On average, most people need about two filling syringes to fill the cheek area (one per side). This number may vary depending on the shape of the face and bone structure. Generally, hands require two to three syringes. The results of this procedure last longer than other fillers, although swelling and bruising may occur afterwards.
Patients often appreciate that this is a cost-effective procedure, and it can be combined with laser or microneedle treatments to address skin laxity and sun spots at the same time. Dermal fillers are also great for softening the appearance of bags and dark circles under the eyes. To determine how many syringes are needed to achieve the desired result, it is best to consult with a specialist. The area under the eyes is delicate and must be handled with care.
Most patients need one to two syringes, but this may vary from person to person. Although fillers can be expensive, they are worth the cost as you will earn money from them. When budgeting is an issue, patients usually start with one or two syringes and then add more if needed. Many patients only need one or two syringes to get the desired improvement.
At the time of retreatment, it is not uncommon to need less treatment as some of the results are long-lasting. For example, one syringe of Restylane Kysse can be used immediately after injection, as well as one syringe of Juvederm XC+. This helps avoid post-procedure ridges that can occur when using products such as Juvederm, Belotero and Restylane Silk when treating dark circles. This patient used two filling syringes, one for her restylane silk lips and one for raising the corners of her mouth with Restylane L.
