How to make your dermal fillers last longer

How to make your dermal fillers last longer

Injectable products like Botox and dermal fillers are a great way to reverse common signs of aging. However, the effects of fillers and neurotoxins, while long-lasting, do eventually wear off as they are naturally degraded by the body.

Depending on the type of injectable used, the positive results of an injectable treatment can last anywhere from 6 months to 2 years (see our dermal filler guide to compare the average longevity of various types of fillers).

Want to make your Botox or dermal filler treatment last longer? Here are 6 things you can do for maximum length results:

SUN PROTECTION
Did you know that overexposure to the sun’s UV rays can actually reverse the benefits of your injectable treatment? This is why we encourage all filler patients to practice sound sun protection, especially post-treatment. Maintain your results for longer by using a high quality broad-spectrum sunscreen, avoiding the outdoors during peak UV hours, and wearing a wide-brimmed hat.

SKIN CARE
The benefits of injectables (like many other cosmetic treatments) will last longer for individuals who properly take care of their skin. Patients who moisturize daily and stay hydrated by drinking plenty of water will enhance the water-absorption effect of hyaluronic-based fillers, helping treated areas remain plump and wrinkle-free! There are a few products that were designed as an adjunct to toxins and fillers as well. Examples include Skin Better Lines, which helps maintain hyaluronic acid in areas and Revision Revox 7, which helps relax fine muscles to make your toxin last longer.

EATING RIGHT
The food you eat can directly affect both the appearance and health of your skin. In terms of maximizing the results of your filler we encourage patients to stay away from processed and packaged foods, as well as limiting the amount of sugar in your diet. Increased inflammation caused by these foods in your body is translated to your overall skin health.

EXTRA ZINC
Some studies have shown that Botox efficacy is linked to zinc levels within the body. Also, many individuals tend to have a slight zinc deficiency. Regularly taking a zinc supplement after your Botox treatment may prolong the anti-aging effects.

STRESS LESS
Stress is a common factor of day-to-day life. Whether stemming from your career, relationship, or finances, stress can negatively affect the body in many ways. In terms of the skin, high stress levels release of cortisol and other hormones which accelerate the aging process and rapidly enhance common unwanted signs of aging. To extend the benefits of your injectable try to reduce unnecessary stress-inducers form your life while incorporating stress relief techniques like meditation or yoga into your day.

MAINTENANCE TREATMENTS
The best way to extend the life of your Botox or filler results is to regularly undergo “maintenance” treatments before your results wear off. Recurrent treatments are especially useful for Botox as they may actually train targeted muscles respond to the neurotoxin for longer periods of time.

EXERCISE EFFECTS
Unfortunately, people that are avid workout-aholics may go through toxin and filler more quickly. There is no “fix” for this (and please don’t stop being active) but if you take precautions to not squint or scowl while working out (easier said than done) then you might not have as bad of an effect. One easy attempt is to wear hats or sunglasses while outside to avoid the strain of the bright sun.

HOW DOES JUVEDERM WORK?

Juvederm is currently the only approved hyaluronic acid dermal filler that has demonstrated its safety and effectiveness in patients of color.  Juvederm is developed using the proprietary Hylacross technology, a technologically advanced manufacturing process that results in a malleable  gel that flows easily into the skin and creates a smooth, natural look and feel. All other currently approved hyaluronic acid dermal fillers utilize a gel particle suspension formulation. These gel particles can be seen under magnification as opposed to the smooth formulation used in Juvederm. Juvederm is available in two formulations to allow for a tailored treatment to your unique needs. Juvederm Ultra provides versatility in contouring and volumizing facial wrinkles and folds. Juvederm Ultra Plus is a more robust formulation for volumizing and correcting deeper folds and wrinkles.

DIFFERENT TYPES OF JUVEDERM

There are multiple products within the Juvederm family that are designed for different uses:

  • Juvederm Ultra: The original Juvederm formula, Ultra is ideal for treating moderate lines and wrinkles, provides limited contouring and scar correction, and moderate lip enhancement. Results typically can last up to 9 months.
  • Juvederm Voluma: The first and only hyaluronic acid (HA) based dermal filler approved by the FDA to instantly increase the volume of the cheeks. Results last up to 2 years with fill correction.
  • Juvederm Volbella: A hyaluronic acid gel-based filler that uses patented Vycross technology to smooth lip lines and other fine lines and wrinkles around the mouth. Results last up to 12 months after treatment.
  • Juvederm Vollure: Juvederm’s newest filler designed to correct the most severe folds and wrinkles including the nasolabial folds. Results of Vollure can last up to 18 months.

HOW LONG DOES JUVEDERM LAST?

Juvederm typically provides optimal results with a single treatment. Juvederm is the only hyaluronic acid  filler FDA approved to last up to one year.

WHAT AREAS CAN BE TREATED WITH JUVEDERM?

As you age, the lines that form around your nose and mouth become more noticeable.  Juvederm is most commonly used to correct these different types of facial lines, including “parentheses lines” (nasolabial folds), smile lines, vertical lip lines, and marionette lines (lines formed near the chin). It can also help to define the lip border and give the appearance of a fuller lip.

INJECTABLES AND DERMAL FILLERS

DIFFERENT TYPES OF INJECTABLES

The availability of so many different types of injectables can be overwhelming.

NEUROTOXINS

Neuromuscular toxins are used for smoothing deep, persistent lines and wrinkles that develop over time. These injectables are derived from a family of neurotoxins that prevent nerve signals in muscles from contracting; they relax the facial muscles that cause lines and wrinkles. The positive effects of treatment by neuromuscular-based injectables usually lasts between 3 and 6 months.  Botox is most widely recognized product in the neurotoxin family.
