When we take action to combat the signs of ageing, injectable cosmetic treatments are an ideal choice for their long-lasting results.

One of the most common questions our Juv’ae Cosmetic Nurses get asked about our dermal fillers is how long the benefits will be visible. Ultimately this depends on the placement of the dermal filler in conjunction with the patient’s metabolism, which will work to break down the hyaluronic acid.

Because we use the naturally occurring formulation of hyaluronic acid for safe and subtly transformative dermal fillers, these injections will eventually need replenishing over time.

So, how long will my dermal fillers last?

If you’ve had wrinkle fillers applied to plump up and reinvigorate areas of your face with Juv’ae, you can expect the results to last any length of time from six to 24 months. The longest-lasting areas for wrinkle fillers are the cheek area which can last up to 24 months.

Our lips experience a great deal more movement than our facial muscles, and this can speed up the absorption of the hyaluronic acid by your body. As such, lip dermal fillers typically last around three to six months before you may notice a change back to their original shape or size.

When should I book another appointment?

How often you have your treatments redone is really up to you and the results you are seeking.

We have patients booking regular appointments every three to 12 months, depending on the areas treated. Keep in mind that there is often some slight swelling with initial lip fillers, and once this subsides, it can seem as though the effect is wearing off. Instead, this is your body’s way of adjusting to the injections. By comparing before and after photos, you will still notice a difference in the long term.

How can I maximise the effects of my dermal fillers?

You can do a few things to prolong the results of your dermal filler.

First, ensure that your dermal filler is injected by a Cosmetic Nurse who is experienced in the area you are having treated. That way, they will know how to target the correct dermal layer for the best result. The other benefit of choosing a reputable dermal filler specialist is that the substance itself will be of high quality, as the various brands of hyaluronic acid are not all made equal. A ‘thicker’ substance requires more skill, but will ultimately provide longer-lasting results.
