Any Way to Make Fillers Last Longer?
Yes and no – to some extent our metabolism of these products is unique to us and usually tracks with the average times listed. But here’s what does help.
Ask your provider to use (if appropriate) the forms of Restylane or Juvederm which are more highly crosslinked and last longer. The Restylane version is called Perlane and the Juvederm version is called Juvederm Ultra Plus. Both are FDA approved in the U.S. These should last closer to 9 months. When treating lips the “fuller” product may create too full a lip, but your dermatologist can advise you. Voluma, a Restylane product, is still not FDA approved in the U.S.
