Your Guide To Dermal Fillers Pricing
If you, like many of us, have been curious about dermal fillers, we’re here to clear up the confusion. Dermal fillers are cosmetic treatments designed to restore volume and rejuvenate the skin’s appearance. They have been around for years and are considered safe and effective when applied by a professional. Like many, you may be curious about dermal fillers pricing and related costs.
Cosmetic fillers are injectable substances used to address wrinkles and fine lines and restore lost facial volume. This procedure provided a new opportunity for those looking to improve their facial contours without opting for painful surgery with a long recovery time. Fillers are typically made from materials such as hyaluronic acid, calcium hydroxylapatite, or poly-L-lactic acid.
Hyaluronic acid fillers are the most common; they work by attracting water molecules and retaining moisture under the skin. The result is a plumping of the skin which can effectively smooth wrinkles. Calcium hydroxylapatite and poly-L-lactic acid fillers stimulate collagen production, providing longer-lasting results and improving skin texture.
What to Expect During Treatment
When you come to our office for a Dermal Filler, our staff will examine the area you’d like treated. We will discuss treatment options and your aesthetic goals. Then we will apply a topical numbing cream if needed and injects the chosen filler into specific areas of the face, like the cheeks, lips, or nasolabial folds. The treatment is quick and minimally invasive, often requiring little to no downtime.
What’s the Recovery Like?
Most patients don’t require any recovery time. Of course, each person is different, and after injecting dermal filler, it is perfectly normal to experience some mild swelling, bruising, or redness at injection sites, which typically subsides in a few days. Most people only experience mild discomfort and find the side effects mild and pass within a few days.
How Long Do Results Last?
Unfortunately, dermal fillers are not a permanent solution. They offer temporary results. However, they are long-lasting; clients typically expect their fillers to last several months to a year, depending on the type used and individual factors. One of the biggest benefits of choosing dermal fillers over a surgical option is that they provide a customizable approach to facial rejuvenation, allowing individuals to achieve a more youthful and refreshed appearance that’s subtle and more natural. However, it’s important to consult with a qualified medical practitioner to determine the most suitable type of filler and treatment plan for your specific needs and goals.
What Filler is Best For Me?
With so many fillers on the market, it’s hard to know which filler is right for you. Leave that to us. At Aiken Medical Aesthetics, we only work with the best products on the market. We’ve worked hard to do the research and obtain the proper training for each product line we carry, which means that our practitioners understand the benefits and limitations of each product we use.
So when you work with us, we’ll create a custom treatment plan based on your aesthetic goals; we’ll explain the differences in the types of fillers we offer and help you determine which one is right for each treatment area you’d like to address. We will always advise you based on our rigorous training and research. We believe in the products we carry, and we want to give you the best results possible. We carry a wide variety of fillers because some are specifically created for longevity in various treatment areas (such as the lips). Once your treatment goals are established we’ll present you with all the options to ensure you get the maximum results with the longevity you want from this treatment.
How Do I Budget For This Service?
Of course, price is an important factor in any cosmetic procedure. Typically dermal filler service pricing is determined by the cost of each individual product, and pricing is based on the number of syringes used. Typically they range in price from $700-900/syringe! Because each treatment area will require several syringes, most patients budget $2,000-3,500 for this procedure.
It’s normal to be curious why there is such a wide price range for this seemingly simple treatment. But the cost will depend on the individual products that are right for you and the amount of product you’ll need to achieve your specific aesthetic goals.
For example, depending on your treatment goals, if you wanted to add volume to your lips, some patients would need only one syringe of filler for added hydration. However, other patients might need several syringes (or several sessions if they want to dramatically increase the shape of the volume of their lips). Maintenance is also different for everyone as these products metabolize in your body. You’ll want to maintain your look by adding additional fillers over time.
However, most patients find that they need the most filler for the initial treatment and less in subsequent sessions if they keep up with a regular maintenance schedule.
Different treatment areas can require more or less product depending on your goals. However, some areas of the face, such as the jawline, typically require several syringes, whereas adding volume to more delicate areas, such as around the mouth or eyes, less product is needed.
Outside of the product itself, the most important thing to consider when you’re looking into dermal fillers pricing is the quality of the injector. You want to invest in someone who has rigorous medical training, refined technical skills, and a sense of artistry to enhance your natural beauty. You also want to make sure that your provider takes the time to understand your goals, and will work meticulously and intentionally to provide you with the results you desire. At Aiken, we understand the trust involved in this treatment. We take these treatments very seriously and care about our patient’s satisfaction.
