The cost of dermal filler injections will vary according to the type of active ingredients they may contain. However, they will cost significantly less than cosmetic surgery and many other rejuvenation procedures for the face.
During the initial consultation, the surgeon will discuss all aspects of cosmetic filler injections, including their estimated dollar amount.
Board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Bram Kaufman provides dermal filler injections to patients in Beachwood, Pepper Pike, Cleveland, OH, and surrounding communities.
Dermal fillers do not require sedation or general anesthesia. The patient can undergo the treatment at the surgeon’s office rather than a surgical venue. These aspects make a dermal filler procedure considerably more cost competitive than a facial cosmetic surgery.
Dermal fillers are more affordable even when compared to some other non-invasive rejuvenation treatments for the face. These treatments may include advanced procedures involving ultrasound, RF, laser, or deep chemical peels. Working professionals can also benefit from the fact that filler treatments do not have a specific downtime, which means they will not have to take off from work for this procedure.
Furthermore, dermal filler procedures do not need any specific preparation or laboratory tests, post-treatment consultations, or prescription medications. These advantages make dermal filler injectables more affordable than many other anti-aging treatments for the face.
Advanced dermal filler procedures such as Sculptra Aesthetic or Radiesse may be more expensive than hyaluronic acid-based filler injectables such as Belotero, Restylane, and Juvederm. But the more potent fillers will also generate more sustainable outcomes. Therefore, the costs should be compared in relation to the effectiveness and potential sustainability of the outcomes.
The location of the practice will affect the total cost of the dermal filler procedure. The average cost of living at different places varies.
This will impact the prices of services and products in a specific city or state. The cost of a dermal filler injection depends on the expertise of the cosmetic surgeon, quality standards at their practice, experience of the administrative staff, and the type of individualized services and care.
Extent of the Treatment
While some individuals may need minimal treatment in a specific part of the face, other may require procedures for multiple locations on the face. Some patients may need a liquid facelift treatment which is a combination of at least two injectables. The provider may determine the costs according to the amount of filler gel or the quantity of injections used in the procedure.
A practice may sometimes offer a discounted price or rebate when a dermal filler procedure is combined with other treatments. Many financing alternatives are available. The patient should evaluate these options after the approximate cost has been established.
At the time of initial consultation, the patient should feel free to ask questions related to the costs of dermal fillers. They should compare different treatment options before making a final choice.
