When you have injectable fillers, you often have to plan when your next appointment will be to ensure you maintain the look you’ve achieved. Many people are unaware that there are ways to increase the dermal fillers and make them last longer. Here are a few of the top ways to help your injectable fillers last longer to help you go longer in-between appointments.


1. Practice Consistent Skincare

Consistent skin care is key to making your fillers last longer, making it necessary to get into the habit of cleansing your skin in the morning and at night. Never leave your makeup on when heading to bed, and always lather the skin with a lot of moisturizers. This will gradually enhance the effect of the fillers.


2. Increase Your Water Intake

Drinking more water is an effective way to make the fillers last longer because they have a water-absorption effect. This is an easy way to prevent fine lines and wrinkles from developing. Increasing your water intake will also reduce inflammation and prevent your body from breaking down the fillers as quickly.


3. Stay Out of the Sun

Although your skin will hold up well in the sun, your fillers won’t, making it necessary to stay in the shade. Reduce your exposure to harmful UV rays to prevent the fillers from breaking down. Always wear sunscreen when spending time outdoors and opt for wearing wide-brimmed hats that shade your face if you plan to spend time in direct sunlight.


Blue light can also have the same effect, making it necessary to invest in blue light filters for your computer and smartphone.


4. Reduce Your Stress Levels

Reduce your stress levels to prevent your body from accelerating the aging process. Find ways to alleviate stress each day, which includes participating in meditation or exercising. Getting enough sleep can also increase your mood and allow you to have the ability to control your stress and anxiety in challenging circumstances or settings. Not only will it help to manage challenges that come up in life, but it’ll increase your fillers’ lifespan.


5. Consume More Zinc

Higher levels of zinc in the body can allow fillers to last longer, making it necessary to increase your intake through supplements or the foods that you enjoy in your diet. You can also get into the habit of taking a zinc supplement after each appointment when you get filler injectables.


6. Eat Cleaner

Avoid eating processed or packaged foods, which can have a direct impact on the quality of your skin. It’s also necessary to limit your sugar consumption, which can lead to fine lines and wrinkles while reducing the elasticity of your skin. Eating clean, whole foods can reduce inflammation in the body and prolong your fillers to ensure you can go longer in-between treatments at a location like Take Shape Plastic Surgery.
