If you’re having facial fillers from our Milwaukee-area injectors, remember that the results will be long-lasting, but temporary. All facial fillers are eventually metabolized by the body, with the added volume gradually receding over time. Regardless of what type of filler they’ve had—whether Juvéderm®, Restylane®, RHA®, or something else—patients will eventually have to have additional injections to maintain the skin-smoothing and facial-contouring effects they enjoy.
The duration of results varies depending on the filler used, the injection site, the severity of the condition being treated, and the individual person, since everyone metabolizes fillers at different rates. As the filler is broken down, the wrinkles or sagging that were apparent prior to the injections will gradually re-appear.
Here’s what you can do to maximize the results from dermal fillers and make them last for as long as possible.
1. Have a Great Skin Care Routine
Even though fillers conceal wrinkles, you still need a proper skin care routine during the rest of the year so that your overall complexion looks great and your skin is healthy. This regimen should include cleansing, moisturizing, exfoliation, sun protection, and anti-aging products. Tailor your skin care routine to your specific skin type and concerns.
2. Avoid Sun Damage
Time and time again, we’re warned about the damaging effects of exposure to UV rays—and even after you’ve had fillers, your skin can still be affected. It’s a good idea to wear daily sunscreen and avoid heavy sun exposure if you want to prevent premature aging.
3. Get Regular Repeat Injections
Just like maintaining your hair and nails, fillers need upkeep if you want them to look their best. Don’t get too lax about your appointments if you want to retain a certain look from fillers. By scheduling routine visits, you’ll notice few unwanted changes to your filler-enhanced appearance over time.
