How Much Dermal Filler Do You Need?

Dermal fillers are used to reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines, as well as to plump up lips and reduce the appearance of acne scars, facial folds, and other skin imperfections. However, you can’t just walk into a clinic and ask for the biggest syringe they have; your filler dosage needs to be customised based on several factors, including your unique skin type, how severe your wrinkles are, how old you are, and how large your facial features are.

Dermal fillers work by injecting a substance (due to Australian law we can’t mention brands or ingredients) that adds volume or surface area when injected beneath the skin. In some cases, it can take up to two weeks for you to see the result in full.

Examine yourself, inside and out

In order to determine how much dermal filler, you need, it’s important to first examine yourself. This means taking a look at both your inner and outer self. What do you see? Are there any areas that you would like to improve? Once you have an idea of what you’d like to change, it will be easier to determine how much dermal filler you need. Remember, too little can lead to unwanted results while too much can lead to complications or side effects. Consult with a medical professional before beginning treatment so they can provide their expert opinion on the best course of action for you personally.

Check your expectations and budget

Before you even start thinking about how much dermal filler you might need, it’s important to have a realistic idea of what you’re hoping to achieve and what you’re willing to spend. There are a lot of factors that go into the cost of dermal fillers, so it’s important to do your research and consult with a professional before making any decisions. However, most people can expect to pay anywhere from $300-$700 for one syringe* depending on where they live and their desired result. Some patients may find that they only need one syringe while others may require more. Keep in mind that some areas require multiple treatments before the desired result is achieved.

Understand the process

The first step is to understand the process of how dermal fillers work. Dermal fillers are injected into the skin in order to add volume and fullness. The amount of filler that is needed will depend on the area that is being treated and the desired results. As a general rule, it is recommended to start with a small injection of about 0.5 cc for each 1 sq cm (1/25 square inch) of skin, then wait 15 minutes before repeating this procedure if there is still a lack of result. If you still want more volume, repeat the same process again after waiting another 15 minutes. Continue this pattern until you achieve your desired look or use more if necessary.

Consider your options

When it comes to dermal fillers, you have a lot of options. Do some research and decide which type of filler is right for you. Then, consult with a professional to get an idea of how much filler you will need. They will take into account your age, skin type, and desired results.

The best candidates for an injectable treatment are those who are realistic about their goals, and realistic about treatment times and side effects. It’s important to be realistic about your goals for dermal filler injections. The results are not permanent, and you will need to return for follow-up treatments. It’s also important to be realistic about the side effects of the treatment. Swelling, bruising and redness are all common side effects that usually resolve within a week or two. Areas injected with dermal fillers may take up to three months before returning to their normal appearance. Be sure to consult with a certified injector before proceeding with any treatment, as they can help guide you through your options and determine what is best for your skin type.
