How Long Can Laugh Lines Stay Smooth After JUVÉDERM®?

Featured Image

Laugh lines, also known as nasolabial folds, are deep creases that run from the nose down to the corners of the mouth. They're a natural part of aging and only become more prominent over time. Now, with the help of cosmetic injections like JUVÉDERM, we can smooth out these unwanted lines. But how long do dermal fillers last?

Though JUVÉDERM injections can last up to one year or more, several factors can affect this timeline. Call now for an assessment at Advanced Dermatology in Katy, Pearland, League City, or Sugar Land, TX, and we'll provide more information about the expected results. Our patients in the Greater Houston area are excited to see how JUVÉDERM can transform their appearance.

Why are laugh lines so prominent?

As we age, our skin changes and becomes more susceptible to fine lines and creases. One contributing factor is a loss of collagen and elastin, both of which keep our skin plump and hydrated.

In addition to natural aging, lifestyle choices such as smoking, excessive sun exposure, and poor skin care habits also lead to the development of nasolabial folds. These habits accelerate the breakdown of collagen and elastin, making laugh lines more pronounced.

How does JUVÉDERM work?

JUVÉDERM is a type of dermal filler created from hyaluronic acid (HA), a naturally occurring substance. When injected into the skin, HA adds volume to the area, effectively filling in wrinkles. It also helps attract and retain moisture, giving the skin a more youthful look.

JUVÉDERM is specifically designed to target different areas of the face, including the area around the nose and mouth. The treatment involves a series of small injections along the nasolabial folds, which may cause some mild discomfort, but the process is generally well-tolerated by patients.

How long do JUVÉDERM injections last?

JUVÉDERM can last around a year, but this timeline varies based on a number of factors, including:

  • The amount of filler used: Patients who receive a higher volume of JUVÉDERM may see longer-lasting results than those who receive a small amount.
  • Metabolism: JUVÉDERM is broken down and absorbed by the body over time. Patients with a faster metabolism may see their outcomes fade faster.
  • Lifestyle choices: Poor habits such as smoking and excessive sun exposure accelerate the breakdown of HA in the skin.

If you're still unsure about your expected results, our professionals can provide an accurate timeline during a consultation.

How to prolong the effects of JUVÉDERM

To maximize the longevity of JUVÉDERM, we recommend following a healthy skin care routine and avoiding habits that damage the skin. This includes wearing sunscreen daily, staying hydrated, and using moisturizers and serums containing hyaluronic acid to keep laugh lines at bay.

We also offer maintenance treatments at Advanced Dermatology, as needed, to touch up areas that start to show signs of aging. With consistent care, you can enjoy the benefits of JUVÉDERM injections for even longer.
