How much are Dermal Fillers

How Much Are Dermal Fillers?

One of the first things that we get asked by clients who call up enquiring about dermal fillers is ‘how much are dermal fillers?’. It’s a very valid question; you need to have an idea of how much you’re looking at spending.

There are a couple of things you should know about the price which I will tell you about in just a moment. 

Our clients have fed back to us that they first ask about the price of dermal fillers because, simply, they’re not sure what else to ask. You may feel similarly, so I’m going to help. There are some things that you should consider asking about that are possibly more important than price, and I’ll tell you about those also.

Well, how much are they?

This will vary a bit depending on where in the UK you are and the brand of filler that you’re offered.

If there’s one thing that I’d like to impress on to you is that when you have dermal fillers, you are paying for a service not just a vile of filler. A dermal filler service means you are paying for: 

  • Your medical practitioner. Please consider going to a medical professional as they can deal with any possible side effects should they occur quickly and effectively.
  • Your practitioner’s initial filler training and any additional training they choose to undertake.
  • Experience. This is not to be underestimated so please do ask your practitioner how long they’ve been performing this treatment and roughly how many treatments they do a day/week/month. This will impact safety, comfort, and outcome. 
  • Insurance.
  • Advanced training. They’ll need this for treatment areas such as tear trough filler and non-surgical rhinoplasty, and you should expect to pay a bit more for these treatments.
  • Advanced techniques. These can make for a better result and a more comfortable treatment but are of course dependent on additional and advanced training and, of course, experience.
  • Filler. The quality and safety profile of the filler(s) your practitioner uses. There’s also a skill, which comes from experience, in knowing what fillers are best for your particular concern and your unique features. As it stands the fillers that we use at our St. Albans skin clinic are Belotero, Teosyal, Juvederm, and Restylane.
  • And finally, aftercare. This aspect of the service is not to be underestimated. I’m sure that you’ve heard stories where people have had issues following their filler treatment only for the practitioner to refuse to help them. We always call our dermal filler clients the day after treatment to see how they’re recovering, answer any questions they have and, should we want to see them for some reassurance, we can do this that day. This call also opens the communication channel so that even if it’s a few days down the line that a client has questions, they’re comfortable in the knowledge that we want to support them after treatment.

At our Hertfordshire skin clinic, our dermal filler treatment starts at £255.

What is the longest-lasting dermal filler?

There is no set answer for this because it absolutely depends on the individual; this is said from a place of experience in treating clients with a huge variety of fillers over the course of decades. Factors such as your individual metabolism, the amount of exercise you do and your lifestyle have a definite impact on longevity. 

Aesthetic medicine is much like any other branch of medicine; there will be a manufacturer’s guide to each product but the reality is that every individual will respond slightly differently. 

As a loose rule, the thicker the product the longer it should last. However, it wouldn’t be right to place a very thick filler in superficial wrinkles, for example. 

From our experience, the quality of the filler will impact longevity as well; you will pay more for premium products because, quite simply, they are more expensive. 

Rather than ‘what is the longest-lasting dermal filler?’, the questions really should be ‘what is the best dermal filler for the area I want to be treated’ and ‘what is the quality of the filler like?’.  

How to prepare for dermal fillers

Our Independent Nurse Prescriber and dermal filler trainer, Natalia Ostrowska, has some tips to help you prepare for your dermal filler treatment:

“Aside from doing your research into where you go for your dermal fillers, my recommendations would be to avoid alcohol for a minimum of 24-hours prior. Alcohol thins your blood and makes you more likely to bruise. Other common things that thin your blood are aspirin, Ibuprofen, fish oils, St. John’s Wort, garlic pills, ginseng and ginkgo. 

Additionally, make sure that you’re fully hydrated for at least 24 hours prior to and on the day of treatment. This will help your recovery.

Arnica is a natural supplement that can help reduce bruising and swelling. You can take arnica tablets in the week leading up to your treatment and then continue through your recovery. Following treatment, you can gently apply arnica cream to the treated area, and your practitioner is likely to apply a recovery cream that contains arnica immediately following the treatment.”  

Pro tips when looking for a dermal filler treatment UK

  • Take claims of being ‘leaders’ or ‘leading experts’ with a pinch of salt-our practitioners have had training alongside people who have never performed a filler treatment before and then seen that shortly after they’re calling themselves an ‘expert’. Ask the practitioner direct questions about their experience as in the above points. As they say, the proof of the pudding is in the eating.
  • You can use the CQC and/or Save Face to look for your practitioner; being on these registers means that the practitioner has had to prove that they are qualified and had appropriate training, they are who they say they are, they’re treating in a safe and hygienic area, and they always have your care and safety in the forefront of their minds.

    I had an excellent Hydrafacial which was recommended to me by Jane. I had my treatment with Nikki, who was so friendly and made me feel comfortable from start to finish. She was so professional and gave me all the information about each step of the facial. She struck the perfect balance between getting to know me/building a rapport, and also giving me the chance to switch off and relax. It was a lovely treatment and I’m so grateful to Nikki for all her knowledge and skill. My skin felt amazing afterwards and I received so many compliments about my “glowing skin”! Thank you for making it such a personable experience. We also added on the Slimyonik treatment which was so lovely and relaxing. I was able to add this on last minute after being recommended by Kerri. Again, tailoring the treatment to me personally added so much to my overall experience. I’m so glad I added this to the treatment and would recommend the skin to love clinic to anyone. Thank you Nikki, Jane & Kerri.

    10/10 - outstanding advice and treatment from Jane at Skin to Love. I had a burst capillary on my nose which I was covering for 2 years. With one consultation and one course of treatment Jane removed it. I should have consulted her sooner. Jane is now my ‘go to’ skin adviser. Quality service and exceptional value for money. Thank you

I am very pleased with my treatment with Stuart and Jane both of whom took plenty of time to discuss my requirements, desired outcomes and exactly what to expect, including step by step explanation during treatment. Can’t wait to see the results emerging and beyond
    Dr Emma was so patient and gentle during my procedure. She is very good at what she does and is so kind! The treatment was one big step to making me feel more confident with my appearance and it is reassuring that she will answer any and all questions I have.

    Fabulous place. From the moment you step through the door you are warmly welcomed. Natalia is very knowledgable and friendly. She really listened to my concerns sensitively and gave me all the options available without pushing me to make a decision. I was given all the time I needed to make my choice and when I went back for my treatment it was such a relaxing experience. I went away knowing exactly what I needed to do as after care and I highly recommend Skin to Love

    Had my first session of Sculptlift, with Jane. I had so many questions and Jane explained in simple terms enabling me to understand what to expect. The procedure was painless and Jane talked me through every step. I was left without bruising which was suprising as I usually bruise quite badly. I am looking forward to seeing the final results.

    I cannot recommend this establishment enough. The receptionist was lovely and greeted me with a bright smile. Emma was friendly, kind and put me right at ease. After seeing how much my issue bothered me, she offered me an appointment the same day during her break to sort out my problem. I’m so happy and relieved that my issue is 95% sorted. Thank you so much Skin to Love! You’ve certainly got a customer for life now! I’ll be telling all my friends about this little gem.

    I have seen Jane a few times for my skin tag removal and it’s been an absolute amazing service!! She’s been super calming and helped me every step and if I had any tension it was gone in a minute or so, she get rid of all the issues super quick and pain free and has been super helpful with the healing process afterwards too. This clinic is quite far from me but I am willing to travel for such a good service. Would recommend to everyone you’ll be really happy
