How Long Does Chin Filler Last?
Chin filler consists of dermal filler injections into the chin to enhance the projection, size, and/or shape. Injecting fillers into the chin can have the added benefit of elongating the jawline and thus creating a slimmer, more defined jawline. Patients are often pleased with the results of their chin filler that they ask, “How long does chin filler last?”
The answer to this question depends on the type of filler the patient receives during their treatment. Certain hyaluronic acid fillers last longer than others. Additionally, a patient’s biology and lifestyle can also impact how long their chin filler results last. Patients who exercise frequently or are athletes may need their filler touched up more because their metabolism breaks the filler down faster.
Among some of the most popular chin fillers, the estimates for how long they will last without re-treatment are as follows:
- Juvederm Voluma: up to 24 months
- Restylane Defyne: up to 12 months
- Restylane Lyft: up to 12 months
- Sculptra: between two and five years
- Radiesse: up to 15 months
There are several factors that impact how long filler lasts. Some of these variables include:
- Area treated
- Amount of filler used
- Sun damage
Most of these factors the patient cannot control. To promote the longest lasting filler results, it is best to maintain a good skincare routine, wear SPF, avoid direct sun exposure, follow your injector’s aftercare instructions, and stay hydrated.
Choosing the right chin filler comes down to the results the patient wants, starting anatomy, budget, and several other factors. The patient’s injector will discuss all of their options and help them choose the one that best fits their needs. For people who have not had chin filler before and present with average anatomy, hyaluronic acid fillers are generally recommended. Semi-permanent options like Sculptra or Radiesse may be recommended in cases where a patient needs a major chin augmentation or has extreme facial thinning.
