How to ensure your dermal filler results last as long as possible is a big question we get from our clients. A highly effective way to increase facial volume while enhancing your best features, dermal filler results typically last up to six months but there are ways to ensure you remain youthful and fresh beyond this.
For those new to the treatment, dermal filler involves injecting a substance called hyaluronic acid (HA) underneath your skin. This works to stabilise our skin’s structure, attract and bind water, and improve elasticity. This results in a plumper, more radiant complexion.
Due to their natural makeup, filler injections are not permanent. The injected HA is metabolised by your body over a period of time. Results typically last six to twelve months.
Although your metabolism plays a big role when it comes to the longevity of your results from the 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 your 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.
Clients who use high-quality medical grade skincare and regularly take care of their skin will notice longer lasting results from their filler. Moisturisers, drinking water and other treatments like beauty boosters and Skinboosters™ will enhance its effects, helping your skin to remain plump and full. Beauty boosters and Skinboosters™ have been designed to complement dermal fillers by injecting the skin with a simple form of filler to boost hydration and skin health.
3. Avoid stress
If you want your results to last longer, then you need to stress less! Stress releases hormones that speed up the ageing process. This causes fine lines and wrinkles, which breaks down the filler product. To extend the longevity of your treatments, try to reduce any unnecessary stress factors from your life.
