How Long Do Non-Surgical Facial Treatments Last?
Non-surgical facial treatments are a great alternative to surgery, but they aren’t always permanent. Your results can last months to years or even longer, depending on your procedure.
- Botox: The effects of Botox typically last around 3 to 4 months. However, as the duration is dependent on the paralytic effect, those with faster metabolisms may have less longevity. In any case, ongoing injections are required to maintain your appearance.
- Soft tissue fillers: The longevity of soft tissue fillers varies depending on the type of filler used. Generally, hyaluronic acid fillers like RHA last between 6 to 18 months though the specific area treated, and individual factors can also influence the duration.
- Facial fat grafting: Transplanted fat cells have the potential to be permanent as they integrate with your existing facial tissue. However, some fat absorption can occur over time, and touch-up procedures may be needed to maintain the desired volume. The longevity of facial fat grafting can vary among individuals, but the results are generally considered to be long-lasting compared to temporary fillers.
Your activity, health, and lifestyle will determine the longevity of your non-surgical facial treatment. It’s also essential to consider who will perform your procedure. When it comes to non-surgical facial treatments, Long Island has many options, but Harris Plastic Surgery stands out.
