How Often Do I Need Dermal Fillers?

Featured Image

There are many different dermal fillers on the market, and depending on how they’re made and administered, you may need multiple treatments before you see ideal results. In addition, you will likely want to touch up your dermal fillers as they wear off.

 

The team at Ageless Aesthetics serves patients in Macon, GA, south Georgia counties, and those coming in from south of Atlanta. Below, we’ll look at how often our patients can expect to need dermal fillers.

What are dermal fillers?

Dermal fillers fall under the larger category of “injectables.” These treatments are used to reduce the signs of aging in different ways, targeting different areas. For example, BOTOX® and Dysport® are injectables, but they fall into the category of wrinkle relaxers, which affect the muscles beneath the skin to reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles.

 

On the other hand, dermal fillers are a type of injectable that contains a substance to fill in lines, add volume to the face, and smooth skin. The most common injectable substances are hyaluronic acid (HA), calcium hydroxylapatite (CaHA), poly-L-lactic acid, and polymethylmethacrylate (PMMA). Your skin care goals and history will help determine which dermal filler best fits your needs.

 

What types of dermal fillers create younger-looking skin?

At Ageless Aesthetics, our team offers JUVÉDERM®, Restylane®, and Bellafill® to patients seeking dermal fillers for younger, smoother looking skin.

 

JUVÉDERM is a family of dermal fillers formulated with synthetic hyaluronic acid (HA) and can reduce signs of aging, such as wrinkles and loss of volume in the face. JUVÉDERM VOLLURE™ XC is typically used to treat moderate to deep wrinkles and lines around the mouth and nose. JUVÉDERM VOLBELLA™ XC and Ultra XC can help lift the upper lip, plump both lips, and make lips look smooth and youthful again. Finally, JUVÉDERM VOLUMA™ XC adds volume to the cheeks and helps sculpt the midface. The natural-looking results of these HA fillers can last 1 – 2 years, depending on your specific treatment. This is partly because JUVÉDERM is designed to stimulate your body’s natural HA and collagen production.

 

Restylane is another family of HA fillers offered by the team at Ageless Aesthetics. The original Restylane addresses facial folds and wrinkles; Restylane Refyne treats mild to more moderate lines in this area while moderate to severe lines usually require Restylane Defyne; Restylane Lyft helps create volume and lift in the mid-face; and finally, Restalyne Silk and Kysse both treat the lips, but Silk gives more subtle results. Because it’s an HA filler, the results are long-lasting. Depending on your treatment, results may last from 6 – 18 months.

 

Bellafill is a collagen-based soft tissue dermal filler designed to plump areas of the face where you’ve experienced volume loss, help contour the midface area, reduce the appearance of acne scars, lines, and wrinkles, and generally smooth the skin. It typically requires between 1 – 3 injections to get ideal, long-lasting results.

 

How often do I need to get dermal fillers?

Dermal fillers can last from months to years depending on the type of dermal filler you get, the area and amount injected, and how well you care for your skin. For example, many JUVÉDERM treatments can last from 1 – 2 years, while Restalyne treatments can vary from 6 – 18 months. And while Bellafill often requires more injections to reach an ideal result, those results can last up to five years.

 

On the other hand, wrinkle relaxers like BOTOX require touch-ups 2 – 4 times a year, so you need to discuss your goals and your ability to come in for multiple treatments or touch-ups with your practitioner. They’ll be able to recommend the injectable that’s right for you.
