By: Nikki Brueggemann


When it comes to making enhancements to your facial features or reversing the unwanted signs of facial aging, one of the primary goals is achieving the longest-lasting results in the most convenient way possible. Injectable dermal fillers can accomplish both goals by offering almost instantaneous results that can be enjoyed for many months and, in some cases, up to a year or longer. At Washington Skin Solutions, registered nurse and aesthetic injector Nikki Brueggemann helps patients in Washington, MO, and the surrounding areas get the natural-looking, beautiful, and lasting improvements they desire with dermal filler injections. Read on to learn more about how long your filler results may last, which filler products may be right for you, and how they can help take your look to the next level.

What are dermal fillers?

Dermal fillers, sometimes known as wrinkle fillers, are a popular class of cosmetic injectables that are designed to enhance a person’s appearance by adding volume to naturally flat or thin features, restoring lost volume that occurred as a result of aging or weight loss, and/or filling in lines, wrinkles, and facial folds. There are a number of different types of fillers available today, with hyaluronic acid (HA) fillers being among the most widely used, thanks to the exceptionally natural-looking and feeling results they provide, as well as their potential for making lasting improvements and their ability to be dissolved (reversed) if desired. At Washington Skin Solutions, we are proud to offer a selection of the most exciting and effective HA fillers on the market, including:

  • Restylane®
  • RHA®

During your initial consultation and pretreatment evaluation, Nikki will closely evaluate your skin and listen to your unique concerns and goals. Based on this information, she will formulate a customized treatment plan that includes the specific filler products that are best suited to your needs.

Where can fillers be used on the face?

Filler injections for the face can help to enhance individual features, create better facial harmony, and restore a more youthful and refreshed overall look. Some of the most common concerns that can be improved or corrected with dermal filler injections include:

  • Lines and wrinkles
  • Facial folds
  • Sagging skin
  • Flat features
  • Thin lines
  • Hollow cheeks
  • Creases in the face

How long do fillers last?

The longevity of your facial filler results will depend on several variables, including which product is used, where the injections are placed, your natural skin elasticity, your lifestyle, and others. Our dedicated team shares in your desire to preserve your filler results for as long as possible and is committed to offering some of the longest-lasting fillers available. On average, the results of our HA-based fillers can last between 6 – 18 months.
