As we age, our natural production of hyaluronic acid gradually slows, which is essential for providing a youthful appearance in our skin, such as having a smooth, tight complexion that is wrinkle-free and plump. Dermal fillers use hyaluronic acid to inject that volume back into the surface of the skin to fill in any wrinkles and plump up sagging and hollow skin. When done by a qualified dermal filler provider, the results will be natural and beautiful and can take years off of your appearance.
Dermal fillers can be useful for anyone who wishes to reduce the appearance of aging in their skin through fine lines, wrinkles, sagging, and loss of volume. They include an injectable substance that helps to replenish the hyaluronic acid levels that start to dissipate with age, leading to the skin appearing to be more hollow and allowing for deep creasing to occur where muscles are used regularly. Receiving regular dermal fillers allows clients who are dissatisfied with the effects of aging on their skin to enjoy softer, plumper, smoother skin for years to come. Offering beautiful and natural results, dermal fillers are also commonly used to provide volume to thin lips and lift cheeks, allowing many clients to gain confidence in their appearance.
While many dermal fillers provide long-lasting results, if injections are halted, the benefits will eventually gradually disappear. The effects that aging has on our skin are treatable, but without treatment, the aging process will continue, meaning that volume may start to disappear from the skin again, slowly revealing fine lines and wrinkles, and sagging skin. Contrary to common belief, once you stop receiving fillers, the effects of aging do not rapidly appear as they were before, they will simply gradually occur as they did before any dermal fillers were used. There is no concern for how the hyaluronic acid reacts in the body because it is naturally produced, making it much safer than many other injectable filling options, and it dissolves naturally over time, so stopping getting fillers will simply mean that the hyaluronic acid will naturally dissolve and no longer provide the skin with volume and it will return to its natural state.
The average amount of time that dermal fillers will last in your skin before naturally dissolving can be anywhere from 6 to 18 months, depending predominantly on age. Clients who are a bit older and are using dermal fillers to reduce the effects that aging has had on the skin may notice that their injections only last around 6 months and will require touch-ups or maintenance injections to ensure that their desired results are sufficiently sustained. Clients who are younger and are receiving dermal fillers as a preventative measure to combat the effects of aging or for plumping the lips or cheeks will likely be able to enjoy their desired results for closer to 12 to 18 months before any touch-up injections are required to sustain the results. However, if a client is dissatisfied with the appearance of their dermal fillers, there are ways to speed up the process of dissolving hyaluronic acid to be rid of the effects much sooner.
The frequency at which any individual may choose to receive dermal fillers per year heavily depends on their desired results and how quickly their body seems to be naturally dissolving the hyaluronic acid contained in the fillers. Some people just process and dissolve hyaluronic acid naturally much faster than others. For those who are using dermal fillers in order to minimize the effects that aging has had on the skin through filling in deeper wrinkles such as frown lines, crow’s feet, or smile lines, dermal filler injections may be required every 4 to 6 months in order to ensure that the wrinkles do not appear at all as the hyaluronic acid dissolves. However, there are many clients who are able to go up to even 2 years before noticing the effects of the fillers start to disappear.
