A woman receiving dermal fillers in her cheek Are you considering dermal fillers to rejuvenate your appearance? If so, you might be wondering, “How long do dermal fillers last?”

Understanding the longevity of different types of fillers can help you make an informed decision about your cosmetic procedure. Find out what you need to know below.

Types of Dermal Fillers

Dermal fillers are a flexible cosmetic treatment used in filler injections to tackle different signs of aging and improve facial features. Here’s a breakdown of the most common types:

Hyaluronic Acid Fillers

Derived from a natural substance found in the body, hyaluronic acid fillers, like JUVÉDERM® and Restylane®, add volume and hydration to the skin.

Calcium Hydroxylapatite Fillers

These fillers, such as RADIESSE®, contain calcium hydroxylapatite, a mineral-like compound. They stimulate collagen production and are ideal for filling deeper lines and wrinkles, providing long-lasting results.

Poly-L-lactic Acid Fillers

Poly-l-lactic acid fillers, like Sculptra®, gradually stimulate collagen synthesis in the skin, improving volume and texture over time. They’re suitable for restoring facial volume and contouring.

Polymethylmethacrylate (PMMA) Fillers

PMMA fillers, including Bellafill®, contain tiny microspheres encapsulated in a gel. By promoting collagen synthesis and maintaining tissue structure, they produce long-lasting effects.

How Long is the Usual Duration of the Results?

As with any skincare procedure, outcomes can vary for each person. Certain dermal fillers may endure for 6 to 12 months, whereas others might persist for 2 to 5 years. Conversely, injectables like BOTOX® Cosmetic typically last for about three to four months.

Here are the durations of different derma fillers:

Hyaluronic Acid Fillers

They yield natural-looking outcomes and generally endure for 6 to 12 months. The duration can change depending on your body’s metabolism and the type of filler you use.

Calcium Hydroxylapatite Fillers

Typically, they remain effective for up to 18 months, making them favored for enhancing volume and contours in facial regions.

Poly-L-lactic Acid Fillers

These are known for their lasting efficacy; poly-l-lactic acid fillers operate by stimulating collagen production gradually. Results can last for two years or more.
