Fillers are a great way to boost body confidence and provide changes to areas of the face without the need for invasive surgery. Their popularity has soared in recent years due to many celebrities and influencers opting for non-surgical procedures. Fillers are an affordable way to achieve your desired look without going under the knife.
However, like many non-surgical treatments, fillers are temporary, with results lasting anywhere between 6 months to 2 years depending on the type and amount of filler used. Other factors should also be taken into consideration, such as the metabolic rate at which your body breaks down filler. This varies from person to person, so it can be challenging to predict the longevity of filler. Further exposure to sunlight and smoking also influences how long facial filler will last.
At The Body Work Clinic, we understand that whilst you may be interested in the dermal filler, you’re worried about the outcome. The good news is that filler can be dissolved immediately with no scarring or lasting effects.
Why is filler so popular?
Many people opt for filler for a wide range of reasons. The main reason is to adjust the structure of the face and to reduce signs of ageing. Lip filler is one of the most common aesthetic treatments as it can provide healthier, more plump looking lips.
From Kylie Jenner to Megan Fox, fuller lips have become a cultural sensation, with thousands opting for filler as a way to enhance their looks. Filler is so popular because it can help each patient to achieve their treatment goals. Filler can be used to maintain lip shape or enhance the size, both of which can be attained through hyaluronic acid (HA) filler.
As we age, collagen production slows down, and cell structures weaken. As a result of this, skin becomes thinner and loses elasticity. Hyaluronic acid filler can quickly boost lip shape providing a more enhanced look lasting between 6 to 12 months.
Hyaluronic acid is found in every tissue of the body. It has a short life cycle in the skin, and as we age, we begin to produce less. Hyaluronic acid filler helps to provide volume and doesn’t break down as quickly as natural-forming HA.
Cheek filler is also a popular choice for those who want to slow down the signs of ageing. This is because cheek filler can quickly restore volume to more sunken cheeks resulting in a healthier glow to the face. Cheek fillers can instantly uplift your overall appearance giving you defined features for a younger, more natural-looking form.
Similar to lip filler, cheek filler often lasts up to 12 months. However, some clients can still see visible results for up to 18 months after their treatment.
What types of filler are used at The Body Work Clinic?
At The Body Work Clinic, we use Juvederm filler. Juvederm is one of the leading dermal filler brands globally and has been used in aesthetic treatments for over 20 years. Juvederm has a wide range of 100% tried and tested products. This means that we know what product to use for each client to help match your needs. Juvederm is a great filler for aesthetic treatments and produces natural-looking results.
We also use Profhilo which is a specially formulated hyaluronic acid to treat skin laxity. Profhilo is a hydration booster which stimulates collagen production resulting in a youthful glow. We recommend two treatment sessions at 30-day intervals; however, a third treatment can be performed two months later if needed. Maintenance of Profhilo is encouraged every 4 to 6 months.
How long does nose filler last?
Nose filler is known as non-surgical rhinoplasty and is a non-invasive way of removing dorsal bumps and creating nasal symmetry. In comparison to surgical nose jobs, a nasal filler is a quick option requiring no recovery time.
Inserting very small amounts of filler into the nose can help to correct a wide range of problems such as bumps and unevenness. Through dermal fillers, nose filler will usually last around 12 months.
However, as mentioned above, internal and external factors can influence how long your treatment will last. Each patient dissolves hyaluronic acid at a different rate, so these estimates are based on the average duration of treatment.
What is tear trough filler, and how long does it last?
Tear trough filler is a type of dermal filler that works to target the tired and aged area around the eyes. Through dermal filler, you can boost collagen production and overall volume resulting in a brighter appearance.
Tear trough filler can help to reduce the look of dark eye circles and bags as well as fine lines and sunken eyes, all of which gradually tend to appear with age.
As the dermal filler used at The Body Work Clinic is made from HA Juvederm, most patients find that it dissolves within a year.
One of the most important things to remember when considering filler is that it is temporary. If you’ve been struggling with low self-esteem or body confidence issues caused by your appearance, dermal fillers could solve your problem.
If you are not happy with the result, the effects can be reversed by your practitioner immediately with no damage caused to the face. This makes fillers a more popular treatment compared to surgery.
