One of the top questions our San Francisco patients have about BOTOX® and fillers is “How long do the results last?” There is not one correct answer, as longevity differs from person to person depending on several criteria. However, with our Illumination 360° approach, we do see results lasting longer as our patients move into the maintenance phase of their customized treatment plan. This is just one of the many benefits of allowing the experts at Mabrie Facial Institute to create and execute a plan for Your Perfect Face.
This chart provides guidelines for how long each injectable treatment is expected to last:
|Product||Treatment Area||How Long it Lasts|
|BOTOX® Cosmetic/Dysport®||Forehead, eyebrows, or crow’s feet||3 months|
|Restylane®||Under eyes||6-15 months|
|JUVÉDERM® Ultra||Lips||6-12 months|
|JUVÉDERM Ultra/Ultra Plus||Corners of mouth||6-12 months|
|JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC||Chin||15-24 months|
|JUVÉDERM VOLUMA® XC||Cheeks||12-24 months|
Naturally Longer-Lasting Results
Mabrie Facial Institute’s Illumination 360° approach to nonsurgical facial rejuvenation and contouring minimizes the imperfections of a patient’s face and highlights the chin, cheekbones, and nose—the defining points of the face. This comprehensive, multi-phase treatment plan is designed to provide long-lasting results with minimal maintenance at 6 to 9 month intervals.
Patients often begin to see results lasting longer after their second and third treatments, as the fillers stimulate the body’s natural production of collagen. Collagen is one of the essential building blocks of smoother, more youthful-looking skin. As you enjoy the results, we transition to the maintenance phase, which includes monitoring your progress and using strategic touch-up treatments that help you continue looking your best.
The Importance of Maintenance
The longevity of BOTOX and dermal fillers varies and the duration of your results will be influenced by your anatomy, metabolism, and the product used and area or areas treated. Returning for maintenance visits as recommended in your treatment plan helps extend the results. The reason it’s important to schedule appointments every 6 months or so for maintenance treatments is because our faces continue aging a bit during this time and fillers gradually dissolve.
