The most visible signs of aging are typically due to volume loss. Extensive volume loss can lead to fine lines, wrinkles, crow’s feet, and sagging skin. Many people choose to combat these common signs of aging with dermal fillers. These injections can be used to smooth wrinkles, tighten and balance skin, and create a more youthful complexion.

Which Facial Fillers Last the Longest?

There are several types of facial injections that can be used on the designated treatment area to remove wrinkles, fine lines, and other signs of aging. The various types of fillers include:

Hyaluronic Acid Fillers

Did you know that hyaluronic acid occurs naturally within your body? This type of filler will help keep your skin hydrated, plump, and balanced. However, it is important to note that hyaluronic acid fillers are only temporary, often lasting between six and 12 months. Over time, the body will very gradually and naturally absorb the hyaluronic acid particles.

FDA-approved hyaluronic fillers include Juvéderm products (Juvéderm Ultra XC, Juvéderm VOLUMA, Juvéderm VOLBELLA), Restylane products (Restylane Silk, Restylane L, Restylane Lyft), and Belotero.

Calcium Hydroxylapatite (CaHA)

Like hyaluronic acid fillers, CaHA is naturally found within your body. As a filler, CaHA is used to stimulate your body’s natural collagen production. This filler is also used to minimize the appearance of deep lines and wrinkles. It is thicker than hyaluronic acid fillers, which is why it can last for 12 months or longer. Radiesse is an FDA-approved CaHA filler.

Poly-L-lactic Acid

Poly-L-lactic acid is a biodegradable substance that is commonly known as a collagen stimulator. In fact, it is also one of the most popular types of synthetic fillers and can last for up to two years in the majority of patients. This filler is typically used to smooth fine lines and increase your body’s natural collagen production. Sculptra is an FDA-approved Poly-L-lactic acid filler.
