Home Treatments For Tired Eyes

We often get asked, how long do injectable fillers last? And in short, the answer is not that straight forward….

What are injectable fillers?

Injectable fillers are continually broken down in our tissue by enzymes called hyaluronidases. For this reason, hyaluronic acid (HA) fillers (the most common form of dermal filler) are considered temporary treatments.

The rate at which HA is broken down in the tissue is subject to many factors:

  • Characteristics of the filler itself (hard vs soft; HA concentration)
  • Activity of surrounding muscles
  • Lifestyle activities – medications, drug use, smoking, sun exposure, exercise, caffeine intake….
  • Anatomically where the filler is placed
  • Your underlying basal metabolism

Generally speaking though, softer fillers such as those used commonly in the lips and fine lines are expected to last anywhere from 6-18 months.

Harder fillers like we use frequently to provide structure along the jaw and cheek bones are usually expected to last longer, more like 12-24 months.
