Have you ever thought about the longevity of injectable dermal fillers? If you have an interest in dermal fillers but want to find out more about how long they last, then read on. Absolute Smile understands that many people wish to turn back the hands of time, or at least do what they can to reverse the aging process. This is where dermal fillers come in.

Many visible signs of aging can be traced back to a loss of volume in the skin. This happens because facial tissues thin out and lines become etched around the nose and mouth. You might even notice that your cheeks appear hollow. The good news is that dermal fillers can help replace some of this lost volume and provide you with a more youthful appearance. Dermal fillers can also help replace lost volume to leave you with plumper lips and smoother wrinkles.

The effects of dermal fillers vary with each person. The results also depend on the quality of the product being used, as well as the person who is receiving the treatment. Generally, the higher the quality of the product and the deeper the injection, the longer the filler will last. To maintain your results, repeat treatments will likely be necessary.
