What Happens When Dermal Fillers Wear Off?

Dermal fillers have been getting more and more popular in recent years, with more and more people getting them to correct small imperfections in their appearance or as part of regular anti-aging maintenance. But how long do dermal fillers last? Do you need to keep coming back to the doctor’s office to get dermal fillers or can you maintain your beauty using these products at home? 

What Are Dermal Fillers?

Skin is made up of two layers: The epidermis and dermis. Just below your epidermis, you’ll find your dermis, which contains fatty tissue and collagen. Injectable dermal fillers come in a variety of forms—from liquid hyaluronic acid to Botox or Juvederm. Their primary purpose is to plump up skin that has lost its elasticity due to age or injury.

Why Do People Get Dermal Fillers?

No two people have identical skin, and everyone has unique concerns about their appearance. That’s why people choose to get dermal fillers to address uneven skin, deep wrinkles, or unsightly scars. But what happens when these fillers wear off? If you’re considering getting injectables but are worried about how they might look after a while, here’s what you need to know: How Long Do Injectables Last?

How Long Do Dermal Fillers Last? 

A dermal filler injection typically lasts from six to 18 months, depending on which treatment you have and what kind of filler is used. This doesn’t mean that all fillers will be effective for that amount of time; in fact, results can vary based on a number of factors, including your age and how your body responds to treatments. The plastic surgeon who performs your treatment will assess how long it takes for your specific filler to start losing its effectiveness before determining an appropriate timeline for you.

What Happens When Dermal Fillers Wear Off? 

The longer you have a dermal filler, or any other type of cosmetic injectable for that matter, in your body, the chances are you’ll wonder what will happen when it wears off. The short answer is nothing bad. You might experience some minor and temporary side effects (depending on which filler(s) you had done), but ultimately there isn’t much to worry about. There’s also no need to schedule any additional appointments after your filler has worn off unless something went wrong during your procedure. Once your collagen levels rise back up to normal, regular skin maintenance—daily cleansing and use of SPF—will ensure your results last as long as possible (and minimize the chance of complications).
