Dermal Fillers

How Much Are Face Fillers

The price of a face filler syringe ranges from £100 to £1000, depending on the type of face filler. The cost of doing face fillers depends onthe cosmetic doctor’s experience, the number of syringes, and the complexity of the treatment, as discussed in this article.  

Face fillers are common because they are inexpensive, temporal, and long-lasting.These fillers cannot stop aging but can lessen signs like skin sagging, frown lines, and wrinkles. Skin aging is a result of less collagen and elastin in the body. Collagen and elastin are responsible for skin structure and elasticity. Production of collagen and elastin in the body drops as the patient ages. A patient can take collagen and elastin supplements to boost collagen and elastin levels in the body. The facial filler is not limited to signs of aging; clients can use face fillers to treat scars or inborn features.

Face Fillers

Face or dermal fillers are masses injected under facial skin tissues for cosmetic purposes. Dermal fillers add volume, treat wrinkles and plump-thin lips, and enhance jawline bones. Face fillers are used in areas like cheeks, lips, tear troughsand chin. Many face fillers contain hyaluronic acid. According to Dovedytis et al. (2020), hyaluronic acid is a gooey, slippery substance found in human bones, joints, skin, and eyes; it helps joints move smoothly. It hydrates the skin maintaining its elasticity. Other lip fillers include PMMA, polyalkylimide, polylactic acid, and calcium hydroxylapatite.

How Much Are Face Fillers

The type of filler determines the cost of face fillers. When doing face fillers, the price will depend on the cosmetic doctor’s experience, qualification, the location of the clinic,the number of syringes you need, and the complexity of the procedure. A syringe of a face filler ranges from £100 to £1000. Simple procedures that require little fillers will be cheaper when compared to complex ones.

Procedure for Face Fillers

A cosmetic doctor will examine a face and map the injection areas to help determine the expected results. Face filler results will not be the same across all cosmetic doctors and types of fillers.

The cosmetic doctor will wash a patient’s face with an anti-bacterial agent before applying a topical numbing cream. The procedure is not painful, but a patient will initially experience some discomfort.

A cosmetic doctor will inject the mapped area with the filler of your choice. The doctor will massage the treated area to align the filler to give the desired look.

Benefits of Face Fillers

No Down Time

A patient cannot notice the effect of face fillers immediately after injections, and the results will keep improving until the fillers have settled fully.Funt& Pavicic (2013) suggested that it takes two to three weeks for face fillers to settle. If you use face fillers with polylactic acid, the effect will not be immediate, but you will notice full results after two to three weeks.

Minimal Risks

When a qualified cosmetic doctor or practitioner performs face fillers, a patient will experience minor side effects like swelling or bruising, which go away after a few days.

Stimulates Collagen Production

According to Cabral et al. (2020), some face fillers like hyaluronic acid and polylactic acid trigger collagen production. More collagen in the body makes the skin grow fewer wrinkles and more elasticity.

Enhances Facial Features

Some facial features like cheekbones and jawline may diminish due to aging;Van Longhem et al. (2015) showed that using face fillers will add volume making the jawline and cheekbones more pronounced.

Side Effects and Complications of Face Fillers

Face fillers are safe with minor side effects and rare complications when done by a qualified aesthetic practitioner. According to Diwan et al. (2020), dermalfillers’side effects include bruising, swelling, and some slight pain; these effects should go away after a few days, but if they last longer than a week, see a cosmetic doctor.Biga et al. (2019) stated that infection, blocking or fracturing of a blood vessel, lumps, or allergic reactions are the major complications you might encounter with face fillers. Complications with face fillers rarely occuror when unqualified personnel does face fillers. Face fillers should be done in a hospital or clinic with qualified personnel to avoid complications. A client should buy lip fillers from the hospital and avoid online shops, even if they are cheaper

How Long Do Face Fillers Last?

Face fillers start wearing off after a few months. Yang et Al. (2020) showed that face fillers could last between three to 18 months, depending on the type of filler used, the area treated, and metabolism. Cheek fillers or fillers used to improve volume last longer than lip fillers. Redoing fillers will ensure they last longer,and the best time to redo fillers is when they are halfway through the anticipated time.
