What Are Dermal Fillers?

Dermal fillers are injectable products designed to fill-in lines, add volume, refine features, and rejuvenate skin. They are an excellent option for women and men who want to combat signs of aging as well as those who are interested in enhancing their appearance without surgery or downtime.

A filler treatment is performed in the comfort of your dermatologist’s office and usually takes 20-30 minutes. Many products provide instant results, while avoiding downtime and recovery.

How Long Do Dermal Fillers Last?

In the hands of a skilled and experienced injector like Dr. Hayre, dermal fillers can achieve natural-looking results and subtle aesthetic enhancement. But because outcomes are only temporary, patients often want to know: How long do dermal fillers last?

Filler longevity largely depends on the product used and its unique formulation.

Hyaluronic acid fillers, such as Restylane and Juvederm, are gradually metabolized by the body and can last between 6 months and 2 years. Thicker HA fillers, like Juvederm Voluma, Restylane Lyft and Restylane Kysse, tend to provide longer-lasting benefits than thinner formulations such as, Juvederm Volbella and Restylane Silk.

“Fillers in lips tend to last a shorter time than in the cheeks, because we move our mouths a lot.  I am excited to see if Restylane Kysse will last a bit longer since it is specifically made for the lips.  They say it is proven to be ‘Kyssable’!” – Dr. Nicole Hayre

Collagen-stimulating fillers, like Radiesse and Sculptra, are designed to stimulate collagen growth around the injected product. As such, they can add volume and rejuvenate skin for 1-2 years.
