What Are The Longest Lasting Dermal Fillers?
Dermal fillers are one of the most popular facial cosmetic procedures today. They provide smooth, supple skin, sculpted cheekbones and facial features, and a generally lifted, rejuvenated appearance. Dermal fillers are extremely versatile and can be used to address a wide range of concerns and achieve a variety of aesthetic goals.
However, these results aren’t permanent. The length of time the outstanding results of fillers last is an important factor when it comes to choosing the most ideal filler for your needs.
Which facial fillers last the longest?
Most fillers last between 6-12 months, but some last significantly longer. The longest lasting facial fillers are Sculptra and Bellafill, which generate structure under the skin and boost collagen production for years, but there are others that also last for a long period of time.
Let’s take a look at how long each of the longest-lasting fillers last.
- The RHA Collection–lasts for 9-18 months
Like the popular Juvederm and Restylane collections, the RHA Collection of fillers are hyaluronic-acid based. However, the RHA Collection is much more refined. RHA fillers are formulated to more closely and exactly mimic natural hyaluronic acid in the body. The RHA Collection of fillers target dynamic wrinkles without causing the face to appear stiff or unnatural, plump the lips and fill and smooth hollows.
- Radiesse–lasts for about 15 months
Radiesse is unique in that it is made with tiny spheres of calcium hydroxylapatite, which is a naturally-occuring substance found in the body. Radiesse restores lost facial volume in the cheeks and smooths wrinkles and folds. Further, it greatly boosts collagen production, which builds structure under the skin and regenerates new, healthy, youthful skin.
- Sculptra–lasts for two years
Sculptra is different from other fillers because it’s made from synthetic poly-L-lactic acid, which is also naturally produced by the body, Sculptra smooths facial creases, provides volume, and increases collagen production.
- Bellafill–lasts for five years
Bellafill is a completely different type of filler that is formulated with tiny polymethyl methacrylate (PMMA) microspheres. PMMA microspheres create a scaffold under the skin in order to rebuild, firm and plump it from the inside. Bellafill provides further enhancement over time by continually improving your skin for over a year. The results are extremely long-lasting.
