Tips to Make Dermal Fillers Last Longer

We are aging differently thanks to cosmetic injectables. Men and women both benefit from wrinkle fillers, such as Botox® and dermal fillers. Skin that is smoother, lips that are fuller, and less fine lines and wrinkles are just some of the benefits of this procedure. JUVÉDERM® and Restylane® are two of the most popular dermal fillers available today. A safe cosmetic procedure, dermal fillers can help you look incredible at Elysium SurgiSpa.

A Look At Cosmetic Injectables

In addition to smoking, stress, sun exposure, and hereditary factors, the aging process of the face is influenced by a number of factors. Dermal fillers can be an effective solution for people in their 40s and 50s who are looking to curb the signs of facial aging. Many Chicago, IL patients in their 20s and 30s turn to facial injectables as a preventative measure to keep fine lines and wrinkles at bay. In today’s aesthetic industry, Botox and dermal fillers are considered miracle workers, diminishing fine lines and wrinkles and delaying more invasive procedures. A variety of problems can be treated with injectables, including:

  • The glabellar lines, or the “11 lines”, are located between the eyebrows
  • Deep forehead creases or frown lines
  • Laugh lines, or Marionette lines, are found around the corner of the mouth
  • Crying or wrinkled eyes
  • Scarring from acne of mild severity
  • Increasing the size of your lips
  • Make your chin look better
  • Make cheeks and temples appear fuller

How Long Do Dermal Fillers Last?

The more fine lines and wrinkles we have, the less youthful our skin appears. As we age, hyaluronic acid and collagen production in the skin decrease, and wrinkle fillers become necessary around the eyes and other areas of our face. A combination of factors, such as sun exposure, gravity, and hormonal changes, can make these imperfections more noticeable. Hyaluronic acid is a natural component found in JUVÉDERM, Restylane, and other products that helps form elastin and collagen. The duration of filler injections can vary from 6 – 12 months, but others can last up to a year or longer. You can maintain a youthful appearance for a long time by following some tips.
