The Cost of Dermal Filler Injections: Affordable Facial Rejuvenation By William P. Baugh on July 30, 2015

A woman smilingAt Full Spectrum Dermatology, patients in the greater Fullerton area can count on our team to provide the best possible care and offer honest answers to all of their questions. This includes facial plastic surgery procedures as well as non-surgical injections of dermal fillers to reduce wrinkles and fight signs of aging.

Dermal fillers are a great option for many patients, but we often get asked how much these kinds of treatments cost. Let's address this issue right now.

What is the cost of dermal fillers?

The cost of dermal fillers actually varies. Some fillers are more expensive than others, and sometimes the variance can lead to some major issues when it comes to defining and average price and establishing a general price range. For that reason, providing either of those seems to not convey all of the issues that go into dermal filler pricing.

With all that in mind, we would be more than happy to provide patients with a price quote for their dermal filler injections during a consultation at our practice. This will include breakdowns of the various costs involved and price comparisons between different types of dermal fillers.

Factors That Affect the Cost of Dermal Filler Injections

Some of the factors that affect the cost of dermal fillers include:

  • The location of the practice
  • The credentials of the plastic surgeon or cosmetic dermatologist
  • The type of dermal filler to be used
  • The cosmetic issue that the patient wants to have addressed
  • Special promotions, pricing, and discounts that are unique to individual practices

How do dermal fillers compare to facial plastic surgery?

In terms of price, dermal fillers are far less expensive than traditional facial plastic surgery, saving patients thousands of dollars. With that in mind, however, dermal fillers only last for several months in general, meaning that repeat treatments would be necessary to prolong the aesthetic results. Still, multiple sessions with dermal fillers spaces months apart will mean lasting results for a few years that are still less expensive than a facial surgery procedure.

Are dermal fillers covered by my insurance?


Dermal fillers are cosmetic and elective in nature rather than medically necessary. As a result, they are rarely if ever covered by health insurance.

How do monthly financing payment options work?

If the cost of dermal filler treatment is just out of your price range, there are monthly payment plans to consider that can place the treatment within reach. These financing options function much like a credit card or normal loan. Patients will pay back the amount owed in monthly installments, with a reasonable interest rate applied to the total cost of the procedure.

Discussing Treatment and Payment Options In Full Detail

During the consultation process, all questions and concerns will be addressed in full to ensure that you make the best choices with regard to your aesthetic goals.
