Derma fillers are an effective anti-aging treatment to reduce lines and wrinkles from the face without surgery. A variety of injectable facial fillers have been approved by the FDA for specific aesthetic purposes. Rejuvenate Medical Spa, led by Dr. Bijan Farah, is a premier provider of various safe, proven, and FDA approved filler injections.

During the initial consultation, Dr. Farah or his expert treatment providers will discuss various aspects of derma fillers, including their estimated costs. The goal is to ensure that the patient can make the best possible informed choices. Patients in Encino, Sherman Oaks, San Fernando, Calabasas, CA, and nearby areas have an opportunity to receive non-surgical aesthetic treatments, including injectable fillers, at Rejuvenate Med Spa.

Cost Comparison with Surgery

For some people, the prohibitive costs of plastic surgery may prove to be a deterrent even if they are keen to reduce the signs of aging from the face. A procedure such as facelift may cost several thousand dollars, and involve a significant amount of downtime as well. In most cases, the cost of such cosmetic surgeries is not covered by health insurance.

For patients who are reluctant to spend a substantial amount of money on an elective surgery for facial rejuvenation may consider dermal fillers as a much more cost-effective treatment alternative. The total cost of a derma filler treatment will only be a fraction of what an average facelift surgery would cost. The benefits of surgery are longer lasting, but with derma fillers, it is possible to repeat treatments in the future to prolong the effects.

Cost Variations

The cost of anti-aging derma fillers can vary because several hyaluronic acid based, synthetic based, and collagen based fillers are available in the market. The cost of each type of filler inject will differ. Furthermore, the patients may require treatments in different volumes, and the surface area to be treated will also differ in case of each patient. Some patients may opt for a series of treatment sessions stretched over a period of time for longer lasting results.

The location of the medical spa can also make a difference to the cost because the average cost of living will be different in different areas. For instance, the average cost of treatment at a med spa in Encino, Sherman Oaks, San Fernando, Calabasas, CA, and nearby locations will be different from the average cost of the same treatment in, say, Oklahoma City.

Cost Consideration

In case of a Hyaluronic acid based derma filler such as Juvederm XC Ultra, the average cost of treatment will range from $500 to $700 per syringe. If the patient chooses Juvederm XC Ultra Plus, the cost may go up slightly. In case of Restylane wrinkle filler injections, the cost may range from $450 to $800 per syringe.

If the medical spa is running a special promotion program or the manufacturer is offering a rebate for a fixed period, the patient may be able to receive the treatment at a lower cost. When the treatment is taken as a package along with other treatments, the med spa may be able to offer a lower price.

Medical Spa | Encino | Sherman Oaks | San Fernando | Calabasas | CADerma fillers are injectable facial fillers that are designed to reduce the signs of aging from the face without surgery. These anti-aging fillers have become increasingly popular in recent years. The fillers do not involve any downtime, and most will fill wrinkles and lines to provide a smooth skin within 30 minutes. Results with derma fillers can typically last for about four months to a year, and even more in some cases.

Some of the fillers also work effectively as skin volumizers, and help to lift and plump the cheeks, augment thin lips and add volume to the sagging facial skin. Rejuvenate Medical Spa, led by Dr. Bijan Farah, is a state of the art facility providing a range of FDA approved derma filler treatments. Patients in Encino, Sherman Oaks, San Fernando, Calabasas, CA, and nearby locations have an opportunity to receive injectable fillers and other non-surgical aesthetic treatments at the med spa.

Hyaluronic Acid Based Fillers

A variety of anti-aging fillers are available to suit different aesthetic needs of patients. It is important to choose the right type of wrinkle filler and it must be administered by an expert at a reputed medical spa facility. Hyaluronic acid based fillers are the most widely used and popular category of derma fillers. Hyaluronic acid is a natural substance present in the skin that works to tighten and firm up the skin.

The derma filler with this substance in gel form is injected directly into the targeted areas of the skin to stimulate collagen production and lead to effective and sustainable outcomes. No prior allergy tests are need with Hyaluronic acid based fillers because these are highly biocompatible. Rejuvenate Med Spa provides a range of these fillers to patients in Encino, Sherman Oaks, San Fernando, Calabasas, CA, and other areas.

Results with hyaluronic fillers can last for several months to more than a year. Some researchers suggest that repeated treatments with these fillers will promote the natural collagen production more effectively, and help reduce the wrinkles and lines more naturally. Some research evidence also indicates that less filler volume may be needed over time to achieve the same results. Juvederm, Restylane, and Perlane are among the most popular Hyaluronic acid based fillers.

Synthetic Facial Fillers

A few wrinkle fillers are produced with substances fabricated in the laboratory, and having no relation with the natural ingredients in the skin. Some aesthetic experts are of the opinion that fillers in this category may provide a longer lasting effect. However, natural hyaluronic acid based fillers are still more popular because of their negligible side effects and natural looking results.

Radiesse is a leading synthetic wrinkle filler, which contains calcium hydroxylapatite particles suspended in a gel. Results with Radiesse can last for about one year. However, some researchers believe that natural collagen production may gradually occur around the micro spheres of Radiesse, which could result in longer lasting outcomes over time. The FDA has approved Radiesse for treatment of deeper facial lines, including nasolabial folds.

Another synthetic anti-aging filler is Sculptra, which contains synthetic poly-L-lactic acid. It can effectively volumize the facial skin and the results can last for up to one year. Sculptra is designed for injecting in the deeper layers of the skin below the muscles, and not for injecting into fine lines on the surface.
