Dermal fillers are quickly becoming one of the most popular cosmetic procedures today as more and more people are turning to them to help restore youthful vigor to their faces. Their ability to reduce lines and wrinkles and restore lost volume through minimally invasive procedures only adds to their appeal.
One of the only downsides patients face from a dermal filler treatment is that results from many of the most popular dermal fillers are not permanent. Luckily though, not all dermal fillers are made the same, and some last longer than others. So which dermal fillers do last the longest? Here at Renu 180 we are proud to offer a variety of dermal fillers to help you reach your desired skin care results. Contact us today to set up a free consultation at our Southington, CT location to discuss which dermal filler would be best for you.
Restylane vs. Juvederm
The most popular dermal fillers available are Restylane and Juvederm. Both are formulated from a substance that is found naturally in your body called Hyaluronic Acid (HA). HA works by binding to water molecules and helping to restore moisture and volume to the skin. Over time, the body breaks down this HA, making touch-ups necessary to maintain results. The amount of time it takes to break down the HA however varies depending on the dermal filler’s formula.
Because Juvederm is made from a higher concentration of HA than Restylane is, it tends to last longer. While the strongest Restylane filler, Restylane Lyft, lasts up to a year, Juvederm Voluma can last up to 2 years, making it the longest lasting temporary dermal filler available. This is especially impressive when you consider that Restylane and Juvederm Ultra XC last between 6 to 9 months, and Juvederm and Restylane Silk last between 4 to 6 months.
