If you’re interested in dermal fillers, you’re not alone – thousands of men and women are discovering how these anti-aging injections can help reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines around the face and hands.  Dermal fillers can even be used to add volume to key facial areas like the cheeks and lips.  These anti-aging injections can easily be incorporated into any skincare regimen for smooth, hydrated, and younger-looking skin.

But when it comes down to it, how often will you have to undergo dermal filler injections?  How long do dermal filler results last?

The answer is that it depends on the type of dermal filler you’re using.  Some dermal fillers can last for six to twelve months, while other dermal fillers can last up to five years.

Most dermal fillers contain hyaluronic acid, a natural compound that aids in the production of collagen and elastin.  Hyaluronic acid also helps skin absorb water, which helps it look brighter, more hydrated, and firmer.  The thicker the hyaluronic acid gel, the more volume you can expect to see at the injection site.  For example, dermal fillers for lip augmentation have thinner gels (to provide best results possible), while dermal fillers for cheek augmentation are naturally thicker and designed to last longer.

As a rule of them, here’s how long you can expect results to last for, depending on the type of brand you use:

  • Juvederm Ultra & UltraPlus – nine to twelve months
  • Juvederm Volbella – six to twelve months
  • Juvederm Voluma – one to two years
  • Sculptra – one to two years
