Smile lines is one of the most common reason why people get fillers, and the treatments for smile lines have improved immensely over the years. What used to be an expensive, painful treatment is now inexpensive and pain-free thanks to tools like the Hyaluron Pen.
So with all of the improvements in tools and filler products, it’s no wonder that so many people ask me how long their treatments will last. Well let’s dive in!
On average, how long does a smile line filler treatment last?
To put it very simply, most fillers for smile lines will last 6-9 months. But there are some important things to consider, such as:
- The thickness of the filler used
- Your age
- How deep the lines are
For most smile line treatments, I recommend using a medium filler. A medium fillers used on wrinkles that aren’t too deep, you can expect the results to last about 6 to 9 months. If you have very deep smile lines, the results may not last as long unless your technician uses a thicker filler.
How can I determine what filler thickness I need?
During your consultation, your technician will evaluate your skin. Based on your desired result and the depth of your wrinkles, she will recommend a filler. If this is your first time getting a filler, it’s important to know that you may need more filler than someone who has received fillers before. Your skin will absorb the filler faster and the results may not last a long at first. Over time, your skin will retain the filler better.
So what do you think? It’s actually pretty simple! My best advice is to work with a technician that will give you realistic expectations for how long your filler will last!
