How Long Do Lip Fillers Last?

Injectable fillers can last anywhere from six months to a year. Juvederm and Restylane are two of our go-to fillers for quickly and long-term volume restoration.

We can administer these injections right here in the office in just a few minutes. In order to keep things looking plump and pillowy, they’re made of synthetic hyaluronic acid (just like in your favorite day serum! ).

The hyaluronic acid we use is metabolized by your body on its own. In other words, injection fillers will gradually fade over time, usually within a year for the majority of users. To keep your new pout looking fresh, you’ll need to schedule regular appointments.

Do fillers ruin your lips?

Lips can be damaged by inexperienced facial injectors or doctors who are not board-certified by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS). When hyaluronic acid-based fillers are injected into the lips, they are susceptible to being damaged if the patient attempts to remove them or dissolve them off, which is why the doctor may “ruin” them and make them appear fake. If the liposuction injections were not filled with fillers at all, they could have been made of silicone, collagen, or fat transfer fillers, which use fat harvested from another part of the body and permanently injected into the lip to give it a fuller appearance. As can be seen in all of these instances, the risk is significantly higher than with hyaluronic acid-based fillers, which are less dangerous but less long-term in nature. Damage to the lips can occur if permanent options for plumping the lips are removed or reversed, which can be extremely dangerous.

How long do first time lip fillers last?

It varies depending on the formula you use, but according to Dr. Sheffield, the majority of them last between six months and a year. This means that if you are pleased with your initial results, take plenty of photographs because they will fade over time.
How often should you get lip fillers?
Treatments can be repeated every six months if necessary. The use of hyaluronic acid injections has been found to stimulate the production of more collagen in the skin, resulting in increased natural plumpness in the lips.

– Restylane is good for six months.
– Volbella is 12 months old.
– 3 months for collagen injections
