What are Dermal Fillers?
When it comes to providing dermal fillers in Phoenix, Arizona, a popular question many individuals have is “what is it?” The majority of us hear about dermal fillers in passing, being one of the most popular treatments currently (second only to Botox® and other neuromodulators), but an explanation of dermal fillers isn’t commonly offered – we tend to just see the gorgeous results. Let’s start by answering the question “what are dermal fillers?” before we dive into the cost of dermal filler, some of the surprising use-cases for the treatment, and of course, stunning dermal filler before and after results.
Dermal Filler Explained
Dermal filler is an injectable treatment used to smooth lines in skin, soften the appearance of creases, rejuvenate volume that has been lost, and enhance or restructure facial features. Dermal filler itself is offered by several different companies, each with their own unique benefits and longevity. It’s important to note that even with the longest lasting dermal fillers, which is the collagen-stimulating filler, Bellafill®, all fillers are temporary. Most commonly, your dermal filler will need to be redone after 6-12 months. Fillers are certainly a treatment that requires upkeep to maintain the same results you saw after you first got your fillers.
Cost of Dermal Filler
Particularly because it’s a temporary treatment, the cost of dermal filler is quite an important consideration for interested patients. The price of filler ranges between $425-$899 per syringe injection. On average, a patient will require at least two syringes to achieve the results they are looking for. Depending on the type of filler necessary for your treatment area, and the quantity of syringes required, you could expect to pay a couple thousand dollars (or more) each year for your dermal filler treatments. The cost of dermal filler is certainly quite the expense, but when it comes to the gorgeous results of dermal filler treatments, it’s easy to see how the cost is justified.
What is Dermal Filler used for?
We often see filler being used to make lips more plump, which is where many of our minds initially go when we think about fillers, but there are actually far more use-cases for dermal fillers than just lip injections. Due to dermal fillers binding with water within our skin, they are able to offer some truly amazing, and truly surprising, benefits. Dermal filler can be used to lift the appearance of the ever-dreaded “double chin” many of us are self-conscious of as we age. They can also sculpt facial structures to revive skin that has lost its elasticity. Perhaps the most surprising, though, is dermal fillers can be used to treat the appearance of aging on places such as hands. The use cases for dermal fillers are endless. Check out some of the stunning dermal filler before and after results our patients have achieved thanks to their treatment.
