hannah I think you might be getting that part a bit confused.

You shouldn't overly rub the or squeeze the lips in the first 48hrs because it can move the juvederm around.

The last thing you want to do after shelling out big $$$$$$ for a specially skilled doctor to pump up your lips is to push it around with your clumsy hands!

I know cause I learnt the hard way

[QUOTE=doctornev;5022]Botox queen is correct.

There are many factors that affect the longevity of dermal fillers. The type of product used is one factor but not the only factor.

Other factors that can contribute to a longer persistence of your filler (restylane and juvederm been by far the most popular) are:

1. Volume of filler put into lips
2. How active your lips are
3. If the fillers are put into active areas, say deep static wrinkles, then the amount of movement in that area will negatively affect the duration
4. Cocommitant use of botox will help aid longevity for the reason above
5. The deepness you doctor inserts the juvederm/restylane
6. The most important factor seems to be the one that we have least control over. Every patient is individual and some will metabalise products faster than others. In the extreme some will metabolise all of their filler in 4 months, Some will last out to almot 12 months. The vast majority seem to fall into the 9-10 month range.

I agree with other posters. Juvederm is far too new for us to say definitively if it lasts longer. This is a complex thing to assess because of the reasons above. But the evidence seems to be promising.

I hope this helps some of our members,


I'm curious docnev.

Point 5 says "the deepness you put the restylane in."

Does this mean the deeper the filler is injected the longer it lasts. Or the converse?

I've never heard of this one before but its nice to read all of the points in one place now.

Rather than having to collate 4 or so threads worth of info

How come people only talk about juvederm or restylane here. What about some of the other fillers?

Do people have an opinion on things like collagen or radiesse or any of the other fillers?
