Here we answer a commonly asked question, “how long do fillers last?”.

This guide explains what dermal fillers are and the different types available. We share the most common dermal filler treatment areas and provide insight into the longevity of the different types of facial dermal filler options available.

What Are Dermal Fillers?

Dermal fillers are a popular injectable facial treatment commonly used to:

  • Help smooth lines and creases
  • Hide deep acne scars
  • Minimize wrinkles.

Facial dermal fillers are injected beneath the skin to enhance skin aesthetics by returning long-lost youthful volume.

Although dermal fillers have been around for nearly 50 years, they have continued to change and advance over time.

Originally, dermal fillers were bovine collagen. But after learning that it caused excessive swelling and provided no great long-lasting results, the fillers were changed to hyaluronic acid.

Hyaluronic acid is a natural gooey substance found in our bodies, and when used as dermal fillers, has safe and long-lasting results.

Today, a variety of dermal fillers exist, including:

  • Calcium hydroxylapatite
  • Hyaluronic acid
  • Polyalkylimide
  • Polylactic acid
  • Polymethyl-methacrylate microspheres (PMMA)

How Do Dermal Fillers Work?

Dermal fillers are an injectable treatment most often used to help enhance facial volume, facial contour lines, and minimize wrinkles.

Two types of facial wrinkles are common:

  1. Static wrinkles are lines or folds in the face that are present and visible when a person’s face is resting and expressionless.
  2. Dynamic wrinkles are ones caused by repetitive muscle contractions, like smiling or squinting of the eyes.

By adding volume underneath the skin, dermal fillers are most effective in removing static fillers.
