Aging saps the youthful fullness from our faces, creating hollowed-out areas and folds as we lose fat just below the skin. Injections of dermal fillers such as JUVÉDERM® and Restylane® restore this lost volume, softening creases and minimizing wrinkles. These anti-aging treatments are among the most popular aesthetic procedures in the world, and patients who get dermal fillers at our Guelph dermatology practice enjoy excellent results.
Fillers produce results that can last for several months to as many as 2 years, and routine touch-ups extend those results seamlessly. How often should you get filler injections? The answer depends on your specific filler, aesthetic goals, and skin tone. For example, hyaluronic acid fillers—which include JUVÉDERM Ultra and VOLUMA™ and Restylane Defyne and Refyne—typically last from 6 to 18 months. Scheduling touch-up treatments every 4 to 12 months ensures that you maintain your results. Fillers such as RADIESSE® and Sculptra® treat more severe volume loss in areas such as the cheeks; they last 18 to 24 months, so maintenance treatments are needed less often.
