appearance from 12-24 months.

Calcium Hydroxylapatite Filler

Brand: Radiesse

Calcium particles are suspended in a gel-like substance that’s thicker than HA fillers. Because of its similarities to bone and thicker structure, it’s typically used to restore extreme volume loss, as well as fill in deeper lines and wrinkles for up to 12 months (at full correction). 

Poly-L-lactic Acid Filler

Brand: Sculptra

Poly-L-lactic acid  has a different mechanism of action than other fillers. Specifically, it’s designed to dissolve a few days after treatment. Then, it begins a gradual process of boosting collagen production with results after multiple injections. Because of it’s thicker structure, it’s generally longer lasting than fillers with other active ingredients.

How Long Will Results Last? What’s the Longest-Lasting Filler?

Many brands of fillers, including Juvederm, Restylane and Belotero, contain different formulations to address specific skincare concerns and areas of the face. The formulation can affect result length, as follows. It’s important to note that individual results may vary.

Juvederm Voluma

Up to 24 months. A touch-up treatment at the year mark can promote longevity.

Juvederm Vollure 

Approximately 12-18 months.

Juvederm Volbella

Approximately 12 months.

Juvederm Ultra / Juvederm Ultra Plus

Up to 12 months with possible touch-ups at 6-9 months to extend results.

Restylane Defyne / Restylane Refyne / Restylane Lyft

Up to 12 months with possible touch-ups at 6-9 months for longevity.

Restylane Silk / Restylane Kysse

Approximately 6-9 months.

Belotero Intense / Belotero Volume / Belotero Balance 

Up to 12 months with possible touch-ups at 6-9 months for longevity.

Belotero Soft

Approximately 6-9 months.

Radiesse

Up to 15 months with possible touch-ups at 7 months to extend results.

Sculptra

Up to 24 months. 

How Often to Get Fillers Redone? When Should I Do Touch-Up Treatment?

It’s true that fillers slowly degrade after injection. However, HA fillers, in particular, have a powerful ability to absorb water and, thus, maintain results. That said, touch-ups are recommended, as per the schedule above or when you see a noticeable decrease in volume at the treatment area. 

How Many Units of Filler Will Increase Longevity?

Full correction is important for longevity. For example, If someone gets one syringe of filler, but really needs two or three, then, the wow factor definitely won’t last. In this case, they may need touch-up treatment earlier, as opposed to if they had invested in more units up front. An experienced doctor can give recommendations about how many units of filler will extend your treatment results.

Am I a Good Candidate for Dermal Fillers? 

Cosmetic fillers have a long history of safe and effective use, and generally work on everyone. There are individual differences that can impact how long fillers last, including:

  • How quickly the body metabolizes the filler
  • The extent of skin aging before treatment (again, why it’s important to have enough units at treatment to assure full-correction)

How to Find a Juvederm Doctor Near Me? 

As you can see from the information above, so many factors go into how long a filler will work for you. It’s important to find a reputable doctor who:

  • Knows which formulation is best suited for your particular skincare concern
  • Has experience knowing precisely where to inject product to get the filler results you’re looking for 
  • Knows how much product to inject, in order to reverse noticeable signs of aging
  • Can advise the right maintenance schedule to extend your filler results.
  • Will take your personal beauty goals into consideration to give you the results you’re looking for
