Dermal filler injections provide patients seeking to smooth away wrinkles and other signs of aging with a quick and painless solution with little to no downtime. Dermal fillers are approved by the FDA and can give quick results with the right aftercare practices. If you want to maintain a more youthful appearance, then dermal filler is a procedure to consider.
So how much do dermal filler injections cost? Dermal filler injections are typically priced per syringe. The overall cost of dermal fillers are affected by other factors such as the content of the filler, area of treatment, your location, the skill and experience of the person who will administer your shots and lastly, if there are any discounts or promos from your clinic of choice.
Majority of dermal fillers in the market are priced per syringe. For example, Juvederm has a price of $500 to $600. If this is your first time having a dermal injection for Juvederm and you have a more severe skin concern, then your injector will have to use a thicker formula for Juvederm. In turn, the price of your Juvederm filler injection will then cost $500 to $700.
There are other elements that can affect the price of dermal fillers. Here are some of them:
The type of filler you will be having impacts the price of your filler, aside from the severity of your skin concerns. Other patients may need multiple syringes of certain types of fillers to achieve their desired look. Types of facial fillers include these:
In principle, fat grafting removes excess and unwanted fat from a part of your body. After the fat is removed, it is transferred and used to smooth or to add volume to another area of your body. This is a minor procedure that takes place in an operating room. The procedure can also cause minor discomfort in the area from where the fat is removed.
Artefill is a cosmetic procedure with an average cost of $2,175 but it also ranges from $300 to $4,500. This procedure targets the nasolabial folds. The nasolabial folds are the lines that pass through the sides of your nose then through the corners of your lip area.
The content of the filler treatments you obtain also has an effect on the total cost of your dermal filler. How much of the needed content will be needed during your procedure is also another consideration. The content of filler injections usually are the following:
Hyaluronic acid is a natural substance that’s found in the fluids of the eyes and joints and is used for cosmetic surgery. It’s also the most common type of content used for fillers. An injection of this fluid is said to reduce wrinkles for a year.
A syringe of this material is priced at around $600 to $1,000. Hyaluronic acid fillers include Juvederm, Juvederm XC, Restylane Silk, Restylane Lyft, Restylane Kysse, and Allergan. Juvederm Ultra, in particular, targets the marionette lines.
Calcium hydroxylapatite has a price range of $650 to $1,000. This filler aids in restoring a more youthful glow to the skin and alleviates the signs of fat loss in the face. Radiesse injectables use calcium hydroxylapatite.
Polylactic acid has a price range beginning with $900 and ending with $1,000 per syringe. Polylactic acid is a filler treatment that can help boost your body’s production of collagen and is a stimulator type of dermal filler. For over 40 years, this substance has been used as material for sutures.
Polymethyl methacrylate is considered a filler that’s semi-permanent. It also treats deeper fine lines and wrinkles. Polymethyl methacrylate is priced at $11,00 per syringe. To achieve improvements in your appearance, it usually takes as little as 2 vials of the substance.
The cost of dermal fillers is dictated by the area where the dermal fillers will be injected. Some areas may require more fillers. For example, cheek augmentation uses more filler material compared to lip filler, which can help thin lips look more full.
How a dermal procedure is priced also depends on your location. If you live in a city with a high cost of living, then the price for your fillers will be high as well.
Whoever will inject your dermal fillers can influence both the cost and the success of your dermal fillers. There are several providers on the market offering varying prices for aesthetic procedures. Nowadays, fillers are available from beauty salons and med spas.
According to experts, the best option you can have for the injector of your dermal fillers is an experienced and board-certified dermatologist or plastic surgeon. The experience of your injector can also come into play in how much they will charge for their service.
Be wary of services with prices that are too good to be true. Although it may be lighter on the wallet, it’s much better to pay for a higher cost with an expert who has years of experience and expertise to back it up.
Dermal fillers and other cosmetic surgeries and procedures aren’t covered by medical HMO and insurance. Fortunately, there are several aesthetic practices that give discounts and different payment plans for the procedures that they offer.
Acquiring dermal filler treatment is a good solution if you want to maintain a more youthful appearance and correct any areas that you feel insecure about. The cost of dermal fillers injections depend on factors like your location, the area of treatment, the kind of filler and most importantly, the skill and experience of your cosmetic surgeon.
