How Long do Dermal Fillers Last?

Dermal fillers are frequently used to address aesthetic concerns around the face and body. A lot of people don’t realize that there are plenty of dermal filler brands out there to choose from. At El Paso Cosmetic Surgery, we’ve picked the best and most impressive brands for our patients to take advantage of. This ensures you receive the top results – as well as results that last for a very long time. 

How long are we talking? That depends on a series of factors, all of which will be discussed below.

Dermal Fillers Overview

All dermal fillers are designed to be injectable treatments that enter your body and provide temporary effects. There are plenty of different dermal fillers out there, most of which are made up of hyaluronic solutions. This is a substance you find throughout your body, and it is mainly used to help hydrate and offer structure to the skin. However, you have some dermal fillers made from other solutions, but the premise behind them is the same.

The majority of dermal fillers will seek to treat the signs of aging and removing wrinkles by adding more volume to your face. 

Types of Dermal Fillers and How Long They Last

At El Paso Cosmetic Surgery, we offer two brands of dermal fillers:

  • Juvederm® 
  • Sculptra®

Within the Juvederm® range, there are lots of other products, and each one can have different effects that last for a certain period of months. If you’d like to learn more about how long each dermal filler lasts, continue reading. 

Juvederm® Voluma

Voluma is most commonly used to target the cheeks and chin, offering more definition in these areas. On average, Juvederm® Voluma will last up to 2 whole years before maintenance is required. 

Juvederm® Ultra or Ultra Plus

Ultra or Ultra Plus is used for lips and perioral area and they last up to 12 months

Juvederm® Vollure

By contrast, Juvederm® Vollure is primarily used to treat wrinkles and fine lines in the face. When looking at the average duration of its effects, Vollure tends to last up to 18 months. 

Juvederm® Volbella

The last member of the family is Juvederm® Volbella. Here, the injections are made mainly around the lips. This particular dermal filler is designed to add more plumpness and volume to this part of your face. In terms of duration, Volbella lasts 12 months on average. 


Next, we have Sculptra® – which is a dermal filler composed of poly-L-lactic acid (PLLA). PLLA is a collagen stimulator, meaning it encourages the growth of collagen proteins in your skin, adding more structure and volume to the cells. 

Sculptra® is largely used to tackle parts of the face and body that are suffering from fat loss. In the face, this usually means sunken cheeks or hollow eyes. It is one of the longest-lasting dermal fillers around, providing effects for up to 25 months.

Am I a Candidate for Dermal Fillers?

The dermal fillers offered by El Paso Cosmetic Surgery are FDA-approved and free from any allergens. They’re safe for the majority of the population, though we always advise getting a medical screening just to be safe. If you suffer from wrinkles, a loss of volume in your face, or thin lips, you could be a great candidate for some dermal fillers.
