What can fillers do for me?

There are many different types of fillers on the market, and the technology is making them better and more flexible for your needs. If you want fuller lips, fillers can be used to add a little more oomph to your pout. If you want to smooth out wrinkles, there are fillers that can smooth out those pesky age lines. Fillers can even be used to avoid a nose job in certain situations.

How often will I need to come back for more?

A few things will affect how long your fillers last. For example, what type of filler you get, where the filler is placed, and the provider you use can impact how long they last.

Hyaluronic acid is a popular active ingredient for fillers, and how long this type of filler lasts under your skin will depend on which one you choose. Hyaluronic acid fillers are used to add volume to cheeks and lips, but they can also be used to minimize wrinkles. You can expect your results to last from six to twenty four months with hyaluronic acid fillers.

Calcium Hydroxylapatite is another popular ingredient for fillers. This increases collagen production in the skin, adding to a more smooth appearance by incorporating more lift to the skin. This filler is often used to increase volume and lift the cheeks.  It can even be used to minimize nasolabial folds. This filler can last from twelve to eighteen months under the skin.

To make things slightly more complex, the provider you use can affect how long your fillers last. If your provider is new to placing fillers, they could inject the fillers too low or too high, leading to quicker loss of the filler. That’s why we recommend finding the best provider, and doing your research, before you get fillers.
