Why Are Dermal Fillers Temporary and Not Permanent?

Dermal fillers are often used to reduce signs of aging, like fine lines, wrinkles, and volume loss—but most are designed to gradually wear off after several months. While this may sound inconvenient due to having to return for repeat dermal filler appointments, the fact that many fillers, such as JUVÉDERM®, are temporary actually helps patients achieve the most natural-looking results in the long run.

This is because the skin and bone structure of the face slowly change over time, creating an altered appearance. Permanent fillers don’t adjust to the changing facial contours, causing the material to look “out of place” and create an abnormal look after a few years. By getting filler injections on a periodic basis, your aesthetic professional can address your evolving needs to ensure you obtain the best possible outcome from each filler session.
