In cosmetic skin care procedures such as injectable dermal fillers, cost often becomes a key starting point because these procedures are typically elective and the patient has to pay out of pocket for them. During the initial consultation, the injection provider will explain different aspects of the dermal filler procedure, including its estimated costs.
It is paramount for the patient to make a well-considered decision after looking at various treatment options and their costs. Vein treatment and skin care expert Dr. Gregg Reger of Reger Vein and Skin Specialists provides dermal filler injections to patients in Spring, TX, The Woodlands, and surrounding communities across the horizon this part of the amazing state of Texas.
Advancements in non-surgical skin care over the years have led to the emergence of a wide range of procedure, including laser, ultrasound and radio frequency based treatments. In comparison to most such procedures, cosmetic filler injections often prove to be more cost-effective, considering the absolute cost of injections and the longevity of outcomes. Therefore, dermal fillers presently rank as the number two facial rejuvenation treatment in the US after Botox.
Dermal filler procedure can be performed as an in-office procedure, without the need for general anesthesia or sedation. Therefore, the expenses of a surgical facility as well as the fee of an anesthesiologist are avoided in this treatment. The filler procedure usually requires only one office visit, and can be performed in a few minutes, unlike heat-based or light-based treatments, which often require multiple visits.
Due to these reasons, the costs of filler injections are generally more competitive than other non-surgical medical spa procedures that require multiple treatment sessions. Downtime in case of dermal fillers is minimal, which can turn out to another cost-saver for some working people.
Advanced facial filler procedures such as Radiesse may cost slightly more than hyaluronic acid based fillers such as Juvederm. However, the sustainability of results with Radiesse is likely to be higher, and the costs should be viewed in the context of how long the results may last.
The location of the practice will have an impact on the overall dollar amount of the filler treatment. A practice located in a prime urban center or a main metropolitan area will typically have higher costs due to a high cost of living index compared to a practice in a small town in an interior location.
The quality standards and the level of personalized care and services provided at a particular medical spa as well as the skill and experience of the treatment provider may also influence the actual monetary amount of the procedure.
Extent of Treatment
The number of injection vials required to treat a particular patient will affect the costs as the provider may charge on a per vial basis. Some patients may need a combination of two dermal fillers or an additional procedure, which will add to the costs.
Patients should also check with the provider for any rebate or package price in case of multiple procedures. Dr. Reger receives patients from Spring, TX, The Woodlands, and nearby areas for dermal filler treatments.
