According to the latest statistics from the American Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, cosmetic dermal filler treatments–or soft tissue fillers–have increased by 8% in the last year. Allergan stated that in the U.S., dermal filler treatments increased 17% in unit sales.
Although Botox is a more popular household name, dermal fillers work a bit differently. These Hyaluronic Acid (HA) filler injections add volume to deep wrinkles, hollow cheeks, and help plump lips. They can also help contour certain aspects of the face as well. As we age, our skin loses elasticity. Dermal fillers like Juvederm, Restylane, and Perlane are able to help restore volume without the risk or expense of surgery.
Clients enjoy dermal fillers because there is no downtime or recovery period and results appear almost instantly. It’s also reported that dermal fillers are a very low risk treatment, which may contribute to it’s increased popularity. Over the last several years, dermal fillers have been one of the top nonsurgical cosmetic treatments performed in the United States. In fact, over one million treatments were performed last year alone.
Medical professionals (doctors, physicians nurses, etc.) are the only ones who can administer dermal filler treatments–but ONLY if they’ve received training. Adding cosmetic injectables has become more popular in the last decade. For one, more clients are requesting these services. And two, the demand must be met by trained professionals. Also, medical professionals don’t have to worry about the hassle of insurance when providing cosmetic injectable services like dermal fillers and Botox.
Dermal filler treatments can range anywhere from $400 – $800 depending on how much clients need in order to achieve the ideal appearance. However, it only takes medical professionals about 15 – 30 minutes to administer dermal fillers. This means that doctors and nurses are capable of treating dozens of clients in a full day’s time.
