Although initially temporary, cosmetic injectables can provide significant long-lasting reduction in common signs of aging, including fine lines and wrinkles, volume loss, and other concerns. Each type of injectable offers unique benefits and lasts a different amount of time. Furthermore, your unique anatomy and lifestyle may also affect how long the results will continue. Importantly, Dr. Eugenie Brunner notes that with “touch-up” procedures performed at 6 to 9 month intervals, the results of injectables have longer-lasting effects by stimulating collagen formation. To make things a little easier, Dr. Brunner offers the following rough guideline to show how long a range of popular injectables and dermal fillers typically last. She personally administers these products in the comfort and safety of our well-equipped facial plastic surgery practice.
- BOTOX® Cosmetic, Dysport®, and Xeomin®: 4-6 months
- Restylane®: 8-12+ months
- Perlane®: 6-9 months
- Belotero Balance®: 8-12+ months
- JUVÉDERM®: 8-12 months
- JUVÉDERM VOLUMA™: up to 2 years
- Radiesse®: up to 1 year
- Sculptra® Aesthetic: up to 2 years
Your anatomy and lifestyle are unique, and your experience may vary from these estimates. Fortunately, if you love your results, intermittent maintenance sessions will definitely help to extend the effects.
