How long does the Injectable Filler Restylane Last?
Longevity of results with a dermal filler treatment is an important issue to be considered when a patient is evaluating their options for facial rejuvenation. The cosmetic surgeon will discuss this aspect in detail about dermal filler procedures such as Restylane during the initial consultation process.
Muse Plastic Surgery is a state of the art practice offering both surgical and non-surgical aesthetic procedures. Led by double board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Wright Jones, the practice provides Restylane dermal filler injections to patients in Atlanta, Buckhead, Stockbridge, Marietta, GA, and surrounding locations.
One of the unique properties of Restylane dermal filler is that the molecules in the filler gel are cross-linked to each other. Cross linking of the molecules implies that this FDA approved filler gel has been specially treated to last longer. The gel will not break down or disintegrate quickly once it is injected into the deeper layers of the skin in the affected areas.
Unlike collagen injections that may only last for about one to two months, Restylane gel injections can last much longer. Plastic surgeon to the stars Dr. Wright Jones will recommend Restylane dermal filler treatment to suitable candidates after assessing their facial aging signs and their personal cosmetic goals.
Factors Affecting Sustainability
The longevity of results with Restylane dermal filler will vary depending on several factors. The location of the treated area will make a difference. Areas of the face that are more static in nature will sustain the results for a longer time, in comparison to areas which experience more dynamic and frequent movement, such as the lips.
The skill and experience of the Restylane provider and the type of technique they use will impact the longevity of results. How rapidly the patient’s body metabolizes the filler gel will also affect the sustainability of results. Candidates with a fast metabolism may only enjoy the results with Restylane for about three months, while in other cases the results may last for up to six months or more.
Celebrity plastic surgeon Dr. Jones will evaluate the unique factors for a patient and give them an indication of how long the results may sustain in their case with Restylane injections.
Average Duration of Results
Results will typically last for three months in case of lips because of high mobility of the area. Cheeks and mid-face can sustain Restylane results for about six months. Restylane traces can be retained in the body for up to 12 months, but the aesthetic impact will begin to decline after three to six months.
For under eye rejuvenation, this FDA approved filler is considered to be most effective with extended sustainability. In most cases, the results with a single injection treatment can last for up to a year in the under eye area. However, patients should be made aware that individual results can vary depending on the specific factors involved in a case.
