Millions of people get dermal fillers each year. In 2018, the total number of procedures came in at more than two and a half million, and the process has only become more popular. This popularity has earned the process some attention, and in turn, even more curiosity.
One of the most common questions, of course, is what dermal fillers cost. What affects the price of the procedure? Do different doctors charge different amounts, or are costs relatively static?
This article will cover the cost of dermal fillers for face adjustment and what might change that cost.
What Determines Dermal Fillers Costs?
A dermal filler procedure’s cost increases with the number of syringes required to achieve the necessary look. Different doctors will recommend different amounts of filler. Some focus more on the age of the patient, while others look at how many areas you want to improve.
Different areas of the face also often come with different costs, but that still ultimately ties back to the number of syringes. Plumping up lips with dermal fillers won’t cost as much as dermal fillers under eyes cost.
In almost all cases, the number of syringes required will be the only thing that determines the cost. Make sure to schedule a consultation with your surgeon before you make any final budget decisions.
What’s the Cost of Dermal Fillers Per Syringe?
If costs come from the number of syringes, how much does each syringe cost? That’s where complications start to come in. Depending on the procedure, cosmetic surgeons have many dermal filler options.
The most common filler, hyaluronic acid, naturally occurs in the skin. It helps get rid of wrinkles and can last up to a year. Each syringe costs about $600.
Calcium hydroxylapatite, another common filler, can improve the volume of your cheeks and treat deeper wrinkles. Syringes of this filler cost about $700.
Artefill, which uses bovine collagen and biocompatible microspheres, comes in at a higher price point. Bellafill costs about $1000, but lasts longer and has results that improve with successive treatments.
Other dermal fillers cost about the same amount as these three. You can expect to pay between $600 and $1000 per syringe. Take some time to review more information on dermal fillers and consult with your surgeon before deciding on a filler.
What Do Similar Treatments Cost?
Some surgeons offer fat grafting, also known as lipoinjection, as well as dermal fillers. This uses a similar process, but the surgeon will transfer the fat from another part of your body to the face instead of using a regular filler.
Transferred body fat works better than most other dermal fillers, but unlike syringes of dermal fillers, costs can come in at as much as $5000 per treatment.
The Right Look for a New You
Dermal fillers cost less than many common alternative ways of addressing wrinkles and aging like facelifts. While seeing a high price point can cause a bit of sticker shock, consider them in comparison to other similar treatments.
