Which Dermal Filler Lasts Longer: Juvederm or Restylane?

When it comes to dermal fillers, there are many options available to help you achieve the look you desire. Two of the most popular fillers are Juvederm and Restylane. Both of these fillers are made from hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance in the body that helps keep skin hydrated and plump. But which one lasts longer? The results of JUVÉDERM can last between 1 and 2 years.

Restylane is used to treat the same areas of the face as JUVÉDERM, such as creases or lines around the nose, cheeks, and eyes. However, Restylane fillers typically last 6 to 18 months, depending on the target area. Juvederm has 35 percent more hyaluronic acid than has been cross-linked, creating a slightly more complex formula that some consider more durable. A stronger version called Juvederm Ultra Plus promises to last nine to twelve months.

Some dermal fillers have been studied to last about two years. The three fillers that tend to last the longest are Restylane Lyft, Restylane Defyne, Restylane Refyne, Juvederm, Voluma, Radiesse and Sculptra. Because Juvederm is made of a higher concentration of HA than Restylane, it tends to last longer. While the strongest Restylane filler, Restylane Lyft, lasts up to a year, Juvederm Voluma can last up to 2 years, making it the longest lasting temporary dermal filler available.

On average, Juvéderm lasts a little longer than Restylane. The newer products of both companies have varying longevity. Voluma from Juvéderm can last up to two years in some patients. The effects of both Juvederm and Restylane eventually require follow-up appointments and results may vary depending on the individual.

Juvederm and Restylane are currently the most durable and long-lasting dermal fillers on the market. Each collection has numerous products that meet different cosmetic needs. Some of the fillers, such as Juvederm Vollure and Restylane Kysse, are specifically designed to improve lip contour while others like Juvederm Voluma and Restylane Lyft smooth out wrinkles and add facial volume. Determining which filler (Juvéderm vs Restylane) is right for you is somewhat subjective and largely depends on your aesthetic goals and how your body processes fillers.

The main difference between the two fillers is their texture, and the granular nature of Restylane can make it a little more suitable for facial contouring.
