What Happened to My Fillers?

There are many different types of fillers on the market, which can all be tailored to what you’re looking for. If you want fuller cheeks, there is a filler that can mimic the texture of your cheeks. If you want to smooth out wrinkles and lines, there are fillers specially designed to rest under the skin and give you a more smooth appearance.

How often will I need to come back for more?

It all depends on what you get, and where your fillers are placed. Keep reading to understand a little more about fillers.

The Filler

For example, compared to Restylane, Juvederm may last a little longer in similar situations. Although both fillers contain hyaluronic acid, Restylane generally lasts from six to nine months, while Juvederm can last from nine to twelve months. This is due to its higher concentration of hyaluronic acid.

Some patients find that Juvederm settles in more smoothly following their treatment, with less puffiness. However, there are areas, such as the under eyes, where Restylane is preferred because it doesn’t attract water as much as Juvederm. We can help you find the best filler for your needs, so don’t worry if you’re feeling confused!

The Location

Consider where you’re getting your injections, and don’t hesitate to ask us if you aren’t sure when to book your next appointment. Consider this: injections in the lips will wear out a little faster than those to the nasolabial folds, because they will experience more movement.

Providers Vary

To make things slightly more complicated, the provider you use may affect how long your fillers last. If your provider isn’t very skilled, they may place the fillers too low or too high, leading to quicker turnover. That’s why we recommend finding the best provider, and doing your research, before you take the plunge. We’ve got you covered at Utah Valley Dermatology!
