3 ways to make your dermal filler last longer

Dermal fillers are an efficient, effective and quick treatment to increase facial volume, fullness and youthfulness while enhancing your best features.  

For those new to the treatment, dermal filler involves injecting a substance called hyaluronic acid (HA) underneath your skin. HA, which is a naturally occurring substance in our bodies, works to stabilises our skin’s structure, attract and bind water, and improve elasticity, for a plumper, more radiant complexion.  

Due to their natural make up though, dermal filler injections are not permanent, as the injected HA is metabolised by your body over a period of time, with results typically lasting six to twelve months.  

Although your metabolism plays a big role when it comes to the longevity of your results from dermal filler treatment, there are ways you can lengthen and maintain the outcomes:  

1.Maintenance treatments

Maintenance appointments, or top-ups, before your results completely wear off can lengthen and enhance the dermal filler’s effects. It is often better to preserve the results rather than start from scratch once all the hyaluronic acid has been broken down. Dermal filler can also be used in conjunction with other treatments to help prevent effects from fading.  

2.Skin care

Clients who use high quality medical grade skin care and regularly take care of their skin will notice that the results from their dermal filler treatments will last longer. Moisturisers, drinking water and other hydration treatments like beauty boosters will enhance the water-absorption effects of hyaluronic based fillers, helping the areas remain plump and full. Beauty boosters have been designed to complement dermal fillers by injecting the skin with a simple form of filler (without the lifting and plumping elements) to boost hydration and skin health.  

3.Avoid stress

If you want your dermal filler results to last longer, then you need to stress less! Stress releases hormones that accelerate the ageing process and causes fine lines and wrinkles, which breaks down the filler product. To extend the longevity of your dermal filler treatments try to reduce any unnecessary stress factors from your life while implementing positive relief techniques by finding activities that work for you.
