Bellafill is a permanent filler that is mostly collagen originating from cows but also containing PMMA, or polymethyl-methacrylate. PMMA is a substance the human body can’t metabolize, which is why Bellafill’s results last for up to five years. FDA-approved for correcting nasolabial folds, or smile lines, and also acne scars, Bellafill has off-label uses such as augmenting the lips. Dermal fillers are typically sold in pre-filled syringes. The average cost in the United States for a syringe of Bellafill is $1000.00 to $1500.00. And many things will influence the final Bellafill cost.
THESE FACTORS WILL AFFECT YOUR BELLAFILL COST
The cost of Bellafill depends on the number of syringes needed to correct whatever issues are being targeted, so the amount of filler used is the biggest factor determining how much you’ll pay. For minor corrections, two syringes produce good results. People who need more extensive treatment may require five or more syringes, possibly up to eight. The average patient spends $2,600.00.
The doctor will use more filler to add facial volume, for example, than to correct a few acne scars, so filling in hollow cheeks may require four syringes and cost $4000.00, while treating nine acne scars can be done with one syringe and result in a price tag of $1000.00. Fixing smile lines costs around $2000.00 because more or less two syringes are required. You may only need one syringe for lip augmentation, making that one of the less expensive Bellafill procedures. And obviously, treating several facial areas at the same time will increase the total price.
Also, older clients will spend more to achieve their desired results than younger ones because filling in the deeper lines of a 62-year-old, for example, will require more filler than doing the same procedure on a 40-year-old.
Where the doctor’s office is located also has an impact on prices. Bellafill injections may cost more in upscale neighborhoods due to factors such as higher rent. It will cost less in large cities with many clinics because competition for clients drives down prices. And just as with other goods and services, you’ll pay different prices in different parts of the U.S. A syringe may run you $1000.00 in Central Florida but only about $700.00 in Orange County in Southern California. The doctor’s level of expertise also affects the cost of injections because highly skilled or Board-certified practitioners charge more for their services.
THE BELLAFILL COST MAY BE HIGHER BUT IT LASTS LONGER
The initial Bellafill cost can be higher than that of other fillers like those based on hyaluronic acid. However, the longevity of the results can make up for it. You have to repeat hyaluronic acid-based filler injections often to maintain the results because the outcomes usually last only months, maybe a year. With Bellafill, you’ll enjoy results for many years. So, while a hyaluronic acid filler might cost $300 to $800 less per syringe than Bellafill, the need for a bigger number of injections in the long-term means treatment with Bellafill is less expensive in the end. And, of course, it’s hard to put a price on the convenience of only having to see a doctor for filler once every five years.
