How Do I Maintain my Dermal Filler?

Dermal filler treatments are temporary and will gradually fade away, requiring maintenance treatments. Here’s how you can maintain your dermal fillers

Dermal filler treatments  are one of the most popular non-surgical cosmetic treatments in the UK. Fillers are versatile treatments that can not only temporarily smooth out fine lines and wrinkles, but also restore lost facial volume.

However, dermal fillers are temporary and will gradually fade away, requiring maintenance treatments. Here’s how you can maintain your dermal fillers:

Follow dermal filler after-care guidelines

Immediately after getting fillers, you will be asked to follow the following aftercare:

  • Avoid any heat inducing activities for 24 hours such as strenuous exercise, spas, saunas and hot showers.
  • Avoid pressure on the area for the first 48 hours (no face down massages).
  • Avoid alcohol for 24 hours
  • Avoid active cosmeceutical products (AHAs, retinols, vitamin C) and oil-based makeup for 24 hours.
  • Avoid touching the face too to avoid infection.
  • Avoid facials, waxing, chemical peels, skin needling, microdermabrasion, IPL or laser treatments for 2 weeks after treatment.
  • Do not massage the treatment area unless instructed to do so.

Closely following all of these guidelines can help to ensure optimal results.


Use the proper skin care routine

While fillers can help you look younger, they work best when paired with the proper skin care routine for your specific skin type and concerns. Following a basic skin care routine with the right cleanser, moisturiser, anti-aging treatment products and spf can accompany dermal fillers perfectly.

Our VIVA Associate’s will be able to give you a personalised skincare routine during your appointment.


Follow a personalised dermal filler maintenance plan

It is important to note that no injectable treatment will last forever. The longevity of the product injected normally depends on the product used and what area was treated. Add to this the fact that everyone metabolises these products at a different rate, therefore it is important to keep an open mind to whether you will need a top up sooner than you thought.

Your VIVA injector will advise you on your maintenance plan which normally means, booking back in in 6 months for maximum results.

Furthermore, when we see patients for full face dermal filler treatments we often use 5+ mls in the first session. After this we usually maintain with 1-2mls every 6 months to keep the beautification ever-lasting!⁣


How long do dermal fillers last?

Most hyaluronic acid fillers tend to fall within the 6 to 18 month range. The expected longevity of your fillers will also depend on the specific brand, the location in which they’re injected, your metabolism and other factors.
