It is very frustrating to get injectable fillers and have them degrade so quickly that you have to go back to the doctor within a short while for a touch-up. Although non-surgical cosmetic treatment may not last forever, and irrespective of the material, or treatment used and the doctor performing the procedure, you will need a touch up at some point. However, your cosmetic treatment, like lip fillers, should last for a long time.
There are different ways to ensure that your injectable treatment lasts long and reduce your frequency to the doctor for touch-ups. The longevity of your injectable filler depends on several factors like the amount and type of your filler. It also depends on your metabolic rate. Your metabolic rate affects how fast the injectable degrades in your body, so some people’s fillers may last longer than others even when the same brand is used.
Hyaluronic acid fillers can last for as little as three months or as long as two years. Your doctor may not be able to guarantee you how long your fillers will last, but there are a couple of things you can do to increase the lifespan of your injectable filler. They include the following.
The location of the filling
Just like in the real estate business, the place you receive your filler matters and may affect the longevity of the filler. Face movement is inevitable, so, the fillers would break down at some point. However, some areas of the face are less likely to undergo aggressive and regular movement.
For example, your mouth experiences more movement than your tear trough. You eat a couple of times a day and talk, so your tear trough filler will last longer than your mouth filler. Mouth fillers tend to last for about 3 ? 6 months because we use or mouth more than other facial while a tear trough filler will likely last for about five years.
Irrespective of the location of your filler, it doesn’t just dissolve suddenly. Fillers tend to dissolve gradually, and the process is similar to the melting of an ice cube over time.
Reduce the pressure
After you get your filler, try not to touch the location of the filling. If you apply excess pressure on the area where you got the injectable, you could damage the work done by your doctor.
If you got a nose filling and you always wear glasses which sits heavily on your nose, it could shorten the lifespan of your non-surgical rhinoplasty. Undergoing cleaning facials may also cause your facial filling to degrade faster. The same applies to sleeping on your stomach or side. You can liken applying excess pressure on your filling to stirring sugar in your cup of tea. The more your stir the sugar, the faster it dissolves.
However, daily movements that cause you to apply a little pressure like blowing your nose or applying make-up would not cause a drastic degradation of the filler.
Get regular touch-ups
One way to ensure your injectables last longer is to get more fillers. Ensure you have regular maintenance sessions, so your fillers continue to remain prominent, and your appearance remains the same.
Some people let their filler completely degrade before having a touch-up session, but this may not be advisable because your appearance tends to change if you wait for the filler to degrade before attending your maintenance sessions. A little amount of your filler injected at regular intervals ensures that the effect of your filler lasts longer.
Consider the future
People with fast metabolic rate might feel frustrated about how quickly their fillers degrade, but you can ensure your fillers last longer even if you have a fast metabolic rate. Recent research has brought about some new fillers which tend to last longer. For example, new fillers for non-surgical rhinoplasty can last for about five years as against the previous 8 ? 16 months.
Researchers are currently looking to produce fillers that are safer, more natural-looking and long-lasting. These research aim to make available fillers that retain the current fillers’ upsides but do not require regular maintenance.
Ensure you consider what makes you happy before getting your injectable fillers because the main aim of cosmetic treatments is to make people feel more confident about themselves. Do not forget to always opt for an experienced cosmetic professional for your injectable fillers.
