How long does Restylane Dermal Filler Last?Many patients who want to receive Restylane dermal filler injectable dermatology treatment will be concerned about how long the effects of this FDA approved cosmetic dermatology filler may last.

The injection provider will address all issues during the initial consultation process, including the estimated longevity of the Restylane treatment.

Unique Molecular Cross-Linking

One of the key properties of Restylane dermal filler gel is that its molecules are cross-linked to each other. The filler has been specially designed to last longer through the cross-linking of the molecules. As a result, the Restylane gel will not disintegrate or break down quickly once it is deposited into the deeper layers of the skin in the targeted facial areas.

Unlike some other medical spa anti-aging injectables such as collagen injections that may only last for a month or two, Restylane filler gel injections tend to last considerably longer. However, it is essential to choose a qualified and judicious provider in order to achieve optimal results with Restylane filler.

Longevity Factors

The sustainability of Restylane filler gel treatment will differ from one patient to another due to many factors. One of the critical factors is the facial site where the treatment is performed. More static areas of the face will sustain the results for a more extended period than the areas which experience more frequent and dynamic movement, such as the lips.

The expertise of the dermatologist and the type of injection technique they apply will also influence the overall longevity and effectiveness of the procedure. Furthermore, each patient’s metabolism is different, and how fast the body metabolizes the filler gel will make an impact on the sustainability of results.

Individuals with rapid metabolic rate may only be able to retain the effects of Restylane filler for about three months, while in case of others the results may last for about six months or even more.

The precise timeline of results in case of Restylane dermal filler injections cannot be pre-determined. The volume of filler gel used for each patient may vary. If the provider injects too little or too much of the gel, the results may not last for as long as expected. Some providers may apply a smaller volume of the gel in too many areas, which can compromise the longevity of the results.

Average Sustainability of Results

On average, the results of Restylane dermal filler injectable treatment can last for about three to six months. In case of lip augmentation or treatment around the lip area, the effects will typically last for about three months due to the high mobility of the area. In areas such as cheeks and eyes, the results will usually last for about six months.

Why are all Dermal Fillers Temporary?

Soft tissue fillers typically contain hyaluronic acid, which is a compound that is naturally present in the skin. Hyaluronic acid is a natural compound that slowly breaks down within the body, and disappears eventually. Therefore, patients need to get additional treatments in future to maintain the outcomes after this breakdown occurs.
