How Long Do Cosmetic Injectable Treatments Last?

Injectables have revolutionized the fight against wrinkles and skin laxity, enabling many people to refinish their facial contours and eliminate their wrinkles without undergoing plastic surgery. 

There are two main types of injectables Dr. Richard M. Levin offers at Lancaster Plastic Surgery: injectables that paralyze muscles to relax wrinkles and injectables that fight wrinkles by adding volume to the face. 

Read on to find out how long cosmetic injectables last and what results you can expect to see with cosmetic injectables. 

Aging signs treated with injectables 

With the help of injectables, Dr. Levin can help you accomplish the following cosmetic goals:

Dr. Levin also offers a liquid facelift, which is a comprehensive injectable treatment used for mild to moderate signs of aging. This facelift is a personalized combination of injectables that rejuvenate the entire face. 

The effects of a liquid facelift can last anywhere between three months and a year, depending on the location of the injection and the amount injected. 

How long cosmetic injectables last

Injectables from the Juvederm® family contain hyaluronic acid. This substance attracts volume, enabling it to fill in areas where fat, muscle, and bone loss have occurred. Juvederm can both add plumpness to facial contours and soften lines caused by volume loss (such as marionette lines). 

On the forehead, upper eyelid, and the undereye area, most Juvederm injectables last about a year. Injectables for the temples, cheekbones, and mid-face can last between 15 months and 24 months, depending on the injectable used.

In the lips, chin, and jawline, injectables from the Juvederm family typically last around 12 months. 

Botox® injectables contain a neurotoxin that prevents muscles from contracting, which relaxes fine lines. You can expect your body to eliminate the neurotoxin after four to six months. 

Why some people retain injectables longer than others 

The rate at which your body eliminates the substance found in injectables is impacted by the speed of your metabolism. Patients with a higher metabolism may need to get cosmetic injections more often. 

Typically, patients who are lean and exercise on a regular basis need injections more often, as they metabolize the injectables faster than patients with a sedentary lifestyle.
