On average, facial fillers cost $750 or more per syringe. Depending on the type of filler you choose, you may pay over $1000 per syringe. Furthermore, more than one syringe is often required.
On top of this, your provider may charge additional fees based on their expertise and skill, consultation costs, additional procedures, and more. As always, the best way to know the cost of your facial fillers procedure is to schedule a consultation appointment with us.
How Much Do Facial Fillers Cost?
Ultimately, the cost of facial fillers varies depending on the following factors:
Type of Dermal Filler
Dermal filler prices vary by type, and there are many types of facial fillers. Each one fulfills a different role.
For example, hyaluronic acid fillers are typically meant to reduce the appearance of nasolabial folds, moderate wrinkles, and fine lines. A hyaluronic acid filler can also add volume to the cheeks if aging has caused the sides of your face to appear “sunken” or “deflated”.
If your face filler has a hyaluronic acid formula, it may last for six to twelve months.
As stated above, many types of fillers exist. But beware of cheap dermal fillers. If someone tells you a dermal filler cost that is less than several hundred dollars, be skeptical. Most dermal fillers are at least $750 per syringe, and many face fillers are over $1,000 per syringe.
Dermal filler injections of materials that are not FDA-approved can be very dangerous. We recommend only working with accredited facilities and board certified providers. So, are cheap dermal fillers worth it? Absolutely not.
How Many Syringes Are Required
Another factor affecting the cost of dermal fillers is how many syringes are required to achieve your goals. For example, injecting hyaluronic acid fillers may require two or more syringes. If you only need lip filler, you may only need one syringe. This is something you can discuss with your provider at your consultation.
Your Provider’s Level of Skill
Your can learn more about a provider’s competency and training at your dermal fillers consultations. Dermatologists, plastic surgeons, and other medical professionals can all perform filler procedures on the facial skin as long as they are certified, well-trained, and have adequate experience.
We recommend always meeting with your provider beforehand to discuss what dermal filler treatments would be right for you. Then, take some time to consider your options and be sure you want to move forward before booking your appointment.
And finally, although we can estimate the average cost of facial fillers based on the above factors, if you require additional care in the form of other treatments or surgery, your ultimate bill will of course go up. It’s not uncommon for patients to seek out facial fillers as an add-on to another procedure.
Facial Balancing With Fillers Cost
Sometimes, a patient will come in requesting “facial balancing”. This procedure involves using fillers at various points on the face to essentially balance out your entire facial profile.
It looks different for every patient. For this reason, pricing accurately is challenging. Please schedule a consultation to learn more about the cost of facial balancing with fillers.
FAQ: Dermal Fillers
What is the difference between dermal fillers and Botox?
Dermal fillers like hyaluronic acid and poly l lactic acid are FDA-approved injections meant to plump the face or lips, add volume, create more symmetry, correct nasal imperfections, and fill some types of deep wrinkles. A hyaluronic treatment, for example, is formulated to actually fill and plump from beneath the skin.
Botox is a neuromodulator. This substance actually relaxes your underlying muscles to smooth out wrinkles. Dysport does something similar. Botox & Dysport have FDA approval.
How long will my facial fillers last?
Most of the time, temporary fillers will last from six to twelve months. Sometimes, certain fillers may last for several years.
“How long do facial fillers last?” is actually the most common question we receive in regards to this procedure. But sometimes, it can be difficult to provide an accurate answer that applies to everyone.
Ultimately, the lasting power of your fillers will depend on what type of fillers you received, where on the face you had injections, your age and skin elasticity, how fast your metabolism is, whether you smoke or not, and other factors.
What will I look like right after getting dermal fillers?
When you look at facial fillers before and after images, you may see patients before they’ve had fillers and then after several weeks or even months of having them. This “after” look will usually be different from how they looked right after their procedure.
Right after getting your filler cosmetic procedure, side effects will vary. But some patients may experience redness, swelling, and/or bruising. These symptoms should dissipate over the following days.
How much do dermal fillers cost with insurance?
Health insurance will not cover the cost of lip filler, cheek filler, chin filler, jawline filler, or other dermal fillers used for cosmetic purposes.
