How Much Do Dermal Fillers Cost

Dermal fillers are a non-invasive, quick way to restore volume lost to aging to areas such as the cheeks, lips, hands, and even butt. If you’d like to have a more youthful, plump look, reduce sagging, or balance out your facial proportions, dermal fillers are a perfect choice. How much dermal fillers cost will depend largely on your unique treatment needs and what you’re looking to get out of dermal fillers. Let’s discuss what factors into the overall cost of a dermal filler treatment.

How Do Dermal Fillers Work?

Dermal fillers use naturally occurring substances found in the body or substances that are compatible with the body to smooth out wrinkles, enhance facial contours, and add volume to specific areas. 

Dermal fillers use up to four different types of material, each of which works in a slightly different way.

Hyaluronic Acid Fillers(HA Fillers)

HA fillers work by attracting water molecules to the site where they’re injected. This helps hydrate and moisturize the skin while also providing a firming, plumping effect.

Calcium hydroxlyapatite fillers(CaHA fillers)

CaHA fillers are unlike HA fillers in that the CaHA is suspended in small spheres in a gel-like solution. CaHA naturally exists in the bones. These fillers are used for deeper wrinkles and usually last longer. They also provide the added benefit of stimulating new collagen production. 

Poly-L-lactic acid fillers

Unlike the first two types of fillers, poly-L-lactic acid fillers are made from a substance in the body. However, poly-L-lactic acid isn’t naturally found in the body itself. In fact, poly-L-lactic acid fillers, or Sculptra, aren’t even technically fillers. A common misconception is that Sculptra, a PLLA “filler”, is a dermal filler. Sculptra is a collagen stimulator that works to smooth wrinkles and restore volume to the face. However, it doesn’t fill anything. Instead, it encourages the body to produce more collagen. Even though its mechanism of action is different, Sculptra is a highly effective solution for treating deeper wrinkles with long-lasting effects.

Polymethylmethacryclate (PMMA fillers)

PMMA fillers are actually made of PMMA spheres, a substance that is friendly for use in the body, suspended in collagen gel. When you get PMMA fillers, collagen is injected right into your skin, providing instant lift. PMMA fillers are semi-permanent and a useful solution for deep wrinkles.

Dermal Fillers Cost for Different Types

The type of filler you get will be a big factor in dictating the price. HA fillers may cost less simply because they don’t last as long, while poly-L-lactic acid fillers will cost a little more since the effects will take longer to wear off. Fillers designed to target more difficult areas or more areas in general may also cost more. 

Certain brands of HA fillers, like the Juvederm Ultra Plus, are used to treat moderate to severe lines around the mouth and nose and may be priced slightly higher when used for more severe concerns.

Other Considerations for Dermal Filler Cost

Type of filler isn’t the only factor affecting dermal filler cost. Here are some other factors you should take into consideration:

  • Area being treated. Moderate to severe wrinkles around the nose and mouth and adding desired volume to the cheeks often takes more than one syringe to achieve the desired outcome. Your area of concern will dictate the price tag.
  • Gender. Men tend to have slightly more muscle mass in the face than women, meaning that it may take more product to achieve the desired result.
  • Provider expertise. It takes a lot of specialized training for your providers to be able to achieve natural-looking results with dermal fillers, and you want to make sure you’re receiving treatment from qualified aesthetic professionals.
  • Maintenance. Dermal fillers don’t last forever. The effects wear off anywhere between six months to two years, based on what kind of dermal filler you’re getting. Continued maintenance is required to achieve your desired results. 

Who is a Good Candidate for Dermal Fillers?

Dermal fillers are ideal for people who are experiencing moderate to severe sagging in the face or have wrinkles that they would like to smooth out. They can also be helpful for people who would like a more balanced, proportional face. Dermal fillers can round out the face in certain areas, and luckily, they’re considered safe for everyone.

Frequently Asked Questions about Dermal Filler Cost

Is there a difference in cost between treatments for different areas of the face or body?

The cost of dermal filler treatments will differ depending on the specific area being treated. The cost difference will probably come back to treatment size. Larger areas take more dermal filler products, which will end up costing you more. For example, adding volume to the cheeks will take more product than smoothing out tiny lines on the lips.

Are there financing options for aesthetic treatments like this?

Many providers do offer financing options. You’ll have to talk to your aesthetic provider to determine if they have any payment plans available for you.

Are maintenance treatments included in the initial cost?

Maintenance treatments are typically not included in the cost of dermal fillers, simply because maintaining your results takes the same amount of product you received the first time you got dermal fillers. Some clinics offer maintenance treatments at a reduced price, or may offer dermal fillers in bundled packages.
