Once the optimal shape has been achieved, there is no specific maintenance requirement and you may enjoy the benefits of the soft tissue filler and dermal filler rejuvenation until it has been depleted and requires reinjection therapy. Generally, reinjection therapy is not maintenance treatment but a “top up” procedure. Reinjection therapy is when there has been a significant depletion of the hyaluronic acid fillers or the bio-stimulatory filler effect and this can occur anywhere from one to three years and repeat restoration of the aesthetic effects of the soft tissue fillers are then performed.
