How To Make Face Fillers Last Longer

Whether you’re getting your lips plumped or your cheeks filled, you want your results to last. Here’s how to make face fillers last longer, so you can enjoy the look of your new face all day and night.

Some of the most noticeable signs of aging can be combated with injectable products like Botox and dermal fillers. Though fillers and neurotoxins have long-lasting effects, they eventually wear off as the body breaks them down.

Injectable treatments can produce long-lasting results, but the duration of those results varies from 6 months to 2 years depending on the type of injectable used (see our dermal filler guide to compare the average longevity of various types of fillers). Injectable skin care solutions made from all-natural ingredients that are reabsorbed by the body over time.

In this article, we’ll discuss how to make filler dissolve faster naturally and how to make lip filler last longer.

How To Make Face Fillers Last Longer

We all want to look our best and thanks to fillers, we can. However, after spending a large amount of money on these fillers, you definitely want them to last as long as possible. The staff at Skinney Medspa would like to give some great tips that will help make you face filler last longer.


If you want to keep your fillers looking fresh, then make sure that you are exercising regularly. Exercise helps to flush out toxins and stimulates the lymphatic system. This will help your skin maintain a healthy glow, reduce puffiness and redness in the face, and improve the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines.

Exercise also helps increase blood circulation which can aid in cell regeneration for healthier-looking skin overall. It also increases serotonin levels which helps fight depression, reduces stress hormones like cortisol that cause aging effects on the body’s tissues due to sustained high levels of exposure (like a stressful job), improves sleep quality so that you’re rested enough for optimal healing during the day (this is especially important because it takes at least one hour after waking up before any kind of exercise should begin). Finally exercise increases endorphins which makes us feel good!

Avoid Salt

Avoid salt. Salt can cause your face to swell and sag, becoming irritated, red, or breaking down the skin. Using salt on your face will dehydrate it and cause it to sag even more.

Cold, Hot

Cold and hot compresses

Cold, hot compresses can all be used to help reduce the swelling, pain and redness associated with injections. However, cold is more effective at reducing inflammation than hot as it can lower your body temperature. This will help stop any bruising from occurring in the area of treatment for 48 hours after treatment. To use a cold compress:

  • Soak cotton wool or gauze in cold tap water and hold against the affected area until it warms up (for example, 5–10 minutes). Repeat this three times during the day. Or alternatively place ice cubes wrapped in a clean kitchen towel over the treated area for five minutes at a time three times daily.
  • Alternatively use an ice pack wrapped in a clean kitchen towel applied directly onto your face for around 15 minutes at a time throughout each day until you see improvement on your face fillers

Massage and Drink Water

  • Massage your face.
  • Drink lots of water, which helps to reduce swelling and flush out toxins.
  • The best way to care for your skin after having fillers is by drinking plenty of water and massaging the area where you had them done every day until they settle down into place and start looking natural on your face, which should take about a week or so depending on how many sessions you had done at once or if it was just one single session (like mine).

How to Make Botox Last Longer

In order to make your fillers last longer, there are some things you can do:

  • Avoid salt. You should avoid eating salty foods during the two weeks prior to your filler treatment. Salty foods can disrupt the results of your treatment and cause it to wear off faster than normal. If you eat a lot of sodium in general, ask your doctor about taking medication that will help lower your blood pressure before getting injections. This may be able to prevent any complications from occurring due to salt intake on the day of treatment.
  • Drink plenty of water throughout the day after getting filler injections in order for them last longer than usual (if they’re supposed to last a certain amount of time). Water helps keep skin healthy, which means it won’t dry out as easily as other parts might if you’re not drinking enough H2O each day–and this includes days where fillers were used!

Face fillers can make you look rejuvenated, but their lifespan is not long. There are ways to extend the effects of your facial filler, like exercising and drinking water. Avoiding salt and extreme temperatures helps as well. Finally, massaging the area often can help keep your face feeling fresh. These tricks will help you get the most out of your facial fillers.

How To Make Lip Filler Last Longer

There is no foolproof method for extending the life of fillers, but there are practices that can hasten the body’s absorption of the filler and lessen the effects. You can extend the life of your filler and keep it in top condition by avoiding these situations.

Due to the short recovery time associated with lip fillers, it can be tempting to return to normal activities immediately after treatment. However, it is essential that you adhere to the specific aftercare instructions provided by your healthcare provider after receiving injections.

It is possible to lessen the likelihood of swelling and bruising by taking certain measures, such as refraining from strenuous activity and alcoholic beverages for 24 hours following treatment. If you take care of your lips from the get-go, they will remain healthy and beautiful for much longer.

Here at Transform, we advocate using sunscreen daily, rain or shine (or cloudy in the UK!). and avoiding being outside between the hours of 11 and 3, when the sun is at its strongest. Protecting your lips from the sun is not only good for your health and appearance in general, but it may also help your lip fillers last longer. Some fillers degrade more rapidly when exposed to sunlight, increasing the likelihood that your body will take them in before you’d like.

Put on plenty of sunscreen while on vacation, keep your face and lips covered with a wide-brimmed hat, and take advantage of the shade whenever possible.

Third, try to reduce your stress levels as much as possible.
There are many ways in which stress can compromise our health, but one of these is the effect it can have on lip fillers. As your body produces more stress hormones, the filler in your lips can begin to degrade sooner than expected, leaving you with a flatter pout than you had planned.

The stresses of life are inevitable, but exploring different methods of dealing with them can help a lot (and lip volume).

Observe your exercise routine closely.
Physical and mental well-being benefit enormously from regular exercise. However, research suggests that those with a higher metabolic rate will also “work” the filler out of their systems more rapidly.

Of course, we’re not suggesting you stop working out to make your lip fillers last longer; rather, if you lead a particularly active lifestyle, you may want to schedule more frequent top-ups at 3 or 6 months.

We all enjoy a treat now and then, but frequent consumption of junk food has been linked to increased inflammation. This may hasten the decomposition of your dermal fillers. For the sake of maintaining a beautiful pout, we advise eating a diet rich in fruits and vegetables, along with healthy fats and oils like those found in fish and nuts.

We use a variety of Juvederm fillers (such as Hydrate, Smile, Ultra, Volift, Volbella, and Voluma) with varying thicknesses, so the longevity of your fillers may change depending on the type of filler used. If your filler is vanishing too quickly, discuss switching to a thicker filler type with your aesthetician at your next appointment.

    Our best advice is to stay on top of filler maintenance if you don’t want your pout size to fluctuate too much. If you go more than a year or two without getting your lips touched up, the results of the injections will be more pronounced because your lips will have reverted to their natural shape and size.

Talk to your aesthetician about how often you should visit for touch-ups so that your fillers appear to have lasted longer. Some patients find that after having 1 ml of filler injected at their initial appointment, they only need 0.5 ml at each subsequent appointment to keep their desired results.

Keep in mind that the effects of dermal fillers are only temporary, and that there is no magic bullet to make your lip injections last longer. However, you can keep them looking natural by taking care of your skin and health and paying attention to how fast your body metabolizes the filler.

How To Make Filler Dissolve Faster Naturally

Hyaluronidase injections can hasten the breakdown process that occurs naturally in the body over time.

By injecting more hyaluronidase, which the body already produces to break down fillers, the lips can return to their natural shape more quickly, typically within 3-4 days.
