Ways to Make Filler Last Longer

Dermal fillers are one of the safest, most effective, and most convenient treatments to rejuvenate your appearance. One of the biggest perks of this aesthetic treatment is that it’s minimally invasive, with no downtime, scarring, or major risks. However, this also means that the results aren’t permanent. 

With filler results that you love, you’ll probably want them to last as long as possible. Read on for our best tips to prolong your dermal filler results!

Sleep on Your Back.

Especially in the first few days after receiving dermal fillers, try to sleep on your back. Sleeping on your side or stomach can impart pressure on the filler, causing it to shift or break down. By sleeping on your back, your filler will be left undisturbed. 

Hydrate, Hydrate, Hydrate. 

Most dermal fillers contain hyaluronic acid, which plumps and hydrates the skin by attracting moisture. Remaining hydrated by drinking plenty of water and moisturizing your skin will enhance and prolong the results of your fillers. 

Handle Your Skin Gently. 

Scrubbing, massaging, and otherwise manipulating your skin can damage your dermal fillers. Try to be gentle during your skincare routine by not pushing or rubbing your skin, especially in the first few days after your appointment

Shield Your Skin From the Sun. 

UV exposure from the sun is the enemy of long-lasting dermal fillers. While you should always wear sunscreen to prevent sun damage and premature skin aging, doing so is particularly important after receiving dermal fillers. Soon after your filler appointment, try to stay out of direct sunlight and wear SPF 30 – even if you’re spending the day indoors. Sunlight can reach you through the windows and break down your fillers.
