A quick injection of filler will give you smooth and pillowy lips for months. Your mileage may vary depending on factors such as the type of lip filler you choose, the dosage, and how fast your body metabolizes the product. Dr. Shaun Patel will discuss what kind of longevity you can expect during your consultation.
Most patients get 4-6 months out of options like Restylane® and Restylane® Refyne™. Meanwhile, Restylane® Kysse™ tends to last for 6-9 months. Kysse is a favorite new lip filler on the U.S. market, and we have seen longevity improvements with this product in our clinic.
Soft Fillers vs. Thick Fillers
Odds are you want your lips to look naturally and effortlessly plump after your filler appointment. To achieve that, you should opt for a flexible formula.
Soft fillers are perfect for redefining the lips. They treat thin and aging lips beautifully. Thick fillers, on the other hand, are better suited to restoring facial volume and sculpting the cheeks. They may take longer to fade, but the cost is that they tend to make lips look stiff.

Can You Make Your Lip Filler Last Longer?
The speed at which you metabolize your filler has a big effect on your results. There’s not much you can do to slow this process down. However, some patients like to accentuate their lips with moisture-boosting serums, light exfoliation, and a nude gloss between appointments.
What About Permanent Lip Fillers?
Permanent formulas can be tempting because they are cost-effective and low maintenance. However, they can’t be removed or dissolved if you don’t like the way they look.
Some people have also experienced serious side effects with silicone-based permanent fillers. Others have reported that their filler migrated outside of the treatment area over time. For these reasons, it’s in your best interest to stick with temporary options — even though they require some upkeep.
