How long do fillers like Restylane/Juvederm last especially in the marionette lines?
I think there’s a lot of confusion about this. The very general answer is 4-9 months. Also, fillers will often begin to last longer as time goes on if you get treated 2-3 times a year in the beginning. This is partly because some of the base from the last treatment remains but may also be related to small but permanent collage building from the injections themselves. There is a version of Juvederm available in Europe and Canada called Voluma which lasts longer. This article of mouth and lip issues will provide you with more information in greater detail.
But the longevity really depends on a number of factors like your age, how much volume deficit you have to start with and whether it was filled adequately the first treatment – often that first treatment might require two syringes. Also, remember that some of the sagging around the marionette’s lines may be due to volume loss in your cheeks out lateral to the lines themselves and require a different strategy. Dr. I
