You’ve heard a lot about dermal fillers, including how they can completely transform a person’s face by softening wrinkles and folds.
But exactly how long do dermal fillers last? Will you be able to enjoy your results for a while, or will you be in and out of the plastic surgeon’s office getting touch-up injections?
Wonder no more – we’ve got the inside scoop on how long dermal fillers really last.
How Long Do Dermal Fillers Last?
Dermal filler results largely depend on the type of dermal filler that’s being used, as well as the area that’s being treated. For example, lip augmentation results may only last for six to nine months due to having a more viscous formula, while mid-cheek fillers can last up to two years.
Bottom line? Your dermal fillers results can last anywhere from six to eighteen months.
How Much Do Dermal Fillers Cost?
Dermal fillers can have a wide price range, as a number of factors can influence the final cost. These factors include:
- The areas where the fillers are being placed
- The severity of the wrinkles and fine lines
- The brand of dermal filler
- How many injections are needed to achieve final results
That’s why dermal filler costs can range anywhere from $500 to $2,000.
The best way to find out how much your dermal filler treatment may cost is to schedule a consultation.
Are Dermal Fillers Safe?
Most dermal fillers are FDA-approved for the treatment of wrinkles, fine lines, and facial folds. That means patients can anticipate having a safe and successful dermal filler treatment.
A very small number of patients may find that they’re allergic to ingredients found in dermal fillers. In these rare cases, another anti-wrinkle option – like facial fat transfers – can be performed to minimize wrinkles and lines.
Dr. Aycock performed my liposuction years ago and I was so happy with the results that when it was time for fillers, I would not have considered any other medical group. Sandra is the injection nurse and she took the time to determine what my concerns were before the procedure. Then she worked on me like an artist, looking at me under different lighting and angles. I was very comfortable during the filler injections and couldn’t stop smiling. This is just the second day of recovery and I already see a major lessening of the folds around my mouth.
