Pricing varies depending on the type and volume of filler used and viscosity of the filler. Many fillers, including Perlane and Juvederm, are priced by syringe. Thicker products last longer but cost more for each injection.
Skill of the practitioner significantly influences duration. Surgeons with superior application skills know exactly where to place the filler to achieve results with minimal product. Patients over the age of 40 have less collagen and fat in the cheek areas and require more frequent injections to maintain a youthful look. Additionally, people who want to see more dramatic results will need to have more frequent touchups to keep their cheeks full.
