3 ways to make your dermal filler last longer

Dermal fillers are a highly effective way to increase facial volume while enhancing your best features.  

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, dermal 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 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 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. Skincare

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 dermal filler’s 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 dermal filler 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.
