How Long Do Cosmetic Injectables Last?

How long do injections lastThe answer to this question will depend on a number of different factors, including the specific cosmetic injectable administered, the particular concern it is used to address, and how the solution reacts with your body. Generally speaking, however, the effects of BOTOX® Cosmetic, Dysport®, and Xeomin® will restrict muscle contraction in the targeted area for approximately three months. Results attained with dermal fillers such as Restylane® and JUVÉDERM® tend to endure for about six months or longer, though this might vary based on where treatment is administered. For instance, when JUVÉDERM® is employed to diminish lines around the nose and mouth, its effects can often be visible for nine to twelve months.

JUVÉDERM VOLUMA XC is relatively new in comparison to other cosmetic injectables, though clinical trials have shown that its results often last two years, if not longer. Lastly, the effects of BELOTERO BALANCE® generally persist for six to nine months, but this may vary from patient to patient.

Ultimately, when it comes to cosmetic injectables, it is important to keep in mind that the effects of treatment will be unique to every person – some results could last longer, some results could last shorter. Every injectable option has distinct advantages for certain aging concerns, and the most appropriate option for your specific needs and goals can be selected during a consultation with a qualified and experienced provider.
