Fillers are a great way to look younger. They reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and contour the face to get rid of puffy eyes or sunken cheeks. They can plump up the face to remedy lost fat volume, help sagging cheek fat, and augment the facial bones. They can even be used for other purposes like making lips appear more plump or a “liquid nose job,” where strategically-placed filler changes the appearance of the nose. But costs can add up, especially if you’re getting multiple areas done at once.
How do fillers work?
Fillers contain an ingredient such as hyaluronic acid that fills out the skin, stretching it ever so slightly and reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. This filler material stays where it’s placed for a considerable amount of time until it’s eventually absorbed by the body.
How much are fillers?
The cost of facial fillers varies widely and will depend on how many vials are needed and how many areas are filled, as well as what type of filler you get. Typical ranges are from $600 to $1,000, although this number can be a little higher or lower depending on the factors listed.
How long do fillers last?
Fillers, unlike surgery, are not a permanent procedure. With time, the filler is absorbed by the body and skin goes back to the way it looked before. Your provider will let you know when the best time to come in for another set of fillers is. This can be anywhere from a couple months to over a year, but generally, you can expect fillers to last around six to 12 months. The exact time depends on the type of filler, where it’s placed, and even your own lifestyle factors. But short of stretching out the time between top-offs, what can be done to save on the cost of fillers?
Allē is a program that lets you earn points on beauty procedures with participating providers. You can earn points toward discounts on Allē products. You earn points every time you use an Allē product or one of many non-Allē procedures. That means that even things like microdermabrasion or thread lifts can help you save on your fillers.
Allē products include Botox, Kybella (helps reduce fat under the chin), and the Juvederm family of products. Juvederm fillers include Voluma, Vollure, Ultra XC, Ultra Plus XC, and Volbella, which cover a wide range of skin concerns from filling out hollow areas of the face to smoothing wrinkles and folds, as well as lip enhancement.
And for two months, from 8/02/22 to 9/30/22, if you buy two or three syringes of Juvederm, you earn double points. That’s up to $120 worth of points to use toward a future procedure!
