Question : Are there any fillers that last a year or more?
Answer : There are fillers that last a very long time. These are synthetic fillers. I always caution my patients with the long-acting fillers that once you put the filler in, if you do not like what it looks like or if there’s too much filler, there are not a lot of good options to change that. I often tell my patients that it may be better to use a filler that may last for 12 to 18 months and, at that point, if they’re not happy with it or think there’s something else that needs to be done, there is no problem because the filler is gone. Also, styles change. If you use a filler that is a very long-acting filler, this may be in place for a long time.
