How long will my skin treatments last?
4th January, 2019
Whilst aesthetic skin treatments can achieve excellent results, they won’t last forever unless they are administered regularly.
One of the commonest questions we get asked is how long our treatments last. Here is a rundown of what each skin treatment entails and how long you can expect it to last for, to help you decide which option is right for you.
Anti-wrinkle injections are used to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, particularly around the eyes and on the forehead. The treatment works by injecting Botox into the skin. The Botox then blocks nerve impulses to relax the muscles and reduce the appearance of wrinkles.
Anti-wrinkle treatments tend to last 4-6 months. The exact timescale varies from person to person as some people will break down the active ingredient quicker than others.
During a filler treatment a naturally occurring substance called hyaluronic acid is injected into the skin. Filler plumps up the skin to give it a fuller and younger appearance and help it to retain more water.
Filler injections usually last for around 6-9 months. Like anti-wrinkle injections, the exact timescale will depend on the individual as some people break down the filler quicker than others.
Skin peels remove the top layer of skin to help renew and revitalise skin and treat or reduce the appearance of conditions like acne, sun damage and enlarged pores. Removing the top layer of skin also encourages collagen production to give it a plumper and younger appearance.
How frequently you will require a skin peel to keep benefiting from the results will depend on the skin condition being treated. Frequency of treatments can vary from once a week to once every 3-4 weeks to achieve the desired result.
