Cosmetic injectables are a viable option for many patients who wish to restore a more youthful facial appearance. Although this non-surgical treatment offers temporary improvement, people often rave about their results and love the subtle rejuvenation they can achieve without having to undergo a more invasive procedure. Just as candidates for injectables will vary based on the recommended type, so will the longevity of the results.
In general, patients can expect their results from neurotoxins – which includes BOTOX® Cosmetic and Dysport® – to last between four and six months. Dermal fillers, such as JUVÉDERM®, Restylane®, Sculptra® and Radiesse®, have shown to last a bit longer, often from six months to a year or longer. Patients who receive one of our advanced volumizers (i.e. JUVÉDERM VOLUMA™ XC and Restylane® Lyft) can see their enhancement last anywhere from six months to two years.
Depending on the amount of the injectable administered and the extent of your concerns, your results may vary. However, many patients will schedule follow-up treatments to preserve the positive results they achieve.
