How Long withh Facial Fillers Last

 
Hi and thank you for your question! The longevity of filler in face is primarily dependent on the type of filler and it can range from 6 months to 2 years for commonly used hyaluronic acid fillers. Assuming that you got Voluma, it is generally expected to last up to 2 years although individual results may vary. Regardless, one of the advantages of hyaluronic acid fillers such as Voluma is that we can easily revise or dissolve them with enzyme injection and if you are not happy with the results, you don’t have to wait for the filler to go away on its own and it can be dissolved by your doctor if needed. I hope it helps and good luck!
