Cosmetic Injectables: How Long Do Results Last?
Injectable treatments are one of the most popular methods of treating early signs of facial aging. Neurotoxins and dermal fillers can smooth fine lines, wrinkles, and deep folds while also addressing volume loss. Common cosmetic concerns treated with injectables include crow’s feet, nasolabial folds, horizontal lines across the brow, and vertical lines between the eyebrows as well as thinning lips or hollowed cheeks and tear troughs. While cosmetic injectables can successfully minimize these common signs of age, patients frequently ask how long they can expect the results to last. The duration of the final outcome will vary slightly from patient to patient; however, the following guidelines can be used to help predict typical results:
- BOTOX® Cosmetic: 3-6 months
- Dysport®: up to 6 months
- Restylane®: 6-9 months or longer
- JUVÉDERM®: 6-12 months
During the consultation process, one of our board-certified plastic surgeons will examine your unique facial anatomy, discuss your individual cosmetic concerns and expectations, and help decide which injectable or combination of injectables can best meet your needs. Though the results of cosmetic injectables are not permanent, follow-up treatments can be used to easily maintain smoother, more youthful looking skin.
