How Can I Make My Fillers Last Longer?

Growing older is a beautiful journey filled with blessings and life experiences. However, it also comes with visible signs of aging, such as wrinkles and a loss of youthful skin. Fortunately, we have Dermal Fillers, offering us a path to maintain that radiant, ever-young appearance.

At True Jewel Cosmetic Center, we are committed to providing the best skin treatments, using top-quality dermal fillers to help you achieve that radiant, youthful look.

Join us as we explore Dermal Fillers and discover how you can ensure your fillers last as long as possible.

What Are Dermal Fillers?

As we age, the natural supply of collagen in our skin decreases, resulting in a loss of volume and the appearance of wrinkles. Dermal fillers, often called wrinkle fillers, offer an ingenious solution. These gel-like substances do more than address wrinkles; they treat facial folds, restore facial volume, and boost collagen levels, resulting in smoother, plumper skin.

Dermal fillers are administered via injections directly into the skin, counteracting the decline of skin tissues. They stimulate collagen synthesis in your skin, promoting a natural rejuvenation process.

At True Jewel Cosmetic Center, our clinicians focus on specific areas such as the lips, cheeks, chin, and under the eyes. It’s important to note that this treatment requires skill, expertise, and qualities our True Jewel Cosmetic Center staff possess.

Dermal Filler Treatments Offered at True Jewel Cosmetic Center

Everyone has unique skin types, so we offer a range of dermal fillers, each designed for specific purposes. Our clinicians carefully assess your skin type during a comprehensive consultation before recommending the most suitable dermal filler.

Our fillers are crafted from Poly-L-lactic acid, Calcium hydroxylapatite, and hyaluronic acid, a natural skin ingredient that enhances moisture production, resulting in a fresher appearance. Hyaluronic acid typically lasts about a year in the body.

Some of the top brands and fillers used at True Jewel Cosmetic Center include:

Juvéderm

  • Ultra XC: Ideal for enhancing lip suppleness
  • Volbella XC: Used to improve the appearance of perioral lines and lip suppleness
  • Voluma XC: Administered in the cheeks to restore lost volume
  • Vollure XC: Effective for increasing skin volume and reducing wrinkles, especially around the nasal region

Restylane

  • Restylane Defyne: Suitable for treating facial lines, including laugh lines, nasolabial lines, and lines around the lips and nose
  • Restylane Kysse: Tailored for the lips to improve suppleness and reduce smile lines
  • Restylane-L: Popular for its natural feel, it is injected into the lips and under the eyes
  • Restylane Lyft: Beneficial for reducing wrinkles and adding volume to the cheeks, as well as improving the texture of the hands

Other notable filler brands used include Sculptra and Radiesse.

How Long Do Dermal Fillers Last?

Dermal fillers provide temporary results, and their longevity varies depending on several factors.

Most hyaluronic acid dermal fillers last between 6 and 18 months. However, the duration can vary from person to person and depends on factors such as the area treated, the amount of filler used, the type of filler, your lifestyle, and metabolism.

How Can I Make My Dermal Filler Results Last Longer?

While dermal fillers are not permanent, there are steps you can take to extend their longevity. Here are nine tips to help you maintain your filler results for as long as possible:

Follow Dermal Filler After-Care Guidelines

  • Avoid heat-inducing activities for the first 24 hours, such as strenuous exercise, saunas, and hot showers.
  • Refrain from applying pressure to the treated area for the initial 48 hours.
  • Avoid alcohol for the first 24 hours.
  • Steer clear of active cosmeceutical products (AHA, retinol, vitamin C) and oil-based makeup for 24 hours.
  • Avoid touching your face to prevent infection.
  • Refrain from facials, waxing, chemical peels, and other skin treatments for two weeks after your filler treatment.
  • Only massage the treated area if instructed to do so.

Have a Proper Skincare Routine

Pair your filler treatment with a suitable skincare routine addressing your skin type and concerns. Use a cleanser, moisturizer, anti-aging products, and SPF for optimal results

Follow a Personalized Dermal Filler Maintenance Plan:

Understand that no injectable treatment lasts forever. The product’s longevity depends on factors like the type of filler and the treated area. Your clinician will advise you on a maintenance plan, which may involve touch-up appointments every six months.

Stay Hydrated

Drink plenty of water to keep your skin hydrated and maintain your filler results. Additionally, use ultra-hydrating skincare products to reduce inflammation and slow down the breakdown of injectables.

Choose a Skilled Injector

Opt for an experienced, board-certified injector, like the ones at True Jewel, who can ensure appropriate dosing and precise injections for longer-lasting results.

Avoid UV Exposure

Protect your skin from UV radiation by using high-quality, broad-spectrum sunscreen and covering up with a hat. Overexposure to the sun can reverse the benefits of your filler treatment.

Eat a Healthy, Balanced Diet

Maintain a diet rich in whole foods and limit processed and refined sugars. A healthy diet can reduce inflammation and support skin health.

Be Gentle to Your Skin

Especially in the days and weeks following your filler treatment, avoid facials with heavy pressure, sleeping on the treated area, wearing heavy glasses on the nose (if you’ve had a non-surgical rhinoplasty), and excessive touching of your face.

Try to Avoid Stress

High stress levels can release hormones that accelerate the aging process and affect the longevity of your filler results. Incorporate stress-relief techniques such as meditation or yoga into your daily routine.

Why Choosing a Skilled Injector Is Important

Selecting an experienced, board-certified injector is crucial for extending the time between filler appointments. Precise injections and appropriate dosing by a skilled injector lead to longer-lasting results. The quality of results and reduced need for frequent touch-up visits make it a worthwhile investment.

Maintenance Sessions: What About Touch-Ups?

Maintenance appointments play a pivotal role in prolonging the effects of your injectable treatments. Regular maintenance treatments and touch-up sessions can be considered to maintain filler results. However, discussing a maintenance plan with your injector before undergoing treatment is essential.

Fabulously Filled
