The Longevity of Dermal Fillers

Type of Filler

Different types of dermal fillers have varying longevity. Thicker, more robust fillers tend to last longer, while lighter fillers may offer more temporary results.

Treated Area

The location where the filler is injected can impact its longevity. Areas with frequent movements, such as the lips, may experience faster filler breakdown.

Metabolism and Lifestyle

Individual metabolism and lifestyle choices play a role in treatment longevity as well. Faster metabolisms can break down fillers more quickly, while healthy habits like staying hydrated and protecting skin from the sun can extend results.

Product Quality

The quality of the dermal filler product used also influences how long the results last. At Front Door MedSpa®, we prioritize using premium, FDA-approved products for optimal outcomes.

Injection Technique

The skill of the practitioner performing the injection is crucial. Precise injection techniques, like those practiced by our aesthetic medical professionals, can extend the filler’s distribution and longevity.

Volume Injected

The amount of filler injected at the injection site during each session can affect how long the results last. A conservative approach may lead to more gradual fading.

Extending Dermal Fillers Through Maintenance

After your procedure, it’s important to follow proper dermal filler aftercare guidelines to ensure optimal results and minimize any potential discomfort. Our Rochester aesthetic medical professionals are dedicated to guiding you through this process, so you can enjoy your refreshed look to the fullest. 

Immediate Post-Treatment Care

  • Icing: Applying ice packs or cold compresses to the treated areas for the first 24 to 48 hours can help reduce swelling and minimize bruising.
  • Avoid Touching or Rubbing: Refrain from touching, rubbing, or massaging the treated areas immediately after the procedure to avoid shifting the filler and disrupting the desired results.
  • Avoid Strenuous Activity: For the first 24 to 48 hours, avoid activities that could increase blood flow to the face, such as intense exercise or sauna sessions. This can help prevent excessive swelling.
  • Hydration: Drink plenty of water to keep your body and skin well-hydrated, as this can contribute to the longevity of your results.

Long-Term Aftercare Tips

  • Sun Protection: Shield your skin from harmful UV rays by using sunscreen with at least SPF 30 daily, even on cloudy days. Sun exposure can degrade dermal fillers and cause premature aging.
  • Avoid Extreme Temperatures: Avoid saunas, steam rooms, and very hot showers for at least two weeks after the treatment. Exposing your skin to extreme temperatures can increase the risk of swelling and bruising.
  • Avoid Alcohol and Blood Thinners: Refrain from consuming alcohol and blood-thinning medications for a few days before and after your treatment, as these substances can increase the risk of bruising.
  • Maintain a Healthy Lifestyle: A balanced diet rich in vitamins and minerals, regular exercise, and proper hydration can contribute to the overall health of your skin and enhance the longevity of your results.
  • Stay Hydrated: Hydrated skin retains dermal fillers better. Drink plenty of water to maintain skin elasticity and filler longevity.
  • Consistent Skin Care: Establish a solid skincare routine that includes gentle cleansing, moisturizing, and high-quality skincare products to support your skin’s health and appearance.
  • Consider Touch-Up Sessions: Schedule touch-up sessions as recommended by your practitioner. These sessions can help you maintain your desired results and address any subtle changes over time.

Monitoring and Follow-Up

  • Follow-Up Appointment: Schedule a follow-up appointment with our aesthetic professionals at Front Door MedSpa® as recommended. This allows us to assess your results, address any concerns, and make any necessary adjustments.
  • Report Any Issues: If you experience any unusual swelling, discomfort, or other concerns after the procedure, contact Front Door MedSpa® immediately. Your safety and satisfaction are our top priorities.
