How Long Do Dermal Fillers Last?

If you want to smooth out lines and wrinkles, restore lost facial volume, or improve the appearance of your features, dermal fillers can help. Injected under the skin, dermal fillers add volume that can enhance facial features and even areas elsewhere on the body.

What are Dermal Fillers?

Made of materials that will not react with the body, dermal fillers add volume and create a fuller, smoother appearance. One of our experienced aestheticians will inject the filler under the skin, and it will, immediately or over time, increase volume in the area. Dermal fillers can even produce enhancements such as lifted, fuller buttocks. 

How Do Dermal Fillers Work?

Dermal fillers come in several different materials and formulas, each suited for different applications. These include:


The Juvederm® family of dermal fillers works using hyaluronic acid. It includes several formulas, such as:

  • Juvederm® Volbella for plumper, fuller lips
  • Juvederm® Vollure for smoothing lines around the mouth and nose
  • Juvederm® Voluma to add volume in the cheeks and other areas


Another popular family of dermal fillers, Restylane®, can enhance the lips, fill out the cheeks, and smooth away lines and wrinkles. It uses different formulations of hyaluronic acid. 


Versatile and long-lasting, Radiesse® uses calcium hydroxylapatite to add immediate volume and increase collagen production over time for continuous improvements. 


A unique formulation of Poly-L-Lactic acid, Sculptra® works well in many areas, but at Manhattan Aesthetics, we use it to offer the Sculptra® butt lift, a nonsurgical, subtle buttock enhancement.

How Long Do Dermal Fillers Last?

Different types of dermal fillers have different lifespans. The body will eventually remove all dermal fillers, but some produce results that last even after they fade away. Hyaluronic acid fillers can generally last anywhere from six months to two years. Flexible formulas such as those intended for the lips will last six to twelve months, while sturdier fillers can last eighteen months or longer. 

Materials like calcium hydroxylapatite and Poly-L-Lactic acid, contained in Radiesse® and Sculptra®, stimulate collagen production. This collagen adds volume and firmness to the skin, lifting sagging areas and smoothing lines and wrinkles. These fillers and the resulting collagen can last two to three years

Is There Any Downtime With Dermal Fillers? 

Dermal fillers require no downtime. You can resume activities immediately after your injections. You may notice some swelling, bruising, or soreness for a day or two. The lack of downtime makes the Sculptra® butt lift an appealing alternative for those looking to avoid the extensive downtime of a surgical butt lift. 

Am I a Good Candidate for Dermal Fillers?

Dermal fillers are a safe and popular way to restore or enhance facial features as well as other parts of the body. If you have lines and wrinkles or want to restore lost volume, you may be a good candidate for dermal fillers. People who want to add volume and enhance their features may also make good candidates.
