While there are ways to try to avoid filler fatigue — namely working with an experienced professional — there are instances when fillers just might not be the perfect fit anymore. But not to worry: there are plenty of nonsurgical and surgical alternatives to fillers. 

1. Laser Skin Treatments

Like fillers, laser treatments can improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. They can also treat a number of other skin conditions, including sun damage, uneven skin tone or texture, acne scars and more. 

2. Thread Lift

Sometimes called a nonsurgical facelift, the thread lift is a cutting-edge anti-aging treatment that stimulates collagen and the skin’s natural healing process to smooth away wrinkles and creases, tighten skin and define the neck and jawline. 

Thread lift results can last for a year or more.

3. Eyelid Lift

An eyelid lift, also called blepharoplasty, is a surgical procedure that removes and tightens loose skin that otherwises causes drooping eyelids and tired-looking eyes. If you feel that injectables are no longer achieving the anti-aging results you are looking for, an eyelid lift may be a suitable solution.

4. Facelift

Similarly, many people choose to invest in a facelift rather than continuing with dermal fillers, especially once they begin noticing the effects of filler fatigue.
