Are you interested in taking the leap and trying fillers for the first time? Dermal fillers are so popular, and are easy to try without committing. Instead of getting surgery, which is pretty much permanent, fillers allow you to try on a new look. They also allow you to adjust your look as you age, keeping you looking natural and youthful. Keep reading to learn more about fillers and how often you’ll need to come in for a retouch.
What can fillers do for me?
There are many different types of fillers on the market, which can all be tailored to what you’re looking for. If you want more volume in your lips, there is a perfectly-suited filler for that. If you want to smooth wrinkles, there are fillers that are designed to rest under the skin and give you a more youthful, plump look. Fillers can even be used to treat certain cosmetic issues in the nose, which can save you from a nose job in some situations.
How often will I need to come back for more?
To keep it simple, it all depends on what fillers you have, and where they are placed.
The Type of Fillers
Hyaluronic Acid fillers are popular, but they are just one type of filler. And they vary. For example, Restylane lasts six to nine months, while Juvederm can last from nine months to a full year!
We recommend being open to suggestions when you come in for your consultation. Though you may want the fillers that last the longest, other fillers may actually be better suited for the results you want.
Where Your Fillers Are
Where they are placed will affect how long your fillers last, as well. If you have fillers injected in a place that moves a lot throughout the day, it may cause your fillers to break down and “wear out” faster. This is why we recommend coming in more frequently for lip filler touch-ups, for example.
