Dermal lip fillers are a great option for those who want to enhance the volume in their lips. But dermal lip fillers don’t last forever! In this blog post, we will discuss dermal lip filler longevity and when you should come back for a consultation or re-treatment.
How long do Dermal Lip Fillers last?
Dermal lip fillers can last anywhere from six months to a year or more. This varies greatly due to individual metabolism and lifestyle factors such as exercise, smoking and environmental factors such as direct sun exposure. Also, if it is your first time getting lips fillers it is likely that your body will break down the filler faster. This means you will need to re-treat your lips sooner to maintain desired results.
Does the type of Dermal Lip Filler affect longevity?
Different dermal fillers have varying longevity depending on thickness and structure of the filler. It is undesirable to use a thicker filler, generally reserved for the cheeks, chin or jawline, in the lips due to it being a highly mobile area and the risk of visibility while talking and moving the mouth.
When should I come for a Dermal Lip Filler Review?
It is recommended that you attend a review of your lip fillers every six months, where your injector can assess your lips and discuss if there is a need for re-treatment. Regardless of the dermal filler used, lip fillers dissolve over time, and it’s normal to require a re-treatment every six months or so to create longer-lasting results.
