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

One of the best investments in your skin is your daily skincare. Why? Because you can prevent many problems with blotchy skin color, lack of glow, texture, some types of acne, and fine lines with good skincare products. You can also correct some of these problems with effective skincare products. Great skincare is often more expensive because quality ingredients are expensive. Some companies spend on research/development which benefits all of us and adds to the cost. Are they worth it? In general - yes! I have handpicked some of what I consider to be the best skin care products, and offer them for sale on SkinTour's shop. This is based on my team and I's testing and research at our clinic. Many of the products are in my own regimen. What could be better than using skin care products a dermatologist uses?!
