When it comes to facial rejuvenation treatments, there can be understandable confusion about just how long the results last. In your journey to smoother, more youthful skin, you might consider a whole range of surgical and non-surgical options for cosmetic treatments, which will have a range of results.
The duration of your results will naturally vary depending on whether your facial rejuvenation treatment is a surgical or non-surgical option: surgical treatments, like facelifts, eye lifts and neck lifts, often last longer as they can be a more intense option. Non-surgical options, like dermal fillers and anti-wrinkle injections, need replenishing a little more often as the effects don’t last as long.
So, let’s consider non-surgical facial rejuvenation treatments. What are your options for non-surgical facial rejuvenation treatments, and how long do they tend to last?
Non-Surgical Facial Rejuvenation Treatments
Non-surgical facial rejuvenation treatments can include a range of different procedures. The two most popular of MPS’ range of non-surgical facial rejuvenation procedures are dermal fillers and anti-wrinkle injections. Each of these treatments offers a straightforward and non-surgical option to smoother, youthful skin, with blemishes and signs of age smoothed away. Let’s examine each of these treatment options along with how often you can expect to revisit the clinics:
Firstly, let’s consider anti-wrinkle injections. Commonly known as Botox, anti-wrinkle injections are favoured because they are able to tackle fine lines and wrinkles at the corner of your eyes, often known as crow’s feet, as well as the vertical lines that appear between your eyebrows.
Used because they do not typically result in scarring and there’s no surgery involved, anti-wrinkle injections can be an ideal alternative to surgical options.
So how often do you need anti-wrinkle injections re-done? Typically, the effects of anti-wrinkle injections last around 3 to 4 months. However, there are other factors which will determine how long your results can last, such as which area in particular is being treated, how your skin reacts to the treatment along with the amount of time your skin is exposed to the sun.
Dermal fillers are another alternative to surgical facial rejuvenation treatments, which tackle a similar - and equally common- set of issues elsewhere on the face. Fine lines and wrinkles can surround your mouth and nose - termed as the naso-labial folds - as well as the lines around the mouth and the lines extending out from the lips.
Dermal fillers are made of various kinds of natural and synthetic materials, which can be injected into the skin to restore a more youthful plumpness, as well as to replace volume loss associated with middle-aged facial ageing, plump out the lips and to contour the cheeks and chin.
When it comes to redoing dermal fillers, you’ll need to be returning approximately every 6 – 9 months for surface skin; while dermal fillers injected into deep areas typically last for between 12 – 24 months depending on the exact product used.
