Thousands of men and women are discovering the excellent anti-aging injections that reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles around the face and hands. These injections are effective and affordable while having no downtime and relatively no risks. If you are about to become one of the many satisfied men and women using dermal fillers, you may have one important question left to ask: How Long Do Dermal Fillers Last?
An Overview of Dermal Fillers
Dermal fillers are gel-like substances that are injected beneath the skin which work to replace the lost volume, to smooth wrinkles, plump lips, and soften lines. Most dermal fillers contain hyaluronic acid to aid in the production of collagen and elastin. Hyaluronic acid helps the skin to absorb water, which makes the skin look brighter, firmer, and more hydrated.
How Long Do They Last?
Depending on the type of dermal filler you use and the area that is being treated, they can last anywhere from 6 months to 5 years. As a general rule, thinner gels are used in lips and last a shorter amount of time. Thicker gels are used in cheeks and tend to last a longer amount of time. There are many lines of dermal fillers in use including Juvederm, Restylane, Stylage, Bellafill, and Teosyal. Your skincare experts will help you decide which one is best suited for your needs, but we will look at the Juvederm line for a quick comparison of their longevity.

Juvederm is a well-known collection of soft tissue dermal fillers that plump and hydrate your skin from within. These fillers are hyaluronic acid-based and help to correct age-related volume loss such as thinning lips, sunken cheeks, under-eye wrinkles, and lines and wrinkles on the mid to lower face. The Juvederm line gives patients instant results after just one visit. There are several different variations of this product:
- Juvaderm Ultra and Ultra Plus – for adding volume to lips – will last for 9-12 months.
- Juvaderm Voluma – for adding lift and contour to cheeks and filling hollows of the eyes- will last 1 to 2 years
- Juvederm Vobella – for adding volume to lips-will last 6-12 months
- Juvederm Vollure – for smoothing wrinkles around the nose and mouth-will last 9-12 months.
The Bottom Line
Because each person has their own unique needs, it is not possible to say exactly how long your dermal fillers will last. The very best way to choose the best dermal filler for your needs and the one that will last the longest in your individual circumstances is to consult your skincare experts in person. They will discuss all of the options available to you as well as the benefits of each. This will enable you to make the most informed choice for your treatment!
