5 Ways To Help Your Dermal Filler Last Longer

Whilst lip filler (and other types of filler) might appear to have been popularised almost overnight, lip fillers have actually been around since the early 19th century. Historians have found that injectable fillers (made of fat) were actually used to help treat the facial deformities of patients with tuberculosis, over 200 years ago. There is evidence that this treatment was then purely cosmetic by the early 1900s, meaning that fillers are certainly not a modern phenomenon. 
Fillers themselves have come on a long way over this period of time, but they are still only temporary. Their longevity depends not only on the type of filler used and its placement in the face but also on individual factors including lifestyle choices and metabolism. So, in this blog post, we’re going to outline 5 ways to help your dermal filler last longer that you might not have heard of…

5 Ways To Help Your Dermal Filler Last Longer 

01. Stay hydrated 

One way to extend the effects of a dermal filler treatment is to ensure that you are always well hydrated. Drinking lots of water is great for the skin generally, but even more so for keeping it plump and full.

02. Reduce your caffeine and alcohol consumption 

Linked to the previous point, both caffeine and alcohol have dehydrating effects. Cutting down on these is a great way to ensure your skin is well hydrated and nourished.

03. Ensure you’re using adequate sun protection 

Whilst it’s crucial to wear SPF every day, it’s even more important to ensure your skin is adequately protected, even on cloudy days, when you have filler. This is because too much UV exposure can cause certain types of filler to break down more quickly. 

04. Minimise your stress 

Easier said than done, but stress releases hormones that speed up the ageing process. This in turn causes fine lines and wrinkles, which break down the filler product. Incorporating stress relievers like yoga into your daily routine can help keep your stress levels down and help your filler to last longer.

05. Take good care of your skin.

A good skincare routine can help improve and extend the results of fillers. Not sure what products are right for your skin? Our Specialist Aesthetic Doctor can help you create a routine that is perfect for your skin using medical-grade products
