If you’re considering fillers, you might be wondering about how much you need to achieve your desired results. Whether you’re thinking about getting fillers for your lips, cheeks, or temples, this article can tell you about what to expect.
Here are estimates for how many syringes of fillers you need for every treatment:
1. Fillers for the Lips
One syringe of filler is usually enough to augment the lips, regardless of the filler type used. Sometimes, clients request more syringes, and aestheticians allow two or three more syringes to build up. However, these are usually reserved for older patients who have lost definition, structure, or volume in their lips.
Aestheticians usually only limit to one or two fillers to avoid looking overdone. Other filler uses, aside from making your lips plump, include smoothing out lip lines around the mouth. Sometimes, Botox is also used together with filler to perform a lip flip.
2. Fillers for the Cheeks
Two to six syringes of fillers are typically used for the cheeks, depending on the client’s desired results. Sometimes, weight loss and illness can negatively impact the cheeks’ fat pads, causing patients to need more fillers to restore a youthful appearance.
3. Fillers for Brow Lift
Fillers can replace lost volume on the outer corners of the eyes that cause the brows to droop. This is a normal aging-related concern that affects more women since men have more muscle volume in the brows than fat.
One syringe of filler is usually used to pull the brows upward. It is placed with a cannula that reduces any risk of swelling or bruising and results in a profound yet natural-looking brow lift.
4. Fillers for the Chin
Fillers are used for augmenting the chin, which was not available until the past decade. Chin augmentation was usually only performed through surgery, but now, a set of injection techniques can create the same result.
About two to four syringes of fillers are used to augment, sculpt, or recontour the chin. In addition, the bony protrusion on the chin requires using firmer fillers that mimic the bone’s firmness, such as Defyne, Radiesse, and Voluma.
These three filler types are more expensive but last longer, especially when injected deep and adequately.
5. Fillers for Smile Lines
One to two syringes of fillers are used to smooth out smile lines, which is the ideal amount for cheeks that aren’t saggy. Some patients also develop deep smile lines before their cheeks sag. But commonly, patients that require this treatment are those who have lost volume on their cheeks.
Fillers are used for reversing the sagginess, such as at the smile lines and jowls along the jawline. Generally, lifting and re-filling the cheeks changes the smile lines that most patients are happy with.
Whichever treatment you decide on getting, it’s best to try small amounts of syringe first and see the results before deciding to add more. Aestheticians also do not recommend overdoing the treatments so that the outcome still gives you a natural-looking appearance.
